Posted on 06/26/2013 7:09:26 PM PDT by jiggyboy
The morning saw two of the States witnesses testify, Jane Sudyka and Jeanee Manaloo, both of whom were residents of Twin Lakes at the time of the incident and who appeared to testify as to their observations that night.

Although direct was straightforward with most of the witnesses, Sudykas credibility was effectively destroyed by West on cross, and Manaloo suffered a similar fate in cross at the hands of OMara.

Anyone familiar with the backstory of Dee-Dee knows there is more than adequate fuel for real fireworks on cross-examination, but West handled her more or less with kid gloves. It is my sense, however, that he is preparing to bore in more aggressively tomorrow when he continues her cross. This seems particularly likely because at the point the Court recessed for the day Jeantel had begun to resist acknowledging prior sworn statements and West was preparing to spool up the audio recordings of those interviews to use in cross.
Despite the frequent difficulties in understand Jeantels responses, however, on one point she was abundantly clearshe was NOT happy to be in court. When she learned just before the Court recessed for the day that West anticipated cross-examining her for another two hours tomorrow, she burst out with an incredulous WHAT!?!?!? Im pretty sure even people standing outside the courtroom heard that exclamation.

Let’s hope this is a decent jury with an IQ higher than DeeDee’s.

I caught a bit of the testimony while eating a little chicken snack at Church’s. I couldn’t make heads nor tails of what she was saying. Glad I’m not a juror.
I think she was forced into becoming a player by Sybrina Fulton and Benjamin Crump. I have my strong doubts that the narrative she is giving is her own memory. Now she has the state willing to bring perjury charges if she deviates from the narrative, and Sybrina/Crump as well. Tough spot. I would not want to be in her shoes.
Jeantel had a good grasp of dates and days. She could tell the jury exactly when some things occurred but what occurred had nothing to do with anything of value.
She is going to get demolished tomorrow.
She is one mean little bitch. Totally engrossed with herself. Why? I have not idea.
I was surprised the Judge didn’t admonish her for that outburst. The Judge seems to be favoring the prosecution so far.
And the jurors are glad they’re not the court stenographer!
This was in fact exactly the term used in an objection: that BDLR was engaging in “narrative”, i.e. leading the witness more or less continuously, not Q&A. Motion denied of course.
Them court nails.
She doesn’t look very ‘little’. LOL
I thought DeeDee didn't never watch nothin' but the weather?
I wrote this on another thread:
Just the weather, and The First 48, thats all. Oh and per her scrubbed twitter feed, also MTV Jams and Fix My Life and a show about a pair of songwriters, and a Gospel show. Thats all. Probably.
I hadn’t thought of that; in all seriousness I rewound that part like five times and LMAO every time.
No kidding. I'll bet that's one court reporter who had a *big* drink after work today.
“...it looks to me like the Defense is starting to lay some foundation for both the inevitable disbarment of Crump and some soiled pants at ABC”
On what grounds would Crump be disbarred??
She also made a sarcastic comment and facial gesture to the defense attorney. I’m just surprised that the judge didn’t warn or admonish the witness about her conduct.
