    Jury rules James Holmes qualifies for death penalty for movie massacre
    Published August 03, 2015


    The decision clears the way for a last plea from both sides, including what is expected to be gripping and emotional testimony from victims about the harm and suffering Holmes caused with his slaughter.

    James Holmes' life story didn't sway jury
    By Ann O'Neill, CNN

    Prosecutor George Brauchler argued that mental illness shouldn't be used as a "shield" to protect Holmes from the punishment he deserves for taking so many lives in such a cruel manner. Holmes showed his victims no mercy.

    But in the second stage of the sentencing process, the defense commanded center stage. Holmes' lawyers didn't have to prove their points. But they had to persuade at least one juror that sparing his life is the right thing to do. It didn't happen.

    Robert, Arlene and Chris Holmes are good people, the defense wants jurors to know, and they will miss their son and brother if he's executed.

    Good Morning and Good Afternoon folks!! ~~~Big Wave~~~

    I seem to recall that Judge wanted the lawyers to return about an hour before the jury is expected to enter?? Anybody else recall that? I think he wants to hand out his opening instructions for phase 3 and give his rulings?

    Victim impact statements. Nothing too emotional though. The judge won't allow it. He said he will be keeping an eye on the jury and if they look like they are getting upset he will stop the testimony.

    Brady said she still objects to grandparents testifying!!!!!!!!!!! Said it didn't list grandparents in one law. Judge said another part states 'immediate family' which grandparents are!
    they are just too much!
    they really want to cover the horror of their client!

    I'm really struggling with this. I don't want to get a bad attitude but I'm being pushed beyond my limits! How dare they try to silence these people!! They have the right to be heard!

    I really don't understand! No pics of victims as babies.....no probative value....but, we see the shooter from birth!
    He's not the same now as he was at 2 months!

    From what I've read I agree. Death penalty is accountability for the horrors he caused. The true victims he silenced.
