One of the Bryan Stow beating defendants: not smart

A preliminary hearing is taking place this afternoon in order to determine if there is enough evidence to hold the defendants in the Bryan Stow beating over for trial.  I’m gonna go out on a limb and say, yeah, there’s enough evidence:

One of the men charged in a Dodger Stadium parking lot assault on San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow told his own mother that he was involved and expected to “go down” for the attack.

A videotape played Wednesday in a preliminary hearing showed Marvin Norwood talking to his mother by cellphone during an interview with police. In the conversation he said he had been arrested for the Dodger Stadium assault and had been involved. He also mentioned co-defendant Louie Sanchez as having been there.

He told his mother he was sorry.

Well, at least he’s sorry.

And yes, that’s an official sketch of Norwood, distributed by the AP and, apparently, the only “photo” of him available. Who would have thought that courtroom sketch artists would be in business longer than Kodak?

    It’s the courtroom sketch filter on instagram.

    Bullies aren’t known for their intelligence. That’s why they’re what they are. At least he’ll be with his own kind.

    Kodak went out of business? And I just bought 12 rolls of 135mm-36 exp. film for my AE-1 from them last week. If I had known, I would have gone modern, and bought Fuji….

      I dont think you are allowed to bring cameras into the court room

        Yep. It’s a “gateway” device. Once they start with little carry-on cameras, they eventually start rolling in movie cameras and klieg lights and broadcast reverse-angle replays of the courtroom action, with a couple commentators in the booth, one giving play by play and the other providing color, with an occasional guest lawyer or retired judge being interviewed, and commercials during witness changes. It all starts with those little cameras.
