Aurora movie theater shooting trial day 20: Videotaped interviews with gunman to be played in court
Day 20 in the Aurora movie theater shooting trial – People vs. James Eagan Holmes. Today, prosecutors plan to question state-appointed psychiatrist Dr. William Reid to the stand and play videotaped interviews between the doctor and the gunman. 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, Colo., 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
I don't think he was interested in covering his tracks at all, he wanted the world to know that he was responsible for all this terror.

@Ann, the judge did not want the trial televised, which is why we can only see it via closed circuit and only Denver 7 has permission to show it.

Dr. Phil's season finale this year was a 15 y/o schizophrenic teenager who bludgeoned his mother to death w/ a sledgehammer and set the house on fire trying to murder his brother. By time he interviewed him, he's already been convicted. Really would have liked to of seen that trial because the young man took the stand in his own defense and TOTALLY botched the whole trial for himself.

It was not made clear who the female is in this photo taken with the gunman's cell phone.

Videos prolly after lunch, but we shall see.
by Kristle5/28/2015 5:04:15 PM
Has anyone noticed that the defendant seems to focus on the physical exhibit of the theater regardless of where it is located, rather than on the witnesses, judge or attorneys? It's almost as if he is internally replaying that night in his head, rather than paying attention to the court proceedings.
He has also never exhibited remorse to any of the testimony of the surviving witnesses.
There appears to be no empathy for the pain and suffering he inflicted.
That is not to say he is "legally insane": but certainly a DS-5 antisocial personality disorder potential.

@Niki It's in my Google Docs account, but I've set it up so anyone can view it. I update it while I watch the trial. :)

@Penguin - if only we can be so lucky as to have JH do the same...

HLN did an unsuccessful change of format about 6 months ago. They brought back most of the news type shows but did away with court programming. Now they only show an hour of Ashleigh Banfield giving legal updates. I don't know of any channel that shows live trials now.
by Lori Butterfield5/28/2015 5:05:01 PM
@rheba so you created that document?
by Niki C5/28/2015 5:05:47 PM
@McGruber: Perhaps nothing. "QWERTY" is the first 6 letters on the upper left of a keyboard. It is also the name for the type of keyboard standard in the U.S.

I have seen that picture before and that girl looks completely photoshopped into the picture.

sorry I was just ABLE TO GET ON. wHAT IS HAPPENING

Another photo taken with the gunman's cell phone and sent to his email account.
by anica.padilla5/28/2015 5:07:42 PM
@Lori thanks. I watched much of Zimmerman's trial on HNL and couldn't believe they weren't showing this one!
by Ann5/28/2015 5:07:52 PM
I think that girl it is a poster
by Casey5/28/2015 5:08:11 PM
@rheba - that list is very well done. the last date I saw is 5/12 - is that as updated as it is?
by Niki C5/28/2015 5:08:15 PM
@Niki yes The court has given a witness count and I'm right on the money.
by rheba5/28/2015 5:08:37 PM
Comcast has Justice TV and they are airing this trial. Unfortunately I have DirecTV.
by Ann5/28/2015 5:08:54 PM
@KP Thats because it was photoshopped..
by Finnegan5/28/2015 5:08:55 PM
@rheba...thanks for posting the witness list! :-)
by Liz5/28/2015 5:09:04 PM
@NH It's doubtful JH will take the stand, this is a death penalty case. That is WAY too risky!
@lori butterfield You got that right, HLN's format change after jodi arias' trial was AWFUL. They advertised upcoming trials they planned to televise after hers and george zimmerman's that never were televised.
by Penguins2195/28/2015 5:11:04 PM
Can his parents testify or will they does anyone know?
by Kristle5/28/2015 5:11:06 PM
Thanks, that's what I was getting at ;)
by KP5/28/2015 5:11:07 PM
@Niki Thank you. The list is current, it's up to Mr. Phelp's recall. The next witness will be #171
by rheba5/28/2015 5:11:08 PM
@Liz Thank you :)
by rheba5/28/2015 5:11:09 PM
I have Comcast, I have not seen Justice TV yet. I will have to search for it.
