    That is all good, fine and right but humans are not robots. Just sayin' MOO

    IMO, he's boring everybody to death. I've only listened to a few minutes. West would be doing a better job.

    I think he is doing a good thing.. Explaining what Reasonable doubt is and showing that it is the evidence not the filling in of the gaps that makes the case..

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

    This has been the narrative from the state (and those who side with the state) from day one. That is simply the emotion talking. Constantly banging on the fact that TM was innocent, that he was carrying skittles (associated as being something a child would buy, etc). The reality is nobody knows how 'innocent' TM was that night. Being unarmed doesn't make one innocent alone. It doesn't speak to TM's state of mind that night.

    This case was brought forth because of emotion, not facts. It shouldn't be decided as such.

    I think that his manner is easy to watch and that he is going to lead them softly..

    That's why we call them "talking heads". I have NO idea who these people are, just heard the names, and they mean NOTHING to me - just disembodies heads going blah, blah, ad nauseum.

    he's going over all the legal stuff first so that he can frame his really big argument around what he already told them about the law, IMO.

    This is not exciting talk but I think it's necessary before looking at the evidence or lack thereof.

    I would think that being able to understand "reasonable doubt" in legal terms is one of the hardest thing for jurors.

    It's slow, but I think it's setting up the narrative that this needs to be decided based on evidence, not emotion.

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

    I can not imagine what it feels like to be the last one talking for your client. The one whose words may help save him from prison for a long time or not...
    BBM This is why I ask you not to worry because you, and we, have no part of making this decision for the jury. The jury's got this - whether we like the verdict or not. Don't worry about something over which you have no control, it will help you in life, IMO.

    I'm sure we'll be seeing some action soon. He did bring in a block of cement.

    He's getting started now. How many 'could of been's have you heard from the state in this case'.
