    Just wondering......I don't suppose there is a diagnostic tool or method used during an autopsy that would determine that cause of death was BOREDOM????

    I can only imagine the hour upon hour that Alison had to endure listening to him wax lyrical about how he did this and he did that...look at me look at me.

    basically to sum it up, Gerard is a legend in his own lunchtime, but don't despair you may only have missed a fraction of his biography, he could be telling us his wonderful qualities for days yet.
    His fellow prisoners must be enjoying the peace while he is away, he must be going down a treat there (not)

    A good post, with plenty of food for thought. And yes, I think the prosecution may well have blown this one. I'm not a lawyer, so I missed the nuances of the subtle building of a case - it just seemed to go nowhere, gave the defence a lot of free kicks, and ended with a whimper. A lot of the material that has been discussed on here over the last couple of years wasn't even mentioned.

    However, as much as I try to remain impartial and inbiased (I do, I really do), I also have come to certain conclusions. And being a local and also knowing several of the people involved in the case, I am acutely aware of being influenced by local feeling and the opinions of those even closer to this case than I am.

    But, as Alioop correctly pointed out, it is the jury, and the jury alone, who will decide. Even the judge can only "direct" to a degree, I believe. The jury can still make up their own minds. And it has to be unanimous. No majority verdicts here. (For the benefit of our American friends on here).

    So all we can do is watch and listen from the sidelines, and personally I hope that the prosecution can get a bit more creative and aggressive in their cross examination than they were in presenting their case.

    And of course, the summing up will be so important.

    Is it wrong that I had a chuckle at that? :p Regardless of what I've said in my previous posts, he is certainly an ummm, unusual character to say the least!

    There is a lot here that I agree with.

    I personally believe he is guilty.

    I don't think the case has been proven beyond a legal reasonable doubt.

    I do have to say also that I don't believe the B-C clan sat down one day and decided the answer to all their problems was to kill Allison. They may not be the most likeable of families but consider their son and brother has been accused of a heinous crime and how would any of us act in those circumstances? Not at our best I would guess.

    I also have this silly little hope that he is innocent. Not found innocent while really guilty, but actually innocent.
