I beleive Scott Peterson was a bad person. He cheated on his wife who was bearing his son and that to me is beyond all reproach. However, he was convicted of murdering her, without a body, without a murder weapon, without a time of death, without a place of death. He was basically convicted of killing his wife for being a scumbag and cheating on her. All circumstancial evidence was used to convict him. Nothing solid. With that said, whose to say that ANYONE can be convicted of anything without any solid evidence as long as the media hypes the fact that in their minds, your guilty. The media cast their judgement over this trial way before the first hearing was ever made. Theyve been beating into the minds of viewers that he was a scumbag and he killed his wife from day one. This in my mind is a completely dangerous precedent to set.
