16:25-- yesitsme: Nice ranger1. It works.
20:23-- yesitsme: ----ERic. He's gonna get life w/o parole. Betcha. Betcha money.----
20:24-- yesitsme: (Listening to defense closing statements just now)
20:25-- yesitsme: I don't wanna start some crap -- but that would be ok.
20:28-- yesitsme: They're bringing religion into it just now.
20:35-- yesitsme: Wow weird!... Courtroom lights keep going out.
20:36-- yesitsme: Well ok. The went out twice. ... still was weird though.
20:46-- yesitsme: There was a loooong sermon.
20:46-- yesitsme: with Biblical references.
20:47-- yesitsme: NOW comes the real deal. Finger pointing prosecution... raising his voice.
21:04-- yesitsme: Prosecutor did say "stupider". Hahah. As in; 'who is he going to mentor in prison? Criminals stupider than himself?'
21:07-- yesitsme: They're going out for deliberation NOW. Eric looks completely unaffected...
21:08-- yesitsme: ... and I NEVER see Mat in there. He must sit waaaaay in the back.
21:09-- yesitsme: So, they called him 'stupid' above, but also "evil-genius with a half-filled death list" (- or revenge list)
21:10-- yesitsme: Decision coming!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
21:10-- yesitsme: Taking the bets. Put it up now.
: Annnnd the winner of The Voice 2014 is Craig Wayne Boyd of Texas! Congratulations! There's gonna be one beaming grandma in Forney.
: Yesterday we went to the new Groovy's downtown. Niiiice! I like the new concept for the store. It's another step in the right direction for developing downtown Forney-town.
15:29-- Tex: He is gonna get the death penalty and she is gonna get life without parole is my prediction however I think they should both get the death penalty to set an example...
15:49-- Tex: He got DEATH!!!!!
16:07-- yesitsme: Wow... did he?
16:08-- yesitsme: I forgot to take TX jurors into account. You woulda won my money.
16:09-- yesitsme: .... and wow DK - it took you a looong time to stop in there!
1:10-- yesitsme: Ok. Here is my feelings on sentencing for Eric, and why I sort of hoped he DIDN'T get Death ....
1:12-- yesitsme: My understanding is; Death Row means you get a more solitary atmosphere in prison, with certain amenities - while you sit there a looong long time until you are out of appeals. -- and in this case and the way things went, he is almost certain to get appeals.
1:12-- yesitsme: A lifer; is in with the general population - and he would have been absolutely MISERABLE there.
1:15-- yesitsme: much more fitting. Because we don't allow lynching. --- from some of the fb comments I read, he probably would have been.
1:17-- yesitsme: My gawd there were some totally harsh lynch-style comments.
2:28-- Longtimer: YIM, I agree. I'm one of these pro-life men that some women hate. To me, pro-life meaning funding and taking care of kids. I'm also pro-death-penalty, and I do think it was very appropriate for him in this case.
2:31-- Longtimer: I think the other way would have been much easier for us with him tho. Sentencing him to death gives him the 12 yr, ride the appeal train to the end thing. If they'd just given him life without parole, he'd probably killed himself long before then. He was a miserable person....and I dont even want to call him a human being.
2:34-- Longtimer: Listening to Kim's testimony, and her excuses....they're both the same. I cant imagine getting so low as they were then
4:42-- yesitsme: Her case is a little more complicated.
4:42-- yesitsme: a lot more complicated.
4:42-- yesitsme: Some of her testimony made me ill.
4:51-- yesitsme: We h'ain't seen you in soooo long 'round here! Hi hi hi
5:22-- Bill: I wonder how long before we see the made for TV movie
