    Frustration!

    I am getting so frustrated with this trial! With motions, sidebars, sarcastic comments to qualified witnesses and smirks and grins where their should be guilt and shame..I just want to scream! I've attached a poll..What is it that has YOU so frustrated with the trial that has you wanting to throw something at your TV?

    not JUST the sarcastic comments by the defense but ALL the verbal offerings of the defense....

    I voted sidebars but Mr Baez's objections to everything (most all overruled) is driving me insane!

    I feel for the witnesses, JB talks to them so rudely and condescendingly as if they don't know what they're talking about. These people are there to speak on their expertise on the case they were presented, no reason to be so rude.
    the above post is strictly my opinion only......for realz

    All of the above plus some ground that the state doesn't seem to be covering.

    I too voted JB's tone and remarks. Why does DS and CM not cross examine some of these witnesses?

    I put media coverage because when LKB comes on tv, that is when I feel like throwing a brick at the TV. I also hate JB's smirks and the way he treats witnesses at which I have learned to mute. I also have a tough time getting past JB's opening remarks. But yes, again, I feel like throwing the brick when LKB (or her husband) comes on.

    Also, when Geraldo talks, I want to throw a brick at the tv.

    I am frustrated with the DT's OS because it did have one desired effect- it is causing people to speculate but it has frustrated me b/c the talking heads on TV keep referring to it as if it is gospel and it is by no means been proven at all. I am glad the jury hears none of the commentary b/c it is not just about what testimony has been stated but about how that could fit the DT strategy.
    This is all clouded of course by my personal belief that Caylee needs justice and that her mom is guilty, so I guess it is just being fair, but still.

    I chose other, because between her playing legal ass't and helper of the day, it's driving me nuts. The other thing is her complete disregard for the court and why she's there, makes me want to turn the channel. The last thing, is how she acts towards JB, you would think they dated in another time and place. It's annoying.

    I am so frushtrated I can barely shwallow! Seriously, I am sick and tired of the defense slandering the witnesses and trying to make them seem incompetent. I know, I know, it's our system, but I am so tired of the lies. Now I want the truth and all I am hearing is more lies.

    And some of the talking heads are spreading even more lies! One in particular should not even be out there because she was on the defense team.

    I am talking to my television -- a lot!

    Me too - I can hardly shwallow! Why won't she look at the jury? Why does it appear she's watching a tennis match when Baez is at the podium (Baez-witness-Baez-witness). But when LDB or JA is up, her head is practically buried in her lap.

    Don't get me started, but when she does her meet n' greet every morning I just want to hurl. Oh, here, let me get that cord for you. Let me get out the notebooks and pick the one I want to read while the SA is talking about my dead daughter.

    Oh, the grooming. Can we talk about the grooming? Oh nevermind...

    DS is out of school on Monday and that will give me a good excuse to take a necessary time-out Let's see if I can really do it - LOL

    Hugs,

    Mel
