Let's talk Bob Allen this morning, 'cause it's the latest vaudeville act on Florida's east coast.
After a extensive defense session on what constitutes a male "come hither" look (apparently an intense stare mano a mano), a spectral newspaper blog post blogrolled the trial into an allegation of juror misconduct.
A person dubbed "Jovial Flower" posted an item just before 11 a.m. Wednesday about a friend on the jury and wrote that the six-member panel had already determined Allen was guilty.
Jovial Flower wrote, "from what I could get out of her he sounds like he is done for before it even starts."
The judge questioned the jurors behind closed doors and convinced that not one was masquerading as Jovial Flower, resumed the trial.
How quick can you say appeal on account of blogging?
Overheard in Brevard County.....
Allen attorney Greg Eisenmenger questioned how Jackson knew Allen was hitting on them.
"What was significant about someone looking at you?" Eisenmenger asked.
"From a men's restroom? There's something strange about it," Jackson said.
Jackson said he knew from a previous experience that men will look or stare at someone if they are trying to hit on them.
Eisenmenger replied, "Officer Jackson, I've been looking at you the entire time. Do you think I'm hitting on you?"
"I don't know. Have you?" Jackson said, triggering laughter among the spectators.
Eisenmenger also argued that Jackson and Jordan would not have been able to see into the restroom "unless the laws of physics don't work in Titusville the same way they do in the rest of the world."
The bench they were sitting was on 82 feet away, and a small palm tree, a part of a monument and a post obscured the view depending on where one sat on the bench, according to photos, a video and a diagram presented by the defense.
Jackson said he not only saw Allen, but was able to hear both running water and Kavanaugh's attempt to get paper towels from a dispenser.
Ya gotta love it.
