Thank's Luv

Should have keys in about three weeks .. doing an early inspection was tactical on my part to move it along.

Many obstgacles now to buying a condo, even more than before, aside from usual appraisal, they can do their own inspection, delve into every aspect of Home Owners Assoc, pendng lawsuits, reserves even beyond the usual for acts of nature which nay damage the bldg, multiple proof of Homeowner's Assoc Master insurance policy, proof of owners insurance for interior, type of roof, access to major plumbing and even more. These bldgs have been up for twenty years in the highly codified City of LA, with rigorous contruction requirments, but hey treat it like they may be blown over by a strong wind...lol

This ME is a pro, but like most rigid in their original findings.
There must be some ME's and also Neurosergeons following his testimojny, who would not have been so adamant as to TA being down and without reflexes in three to four seconds. I believe that when he first testified he briefly used some qualifying or ambiquous verbage. Yesterday, in rebuttal, Ms Wilmont called his hand. He remained adamant, but did add the cavaete of body decompostion.
As I have previously mentioned, if she stabbed him first, it was a one in one thousand strike. Dangerous street thugs rarely can do it in one thrust. If JA was so lucid and calculating, she would have known it was a suicidal move on her part.
Interesting the defense did not call their own ME. They could have, since JA is indigent and the State is picking up their tab.
The defense no doubt undertands that the ME's finding just may rule out 1st degree.
If she did this and she did it by shooting him first with the gun stolen from her grandparents then I could believe it. However I think the prosecution will lose because it is just too big a task to believe she stabbed him to death, when you take into consideration the level of violence, his size and his physical fitness. The gun shot was essentially just icing on the cake.
I don't believe she doesn't remember.
I have seen comments on other sites where people with war experience talk about men with shrapnel and bullets in their brains and still cogent. Sometimes never getting them removed. The ME has lost the case for the prosecution in spite of JM proving Jodi's lies several times. I predict a hung jury.
Although since the defence has asked for self defence to be considered they must feel that they have made headway. I am sure they read these boards and while there is always a "fry em" core to high profile cases, I think there are enough comments that question the whole scenario to give the defence a feel for how the jury might consider the evidence. Due to the cost of the trial there will not be a retrial and I believe that the state will accept a plea.

Just do her and get it over with LA Guy! Kinda creepy on a thread about sick sex and murder. Asking if she trims her pu**y is a little different than Pharma talking about her husband.

Maybe Goatee is a dated term, still use it in LA (prob mispelled it, lol)...it's just a mustache with a thin line connecting to facial hair on chin. All the same length. I think your boy, Tim M, does it, but his is a little scraggy. Mine is nice and even, use my Norelco set to number three every day. Also as to my my Stash, I like a clean straight line where it meets my upper lip. Not into to wearing a beard.
Dr. Kevin Horn looked a lot better when he came to court clean shaven than when he had his beard during his first testimony.

What do you think about Robert Durst fleeing to Galveston and renting an apt. as a woman to escape police? He's a person in question about the disappearance of his first wife. Some of her friends kept journals that incriminated the husband and after her disappearance, their houses were broken into, ransacked and that information was stolen. I can see JAA's behavior mirroring some of Durst's.

I think if she had been labeled sociopath, it might have been more accurate. I'm sure she lied on the MMPI and other testing. It is supposed to have ways of detecting lying. Again, I think JAA needed to be tested by a psychiatrist. How would have have been more expensive than having four different people evaluate her?

Hey, LA, look up Dust's attorney. He was acquitted of murder because he had a REAL attorney. Squeaky and Sloth are laughable at best.
