"Peterson became the 644th member of San Quentin's death row, which looks out upon San Francisco Bay, the same body of water where Peterson dumped his pregnant wife's body on or about Christmas Eve 2002."
i'm glad they put him there so he can remember what he did, but knowing what a sick person he is, he probably won't even care.
i don't believe in the death penalty, either, but my reason is that they should waste their life and suffer, not kill them. by killing them, you're taking them out of their depression.
another thing having to do with scott is AMBER FREY. don't even get me started on her. yeah, if it wasn't for her, nobody would've pointed the finger at scott, but she's also another dumb...butt.
if anyone saw her 2-part interview, you'd know what i'm talking about.
I'm glad that he was found guilty, but sitting in a prison is too good for him. I don't think that sitting there is going to make him feel any different about anything. He didn't show any remorse through the trial, he's not going to change. I am for capital punishment, I don't think we should waste money putting him up in a place to live with 3 square meals and wait for the day to frey him, do it now and get it over with. He didn't give Lacey and Connor a chance, why should we to him?

eek! i didn't know that san quentin was in the bay area?! i always thought it was in like the middle of the state like near the desserts or something. it was only like 30 miles from my hometown!
It is in the Bay Area. A while back, people wanted to tear down the prison and put new homes there that would probably cost a lot of $$ but lately, I haven't heard anything about it.
My friend's wife works at San Quentin and I am going to quiz her on Scott Peterson the next time I see her. I am glad that he got what he deserved.
ooooh, as sick as that is, you just made me laugh out loud. Don't bend over for the soap. But seriously, prisoners don't usually like men that get put to jail because they molested a child. What are they going to do with a baby killer?
I also believe that he should have to live with his guilt, but he has shown himself to be remorseless. He's a sociopath and does not feel guilt, so I think that death is the best for him cause at least he has something to be afraid of, if he even feels that emotion! I mean, if he felt guilt, he would have at least done his wife the dignity of refraining from calling Amber during a vigil for the two (?) or whatever. He only cares about himself.
Beyond that, he'll spend tons of time in prison just because of the appeals process and the administrative stuff alone. Like I heard on the news, it is more likely that Scott will die in prison from old age than from his death sentence. So, if nothing else, society has condemned him with the most severe punishment we have.

Well, to be fair, it costs a lot less to keep a person in prison for life than to sentence to death. Prison for life is like $300,000 and the cost per death penalty is over a million dollars because of the process and appeals.
Also, the appeals process is necessary for those cases when the judge and/or jury got it wrong, which has happened way too many times for something as severe as the death penalty. So IMHO, if it takes much more time or money just to prevent the taking of an innocent life, then it's fine with me.
However, it's just not the case these days since technology and investigatory techniques have become more sophisticated. They get things right a lot more of the time since there is DNA testing, etc.
