They call our criminal justice system, the best in the world. That may be true, but it’s far from perfect.
I’ve taken exception to the Scott Peterson double murder verdict for the most fundamental reasons. There was no proof of an actual crime!
Imagine being on trial for your life and some dysfunctional nutjob is selected to sit on the jury and decide your fate. That’s exactly what happened in the Scott Peterson case.
The People Magazine hitting the streets today has the story of Peterson juror, 36 year-old Richelle Nice who has apparently become a “pen pal” of the man she condemned to death. Nice and Peterson have exchanged some two-dozen letters during the year following Peterson’s trip to death row.
People Magazine is reporting that in December, Nice suffered a mental breakdown and was hospitalized in a psychiatric ward. Nice began this bizarre correspondence with Peterson at the suggestion of her therapist.
Potential jurors are always required to disclose arrests or convictions but nobody asks them about their mental health history which could ultimately be much more important. Since Nice was in therapy during the trial it’s obvious that this should raise the specter of her lack of competency when given the task of determining reasonable doubt for a man on trial for his life.
Paul, is this the juror who looks like Ronald McDonald? Why is she writing him and then publishing the letters?
Are they sending jury summonses to the laughing academy these days?
What a world we live in.
Thank god other people are sane and realize Scott was lynched, that was not a fair trail in the least. They also ignored the other woman who was found decapitated, with hands and feet cut off who was also pregnant and found in the SAME BODY OF WATER way before Laci.
I feel he is innocent.
I have never in my life watched such a travesty of justice take place as I have from the beginning and still am watching and hearing about the "Scott Peterson case.
I could write a book about how many things Scott was abused over. I would say the media was number one. Sharon Rocha and family didn't help sitting everyday right next to the jury.
Detective Brocchini sat there on his fat rump and blatently lied.
The Judge was agains't Scott from the beginning.
So what if scott Peterson cheated on his wife. Why do so many people hate him when they should be tending to their own family matters. If Scott cheated that was his business.
Amber Frey is a tramp - she still lurks online with her short greasy hair naked for all to see and a mouth full of metal. If you don't believe me check it out. That homely face will jump right out and scare you!
Everyone seemed to profit with the almighty dollar and all the players have moved up in rank one way or another.
But you know something? I am praying every single day that our appeals Court will give Scott the justice that he deserves. For goodness sakes there is NO evidence.
The icing on the "strawberry shortcake" says it all.
What has happened to our justice system?
I only hope that Scott has the last laugh.
He, however is bigger and better than that.
I'd give my name but to be honest I am not at all afraid of Scott Peterson, I am actually afraid of what some ignorant citizen or illegal immigrant - (we seem to have a large population of illegals today- but who really cares?) might do to me or my family.
I was ashamed to be an American the day the lynch mob was waiting outside of the San Mateo courthouse to cheer and degrade poor Jackie Peterson as she left the courthouse. She has more class and strenth in her little finger than all those nasty, cruel people out there that day.
As for Richelle Nice, well, she is a very mentally sick person and had no business being on that jury.
Why didn't Richelle let anyone know that while she sat on Scotts jury she was also being represented by the San Mateo district Attorney's office re: your three different petitions for child support. Pre trial, during the trial, and post trial.
How about that one people??? Or is that all okay too because it's Scott peterson?
THERE IS NO JUSTICE IN THE U.S.A AT ALL WHAT IT WAS WAS A PACK OF WOLVES AFTER SCOTT. HOW CAN A KNOWN MENTAL PATIENT SERVE ON ANY JURY? SCOTT HAS BEEN IN SAN QUENTIN FOR YRS. THIS IS JUST WRONG! YOU DO NOT PUT A PUZZLE AND SENTANCE A MAN TO DEATH ROW AT ALL! I WILL NEBER EVER STOP UNTIL HE IS A FREE MAN. OTHER THAN RICHELLE NICE CHECK OUT AMBER FREY! JUDGE DELLUCIA STATED IN COUT WHEN ONLY SCOTT AND THE ATTYS; WERE THEIR,"WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO IF HE WALKS? THIS IS TOTALLY UNCONSTITIONAL. AND THE JUDGE KEPT OUT KET EVEDINCE. PLEASE HELP AND SEND ANY AMOUNT OF MONRY FOR SCOTTS DEFENSE UNDER HIS WEBSITE. SINCERELY GEORGE GEORGIE@9680 LAKEVIEW DR. N.P.R. FL. 34654 AND GIVE ME YOUR IN PUT AND GO UNDER RICHELLE NICE WEBSITE.
JUST CONTAT ME: I AM NOT AFRAID OF ANYONE! HOW CAN A MENTAL PATIENT FOR OVER 17 YEARS SERVE ON SCOTT'S JURY WITH THE ACADEMY AWARD MOTHER SCREACHING AT SCOTT? LOOK AT THE,"NUT CASR AFTER THE TRIAL, I WAS THE ONE WHO EXPOSED RICHELL NICE, I KNOW SHE WAS HIH! FROM GET GO, JUST LOOK AND LISTEN TO HER SHE CAN BARELY STAND UP AND THE OTHER JURORS WALKED AWAY FROM HER.
Damn i know her she live a few blocks away from me
Not only is she mentally unstable, but she's a liar too, that lied about being the victim of a prior crime on her jury questionnaire; a crime of which happened while she was pregnant none the less. So much for a justice system that *guarantees* an impartial/unbiased jury of your peers. IMO, if the appellate court does not grant a new trail based on this very significant incident, then they will make a mockery of the constitution.
On the one hand I don't think being in therapy should be forbidden to someone on the jury. Lots of people have counseling for this or that and it doesn't necessarily have anything to do with the issue they have to consider....but...
Lying about relevant stuff, and this is really relevant, shouldn't be legal (and isn't).
I can't help feeling like she wrote him to explore whether she did the right thing.
