At times like these I can't help but remember a line from one of Chris Rock's comedy specials, "stabbing don't cost a damn thing".
He!!, I'd do it for the price of a round trip plane ticket.

Only because the media hyped this trial into something it did not merit.

They ought to send the bill to the media. Of course, they probably think that the money the media spent in CA pays for it.

How much of that was Greta Van Susteren's take for covering the Peterson trial EVERY SINGLE NIGHT ON THE RECORD?

We could have shot him for a lot less. Same result.

(PRAY FOR POWERS EQUAL TO THE TASKS)
The cost to investigate, arrest and prosecute Scott Peterson for the murder of his pregnant wife, Laci, has reached nearly $2.5 million so far, and state taxpayers might have to pick up the tab.
And people wonder why I'm planning to flee California? The state just blew 2.5 MILLION on a case that's going straight to appeal thanks entirely to the aged judge who was brought out of retirement to preside over the trial in a manner so half-assed, I wouldn't be surprised if the conviction were overturned.

Modern day citizens need a "feed 'em to the lions" playday.
It takes their minds off what is really going on. Shell game stuff.

Got an idea to reduce future costs. Execute him TODAY.

I think the news media should be responsible for some of the cost...if they weren't involved (oh how I wish they weren't!) this trial would have been over in weeks...not months
