So we can all get back to 24 hour coverage of the Scott Peterson trial. (Gasp!)
10 says he fries.
no way 50 says he walks on lack of evedince or hung jury.
I wouldn't want to be on that jury.
I agree with Wolvie.
He will be found guilty and should receive the death penalty, but he will probably get a prison term. Prosecution did a profound job on their summary; hopefully, that will tilt the jury's verdict to guilty as charged.
I thought the same thing, except when I heard some of the Prosecution's closing arguments, he was fantastic, he connected every dot and presented a very clear case. Plus I think jurors have a disdain for Ptereson which is not supposed to taint their thinking but human nature says it will. I think he gets convicted but does not fry, life in prison no parole. Just a hunch!!
If you're found guilty of murder, you automatically become a needless burden on society, and at that point should automatically fry. Tax money could be used for more productive things.
I'm with wolf, 50 says hung jury.
I agree he should fry, because I beleive he is guilty. But I think the jury unless 100% convinced of the largely circumstantial evidence against him will quell any guilt pangs they have by not letting him off the hook but not killing him either........I could be wrong. They may send him to the chamber?
You know, I sarted this thread to poke fun at the media and the way they obsess on one case such as this to the exlcusion of a lot of other real news. And guess what happens? It turns the board into a gaggle of Grettas.
The Democrats are right, there is no hope for this country's future.
