Posts from the Hayes thread that might help the discussion here.

I'm sure he realizes he almost certainly will get a death sentence and so has nothing really to lose. I think his arogance will not let him keep silent.

He said that one can forgive someone who causes an accident, hits you in the face and/or slanders you (not exact words). His point is there are many unkind things people do to one another that can be forgiven. He went on to say that he did not feel he could forgive evil nor should he have to as God doesn't require us to forgive evil. God hates evil.

I've not heard someone say this before on TV but it's the way I have always felt. It's not the peoples job to make evil doings acceptable by offering our forgiveness to those who are evil. Forgiveness is totally up to God imo.

If ever we were to go back to a system of an eye for an eye, I'd have no problem with someone taking these two behind the shed and putting a bullet in them. So I just answered my own doubts about the death penalty. When the crime is this cold hearted and there is no doubt who committed it, why do we waste our resources and concern over the perps well being? We should put our energies into developing educational systems on how to avoid people like this. If only, if only . . . that is what Dr. Petit said goes through his head all the time.

Somehow he has mustered up the strength to begin raising money for the Petit Family Foundation for Justice to honor the memory of his family.

Looks like Komisarjevsky would like to plead guilty now. I wonder if the judge approved that?

Also, does anyone know who the 3rd person in this home invasion was and if they have gone to trial or if they will face trial?

TIA,

Salem

I read in the Courant the other day that he will plead guilty if they don't go for the death penalty. There aren't 3 people - only hayes and Komisarjevsky.

I'm confused. Why would they be picking a jury in March - but the trial doesn't start until September?

I read in an article that it will take months to seat a jury. Perhaps this is why they've already started the selection process.

It could very well take months to select a jury!

Komisarjevskys attorneys appealing against Judges ruling that he can't proffer a guilty plea in exchange for no DP

I cannot understand why they just don't accept his plea and be done with it, LWOP would surely suffice,

more legal issues surrounding the release of defence witness list, and two more alternates selected, so they need just one more juror for the full set

Sure seems strange and risky to select a jury in a high profile case and then not start the trial for 3 months. Thats an awful lot of time for that jury to be contaminated (perhaps intentionally by the defense) and have to start over. Come September, they will all have to be re-questioned about their knowlege and opinions of the case.

Many times they would consult the family in a DP case. Maybe Dr. Petit wanted the DP left on the table

That is exactly what happened here. Early on both defendants offered to plead guilty in exchance for life sentences. But the the DA, at the request of the entire Petit family, refused.
