  1. Good! Scott Peterson is innocent. It's a terrible, horrible thing that happened to Lacie and their child. Should he have to suffer twice for it? Look at the evidence. Scott could not have murdered them, the timeline makes no sense. The mail-man has a record of when he dropped off mail and Lacie and the dog were not home. They were on a walk while Scott was at work and heading to go fishing. He's innocent, look at the evidence!

  2. Maybe let the courts handle it this time instead of trying the case in the media. That's why it's being reexamined. Media doesn't care if he did it or not. Saying he did makes media mogals richer.

  3. They had way more evidence on Chris Watts than on Scott I don't think he did it…. even Lacey's sister doesn't think he did it. If u actually look at the evidence without bias & assuming he's guilty you'd have REASONABLE DOUBT. Oh & just because he had an affair doesn't mean he's a murderer I couldn't believe they allowed the mistress to testify her whole testimony was irrelevant.

    If my opinion angers you I hope you never serve as a juror because you'd be the worst kind. We need ones who listen & asks questions & knows that this is one the ways to serve our country…. so take it seriously.

  4. They can send other folks to jail. But can't do that time! I do believe if you do the crime you should do the time, But if you are well off, or know someone, then the rules are bent. ask the affluenza teen! deal em up straight!

  5. As guilty as I believe Scott Peterson is, if the juror failed to disclose information which could affect the trial… than he should be retried. Safety measures in the legal system exist for a reason, if we allow this to be swept under the rug… than it's just a matter of time before every corner is cut for a conviction.

  6. The red-dyed crackhead committed perjury on her questionnaire. She wanted her 15 minutes and got it. Now time to get her 15 minutes again by getting prosecuted!!!! The surviving victims may have to re-live this all over again because of her!!!!!

  7. Yes the Leftist Court system is a joke. They support the vicious criminal and ignore the life time tragedy of the victims. They feel cheated in life, this is why they free the criminal. VOTE REPUBLICAN!

  8. I want to use this medium to testify of how i got back my wife
    after 5 months of separation, I and my wife divorced because
    she felt i was cheating on her with a female friend of mine, i
    tried all i could to explain to her but she paid deaf ears, i was
    emotionally devastated because i really loved her until i saw a
    post on the internet about Dr. Ojogun, who helps people gain
    back their lost lover, at first i doubted if it was real because i
    never believed in such things but decided to give it a try, and
    Dr.Ojogun proved to me that he has the power to restore
    relationship, he restored my relationship within 48hours and
    my wife was calling and begging to make up with me again, if
    you need help to repair your relationship or marriage problems
