I’m watching the prosecution closing argument now, she is doing a good job.

I thought we might use a seperate thread for this one.

Oh, dear...


"Turning Ahmaud Arbery into a victim after the choices that he made does not reflect the reality of what brought Ahmaud Arbery to Satilla Shores in his khaki shorts with no socks to cover his long, dirty toenails," Hogue told jurors.

The speculation is that Hogue had one or two specific jurors in mind she was playing to, and was going for a hung jury.

If this "self defense" case ends with the same verdict as the last one, God help us all.

The protest that will erupt and the then all the Rittenhousers that will show up to shoot those protesters in "self defense."
I used to laugh at right wing friends who, a year ago, were convinced we were going to have an all out civil war. After Jan.6th and all the rest, I’m starting to wonder.

Give me ambiguity or give me something else.

The state has a very solid case here. Think the best the defense can hope for is a hung jury, and the state will certainly try this one again.

I know there's a lot of comparisons between this case and rittenhouse but there shouldn't be. It's like comparing apples to volkswagons.

When the DA only needs show the evidence vs "convincing" the jury, you have a strong case. This case was on steroids.

Especially when you’re drowning. I’ve seen no such nonsense from this prosecutor as we did in the KR trial.
Prosecutor in the Rittenhouse case was given very little to work with so it was just a series of Hail Mary's in order to find something he could gin up into a case.

Prosecutor in this one has no such issues. Add in that the defense attorneys can't put their feet in their mouths when they need to and this is as close to a slam dunk as you can get.
