    I stated ealier that there is no agreement on how to do volumetry on the amygdala--inaccuracy of borders and variations among the population. She did use the MRI as a diagnostic tool. She testified that his amygdala, hippocampus and another areas were smaller than normal and this supported her diagnosis of schizophrenia. Also a drop in IQ from 123 to 117 is insignificant and could be due to inherent error in the test. If he went from 123 to 100 that could be significant.

    Dr. Gur agrees with King that Dr. Reid offered "suggested" answers numerous times in talk with JH. #theatershooting

    JH on video: "I never told anyone I was angry." This is the "hating broccoli" discussion. #theatershooting

    Gur says the "consistency of the content" is what's most important to note for a psychiatrist. #theatershooting

    I just looked up synonym's for both Indifferent and impersonal..and guess what..many words in both appear to represent the same attitude...

    King must think the jury is ignorant and won't get it..He (Reid) also asked if JH would agree or not?? and of course King didn't bother to mention that JH agreed with that alternate word for it..

    I can not wait until Dr Gur Is off the stand. At least I know I won't have to see her tomorrow. My husband said "I'm getting out of here if I have to listen to her" when I put the trial on. I had to put on the headphones lol. I can't take much more of her.

    This is about the only thing I agree with Dr. Gur about..That many mentally ill stop taking medications and not self report it to professional..Due to feeling better and not liking the side affects. After that..she went too far in her pontifications..

    JH stopped taking meds because it wasn't working fast enough..not because of side affects and obviously NOT because he was feeling better..:scared:

    IMO, it's a concern for me that NONE of the defense are too bright. Things they object to doesn't make sense, etc. Do they want the court to believe they are 'inefficient council' for an appeal? Or what?
    I've seen some very, very good defense attys. in action, so much that sometimes, I can see a reasonable doubt even tho I have a bias against the defendant. But, this team? I don't know.

    Judge in Aurora Theater trial says defense can't show 5-hour video of suspect saying he's afraid of "shadows." Inadmissible evidence. #9NEWS

    Gur - when a person doesn’t have delusions and listens to it, it’s overwhelming to hear and see how it incapacitates

    OK, she can't say that he's compliant in taking meds? We know prisoners hid or 'fake' taking meds.
    My juror question- How can you be certain he's compliant in taking meds?

    Gur says that JH didn’t choose his delusions. He found them distasteful. He made every effort to not have thoughts.

    Gur says that JH was able to suppress delusions but mission overcame desire to get well. Its part of psychotic process

    The problem for this defence is their client admitted everything right after the mass murder..The defence's only option was to create an Insanity Defence and couldn't find reputable professional (board certified) to agree..THEY knew they would ruin their reputation..Not worth it!! They must have found Gur under the last rock they turned over..LOL

    As for constant objections..It's soley used to stop the bleeding..King is not incompetent..Just knows HIS witness was exploding in front of him..:facepalm:
