I found it strange when this story first came up that a woman who claimed to be forcibly held stayed with Greg and his mother. Greg noted in his letter that he and his mother shook their heads at her story. He also mentioned she had problems with her mother in her home; the mother was yelling at her. I think he was being railroaded to some extent. I have been railroaded and it is a helpless feeling.

While I am an adamant believer that Peterson deserved his day in Court, I cant hep but wonder why he denied himself his day in Court. IF the allegations against him were indeed false, the best odds of getting to the truth and exposing the lies and fabrications would have been to stand trial and have his defense expose them and let the jury determine what was or was not the truth. I find all fabricated allegations of sex crimes to be nearly as offensive as the crimes themselves as they mock the suffering of legitimate victims, start a witch hunt, and permanently damage the accused reputation and standing.

However, this man has the distinct flavor of an axis II diagnosis, and his actions speak of his guilt and his contempt for the rule of law.
