Closing arguments in the Aurora movie theater shooting trial – People vs. James Eagan Holmes. Tuesday, attorneys will be presenting their final statements before the jury begins to deliberate if the gunman was guilty or not guilty by reason of insanity.
@Annie...now that evidence is closed it's not bias...it's a determination (at least for me)...JH is guilty and deserves the death penalty...I wasn't convinced of that until after Dr. Gur...

@jward12 We were all "speculating" that you were in labor!!
by Just Thinkin7/14/2015 5:14:22 PM
@jward12,, you had us worried,, we thought that little one to be was on the way when we didn't see ya in here lol
by shuffie cat7/14/2015 5:14:26 PM
Annie, it's too difficult to get a word in without people going crazy for those that are unbiased.
by CEM7/14/2015 5:14:27 PM
Dr. Gur testified numerous times that she put things in her report that she thought the DT wanted her to use.
by Lori Butterfield7/14/2015 5:14:41 PM
jward12-glad to have ya back. hope everything is good with your baby/labor. keep us posted
by naturegurl7/14/2015 5:14:48 PM
why are they using public defenders? Isn't the family rich? Make them pay!

"Each of these statements is used as a way to highlight what he intends, what he is capable of intending..."

JWard We were just speculating on whether or not you were in labor. You, BG & King got all our attention today. Good luck, darlin'.
by DocJ7/14/2015 5:15:36 PM
Unlike Dr. Gur they're real (ha ha ha) reference putting quotes in his slide.
by Kristle7/14/2015 5:15:37 PM
@cp....nothing personal....I agree he is representing/defending his client....I was referring to his whining.....seems innappropriate
by A.L.7/14/2015 5:16:15 PM
@yes... that's been asked and answered Several times!!
by LG7/14/2015 5:16:16 PM
Aw, thanks, everyone! Yeah, he's on his way, but not needing to go to labor and delivery yet. Just getting started. =)
by jward127/14/2015 5:16:17 PM
AHAHAHA! Unlike Dr. GUR! #touche #yougobrauchler
by Della (Me)7/14/2015 5:16:24 PM
I missed something... Are they arguing over these closings in FRONT OF THE JURY????
by fascinated7/14/2015 5:16:56 PM
jward having a baby? congrats, and good luck
by happy7/14/2015 5:16:56 PM
Somehow I don't think closing arguments will wrap up today, if they even get started!
by Marti7/14/2015 5:16:57 PM
@yet his parents have no obligation to pay. He is an adult
by Tjq7/14/2015 5:17:08 PM
@JW Good Luck and Grats!
by Abrandt7/14/2015 5:17:33 PM
Honestly, I think we all know what was "motivating" Holmes was the 50 shades of crazy that was driving him that night........Brauchler is showboating again and being overly dramatic.
by Me7/14/2015 5:17:34 PM
@fascinated, Jury is on break
by Just Thinkin7/14/2015 5:17:35 PM
PA Watcher... that may be true for you. But unlikely true for others. I've seen the same people in here day after day who have not shown an open mind at all. It's almost like watching a sports game. Which is fine. But I'd personally love to discuss with people who are looking at it more critically. Oh well. Thanks for the entertainment I guess haha.
by Annie7/14/2015 5:17:36 PM
@Anne... now that all the evidence has been provided people have a right to their thoughts of guilty, NG.... imo
by LG7/14/2015 5:17:41 PM
@fascinated the jury is already on break.
by Humble Pride7/14/2015 5:18:11 PM
JWard - will your baby be born exclaiming "Guilty and Sane!"? :)
by DocJ7/14/2015 5:18:11 PM
@fascinated: the jury isn't in the room while they're discussing this stuff.
by MacGruber7/14/2015 5:20:10 PM
I really want to hear closing arguments, but will not be able to tune in tomorrow. Have too many appointments.
by Marti7/14/2015 5:20:11 PM
So, is Mr. King trying to finish his closing statements, post his objections
by kdsmith7/14/2015 5:20:12 PM
Annie: Im right there with you---Ive been in here every day since this started and just decided its easier to keep quiet and wait...
by cp7/14/2015 5:20:13 PM
@DocJ - LoL I don't know, but he'd better wait until closing arguments are done! ;o)
by jward127/14/2015 5:20:13 PM
@Justhinkin-thanks. I am typing on my phone and it's very slow...
by fascinated7/14/2015 5:20:14 PM
@JWard - congrats! A funny visual is you giving birth, saying I can't see my iPad. What did they say?
by Suzanne7/14/2015 5:32:29 PM
@DocJ hmmm not sure I'm liking that comment about Jward's baby!! :(
by LG7/14/2015 5:32:30 PM
docj it was Dr. Woodcock on the stand. point was consciously made and I caught it too, I believe by id lawyer, but not time to go back right now to date
by okx7/14/2015 5:32:31 PM
Thanks to all who answered me. I was shocked.
by fascinated7/14/2015 5:32:32 PM
I've seen a lot of people on this blog get attacked for their opinion simply because it was different than the majority here. =(
by Me7/14/2015 5:32:33 PM
@JWard - do you have a name picked?
by Suzanne7/14/2015 5:32:34 PM
A case was reversed due to improper closing arguments? Wow!
by DocJ7/14/2015 5:32:36 PM
Need the legal beagle in here Phil!
by NT87/14/2015 5:32:37 PM
@Annie - what are you hoping to hear, at this point, to sway you one way or the other? All the evidence has been presented. Also, it is interesting to note that you only consider those of us who think he was sane and knew right from wrong as the "biased" ones.
by Lori Butterfield7/14/2015 5:32:38 PM
JWARD-I thought you went into labor!!!!
by Tired7/14/2015 5:32:39 PM
Hoping the judge overrules all of Kings objections
by Tjq7/14/2015 5:32:40 PM
When you have no defense you split hairs and try to drowned the fish. I guess that means I have made up my mind.
