Jury selection to begin in trial of James Holmes in Colorado theater massacre
It will have been 914 days since authorities say Holmes burst into a packed suburban movie theater in the Denver suburb of Aurora, tossed a tear gas canister into the crowd and opened fire. The first panicked 911 call came at 12:38 a.m. on July 20, 2012.
The gunshots came less than a second apart, round after round, until 12 people were dead and more than 70 others injured, some permanently, in the barrage of shotgun and semiautomatic gunfire let loose during a screening of the Batman movie "The Dark Knight
The Holmes trial is expected to last much of 2015; jury selection could take until late spring. And should the death sentence be imposed upon Holmes, now 27, legal experts predict two decades of appeals.
A staggering 9,000 summons were mailed to prospective jurors in Arapahoe County. It is a net so wide that in a county with about 500,000 eligible jurors, nearly 1 in 50 residents could receive notices.
But first a jury must be seated.

Thanks for the shiny new thread and the coffee ColdPizza! Don't you be tempting me with 1,000+ calories though :giggle:
The link for the new thread will not work for me.
Very interesting short clip of forensic psychiatrists talking about Holmes' notebook.
From the article:
In the coming days, prosecutors also plan to show 22 hours of videotaped interviews that Reid conducted with Holmes. They will periodically stop the video to question Reid about the conversations.
I just checked and it's working, your here.

Good Morning, y'all!!
You got your coffee...or like me, 5 hour energy, on board?
I think this day could be interesting...but a bit boring at the same time. Might be a bit more difficult to remain focused...just because we won't have different witnesses and lawyers, different voices and subjects.
But I am looking forward what we are going to see!!!!

Simply a curiosity question...how does it being released vindicate her? Is it now known what her source was? I am assuming no, based on the 1st Amendment. I don't know why, but I find it spectacular when someone in the Press willing to go to jail for their craft!
Lots of housekeeping this morning!!!
Juror #706 needs to speak to Judge.
I do too! I for one might cave---like creature comforts of my home! But I had forgotten all the hoopla over the "notebook"
Silly me--didn't have the video on nor the volume.....:scared:
Judge is discussing whether its appropriate for witnesses to give an opinion on JH acting 'detached from reality'. The judge is offering to give a cautionary instruction to the jury to say these responses are based on observations and not expert testimony.
