    One other thing i noticed in PMPT is how the police right from the start acknowledged that they should kiss the Ramseys as* merely because they are wealthy. They have to be "respected." Anyone who hasnt read PMPT, i say pick it up. there is some shocking stuff in there. For instance, the police wanted to release the house back to the ramseys on the 26th or 27th i believe, but the fbi told them not to. Anyway, back to initial point, if the ramseys hadnt had money, patsy, if not john as well, would be in jail today, IMO.

    I think wealth works both ways:

    1. - It often provides better legal assistance.

    2. - It often provides a public perception of guilt.

    Agreed, and...

    3. - It provides power and the ability to influence the behavior of others, as well as purchase (whether through intimidation, manipulation or straight up "paying off") one's innocence.

    I think so, too.It's a shame all cases aren't treated equally...suspects are suspects and none should be handled with kid gloves.Interrogate and investigate them all thoroughly.

    Yes I agree. Here's my favorite quote about just this very thing.
    Dr. Cyril Wecht called the JBR case a "gross example of what money can buy in America."
