Brothers + Sisters of the Social Scene:
It has been 3 long, excruciatingly painful years for the victims of the shooting in Aurora, CO, movie theater shooting. Mr. Holmes has been found guilty. The jury was assigned to deliberate whether Holmes is to go to life in prison w/o parole or the death penalty. Either way, the sentence will bring a lot of closure to all victims of the shooting, dead or alive + maimed for life. I’m watching the live sentencing on my phone, so lessee how it goes….
The jurors are in the courtroom. The verdict forms are handed to the judge.
Life without the possibility of parole is the final sentence on the first 18 counts of 1st degree murder.
Count 19: Life without parole.
Count 20: Life without parole.
Count 21: Life without parole.
Count 22: Life without parole.
Count 23: Life without parole.
Count 24: Life without parole.
This is tragic for the families of the dead, but, hopefully, closure will be brought to the maimed and their families in time.
Sentencing hearing will be on either 8/24, 8/25, or 8/26.
Now that I’ve heard and watched the whole thing live via YouTube, I only have 4 words to say on this and other trials (take the Jodi Arias trial in mind as well, of course):
The Government is rigged.
I will blog about my life in a few seconds, but, first, I wanted to blog the final sentencing phase for all of you to read, in case you thought you heard wrong.
