Apparently, the much-vaunted prospect of "the Prison Stud" taking the stand in his own defense is D.O.A. The defense has rested its case, the prosecution can call 8 rebuttal witnesses, and then the deliberations begin.



Since the Soap Opera trial of the new century is finally coming to a close: call the verdict?

FWIW, most interviewed sources on both CNN and Fox are prediction a conviction.

I hope the election coverage buries this story. It is so stupid that a story where one dead person, a pregnent, white woman gets more attention than our 1000+ soldiers killed in Iraq or the about almost all of the 16000+ others murdered each year in the USA. Why this case became nationwide is beyond reason, it should have been only a Northern Califronia regional story. I hope the jury takes it time and reviews the evidence throughly to come to their decision. I also don't want the national press making celeberties of the jurours, no matter what happens. What goes on in the jury deliberations should stay there, and not be spashed all over the world.

Fred, the dude's as guilty as the day is long. I'm sure San Quentin is readying a cell on death row for him.

While I completely agree with you, I also feel that it was rather inevitable that this story get the attention that it did.

Think about all the ingredients involved:
  • both Scott and Lacy were beautiful, well-to-do, white, and (superficially) just trying to live the American dream.
  • Everyone wants justice for a innocent pregnant white woman
  • the story unfolded during the holidays
  • there's a who-done-it
  • there were whacked-out elements introduced:
  • claims of a Satanic cult
  • "Dirty" & "Skeeter"  Insane
  • infidelity
  • lack of tangible forensic evidence (makes for a great "who done it")
  • etc.

    Really no shock at all

    Quite frankly, I don't believe the prosecution proved him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt... not saying I don't think he's guilty, but I do not believe the prosecution proved its case.

    Today the trial goes to the jury...


    ...though I didn't think so until the very end, I do indeed think we'll see a conviction here. Whether it's 1st degree or 2nd degree will be the question I believe.

    I bet he will get a walk, reasonable doubt is a bitch and my understanding of the whole thing had the most damning piece of evidence as being some of his wifes hair in some pliers on his boat. Not sure I could, in good conscience, send a man to his death based on that alone.

    But from where I sit (not the jury box) I am pretty confident he did it.

    Considering that it's been the priority topic for no less than three of the nation's highest rated primetime news shows over the past two years....


    ...I'd say a resounding "yeah, they do".  Big grin

    man this case is odd.

    I think he did it, but I have a feeling he didn't do it.

    Does that make sense?

    So I guess people in swing states complaining about extensive campaign coverage really were just wanted to hear more about this Peterson trail?
    What a sad state of affairs.  Sad

    ...but are you actually surprised by this??

    This trial has all the workings of a Reality-TV Soap Opera:
  • beautiful white woman cut down in the prime of her life
  • she was pregnant
  • her rich and handsome husband is suspect number one
  • he was caught red handed in a scandalous affair with a she-skank
  • and [biggest factor of all] there's a good chance he can get away with it, even if guilty

    Why exactly do the media obsess over this story? People are killed every day in our country. I say convict the guy and move on! No need to make a Hollywood movie out of it like the media does.

    Remember, this is California we're talking about. The cereal bowl...the land of fruits, flakes, and nuts. Where actors become beloved politicians and football stars are "100% not guilty" after turning their ex-wives into Pez dispensers. I think this verdict will be too close to call!  Nuts
