Why are people so anxious to see that lying, cheating, two-timing,
double-dealing, Scott Peterson rot in hell as opposed to rotting
in prison while he awaits the death penalty?
ALL men cheat on their women!! Period!! Some cheat for real,
the true adulterers. Some only cheat in their minds, while
others wish they had the gonads to seriously pursue an impure
thought about someone other than their main squeeze.
This is PRECISELY why I didnt follow the Scott Peterson
murder trial. No REAL manly man would kill his wife just because
he wanted to have carnal knowledge of a foxy blond like Amber
Frye. Men were born to be dogs and follow the scent of a skirt,
ANY skirt that yields the possibility of conquest or more.
There is ABSOLUTELY NO NEED to kill anyone for a piece of
action. Scott Peterson, besides being a sick twerp, didnt
have the manly stones to amble with Amber and then tell Laci
to either deal with it, or take a walk.
Look, cheating isnt pretty, but a sense of honesty or
bravado in cheating is better than what Scott Peterson got
himself into. He now faces years of either being the subject
of physical and sexual attacks in prison that will probably
make him BEG for the death penalty during all he upcoming
years of automatic appeals of his sentence, or, hell
live a miserable life in prison before dying, paying for his
crime a day at a time.
I tell you all this because I am shocked and awed by the visceral
reaction by so many people around me about what should happen
to Peterson. Some want him dead NOW and are willing to volunteer
as the executioner. Others believe the longer he sits on death
row and is subject to a sort of slow death by humiliation
and plunder, the better.
Probably one of the most interesting aspects of the anger
Peterson has generated is that for many California folks,
they cant begin to understand why there is an automatic
appeal by the system of someones death penalty sentence.
Why should we have to pay for that piece of (excrement)
to sit in jail, to feed him, cloth him, when he should have
a rope tied around him and some rocks, and do to him what
he did to Laci and Conner, I have heard someone say.
Drop HIM in the bay and let the sharks feed on him.
An appeal? Appeal for what? He did it, they found him
guilty, kill him!! another shouts. And thats just
in my household. Wow!
Woman are particularly strong in their condemnation of Scottie
Boy. Whats the old saying about there being nothing
worse than a woman scorned? Scott seems to have scorned them
all, my wife included. This normally strong, but quiet love
of my life is beside herself. She understands men are dogs,
and Im probably the best example she knows. Shes
learned Im probably more bark than bite when my eyes
wonder away from her toward some other majestic magnet of
manly desire, but Scott has screwed it up BAD for all of us.
I hear women asking their men why the hell did he kill
her (Laci) as if we would know. My wife asked me if
Petersons murder of his wife and baby bothered me, and
I found it uncomfortable to give her a straight answer. Of
course it bothered me, but the stupid guy part
of me started babbling about what an idiot he was because
hey, Amber Frye is hot and who wouldnt want to
hit on her. But kill your wife and kid over it? I pontificated
while questioning my sanity for getting this far down a dumb
non-answer to her question. Hell, I blurted out
as I looked for a reasonable way out of my own mess, if
youre going to cheat, you just tell your wife that you
did it and she can either deal with it or walk out the door!!
Lucky for me, I was driving down the freeway as I was stepping
all over my tongue. Otherwise, my wife might have hoisted
my backside out the house door. I somehow managed to further
explain the unexplainable. And she somehow found enough inner
peace or restraint to allow me to dig a deeper hole.
Look, there are two kinds of people who do not understand
or will not accept the premise I have laid down: that cheating
is a part of a mans very being. We are hunters for food,
power, women, love, sex, control, money, whatever. Its
in our genes. If its out there for the getting, we want
to get some. And we can never have enough.
We will get a strong disagreement from two kinds of people
who do not understand: 1) women, and 2) self-righteous and
pious religious zealots who will claim their attempt at divine
purity precludes them from straying from their soul-mate,
their morals, or their religious beliefs. LIARS!! No one is
perfect. We all stray at some point, even if only in our minds.
Remember when then-President Jimmy Carter said he lusted in
his heart after some babe when he was out fishing.
Then later, of course, we found out another President lusted
in his office, all over Monica Lewinskys blue dress.
The spot that will live in infamy, we could say.
Anyway, Bill Clinton is the perfect example of the worst in
men, sexually and pathologically speaking. He exemplifies
the sexual hunter. The late night comics kid about him, his
enemies remain disgusted by him, but he DOES represent the
worst part of the male personality that most people dislike
those of us who understand it, and those women who love it
because their character flaws see it as okay. We generally
call this female flaw the slut syndrome.
There should probably be a similar label for equally loose
men, but I havent heard it.
Back to Scott Peterson, theres clearly one thing about
what he did that was wrong: MURDER! The rest of his actions,
as a low-life cheating cad
understand it. I can tell you that way too many friends of
mine, and on TOO MANY occasions, we have sent more time talking
about Amber Frye and the probable explorations of her by Scott,
than we did in discussing the horrors of what Scot did to
his wife and baby.
We didnt mean to dishonor the memory of the dead or
make it any less horrible than it actually was. Its
just that men in general, intelligent and otherwise, end up
wanting to talk about that cute, thin blond thats still
available out there, rather than discuss grisly details of
We dont hesitate to suggest Scott should suffer terribly
at the hands of some Big Bubba in prison, because we know
we would NEVER allow ourselves to do something as horrific
as what Scott did.
Would a guy be as willing as some women we have heard from
to volunteer to stick the deadly needle into Scotts
arm 25 years from now when his death sentence appeals run
out? One friend of mine was quick to respond that he WOULD
love to do that. Not because he has some sick sense of wanting
to kill Scott. No, he said, he would volunteer to take Scott
out ONLY because it might give him a chance to meet Amber
Frye and hit on her to try and get her phone number.
So now you see why I chose not to follow the Peterson case?
It wasnt about the ugliness of the murders. It was about
why the idiot killed two people just because he wasnt
man enough to stand up and say he cheated and wanted out of
If youre going to be an ass in life, at least do it
like a man. Stand up and take responsibility for destroying
your marriage and that of your immediate and extended family.
Live with the consequences of your actions and be strong enough
to justify your actions and your stupidity in ruining multiple
lives. But murder?
Scott, I hope you rot in jail from the diseases of your own
doing. And smile when Big Bubba calls out to you, Come
here Scotty Sugar.
