One day the fetus is known as Connor and the next it is known as fetus. I love the media.

He'll live for 20 years before any switch is thrown or needle injected.

Had he been sentenced to life in prison, he would've lasted a week.

Lets start the freeper "office pool". My bet is for July 2020 for the execution date.

California where the state needs to build a new death row because the old one is too crowded with live inmates.

Well, you can't officially have a name unless you have a birth certificate. And you can't have a birth certificate if you haven't been born. So, I guess technically, "fetus" is the proper term in this case.

California's death row is significantly larger than Texas's. And everyone knows why.

Damn, they should have let him run free in prison, he'd be dead in a week, and BTW doesn't the "fetus" have a name???? Damn MSM, his name IS CONNOR, MSM, his name IS CONNOR, not fetus.

Who is Scott Peterson? Is he one of Michael Jackson's playmates or something?

Lee Peterson was kicked out of the courtroom when he called Brent Rocha (Laci's brother) a liar during his testimony today. Dennis Rocha told Scott: "Your going to burn in hell for this.". The brother said that he wanted to kill Scott, but wants to watch him "twist in the wind". Sharon Rocha is now addressing the court. Per MSNBC.

He'll probably die of AIDS from his prison lover before they throw the switch.

Actually, he hasn't yet been sentenced. The process was motions for a new trial (Denied as I understand it), victim impact statements (Ongoing as I type) and then the sentencing. I think the Judge indicated he would impose the sentence but it hasn't been set yet.

I do believe the last person that was executed involved an innocent individual and a gang of thugs. I presume you know who was executed.

Technically, I suppose you have a point.

But just a reminder (and an unnecessary one, I'm sure) - Scott was convicted of murdering him, name or not.

I'd be curious how the statute used in that case reads.

Thanks

Laci's brother Brent said that "Laci will be coming to take you away." to Scott Peterson. Brent Rocha told Scott: "It's sad what you put your mother through" and "Scott you are truly a loser." Sharon Rocha called Scott a baby killer, evil murderer, coward....and a product of the environment he grew up in.

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. (AP) - Scott Peterson was sentenced to death Wednesday for murdering his pregnant wife, Laci, more than two years ago.

Peterson, shackled at the waist and wearing a dark suit, was escorted into court under heavy security Wednesday. Judge Alfred A. Delucchi denied a defense request for a new trial and upheld the jury's recommendation that he be sentenced to death.

Spare me, please. If this were your son would you be calling him fetus?

Be thankful they even mentioned fetus. The updated story makes no mention of it.

I look at it this way: he's getting both the death penalty and life imprisonment. Two for the price of one!

How about never. They will never execute him. I think the likely senario is that he will be murdered while in prison.

On a side note. I was rather put off by Ms. Roche regarding her complaints about how the courthouse is full of strangers that didnt know lacy and she thought they should not be there and laci's friends and family should basically hold priority over the available seats.

"California's death row is significantly larger than Texas's. And everyone knows why."

Exactly!

And if they deported all the illegals which accounts for a third of the prison population and executed the death row crowd we could eliminate the overpopulation and cut the costs of prisons dramatically!

but heck, that's just too logical! LMAO

Lee Peterson was kicked out or asked to leave the courtroom when he called Brent Rocha (Laci's brother) a liar while he was making his "victim impact statement". He was interrupting his testimony.

The Supreme Court of (US) will outlaw the death penalty (to please the UN) within 10-12 years.

Just like the early 1970's, this gambit will commute all existing cases.

SP will live to be 60.

Ooooh, strong stuff. can't say I blame them though. I wonder what she meant by "a product of the environment he grew up in". I thought he had a pretty good upbringing? Maybe I heard wrong.

Nope. But I'm not the media either. The reference was to the media calling him a "fetus" instead of a name.

I do believe that Scotts mother has had a rough life....her father was murdered, she had been married at least once before she married Lee Peterson. I don't think she is a very nice person...quite manipulative and that's where Scott learned it.
