Sweet, Sweet Justice
It’s always nice when the American justice system functions as it should and some scumbag is finally taken off the streets.
What they could prove, however, was that Peterson murdered his third wife, Kathleen Savio. And last Thursday, a judge sentenced Peterson to 38 years in prison, minus the time he’s already spent in custody.
An appeal is forthcoming, no doubt, but for now it appears justice has been served. A man many describe as a “depraved” and “cold-blooded killer” will likely spend his remaining years behind bars.
American women can breathe easier now, if only for a moment.
