    although he killed some one, i do not believe it is right, accept for extreme cases of serial killing, treason or terrorism. thats all i have to say.

    If our jails actually rehibilitated inmates, ide say long sentances would be a choice. When it comes to life in prison, what's the point in that? Also, if they don't get fixed in jail, and then just go back out there and commit more crimes, how does that solve anything. death or giving them the boot from the country. (maybe annarchy island? allow them just to kill eachother off)

    It's clear that our system doesn't work. (speaking for US)
    Hmm

    Wooh annarchy island! I say we take a book out of the "The Twilight Zone" and send them into isolation on the moon, perhaps with a few easy to access forms of suicide. That way we can get get information about the moon, and get rid of murders at the same time. It might be a bit inhumane, but then again so is locking someone in jail for the rest of their lives.

    Who cares about humane. He obviously didn't when he snuffed another life out. He deserves it.

    However it would be interesting to see if he is tried for a double murder or not. If he is then there is a major shakeup about to happen in the age old abortion issue. If Scott gets tried for the second murder, the murder of the fetus, then how can they not try someone else who does the same? It should be interesting to see how it plays out and what comes of it.

    This is California we're talking about...execution will never happen.

    If he did this in Texas however, he'd already be dead

    He was found guilty of 1st degree murder of Lacy and 2nd degree murder of Conner. They also agreed to the special circumstance (multiple murders). This was discussed at length when the conviction came down.

    I think it would be much better and cheaper to give him life w/o parole and just throw him in with the general population. He'd either be dead or making someone real happy.

    It's cute that everyone here is saying they know for sure he did it when they didn't see most of the evidence. But hey, go right ahead and condemn away.

    This trial's been a joke from the beginning.

    Gee whiz, you sure are a real condescending fellow, government cheese. And how.

    As far as I can see, twelve of the only people in the world that did see most of the evidence decided that old Scotty truly did murder her. So yes (without the facetiousness) feel free to condemn away if you so desire.

    The biggest joke about the entire happenstance, in my expert opinion, is that the crime is considered a murder of two persons.

    There is only one person in the entire world that knows whether or not he did it. However in the current system if the people find him guilty, we have to trust them with it. Of course I'm sure alot of people in the jury didn't vote based upon actuall evidence and rather how somebody appears or acts. Just becuase he doesn't act innocent doesn't mean that he isn't.

    When people are prepared to condemn somebody to death without knowing most of the relevant facts, I feel I'm allowed to be.

    You still can't say that
    everyone here is saying they know for sure he did it
    since only 1 person has said he did it (that has posted in this thread thus far).

    if they try him for the death of the fetus, then people who get abortions should also be tried for murder.
