    Yes, to key in the lock. Also, I'm impressed if I'm to believe she shot that weapon with a single hand. It usually takes both hands to get the proper grip?

    No matter who it is, I would hate to testify after Bo's father. I bet everyone in that courtroom can feel the profound loss.

    :) Hello,

    1st BBM: Yes, good question, and I think it will be impossible for them at this point.

    JMO but I really think AG, her defense team, and her entourage, truly believed she was going to walk away from this. And that didn't happen. Not much they can do, IMO.

    2nd BBM: She already hung herself when she took the stand ... the defense has to know by now she was not a good witness in her defense. But then again, it AG's choice to take the stand a second time, which would be a mistake at this point.


    MOO

    I don't remember, does the jury have any emotional or psychological services provided once this is all over?

    Bothams fathers testimony seemed to get to the judge too. She looked quite emotional after that. AG’s mum is up next. Think that’s why judge took quick break to gather herself as let everyone else do same xx

    It’s so sad to see this. Grief is the hardest emotion to deal with and to have to do it in a public setting must be horrendous.

    I believe putting the key in door was to go with AG's narrative that the act of inserting the key is what pushed open the door that was ajar.

    I think she went fight or flight mode and fought because she had weapon. I don’t think she thought much past open door, have my weapon going in. All her training said call for backup. She then just tried to find a narrative that would help her. She wasn’t that clever about it either imo

    We will see what she gets. Again, if it is because of the texts, legal or not, that is wrong. MOO

    I see your perspective. It feels like they will influence the jury negatively..

    None of us would ever expect anyone to see our private Comms but ultimately she did send them and it does show her character.

    One thing I am sure of...the world has lost a gift. It will never be as good as it once was. Botham was someone that the world needs. I cannot fathom to loss for his family and friends. It's staggering.

    Yes she did! And a jury consultant on L&C is saying her testimony is what probably convicted her. And that's why you don't let your clients testify. It's too risky.

    But I think with a self-defense case you have no choice but to get up there and say you feared for your life and had no choice. And as a police officer, she had to. So it was a double edged sword for defense.

    Arrogance def played a role in her attitude on the stand! I don't think defense will let her take the stand in this phase.
