Good.

Wonder if he'll die of old age before he's executed?

I prefer "unborn child."

It is more pleasant to hear. But I usually prefer hearing the technical term so that people understand the difference.

I don't believe for a moment that Scott will survive in San Quentin more than a year or two." Problem with that is that prisoners sentenced to death are kept separate from the rest of the prison community and have single cells. They do not even get to have recreation with other death row prisoners. He will live a long life in prison.

They mean life waiting for death.

Death row, unless a fellow inmate decides to take the law in his own hand.

Oklahoma just completed a real death sentence last night....

Still took too long, IMO...Something like 15 years to complete it.

But it DID get done.

All of your logic is immaterial as we are dealing with feminist word games here. Per feminists, a baby is a baby only if it's mother wants it. If the mother does not want the baby, it is a lump of cells and called a fetus.

Actually, I try to go with the scientific definition rather than the "feminist propaganda" one. As my dictionary puts it: "fetus (noun) - In humans, the unborn young from the end of the eighth week after conception to the moment of birth, as distinguished from the earlier embryo."

What if somebody gets Scott in the shower? Guard looks the other way and WHAM...that's it. Didn't Jeffrey Dahmer get killed in prison even though he was in protective custody? Even the most hardened criminals don't like baby killers.

Not in a court of law.

OK..now you're REALLY beginning to disturb me! I do hope that you're not a lawyer because I would be deathly afraid to have you represent me.

God is sovereign over all things, everywhere, at all times.

Yes, you do have some whacked out judges that think they rule supreme over God, but they are greatly mistaken.

ALL of American jurisprudence was, and is, based on God's law. Have you ever read Blackwell's commentaries? It might serve you well...

Almost doesn't seem fair that Peterson gets death while this Schiavo creep is going to get off scot free if he kills his wife.

LOL, I guess all those children in the Bible and throughout history didn't "officially" have a name.

LOL Well, I suppose that when that requirement was first proposed it wasn't retroactive. However, "Connor" was conceived way after birth certificates were being issued in the State of California.

Well, you can't officially have a name unless you have a birth certificate

Officially according to whom?

There have been people ion the past who were told to give their child a particular name. Whether or not your an atheist doesn't change that. Scott Petersen committed double murder. Life, according to science, begins with DNA. DNA begins at conception.

Dude, I'm not arguing that Peterson wasn't guilty of double murder. I'm saying that there is nothing wrong with the media referring to the victim as "fetus" instead of "Connor".

By the way, I'm a practicing Southern Baptist.

Oh, gotcha. Well, I can agree with that if they are using the term to describe the technical location of the child, which was in the womb. But it's okay to name the child Connor once he died. Butthe press would be crossing their own liberal-line to give an unborn child a name. But I see your point. Sorry to have flamed ya :)

Those who come into the world by Caesarean are given birth certificates. "Born" does not just refer to the typical vaginal birth.

Why the "Nightstalker" Richard Ramirez isn't on that list I don't understand.

According to that Department of Corrections list, the average wait is about 20 years, so Scott has plenty of time, sadly.

A name is not what makes one a human. My grandfather was two years old before he ever had a name (yes, that was the mother of all baby name disputes!). Doesn't mean he wasn't human.

Yes, I agree. I think it is altogether fitting and proper for the family to name him and give him a proper burial. I'm just not sure the courts or media should.

"The court is satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant, Scott Lee Peterson, is guilty of first-degree murder'' and second degree, Delucchi said.

I have a problem with the fact that there was even a possibility that the judge could overturn the jury's verdict. To do so is unconstitutional in my opinion.

That I do not have an answer for. But, he wasn't. Thus, no name in official court documents.

Although I agree that it takes forever for someone actually to be executed in CA, I take comfort in the sentence because Scott Peterson's lawyers would have been able to keep him away from the general prison population if he'd been sentenced to life.

Don't forget the part where the vigilante gets convicted of premeditated murder, and executed in a timely fashion.

Yep, that's the way it works. For anyone interested, check out the following:

California's Death Row, and

Letters from San Quentin's Death Row. Perhaps we should watch this site to see if Scott goes looking for a pen-pal...

Because in 1973 there was an activist Supreme Court that decided to mock God. That in no way takes away from God's supremacy and sovereignty.

Notice how I said that American jurisprudence is BASED on God's law. I never said that bad law was not created by those who will be answering to God for their actions.

The thing that scares me about your posts is that you seem to put man's law above God's law. That is a very dangerous precedent if you want my humble opinion.

Reminds me of my favorite Groucho Marx story!

As legend has it, Groucho was small-talking with a female contestant on "You Bet Your Life" when the following exchange took place:

Groucho: So, you got any kids?

Female Contestant: Yes, Groucho, I have eleven children.

Groucho: Eleven?! Did you say eleven kids?

Female Contestant: Well, I love my husband.

Groucho: Lady, I love my cigar but I take it out of my mouth once in a while.
