Peterson was not a rich man. Blake and OJ (and the Ramseys) are

but all are equally guilty

Peterson may not be rich in the sense that OJ and Blake are but he led a very privileged life and he was represented by a high powered, rich man's attorney.

I think to the public and the jurors, Laci Peterson was a much more sympathetic victim than Nicole Simpson and Bonny Bakely. Nicole Simpson was portrayed as a fast living drug abuser who tormented OJ with other men and Bonny Bakely as a con woman/grifter who trapped Blake by getting pregnant...Laci was portrayed as a beautiful expectant mother who by all accounts led an upstanding life.

That, along with a not-so-great presentation of the cases by the prosecutors probably had a lot to do with outcomes of both.

That's the thing though. If he's guilty, where's the proof? Where's the evidence?

I did follow the case.

I am fan of the 30s/40s "Our Gang" series. Blake was in some good feature films as a child and made some good films as an adult.

He's always been a bit of a rebel. (not the typical "BOW AT MY FEET I"M A STAR" ego)


I think the jury made the right verdict. There was no evidence that connected him to the murder. Without going into the story, his wife did have quite a shady past and did have enemies.


Blake showed his rebel side after the verdict by walking out with his lawyers after the verdict smoking a cigarette into the California open air and sun.

the guy was asking around to contract someone to kill his wife, but youre right, there wasnt enough evidence. and it shouldnt be a surprise that he would try to get junkies to kill his wife, since their testimonies would be incredible.

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- District Attorney Steve Cooley says Robert Blake was "guilty as sin" and the jurors who acquitted him of murder were "incredibly stupid."

A jury last week found the former "Baretta" star not guilty in the 2001 slaying of his wife, Bonny Lee Bakley, who was shot in a car outside a restaurant where the couple had dined.

Jurors acquitted Blake of one murder count as well as one count of solicitation of murder. They deadlocked on a second solicitation count, with the vote 11-1 in favor of a not-guilty verdict.

"Quite frankly, based on my review of the evidence, he is as guilty as sin. He is a miserable human being," Cooley said Wednesday.

Blake's attorney, M. Gerald Schwartzbach, said the district attorney's attack on the jurors was inappropriate and "small-minded."

Juror Chuck Safko said: "To hear him say we aren't a smart jury is sour grapes. They didn't have a good case. Their case was built around witnesses who weren't truthful."
