Probation for Karr

John Mark Karr is being offered a plea agreement of probation for his alleged possession of child pron as the local sheriff’s department ‘lost’ the evidence, Karr’s computer.  I could see this coming.  Authorities were vague about the nature of the photographs, as if they weren’t really sure that there was anything illegal about them.  Sonoma County officials were no doubt embarrassed by the ‘help’ they received from Boulder, which tried to relieve its embarrassment by pawning him off on Sonoma County (“well, at least we dragged him back from Thailand for something”).  The bottom line is that we have not the slightest evidence that Karr was even a pedophile.  Weird maybe, but in no way a criminal.
