In order to buy and swallow this owl did it shit, you would have to buy and swallow another piece of shit: The owl also got into Michael Peterson's shoe, stumped on Kathleen, left a bloody shoeprint on her sweatpants.

Whether you think Michael Peterson is guilty or not, David is a straight G! OG Triple OG. We be need more stand up lawyers like him in America, because the justice system is so unfair. Everyone knows the prosecutors have access, resources, and the ability to generally do whatever they see fit. All the while the defendant is limited and constantly restricted. IMO I don’t know if Michael Peterson is guilty or not, but he’s a definitely an extremely weird person. He was very strange. And I think the series the staircase actually made him seem even more weird to me. The forensic files episode of it was too cut and dry. Freda Black and Duane Devers are both scumbags and that’s the only reason I think their is so much doubt surrounding this. At least for myself. Even before the OWL theory came out I was thinking both of those prosecutors were grimey. Freda looking like Cruella Deville, with her strong southern accent would have made me shit my pants if I was a defendant. I guess that’s a compliment to her, cuz she was scary as shit! Lol

The owl theory is ridiculous, especially since the temperature was about 55 degrees/12 degrees and Michael stated he was outside for nearly an hour whilst being dressed in only shorts and a t-shirt. Also, Kathleen was on the PC upstairs with a recorded email sent around midnight.

Even imbeciles can not swallow that shit. Even Rudulph couldn't swallow that shit, because he would have to explain that bloody evidence to a jury.

Anyone who laughs at the Owl theory only do so because it's an Owl, an animal most people see as cute and even wise, rather than a more 'sinister' bird of prey like an Eagle. Owl attacks whilst rare can cause very heavy bleeding, can knock men to the ground and leave the 'victim' in shock, as was the case to John Mackay in 2013 who thought he had been hit by a brick:

Did you even know that there was bloody shoeprint found on Kathleen's sweatpants? So, when did this killer owl get into Michael Peteson's shoe and stumped on Kathleen?

Discovering that there was a corrupt prosecution investigator on the case was the lucky break that allowed his guilty client to avoid a life sentence. Peterson would have been convicted on retrial, IMO. That is my conclusion after having watched The Staircase on Netflix. PS. I think the corrupt cop (investigator) should be in federal prison for his crimes. Too many innocent people are sitting in prison because of people like him. I find it kind of creepy that Michael Petersen had a romantic relationship with an editor on The Staircase documentary (Sophie Brunet). The Owl Theory insultingly ridiculous. I can't believe Rudolf would even consider it.

Apparent even scumbags like David Rudolph didnt have the stomach to swallow that shit. :-)

Btw, I grew up with a barred owl living in a tree a few feet from our front door for many years. My parents and us four rambunctious children, coming in and out constantly and playing loudly in the vicinity daily and no attacks ever. Hmmmm.🤔 Not saying it's not possible BUT highly unlikely.
Xiaomin L Feador 12 hours ago
In this case, not highly unlikely , the owl didn't do it. In order to buy and swallow this owl did it shit, one would have to buy and swallow another piece of shit: The owl also got into Michael Peterson's shoe, stumped on Kathleen, left a bloody shoeprint on her sweatpants. Nobody with half a brain would even consider that theory.

Good interview and he's definitely a great attorney BUT Michael Peterson is 100% guilty. He is a narcissistic, liar whose story is ridiculous when compared to the evidence. I didn't believe him during the series and the information that was left out was even more damming. RIP Kathleen Peterson.

+Zachary Arnold So explain this shit: WHEN did the killer owl get into Michael Peterson's shoe and stumped on Kathleen, left a bloody shoe print on her sweatpants?

a great atorney , translation: This scumbag is very good at telling and selling lies.
Zachary Arnold 21 days ago
He's not guilty. You were lucky to not be attacked by any of them just as she was unlucky TO be attacked by one. The biggest would in her head is the perfect outline of an owl foot.

He never should have been charged with 1st degree murder in that situation. The death of the other woman in Germany should not have been allowed and the fact that he was bi sexual should not have been allowed. The state's case revolved around them assuming that Peterson's wife did not know he was a bi sexual and some fight about it had ensued yet there was not one shred of evidence to suggest it. Just because the man may like a cock up his ass on occasion doesn't make him a murderer. Then we find out the major evidence against him was fabricated by a corrupt SBI agent. I don't know if he did it, I sort of like the owl theory, it fits much better. The problem is, guilty or not, he was not proven guilty with concrete allowable evidence. He was railroaded with the murder 1 conviction and railroaded with the voluntary manslaughter conviction. He served what would be a normal second degree murder sentence (8 years) lost everything, bankrupted and now labeled for the rest of his life. He paid, guilty or not he paid.

Let me put it this way, in order to buy and swallow this load of owl did it shit, you would have to buy and swallow another shit: The owl also got into Michael Peterson's shoe, stumped on Kathleen, left a bloody shoeprint on her sweatpants.

the lawyers for the defense do not want to know if the client did the deed; so they really don't want the whole truth.
Xiaomin L Feador 12 hours ago
Criminal defense lawyers can not afford the truth. The truth wouldn't just send their clients to prison, it would also ruin their business.

For those laughing at the owl theory it is the only theory that really fits EVERYTHING. She is outside drinking wine either Mike, has taken a Valium. She leaves to go inside. Just before the door the owl swoops and both talons make deep cuts in her scalp, but she quickly wrestles it off (There are photos online with people needing hundreds of stitches for this). This explains the pine needles and feather remnants found on her hands, as well as blood drops on walkway and door and other kniks and scratches. She likely doesn’t realize the extent of her injury immediately but realizes she is starting to bleed so she runs inside and the blood really starts to pour as she heads up the stairs. Perhaps she gets dizzy, blood runs into her eyes or in her haste she trips and falls backward down the stairs and hits her head. Now disoriented or briefly looses consciousness the blood really starts to flow. She coughs, sputters, tries to get up falls again or looses consciousness and continues to bleed without someone to provide pressure. Mike comes in after some time. Blood is drying and she is almost dead. Of course he runs to her, tries to arouse her, steps all over everything as you would, gets towels etc. I’m telling you, it’s what happened. A fall alone doesn’t make any sense with those gashes. Neither does a human attack with no bruising or brain trauma. They are lacerations fromsharp gallons and the pattern fits.

You get an Owl land and get caught in your hair you are in for one hell of a battle. We have had issues with owls in our area, they can be nasty when they go into a defensive mode. Those wounds on her head look like cuts and tearing, not blunt force trauma. If those wounds were caused by blunt force trauma you would also have skull fractures or crushing of the skull. They were deep lacerations.

Liked the interview quite a lot. Both the interviewer and the interviewee were great, in my opinion. I feel David is a terrific lawyer/professional! You could almost feel his passion for what he does. First time I see Michael and his interviews and gonna watch some more. Really liked his style and the way he conducted the interview. Asking good questions and letting his guest tell it all.

Rudolf is right about the constant excuses for politicians behaving badly. The kind of people excusing every sex or racism scandal surrounding Donald Trump are often the same conservative types who would position themselves as moral crusaders against anything harmful to Christian, family values. Nothing means anything to people anymore, they just want to be on the winning side.
