omg, jward...you need to watch it
by Loz7/8/2015 2:53:40 PM
Me too, EZ, and I'm surprised by that, since she is suppose to be their star witness.
by Tammy Garrison7/8/2015 2:53:43 PM
Gur: "I've said too much" AC: "Agreed"
I literally almost choked when I heard this yesterday! Laughed so hard...
by Loz7/8/2015 2:53:49 PM
Just noticed that too @Tammy, no comment button.
by Kristle7/8/2015 2:53:52 PM
@Tammy I've had problems with comments today.
by Tjq7/8/2015 2:53:56 PM
@loz.. that line and the "That'd be great." had to be my fav lines of the day
by ms7/8/2015 2:54:37 PM
i think i like it better like this anyway, anica. Probably easier for you to maintain as well. I'm glad I wasn't here for the bickering yesterday.
by Loz7/8/2015 2:54:40 PM
good thinking, @anica. yesterday got way out of hand.
by blue7/8/2015 2:54:42 PM
Not sure why court has not resumed yet. We are still seeing the Colorado Courts slate on the feed.

Thank you Anica, for removing the comment button. My blood pressure will hopefully now remain under control today! Smile....
by LK7/8/2015 2:57:30 PM
People will still be antagonistic without the comment field, but the comments do add some humor/drama to the mix.
by Kristle7/8/2015 2:57:56 PM
Is somebody at the courthouse to check the "switch"?
by Tammy Garrison7/8/2015 2:58:04 PM
Judge must be talking to the attorneys
by Tjq7/8/2015 2:58:06 PM
I think if Dr Gur is made a hostile witness then what about the hostile prosecter .
by Garden7/8/2015 2:58:09 PM
I still don't understand why DT is focusing on the November event. It speaks to absolutely nothing related to the planning and actual shooting, IMO. I am getting so frustrated with them. Grrrrr.
by DocJ7/8/2015 2:58:13 PM
Revenge is boring.
by Patty Scabby7/8/2015 2:58:16 PM
Thank you Anica. I am not an expert on blogging but I think your doing a fantastic job of keeping us up to date and on point. Thanks again!
by Tired7/8/2015 2:58:25 PM
@ DocJ - over the air antenna does work it's channel 9-3. Not the quality of picture that D7 has.
by Suzanne7/8/2015 2:59:21 PM
I second that Tired!
by Loz7/8/2015 2:59:54 PM
@ anica,, suggestion for viewer Poll,,,,, Do you feel the Mental Health Professionals did everything possible with the information they had from Holmes prior to the shooting,,,Yes,,, No,, Not Sure,,, or do you feel the Mental Health Professional hands were tied with inadequate laws to take further action
by shuffie7/8/2015 3:00:05 PM
Suzanne, is it on or are you getting the same signal as D7?
by Tammy Garrison7/8/2015 3:02:51 PM
I think of it this way as far as the prosecutor goes: He is speaking/fighting for the people that died and cannot speak/fight for themselves. He also speaks for all the injured and the families of the dead and injured. That's a heavy weight and I can see how that would fire you up. Big responsibility.
by ms7/8/2015 3:03:14 PM
@Suzanne I like my anetenna - I can see things better than on the little iPad :) Just noting that the feed hasn't come up on even the antenna, and I usually get it before D7, due to routing issues for them.
by DocJ7/8/2015 3:03:28 PM
There were over 200 votes on the poll yesterday about whether Dr. Gur was holding her own against AC with "no" ahead by about 20% I think.
by Kristle7/8/2015 3:03:30 PM
I think it was quite apparent yesterday that when GB initially asked her about having a conversation with the DT about video taping the evaluation, she froze and only admitted to the conversation that happened yesterday. Then later, GB brought up the conference call that they had with King where she referred to a DIFFERENT conversation they had about video taping. She was definitely trying to keep that from the PT and the jury. Watch it again to understand what I'm referring to. It was kind of "slimy" to me...
by Loz7/8/2015 3:03:47 PM
i think this trial starts late more often than it starts on time. whether it's coming back from lunch or breaks or starting in the morning. lol.
by blue7/8/2015 3:03:51 PM
by Tara7/8/2015 3:03:52 PM
@kristle i think the final result was 148/72 on no/yes respectively and the rest were unsure and there were a lot of unsures.
by blue7/8/2015 3:06:03 PM
Late today. Anyone fill me in on what's going on? Why no court?
by Angela Freeman7/8/2015 3:06:05 PM
Boy this is the first time we haven't been able to see in the courtroom with such a loooong delay.
