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
According to the DSM V mourning is a mental sickness, so I guess if you look at it the right way thinking about killing is a sickness.

@ Mayday remember she's got that family obligation for today her time is extremely limited if she's going to make it there in time

King takes cues for objections from Nelson, IMO.
by Kristle7/9/2015 3:34:16 PM
@kristle no chance he will get the death sentence. It's Colorado and he's mentally ill whether at the exact time of the shooting or not, the man is mentally ill. Colorado would never allow the death sentence for him.

Brauchler, may I have your autograph?
by Kels7/9/2015 3:34:51 PM
I believe she is a great DR, but this testimony is awful
by emma7/9/2015 3:34:53 PM
@Mike - Were you in any classes with him?
by Brandi7/9/2015 3:34:55 PM
What kind of evaluation did Dr. Gur proceded to?
by Humble Pride7/9/2015 3:34:59 PM
BIG swivel's from JH right now

Cindy, I don't see her as gullible. I see her as paid.
by Tammy Garrison7/9/2015 3:35:08 PM
Also, this is already longer than twenty minutes...but I love it so who cares!
by Kels7/9/2015 3:35:13 PM
@Kels - HA!
by anica.padilla7/9/2015 3:35:40 PM
anyone else notice that dr. gur has started rocking in her chair like JH

by Kels7/9/2015 3:35:45 PM
@Kristle surreal is not the word. I mean I've had conversations with him in school. He was such a nice guy. He looks so different now. Like night and day.
by Mike7/9/2015 3:35:51 PM
What kind of clinical experience does Dr Gur have?
by Humble Pride7/9/2015 3:35:54 PM
@brett, I have a feeling he'll be convicted, there will obviously be an appeal, but based on what CO governor's have said, he'll never be executed.
by Kels7/9/2015 3:35:59 PM
We shall see Brett. We shall see.
by FMM7/9/2015 3:36:04 PM
Not sure how much her opinion or report is worth due to it being incomplete and insufficient
by Mandi7/9/2015 3:36:14 PM
It may be slow going, but love how methodical AC is being in his dismantling of this witness and her conclusions.
by sher7/9/2015 3:36:30 PM
Sounds like Gur is retreating to "irresistible impulse" which (I think) is no longer recognized in CO.
by Rob7/9/2015 3:36:34 PM
Mara, mine is clear and un-interupted.
by Tammy Garrison7/9/2015 3:37:30 PM
It really looks like the DT's objections are coaching the witness.
by Humble Pride7/9/2015 3:37:35 PM
The judge did say 20 minutes is 30-45 minutes lawyer time. LOL!
by Suzanne7/9/2015 3:37:43 PM
Yes, I think today is the day that JH will do a complete 360.
by MyraJ7/9/2015 3:37:55 PM
re, the Dr. chair-swiveling: I see it as "mirroring", a technique used by many therapists to build rapport with the patient and increase their trust in them. She is subconciously saying, "trust me, I know what I am doing" to JH.
by DocJ7/9/2015 3:40:35 PM
Dr. Gur reminds me of a ghost hunter. Sometimes they look at things that are not there because that's their mind set. Dr. Gur has her mind set with tunnel vision.
by Anita Bowen7/9/2015 3:40:38 PM
I read somewhere AC was a JAG attorney..my husband worked with JAG in his past-- they are awesome unrelenting intelligent in their quest.
by Jewel7/9/2015 3:40:44 PM
@Humble Pie not a whole lot. I went over her CV and it looks like she devotes a huge proportion of her time to research rather thank clinical work.
by MyraJ7/9/2015 3:40:49 PM
@ brett & kels keep in mind that its all based on the current gov of when his execution date is set for. Our pathetic excuse for a gov now has shown he is gutless with the stay he granted for Dunlap, but who knows 20yrs down the road if there will be a real gov in office who won't be swayed. I do think that this state would execute him but honestly IMO the jury has sees that he is indeed mentally ill, & won't give the DP I see him getting LWOP.
by JG7/9/2015 3:41:25 PM
Yes I was in 11th grade science class with him.
by Mike7/9/2015 3:42:00 PM
I like that Brauchler is alluding to the idea that JH has been being manipulative!!!!
by Brandi7/9/2015 3:42:04 PM
I opine that Orman looks better in a dark suit. Fair to say?
by Kristle7/9/2015 3:42:06 PM
shes spends most of her time writing papers to get herself published.
by mom7/9/2015 3:42:11 PM
@ humble I saw that also. She changes after an objection.
by Suzanne7/9/2015 3:43:09 PM
@ Anita - Totally agree
by SMH7/9/2015 3:43:14 PM
I wondered about that too, Humble.
by Tammy Garrison7/9/2015 3:43:15 PM
Who thinks King is up there saying, "He said 20 minutes, Judge. Now I will have to have her up there for the rest of the day to fix this and it's not fair"?
by DocJ7/9/2015 3:43:19 PM
She could read JH mind when he was committing the crime but not after he was arrested?
by Humble Pride7/9/2015 3:43:21 PM
by emma7/9/2015 3:45:27 PM
Careful Kristie, King might object as calls for speculation
by JG7/9/2015 3:45:29 PM
@Mike: OMG, I can't imagine what you must be thinking about "that guy"!!
by Kristle7/9/2015 3:45:40 PM
I think Brauchler considered running for governor last time but didn't do it. Maybe he will next time and if JH is on death row, who knows!
