Well, he's not out of the woods yet. The judge said that there were problems with the jury when they first sought out the death penalty, which is why it was overturned.

However, the judge said that prosecutors are free to seek out the death penalty again if they choose. Me? I think that because he killed not only his wife, but an unborn child, he should be given the death penalty.

Part of the problem with the jury is that tw0 police men were on it.

This is why the death penalty should be applied a lot faster. Petersen should have been gone a long time ago.

Being against the death penalty I'm happy with this. I'd rather he have to live with what he did for the rest of his life, not get the easy way out with a needle in his arm.

So cops are less human when it comes to killing a women and her unborn child?
Police are not allowed on jurys. I wrote the defense that there were two cops on the jury and I guess they got the death part overturned.

Being against government allowing the rape, beating, and murder of people in their custody - in prisons, I am 99.999999% against prison murders. This one, I'd overlook.
