    Trial Discussion Thread:

    reposting a few of the warnings:

    Okay everybody - LISTEN UP! We are not bashing, accusing or blaming Tori's family here. It won't be allowed.

    Children walk home from school every day without incident. Parents are not perfect, it's just not possible. Tori's parents DID NOT do this to her. TLM and an accomplice DID. That is where the blame goes.

    We had a lot of family bashing in the early parts of this investigation after Tori went missing and a lot of baseless accusations - NONE OF WHICH PROVED TO BE TRUE. Victim and family bashing will not be allowed during this trial.

    Thank you,
    Salem

    As some of you may have noticed, the members following this case are dropping in numbers. It's disheartening to us because we need and welcome discussion of both sides of every issue on Websleuths.

    Zero tolerance means ZERO tolerance. Please discuss this case with respect to your fellow members. Subtle and veiled harassment and/or talking in code about other members will not be tolerated.

    A word of caution on the Alerts in this forum. If you alert a post, make sure it is a clear violation of our Terms of Service. A difference of opinion is not a violation of TOS.

    Please note that everything discussed in court and printed/tweeted is now within the realm of discussion. WS has never and does not now have a policy of "innocent until proven guilty." That is for the court room. Here, we discuss, speculate, theorize and judge according to the opinions we develop from following the case.

    Keeping that in mind, abuse of our alert system is a good way to find yourself in timeout or worse. Abuse of the alert systems includes, but is not limited to:

    Alerting repeatedly on the same poster;
    Demanding a specific outcome;
    Alerting on the same post more than once.

    Once you have alerted a post, move on and don't question the decisions of our Administrators, Moderators or Owners.

    Following this trial is very important to our members and we're going to see that they have their day in court. The "zero tolerance" policy in this forum will continue and it will be enforced.

    Thank you and please carry on.

    I'm hoping things wrap up today and the jury will begin deliberations. Probably just wishful thinking on my part LOL

    When I see pictures of Tori, I see my own daughter looking at me. Tori is one of us, one of OUR daughters who never deserved to have her life taken from her. Both must be punished for what they did to her. Our children are not the pawns of deviant members of society. It must stop. These are our kids. xoxoxoxo RIP Tori. Justice is coming. The sadness will always remain. :cry:

    How will we know when a verdict is reached? I guess continue to follow the tweets? Does anybody know which reporter will alert to a verdict? I'll sign up with them. Thanks.

    n/t: I think London Free Press and AM980 will always be in court so I would go with them on getting the alerts.

    What time does court start? It's 6:48 a.m. here. Should I go back to bed for another hour? Do I remember someone saying that it starts at 10 Ontario time?

    Good morning all. Hopefully if there is any doubt in any of the jurors minds it will be erased today.

    Yes. Indeed. These names have been peppered throughout Canadian history since confederation.

    After discussing yesterday with my husband the outcome of the closing arguments he said that there is in his opinion not enough evidence to find him guilty in all three points without a doubt. He really believes too that MTR is guilty in everything but worries that the jury can built a verdict on what they have. Is anybody thinking the same?
