Discussion in 'Trials' started by Tippy Lynn, May 26, 2020.
Thank you. That makes sense.
no live feed in the courtroom yet. Maybe in 5 minutes:
It's been a pleasure watching and discussing the trial with you all. I am on pins and needles here.
Yes... 4 hours...after nine months of testimony
not sequestering... another motion, still not sequestering... another motion, still didn't sequester....
That is just one reason. There are more.
Downtown workers have all been told to go home...schools hopefully get students home . this is one day earlier than they thought. Got to be guilty on all three.
I recall that... but uggh, that is crazy, isn't it?
That’s what google told me! I was in elementary school and on a field trip and we were at the varsity in Atlanta and I just remember the eruption of celebration that happened there. I really didn’t understand much of the dynamics of the case at the time, but looking back as an adult, it’s very interesting.
here's the Reuters lnk in case any of the others goes down.

They also wanted a change of venue, so that could be grounds.
What time do schools get out there turaj?
The kids getting home safely was my first thought.
Yes it was...I was in shock...
Most schools had distance learning this week because of the verdict watch and fear of riots.
From the rather fast verdict, seems like the jury didn't squabble but worked well together. JMO
Well I was way off with my prediction of 7 days in jury deliberation. I guess I owe someone $20 now.
Considering they’re back so soon, it seems this will likely be a guilty verdict; however, as I mentioned yesterday, iirc in Oscar’s case, who was killed by an Oakland Police Officer, the jury was out for 9 hours and came back with involuntary manslaughter instead of 2nd degree murder.
I don't see the sequester as an issue unless we get information that a juror or alternate was swayed. IMHO, it is too easy to say that the outside influences were a factor. These folks lived through a summer of protests, riots and violence in their community. If anything, those factors would make the jury prejudiced/fearful. If they took their oath seriously, their work should not be discarded. What is happening now and the climate of the nation don't seem to be worthy of an overturn unless we get information that directly points to an issue.
At least 1 minute. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh
Totally agree. There is always reasons to appeal and appeals are almost always filed - we don’t live in a vacuum and the jurors were vetted by both sides. It will be up to an appeals court to decide then. This was not an easy jury to pick and common sense needs to prevail as well.
Bumping live feeds (everyone’s talking a mile a minute lol)
