    CO - James Holmes Trial Discussion - Begins April 27, 2015 #12

    Jury selection to begin in trial of James Holmes in Colorado theater massacre

    It will have been 914 days since authorities say Holmes burst into a packed suburban movie theater in the Denver suburb of Aurora, tossed a tear gas canister into the crowd and opened fire. The first panicked 911 call came at 12:38 a.m. on July 20, 2012.

    The gunshots came less than a second apart, round after round, until 12 people were dead and more than 70 others injured, some permanently, in the barrage of shotgun and semiautomatic gunfire let loose during a screening of the Batman movie "The Dark Knight

    snip

    The Holmes trial is expected to last much of 2015; jury selection could take until late spring. And should the death sentence be imposed upon Holmes, now 27, legal experts predict two decades of appeals.

    A staggering 9,000 summons were mailed to prospective jurors in Arapahoe County. It is a net so wide that in a county with about 500,000 eligible jurors, nearly 1 in 50 residents could receive notices.

    But first a jury must be seated.

    I don't know. I don't suppose there are many witnesses left. Maybe more survivors?

    Hello Friends-
    cujenn81 made a great post on the last page of thread 11. I don't know how to bring posts over from another thread, just cut & paste, maybe?
    Anyway, thanks cujenn81, for a great summary post about her thoughts on Fenton.
    Even if Fenton did ask for a hold, I really doubt she'd be able to have it enforced. Usually the person in question is really displaying behavior that is clearly violent to others or self, ranting, babbling, etc. and it also has to show they cannot care for themselves. jh was in no way currently displaying behaviors at that time. They would've approached him & saw a very calm, quiet fellow who clearly was in touch & had his faculties, IMO. They just would question him on his statements of 'wanting to kill people' & jh would not have admitted to it. He made statements from the first social worker that he wasn't going to tell more because he 'didn't want to be locked up'!
    Anyway, I doubt the hold would even happened, IMO. Only if he 'lost' it when he was approached to 'take him away' & he's just to slick for that.
    I just think it's going a bit too far all the outrage/blame against Fenton.

    I think Lynne Fenton's evidence shows that JH was not showing any signs of insanity. I believe she would have tried to have him put on a hold. She did strike me as a good doctor although I still wish she hasn't assumed what she thought he was saying. She should have made sure.

    Good Morning WS Friends!

    I think judge is not pleased that DT "can't" begin its case until June 25th. That will mean several days vacation for the jury if PT completes its case this week. Judge clearly does not want that. I think Judge will work on DT to fast-track. JMO.
