Hey, everybody. I decided to start this thread because I've reached what can only be referred to as the final straw. Ever since I started studying this case (way back before my voice had fully changed), I've been bombarded relentlessly with the line that there's no way a mother could do what was done to JB. Well, as if we NEEDED another example as to the fallacy of that argument, there was a case earlier this week in Ohio that really set me off: http://www.19actionnews.com/story/2...-1-year-old-elaina-steinfurth-takes-plea-deal In a nutshell, an Ohio woman named Angela Steinfurth and her boyfriend Steven King Jr killed the woman's 18-month-old daughter Elaina and tried to hide her body inside the garage. But it's the details that made me start this thread. Just a few points: --The mother threw the girl against a wall because she couldn't stand the crying. This inflicted life-threatening injuries. --In defiance of the claim that a mother's natural reaction would be to seek help, Steinfurth and King apparently decided that this was cause for sexual activity. (That REALLY leaped out at me.) --Almost a day later, when the boyfriend realized that the girl was near death, instead of calling for help, he smothered her to death and hid her in a box out in the garage. They then proceeded to lead the police and public on a wild goose chase. When I learned about this one, I went into a rage. This case flies directly in the face of a lot of claims the Ramseys and their supporters have hung their hats on. And to those people, I ask this question: how many innocent little angels have to die?! Because as far as I'm concerned, the Ramseys and their propaganda ministers are partly to blame for Elaina's death, as well as the deaths of Caylee Anthony and a host of others. Why? Because they've exposed one of the dirtiest, most dangerous secrets of American justice: that even if you ARE guilty, someone out there will be soft enough, dumb enough, or just flat bitter enough at law enforcement to believe you. And when that person is a juror or a lawyer agitating for appeals and acquittals, God help the victims. I can't help but wonder how many "parents" have killed their children because they thought, "Hey! So-and-so got away with it! Why can't I?" Also, I usually don't bring personal disputes into the conversations here on WS, but I'll make a limited exception this one time, because I think it's necessary. And in case anyone thinks I'm doing this purely out of pride or ego, there is a method to my madness. Recently, my theory about what happened to JBR was derided as, and I quote, "pure fantasy" without a shred of fact behind it. To those people I would say this: what happened to Elaina is pretty much what I think happened to JBR, and IT is DAMN SURE not fantasy! It happened! And on a personal note, I would not have spent FIVE YEARS of my life and $1000+ of my own money so people could read "fantasy." And I DAMN WELL wouldn't think of charging them for it! This Dragon is breathing fire!
