Scott Peterson is guilty. And people are cheering?
Something is wrong here. This should be a solemn occasion. The facts have been weighed, and God Help Us, the people have chosen as best they could to reconstruct the history of the sad event, death of two innocent folks.
We should be saying soberly, "Sorry, Scott, but as near as we can tell, you have done wrong. We regret that we have to punish you, but in society's interest, we must."
But cheering? Not me. The cheering the verdict and the jeering of Scott's family makes me ill.
Justice is served but wallowing in revenge is inapropriate.
