I just knew it was her husband, and that's a shame that I jump to that conclusion every time. (Nicole Simpson, Lacy Peterson)
Yikes.....! This guy is already guilty by measure of this discussion. They haven't even discussed the "evidence" in this case. With Lacy Perterson, from what I have seen and heard about it (and I may be missing some of this information), the guy did do some pretty weird things while she was "missing". But that don't make him a murderer. Our court system is suppose to decide that. Based on what I have for information, they only have circumstantial evidence against him anyway. Although I know that is enough in this day and age to convict.
The media convicted the husband in the Perterson case long before he went to trial. Everyone in the country knew what happened and the media painted a grim picture of this guy, and broadcasted every single "oddball" thing he has done in his life to the public. What kind of response would you think that would bring from people like you and I?.....Yep he did it. Based on what we have heard, and where did you hear it, yep the media.
Same thing is going to happen to this guy too. I am not saying that he is or is not a murderer, but I am saying he is Not Guilty until a jury of his peers (however tainted they may be, by news stories about him) says he is guilty. This is suppose to be one of the "truths" that are held dearly to all Americans. Unfortunately in this day and age, it is no longer a truth, but a myth.
I try to think what it would be like if this had happened to me. I have done some strange things in my life that I will not mention
. But they could easily come back to haunt me in a situation like this, and make me look very bad to the public, who will happen to be my peers and sit in judgement of me for some crime. I don't like the thought.
Tankgirl, I used your quote only to validate what the discussion is about. I mean no harm or disrespect to you. But this seems to be the "general" consensus about this case already. You may be right. I hope you are not. I would hate to see something that God has joined together be torn apart by a mere man.
Just my thoughts on this and the Peterson case. OJ ?......Well technicalities has a place in everything.
OK, my wife just knocked me off my soapbox........Peace.
