  Testa retires - Weinheimer in
Posted by: jameson245 - 08-17-2019, 10:42 AM - Forum: 2019 - Replies (1)

BOULDER, CO — Boulder Deputy Police Chief Carey Weinheimer, a 29-year veteran of the Boulder Police Department, will serve as interim police chief when Chief Greg Testa retires Sept. 3. Testa has served as Boulder Police Chief since 2014.
Weinheimer is expected to serve in the role for about 10 months until a new police chief is hired in 2020.
"Deputy Chief Weinheimer has played an essential role in maintaining the high standards of the department and in building our strong relationships with community members to ensure the Boulder Department continues to represent Boulder's values and a safe community for all individuals who live, work and visit here," said Jane Brautigam, Boulder city manager, in a statement. "I am confident that Deputy Chief Weinheimer is well prepared to lead the department with the full support of the leadership team and the respect of our officers throughout the organization."
Testa, who worked for the Boulder Police Department for 32 years, said it's been an "honor to serve the community."
Weinheimer joined the Boulder Police Department in 1990, and has since served as an officer, detective, sergeant, commander and deputy chief. He has been closely involved in the management of the police department and has worked with the city organization to launch the first-ever Boulder Stop Data Report, the city said. Weinheimer also is a member of the city's racial equity team and works with the Government Alliance on Racial Equity to improve treatment of all community members.
"We are fortunate that our police department is a healthy organization, and one that continues to challenge itself to be innovative, transparent and to reflect our community values," said Brautigam. "Deputy Chief Weinheimer understands the Police Department and the community. I am confident that he will be a strong interim chief until a new police chief is selected."
The city will conduct a search process for the next chief of police beginning in the fourth quarter of this year.
"In our search for Boulder's next police chief, understanding this community's values, maintaining strong department leadership, and partnering with residents to ensure Boulder has a transparent and equitable police force is essential" Brautigam said. "As part of our selection process, we will provide opportunities for the community to meet with the finalists and provide input on the candidates."
A date has not yet been set to fill the position. The city will work closely with law enforcement officers from outside organizations to evaluate candidates on policing standards, leadership, experience and preparedness to serve the Boulder community as chief of police.

  Stephen Diamond's thoughts
Posted by: jameson245 - 08-08-2019, 06:18 PM - Forum: Ransom Note - Replies (22)

My comments under the line


What follows is a breakdown of the ransom note, exactly as it was written on several pages torn from the bedside pad of Patsy Ramsey and printed with a black felt pen (taken from and then interestingly returned to its original place in the home), before reportedly being found and read by Mrs. Ramsey. According to her, the strange note was apparently intentionally left on the stairs leading down from her bedroom to the home's main level. This odd choice on the part of the writer is curious unto itself. What led him or her to leave the letter on the stairs instead of, say, on the kitchen table or in the bedroom of either John and Patsy or JonBenet? If the intent was for the letter be discovered as early in the morning as possible, how could the alleged kidnapper have known of Patsy's habit of rising early and walking down these stairs to the kitchen to make coffee in the morning, unless the writer was intimately familiar with her daily routine? The note could have been left instead in the bathroom, for instance, where it might have been sooner seen, or right on the Ramsey's nightstand or on JonBenet's empty bed, the latter being the more dramatic and perhaps expected placement, stating and starkly demonstrating that we have taken your daughter from her bed and, to prove it, left this ransom note in her stead. But it was supposedly placed instead on the stairs for some unknown reason. This suggests to me that the ransom note may have been written, but was at least left on the stairs, some time after the family had gone to bed that night after returning from a Christmas party, if indeed it was discovered there in the morning as Patsy claimed. Or, in the theoretical case of a coverup, was placed there either by Patsy, in order to deceive John, or by Patsy and John conjointly after JonBenet was accidentally or intentionally killed that morning. But then, in the latter scenario, there would have been no need to stage it sitting on the stairs in the first place, if indeed it ever was left there by someone. So the story of the ransom note, how and where it was found, and by whom and when, is the first major mystery here. Next, there is the question of who actually wrote the so-called ransom note, something fairly extensive handwriting analysis has so far been unable to definitively answer, despite reported marked similarities to Patsy's writing samples submitted to police. Whether a thorough psychological analysis of this ransom note has previously been conducted by a forensic psychologist in this case is unclear to me. But it certainly seems that such an analysis could potentially provide some valuable clues regarding the ransom note's creator(s).

 pages torn from the bedside pad  - -  nope, we all know the pad was from the first floor back hall.


According to her, the strange note was apparently intentionally left on the stairs  - - what a stupid comment.  Someone didn't ACCIDENTLY leave the note there.

Diamond seems to think an intruder would, of course, want to leave the ransom note on the third floor - - take the risk of waking up the adults.  Is Diamond nutz?  The note was placed in a very logical place - - no way would it be missed there.


Diamond wrote, "the ransom note may have been written, but was at least left on the stairs, some time after the family had gone to bed that night after returning from a Christmas party, if indeed it was discovered there in the morning as Patsy claimed."  The BORG has chosen his position - - the rest of his paper will try to convince the reader he is right.  But yes, the note was left on the stirs sometime after the family got home.  When they first got home, if the note was already on those stairs, JOHN would have seen it as he carried JBR up those stairs.    Diamond doesn't think or reason right on this point and many others.


Like this thought - 
"Or, in the theoretical case of a coverup, was placed there either by Patsy, in order to deceive John, or by Patsy and John conjointly after JonBenet was accidentally or intentionally killed that morning.

So the story of the ransom note, how and where it was found, and by whom and when, is the first major mystery here."


Lots of words to say nothing, IMO.

11 We might have a few blown flashlights around.

"Thomas allowed Shapiro to sit in on a sensitive investigation.  In July, 1997, me to come to the police station to phone Pam Griffin, a friend of Patsy Ramsey, so that he could surreptitiously tape the conversation.  The detective wanted to document a remarkable assertion that Griffin had made to me:  Patsy Ramsey admitted to her that she wrote the so-called "practice note".  However, said Griffin, Patsy claimed it was just the aborted start to an invitation to some event which Patsy couldn't recall.  Thomas allowed Shapiro to monitor my conversation with Griffin.  The session was a bust, though, when Griffin dismissed her previous comments as "speculation" about Patsy's actions."

  caret use indicates college grad
Posted by: jameson245 - 07-07-2019, 04:00 PM - Forum: Disproving Myths - No Replies

In the ransom note, the author wrote that the men watching JonBenet  "do particularly like you" - - then decided to add the word "not".  They put the letter "v" between the first two words and over that wrote "not".   

BORG would have us all believe that the use of a caret proves Patsy wrote the note because only she, a journalism major, would know how to use that caret.  BS - - I was taught how to use a caret - - so was every other public school student who was born in the 50's.  including Patsy.

The interesting thing, IMO, is that I was taught to have the point going to the word to be added, not to the place it was to be put.  

The is what I found online.

[/url]Usage of the Caret Symbol in English Language and Punctuation
If you invert the letter[b] ‘v’[/b] you will obtain a figure like this[b] ‘^’ [/b]which is called as the caret symbol. [b]‘Caret’[/b] is a word from Latin and it literally means[i] ‘to lack something; or to be separated.’[/i] The word is pronounced exactly the way we pronounce the word [b]‘carrot’ [/b]regularly. This peculiar [url=http://www.writeawriting.com/grammar/irony-sarcasm-punctuation-english-language/]character
is extensively found on every keyboard in our contemporary world, but, have you wondered what the use of this caret symbol is?
Well, let’s find out today!
How to Use the Caret Symbol in English Language?
For Proofreading
Initially, this mark originated to be a symbol for proofreaders who wanted to point out mistakes in a text by inserting this mark within the space between the words and insert the particular word or punctuation that was felt needed. For instance, The Sentence
[i]“My father holding the camera, when the light suddenly went out”[/i] will be corrected by a proof reader as follows:
[i]“My father ^was holding the camera, when the light suddenly went out.”[/i]
Thus, if you want to [b]insert something in your text[/b], you can easily utilize this figure within your writing.

The ransom note has the caret upside down.  So much for the BORG evidence against Patsy on that count.

  Injuries to her attacker
Posted by: jameson245 - 07-07-2019, 08:53 AM - Forum: odds and ends - No Replies

We know that JonBenet had some foreign DNA under her nails.  She fought her attacker and probably left marks.  Lou Smit said the Ramseys, as a standard practice, should have been taken to the police station and photographed, checked for injuries.

That didn't happen.  But we know Patsy was very emotional and heavily sedated after JonBenet's body was found - enough so that she required help in the toilet, the shower.  Her friends helped her get dressed.  

There was never any report of injuries on Patsy.     

Just saying.
