Just watching her -- parents came in you know -- quick turnaround when she ultimately -- -- think it was hundred meter backstroke last night.
I -- it reminded me why in this is an important thing you know -- -- to think about like -- spanning all this money on these gains on the problems we have in this world.
Is as we wanna be dealing but you know it's important to get back and sees some of the spirit of competition -- his other healthy positive things and she -- speaks to -- me.

-- slow -- measured in coordination.
And I guess I don't quite understand how this is gonna work but it.
And they're gonna try to and a dose of defense attorneys are gonna trotted.
Claimant insanity defense sources I've been decided -- nor what do you think.
I don't think anything's been decided but I mean really where else can they go it's certainly not going to be a whodunit you know this is a guy who they can -- say was stockpiling this ammunition in these assault weapons for four months he was caught in the movie theater he booby trapped his apartment I mean -- -- lawyers ever going into into court and say.
It's not him so if they have to give to that which they will that it was him who.
You know was responsible for that.
-- nor the word for but the carnage you know that he left behind there then why did he do it so.
The best guest of really all experts here in just all people even just watch is going to talk about his sanity.
And you know a lot of people went we have been hearing this on the street name people that I talk to the Catholic of course that guy's crazy if -- -- -- something like this.
But as a prosecutor -- out.
I'm saying that is not necessarily so it's extremely high burden.
Because to be insane legally you have to not be able to differentiate from right and wrong and even most people that have serious psychological problems.
Issues they know right from wrong and this guy his party were starting to see some of the pieces that he absolutely.
That what he was doing was wrong but that's still obviously going.
So eager prosecutor and those carriers and you've ever prosecuted -- similar -- sort.
No I've never fortunately I will say here now I have never had a case like this you know I was reading the complaint last night and -- it's incredible and Indian amount of -- here's a 142 counts and I was just reading.
Each count of murder and just going through and reading the names of each person on each charge just brought back to me that you know forget the evidence forget that.
You know the defense is here at each one of these.
People that idea they or person they have a story they have family -- in a product back to -- when I was reading that.
Today so although I've never -- -- you know we've all seen these things and it's just you know murder and death on a much larger scale.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Does your what -- thank you wouldn't be a portion of social slam doctor emergent.
There's no such thing I don't think is a prosecutors a slam dunk and sometimes I think if you start to get into that you're going to be your own worst enemy it's really always going to be up to a jury or to a judge tells at the end of the day what happens so you know I think you have to stand your toes and make sure you.
Dot terrorizing cross -- t.'s isn't -- and help the prosecutors here will do.
So you know gap mean we don't know -- what the doctors are going to say about his mental make up it's a very high.
-- and to say that he was insane but I can imagine they would go any other way.
It's a cordial -- are talking with the sort of gloves they parachuted from the Kent County district attorney's office.
Homicide division ally are gonna -- this job.
Why -- then their almost seventeen years now and detailing job and wanted to do so unless something comes to change that path come there for the long haul I think it it just -- -- So did you decide the -- collared shirt and does happen.
Well I think I knew I want to go to law school at a college being a prosecutors and as always interesting to me and then once I was in -- collisions the criminal locked classes that interested me and -- and you for me the defense is not going to be an option I didn't want to be that person I think it's important thing and night.
And always very respectful that people that do it and do well.
But for me to go home and sleep at -- to feel good every day going into court I want to be the one who is trying to.
Prosecute the people that committed these crimes that have committed you know hurt to so many so many people and violent crimes are -- in my interest.
So has been an action fascinating.
Argument to me about but I'll talk to other auditors about it.
Prosecutors and defense attorneys.
And that is -- like I was looking at the woman.
Who was sitting next to.
Although -- directors should and his people in Colorado.
-- -- -- electronic obviously.
But minister could not possibly one of dissent terror -- -- -- think of -- maybe should never.
You know one of the best things I -- getting ready for my job was -- intern with the legal aid society and they are public defenders because I could not.
For the life of me imagine how anyone could do that job but you know I worked for some great people on they really kind of showed me that look you know whether these people did or not and the large majority of their clients were guilty.
I believe and I think they believe that is wildly nice still have to protect their rights and make sure the system works and that.
-- things are done above board so.
I understand that I get it and while I absolutely wouldn't -- -- be that woman who's sitting there next you know James -- defending him I guess that's why I'm not the person doing that job but she.
You know I have to believe that she.
Wants to be there to make sure that his rights are upheld and that things are done correctly and -- shall fight for him and do the job that really she is supposed to do because and I think that's the way we all want.
This to -- me as a prosecutor.
I want the mauling jealousy committed these crimes but I also want them make sure it's the right people number one and that things are done the way they should be.
