How about those Boston terrorists who dined at the white house?

Were they figments of your and Glenn's imaginations, or did they exist?

Ever any confirmation on that? You started a thread suggesting it was all true...

Take it up with Yahoo, douche. All I did was link to a story based on Karl's post.

The thread I started had to do with Saudis and their possible connection. Are you saying the Tsarnaevs are Saudi?

Also the value of circumstantial evidence.
What an odd comment. The prosecution instructed the jury? They've been seated? I've been busy working and must have missed it.

Somehow I think you would change your mind if your child were held under "circumstantial evidence" and he was denying any wrongdoing. I could be wrong, though I don't think I am.

OMG, Reader - the jury hasn't even been selected yet.
What is with you? "The prosecution gave the jury some good definition..."

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot - what jury? Are you being psychic again?

Circuit Judge Debra Nelson read the charges against Zimmerman to the potential jurors, including the part where prosecutors say Zimmerman acted with a depraved mind and without regard for Trayvon's life.

SANFORD Quietly and with hardly anyone noticing, George Zimmerman's attorneys persuaded prosecutors not to use the word "profiled" during jury selection.

That means the theory that is the backbone of the state's case that 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was profiled is now something prosecutors will not mention as they pick a panel to decide whether Zimmerman committed a crime.

The decision on the word "profiled" or any variation of it came last week on Day 1 of Zimmerman's trial, but Circuit Judge Debra S. Nelson handled the issue quickly, and there was little discussion of it in open court.

"I don't have any objection to not mentioning these words," said lead prosecutor Bernie de Rionda, and the judge quickly moved on to another issue, jury selection.

And a comment from the above story:

MichaelSF at 9:01 PM June 17, 2013

For those who do not understand the Court's ruling:

- The lawyers in an opening statement are LIMITED in giving an introduction to the jury on WHAT THEIR EVIDENCE WILL SHOW.

- A common statement made during opening statement is: "The evidence will show..."

- Lawyers are NOT allowed to present argument in opening statement.

- Lawyers are NOT allowed to make statements irrelevant to the case.(For example: "We have all heard of the term 'vigilante justice.' That's what his case is about."

- Most important, lawyers are NOT allowed to make statements for which they have no evidence.

That the Judge would prohibit Bernie "The Coward" de la Rionda's from making such statement in his opening statement shows that: 1) The Judge anticipated Bernie might try such a stunt; 2) the State has no evidence to prove those claims or support the statements; 3) if the state had evidence to support the charge and assertions made in the case, it would have produced such in opposition to Zimmerman's Motion; and 4) the Court does not trust the State.

“Meh.”

I know it makes me a bad person but on a small, sad level I actually really enjoy people who don't understand legal processes lecturing others about them.

It's like watching little kids try to teach you something. The fact are never near where they should be but the energy makes the whole thing straight up adorable!

Sorry, I'll step aside. But I really didn't know that the prosecution spoke to a jury during voir dire to educate them on circumstantial evidence and the like.

You two can have a legal discussion on the merits of the case. I'll read the books when it's over.

My children teach me something every day; patience, love, new "hot" songs, back to basic education, etc. They are sponges and it is great to share with them. Would not classify that as "adorable", would label it "thank you kids". Just saying, know it all....

Really, you want to annoy me this early? C'mon. We all know she was the clerk, EMT, police, and ate popcorn while the whole incident occurred sitting on the curb.

Give her the credit that she is due.

No way! I'm not being sarcastic, I properly love it. If anything, I would love to hear more.

It's a rather unique insight into the level of legal education available to the mainstream public. And while it's less than one would hope for, it's also really interesting to see the processes and products!

That is pretty adorable, though!

I think folks like me get so caught up in the professional development rat race that it's easy to forget how enjoyable people find really accessible, lower level learning and exchange with their kids! It's great for the kids to be able to learn and communicate through teaching and if you're getting something out of it as well, that's pretty amazing!

I'm overloaded with work right now and somewhat sleep deprived so I probably shouldn't be wasting time on here anyway. Did she use the dip flavored sprinkle stuff for her popcorn?
