    I’m not sure either, but maybe stop everything and get another grand jury to decide all over on the indictment, or it could mean to drop the charges since something obviously very wrong happened in the grand jury selection. If the defense said it, they obviously mean it, but I can’t see that ever happening, [...]

    Wow! That’s big news and very bold of his defense, but they say there was unfairness and discrimination when picking the grand jury. There’s never a dull moment in this case. I’m sure the pros is working late tonight typing their scathing response to this. There must be a lot of merit to this or [...]

    I was also surprised and disapointed at the defense. I’m no lawyer but I would have argued that the 3, all thought DT was mistakenly identified, and was innocent, and that they still think he is innocent, and that the 3 went to his room to take the pot, and ended up taking the fireworks [...]

    The pros has asked for no more than 7 years and deportation for Dias, however the judge, if he has any sense of mercy or compassion, could give him much less time or even time served. I think what he did or they did should never have been considered such a major crime. As Lauraw, [...]

    good list except, do you really think the Norden brothers would testify for the defense considering how vocal their mother has been in her bias of DT. Why do you think they would testify? Also, the list would have to include witnesses to confirm the FBI/CIA involvement with the Tsarnaev’s and the bombing itself. Any [...]

    Thanks WB, I know and understand clearly, it only includes the certain mentioned expert witnesses. Does not include ordinary witnesses, which is good news, so far.

    I agree Lauraw, especially with your #2 thoughts. I too, think this will be the case, and the pros will be surprised, and it should create much doubt for the jury.

    It would be devastating for DT if Dias were to testify against him, (on a personal level, seeing his best friend testifying for the pros) but in reality, what could Dias really say about DT? He obviously knew nothing about the bombing prior to it, and even if after DT’s picture was on tv, he [...]

    I read all 68 pages, and it is shocking to see all that was wrong or illegal by LE. I can’t understand how all these things just go by the wayside and no one in LE is ever admonished for this horrible display of ignoring a persons constitutional rights. It seems that the constitution is [...]

    Can’t imagine what Dias is going through, so sad. Wonder if there is a plea deal? This will negatively affect DT’s trial also.

    There are now dates for both responsive and affirmative experts for the defense and pros as to ballistics, fingerprint, blood, and DNA evidence. What about witnesses or non experts. Does the defense have to reveal who these witnesses are to the pros before trial? I think there could be some big surprises here, for the [...]

    Thanks Woody for keeping the discussion going. Last Thursday the pros stated that the defense has to date, given the pros absolutely nothing. Does this mean that Doc 245 which asked for any discovery from the defense by Apr 30th, was either denied by O’Toole, or the defense has ignored that ruling,(just as the pros [...]

    Interesting: Former Boston police commissioner Ed Davis is in the town of Ferguson, being interviewed by CNN. I guess if anyone would know about overkill and militarizing a city, he would. That’s what’s happening in Ferguson right now. Looks like a war zone.

    may be true, but either way I’m still shocked over the way Dzhokhar was “captured” Why was it so important for him to get out of the boat himself, when they clearly knew he was injured to begin with and then they shot him over and over again. Were they too cowardly to get in [...]

    If a video has to be watched hundreds of times, then that’s not airtight or anywhere near reliable evidence. That’s your eyes playing tricks on you, or you making it up, after watching the same thing hundreds of times. I think even breaking it down into frames wouldn’t help. I think the pros have little [...]

    OT but, I give the residents in Ferguson a lot of credit. This is what it takes to uncover and hopefully change police brutality and prejudice, and to receive justice, we hope. If only people had protested when LE fired hundreds of bullets at DT who was unarmed and already injured, hitting him at least [...]

    It’s shameful and cruel for the US to do this to his parents. It’s heartbreaking. I hope he knows that many people do support him, but even if he knows that, there is no comfort like seeing your own parents who he has not seen for almost 3 years now.

    Wow! I can’t believe his parents are barred from entering the US. That is incredibly cruel and unfair. What did his parents do to deserve this! His mother told about the FBI being involved with TT and their whole family in the first few days after DT’s capture, and TT’s death? Of course she would [...]
