    One question then I'm going to bed. I know the mother, Azalee, testimony was a little disjointed but why would she have to pay to have Timothy's body embalmed a second time after there was a second autopsy? The man was clearly dead so why would they even bother to embalm?

    Hi Lambchop!
    I'm not even sure if that is accurate. I'll check into it over the weekend and see if there's anything about it.

    I'm surprised that the jury did not come back with death because of the testimony of JH own witness, the teacher. We know there were at least three vehicles sitting there when JH shot Tony Howard. The teacher testified that JH then ran to the road looked down towards Officer Christian and then towards the cars, but he chose to run towards the other officer. JH could have taken any one of those three vehicles by aiming his gun at them and telling them to get out of the car and taken off. Except for the teacher, the other two vehicles were still there on the scene.

    I also found that the teacher's complaint regarding LE not getting back to him disturbing when he admits he gave no information to them regarding what he saw because he was afraid JH would come after him. I don't think this witness helped JH in any way.

    Anyone think it is possible that Matthew pulled the car up to where he parked it after JH jumped out and that is why the officer's car was not pulled up all the way behind the SUV?

    Lambchop, Officer Howard testified that it wasn't a traffic stop, but rather a casual stop to talk to Matthew. He said he didn't know Jamie was in the SUV with him. At least that's what I got from the testimony.

    I have to laugh because it was Jamie's brother, Matthew, who testified that he did not drive the car into the parking spot. That the police car drove up in back of him and Jamie jumped out. That testimony did not make Jamie very happy because it went against everything Jamie was preaching about Ofc. Howard not following protocol. So it is possible Matthew did stop there and after Jamie jumped out he pulled the SUV up into the parking space. Matthew was positive the police car was right behind him.

    We know it was just a information stop according to Ofc. Howard and have no reason to disbelieve him because his gun was not drawn.
    As Jamie stated had Ofc. Howard followed protocol this never would have happened. Right. He has a gun in the car and he just had someone bound in his trunk. Nothing was going to stop him that day from killing two officers. I was a little surprised they gave him LWOP.
