Drew Peterson’s Day in Court, He’s Laughing Now … We Shall See Who Laughs Last … Narcissist


All the classic signs of a narcissist

Narcissism describes the trait of excessive self-love, based on self-image or ego. In psychology and psychiatry, excessive narcissism is recognized as a severe personality dysfunction or personality disorder. The terms narcissism, narcissistic, and narcissist are often used as pejoratives, denoting vanity, conceit, egotism or simple selfishness. Applied to a social group, it is sometimes used to denote elitism or an indifference to the plight of others

He who laughs first, does not always laugh last. After being arrested the other day for the murder of his third wife Kathleen Savio, Drew Peterson  was off to court yesterday to face the murder charges before him. However, the judge delayed the arraignment until Monday, May 18, 2009 as Peterson’s attorneys were not present and out of town. Peterson is being held on a $2 million bail.

While being escorted by Sheriff’s deputies into the Will County courthouse the 55 year old, former police sergeant chewed gum and made jokes as he entered the courthouse to face murder charges in the death of Kathleen Savio.

Drew Peterson, who was arrested this week in the death of his third wife, joked with the media about his jail jumpsuit and chewed gum throughout his first court appearance Friday. Wearing an inmate uniform — a bright-red short-sleeved shirt and pants, white socks and sandals — Peterson had his hands and feet shackled as he arrived at the courtroom. Asked how he was, he responded, “three squares a day and a spiffy outfit.” He then held up the chains and said, “and I got the bling. Can’t complain.”

Dressed in a red jailhouse jump suit, Drew Peterson made such jokes as “Look at this bling. Look at this nice, spiffy outfit,” while referring to his shackles and jail issued attire is all jokes now. We shall see who is laughing in the end when the trial is over.

Comments from Peterson attorney Joel Brodsky regarding his clients comments.

Despite his flip comments, “Drew takes these charges very seriously,” defense lawyer Joel Brodsky said Friday in an interview on ABC’s Good Morning America. Brodsky said “wisecracks and comedy” are just Peterson’s way of dealing with stress.

UPDATE I: Clint Van Zandt, Wendy Murphy & Robin Sax discuss the arrest of Drew Peterson tonight
