    And I believe that Merritt's DT and logic shared absolutely nothing in common. Today's verdict is proof of that.

    When you read about the crimes these creeps have committed, you want to stay indoors, alone with your dog, security etc: murders occur everywhere, for sometimes little reason.:eek::eek:
    Guess you set yourself up, with reading material, your laptop, phone, and have items brought to your door.
    Even then, you may be unlucky.
    So you lose all your friends.....

    It will be great to see CM's past of crime.
    This should satisfy the jurors, knowing this evil **** will NEVER leave prison.

    Unbelievable. I'm watching the Ch.7 4pm news, with Artie Ojeda reporting. A family member (some redheaded female 35+) on her cell ph. getting into a small car and said to the camera, "he didn't mean it." Please. What. An. Idiot. (I guess it runs in the family).

    IMO, justice was served today. There was more than enough to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

    I'm happy the jury worked hard and did the right thing.

    I saw his brother tell the cameraman to "leave us alone" while hooked up to an oxygen machine. I wonder if that is the SAME brother CM beat with a lead pipe?

    Maybe. Maybe not. There's NO expiration date on Karma. And it was high time, this creep got his just desserts.

    If in a cell for 23 hours, would he be permitted reading material: books, daily papers etc?

    I do not believe they failed to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. I believe they fully demonstrated he was and could only be the guilty party.

    This is a death penalty case. To accuse a jury of voting for guilt based on emotion but not fact is pretty horrible, actually. Especially in light of all the evidence.

    I'm sorry but I disagree. I am trained to set aside emotion and focus on logic. It's an inborn trait in me that was honed by my parents and in law school.

    IMO the evidence was there. And let me tell you how "affected" I was by the case - While it's horrible and the murder of children is disgusting, I actually forgot the verdict was this morning.

    Evidence. Logic. Rational thought. Critical thinking. That's what leads to a guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in this case, IMO.

    He didn't mean it????? WTH! I thought Maline was saying the convicted quadruple murderer was innocent! Obvs she didn't get the talking points. Wow. I am stunned. I guess on the bright said, she is admitting that he actually did the crime.

    Usually kids aren't allowed in courtrooms unless it's an adoption case!

    So, when he was bashing little Gianni's tiny head over and over, he .......... didn't mean it? Yes, it does indeed run in the family. Consider the source.

    IKR? I don’t know how many times I muttered, “What <modsnip> is wrong with people?” I had to stop looking and I was only on the C’s.

    So proud of these jurors. They saw through the smoke the DT fired up and went straight into prior testimony. Into their memories of the facts.: QBs, checks, lies etc
