trial thread: 3/8/2012

New thread for a new day. Please remember the rules





discuss here.

when posting an opinion please remember to use your



--------
the crown will present its' case in chapters:




Chapter 1: The day of the kidnapping. The surveillance video showing Rafferty driving up the street outside Tori's school and McClintic walking Tori up the street. Witnesses from and around Oliver Stephens public school will talk about seeing Tori.

An identification officer will use photographs and maps to show the route from Woodstock to Guelph.

Tori's mother, Tara McDonald, will testify about the frantic hours the family spent looking for Tori.

Chapter 2: Terri-Lynne McClintic. "She was an essential part of all that happened," Gowdey said. "I expect her credibility will be a major issue in this case."

Chapter 3: Guelph -- video surveillance and bank records detailing the events there.

Chapter 4: the Mount Forest death scene, which the jury will visit. "It will be difficult to go to the very place where this happened, I know that, but understanding the crime scene is crucial to understanding the crime," Gowdey said. Photographs, some of them graphic, will be used to explain "exactly how the killing happened."

"Unfortunately it is only through them that you can fully understand (the) evidence," Gowdey said.

Chapter 5: Police interaction with Rafferty.

Chapter 6: The searches of Rafferty and McClintic's residences and the evidence found.

Chapter 7: The Honda Civic. What was found inside.

Chapter 8: Rafferty's connection to the Mount Forest area.

Chapter 9: Comments Rafferty made to friends after April 8. "He had some interesting things to say to other people about Terri-Lynne McClintic and about the kidnapping itself," Gowdey said.

Chapter 10: The May 15 weekend and Rafferty's actions.

Chapter 11: The BlackBerry. The BlackBerry allowed police to track his movements April 8 and after.

Chapter 12: A recap of the surveillance video.

Exclamation

reposting Salem's warning from yesterday:

Okay everybody - LISTEN UP! We are not bashing, accusing or blaming Tori's family here. It won't be allowed.

Children walk home from school every day without incident. Parents are not perfect, it's just not possible. Tori's parents DID NOT do this to her. TLM and an accomplice DID. That is where the blame goes.

We had a lot of family bashing in the early parts of this investigation after Tori went missing and a lot of baseless accusations - NONE OF WHICH PROVED TO BE TRUE. Victim and family bashing will not be allowed during this trial.

Thank you,

Salem

A police officer who was part of the investigation into the disappearance of Victoria (Tori) Stafford will testify Thursday, as the Crown wraps up the first section of its case against Michael Rafferty.

Article: How to talk to your child about Tori Stafford

Those in the field of child psychology say the tragic death of the eight-year-old girl from Woodstock isn't only affecting children who knew her or went to school with her, it's affecting children everywhere.

and

By talking openly with children, the idea that it could happen to them dissipates.

"Tell them the things that happened to Tori are very rare. It doesn't happen very often. It's very unusual. Part of the reason Tori's death is a big story is because it is nasty and rare," she said. "It's reasonable to directly ask them what they need to feel safe and what that is most often is to feel a bit of control."

A long time ago it had been reported MR was being held in Chatham I believe, does anyone know if that is where he would be staying during the trial, or would they have moved him to London for the duration of his trial? Not that it really matters, just a question that came to mind.

Many years ago I did some work in the local Sheriff's office here (as in my place of residence... not in ON) for a time. In my humble opinion, the hour and a half travel distance would make it prudent and cost effective to keep a prisoner in the city they are being tried in at least for the weekdays, possibly for the duration of the trial.

Random side-note: Globe's style team tells me the term "take the stand" is wrong in Canadian courts, since we use a witness box, not a stand
