FRYING AMBER.

The 2 or so days i have had the oppurtunity to skate around a few blogs i have never seen before and also catch up with the my usual daily reads. I found a common thread amongst many, ( majority American) that is to pour water on Amber Frey's new book.
Firstly, let me tell you in all my years in the legal profession, much of it on the prosecuting side, i have never ever condoned profiteering from book and movie sales by convicted offenders. I also applaud Australian and American governments in bringing in legislation to prevent this type of thing occuring ever again.
Whilst i can claim to know much of the Australian and Uk legal system pretty well, i know probably 50% of what there is to know of the American system.....mainly the more intricate and state laws.
I believe i am an open minded person, who takes concious steps to monitor my beliefs,listen to opposing points of view,recognise when my beliefs are driven purely by desire,seek out reliable experts and most of all from a work point a view......listen to all the evidence and be guided so.
Having said all the above, will someone fill me in on what i have missed in regards to the Peterson matter? I had kept up to date before,during and after the trial had finished,personally, it was stuff i have heard all before down here......nothing new,nothing out of the ordinary. Please don't get the wrong idea, as a human being, i am disgusted just as is everyone else at what this prick has done, he deserves everything he gets and then some.Workwise though........i live it.....read it...study it.....yada yada.
So, Amber Frey, witness for the prosecution.........why do so many people hate her? Hate the fact she has written a book. Is she a bad person? I dont recall her being convicted of murder. Hang on!!! If it wasn't for Ms Frey, the prosecution team would have been up shit creek with only circumstantial evidence!! So people, why do you dislike her?? Is it because she had an affair with a married man who went on to kill his wife and un born child? How many other women have had affairs with married men? ( i don't condone it).
Is it because she is going to profit from book sales................cause if blog opinion is anything to go by..........no ones going to buy it!!! Has she done something i am not aware of??? Perhaps i have missed something???
I don't know her from a bar of soap..........not up to date on her life...past or present.......never met her.........Are all witness for the prosecution in America hated so much as her? You see, from my end, besides having an affair, i don't see what she has done wrong. Someone, without bias..............explain please.

I don't understand it anymore than you do. People here are so eager to be "haters" and I think they only see the fact that Ms. Frey had an affair with a married man. So maybe they see her as guilty by association?? I dunno. Personally, I don't think she did anything wrong, because she did NOT know he was married, let alone expecting a child, or that he was still lying and leading her on, after killing his wife and son. You're right....if it wasn't for her, the prosecution would be lost, but she at least had the courage to come forward with what she knew, also knowing she was now the unwitting "MISTRESS". I'd also love to hear from people who don't like her, so maybe we could understand why.

I suppose I have to say something because I mentioned Amber is my blog. First off we in America don't "hate" all witnesses for the state. In fact when a charge is brought against somewhen it is the People vs. Whomever. So we the people has a vested interest in criminal cases. Lots of people here have a morbid courosity about things which is probably why the Peterson case got so much attention. I personally think there is too much hate in the world and try to love my neighbor. Send me a ticket to down under and I show you some hot love baby. Sorry, wrong post. Back to your question about why so many people are down on Amber. (no pun intended) She is basiclly a trailer trash opportunist who contributes nothing to the greater good. Okay she testifed against Peterson, should we start handing out medals to people for simply telling the truth. I heard a commentator yesterday saying Amber was a hero for letting her life get turned upside down. What life? She was a ho. Then she goes and hires Gloria Alred who is the biggest publicity whore on the planet. Ever see her on televison, she is constantly smiling like an idiot at the most inappropriate times. Laci was the victim here, NOT Amber no matter how they try to spin it. Have I answered your question?

Jack ~ Lmfao...you NEVER miss an oppurtunity do ya..LOL
Now, on a serious note kinda! Ok, this is the only thing i can salvage from your post as to why people have a huge dislike toward AF."she is an opportunist who contributes nothing to the greater good". I have to agree that she is doing the book thing to make money and was probably talked into it may i add by more high profile people such as her attorney. You know, i reckon it sucks too that these people as well as billions of others who have committed far worse things than being a WFP can get rich on the misfortune of others,non the less there is no legislation out there preventing them from doing so,so to me she's done nothing wrong....if the opening is there then...... Personally,i think i would have more scruples and donate the monies to charity...feels kinda dirty to me and i would want to put it all behind me. I saw some interviews with her, she appears very quiet and not too bright. i have never seen her without the media enterage and her lawyer tagging behind her, all of who i reckon are pushing her buttons.
Agreed, those who give evidence don't need medals or need to be treated like hero's for something that is morally correct. I was not aware that she is being treated like a hero.........bad terminology, no way is she a hero.
Laci and the unborn baby are definately victims in this crime, however, i also think AF is too to a much lesser degree. A victim of her own "thickness and naivity".....she appears pretty vauge to me...not all there...lol. Still, some of the posts i have read on lots of blogs are really viscious towards her, and i am still at a loss as to why she is hated so much other than being an oppurtunist.

First off, I didn't watch the trial, so everything I say may be complete bullshit (it usually is).

Some people can't resist throwing stones. Lots of people involved in high-profile cases fall under public scrutiny, especially with cameras in the courtroom and more all-access exposure. Is that a good or a bad thing? Who knows?

Personally, I don't see a problem with her writing a book on the trial. No one has a problem with the defense lawyers and prosecutors with making money from these cases. I understand it's a bit different, but whatever.

Thanks for reading my blog, by the way, and I appreciate the link. I will surely link back to you in return. Looks like you've got some interesting stuff here.
