Peterson has broken his silence. He talked to Matt Lauer via telephone and it will air tomorrow. Here’s a couple of questions.
This is in reference to his “I guess I should have returned those library books” statement upon his arrest and his crazy comments to reporters on his way into his hearing.
This kind of sense of humor of yours is the way you react to stress, but do you understand how it can tend to make you a very unsympathetic character in the eyes of the public?
Well, you know, there’s no book written on the way I’m supposed to act. Would it be better if I hid my head down and tried to hide my face, and hunched over and have tears in my eyes? No, that’s just not me.
You did not really participate in any search for her – why?
Well, they were searching in weeds and bushes and I don’t believe she’s in weeds and bushes. I believe she’s out there somewhere living her life.
One can only hope. It’s more likely that he knows she will never be found.
