I was thinking the same thing!

I didn't follow this case, except what I gleaned from People Magazine while getting my hair cut, so I didn't realize the evidence was so circumstantial. I thought there would be more that would come out in testimony.

That being said, who else COULD have done it? Logically? The guy is having an affair and his wife disappears, and he continues contacting his mistress. For a murderer to, coincidentally, stumble on his suburban home and murder his wife as this is going on is a little hard for me to swallow.

Life in prison is fitting.

when the verdict was read, he didn't act like an innocent man.

I guess he had already used up all of his acting ability

Beautifully said. I agree.

I'm so glad! What a cold hard evil bastard, murdering his pregnant wife on Christmas Eve with presents under the treem for the baby. He was so smug and sickening I was afraid he'd get off like OJ. Guess he wasn't rich enough. This is a good thing, it shows guys they can't get away with it.

He gives me the creeps.

May he have a long, healthy life in a supermax prison, so he can think about what he did.

Thinking about it won't bother him, people like that have no conscience in the first place. He's probably only sorry he got caught but not sorry for what he did. He's probably banging his head he didn't dump the body farther out. What an asshole.

IMO, facing a life-time of sodomy, life on death row and no perks worthy of a Fertilizer salesman, I guarantee that he will harm himself within one year of his sentencing...I've met and dealt with assholes like SP; a hero in his own mind, but he can't exist in the Big House....he's fucked.

Portrait of the convicted!

May the OZ Boyz rip Snotty another A**hole! He deserves more than one and where he's going with his convicted crimes, he'll need it and use it.

Mrs. Springsteen gave us a lovely tribute to Laci with that pretty foto and the encouraging proverb about justice.

Sharky summed it up very well about the good things happening in the past 10 daze. Bush Arraphat Snott

I told my co-workers Friday afternoon when they said they hope he gets the death penalty that I didn't... and, predictably, they questioned me. My answer? ........
Death is too easy for this arrogant prick. He deserves a long life in prison, where, considering how "pretty" he is, he's bound to be verrrrrry popular. And even a "date" or two every night of the week for the rest of his life is still too good for that bastard.

I agree, death would make it too easy for this scumbag. Let him live with what he's done in prison.

Looking at those pictures of the very pregnant Laci just breaks my heart.

It does make you wonder, though...had this been a poor, or unattractive, or nonwhite, or gay, pregnant woman...would it have gotten the same media attention?

I doubt it.

I guess Geragos is asking for a new jury for the penalty phase

I thought this was an interesting editorial

Laci's legacy (Lia Macko, executive producer, MSNBC)

We learned Friday that Scott Peterson won't be on the golf course with OJ searching for his murdered wife Laci's real killer. Victims' rights advocates breathed a sigh of relief, crowds cheered, and throngs of well wishers left notes and flowers at Laci's home. Despite cocky claims of innocence by the Peterson defense team, the June dismissal of a juror who seemed more likely to grab a beer with Peterson post-verdict than convict him, several juror dismissals in the past week, and the lack of a weapon or even an eyewitness, a panel of twelve moved beyond reasonable doubt to convict the defendant of the premeditated murder of his wife and the second degree murder of his unborn son.

Though it would be undignified to label any outcome in a murder trial a victory, the Peterson verdict does signal something important — and perhaps necessary —about evolving community tolerance for acts of domestic homicide and violence. Statistics on this front are staggering and the demographics would shock many. Murder is the number one cause of death of pregnant women in the United States. A third of female murder victims in recent years were killed by their spouses or others close to them, according to the U.S. Department of Justice, and according to the FBI, just more than 800 spouses killed their partners in 2002. Nearly one-third of American women report being physically or sexually abused by a husband or boyfriend at some point in their lives, according to a 1998 Commonwealth Fund survey.

The Peterson case reminds us that perpetrators of domestic homicide and violence often defy stereotypes— this group includes physicians, businessmen, athletes, police chiefs, and religious leaders. The many televised and published portraits of Laci and Scott Peterson as a young, attractive and loving couple remind us that real life villains often look benign, and that yes, these acts of violence could indeed happen to your next door neighbor, friend, or daughter. The disturbing facts and images of the case— the dark, evil Christmas Eve disappearance of a beaming and vital expectant mother— remind us that the unthinkable is possible. But the Peterson verdict helps transmit a message of deterrence to would be abusers that diminishes the aura of permissiveness haunting this realm of law since the conclusion of OJ's trial, the so-called trial of the century. Instead of reinforcing that a husband can get away with the murder —literally —in the state of California, the Peterson jury said the opposite, concluding that even in the absence of direct evidence, an unlikely defendant can be found guilty of murder.
