Scott and Laci Peterson....

Usually someone is innocent until proven guilty. But in this case I just cant help to label him guilty. The film footage of him soon after his wife went missing convinced me. He just looked guilty.
What do you all think...guilty or not?

I think many of us have issues at times with our wives. I would even go as far as to say some have strayed from the relationship at times and were unfaithfull. But to kill her with your unborn child still developing has got to be the worst. I think there is a special place in hell for this guy.

You know, I gave him the benefit of the doubt for so long. I tried. But I mean, c'mon....look at how much he's changed his appearance for one thing.

I'll say this though, he's gotta be a REAL IDIOT to use the place he dumped their bodies as an alibi.

I had my doubts at first, but now that I've heard more about the case and with the discovery of the bodies and where they were dumped, I'm convinced that he's guilty. Divorce would have been a better solution better than homicide.

I usually wait for the evidence to come out, but this guy hasn't done anything to give me a reason to doubt that he is guilty.

I hope they don't move the trial to my county and call me for jury duty. That would be a waste of everyone's time.

why the need to jump to a conclusion?

Murder happens every minutes, its the fact that she was pregnant, white and from a Quote good family, that this became such a story and has used up so many resources. Now if it were someone of another racial background, I am positive it would been just a blog.

I cannot draw a conclusion untill I hear all the evidence. Not just what the media reports.

But if I had too, I would say it all points to him.

I can see killing your girlfriend. However, killing any child, especially yours, takes a cool, calculated mind. As mentioned before, he is innocent until proven otherwise, but, the evidence seems to point right at the man. By trade, he is a salesman, he lies for a living. Bastard killed a child, his own, and the woman that loved him enough to bear his offspring.

I suppose I have not heard all the facts, but, he looks like the most likely suspect.

Killed his own child! I cannot emphasise that enough.

WELL,

I've been foreman on two juries, so I know what it is to find a person guilty of a serious crime (assault/battery and rape). You have to look at all the evidence and then try to pick it apart for reasonable doubt.

That being said, this looks bad, very bad. It appears Scotty boy didn't weight the body down properly when he tossed her into the San Fran Bay.

I'm betting he did it, but I'll wait for a jury to say he did before pointing fingers. Still, if he did kill her, then the fishing story was a pretty lame one to go with.

My 2 cents:
Good thing Fox News hasn't yet replaced our judicial system. They seem to be convinced that 'jury trials' and 'evidence' and 'due process' are just a waste of time. Let's let people who read teleprompters for a living decide the fates of us all. I don't know the WHOLE story, so I will hold off on judging him.

On the other hand, as the father of a three year-old, IF he is guilty, no punishment is too cruel or unusual for a child killer.

As of now, there is not one single shred of physical evidence against Scott Peterson. How can everyone be so judgemental as to his guilt? Actually, the defense has proven the prosecution to be flat-out wrong on several accusations.

I don't really know enough about this case, but at a glance this guy looks guitly.

I will however not make my mind up about this guy, until a verdict is obtained from the court. Its not fair to him if he is innocent, if the whole word treats him like he's guilty anyway.

Have any of you heard of Azaria Chamberlain?

Her parents were convicted of killing her at Ayers Rock, and years later pardoned. I was not alone at the time in saying the parents were guilty, on nothing but media speculation. Their defence was that "I dingo took the baby"...

The bottom line - even the most bizarre circumstances have some possibility of being true. Don't assume that what you see in the media in any way matches the reality!!

i'd be shocked if he wasn't actually guilty, but I won't be too surprised when it comes in a hung jury. the media saturation has left everyone in the region with an opinion, jury selection alone will take forever.

On a side note, my dad knows laci's parents. whether it's Scott or not, I hope whoever killed her gets his/her just desserts. And whether he killed her or not, Scott deserves a severe beating for his actions.

I'm with you, I don't think they have proved anything other than the body was dumped in the same bay Scott went fishing. Hardly enough to convict a man of such a horrendous crime.

I think the guy's guilty, everything he's done is pretty stupid and points to him being guilty, what's with the changing of appereance and the selling the shouse thing, guy's a damn schnook, an idiot all the way. On a side note, remember that movie "Demolition Man" during the scene where they are on the computer going through a list of criminals who have been recently thawed out, the computer says loud and clear "Peterson, Scott". Great movie!

What I've seen of the case so far it's no doubt that the man is a scum-bag. However, there really isn't much against him other than that. Sure he looks bad but in reality that shouldn't be enough to get him the guilty verdict. I think he's going to get the not guilty verdict or get a hung jury. We should know by the end of next month since the prosecution has to wrap it's case up by the end of this month and the defense said that it was only going to take about 2 weeks. Looking at the defense team and how confident they look, it seems like they have something "up their sleeve" and are pretty sure that Scott will get the verdict he wants. "IF" he did it then yes he should get what he deserves but if not then I hope the legal system and the jury does what it's supposed and look at the real facts not just the fact that he was cheating on his wife.

I agree and I think that the system is treating him as an innocent until proven guilty.

It seems what people are doing here is responding to the preponderance of evidence against this man. He's clearly a pathological liar. The taped telephone conversations with his mistress, Amber Frey, have revealed that much about his character.

Amber Frey


The rest of his alibi from the begining of this mess was very weak. I do a lot of fishing. A lot of fishing as in every chance I get. I have never been fishing in a solo trip on Christmas Eve. That smells.

The rest of the timeline doesn't add up to much of a good story for him.
Innocent? Maybe the pile of evidence is circumstantial. Maybe. Personally I don't think so. The noose is tighening and a guilty verdict seems unavoidable.

Here's a link to the CourtTv coverage of the case: Laci Peterson - Case Coverage

In the same breath though Amber Frey was shown to be a liar as well. She knew Scott was married and still continued the extra-marital affair. There really isn't (at this point) IMO enough evidence to convict the man. There is too much reasonable doubt .

Yes! There is never an instance where this is not true. You are innocent until proven guilty for a reason. One must be objective.

in all honesty though it seems rather apparent in our society that you are really guilty until proven innocent. People label you as guilty, and if you are arrested you are a bad guy even before an investigation has really started. It's sad to see. This case has some unusual twists in it..but again.. he must be considered innocent until the jury says guilty.

I don't mean to diminish the tragedy of the situation - a woman and her kid are dead - but why is this case being covered so intensively, and why are we debating it here? It's one criminal case that really doesn't have any bearing on any of our lives. I'll admit to a morbid fascination with the case when it first broke, but after I realized how hard the media were flogging the damn thing I got disgusted - the only reason this is still being discussed is because it's sensationalistic, bizarre, and the media won't let it go and are painting it as some kind of "trial of the century." Bah. Regardless of the outcome of the trial, we're not likely to ever know the truth, and even if we did, WOULD IT MATTER? Hardly.

Go read a good book.

Hey, I'm no lawyer but, why would he want to sell Laci's vehicle and their house so soon? Why was he heading to Mexico w/ $10,000? Shaved off his goatee and dying his hair (saying that it was chlorine from a pool) blonde hmm, well looks to me like he was trying to leave the states and change his appearance and why would that be when he wasn't a suspect at the time? While Laci and Connor are still missing he's out swimming, boating and playing golf,...not a care in the world about where his wife and son are. Why did he tell Amber (recorded phone call) that he knows who killed Laci & Connor? 'Innocent until proven guilty' I know that's what the law says but, that's bullshit too. If someone is innocent why are held in jail before their trial? If they are innocent the law is afraid they will skip town? That's contradictory. The law should state 'guilty until proven innocent'. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but, w/ the facts shown he is no doubt guilty and a disgusting excuse for a man!

The whole reason this case took off is two fold (1) she was 8 months pregnant at the time, (2) it happened on christmas eve! If either of these two were missing it would have been back page news, but its not. Personally from what I have read and heard about the case I could find him guilty right now with out the body, all from just his actions. (1) carrying on an affair, and telling her his wife was dead. (2) his wife ends up dead, (3) he carries on like it was no big thing, even trying to continue on with the affair. (4) he tries to sell HER car, and the house, (5) he changes his apearance, and disappears with a lot of money, (6) continues to go out to the area she was found, before she was found there! (7) his alibi is very fishy (pun intended - C'mon who goes fishing for his first time out on christmas eve alone on a cold and windy morning!) (8) and on a boat that he bought that his wife and the woman he had an affair with knew nothing about! (9) when confronted by the woman he was having an affair with, couldn't answer some of the most basic question from her. He was very evasive, saying he knew things but couldn't tell her the whole story. Now if you are innocent wouldn't you want the woman you're sleeping with to know that you're innocent? (10) When they wanted to bring in search dogs, Scott specifically asked if they were going to bring in cadaver dogs?? This was at the time when they were still looking for her in an active search for a missing person, not after they found her remains. (11) read through the recorded phone transcripts and watch him squirm and lie!!!

While just my opinion, I tried to wait to hear most of the information before I made up my mind, I would find him guilty at this point. If someone else did do it, he at least had first hand knowledge of it, and thats enough for me.
