Witnesses appear to be unreliable : They coukd Not See.

1. It was night, Dark, Four people in the Cadillac, Montano and estranged wife Maria on the front, Boyd and ayers at the rear.
2. Two guys approach the car : Hurst and Kevin.
3. A dark Van approached from BEHIND the car. Then the gunshots.
4. Joseph Duran and possibly Terraun in the Van where bullets came from.
5. Boyd said he could Not really see and he was in the rear of car.
6. Maria was in front seat, could not see better than Boyd.
7. Conclusion : They could Not See.

Whatever. Quit trying to get Duran off. Even if by some miracle he didn't pull the trigger, he knows who did-and did he flip on them? Obviously not, or he wouldn't be sitting where he is. Second, Teraun or whatever his ghetto name is isn't a choir boy, and neither is Duran. When you lay down with dogs, you wake up with fleas. Can't wait for this trial to be over, so Duran can dip out to prison.

Terraun Berry stated that he had been threatened by the defendent. Also Nortes tied to Joseph threatened the life of his mother stating they know where and when she gets off work. I believe this explains why witnesses are scared to testify. Thank god he had the courage to tell what happened and the threats were exposed. Besides the fact that Joe ran to Mexico. Wonder which Duran family member is going to collect that reward money. These boys have all been threatened. Everything seems clear, I am sure the jury has heard enough. We will hear much more testimony today. You don't run and threaten witnesses when you are innocent. Then trying to entice the victims family, people are pretty good at seeing thru b.s...God bless us all

Ya know, I never wondered what the fight was about-I guess I didn't care. Then, I read this in the DR today-Later in the day another friend, Brandon Boyd, told Hurst about a fight he had with Duran OVER A WOMAN a few hours earlier in a nearby park.

So an innocent man is dead and a child is going to prison, over a piece of a**? That has got to be the most ignorant thing I have read thus far, about this trial. There are things in life I don't even have to think about doing-and fighting over a man is one of them. It's ignorant, childish, and just plain stupid to fight over ANYONE. IF that person want's you, there shouldn't be anything to fight about. I know a female who always wants to fight me behind her baby daddy. I will never understand it. Even if you fight the person-what gets accomplished? The person you were fighting over isn't going to change. It just shows a lack of any intelligence whatsoever to me, to fight over another person. I wonder where the female is now, that the fight was over.

LMAO @ Terraun Berry being threatened. He's a loser, just like Josie, and I'm sure he can defend himself, perhaps with one of the two guns found in his house during the search in 07. Probably one of many searches on that house. He's only a witness in this case because he's testifying against Josie-his choice was either be a defendant-or be a witness. That's how it works-so obviously he flipped on his "friend". No wonder he's being "threatened." Hurry up and get this over with, and stop wasting everyone's time and money.

Still no denial from Angelo Duran or Nick about their gang affiliatiion. The public has been informed and obviously can tell when they are being hoodwinked. Thank you for all your support Granny, Gem and endless others I believe everyone wants a good and safe community. God bless

Joseph has been identified by everyone in the van as the shooter, motive has been proven. Although threatened Terraun still stepped up, seems those threats did more harm than good. I only wish Xavier would tell how he has also been threatened. All these boys have been threatened, the public knows this now..

Seriously! A gang is a nice little blanket for the insecure dumbutts, and hormones make young people stupid. I have had the experience myself! Some dumb witch I knew in my early 20s was always trying to camp on men who didn't want her, even if they had a girlfriend. Same woman at age 40 thought I was trying to steal this guy she really wanted to be with! Puhleeze. She was always a skagg, and he just wanted to make sure he got rid of her, so I showed him where she lived. He invited me to his house to show me what he had done to it, and she showed up! He let her hang around awhile until she got drunk, as she always was, and her ride had since left, so he made me come with him while he drove her home. Nothing was going on between he and I. He was scared of her! LOL! Skagg called me for a month making sure I wasn't sneaking off to be with him...OMG...that proves people like this never grow up!

If these guys were fighting over this girl, it wasn't because they gave a crap over her, it was because they were competing. She would have been tossed when the "winner" bagged her anyway. LOL!

I believe with every ounce of my being they have all been threatened.I'm glad everyone in court heard it too. Sad part is, just because Josie goes to the big house doesn't mean his pussycats won't continue with their silly little 2thacurb. I know, we can only deal with one piece of trash at a time. I'm going school supply shopping for my son today, and told a friend what I had to buy. I listed some things, and then I said "socks and a lock, and I'm putting the lock in the sock lol." She said, "I thought he was going to school in VV, not FF?". I said " He is, but you know Duran is from VV." All she could say was " Oh, wow, as messed up as he is, I thought he was from FF. Ya, you might wanna get that lock and that sock lol."

Speaking from experience, Terraun didn't "step up." You don't have a choice whether you want to be a witness or not. If you don't tell what you know, you get to wear the silver bracelets. I don't believe for a second he stepped up out of the goodness of his heart, but rather because he didn't want to be an accessory.

LMAO twenty years later, the woman is still chasing dingding that isn't interested. How sad. That was a rather funny story though, with your male friend that was scared of her! So true, it really was about the competition and any reason to fight, with Duran and the other dude. They probably both already blew her back out,and that's what the fight was about. You banged my bz, how dare you! Like she didn't have a say in it. People never cease to amaze me.

f... the durans. Nothing will happen if these witnesses get some stones and tell all. And as for Durans neighbors ? There are plenty of ways to get these folks out of your neighborhood. Stone up and make a difference.

They aren't even Mexican. He just hid out there. They are Puerto Rican and that makes them American citizens.

You missed the point. These "geniuses" that are testifying for the defense, aren't fit for regular employment.
