I'm happy to report that the scene on the streets of Pensacola near the courthouse was fairly peaceful. The Hovindicators have not managed to have an army of boots on the ground. As a matter of fact, they have barely managed an over-strength squad. (In the Army table of organization that I learned in the sixties at Xavier High school, an infantry squad had ten men. Maybe its different now.)
Rudy Davis was of course at the scene.
I was glad to see the brown leather jacket that really helps carry on the Gus Grissom look. I'm trying to figure out if the guy in the robe around 0:20 is a holdover from Pensacon. Rudy was pretty calm but he did get a little excited as security became more active
Hovindicator in chief and Kent's consigliere, Ernie Land, was also present.
Ronald Brock, a previously unknown Hovindicator rounded out the interviews that Steven Gray was able to film pre-trial
In The Courtroom
According to the audio reports on LoneStar1776 bibles could be carried into the courtroom, but not opened, proving once again in the Hovindicaiton world view that Judge Margaret Casey Rodgers is altogether wicked. The Hovindicators also noted that the judge managed the jury selection and was particular in instructing the jury that it was their job to determine the facts and the judge's job to determine the law. Hovindicators who believe in jury nullification are disturbed by that notion.
Someone was hoping to file an amicus brief with exculpatory evidence, but was turned away. I'm sure Bob Baty will be disappointed in not having additional reading matter after he is done with Paul Hansen's motions.
I was surprised at how low the Hovindicator turnout was. I didn't expect thousands, but I thought it would run into the scores anyway. It appears that the jury selection is moving along at a pretty good clip. Maybe they are waiting for Jonathan Schwartz to get to Pensacola before doing anything exciting. We'll see.
