No you have to be a member of the cult of his personality to not be suspicious.
What is very interesting to me, is I am not sure I could say his attorney conducted himself as a professional, given the stakes…and then he was “surprised” at the verdict. I doubt many other people were. I think Peterson was his golden goose case. Appeal-potential would have made him happy.
However, I think there is the underlying current that the lawyer did not like his client, as he had been lied to a few times. I wonder if he began to suspect his client could have been involved.
The physical difference between pre-prison and post is striking.
