Drew Peterson: Insecure Cop or Hitlerian Murderer?

By Josh Farris

Is everyone feeling the way I am about the Drew Peterson case?: indict him already! He was on Larry King Live last night with his lawyer, and, for me, two words came to mind: "textbook sociopath." But then I started to think about it and I now I am not so sure. Less the acting like a kook on his front lawn with reporters, see the below bulleted items that should give one pause as to why this fella is not in jail or out on bail. However much the media saturation on this case annoys me, I cannot help but be fascinated by this circus and send off my wannabe editorials to those who will actually read my unprofessional scrawlings. (I promise no item below will mention or attempt to diagram or recreate in any fashion our fun boy Drew holding court on his front lawn allowing the video tapers to videotape him videotaping them and the sky.)

* Stacy Peterson, Drew Peterson's fourth wife, went missing on Sunday, October 28th, 2007. She was officially reported missing in the early hours of Monday, October 29th, 2007, after her sister, Cassandra Cales, failed to hear from her when expected. Drew Peterson claims that Stacy called him at 9 p.m. on Sunday to tell him that she had left him for another man and that she had left her car at Bolingbrook's Clow International Airport.

* Stacy Peterson's mother mysteriously disappeared eight years ago; she objected to her 15 year old's romantic involvement with a 45-year-old cop, Drew Peterson.

* The stepbrother, Tom Morphey, so feared Drew Peterson and was so distraught that he might have helped Peterson remove his wife's body from the couple's Bolingbrook, Ill., home that he tried to take his own life two days later, according to Morphey's friend, Kevin Martinek Jr.

* It was reported that between 2002 and 2004, police were called out to the Peterson house 18 times on domestic disturbance calls, including calls for returning children late after visitation, during Drew Peterson's third marriage, to Kathleen Savio. Kathleen Savio's body was subsequently found in a circular bathtub on. Her death was initially ruled an accidental drowning.

* Rev. Neil Schori, a pastor at Stacy Peterson's church, reported that she had told him that Drew had killed Kathleen Savio and had made it look like an accident and that she was fearful of her husband.

* Savio was found drowned in a bathtub in 2004, but her death was originally ruled an accident. Illinois state attorney, James Glasgow, told the press that after examining evidence in the case, he believed that the death was a "homicide staged to look like an accident."

* Drew Peterson's second wife, Vicki Connolly, has alleged a history of abuse during her 10-year marriage to him, as has her daughter who lived in the household during this time, from the age of eight to 17 years.

* Peterson, who retired from the Bolingbrook, Ill., police force before undisclosed and unrelated misconduct charges were to be filed against him, says he now spends his days playing pool with his kids and hosting tea parties for his young daughter.

The difference between a psychotic murderous Adolf Hitler and a sociopathic, murderous Drew Peterson is in scale, education, grandeur, fatherly effects, era, psychological stuff I know nothing about, other mumbo jumbo, etc. But, the one common thread is that when someone got in their respective way, angered them, betrayed them, maybe just even heatedly disagreed with them--they deserved to die. At least Drew Peterson does not seem to hide the fact that he is crazy. There should be some props for honesty.

"Whether he speaks of art, of education, of economics, he always sees blood. He does not like a certain kind of artist or educator, and that will be the reason enough to kill them." --Konrad Heiden [foreword from Mein Kampf]--

I have heard the dirty little secret amongst police psychologist lies in the disturbing impetus behind the impetus or motivation for a cop to become a cop. Said pig will have deep childhood issues around insecurity developed to a malignant level whereas the son believes the mother pays more attention to the father--this is psychologically crushing to an adolescent, undeveloped mind of a late teens, early twenties male. Our little disturbed piggy tries to rectify the situation by becoming more dominant than the father, all in a vain attempt to garner the mother's attention by being a more macho, brutal tool than good old dad. (Note: this goes on even if moms is dead.)
