Peterson's fate in Speakers Corner December 13, 2004 The odds are he'll rot or get killed in an altercation. And personally, I respect your statement that you've got a moral issue with it and couldn't convict. You've got guts enough to admit it, which is less than most people have. He probably will die before his "due date"...death row is such a scape goat, people have been sitting there for years. But I'm a 50/50 on the death penalty, so I can't say if that's a good thing. Thanks, I would hope others would do the same if they felt the same way.
