Gut Instinct

The trial of Brad Cooper is going on in Raleigh right now.

Brad Cooper is the husband of Nancy Cooper, a woman who was killed in 2008. She was found in an empty housing development, strangled. Brad Cooper stated that she had gone for a jog last time he saw her.

Almost immediately, Brad was accused of her murder. They were going to divorce; she was moving back to Canada; he had an affair; she had an affair: all reasons Brad had to kill her. What's missing is evidence.

Well, there seems to be evidence leading to the fact that Nancy _was_ jogging but right now, the prosecution is up-to-bat so we'll hear about the other stuff later.

In the meantime, here is the evidence the prosecution has...which will convince most of the people who DON'T PAY ATTENTION TO EVIDENCE AND INSTEAD, WANT TO THINK THEY KNOW BETTER THAN ANY PROFESSIONAL that Brad Cooper is guilty:

From our own WRAL news article from today's trial:

"I didn't have a relationship with him, and I didn't think there was anybody else who could have possibly killed Nancy," Damia Tabachow said Monday of her contact with Brad Cooper in the days following her friend's disappearance on July 12, 2008.

Duncan, who lived across the street, told jurors that at one point that afternoon, he saw Brad Cooper sitting alone on the front porch and went to talk with him.

"He was sitting there, holding his hands, looking forward. The conversation was not one in which he looked me in the eyes, and he kept repeating the same thing," Duncan said. "My personal opinion was that it was not natural, and I got the feeling that it was almost like a rehearsed statement."

"I knew Brad killed Nancy when I walked over and sat on the stoop with him. I knew it in my gut. I could tell he was not acting naturally," Duncan told Brad Cooper's attorney on cross-examination. "In my heart, I believe he had killed Nancy and he was trying to put on a show."

These are "witnesses" for the prosecution. They should be ashamed of themselves for putting these people up to testify this bull crap. It's not even circumstantial, for god's sakes! Just people speaking what they _think_ happened...almost what they _hope_ happened.

I am not quite stating that I believe Brad Cooper is 100% not guilty; I'll be paying attention to what is presented -- and the good stuff, the stuff that no one pays attention to because the media puts it between the lines, since it isn't sizzling enough to make a great story -- and determine, for my own mind, body and soul, whether I feel the man is guilty or not.

For now, and as it always should be, he is innocent until proven otherwise.
