    My belated thanks to MaHouston for posting GZ pictures at the police station, where he looked uninjured, and with a faint rectangle mark on his nose. The mention of recoil is also interesting. in the light of the faint mark

    An INNOCENT teenager on his way home has been killed with nothing but a fruit drink and skittles on him. The grown man who shot him dead walked away free until the case caught national attention. The evidence showed no sign of GZ's DNA on TM, no eye witnesses, there were no medical documentation, yet we're asked to believe that TM had repeatedly punched GZ's face and smashed his head against concrete. The dead victim somehow became the villain....IMO

    It is an extremely poor introduction to closing... IMO

    Good morning, all!

    MOM is sooo much easier to listen to than BDLA, IMO.

    I think he is nervous this morning and hasn't settled in to his groove yet. But believe me, even if it feels boring to us, that jury is on the edge of their seat yesterday and today, listening very intently.

    MOM already used the typical defense move in closing of having the defendent stand up and MOM putting his hands on him to huminize him. I'm pretty sure this is SOP in defense closing arguments, IMO..or maybe i'm still reliving the JA trial

    Such a radical change in the speaking tone and demeanor than the raised voice we heard from BDLR yesterday.

    If the evidence for the State's case is not there, you have to be fair. (I just made that up.) MOO

    I am not worried about the reaction of the people but the influence thinking about it may have on the jury.

    I am only concerned about the jury feeling free to make the right decision, not the popular one.

    Thank goodness, pundits won't be deciding this case. Most of them are "entertainment" and their views are slanted to keep viewers interested and the ratings for their show high.

    The only thing that really matters is what the jury decides.

    He NEEDS to get to the point, to make a memorable statement. What I'm hearing is a lot of nothing. GET ON WITH IT, to the point, these people aren't stupid.

    i agree that he's starting off pretty slow. i have a feeling he will build up steam towards the end and have his strongest points towards the end. it kinda seems like he might be going over the law portion first. imo
