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.

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
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!

I bet if Mr. King ever calls Dr. Gur again after this is over, she will hang up on him.

about 1 paper a month, I think they said.
by Tammy Garrison7/9/2015 3:46:52 PM
If you want to see how he would look in his dark suit, just look at his twin brother sitting behind him. LOL

@Emma: JAG's are military attorneys.
by BernerMom7/9/2015 3:46:59 PM
@DocJ - I can see that, I also see how it could be a self soothing motion on her part since she is prob uncomfortable with her testimony being blown apart
by Brandi7/9/2015 3:47:03 PM
Emma.... JAG stands for Judge Advocate General who are the legal folks among the military.
by Sherrie H.7/9/2015 3:48:06 PM
@kristle I only want to remember him prior to the shootings. That was the James I knew.
by Mike7/9/2015 3:48:16 PM
I've been waiting 2.5 days fro this line of questioning (with this witness).
by Rob7/9/2015 3:48:26 PM
Mike, schizophrenia is a progressive disease. While in retrospect, we can say well that guy was a little weird, the brain disease is progressing. Generally, erupting in psychosis late adolescent and early adult. Gur's research focuses on diagnosing earlier and treating before it becomes full-blown. Preventable tragedies!
by LorettaOstmann7/9/2015 3:48:31 PM
it is very relevant
by mom7/9/2015 3:48:33 PM
JAG= Judge Advocate General. Legal branch of the military

"Hypothetical"? JH did just that!
by DocJ7/9/2015 3:48:39 PM
District Attorney George Brauchler: "This is not hypothetical."
by anica.padilla7/9/2015 3:51:04 PM
Gur has a plane to catch! Not sure what time so she won't be here all day
by Tjq7/9/2015 3:52:26 PM
Sounds like Judge is getting irritated with King. lol
by Brandi7/9/2015 3:52:28 PM
I agree with King here -- this is nowhere near a hypothetical.
by Lynn7/9/2015 3:52:30 PM
here here for the bieber policy
by JG7/9/2015 3:52:32 PM
Ah! Anica! You need to tell Brauchler and King that too, then.
by Tammy Garrison7/9/2015 3:52:36 PM
I think I remember DR saying that she wanted to balance career with ability to raise her children so research would make that easier to manage.

@anica - I second the motion to ban Beiber comments!

Found this article while research for whether or not Colorado is likely to execute someone mentally ill. It is a lengthy one with lot's of good photos: www.dailymail.co.uk
by CindyL7/9/2015 3:52:50 PM
Dr Gur is very wise. She is not stupid. She is carefully thinking through her answers because she has someone ready to pick apart and try and discredit all that she says.
by nora7/9/2015 3:52:53 PM
Is Brauchler using a book Dr. Gur wrote against her?
by CindyL7/9/2015 3:53:03 PM
@naturegurl, yes, thank you thank you thank you!
by Kels7/9/2015 3:53:08 PM
OVERRULED Mr. King!
by Mayday437/9/2015 3:53:09 PM
If possible I do plan on visiting him in prison/mental hospital one day.
by Mike7/9/2015 3:53:14 PM
King: "I'm going to object to this narrative question... it's not a hypothetical question." Judge Samour: "Overruled."
by anica.padilla7/9/2015 3:53:57 PM
Agree that Dr. Gur is mirroring JH. She stares at him during bench conferences like she's trying to continue studying him.
by Kristle7/9/2015 3:54:50 PM
Blanket statement, since Anica says you cannot post the name of who you disagree with. I found one of the fans who stated she wanted to watch JH die with the pump in his arm. She can disagree with me, but since the violence she is perpetuating through the spirit of her words shows that there is violent minded people talking here. If so, take the job of executioner and don't let them cover your face. Bring your kids. Teach them well.

Ummm...King just objected and said this is not hypothetical....I'm not sure I would have said that but ok!
by TammyC7/9/2015 3:55:31 PM
AC is so good with this hypothetical situation.
by Suzanne7/9/2015 3:55:35 PM
Anyone else think King is pissed???
by Victoria7/9/2015 3:55:37 PM
Can someone please explain the significance of a "Speaking Objection"
by Just Thinkin7/9/2015 3:55:38 PM
Mike, why? just curious is all
by mom7/9/2015 3:55:40 PM
@CindyL, oh yeah. And it's so good.
by Kels7/9/2015 3:55:44 PM
@Mike, what was he like in school? Did you speak w/ him often? Was he very shy/ not talkative?
by Kate7/9/2015 3:55:49 PM
Papers are down, here it COMES!
by Kels7/9/2015 3:55:51 PM
CindyL the prosecutor did that at least twice yesterday, why not again today.
by Humble Pride7/9/2015 3:55:54 PM
I wonder if these "overruled" objections are going to be listed at the top of the defense's appeal.
by Lynn7/9/2015 3:55:58 PM
@Mike Bless you. If he gets out of this alive, he will need people like you. I don't know if I could do that.
