Thank you. I had seen it on tv, but had not gone to their site, yet.
He is one cocky SOB and I was afraid he would get away with it ala OJ and Casey Anthony.

This verdict should get thrown out by the trial judge. If not, an appeals court will trash this trial. Peterson may very well be a killer but this trial is a disgrace to our justice system.

I know very little about this guy and the case.

What I do know, is that every time I have seen him, he seems to think this whole situation is funny as can be, and he’s just laughing his ass off despite the solemnity of this situation.

When someone you have loved dies, it’s not a laughing matter.

Being charged with killing them, is not a joke. It’s nothing to laugh about, at all.

If nothing else, Peterson is one of the most despicable people I have ever seen.

Most welcome. You're absolutely right.

I heard an interview on Fox News the other morning and the defense attorney had this turkey exonerated because it was only circumstantial evidence. LOL!

IL passed a law just so they could convict this jerk on heresay evidence. Not a good law to have on the books though. It will be appealed I’m sure.

A lunatic, no doubt.

It’s easy to see how this guy is the poster boy for getting what he deserves. But, the evidence is circumstantial. That can be very tough to convict even a greasy weasel like Mr. Peterson.

Also, hearsay evidence? I am not a lawyer, but how is that a good precedent. Think of it when applied to someone you know, a friend, a neighbor, you.

My guess is that it will be appealed and rightly so. He may have done it all right, but he wouldn’t be the only one that has gotten away with murder. The scariest thing to me is the hearsay angle. What a great way to frame someone who would be a perfect fall guy.

Then there are the morons in the jury. What does unanimous mean?
I work with mostly younger people who are “college-educated.” It’s appalling that their inability to spell correctly is very evident and their attention level is along the lines of a sound bite.

This could be an example combination of the dangers of lax jurisprudence and being convicted by the members of lower portion of the bell curve.

Add his arrogant lawyers with their Terminator sunglasses to that bowl of most despicable people.

Scumbags.

Give him life imprisonment in exchange for the location of his 4th wife’s body.
