Day 34 in the Aurora movie theater shooting trial – People vs. James Eagan Holmes. Today, CU psychiatrist Dr. Feinstein will return to the stand. 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'm not sure what Higg's questions are getting at...
by NH6/18/2015 8:25:31 PM
Higgs does remind me of Marcia Clark too.
by Kristle6/18/2015 8:25:32 PM
have to say she is good.
by Sheri Reining6/18/2015 8:25:34 PM
@Anica: TY lol ;) brb again
by Kristle6/18/2015 8:25:36 PM
after seeing how he acted and fooled them at this point I don't think being on a 72 hour hold would have really done a whole lot!! He is to smart and knows how to play the game...imo

Thanks anica - thought I was going fruity..

Marcia Clark lost BIG!

Dr. Fenton told Dr. Feinstein she thought the gunman had paranoid thoughts. Dr. Feinstein said he was describe it as vigilant, aware of his surroundings.
by anica.padilla6/18/2015 8:33:27 PM
@flip, no I have not changed my opinion on Fenton. FeinStein was nothing more than a consult. hence my Question on wether he is being sued. Fenton is from what I am told.
by NT86/18/2015 8:33:32 PM
So this is all Feintein's and Fenton's fault.....? Is that what I'm supposed to take away. Sorry this isn't helping me with insanity. It seems overkill....
by NH6/18/2015 8:33:36 PM
@MJ--look for it on replay. It is absolutely worth seeing.
by flip6/18/2015 8:33:39 PM
Both of the psychiatrists went by the letter of the law and of their professional ethics....so easy in retrospect to blame someone else. They are no different from other medical providers who cannot force their patients to take medication, get treatments, have surgery, etc.

Phil/Anica--Early in the Higgs cross of Dr. Feinstein today there was a gaffe about some report from June 11. Many in the courtroom laughed out loud at the back-and-forth. You want a fascinating clip to replay, find that exchange and focus in on Holmes. First time I've seen him obviously laughing out loud, right along with everybody else in the courtroom.
by flip6/18/2015 8:34:18 PM
@flip, not so sure he heard the homicidal thoughts.......
by NT86/18/2015 8:34:24 PM
Yep Higgs has the same hand moves and body moments as Clark... wow I didn't see it until during this cross.... wonder if she's been told this?
by LG6/18/2015 8:34:26 PM
HIggs certainly likes to use hand gestures
by mandi6/18/2015 8:34:27 PM
wish higgs would step away from the mic if she's going to wear a headset. i feel like we're in a tunnel.
by doggett6/18/2015 8:35:26 PM
Yeah Doc - give it to her.... "The report wasn't in my words..."
by NH6/18/2015 8:35:29 PM
by doggett6/18/2015 8:35:30 PM
HaHa!!!! "I wouldn't use that word"
by Stephany6/18/2015 8:35:32 PM
@flip will do!
by MJ6/18/2015 8:37:57 PM
Yuk, I saw him laughing too
by 19186/18/2015 8:37:58 PM
Higgs almost comes off a condescending to the dr.. May not play well with jury
by mandi6/18/2015 8:37:59 PM
I liked Feinstein correcting Higgs about the report not being in his words, but I would think the report and these proceedings are serious enough to go through with a fine tooth comb, not just skim.
by Niki C6/18/2015 8:38:03 PM
this is not looking good for the People Yeks.
by Sheri Reining6/18/2015 8:38:07 PM
Higgs on the attack.
by flip6/18/2015 8:38:11 PM
This is a very powerful cross for the Defense
by Adam6/18/2015 8:38:37 PM
HIGGS: It's not unusual for people to avoid saying things that might get them locked up? DR: Yes, right
OOOOPS...kind of makes the point he was sane, huh?
by PA Watcher6/18/2015 8:38:41 PM
@flip, Feinsein is denying the homicidal thoughts now?
by NT86/18/2015 8:38:42 PM
She is talking over Dr. Feinstein's answers.
by CindyL6/18/2015 8:44:33 PM
Absence of swiveling during this testimony....hmmmm
by flip6/18/2015 8:44:34 PM
its frightening how these attorney's try to turn the tables on what one says.....
by MarcyScala6/18/2015 8:44:36 PM
Prosecution needs to fight back on this.
by Sheri Reining6/18/2015 8:44:37 PM
Interrupting the witness and being very condescending...not a big fan of Higgs.
by JM6/18/2015 8:44:38 PM
This attorney is very disrespectful of this witness....imagine the jury is noticing her outright hatred and anger
by mld6/18/2015 8:44:40 PM
The Defense is doing a terrific job in showing the ineptitude in the care JH received. Feinstein ans Fenton seem very amateur compared to the "expert winesses"
by Adam6/18/2015 8:44:42 PM
@NT8---no, not at all.
by flip6/18/2015 8:44:45 PM
Why are they making him out to be the bad guy?
by Tammy6/18/2015 8:44:46 PM
That's the point of the DT to make it not go well or sound like it's not going well for the PT
by LG6/18/2015 8:44:48 PM
Feinstein is just as good as Higgs.
by MJ6/18/2015 8:44:49 PM
@flip, neither of these two have the qualifications that Dr. Reid has.
by NT86/18/2015 8:44:50 PM
@NT8--Dr. Feinstein testified at length about the homicidal ideation and what Dr. Fenton and he (Feinstein) tried to do to help Holmes. And, he corroborated that vague, undefined homicidal ideation does not provide a sufficient legal cause for ordering a 72-hr involuntary hold.

The Google chat records between the gunman and Ben Garcia are now available here: bit.ly
