Sensing an animosity between the judge in the district attorney in the Drew Peterson trial.
I was in the courtroom this past week and I can tell you it was palpable you can feel it.
So I started thinking.
I uncovered a bombshell.
The judge in this case James firm -- with the district attorney in 1992.
When James glanced out the DA in this case.
And replace him -- district attorney.
There's been banned blood ever cents.
Former LAPD detective -- -- Fox News contributor mark Furman as well as former prosecutor and criminal defense attorney Jeff goal.
And former prosecutor and criminal defense attorney -- -- Jackson.
All right guys you know the unfortunate thing is lost in the middle of all of this is a victim.
And I got to -- -- I was in their -- that there I just said what is going on Jeff.
You were in the courtroom could you feel it.
Oh absolutely if you heard the word.
Overruled it was a State's objection sustained it was -- defense objected and that -- on day after day after day.
And you know what he's been described judge -- -- defeated by this -- he's been described as furious.
The witness for the prosecution the sister of the victim left the stand tremble lane after -- -- her I know what this guy is doing but.
Joey when you've got to judge from showing such -- the people start digging in saying what is this about.
You know how fair is that to the victim.
Very unfair obviously you -- -- that you know that need to be propriety and any proceeding that's -- we put our faith and a confidence and but I was struck by judge.
In listening to opening statement and it even the State's attorney trying to get evidence without noticing the defense.
Are you serious if you're going to have a witness testified about a bullet in a driveway should you not and say it's a prior bad at.
-- the sense of intimidation but did you might not.
Let me explain this to the viewers okay.
A prosecution witness in response to a question about whether or not there was bad blood between Drew Peterson and this witness.
Goes into the fact that he said something like if she's a friend of -- -- my enemy meaning his ex wife left the late then and then the witness ads and the Michael welcome to all of my got your message when I found the bullet.
And if you don't think she was a prosecutor have witnesses like off the reservation -- you have judgment you have a mark on our.
You have to anticipate if you're the all that's I don't you don't know.
You read you this is a nice safe things.
You don't know what they have no let up I wouldn't.
You don't tell ugly anyway I haven't anticipated -- -- now.
Feel the State's attorney's office is not doing that good -- job there's nobody in that courtroom that really thinks they're doing a good.
How can do a good job when everything you object to let me F -- that's -- The defense talks about the fact that Kathleen the victim was arrested by the defendant.
The prosecution tries to explain what happened defend in a rice's own wife throws into the ground in front of a thousand -- kids.
Right and then -- the prosecution tries to go to the judge says action denying write it right fact that judges making his own objections before the defense makes it gets -- and then the defense gets up into the the -- like -- in fairness their reason for the arrest was there was a cat fight but -- -- -- -- -- -- the jury -- she was acquitted by the way and let's -- though the jury.
That she probably thinking pads but you know what I -- -- -- -- mark for.
-- current market.
The defense set in their opening the only reason that this case has brought forward is because of the media coverage and Peterson would not be on trial but for that.
And you -- involved -- that your ears ringing this week.
Well you mentioned your little game.
I was I was down there for probably two months working for for -- -- show and it's quite a compliment -- I think they give Greta and myself way too much credit.
-- the only thing that the mistake made.
-- by the police and the prosecution.
Is the very things that were on the autopsy.
When we got that from the family doctor Bob tonight we're looking at it in two different states and we were on the phone with each other as soon as we got -- -- and we both said -- I mean like simultaneous this is a homicide so.
We didn't do anything -- first they've really state the obvious that something that nobody else was looking out until Stacy went missing so it really wasn't anything but working.
You know what's -- but -- the frustrating thing let's be clear about this.
This whole case now becomes a homicide because they fear right is a fourth wife missing in mad -- you know what I'm suspicious as a result of that.
At the back wiping I think agreed Friday to a homicide disagree whether -- -- -- -- as they got caught.
Reviewing the -- Leo case because Stacy was missing and they got caught so they're trying to stick their finger in that.
Joey Joey -- do you think so they -- not let's assume that it what mark is saying is true.
And that there was the cover but he was a cop that the DA trying this case now with not the do you think that it okay so what -- they do just -- in the ground and not check it out.
I think what was done was appropriate you would -- the body you have a world renowned pathologist take a look is -- -- you have to you have got the -- you have got the bottom and do what I think it.
It's a lot to overcome it because it's initial autopsy which indicates is an -- -- -- -- up that the problem.
This is there really is very little case here is there's really little and the invisible 800 pound gorilla is Stacy.
Being missing and they talk about they can't talk about have to talk about you have -- yeah well you don't have to talk about every jurors said they don't know anything they don't read any newspapers they don't want to pay the jurors those that wanna be on those are too stupid -- the -- Spectacle ethic I think I think jurors though there aren't a lot of the lot of -- up.
-- right here here's the problem is not coming okay that may or may not be it's not coming in north should be.
It should be decided I'd remark based on the fact so.
