I only cross-posted my article a few hours ago, so you'll forgive me if I didn't join the discussion instantly.
In general, I cross-post my articles published on the web to Free Republic because I have lots of friends who read here.
Moving to several of the comments in specific:
First, it was Hollywood Investigator who published the link to my book. I simply copied the HTML which included that link.
Second, this is my first article for that publisher. I didn't write the article about n-acetyl-carnosine eyedrops. My mother and I were interviewed in one of their articles, describing my mother's use of them.
Third, there are repeated references in the comments to Laci Peterson having been weighted down by anchors. No anchor attached to her body was ever offered as evidence, nor were any cement anchors recovered from the bay where her body was found ever entered into evidence. Laci Peterson's body having been weighted down by anchors of the type Scott Peterson made was simply more prosecution speculation without any evidentiary foundation whatsoever.
Fourth, while I have more than one residence, the state in which I vote, register my car, own land with a house, have my driver's license, and operate my business isn't California but Nevada.
The point of my article isn't my personal opinion as to whether Scott Peterson murdered his wife and unnborn son. My point is that when inflamed prejudice replaces reason in criminal trials, the system is broken and criminal justice appropriate to a free and civilized society is replaced with the law of talon.
Those of you willing to abandon that for the momentary rush of seeing a nasty man burned at the stake are not celebrating American principles. You're celebrating Soviet, Nazi, and Taliban-style "justice."
Total agreement. Good for you!
The jury looked at all the exibits, listened to all the evidence presented, heard from all those who testified and saw them face to face, judged it all as a whole and found Scott guilty..
I only read the transcripts and listened to the tapes, viewed his interviews..I agree with the jury.GUILTY
So she stayed under water for weeks how exactly?
"My point is that when inflamed prejudice replaces reason in criminal trials, the system is broken and criminal justice appropriate to a free and civilized society is replaced with the law of talon."
Amen to that.
Moreover, I'd like to add the cult of personality that was created regarding Laci's good looks, smile and the fact that she was pregnant at the time of her death.
She was young, yes, but she was not beautiful. I, too, saw her smile and didn't think was genuine. In fact, reading her background, I came to the conclusion that she was not a saint herself, and her smile was a phony and despicable one. But this is no reason for killing her.
Maybe Scott did kill her, but the "beyond a reasonable doubt" standard was never met.
