Scott Peterson's death sentence in
murder of pregnant wife overturned
by California Supreme Court

The California Supreme Court on Monday overturned the death penalty sentence for Scott Peterson, convicted in the Christmas Eve murder of his pregnant wife, Laci, and their unborn son, Conner. The court's decision came more than 15 years after Laci, a Modesto, Calif., school teacher, was killed. Investigators said Peterson dumped his wife's body from his fishing boat into the San Francisco Bay in 2002. The bodies of Laci and Conner surfaced months later. While the murder conviction against Peterson stayed in place, the court ordered a new penalty phase trial.

Comments:

If there ever was someone more deserving than the death penalty, it's Scott Peterson. It is undisputed that he killed his wife, he dumped her body, and when the net was closing in on him he made preparations to flee. And the court vacated the death sentence because of procedural errors? There is nothing that was improperly done that would mitigate his crime. He should have been sent to Hell 15 years ago, the evil bastard. The most horrid thing? The baby's body washing up on the beach, umbiical cord attached to its lifeless body.

This is the same court that let Charles Manson off death row. In CA a prisoner on death row can die of old age before sentence is carried out.

What OP said. Considering the long, slow road to the death chamber, the idea of his being in prison for a long long time may have to do. He killed two persons. Should have consecutive life sentences at the least. One way or another, this beast should die in prison.

If you want to use the power of the State to end someone's life you better be damned sure everything was done exactly right. He's a s***bag and a murderer but I don't want my State killing anyone in my name and in my behalf if they can't properly follow laws and procedures. He isn't going free. They are redoing the penalty phase to see if he gets death or life in prison. This time it's some sub human trash (site wouldn't let me use the word I wanted to use). Next time they screw up it might be you or someone you know. You can let someone falsely convicted go free. You can't undo the death penalty. Do it right or not at all.

Following procedures is one thing but it's almost like shooting fish in a barrel. They can always find one little thing you missed, i.e., dotting an i here or crossing a t there. It obviously took years to find something so it had to be obscure. As long as he stays on death row til the day he dies, I'll settle for that.

We do not have swift justice anymore. We have a lot of plain and simply politically corrupt courts too. I never get all that excited or relieved when a creep like Scott receives a well-deserved death penalty. They seem to rarely get carried out. This does not surprise me at all.

Does Kalifornia even carry out death sentences anymore anyway? Maybe they'll give him life and let him loose in the general population where someone, hopefully, will know he killed his little boy as well as his wife.

Things surely have changed. When I was only a few months old a student who attended a local college murdered a young woman who worked at the college. He was tried, convicted, and sentenced to death the middle of March 1951. He was put to death on April 23, 1951. The murderer offered no motive as to why he did it other that when he saw Ms. Baker he had an "urge" to kill her. He said something just came over him at the time. I have no problem with the death penalty as long as the state has absolute proof. I do think that if the death penalty is imposed it should take place within a certain period of time. No way should killers sit on death row for decades.

Following the release of recently declassified documents, Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., says he believes the FBI showed a double standard in its investigations into reports of foreign interference at the campaigns of Hillary Clinton and now-President Trump in the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election. Calling it “the ultimate double standard,” Graham said that the documents reveal that leaders at the FBI sought to give the Clinton campaign a defensive briefing before it could pursue a FISA warrant related to a threat posed to the campaign by a foreign government.

The Seattle City Council voted Monday to move forward with a controversial proposal that would begin the process of defunding the police department. The 7-1 vote comes despite objections from the city's police chief, mayor and the Seattle Police Officers' Guild. The plan would ultimately slash funding to the department but not the 50% some had sought. Seattle currently has around 1,400 police officers, and the current plan would see about 100 cut. It was also cut the police department's $400 million budget by about $3 million, according to KOMO.

The NFL is preparing to end the use of military honor guards to present the American flag ahead of the national anthem, according to reports. A league source claims that the policy benching military, federal, and police guards is part of its COVID-19 response, according to Front Office Sports. “They won’t be on the field,” a source told the site. “That could change as the season progresses. But that’s the plan at the beginning.” It appears that there will be no flags on the field and the flag will only appear on electronic scoreboards during the playing of the national anthem, at least for the beginning of the season.

A new study published to the journal Scientific Reports suggests that moderate alcohol consumption is associated with slightly decreased brain volume. Scientists have long known that heavy alcohol use shrinks the brain, but it's not clear whether or not moderate drinking has a similar effect. Researchers from the University of Helsinki in Finland explored the possible link within a sample of 353 Finnish men and women aged 39 to 45. On average, the subject group reported moderate alcohol consumption, indicated by an AUDIT-C score of 3.92. Such a score is roughly equivalent to drinking two to four times a month, having between three and four drinks a session,
