Sharon Rocha said in her statement that she hopes Scott Peterson is executed "as soon as possible". Guess that means in 15-20 years. Pity.

couldn't happen to a nicer guy. The reality though, is it most likely wll not happen, at least not for a few decades.

Sharon Rocha to Scott: "You deserve to be executed as soon as possible." MSNBC is mentioning that the defense wants to make a statement.....could Scott speak today?

First 60 minutes has to interview him in his prison cell.
Then he has to write a book. Then the TV movie special has to be shown. Then the defense has to produce new evidence in the case. Then the judge has to be accused of racism against Irish people. Then he'll give money to the Democrat party. Then some Democrat president will pardon him. Then some vigilante will shoot him, claim insanity, and be interviewed in his prison cell by 60 minutes. And so it goes in America, the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Defense was asked if they wanted to make a statement and they declined. Proceeding is coming to an end.

Hopefully he will get the Anally Injected Death Sentence, before the state does their injection.

I understand the inference...;-)

He was accused of 2 murders not just murdering a pregnant lady.

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

Say WHAT!!! Please tell me that the state hasn't gotten to your brain to that degree! Please? Please?

Well, unfortunately the tax payers of California are paying that "Two for the price of one" ticket. A pretty steep bargain to provide for a convicted murderer for the next 20+yrs.

Well, now let's think about this. How could the court records refer to him as anything but "baby Peterson" or, more technically, "fetus Peterson"? There were no official documents stating a name for him, just anecdotal evidence.

Personally, I would prefer if the media would refer to the person in question in the same way the court records do.

I heard he was going to PB. I thought it was strange since the inmates at PB are the worst of the worst. Scotty is bad, but these guys would rip him to pieces.

Scott's mother gave away two children born out of wedlock before marrying Scott's father.

This is a woman who thinks it's okay to simply abandon life's little inconveniences.

At San Quentin, where death row is, the inmates have single cells. And it is a horrible place. Don't think for one minute that this is going to be a cushy wait for the needle.

What would you want her to do abort them? I think this trashing of scotts mother is terrible. He is still her son. I think his family especially her is in heavy denial.

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

That's the way I look at it. He was all primed for living the high life...golf - sex and big time rock and roll.

I can live with the fact that he can sit in his state 'play pen' now and rot his miserable life away.

One pregnancy out of wedlock and giving the baby up for adoption is exemplary.

I would assume she figured out that pregnancy isn't caught like a cold and would be taking charge of her life after that sad time.

Two kids.....right...I forgot. Yes, this woman is NOT a nice person. Scott's half sister (who got in touch with the family ) said Jackie's main concern was helping Scott form an alibi while Laci was missing. She also said some "not so nice" things about Laci and told a babysitter "I wish Scott could meet somebody like you." THIS WAS WHILE LACI WAS STILL MISSING. Cold woman.

Oh c'mon now...you're quickly losing credibility! Everyone involved know his name was Connor. Why exactly does the state have to bless that name? Remember, the state is NOT sovereign...God is sovereign!

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.

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.

Jackie & Lee Peterson BOTH interruped Brent Rocha during his testimony....Lee said "What a liar!" when Brent was talking about Scott and how he was unhappy etc...Jackie said "That's not true!" They left the courtroom 'FURIOUS'....Scott Peterson was shackled at the waist during the court proceedings today.

One needn't be born to have a name:
Be bloody, bold, and resolute; laugh to scorn
The power of man, for none of woman born
Shall harm Macbeth. (Macbeth, Act 4, Scene 1)

. . .

Despair thy charm;
And let the angel whom thou still hast served
Tell thee, Macduff was from his mother's womb
Untimely ripp'd. (Macbeth, Act 5, Scene 8)

Connor was found outside Lacy's womb, albeit with the cord attached, presumably, like Macduff, untimely ripp'd.

Bonner, or Bonyers? Guy who raped 14 boys and killed most of them. Execution in 1994 or 95. I was there at San Quentin amongst the protestors, handing out tracts.

The judge did NOT allow Scott Petersons parents to testify....this according to the AP. Scott Peterson was in a suit and had the same "swagger" according to MSNBC.

The last person executed in California was Donald Beardslee on January 19 of this year, a little less than 21 years after being sentenced to death. He was the first person to be executed in California in almost three full years.
