Subject: [mindcontrol101] Re: Jodi Arius murder trial
it seems that Jodi Arias has everyone’s attention. She may not get the death penalty…I wonder how much people has put money on it…

> Having watched more than a few trials, it is funny to observe the demeanor and style of prosecutors and how similar many of them are. Most of them come off as annoying jackasses. This is on purpose. Their behavior is specifically geared into getting people to have emotional reactions under cross examination. Emotions are a line to and from the subconcious, and when people are emotional, their inner thoughts tend to come out. Prosecutors specifically work to get people emotional to increase the chances of a “Perry Mason,” moment. So while it might seem that the prosecutor is becoming slightly unhinged or befuddled, it is for a purpose. In fact, the prosecutor pays no penalty for grating on anyone’s nerves because he is not the one on trail. It is common to have a collegue handle the friendly witnesses so that it becomes a variation of the “good cop/bad cop” ploy and thence the aggressive prosecutor doesn’t completely alienate the jury from > considering the state’s case.
> One way to prepare people for cross examination–especially if they are the one on trail–is to use the drill sargeant approach during testimony rehearsal. A member of the defense team pretends to be the prosecutor and gets as personal and as nasty as possible–far beyond what an actual prosecutor will do. When you prepare people by rehearsing the worst case scenario, the stress of the actual situation will seem light by comparison. >
