"My clinical impressions" = "I made crap up because I was too lazy to follow up", IMO.

AC putting a lot of holes in her testimony.

Holmes childhood does not seem abnormal to me. I think Dr. Gur is trying to input into Holmes past things not there. It seems that Holmes is a selfish person who didn't get his way. And that, to me, is what GB is trying to show to the jury. That perhaps this mass murder is because of Holmes not being given his way. Seems to be more of an evil deliberate intent to murder rather than than due to the diagnosis Dr. Gur has given Holmes. Dr. Gur is looking very sloppy and making up stuff (not necessarily deliberately).

He's being incredibly patient....for now...

Brauchler: "That is something you do do? Sorry I said doodoo."
by anica.padilla7/8/2015 4:12:02 PM
Lol...Did AC just apologize for saying "doo doo?"
by Angela Freeman7/8/2015 4:12:04 PM
lol "do do"
by rh7/8/2015 4:12:06 PM
I personally do not believe she is lying or making things up. Her CV is extremely impressive and her credentials cannot be denied (despite that she is not board certified). She seems to have a phenomenal memory which is extremely common and beneficial for professional researchers. It is unfortunate that her report is not extremely detailed as it allows for the perception and interpretation that she is lying. She would not put her credibility and professional reputation at stake to make up details.
by LjM7/8/2015 4:12:08 PM
Did I just hear him apologize for saying "do do"?! Lol
by Nicko7/8/2015 4:12:13 PM
She is worse than a Phd student defending their desertation (sp?). At least the grad student is pretty sure they will be fact-checked and questioned. I don't think Dr. Gur ever thought anyone would dare to fact-check her. Very unprofessional.
by DocJ7/8/2015 4:12:22 PM
BOOOM. Sit down, King.
by Kels7/8/2015 4:12:26 PM
Uh OHHHHHHH........she diagnosed him before she had all the information...ie Dr. Woodcocks notes....HOLY COW!!!!
by Tired7/8/2015 4:12:32 PM
EZ, I could see it coming by the way she rambled on and on as a part of examination.
by Tammy Garrison7/8/2015 4:12:37 PM
I think this woman is very intelligent in her field, but she's got no ability to hold her own on the stand. The state is destroying her.
by litprof7/8/2015 4:12:39 PM
IMO Dr. Gur feels that she doesn't need to follow good protocol in writing a report.

Thank God my parents didn't send my siblings and me to therapy every time one of us smacked one of the other. We'd have never had time to do anything else!
by psc7/8/2015 4:20:24 PM
@Tammy G- Yep, I agree.
by EZ7/8/2015 4:20:27 PM
Can't object cuz she spilled the beans....
by Tammy Garrison7/8/2015 4:20:31 PM
Objection, this is terrible for my case!
by Angela Freeman7/8/2015 4:20:34 PM
Any reason why GB keeps bringing up "2 months before jury selection"?
by Victoria7/8/2015 4:20:37 PM
Objection, AC is destroying my witness.
by Suzanne7/8/2015 4:20:41 PM
King is going to need a new pen soon....hes feverishly taking notes...for re-direct.
by Tired7/8/2015 4:21:01 PM
"You didn't reach out to Dr. Fenton or Feinstein?" "On legal advice." ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?
by DocJ7/8/2015 4:21:24 PM
Wonder what JH is thinking about this examination.....I wonder if JH could fire his representation right now...to get a mistrial. Is that possible at this point in time?
by Tired7/8/2015 4:21:42 PM
@ litprof - I agree she is very intelligent in her field, but maybe her passion clouded her judgement of JH. AC is bringing up a lot of things that she came across doing but didn't.
by Suzanne7/8/2015 4:21:46 PM
if it is true that the DT denied access to Routh, Fenton and Feinstein as just testified to by Dr. Gur this is going to be HIGHLY problematic for the defense...I cannot believe she just went down that road...calls into question the whole basis for her report and opinions.
by PA Watcher7/8/2015 4:21:57 PM
I feel that Dr. Gur's 50 pages of publications on her CV made her (and DT) believe that she is an unimpeachable witness, which is contributing to her hostility. DT should have gone with a more experienced expert witness as PT is not impressed with her reports or testimony.
by MyraJ7/8/2015 4:22:17 PM
Looks like Teesh McGuire got a haircut
by Tjq7/8/2015 4:22:21 PM
Tara, please rephrase your comment without insulting others. I feel calling people ridiculous is insulting.
by anica.padilla7/8/2015 4:22:59 PM
It would be interesting to learn how much the DT has paid Dr. Gur--per hour or as an aggregate sum--to provide her expert opinion. I wonder how it would compare to court-appointed Dr. Reid's fees.
by Keeter7/8/2015 4:23:18 PM
Just because Dr.Gur is extremely intelligent and has an impressive CV doesn't mean she is above being vigorously questioned.
by sher7/8/2015 4:23:20 PM
@PSC - Right? Psychologists today act like violence is abnormal. I fought with my siblings physically and daily. It was weird if we DIDN'T fight one day.
by Angela Freeman7/8/2015 4:23:26 PM
This is the DT star witness? They are in trouble now
by Tjq7/8/2015 4:23:51 PM
What happened to the morning break??
by Kristle7/8/2015 4:25:10 PM
Again, I feel that she is confused as she doesn't know what PT's questions are going to be like she did with DT as well as she's not testified at trail all that much!!
by LG7/8/2015 4:25:20 PM
Sinking Battleships much today?
by NT87/8/2015 4:26:45 PM
Teesh McGuire didn't get a haircut. Her hair always looks bunched up in the back because she uses that hair clip too much.
by Kristle7/8/2015 4:27:59 PM
Dr Gur has been the USA for over 30 years, has a MD and PhD, but still doesn't have knowledge of English grammar???
by Victoria7/8/2015 4:28:00 PM
Dumb question here: what is opine?
by Suzanne7/8/2015 4:30:03 PM
@NT8 I think the game is already over!
by Joey7/8/2015 4:30:06 PM
Speaking of doo doo...she is up doo doo's creek without a paddle!
