    CO - James Holmes Trial - *Penalty Phase* #3

    From witness stand, James Holmes' dad tries to bridge an unfathomable gulf
    By Ann O'Neill, Ana Cabrera and Sara Weisfeldt, CNN
    Wed July 29, 2015

    Centennial, Colorado (CNN)On the 58th day of his son's capital murder trial, Robert Holmes took the witness stand on Tuesday and repeatedly tried to make eye contact with the mentally ill young man he still calls "Jimmy."

    He spoke of his son's idyllic boyhood in Castroville, a small California town south of San Jose that treasured its children. He described the social awkwardness and isolation that came with a move at 12 to a bigger city, San Diego. The boy once surrounded by a pack of friends suddenly had no one.

    But he still had soccer, and he still had school. "He still had a family that loved him," the elder Holmes testified.

    He looks back now at that move as a pivotal time in his son's life. There was a before and an after. Before is the Oak Hills neighborhood, near Monterey. After is San Diego.

    We had a lot of testimony from the dad. Right from the birth of the shooter up till present day. George Brauchler was cross examining him when court ended for the day. He will be back today as well as the mother.

    We also have to sit through the remainder of the videoed testimony that was recorded last Friday when the jury were sent home. The poorly juror is better but other jury members are now getting sick.

    They're replaying the VMs of Dad to the gunman. One he said it's Memorial Day. At that time the gunman was already preparing the shooting and had bought some of the gear by the end of May! No wonder why he never answered dad's calls. That is so eerie.

    Good Morning WS Friends!

    See you here soon.
    Perhaps we will hear from JH's mother.

    After listening to testimony from JH's father and JH's sister, I continue to think that there existed an unordinary degree of detachment within that family unit.

    One poster repeatedly challenged my opinion yesterday, and that is OK, because it is my opinion. However today, I will take my belief even one step further by saying, something was just off in that family. You are only as sick as your secrets. JMO. JH's mother's testimony may influence my thinking enough to reverse it. On the other hand, she may validated it. In the end, it is only my opinion.
