Prosecution to finish cross-examination of schizophrenia expert Dr. Raquel Gur on day 46 of the Aurora movie theater shooting trial – People vs. James Eagan Holmes. During the course of the trial, prosecutors will argue that Holmes, the admitted gunman, was sane when he went into the midnight premiere of the Dark Knight Rises in an Aurora, Colorado, movie theater and opened fire on the audience, killing 12 and wounding 70. His defense attorneys will try to spare Holmes’ life by arguing that he was insane. 7NEWS and TheDenverChannel.com will have gavel to gavel coverage of the trial starting at 8:15 a.m. (MST) everyday and ending around 5:30 p.m. (MST) Watch new live video on our YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/7NewsDenver/live Additional resources:LIVE VIDEO & BLOG: http://bit.ly/theatertrialTIMELINE of the case: http://bit.ly/theatertimelineJURY PROFILE: http://bit.ly/theaterjury CONTINUING COVERAGE: http://bit.ly/theatercoverage
Way to go Judge!! No relevance to Dr. Gur saying "I don't see the relevance" and AC's response "I bet".

GB is one of the best ..

Brauchler is doing a great job!

IMO Brauchler is responding appropriately to this hostile witness.

AC must be thinking that she has done some damage to his case or I think he would just ask the yes or no questions, impeach her and be done. IMO
by Resa7/9/2015 7:52:35 PM
I'm not sure if many of her answers are correct because it doesn't seem like she understands the questions either because she lacks command of the english language or because she is just being stubborn
by mld7/9/2015 7:52:41 PM
I thought we weren't going to put down either one of the attorney's in here anymore...
by LG7/9/2015 7:52:56 PM
See the question to me is, why didn't the defense pick more clear witnesses who would have given more direct answer.
by Tammy Garrison7/9/2015 7:54:26 PM
GB is doing exactly what he has to do. She is picking and choosing exactly what she wants to say to him, yet when Dr. King questions her, she gives the answers he wants. GB has to prove that JH was sane when committed his act. To me, this woman isn't very credible.
by CC7/9/2015 7:54:34 PM
This is seriously like Law and Order lol!
by TammyC7/9/2015 7:54:40 PM
Lol "objection to 'saved a bunch'" That made me giggle for some reason.
by Angela Freeman7/9/2015 7:57:00 PM
I think GB comes across as brusk and harsh with this witness because he is being "business like" and not letting her ramble and take over the time. You have to be a little more harsh with people that are being so self-serving and illogical as this witness. IMO
by DocJ7/9/2015 7:57:05 PM
i think he's earned the right to be condescending with all the circles that have been talked in today.
by blue7/9/2015 7:57:08 PM
I'm pretty sure Brauchler is the reason the witness is hostile. This is very uncomfortable and inappropriate and disrespectful the way he's treating her. You can get the answers you need out of a witness without being nasty.
by Ruby7/9/2015 7:57:15 PM
The survivors I'm sure are extremely happy with GB's performance. Commenters from the UK, probably not so much... not only do they hate our freedoms (firearms,etc..) They don't like it when we hold killers accountable for their actions. Can't win with those people lol.
Good Job AC, this witness deserves to be discredited. I believe she's pretty close to perjuring herself at this point.

The forest is the big picture?
by NT87/9/2015 7:57:27 PM
She is undermining her own credibility. Especially when she said she answered questions without actually understanding what was being asked. DT is internally cringing.
by MyraJ7/9/2015 7:57:29 PM
All defendants go after the defense when they are sent to prison..maybe the family should sue Gur for a shoddy job
by Dennie Carp7/9/2015 7:57:34 PM
this prosecutor........rofl *facepalm*
by Me7/9/2015 7:57:40 PM
PT asked to impeach her earlier. I had to ask for articles and help to understand what it meant. Although, I think they should ask again.
by DocJ7/9/2015 7:57:44 PM
PS - Not putting him down. Just that line sounded funny to me. =)
by Angela Freeman7/9/2015 7:57:47 PM
He's trying to discredit the key defense witness......he's doing what he gets paid to do....just like the defense..........
by SueK7/9/2015 7:57:57 PM
Hey I want that option to add to my comment after it's posted....hehehe
by LG7/9/2015 7:58:04 PM
Brauchler is taking Dr. Gur to the woodshed. It's fantastic to watch him work his craft!
by CindyL7/9/2015 7:58:13 PM
Post Card! LOLOLOL
by kdsmith7/9/2015 7:59:14 PM
She admits that she has done a clinical and not a forensic evaluation.
by 5W7/9/2015 7:59:17 PM
Per Brauchler: Dr. Reid's report was almost 60 pages long. Dr. Metzner's report was 120 pages long. Dr. Gur's report was 14 pages.
by anica.padilla7/9/2015 8:01:19 PM
Brauchler needs a handheld mic so he can drop it when he's done! hahahah
by Della (Me)7/9/2015 8:01:31 PM
Can you imagine Juan Martinez, Maricopa County, Arizona with this witness?
by Resa7/9/2015 8:01:36 PM
dont't know if its just me but, It seems like his whole cross has been to simply discredit her. Hasn't been much focus on proving beyond a reasonable doubt that he was sane at the time
by JG7/9/2015 8:01:43 PM
OMG. AC asks Dr. Gur "why not send your report in on a postcard?"
by Kristle7/9/2015 8:01:50 PM
Gettem' Brauchler! CHECK MATE!
by COMAMA7/9/2015 8:01:59 PM
I got to go for the day. NT8 take care of my girl for me.
by Tired7/9/2015 8:02:11 PM
I think she understand the questions completely. She doesn't speak the English language very well, but I think she totally understands it.
by Sherrie H.7/9/2015 8:02:16 PM
Wait a minute, we aren't allowed to have our opinions posted here about the attorneys UNLESS it's flattering to them? That doesn't seem very fair.
