I guess I must be a cold blooded murderer because I posed for a picture where I smiled before going to my grandfather's funeral, you know exactly like he would have wanted. If anything it made me believe her innocence for far too long rather than objectively study the facts that prove she is 100% guilty.
I've been a juror 3 times. Two were traffic accidents, one was a serious sexual assault. We jurors took our responsibility very seriously. Regarding one fender-bender accident, the defendant obviously was in the wrong, making a U-turn on a highway with traffic coming at him. Yet we spoke at length about the nature of the road, weather conditions, defendant's state of mind at the time, etc. Trying to give him the benefit of the doubt. That's why I don't believe the jurors decided Darlie's guilt based on that video, rather it was decided on the overwhelming evidence of her guilt.

Also, instead of watching that video so many times to see how she wasn't grieving, maybe they wanted to watch it, looking to find evidence that she WAS grieving, looking to give her the benefit of the doubt, just as we did with the driver in the case I sat on.

Her husband's behaviour as recorded by EMTs and cops is EXTRAORDINARILY strange.

Welcome to the board.

This is an excellent point, and I believe one of the jurors did confirm this was the reason they watched that tape so many times.

I’m not sure whether she did it or not. I generally feel that she did and that her husband knows more and didn’t sleep through it. Part of me says it’s possible that she didn’t do it but the lack of another credible suspect leads back to her. I’d say 80% she did it and 20% maybe she didn’t and there’s someone out there that did. It’s tricky since it’s not a slam dunk that she did it, and it’s not a slam dunk that she didn’t.

I honestly can’t say she did or didn’t do it. She was found guilty in court, but for the WRONG reasons. Whoever was her lawyer did a BAD job in not getting the funeral tape thrown out as “prejudicial” and “irrelevant.” Does it “look” bad?? Yeah, but is it proof of guilt?? No!! Proof of guilt is hard evidence that can’t be explained away or denied.

It is highly unlikely she was convicted on the tape-sure it would have made her look even worse in front of a jury, but she was convicted on her story not matching the crime scene investigation findings, medical professionals testimony etc.

I agree with this. I’ve flopped around on this case over the years. She was definitely convicted in the court of public opinion based on the Dallas local media video tape. although I am not a lawyer, I do think the tape should not have been a manner of evidence in court.

Her lawyers chose to not introduce the tape of her "grieving" to offset the silly string video. There was a ton of evidence against her presented in court, the least of which was the silly string video. I have read her entire trial transcript. It's laughable at how bad her defense was.

Of course she did it. The fibers of the torn screen were found on a knife from their kitchen knife block. Guilty.
Has this dumb bitch been put to death yet?

Let's be honest here. She is guilty as hell. But she will get spared the death penalty despite this.

If she were to get an execution date it would be all over the media worldwide. You will hear about it for sure.

Seems like she’s been on death row for quite a while. What year did it all happen?

Interesting that you read the whole transcript. I remember a loooong time ago a juror saying the video had nothing to do with the verdict, it was all the evidence against her. And let's face it: All people act differently while grieving. Some are hysterical, some people are cool as ice.

I think Darlie is just where she needs to be. Not sure of Darrin's involvement, I tend to think no.
