Aurora movie theater shooting day 46: Prosecution to finish cross-examination of expert Dr. Raquel Gur
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
Yeah. I understood the circumstance. The gefilte fish comment sounded out of the blue.

King is sooo red....I can see him from here....where ever that is...lol

Hi Clancy, glad to see you hanging in. The comment was a racial slur, like watermelon to blacks.
by oxk7/9/2015 10:17:34 PM
Apologies if I allowed a racial slur. I don't always get it.

Was the different handwriting on the same form ever get addressed?
by Brandi7/9/2015 10:17:53 PM
@brandi The judge asked if two jurors wrote on the same paper... they said no and he let it go. A little odd.
by anica.padilla7/9/2015 10:18:23 PM
On a serious note though...I'm puzzled why she's a lazy note taker since US collegiate institutions require a lot more ethical awareness than what she's claiming and she can be using.
by Ibby7/9/2015 10:18:29 PM
Maybe the reason Holmes chose the "Dark Knight Rises" could have been that there would be no children at such a dark themed movie and at that time of night?
by CindyL7/9/2015 10:18:35 PM
yes, jury said no brandi
by Ibby7/9/2015 10:18:40 PM
JH is smart. He knows what's up for him
by Tjq7/9/2015 10:18:55 PM
@Clancy I agree she is very passionate. Her passion might be confused for yelling at the jury. It could just be the way she rolls. I think having a beer with her would be interesting. :)
by vt7/9/2015 10:18:59 PM
@Brandi, I think they decided the 2 different handwritings were the same person switching from printing to cursive.
by Sheila7/9/2015 10:19:16 PM
Let's please have more class than to throw out racial slurs so we don't get another time out
by Brandi7/9/2015 10:19:18 PM
I too believe that Dr Gur is passionate about individuals suffering from any form of schizophrenia. I hope her research leads to more effective and early diagnosis. I wish better drugs are developed (effective with fewer side effects) I feel for those with the illness and the families who support the patient. Unfortunately, I think her passion blinds her to Holmes and influences her subjective interpretation of the facts which she fails to specify.
by Edy7/9/2015 10:19:22 PM
@cindyl jh did say that was one of his considerations, he did not want to hurt any children
by emma7/9/2015 10:32:24 PM
Thank you, Ibby!
by Brandi7/9/2015 10:32:26 PM
Dr. Gur released! YESSSSSS!
by flip7/9/2015 10:32:27 PM
Well that's over. Geeeeesh.

And it finally ends...............

Holmes must have liked Dr. Gur as his turn back to look at her thru past the camera.
by CindyL7/9/2015 10:32:54 PM
I don't suppose the videos are going to change my mind, so...gut feeling time...GUILTY as to all counts...jury hangs on sentencing so LWOP
by PA Watcher7/9/2015 10:33:02 PM
Was researching the Dr's experienc--pretty impressive IMO
by Clancy7/9/2015 10:33:05 PM
Have had wine with her if that counts.

The Defense is expected to rest now, correct?
by FPsych7/9/2015 10:33:20 PM
Edy.....it's tragic....young people need to watch out for themselves b/c nobody can pick their brains for them.
by Ibby7/9/2015 10:33:22 PM
Mr. Brauchler just got a high five from Ms. Teesch-McGuire! I'd give him one as well!
by flip7/9/2015 10:33:26 PM
Ive just read a quote an hour ago from Dr Gur . A jury question I think. Does serious mental illness mean your insane. She replyed no,yet 50 minutes later Mr Braucchler asks the same question and she says yes. I'm so confused
by Aly7/9/2015 10:33:41 PM
Brauchler is messy! Look at that pile of paper in front of him.
by vt7/9/2015 10:33:43 PM
Interesting testimony from Dr. Gur. I don't consider her as a "star witness" for the defense after seeing the testimony.
by EZ7/9/2015 10:35:55 PM
Game over Rover, and the next battle begins!
by NT87/9/2015 10:35:57 PM
I think the judge recognizes people need rest after Gur's testimony
by Brandi7/9/2015 10:35:59 PM
recall Nash "Beautiful Mind". He went through the treatment of the day which is barbaric by today's standards (ice baths, insulin shock, etc.). New antipyscotics are a godsend
by trl27/9/2015 10:36:04 PM
She is passionate as well.
by EZ7/9/2015 10:36:05 PM
day 46 ending stats, 39 Objections, 9 Over rules (DT) 30 sustained (PT) might be more however I will include them tomorrow.
by NT87/9/2015 10:36:07 PM
@Anica, you've done a really amazing job today!!! Thank you!
by Clancy7/9/2015 10:36:10 PM
just leave the racial crap at the damn door. Where did that come from?
by NT87/9/2015 10:36:58 PM
What's the plan for tomorrow? I missed it.
by imnotreallyhere7/9/2015 10:40:55 PM
@Phil thank you that's the same number of questions I got too- "70":)
by LG7/9/2015 10:41:01 PM

by LG7/9/2015 10:41:14 PM
