Apparently the jury believed that there wasn't any reasonable doubt.

The jury convicted him because they hated him, not because they didn't have a reasonable doubt.

This is nearly, literally, a high tech lynching.

I hope you never have to sit in front of a jury that hates you.

I agree. I don't know if he did it or not. It seems likely that he did. But this was a lynching.

How do you know that? Were you on the jury? How do you know that there was reasonable doubt? Were you in the courtroom every day?

You state that the jury convicted him because they hated him - and not because of the evidence...

Being that there is still a gag order...

How do you know what the jury actually believed?
Ouija Board?

My understanding is that Scott Peterson did many things that would suggest that even before her body was found he knew she was dead.

Although it is possible to imagine circimstances in some cases where someone might discover his wife's death and not report it immediately (e.g. if he'd received a phone call from the murderer, etc.) I can't imagine any such scenario which is consistent with what I understand of Scott Peterson's actions.

If you think Scott Peterson is innocent, then I must ask:

  1. Do you believe that Scott Peterson didn't know that his wife was dead, but for some reason acted as though she was? Can you explain why he might have done that?
  2. If Scott Peterson did know his wife was dead, how might he come to know that without either having direct involvement in the killing, or without knowingly covering up for the killer?
I don't know exactly what's fact and what's rumor, but if my understanding of Peterson's actions is at all accurate, I can come up with no reasonable explanation for them other than either (1) he killed his wife, or (2) he is covering up for someone who did. And if (2) is the case, it would be Scott Peterson's responsibility to show it.

I hate all murderers. And I would think that the average law-abiding citizen feels the same. Do you think OJ was innocent?
