Apparently, the jury in the Scott Peterson trial have told the judge may not be able to reach a unanimous decision. The judge asked them to take some more time, and not to be afraid to consider changing their minds.
Quite honestly, Peterson is an ass. He probably had something to do with Lacy’s death. However, without any physical evidence tying him to the actual murder – did anyone really expect a unanimous verdict? The entire case is circumstantial. There will be some jurors who will have no problem convicting him on circumstantial evidence, alone. Yet, there will be hold-outs who really don’t want the prospect of putting a man in prison for life, or worse – putting him to death, based on circumstantial evidence, alone.
My one and only question surrounding this case is – – where is the physical evidence? In this day and age – it is near impossible to commit a murder without some sort of physical evidence that will tie you to it.
The hair in the boat? Big deal. I have long blonde hair – – Chris frequently has a strand or two of my hairs on his shirt/sweater/jacket after we’ve shared a hug.
Where is the blood? The weapon? The cleansers used to clean up the mess?
This whole case is confusing. And long.
Did I mention confusing and long?
In my non-professional, non-expert, inexperienced, arm-chair juror opinon – I fully expect a hung jury.
