But the DNA didn't match. Did any of you really think it would? Come on. So, now, the charges are dropped. His public defender, one Seth Temin, is having a career day in the media; I'm certain he feels that he himself has personally vindicated the honoable Mr. Karr. Experience now with me his overwhelming emotional conviction on the matter:
We're deeply distressed by the fact they took this man, dragged him back here from Bangkok, Thailand, with no forensic evidence confirming the allegations against him and no independent factors leading to a presumption that he did anything wrong," Temin said.
"We're deeply distressed"??? Who you mean 'we'? Seth, the only thing distressed in your life right now is the seams of your underwear from the chub you're sporting about the assistant DA gig you think is in your near future. Get a grip. Go pick out your 3-series Beemer and shut the hell up.
Back to Karr. What to do now? Personally, I say send this creep's ass right back to Thailand to face charges there. It is so blatantly obvious that this man is a deviant and psychopath, and deserves to be in prison for apparent past crimes against children, things he was under investigation in Thailand for already (Five visits in two years? Come on, it's the sexual tourism capital of the world!); just not for this particular crime. But he'll walk unless there's something else to hold him on. How about making a false report for starters? How about awaiting extradition to Thailand?
