Blogging behind bars

July 18, 2008

Scott Peterson.

Scott Peterson, San Quentin's blogger extraordinaire.

Scott Peterson’s new role as a blogophile won’t be doing him much good in deflating his infamy as a death row inmate and convicted killer in one of the worst murder cases in the history of the world 10 times over.

Apparently, the San Quentin prisoner now has his own Web presence, where he still maintains innocence in the slaying of his wife, Laci Peterson, and the couple’s unborn child.

Sharon Rocha, Laci’s mother, is none too happy about her ex-son-in-law’s self-penned publicity, as she told Larry King in an interview, basing her belief that criminals should have zero privileges, most of which includes no access to any media that connects to the outside world.

Is it an undeserved piece of freedom if incarcerated convicts are allowed use of the Internet? Does it cheapen the prison system in any way? You decide.

A transcript of the Rocha interview is here: http://www.cnn.com/2008/CRIME/07/18/laci.peterson.mom/

  1. Scott Peterson’s new role as a blogophile won’t be doing him much good in deflating his infamy as a death row inmate and convicted killer in one of the worst murder cases in the history of the world 10 times over.

    Worst in the world? You’ve never heard of Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot or many others – surely not the worst in the world.
    Most who believe Scott is guilty don’t know what the evidence actually is and so misstate it. To save arguing it here, go look at
    Guilty?
    to see what the prosecution had – which was nonsense.
    Then look at
    Innocent!
    to see what the real circumstantial evidence in this case actually proved. 18 items of evidence for fetal abduction. Zero for uxoricide.
