    I will have my meal prepared for me that day by my lovely husband. He won't be able to pry me away from this chair on Tuesday!

    Me too!!!

    I missed the Casey Anthony verdict while I was on vacation... at a lake in the middle of nowhere VA... with no cell reception or TVs. & I'd been watching the trial every day that summer because I was unemployed at the time. Then when I finally found out she was found NG... on ALL charges (except lying to the police)... and that she was already out of jail, I FLIPPED OUT! I was in such shock... & seriouslyyyyy questioned the effectiveness our justice system. Heck... I'm still shocked over that one.

    Would an alternate be brought in if a juror became too ill to carry on deliberating?

    Yes Dr Reid was amazing--and I think part of the reason he was so amazing is that he doesn't have an agenda. No bias towards prosecution or defense. He did his evaluation without influences---and it was honest and truthful. Yes I do think JH has a mental illness---but I am leaning with Dr Reid towards schizoaffective disorder with APD thrown in. And, according to the statutes of the state of Colorado he is not legally insane...I think he is a very angry young man and has been for most of his life.And, he would kill again

    IMHO

    If a juror cannot continue for X number of reasons, the alternate would be brought in and then the jury would have to start deliberations all over from the beginning.

    We had lots of discussions about this in the JA 2nd trial because it almost happened. There was a juror that should have been kicked off the jury and we were discussing this. So I think I have this right how it works.

    I have to admit I won't be very happy if JH gets NGBRI. I totally believe the prosecution have proven their case. I truly hope the jury thinks so too.

    I really liked Dr Reid for the same reasons you mention. He was an absolute professional. And his memory was excellent! I believed everything he said when he testified. I trusted him. I had none of these feelings with Dr Gur.

    Exactly -- even if it is audio & video -- let the pt. know that it's being recorded -- panic -- then just kind of ease into it, etc., and everyone in the room will eventually fegeddaboutit. Even if it clicks & clacks. That's what happens nearly every time -- at least that's what my psychiatrist friend tells me. She has always video'ed her pts. But she does have a little "get acquainted" time before she starts it rolling & not usually in the same session if budget allows. JMO.

    Excellent & informative post, dr dona -- thanks -- again my psych friend says in a full episode, her pts have trouble getting to the loo -- driving down to the theater would be impossible -- and loading a gun without getting carried away and shooting a picture off the wall in his living room, not evah.

    IMO, organizing something that big which took days requires someone with a lot of concentration, determination, carefulness, etc., etc. I don't see a florid psychotic being able to do this if given a list and a month to do it. Never. JMHO>

    How can the shooter make this choice not to testify? He's insane, right?

    Here's a thought - if Gur was positive about her opinion, then why did she have to argue & yell? Why didn't she present her opinion in an intelligent manner? She was so casual about it, "someone with that high of IQ (that really wasn't that high), would never write such bizarre things."
    That doesn't sound like a medically sound statement by an expert! IMO, KWIM?
