I sleep with the TV on and usually don’t wake up until afternoon. It’s just the struggle bus I am on and I am tired of worrying about it. It is what it is. So I woke up today and opening statements were happening. I have no idea why CourtTV was the channel I was on. It is usually either Wendy Williams or The View that wake me up as they are on at the same time in Atlanta which makes my TV change channels. Somehow today, I got the trial. And I was able to rewind it all the way back. And then I stupidly changed channels so I lost it all.
All that is to say, I did NOT like the prosecution’s opening statement. More specifically, I did not like the attorney. I do not feel like things started off well for the prosecution based on very limited things I saw. I am watching now, but it is kind of a boring trial. As a “juror” I am already checked out and over it. I think the defense had me at the point where they said he had a lot of fentanyl in his system. But what I can’t get over is that he used a fake twenty for a pack of cigarettes. I wish I could go back in time and just buy him a pack of cigarettes. I live in a neighborhood where there is a lot of monetary discrepancy. And all I can think about is I could have saved a life for the price of a pack of cigarettes.
I totally had a talk with myself recently about sharing money with people. I need to stop doing that. I do not have a lot of money. But sometimes at the seedy places where I buy beer and cigarettes, I do sometimes pay for people or give a few handouts. Sorry back to court. WOW! The 911 dispatcher finally gets to the point. Now we are getting somewhere. She contacted a sergeant to tell them that something was wrong at the 911 call to Cup Foods. Apparently, the 911 dispatcher called a supervisor to state that something was not right with the call. She could see the video of the the site and immediately knew something was wrong. That is interesting. Now it is lunch break.
