Trail and conviction by media.
30 August 2017 | by DoNotTrustImdbSee all my reviews

I have just watched the 3rd episode, and find it odd that others gave this series a score of 1! It is well done, objective and very informative. I have been aware of this case from the day it all unfolded, so it was great to see the ins and outs. I was going to say, yeah Scott is guilty, but as much he had a motive, was a cheater and acted odd during the whole sage, I am yet to see concrete proof beyond a reasonable doubt that proofs his guilt, surely people can't be found guilty and put on death row based on no real hard evidence, and besides that there is enough doubt that comes from witnesses that contradict many angles to his guilt, sure he is a cheater and so on, but I am yet to see hard evidence he is guilty, no witness, no DNA evidence linking him, no crime scene, and and based on that he is on death row?

Now many will say he cheated, that's motive, his wife was found in the same waters where he went fishing, he must be guilty! Well again it is at best circumstantial evidence and in my eyes not enough to convict some one. The few witnesses that came forward that raises all sorts of questions as was his wives body in his boat or not when he went fishing, was his wife in the park walking the dog and so on seems to have way more weight to it to show he did not do it, as to the evidence so far shown that got him a seat on death row. If you look at those points alone the law can not convict you of that horrible crime, so far the evidence is very circumstantial driven by human emotions and a bunch of reporters hell bent on their way of justice. I also think the police did not follow up enough on certain things, the breaking in across the road, dismissed by the word of the criminals that broke in, whilst a reporter that was there 24/7 did not see their van and the day they broke in, witnesses that saw Laci walking her dog, again the police just brushed all that away way too easy.

Now my gut feeling tells me he did do it, but again show me hard evidence he did it, I am yet to see any, but then again that's after 3 episodes, maybe there is more coming to really indicate he is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, if not he has been judged and found guilty by the media, and surely that's not how we want our law system to work, and maybe it explains why he is still alive today.

I am sure some readers will disagree and say hang him high, but let's be objective after 3 episodes, look at the evidence, don't go with your gut feelings, don't feed off the media as that's not proof.

Not sure if I will add to this review after watching more of this captivating series, but for those that voted with a 1 for this series need to reconsider as I gave it a 10 just based on how well this series is put together, regardless if Scott is guilty or not.
