Hope this works, I’m using a borrowed computer that I am pretty sure the ten commandments were drafted on.
Today’s video is brought to you by our own Canadian Sociopath Jian Ghomeshi, on trial at a courthouse near you for sexual assault, choking for compliance. Ghomeshi was the lead singer of Moxi Fruvous, a band nobody has heard of, but maybe me and a couple of other people.
So, day one of the Jism Trial. It was what you would expect of day of a murder trial. Opening statements, a couple of officers and evidence. It is the evidence I am mostly going to concentrate on but we will talk a little about Jism first. I have some serious concerns, valid serious concerns.
Jism’s lawyer has brought forth a motion (we are on day one and there are like 9 motions pending) that his client is a twitch and cannot possibly be expected to sit through a whole day of trial. Poor muffin. Judge granted it and expressed twice today that he wants the record to be pristine (that translates to “I know the little fuck is guilty and I don’t want any appealable errors.” I fucking love this judge. So instead of migraines we get a twitch. YAY!! It is going to be half days for the foreseeable future. Don’t expect the circus that was it which I will no longer name because this judge does not play that.
First officer up to bat did more good for the defense than the prosecution in my opinion. Officer Hulby(sic) I originally heard officer cubby and about peed myself, but I knew it was way to good to be true.
According to officer stupid, the items found on poor muffin was the decedents wallet were a box cutter with his name on one side and don’t cut your arm off on the other (maybe he assumed whoever wrote that meant cut something off of someone else) was hidden in the middle. A scuba diving knife that looked to me to be a co2 cartridge knife although I am not positive, but pretty sure. They are meant for sharks. Why? Glad you asked. It’s because they explode. Like not the whole knife but the co2 releases an explosive charge which definitely harshes the mellow of any shark trying to eat you. I can’t imagine it’s very good to stick into a person either. Also found were a set of keys that officer stupid did not notice the blood on until he was in the courtroom at which point I banged my head several times off of the ancient keyboard of Icarus or whatever this thing is and we also discovered that this trial is being sponsored by Dr. Foot foot powder since the camera man zoomed in on the label twice. Wonder how much he got paid? Also 2 Wendy’s receipts, a movie receipt with colleens name on it and a pair of teal blue panties that thank god the prosecutor said are in roughly the same shape except for the small snippets the crime lab took.
Gotta tell you, I am NOT having a lot of faith that the CSU can even type blood right at this moment, never mind anything else. I will explain why in just a bit.
Anyway Jizzy gave a statement that is not admissible except somehow portions of it are (I fucking love this judge, did I mention that?)
The defense asked officer stupid about Jism’s demeanor and officer stupid who I am pretty safe in saying does not have a psychiatric degree hidden somewhere said he seemed out of it, like he wasn’t really there (paraphrasing) and he was excused with no rebuttal questions.
This is the part where I interject that I have a very bad feeling about this trial already.
Next up to bat was officer DeBernardo which sent me back to the Bernardo murders just for a moment and I had to reconcile the fact that I was going to have to type DeBernardo at least a couple of times. I’m calling him DB. He has been in law enforcement in some form or another for most of his life. When the “survival gear” that jizzy was calling it was inventoried DB discovered blood on the box cutter. He asked who’s blood and Jism said the girls. Juvenile Miranda was immediately read. DB asked where the girl was and was answered buried in the woods. DB asked if they could get to her to help her and Jism said nope. He asked for his shoes, something to eat and something to drink. DB was instructed to halt any questioning and await transfer to another station.
This is the part where you need to pay attention. DB was shown a bunch of the collected evidence as were we all. First up was a lightweight sweatshirt with a hood. There were blood stains only on the cuffs of the sweatshirt. That was very obviously blood transfer not the sweatshirt that was worn during any kind of knife attack. A balaclava was brought out that had very obviously not been seen by CSU because there were not holes in it to check possible blood spots.
The shoes were brought out and here is where I start to have some serious questions. There was a gravitational drop on one of the shoes and a streak that looked like he’d tried to wipe it away. There was also blood embedded in the tread of the shoes so he obviously walked through the blood, but they were either not the shoes he was wearing when he killed her or he took his shoes off before he attacked her. that theory holds not much water because traction is a thing. There was no blood on his socks so the shoes were dry when he put the socks on and there was no blood on his undershirt or the shorts he was wearing. Why was he wearing shorts in 40 degree weather? There were no other clothes in his backpack. What did he have on at school that day?
So here is what I am guessing happened. Jism went to school intent on killing a teacher, his mother thought it was the Spanish teacher (motion to exclude that interview has been filed, I believe it was number 5) He took a second set of cloths with him albeit not well thought out because he forgot to check the weather. He took off his shoes and socks before he attacked her. Once she was dead he cleaned up in the bathroom because he would have been fairly bloody and changed his clothes. I think the missing clothes have probably been incinerated. He then realized he had to move the body and that is where the blood transfer and gravitational drops come into play. He tipped the recycling bin on its end and mostly rolled her into it with his feet. He tucked her into it with his hands and that is where the transfer occurred on the sweatshirt. The gravitational drop on his shoe was not very large, I would say less than 12 inches from where it dropped to where it landed. He most likely got the big swab of blood when he was burying her and realizing it he tried to wipe it off creating a blood arc on his shoe. Stabbings are messy, like really fucking messy. Hit the wrong thing and you have mount St. Helens going off in your face. Why I have questions is that nobody has seemed to notice gravitational vs blood spatter which that definitely was not. Praying really hard CSU is better than I think right at this moment.
Now, lets talk about our nipped in the bud psychopath. He is putting on a hell of a show. That fucker never moved a muscle during the whole morning. He acted exactly like I expected actually. Stared straight ahead, blinked rapidly, never looked at his lawyer, never looked around. He is going to ride the I don’t know what is going on horse into the ground.
Other pending motions-the defense objects to the medical examiner testifying, the defense objects to Colleens mother testifying to humanize the victim, the defense objects (still, some more) to the states expert witness. The Defense pretty much objects to anything that is going to put our poor little muffin away before he kills someone else.
That is it for tonight. See you tomorrow.
RBMD peacing the fuck out!
