Any more snarky, personal attacks and there will be a few members not posting for 3 days. I rarely issue TOs during verdict watches because I like to permit those following for months to be able to follow & post. However, you guys have options. Scroll & roll, use the ignore feature or sign off for a while. If you CHOOSE to continue to respond rudely, Time Outs will be issued starting now.

Some of you panicked last night because I opened the thread very close to when court started. Tonight I will not make things anymore stressful then they already are by opening the thread so close to
the time court starts. Tonight I will open the thread around 3:20 AM Eastern. Assuming court starts the same time as it did last night. If it doesn't I'm sure I will get right around 1198.324.001 private messages
telling me so which is a good thing. I need a lot of reminders
See you in a bit.

Another Day, Another Thread.
Good morning from Las Cruces, NM. 1:22 a.m. Guess I'll sleep when I'm dead.
Justice for Reeva!Blessed are they with nothing to say and the wisdom not to say it.

Let's hope this is a more satisfying day in court.Any trial, is less a quest for the truth than a struggle between “two competing narratives”. It’s simple: “the story that can best withstand the attrition of the rules of evidence is the story that wins” Janet Malcolm.

As you can see Harmony2 went to the trouble to give us delicious refreshments. Thank you Harmony2.
This thread is now open.
Please remember scrolling is your friend. Do not respond to posts that violate TOS but hit the alert button instead. It's the triangle in the lower left hand corner of the post.
I will be asleep in exactly 48 seconds from when I hit "Post" but if anyone of you misbehave I'm sure I will dream it and then I will wake up grumpy. So be nice.
Thank you all for participating. I know how frustrating this case is. Thank you for your patience.
