Charges against Karr have been dropped due to inconclusive DNA evidence. It has been and remains to be my view that he did not commit this crime. Though I'll freely admit to being wrong if proven otherwise. Howsoever, I do feel that Karr, more coward him, preferred American prisons to Thai ones over the investigations of him by Thai authorities for child molestation, child pornography, and child prostitution. At least here, if a prisoner is beaten by a guard, it becomes known. If a prisoner is tortured, it becomes known. If a prisoner is deprived of food, water, shelter, clothing, or sleep, it is known. Even if a prisoner is deprived of cable television or educational or legal access, it is known. The same cannot be said of Thailand: they have their own laws and methodologies. So I can understand why Karr would make his allegations of wrongdoing if given the choice between which style of prison system.
