Video of Hans Reiser's Kids Moves Jurors at Linux Programmer's Murder Trial

Filed under
Reiser

A 21-minute videotape showing Hans Reiser's missing wife playing and cuddling with her children at their son's birthday party captivated jurors at the Linux programmer's murder trial here Wednesday.

The glowing facial expressions of the 12 jurors and four alternates as they watched a sixth-year birthday party for one of the Reiser's children was one of the lighter yet more powerful moments in the murder trial of Hans Reiser, who is accused of killing his wife to end a bitter divorce and acrimonious custody battle.

Jurors chuckled in unison as they watched the Reiser boy, now 8 years old, swipe a candle from his birthday cake to taste the frosting. Moments before, Nina Reiser was seen on the tape, rubbing her son's cheeks and giving him light smooches. One juror's head bobbed as the tape showed Nina Reiser jumping on a trampoline with their second child, a young daughter.

At one point, Pat Benatar's "Love is a Battlefield" was playing on the tape's background.

re: Reiser

The Wired article shows what a circus the Court system is in America.

Hans Reiser is on trial for supposedly murdering his wife. Showing tapes that show the wife was supposedly a good mother has NOTHING to do with whether Hans murdered her or not (unless of course the tape shows Hans sneaking in with a hatchet and offing her on screen).
