The Council has Spoken


The jury came back from their deliberations with a recommendation of death for Scott Peterson. In a way, this was inevitable. After all, they already found him guilty of double murder. However, did it really serve the purpose? I tend to think the death penalty does nothing for the good of the defendant. What it does do is make society feel better. That makes sense when it came to Timothy McVeigh and Oklahoma City. So many people died, and plenty of children brought the numbers to an almost level few are able to describe. Cmon news teams, let it go. It's been hashed out long enough. Until an appeal is filed, nothing to see, folks.
