Scott Peterson Sentencing...

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
We just reported that he was sentenced to death. I was kind of curious as to what this "new information" was that might've proved he was innocent.

yeah I was watching FOX news when I was at the gym... I would have liked to have heard this new info as well...

It's gonna have to be pretty miraculous information for me to believe he's innocent!

I heard that the "innocent" news came from a lead that was never researched or checked out, that one of his neighbors said a "pregnant schoolteacher" walked in on a drug deal in their neighborhood. What a bunch of hoo-haa. His lawyer is just pulling straws. His interview in Newsweek says he firmly believes Scott was framed and is an innocent man.

mmm-hmm.

I did however hear that the prisoners at San Quentin or wherever that death-row place is, where Scott is headed, are very happy! They get a very good-looking inmate to hang out with them. From what I gather, guys in prison for murder put guys like Scott on the lowest rung (men who murder their wives & kids).

I just remembered that I heard that one of the "new" pieces of information supposedly came from an inmate who heard something about a burglary... anyone seen the movie Shawshank Redemption? My thoughts are so did Scott Peterson.

And you're right... people who murder children are basically in danger in jail as the inmates will make their opinions on that clear.

I'm not sure about the sentencing in the first place. I'm not saying he's innocent, but the fact is that he was convicted on circumstantial evidence. I'm just not comfortable with the death penalty being applied when that's the case.

I agree. I believe that he committed the murders but there was no concrete evidence. IMO he was not proven guilty beyond a resonable doubt. I think that the jurors let their emotions make their decision.


Prosecuters had more concrete evidence on OJ Simpson.......

I am not for the death penalty, but I do think there was evidence stronger than it appears. One juror had a very good point, he said if someone wanted to frame Scott why didn't they leave teh bodies at the marina and not in the water? It was iffy they would float up. That sold me on his
guilt.

The courts found him guilty, that is enough for me unless someone can prove otherwise.

I wonder if it's so healthy to allow family to go off on the
person like they did? It sounds like it was horrific in that courtroom today. I mean I TOTALLY Understand why they did that, but what good does it do?

I think it will let the family finally get out their anger and pain towards the man that caused it. Not that it will end the pain/anger but I think getting it out, him knowing how they feel can start the long road to healing~

I think if he did do it, then he deserves to hear it and the family needed to let it all out and say it to him. I guess it didn't do much good except to maybe give the parents their last chance to mourn their daughter, to inflict some pain on him like they've been feeling. Not like it's even close to the same thing, but maybe it helps them. If I lost my child, you can bet I'll be screaming my head off at the murderer.

I can see that, and if he has to put a human face on those he hurt that must be good.

HE won't be any more than he will ever get put to death. HE, like Richard Allen Davis, will be in a protected cell. He will get treated very good! Only thing is he won't go free (for a whiile any way!)

her will die..but he did the crime now he's got to do the time
