A Bizarre Event in a Very Sad Story

A comment about the arrest in the JonBenet Ramsey case: What about that Thai perp walk?

As the suspect, John Mark Karr, is paraded before a cluster of photographers in Bangkok, Thailand, it sounds like he actually confesses to the killing while being jostled about. Then, during what looks like an impromptu press conference, he answers some questions directly, seemingly implicating himself, then offers a "no comment" to others.

I've watched enough Law and Order episodes to wonder if his statements will be admissible later during a trial here in the U.S. Never mind the possibility that he may be falsely claiming responsibility.

A bizarre event in a very sad story.
