Police Officer to Nina Reiser: 'Get Yourself a Gun'
An Oakland police officer testified at Hans Reiser's murder trial Thursday that he advised Nina Reiser, the wife of the popular Linux programmer, to "get yourself a gun" to protect herself from the man she was divorcing.
"I told her one day, you need to get yourself a gun," the officer testified
The 12 jurors and four alternates latched onto what was by far the most riveting testimony as the computer guru's trial finishes its third week here in Alameda County Superior Court.
"That man used to loom over her, to glare at her," the officer testified.
