    Peterson gets death penalty

    Looks like Scott Peterson will be taking up residence on Death Row. Haven't seen it posted yet on any of the major news sites around the web, but I just saw it on TV here at the office.

    I believe I am not the only one who is not interested in that overblown case. But I am glad they finally made up their mind.

    Sheesh...and here I was excited to be the first one to post the thread. Certainly was a big deal when the verdict came out. At any rate, yeah, I could kinda care less, just thought we might spawn some sorta fun discussion out of this. Death penalty debate anyone?

    Death penalty? Torture is more fun!

    Sorry about that DC, you can soil one of my threads as payback.

    No, no, you're right. :p Post-9/11 torture is much more up to date. The death penalty has gone out of style in terms of being a cause worth debating, its kinda passe.

    Back to hacking and sneezing and sniffling all over my new coworkers.

    I usually try not to be the first person responding to a thread, something about extreme hijackerism

    Although certainly a heinious crime, I still can't see why this particular case has captured such national attention.


    As far as the death penalty is concerned, it won't bring back the victims or give any real closure to her familiy. Peterson was convicted of a cold, pre-meditated murder and now the State will do the same (and call it legal). To me, the death penalty has always seemed more like revenge than justice.

    Oh, I thought you said Peterbilt, as in the trucks. Did something important happen?

    I remain stunnned that not only can someone be convicted of murder without a shred of hard evidence but can also be executed with the same stunning lack of proof.

    I really don't give a crap about the case either, but the concept of life in prison and or execution because it sure looks like your guilty doesn't sit well with me.

    Ev-i-dence? Is that one of those made up words? We don't need any of that mister, the talking man in the box tells us what to do. I don't know why we listen to such a small man, but listen we will.

    A good looking pregnant woman was killed. That's all the media needs. A pretty face. You never see the faces of ugly women that have been killed or ugly children that have been kidnapped.

    See Jessica lynch, the cute skinny white girl gets a movie and book deal for getting captured, the fat homely black woman who got caught with her gets 5 minutes of airtime.

    I have wondered the same thing.

    The man is most definatly a cad. No one has proved his guilt beyond a shadow of a doubt, though, imho.

    Death penalty is an automatic appeal, if I remember right. Hopefully the next trial won't be as much of a kangaroo court.

    You are right about Cali courts. MJ will get off, methinks. He needs to go to the gas chamber before Scott Petersen. Playing with little kids, he needs to be drawn and quartered in public.

    You can't appeal the ruling, you have to appeal what you think was some sort of injustice during the trial. It isn't like an appeal is a retrial.

    If its an automatic appeal, doesn't it seem kinda strange that you have to appeal an injustice? Does the system assume that every guilty verdict in a murder was a result of a flawed trial? It sure seems that way if an appeal is automatic in this case.

    Ya being where he got the decision on the death deal. It aint gonna happen. He'll just sit awhile in jail.

    Have any of you heard how he did it? I heard he used the swimming pool to drown her. Hmm, smarter then some football players....tho he got off..*walks away.
