The Philip Chism Trial Day 5: The Jury Has Excellent Fashion Sense Edition

November 24, 2015

Sorry, my speak and spell is giving me a hard time.

Hello everybody, you defacto law professor/dean of fuckery, doctor of doctoring/ honorary DVM/ and Queen of everything is back with another truly exciting chapter in the Chism trial.

This is day 5 of the Trial.  Day 6 will follow within the next day.

We started out discovering that the Judge was still mad and we still didn’t have a pool camera in the courtroom.  Therefore, I am relying on news reports and tweets from someone that is there.

The student that was on the stand on day 4 is back on the stand for cross by the defense.  This should be absolutely jaw dropping since all the rest of the defenses crosses up to this point have been.

Defense attorney Regan is doing the cross this time and asks if the student recalls Jizzy telling her he’d been to China.  (note to self, start checking unsolved rape/theft/stabbings in China.)  She said she did not so he showed her her statement.  She said that Jizzy was mumbling and that was it for the stunning cross of the witness.  The state decided on redirect and asked how he seemed when they were alone in the classroom and she replied that he seemed fine.

Next up on the student parade was a soccer teammate of Jism’s.  While they were waiting for the witness to be brought in the Judge remarked that this was the best dressed Jury he had ever seen on all his years on the bench.

Ramci Escorcia took the stand.  He said they were friends and played soccer together.  His nickname for Jism was Caco.  Now, Caco has a couple of meanings depending on context.  Shard, improvisational, pieces. I think that the word actually used was cacaor which can mean to fool, to mock, to chaff, to joke again depending on context.  Nether one really seems to fit, but my Portuguese isn’t bad and Caco definitely means what I said.  Anyway, he said Jism was a good soccer player because that matters. He saw him in math class and asked if he would see him at practice but Jism didn’t answer. What was he supposed to say?  No I think instead of soccer practice I’m going to kill Ms. Ritzer, rape her for a while and then dump the body, but hey if I have time I’ll try and get there?  Ramci went to the field and waited for him anyway but he never showed up.  Ramci actually went looking for him on the second floor of the academic wing, saw him and called him by his nickname.  Jism said he’d lost something and Ramci offered to help him look.  Jism said no and then broke into a run.  There was video that we didn’t get to see because of the douche cameraman that fucked it for everybody.  Apparently on the video Jizzy can be seen breaking into a run with a very confused Ramci behind him throwing up his arms.

Ramci saw Jism pulling his portable body disposal unit behind him and again asked him what was going on.  Jism said “nothing, just go to the soccer field.”  At that point Ramci did just that.  Mom of the psychopath showed up after soccer practice and Ramci told her he had seen Jism and that he appeared scared and sweating.  Jeez, I wonder why he’d be scared and sweating when he now had a witness.

Regan was up for the cross exam.  Her cross was all about his demeanor.  She asked if he seemed normal (and we have a winner for newest stupid defense question) to which Ranci answered no.  And with that question Ranci was excused.

Next on the stand is another classmate.  He said that Jism seemed completely normal to him that day. They were supposed to do math worksheets but Jizzy was doodling.

Okay we could do this all day so all the students said he seemed perfectly normal.  No questions from the defense.

Next to the stand was a teacher, Pamela Foss.  Ms. Foss said that Jism originally started college prep courses but switched to honors because apparently the severely mentally ill person was in need of more of a challenge.  She recalled a few short pleasant conversations with him and that he told her he had learned Japanese.  She stated that she and other core subject teachers(I’m going to assume that means maths, sciences, English, history etc because we just call them teachers in Canada) about him missing some homework.  Jism’s mother kept her eyes downcast as the teacher testified.  The last question from the prosecution was about a history test that day.  Ms. Foss stated that he had done very well on the test.

Susan Oker is taking the cross exam for the defense.  She asked about Jizzy being so quiet.  Ms. Foss snarled back that she wouldn’t say that Jism was SO quiet, just quiet like dozens of other students.   Pamela Foss was not the one when it came to the murderer of her friend and the defense realized it immediately.  Oker quickly muttered no more questions and Ms. Foss left the bench.

For whatever reason, the state decided to call police Lt. Michael Holleran.  He  supervises the thing that passes as the crime lab.  He went to the primary crime scene and used The chemical 5-amino-2,3-dihydro-1,4-phthalazinedione, better known as Luminol.  Luminol can detect blood that has been diluted 10,000 times. It is powerful enough to detect blood that has been painted over, blood that has been bleached, basically if there was blood there and there was not a flood, the Luminol will pick it up.  Why am I stunned that this crime lab even knows what Luminol is?

The jury was shown photo’s of the blood that had been washed away but was shown up by the Luminol.  There was also a blood drop that had been missed by the cleaner on one of the rolls of toilet paper.  The state asked him what he did next and he answered that he headed into the woods with lab employees and some troopers.  He saw a disturbance in the leaves and someone announced that there was a toe sticking out of the leaves.  The jury was told how the body was found and pictures of the body were passed around to the jury.  They were apparently quite graphic. Before the jury saw them the Judge told them they were going to be disturbing and they needed to be able to compartmentalize for their own sanity.  While the jury was working on keeping breakfast down as they took a look at the pictures the lawyers were at a sidebar. Judge Lowy mercifully called for the morning break.  He is very concerned for the mental welfare of this jury which speaks volumes about the crime.

Back from the morning recess the cross examination of Holleran got underway. John Osler is doing this cross.  He asked about Jism’s id being found on top of his backpack, the point of which was to show the jury that Jism was not acting rationally.  My thoughts are that A) he didn’t want his id on him if he got picked up and B) he had cash and credit cards off of his victim so it isn’t like he needed it and C) it was on purpose to make it look like an irrational act.

The print guy was next on the prosecution list of witnesses.  Everything that was printed was listed and then something stupid was said.  He said that the usual method for testing for prints is fuming.  Now, fuming is a way to print some stuff, but it is definitely not the usual method anywhere that I am aware of because it is expensive and time consuming.  He then clarified and said they fumed the bin.  That makes much more sense because of the lip on the inside of the lid and things.  They had to build an airtight chamber, fume with superglue and wait.  He did get four really good prints though.  It was on the back part of the lid where someone would hold it to open it.  The trooper photographed it for enlargement to better see the ridge pattern.  It was then run through AFIS .  AFIS stands for Automated Fingerprint Identification System.   AFIS returned a possible on Jism’s middle finger because he’s been saying a big fuck you since this started.  The trooper then had to manually  compared them and they matched.

The officer next explained about the stick (it was a 3ft long 2 and a half pond piece of wood just for clarities sake) and that they decided because it was porous and they could lose other valuable evidence they decided not to print it.

There were no prints found on the boxcutter, so jism obviously wiped it down.

For the defense cross examination they decided that bitching about Jizzy’s prints only being in the system for comparison because he was arrested was better than questioning the methods used to print the items.  Go figure.

The video’s were then played again and court was adjourned until Monday the 23rd.

since  I have not been able to physically see the trial, many thanks to the Boston Globe, the Salem News and Julie Manganis who is live tweeting from the courtroom.  Cameras will be back on Monday hopefully.

That’s it for Day 5 (thank you baby jesus)

The Philip Chism Trial Day 4: The Judge Got Mad Edition

November 22, 2015

Still on the borrowed computer that is older than dirt.

So, as I feared and predicted, the Judge was not amused in the slightest with the shenanigans of the pool cameraman. I do not know what exactly this particular idiot was thinking, but he fucked us for a live feed for the foreseeable future. I fucking hate this bullshit of let’s see how far across the line we can get. He didn’t just cross it, he pole vaulted across that fucker. Showing jurors faces, zooming in on the prosecutors notes, etc. Judge Lowy has  always been a huge proponent of cameras in the courtroom, he gives leeway if it is accidental, but this was so blatant that he pretty much lost his shit.  He did not say the cameras were banned for the remainder of the trial, but cameras are likely banned for the duration of the trial.  Maybe he will allow a different operator or something.

Mr. Pimentel, the Spanish speaking gentleman was back on the stand today.  His English is quite poor, but for the life of me I cannot understand how his supervisor Danny could possible confuse blue and blood, no matter how thick the accent. They just do not sound anything alike, in English or Spanish.  Danny apparently just gave him a hose and a key to turn the tap on.

Pimentel, doing his job, hosed down the floor and walls, then got a floor cleaning machine and then for good measure he used a mop and bucket.  Everything had cleaning solution in it so bye bye DNA.  In total the bathroom took about 45 minutes to clean and Pimental said that since his boss was not concerned, neither was he.  Let that sink in.  45 minutes to clean up all the blood in the girls bathroom at a high school.  A room roughly the size of my laundry room.  That my friends is a lot of blood.

Defense was up for cross examination and still asking some of the most mundane questions I have ever heard in a court room, which makes me wonder exactly what kind of fuckery they have up their slimy little sleeves.  First question was “have you ever seen so much blood there before?”  Think about that question for a moment. Is the defense trying to infer that blood in the bathroom in large quantities is a fairly regular occurrence?  Does he mean as opposed to say someone who has their period and decided to just let her rip on the floor? Is he just an idiot?  You decide. Pimental answered that nope, nuh uh, he had never seen that much blood in the bathroom before. The next question was “did you tell the prosecutor it looked like a slaughterhouse?” That was answered in the affirmative and just like that Pimental’s cross examination was over.

Former custodian Dan Marshall was next up on the prosecutors list of basically useless witnesses.  Just as an aside, if I ever get murdered in Mass.  Someone please move my body to an adjacent state.  Thanks.

Dan Marshall testified that he thought that Pimental was saying blue not blood and he thought a bunch of cleaner had been spilled. So instead of going to look for himself he just handed over a hose and a key and probably went back to watching internet porn or whatever had him so busy he couldn’t go see if maybe Pimental even needed a respirator or something with a bunch of industrial cleaner spilled all over the place. Once again the defense had no questions and Danny was excused.  Not for being a complete idiot, just from the stand.

Kelly King a forensic scientist with the state crime lab was then called by the prosecution. (I’m sorry, I’m in shock that they have a crime lab. Please give me a moment.)

Apparently, King was on site and as they were walking back a trainee noticed a toe with nail polish sticking out of the leaves.  King went back with a paramedic and uncovered the rest of Colleen.  The paramedic checked and said that she was deceased.  She was naked from the waist down and had been heavily beaten and raped.

King went to the bathroom and despite the cleaners best efforts to totally eradicate all the evidence, she found several blood stains on a wall and in the stall.

The prosecution has brought out round six hundred of the exhibits. First is a blood caked white glove, and then the other. Next was the note found saying I hate you all.  Then a sock and a yellow backpack with Jism’s identification on top of it. The backpack itself was stained with blood.  The rest of the parade of recovered clothing is brought out, both Jism’s and Colleen’s pants and underwear again. Jism’s blood stained jeans had the jury’s rapt attention.

Defense is now up. Let us see what asinine questions they ask this witness.  First question Osler asked was about the wounds.  They were very deep cuts was the reply. Jizzy perked up considerably once they started talking about his handy work.  He listened intently with a hint of a leer on his face.  Osler wants to know why there was such a small amount of blood found with the body.  That would be because she bled out in the bathroom and all over Jism you stupid, stupid person.  King didn’t say it, but you know she was thinking it.   There was a sidebar and when it was over there were a couple of questions about the tree branch that was used to violate Colleen some more and the defense released the witness.

Next on the stand was the paramedic who pronounced her pretty fucking dead.  No questions from the defense and he was done.

Now the prosecution started calling students. The first one up was the one I was waiting for; Emily.  Emily was one of the people that saw fuckwad rolling the recycle bin.  She was not supposed to be there, she was supposed to be at track practice but she had shin splints and instead she was seated at a picnic table doing homework when the murdering fuck wheeled on by.  Big man who likes to kill tiny little teachers was having a difficult time of it.  She watched him wrestle with the bin for about five minutes.  No questions from the defense because what the fuck could they possibly say with that print powder covered bin sitting prominently in the courtroom.

Last witness of the day was another student who was in Colleens class with Jackoff, I mean Jism that day. She stayed after school to get some help but ended up just drawing on the chalk board and talking with Colleen.  She wasn’t really listening to what they were talking about but said Jism seemed angry when Colleen left the room. She said before she left she told Ms. Ritzer what a great teacher she was and that seemed to piss the psychopath off.  She was the last person besides the fuckwad to see Colleen alive.

There was a sidebar and court was called for the day.

So, here are some things to ponder since lots of people are asking.  Jism definitely got blood on him, but I think he slit her throat from behind which is why his dominant hand was completely soaked in blood compared to the rest of him.  Once most of the arterial spray had subsided he spun her and did what he did and that is how the blood got on the shirts and pants.  The first pair of shoes was covered likely from a heavy rain of gravitational blood.  The second pair if you remember had only a couple of gravitational drops likely from when he was moving her.  I am also fairly certain this is not the first time the psycho has killed something or someone using a blade.  He was waaaaaay too prepared.  Scarily prepared. Like Ted Bundy prepared.

So, there you have it, Day 4, sorry for the delay.
