    All of this, huh? With no direct evidence even.
    Yet you call it a fantastic day.
    It is a travesty. An injustice.

    The system of justice we have in this country far too often lets scum like this walk free. "Beyond a reasonable doubt" seems to get misinterpreted at times and applied as "beyond ANY doubt".

    I'm glad that reason prevailed in this case.

    Reason did not prevail.

    "Reason" in the context of "beyond a reasonable doubt" most certainly did prevail. That asshole is guilty as sin.

    How so.....they convicted him of killing his second wife. Years later. Off of nothing but testimony of he said she said. What evidence did they have. Despite people thinking he is guilty.

    Trust me I don't like crooked cops just as much as any other.....but now this case has opened the way for future trials wherein people can be tried with just he said she said BS. Which now will go forward even if there are witnesses to validate ones presence at some location.

    My gut feeling is that he's guilty but my gut feeling would be a pretty insubstantial hook on which to hang 38 years of prison. I fear that this guy was convicted because he was a good story for cable news and his personality rubbed reporters the wrong way.

    Youre NOT here to bust my balls thankfully.

    HOW closely have you covered this trial?
    Not sure you know what has happened or how this went down.
    Do you know anyone on the jury?
    Why do YOU feel this is not correct?

    Don't forget the dead wife who drowned in a dry bathtub, and the next wife, who simply disappeared off the face of the earth.
