True @LG. It has got to be nearly impossible to avoid seeing or hearing about it...
Defense objects to video and jail records - based on relevance, cumulative and hearsay.
"To me there is nothing more relevant the jury can see" to determine the gunman's mental state, Prosecutor Richard Orman argues.
The jail records contain a series of requests from the gunman to jail staff - topics include questions about reading materials, funds, contact lenses, meals.
I believe the video being objected to shows the gunman in a holding cell in the courthouse.
Video is 11 minutes long. Much of it is redacted.
@tammy I'll try to summarize...
@Moonstar What is your question?
4 jurors have been dismissed from the case so far.
Phil: "Is this kind of dismissal common in Colorado juries?
Legal expert Rick Kornfeld: "I'm not aware of a case with this many alternates."
Rick Kornfeld says he does not expect the number of jurors dismissed will cause a mistrial.
Phil is discussing Gmail chats between gunman and his ex-girlfriend. Gunman mentions his favorite color is teal. He used teal-colored tape to set up the attack.
Phil describes frequent references to "cleavage" in the gunman's emails - "Not cleavage like you might think..."
Quotes from chats:

Gargi: killing people is too much effort, you'll end up locked up
most people are not worth what might happen to you coz of the
Gunman: That's why you kill many people
