Reiser Laughs During Missing Wife Murder Hearing

Filed under
Reiser

Oakland computer programmer Hans Reiser repeatedly laughed in court and whispered in his lawyer's ear Wednesday as prosecutors presented circumstantial evidence aimed at proving that he murdered his wife Nina Reiser, who disappeared on Sept. 3.

Reiser's preliminary hearing, which began Monday, adjourned at the end of the day Wednesday and will resume next Wednesday, when prosecutors will present DNA evidence in the case.

After court adjourned, Reiser's attorney, William DuBois, confidently said he thinks prosecutors haven't yet presented enough evidence to convince Alameda County Superior Court Judge Julie Conger to order Reiser, 43, to stand trial.

Full Story.

Hardly a laughing matter...

This guy is really messed up in the head. I am not saying he killed his wife, but paired with the "hiding" out from police and laughing in court, it's not working to his favor. The fact that he looks deranged doesn't help things either.

re: Hardly a laughing matter...

I believed since the first article that he did it and the more that is revealed, the more I am convinced. Those geniuses think they can outsmart the police. But dang, he made some stupid errors that's gonna get him convicted.

I never actually used reiserfs. I always used ext2 then ext3.
But I am concerned about how this affects reiserfs development and ultimately kernel development.

re: development

yeah, I know. I've used reiserfs for years, but only last coupla years been using ext3 a lot on secondary installs (or whatever was default). My main system is reiserfs. I was wondering about the same thing too, and kinda wishing I had gone ext3. Some folks at Namesys said it wouldn't effect development unless he was convicted. But I don't think it's looking too good for him. He's cocky and laughing it up, but that's some pretty incriminating evidence found in his car.

I'd been looking forward to testing reiser4, but I think I'll just stick with ext3 from now on.

re: development

I don't think it will affect the development right off the bat, but Novell who was a long time supporter of Reiser switched over to ext recently. I can't think of any distros off hand that also use Resier as the default fs though, there may be others.

Going to be a not-so-fun ride I think.
