True Crime Garage // The Staircase /// Part 1 /// 243

True Crime Garage // The Staircase /// Part 1 /// 243 Kathleen Peterson was smart, vibrant, professionally successful, and by all accounts a superb daughter, mother, sister and friend. On December 9th, 2001 Kathleen died mysteriously in her home. Was it an accident or murder? In 2004 HBO documented her death and the trial and conviction of Kathleen’s husband, Michael Peterson. In 2018 Netflix documented the release of Michael Peterson. This has been by far one of our most requested cases. HBO and Netflix covered “The Staircase” and this week True Crime Garage is on the case!

The 911 call sounds a little silly. sounds like he's acting.

You cannot make up your mind based on watching The Staircase netflix series. It was biased in a major way toward Peterson. You have to watch other documentaries to get a fuller picture.

He is the male version of Casey Anthony

Disagree. Casey Anthony was pretty obviously guilty for a myriad of reasons, and also she was acquitted. Peterson went to prison. Michael also has basically no motive. By all accounts he loved his wife and she knew about his bisexuality and every other secret he had. Sure, he inflated his self-worth in his books, but he's certainly not the first and won't be the last to do that. Doesn't make him a liar by default.

This case more than anything else really showed me the utter failings of the jury system. The point of a prosecution is to prove a position. All this prosecution team did was throw out things that couldn't be *dis*proven. This is *not* how prosecution or the law in general works and quite frankly running your prosecution in such a way should really just not be allowed. They did this shit time and time again, suggesting things like Kathleen finding out about his bisexuality and being disgusted/wanting to end the marriage. There's no evidence for this being the case, and Michael insists his wife knew and would tease him about it, but the prosecution's position technically couldn't be disproven. Same with Elizabeth Ratcliffe's (SP?) death. I believe the prosecutor asked the ME on that case something very similar to Is there any evidence that Ms. Ratcliffe's dead was not a homicide? Dude. There's no evidence that it wasn't a suicide either. That's completely fucking meaningless. The problem is that pulling 12 random schmucks out of a population and trusting that they're going to know how to properly think and dissect a case like this is just bonkers. People believe shit because it can't be disproven all the time. The prosecution knew this, and instead of caring about the truth, they played on this to get their precious conviction. Secondly, I know they screen jurors, but I fucking guarantee you that his bisexuality was at least a little bit off-putting to them (and people are far more willing to believe malicious intent of those they are prejudiced against), since bisexual men are still not really accepted in society even now. If anything, his bisexuality and sex with men outside the marriage is *less* of a motive for murder than if those had been women. Some couples are cool with same-sex relations outside of the relationship to satisfy that craving. He even said in an email to the male escort that he had a dynamite wife that he loved very much. If you're going to be honest with anyone about your marital issues, it's probably with the person you're trying to have an affair with. But, icky gay stuff + untrained, random jury = misconclusions. The way to maybe not fix but at least greatly improve this broken system is to have a fixed amount of professional jurors (say X per thousand people in any given county) who are trained in law, know how to think about and pick apart these cases, and whose first and only priority is the truth. Otherwise we're going to keep having these ludicrous acquittals and convictions that we've been seeing since this system began, but especially since the dawn of the internet age.

+sue black Correct. And the state did not provide evidence. It provided speculation at best and used leading questions on witnesses to make the jury assume things that couldn't be proven. I think we're in agreement here - the defense did nothing wrong. This was one of the most egregious instances of prosecutorial reaching that I've ever seen.
sue black 29 days ago
You do realize, the defense doesn't have to prove if their client is innocent?.and in no way is the main goal of the prosecution needing to provide a position. Maybe I'm misunderstanding your definition of position? That isn't how our justice system works. It the responsability of the state to provide adequate evidence so you can find the defendant guilty based on that evidence. If the state messes that up, presents the evidence inadequately, etc, then the defendant should be found so called not guilty. It isn't about guilt or innocence it about the state having enough evidence and how they present that evidence to the jury.

That 911 call sounds so rehearsed and FAKE! I want to give the guy the benefit of the doubt but after watching that docu he comes across like such a bizarre, (and entitled) guy. It’s hard not to side eye the hell outta him.
Joarthus 29 days ago
How does he come across entitled? He literally says, What about people who are in this situation who don't have money? I'm lucky that I can pay for this. What about people who can't? Are they just screwed? He says a lot of liberal/selfless things in the documentary. As for bizarre, yeah, he is, but being weird doesn't make someone guilty or even more deserving of suspicion. I'm weird. I hope I never get arrested for a crime I didn't commit now :P.

The Captain does come off like someone who’s never looked up any of these cases and usually comes off uneducated in psychology. I do enjoy their true crime series though and they are definitely one of the best at it.
