No thumbs up, are you kidding me? This is crap, absolute crap. I cringe and weep inside whenever anyone is sentenced to death. Capital punishment is an abbhoration to humanity. I don't buy the 'some people deserve to die' thing, I think that's bullshit.

What Mr. Peterson did, if indeed he did it, was terrible, and he should spend the rest of his days in prison suffering for what he did. But killing him accomplishes nothing. Lacy's family won't feel any better, their daughter and grandchild won't be coming back.

Yep, you can't kill, that's wrong. We can kill you though.

The hypocrisy of it all is astounding.

I feel a thread about one of FYM's favourite subjects is in the making.

i'm so glad they're giving him the death penalty! a third dead human being will totally make up for Laci and her unborn child! the birds will come out, the clouds will part, Laci will come back to live, and Conor will be born.

oh, the justice!



an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.

Exactly! And that is one of my favorite quotes ever. Come back to us, Ghandi.

This is a California death penalty case. Why is anyone worrying that he'll actually be put to death? He won't be executed for decades, if it even happens at all. There are 640+ others ahead of him, bogging the courts down with appeal after appeal. The death penalty in California means nothing but a private cell with a TV and more privileges than the average lifer inmate.

I am against the death penalty across the board, but like BAW says, it ain't gonna happen. Still, the fact that people want it to happen, is still pretty sick, imo.

agree with BAW as well. I am against the death penalty, but in CA, it prolly isn't even going to happen. There have been hundreds waiting for years. He's going to wait a long long time for his turn.

Yes, where he sits on death row will be far better for him than the prison he would have gone to if he had gotten life. I am surprised that they gave him death.

I'm not some gung ho supporter of the death penalty either, but I won't shed a single tear for Scott Peterson. Maybe that makes me a horrible person.

Like Laci's Mother screamed at him-you could have just gotten a divorce. Scott probably got away w/ quite a bit in his life, but at least he didn't get away w/ murder.

Not at all. Humans are complex beings. Although I am against the death penalty, I still feel many of the same emotions of those who feel his death is justified.

I have CNN on, and I just want to say that I cannot be more impressed by the three jurors that have been taking question after question from the press. They are articulate and intelligent, and they really seem to have taken their duties extremely seriously. They did not take the conviction and death penalty recommendation lightly at all.

What these people have gone through...having to see pictures of Laci & Connor's bodies, not being able to speak about the case with anyone else, being away from their normal routine for six months.

I agree Diane

I don't think I could ever recover from seeing those pictures. Laci had no arms and no head.
