This seems kind of barbaric to me

Scott Peterson's mother is obliged to beg for her son's life.

On Wednesday, Peterson's frail-looking mother, Jackie Peterson, spent a tearful 40 minutes on the stand as the defense wound up its penalty phase presentation. She urged jurors to sentence her son to life and save the family further pain and begged jurors to see the good in her son.

"He's an exceptional young man and he's my son," Jackie Peterson said. "I know he's not perfect ... but he is genuinely a loving, caring, nurturing, kind, gentle person."

Yeah, "not perfect" is putting it mildly. But the poor woman.
