The whole trial was a spectacle really. I thought Johny Depp and Amber Heard's trial was the one that was making all the news, but when I was watching this Parkland Shooter's one, I kept asking so many questions.
# Are you allowed to say "you piece of shit" or shoot a middle finger or say "f*** you" in front of judge, media and people in attendance like that?? Americans can be running nasty mouth in public and in person but in the court room? Really? I get it that the parents whose children were killed, are angry and withholding so much grief and pain, but what kind of behavior was that? And talking about the judge, she sided with the victims without any hesitation. I felt like a news reporter showing emotions on live TV and not reporting the incidents as is. She just chose to move on easily while victims' families were hurling all those explicit content towards Nickolas.
# And then the defense attorneys getting reprimanded by the judge like the first graders! That was like the cherry on the cake! So they were saying they got targeted by the victims' family as the wrong doers for defending Nicholas Cruz and then some lack of judgement moment was captured on camera when two of them were laughing and showing middle finger to the camera while sitting with Nicholas as they did not know their actions were getting recorded. Now that particular attorney herself is facing trial for her disposition in the court room! Quite an irony! And how to forget the two attorneys getting into a verbal fight with the judge as they kept on saying why are the victims' parents bringing up their kids to the court to taunt them. The judge then had to sit them down screaming at them in front of everybody. Wow! How better can it get?
The judge, the defense attorneys, Nicholas Cruz and his sister then knowing about how Nickolas' family background was, it was like watching a movie full loaded with emotions but then watching how the whole thing ended in the court room and how people behaved, it made me ask so many questions, is this how the things are supposed to be?
For the parents of the kids who got killed, their emotions will always outweigh these all misdemeanor that happened in the court room during this trial. Listening to them was like going through sagas of some bitter realities of life. I have never heard so articulate and vivid way to explain your grief to others, they were all emotional. I hope they finally get the closure to this case. The wounds will stay there, but the healing can happen at its pace, I like to believe.
