So, the whole Laci Peterson ordeal is almost over--soon we'll know if the jury finds him guilty or not, so being me I wondered what you guys thought. Feel free to post your theories on what happened, if he will be found guilty, etc.

Me? I think he did it. I also think there is not enough evidence to convict him so he'll probably walk. I mean a piece of hair in a pair of plyers just doesn't prove beyond a reasonable doubt, at least to me.

I think he killed her on "accident". I'm thinking they got in a fight about the whole Amber Frey thing, he gets mad...strangles her, and then spends the next several hours covering it up. One of the things that doesn't make sense to me is why he would dump the body where he was planning on having his fishing alibi, but then again I'm not a sicko so maybe these things don't make sense to me for good reason.

So anyway...what do you think?

I think the media convicted him before he was even arrested, but that is what this society has come to. It's not innocent until proven guilty anymore, if it ever was, but you are guilty as soon as the media says you are suspicious.

Now, that's not completely true. I thought he was innocent at first when he was interviewed on good morning america and all that-when her family was still behind him...until the whole cheating thing came out. Granted, being a cheater doesn't make you a murderer but if you read the transcripts of the taped convos with Amber, some if the shit he says is just WRONG. I was really convinced when he sold her car before her body washed up. The whole hair dyed, having his brother's ID and $10,000 in cash not far from the border didn't help his case either.

It didn't help, but when you are being hounded by the media nonstop, being called a killer of your wife and unborn son, you might need to sell a car to pay for a lawyer. Yes his conversations with his mistress were OFF. And I personally think he did it, but I didn't think that until after the evidence was presented, because I din't want to jump on the bandwagon. I believe that we are innocent until proven guilty. All I was trying to say is that the media was portraying him as murderer even before this Amber Fry came up.

That's true, but OJ had a history of physical abuse toward his ex, which made it that much more probable that he was guilty. As far as him being found Innocent, I believe that had far more to do with the jurors being afraid of starting riots because johnny cochran played the infamous "race card".

dunno from what I've seen in the media here, Scott Peterson has already been shown as a monster, jackass, or combo of the two. I don't think Innocent before proven Guilty applies anymore because once the media gets hold of it, it can be blown out of proportion. These days even being ACCUSED of a crime and then found to be 100% Innocent will still cause significant problems with your life. So even if he gets off, he'll never be able to live a normal life, so eitherway he'll be seperated from the social system, though based on what he'll go through, he may wish he was in jail getting lubed up for Bubba.
