Court Watch July 20th (Connie Champagne)

Today, ADA Chris Lamiero continued his cross examination of Jason Cazares.

Cazares has stated that he didn't know gender was an issue for his "brother" Jose Merel, that he thought Merel was "joking around." Cazares claimed he didn't hear anyone except Nicole Brown shouting; however, other witnesses testified that Brown, Merel, and perhaps others were shouting; he claimed Jaron Nabors was a"tag-a-long" and an "exagerator"--yet Cazares stated that he definitely believed Nabors, when according to his own testimony, Nabors came in from the garage, "looking scared" and told them "She's (Lida/Gwen) dead." Cazares testified that Jaron Nabors exagerates things, that Nabors is a "fake"--yet Cazares testified he believed Nabors without any question when he told them that Lida was dead.

By his own admission, Cazares never checked Gwen, never took her pulse, never called police or ambulence, never took any action to revive Gwen, and never asked his buddies what happened--nothing.

This afternoon, from 1:30 PM until 4 PM today, when incriminating questions were asked-- at least 7 times he claimed he was too drunk to remember, 14 times he repeated the question back to Lamiero (as he did several times during his initial video-taped police interview which we saw early in the trial--"How did you feel?"--"How did I feel? Well..."), and over 50 times he stated "I don't know" or "I don't remember."

He did testify that when he and Nabors were in truck on their way to his house, that they did see Paul in Nicole's car, and said to them: "We're going to get shovels cos they killed her."

He denied repeatedly--despite so much testimony to the contrary--that gender was an issue--that he was aware of, that he thought they were just "joking around."

Lamiero did an excellent job, trying to get to the truth.

He closed with the question:
"And while Lida was being murdered inside (the house) you didn't hear anything?"
"No."
"While Lida was being killed, you just stood outside and smoked a cigarette?"
"Yes."
"Just enjoying a beautiful Newark evening you just--"
Serra: "Objection--argumenative!"
Judge: "Sustained."

At 3:30 PM, Jose Merel's attorney William Dubois was next to question Cazares.

Dubois may become an unlikely ally to the prosecution.

Dubois: "(So) what do you think Jose seemed to have a problem with?"
Cazares: "Lida."
Dubois: "Lida's what?"
Cazares: "Gender, I guess."
Dubois: "So, from the very beginning of that evening, you were aware that gender was an issue for Jose, one of your very closest friends, your brother...?"
Cazares: "Yes."

By 4 PM, Dubois had managed to get to the root of the matter.

If gender was no big deal, as Cazares claimed--why is Gwen Araujo dead?

"Just be sure your "gender non-conforming" kid let's her partner(s) know she has a dick before things go too far."<<<<<

If that is such a big deal for some of you men, then you shall be the one doing the questioning and taking resposibility for your actions.

Since for some morons, being transgendered seems to hold the same stigma as a walking HIV virus, then, as with STDs, you must be the one making sure you don't get involve with one. Just like you know there are STDs out there, it is well known as well that there a beautiful post- and pre-operative transsexual women. Now, don't get me wrong, I am not comparing transsexuals with STD's, but for so many bigots out there there's no difference.

Also many foolish guys think that trans people are out there to "fool" them, give me a break!
Who's going to put up with all that crap trans people go through, just to "fool" some guy. What a ridiculous ego-maniatic notion!
FACT IS, people fool themselves when they assume that every phenotypical female, is aso biological. Nature's more complex than that!

Disaster is likely to wreak havoc in the life of an individual as soon as he becomes victim to erectile dysfunction and the most significant dreadful consequence of erectile dysfunction is that the afflicted man becomes incapable of facilitating erections required for sexual intercourse. The sexual vacuum resulted from erectile dysfunction prompts the sufferer to opt for anti-impotency pills, most especially the viagra medication that was approved by FDA (Food and Drugs Administration) as a clinically effective drug to cure erectile dysfunction in men. Viagra is meant to be administered by patients only after availing of viagra prescription from the doctor. The prescription for Viagra provided by the doctor spells out that the patient suffering from erectile dysfunction seriously need Viagra to treat his disorder and further authorizes the patient to avail of Viagra from the pharmacist.
