The DT tried to add the parents on the victims statement list and the Judge denied it.

He was unrememberble yet they remember him?

I quit watching yesterday after they called it a day, i just got back, what did i miss today? someone wanna catch me up?
by Dan7/23/2015 9:26:52 PM
I'm guessing that the jurors don't know why they were asked to stay late. Was probably just a yes or no question so that there isn't any prejudice.

A lot of swiveling....strategy that he's mentally ill so don't kill him?
by Kristle7/23/2015 9:27:00 PM
But none of those folks were a girl that he slept with for the first time in his life who dumped him. Gotta go guys. See you tomorrow.

I hate when work gets in the way . . .sigh, so much to catch up on now!
by Just Thinkin7/23/2015 9:27:05 PM
I think the jury is not fooled by this group. It seems they are just jabbering about "Jimmy" without adding a thing to his defense. Who can blame them for not wanting to stay.
by JW7/23/2015 9:27:06 PM
Remember yesterday morning, The DT had to object to 53 pictures. hence now they are behind the timeline, made the jury wait for two hours.
by NT87/23/2015 9:28:57 PM
@PA LOL, I felt that smack too
by Loz7/23/2015 9:29:06 PM
My thoughts exactly, @Michelle.

"He would come toward the crowd silently from the side"
by Loz7/23/2015 9:29:09 PM
something to be said about jury selection by all involved. Maybe questions/suggestions should be included in future law texts for what not to do, if the defense. Trauma has been looked at somewhat one sided, when sentiments raised; these people not
by okx7/23/2015 9:29:10 PM
@okx, or oxk, whoever you are.... I am comfortable with who I am, and no---I don't wish to occupy the same human classification space as James Holmes.. If I think Holmes is a monster, I will call him a monster. Unless the moderator says I can't do that.

@PA Watcher and Suzi--I'm from California, but my mom grew up in Arkansas...having visited, I can say there are quite a few ducks and june bugs down there. Big skeeters, too.
by flip7/23/2015 9:32:08 PM
I wish we could see the picture better
by caz7/23/2015 9:32:09 PM
cont'd. JW disagree, they have plenty to say, it is different from listening to those involved in the trauma
by okx7/23/2015 9:32:12 PM
@Loz that was practice for him.......
by NT87/23/2015 9:32:14 PM
Teesh-McGuire is going to cross.
by Kristle7/23/2015 9:32:15 PM
Anyone else have a feeling that a lot more went on in the Holmes home, that we will never hear about?
by bonz7/23/2015 9:35:10 PM
OMG..Higgs...WTH are you doing? Yeah, let's emphasize he's a lurker SMH!
by PA Watcher7/23/2015 9:35:12 PM
@Nadine--hahahahahaha...that was a good one! Anyone think that Dr. Gur is going to get more psychiatric defense work after this trial? I sure don't.

by NT87/23/2015 9:35:34 PM
Is she leading this witness or is she leading this witness? I can't figure it out...."was it only once?"
by Loz7/23/2015 9:35:36 PM
Godwin: "I thought there might be a learning disability because he would not speak with me." The other kids assured her that he was "crazy smart."

by litprof7/23/2015 9:36:40 PM

by NT87/23/2015 9:37:20 PM
I am not sure how these witnesses are helping show mitigating factors.
