    This is the Bosma murder trial daily discussion thread. The trial daily discussion thread is for discussion of trial evidence/testimony only, not for general discussion, posts about past threads, other members, etc. Off-topic posts will be removed.

    Note: Only testimony that is published through MSM reporting (articles and tweets) is allowed. Keep discussion focused on testimony as it becomes public knowledge and remember to link up to MSM reporting of same.

    Any testimony that might remain under Publication Ban, and any courtroom discussion that takes place when the jury is not present, is strictly off-limits. Posts that violate a Publication Ban, or discussion when the jury is absent, will be removed.


    At all times, keep in mind Websleuths TOS, so affectionately referred to as The Rules.

    There will be ZERO TOLERANCE for snarky or disrespectful posts and/or subtle digs at other members. Mods will not be PMing you with explanations, you will find your post has disappeared, or that you can no longer post.

    There is to be NO name calling or name variations, not even of the accused.

    There is to be no BICKERING between members. A difference of opinion is NOT a TOS violation. Some will think one or both of the accused are guilty, some will think one or both are not guilty, and some will be on the fence. All of that is okay and should NOT BE ATTACKED. If you disagree, that's fine, move past the post. If a post is offensive, alert it and let the Mods review it. If you respond to the post, both the offensive post AND yours will be removed and may result in other consequences.

    Other reminders for reference as we have respectful discussion in each of the daily trial discussion threads:

    Abuse of the WS Alert feature can have consequences including timeout or worse. Such abuse includes, but is not limited to:

    • Overuse of the alert system

    • Repeatedly alerting on the same poster

    • Demanding a specific outcome

    • Alerting on the same post more than once

    Once you have alerted on a post, please move on without discussing it, and don't question the decisions of our Administrators, Moderators or Owners, and don't expect personalized responses with explanations about a particular decision.


    The principle of “innocent until proven guilty” is for the court room … it is not required that Websleuths members adhere to that principle. Members are allowed to discuss, speculate, theorize, and judge according to opinions they develop from following the specifics of the case.

    If you have any questions, PM a Mod and we will be happy to assist you. The main Mods/Admin for this trial will be Bessie, Coldpizza, and sillybilly.

    Tim Bosma trial: Cross-examination of Mark Smich continues
    CBC News Posted: May 17, 2016

    [​IMG]
    link

    The cross-examination of one of two men charged with first-degree murder continues today after Mark Smich was grilled by his co-accused's lawyer about the whereabouts of the gun that Smich believes was used to kill Hamilton's Tim Bosma.

    On Monday, Smich could not remember where he buried the gun. He faced tough questions from the lawyer of co-accused Dellen Millard, but didn't have a lot of answers.

    "Is this some gun burial-induced amnesia?" lawyer Nadir Sachak said. "You seem to have forgotten every detail except it's buried in some magical forest."

    CLAIRMONT: The two — very different — sides of Mark Smich

    This version of Smich never went to police about Tim's murder. It orchestrated a delivery of weed (and the murder weapon) from Millard's home instead. This version of Smich hid the murder weapon in his mother's home, to distance himself from it.

    Then he would try to sell the gun.

    "Mark Smich, could you tell the jury how much you wanted to profit from the death of Mr. Bosma?" asks Sachak. "How much was his life worth to you?"

    Smich doesn't reply.

    The jury must wonder what the real Smich would answer.

    BBM - because everyone was bored to tears with the questioning yesterday. More of the same to come today likely.

    Millard's laywer Nadir Sachak starts by saying between May 6 and May 22, Smich doesn't contact police. Smich says that's correct.
    by Adam Carter 10:12 AM

    Sachak says Smich also didn't contact police. Dungey objects, saying he has solicitor client privilege.
    by Adam Carter 10:13 AM

    Goodman tells Sachak to move on.

    The jury is now in and Mark Smich is back on the stand. #Bosma

    Lisa Hepfner ‏@HefCHCHNews 1m1 minute ago
    #Bosma jury is here. Sachak is asking Smich about May 2013 and not contacting police. "That is correct," Smich agrees

    molly hayesVerified account ‏@mollyhayes 1m1 minute ago
    Sachak establishes that Mark Smich did not go to police. Smich agrees, he did not. #Bosma

    Susan ClairmontVerified account ‏@susanclairmont 1m1 minute ago
    Sachak is up and on. Establishing Smich didn't contact police after #bosma murder. And he never contacted police after his arrest.

    molly hayesVerified account ‏@mollyhayes 59s59 seconds ago
    Even after his arrest pre trial, Sachak says he did not go to police. Dungey objects-cites solicitor client privilege. #Bosma

    molly hayesVerified account ‏@mollyhayes 51s52 seconds ago
    Judge agrees. Tells Sachak to move on. #Bosma

    Smich never contacted police, Sachak says. Smich lawyer Dungey objects; Smich had retained a lawyer. That's not a proper question.

    Lisa Hepfner ‏@HefCHCHNews 52s53 seconds ago
    Judge says Sachak can't ask about talking to police from May 22 on. Sachak asks about code to avoid police. "I sold drugs, sir," Smich says

    "Smich also testified he didn't talk to Millard's girlfriend, Christina Noudga, the night Millard was arrested. Both she and Marlena Meneses, Smich's girlfriend at the time, have testified Smich spoke to Noudga, which set in motion a plan to get drugs out of Millard's house."

    Could he have been mistaken, or is he sure his memory was in tip top shape? As they go through those dark days following the horrific crime we will see a trend of where his memory seems to fade. So far, he is on par with CN.

    "Sir you live by a code, and that code is to avoid police at all costs, correct?" Sachak says. "I sold drugs, sir," Smich says.
    by Adam Carter 10:13 AM

    Smich says it wasn't a code he lived by, it's because selling drugs is illegal.
    by Adam Carter 10:14 AM

    Sachak says it's his "belief system" to mistrust police. Smich says no. "You have no faith in the police, isn't that true sir?" Sachak says. Smich again says no.

    Sachak: You live by a code. To avoid police at all costs. Smich: I sold drugs, sir. #Bosma #HamOnt

    Peter Akman ‏@PeterAkmanCTV 2m2 minutes ago
    Judge warns Millard's lawyer again - not to editorialize in front of jury and to just give short snappy answers. #Bosma @CTVNews

    molly hayesVerified account ‏@mollyhayes 2m2 minutes ago
    "I sold drugs, sir. It's not necessarily a code it was an illegal activity I was involved in so..." Smich says. #Bosma

    molly hayesVerified account ‏@mollyhayes 2m2 minutes ago
    Sachak suggests again it was his "belief system" to "mistrust all police officers." #Bosma

    Sachak now asking about Smich's aspirations to be a rapper. Smich says it started as a hobby, but he became more serious about it and wrote lines with Millard.
    by Adam Carter 10:15 AM

    Sachak says Smich's raps reflect his inner most values. Smich says that's not true. "It's an art form," he says. "You raps are a diary of your inner most thoughts," Sachak says. Smich again says no.
    by Adam Carter 10:17 AM

    Sachak now says we're going to see some of Smich's raps.
