Legal The story of Hans Reiser, the eccentric file system programmer, is a tragic one. The author of the ReiserFS was arrested under suspicion of the murder of his wife Nina Reiser in 2006, and was declared guilty in April 2008. Some still placed doubts about the conviction, stating that he might be innocent. It now seems that all doubt has been quelled, since Alameda County District Attorney Thomas Orloff has revealed that Hans Reiser will disclose the location of Nina's body for a reduced sentence.

To all the morons who were claiming Nina was in Russia and had abandoned the family and were proclaiming the innocence of Hans, here is the proof in the pie. Enjoy eating it.

Did you read the sociological experiments he did on his son to proove his theory that desensitizing children with violent videogames is a good thing? and how he continued, even after telling nina he stopped (after she demanded it, as it was obviously screwing the kid up)

It amazes me how anyone could defend someone like reiser.

I'm not defending him, but simply having f--ked up ideas on child raising and generally being a little bit batshit insane, doesn't automatically make you guilty of murder.

Regardless of whether there was a body or not, a lot of people believed that the conviction was unsafe. In many countries other than the USA he couldn't have been convicted.
So you can't call "morons" all the people who believed in his innocence. How would you likeif I called "morons" those who believed him guilty?

Those who thought he was guilty were right...not morons.

Thats a shame, and here I thought the US justice system was screwed up. Maybe it works alright after all, considering that in other countries this guy (a convicted murderer) might be walking free right now.

Sure I can, I reserve the right to call anyone a moron ;)

As for calling me a moron? Well I'm only human and have done some pretty moronic things in my time. I wouldn't take it personally.

Seriously though, if I offended anyone then I'm sorry. Obviously I have strong feelings about this whole mess and was shocked that people were acting so blindly with the evidence that was available.
