Scott Peterson Verdict

After two jurors were thrown off the jury a verdict has been reached in the Scott Peterson trial.

It will be announced at 1 p.m. Pacific (4 p.m. Eastern). I really, really, really want to know the real reason those jurors were removed.

GUILTY 1st Degree - Laci Peterson Homicide

GUILTY 2d Degree - Child

We should all be a little ashamed of how the crowd outside the courthouse acted: mugging for the cameras and celebrating. Two persons are dead and the jury may vote to kill another. No joy should be found in this even if it is a just result.

The removal of two jurors bothers me. Two jurors gone in two days and the ~ !! BINGO !! ~ a guilty verdict. It's just too suspicious.

The appellate brief in this case is going to be thicker than The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.
