    ” It has been my opinion for many months that defense is quiet for good reason, not because they have no defense.” My thoughts too, pbsz! And @157: Yes, I believe Elena did what she felt she needed to do and chose the best and least disruptive opportunity to do this. Thus far I see [...]

    Good comment lc! Your mention of the prosecution being a little too “cozy” with le just reminded me of something I observed on Thursday of last week. A certain reporter whose work we have been critical of in recent weeks appears to be on very friendly terms with one of the prosecutors in DT’s case. [...]

    “I’m of the belief that the “new information learned in the last 48 hours” that Bruck alluded to must be something other than Silva’s plea.” Whilst I am still leaning towards the presumption that the indicated filing of an additional motion for continuance is related to Silva’s plea deal, this is an interesting thought, cv1975.

    The court had adjourned, pbsz, and the judge had left the courtroom.

    Not seeing too much in the media which could be taken as overtly negative regarding Elena’s “message”, lauraw. I think this worked for her, and, indeed, for those of us who have questions.

    I hear what you are saying og and I am no proponent of mayhem in the courtroom or anywhere else. That being said, there are exceptions to every rule. On this occasion I must agree with wb @107 and omz @ 109. Elena chose the moment to deliver her message when it would cause the [...]

    Good point about those sealed motions.

    Admittedly, the court sketches of DT were not good likenesses but I don’t think this factor is exclusive to DT and I agree with omz’s comment @101 in that a jury get to see the actual defendant so I am still seeing the quality of these sketches as being of no consequence.

    Hear you on the “new reality about human nature”, RevBev. Recent polls show 52 percent of Americans are ok with the US’s use of torture…

    Hmmm…Hypothetical, but seems like a good time to point something out: I oppose the death penalty, SAMs and solitary confinement and deplore the current state of both the justice and penal systems in the US. In addition I support efforts to expand rehabilitation, (which is practically non-existent within the US), and understand that given the [...]

    Thanks lauraw. I am a little more optimistic on the outcome of the trial. Not convinced yet that there will be a conviction in this case, particularly, as you mention, that it seems this trial may run into April of 2015.

    “Jane, could you elaborate a bit on the “lunatic fringes”?” Actually yes I will and I apologize, wb, for my first response to your query, (@73), where I declined to do so. People should know about this stuff. Outside the courthouse and after the hearing there were several people voicing denial. (No bombs, no casualties.) [...]

    Good morning Gabriele! Please be assured, your comments are most welcome and I am more than happy to answer any questions I am able. Prisoners are able to purchase items, including clothing, via the commissary which is located within the prison. Dzhokhar, as other prisoners, has an account or fund for this purpose. Anyone can [...]

    Good morning wb.

    It was Marc Fucarile and you are correct.

    Your question regarding the “lunatic fringe” was relevant. This is an issue about which I am particularly sensitive. Absolutely no apology necessary.

    “I doubt it is a prominent issue in this case.”

    I disagree.

    And @ 67: What you say here regarding Whitehurst makes sense.

    Hello Gabriele! I am pleased to see you return to these threads. Your support is very much appreciated. It is normal for a prisoner to be allowed to change into civilian clothes for a court appearance, but to be required to wear prison clothes for transportation. Clothing such as orange jumpsuits are usually only worn [...]
