    this witness testimony was so fascinating. I could listen to this person share their knowledge for hours (more than the hours I've already watched from this case). My grandmother used to tell me stories of what propaganda was used to influence people in world war 2. It is very interesting to see these same manipulation strategies my grandmother explained explained again by a professional that was not even alive back then.

    I agree with Ben Chew the jury and televised court cases is a must and the jury are so much more trustworthy than one judges opinion. Great lawyer

      @TheZacHenry this is the 2nd case with 2 more to come, so far both defaulted. Like I said earlier discovery is your evidence. Discovery is not there for you to use to look for your evidence.

    • TheZacHenry
      TheZacHenry 10 days ago +1

      @Another Dimension, one judge didn't decide to default in all 4 of Jones' lawsuits.
      Jones did that by not fully complying with discovery, for instance, the Google Analytics data that we KNOW they used and refused to share. Because of this, we can infer that he believes defaulting on all of these torts would be better for him both financially and criminally speaking than complying and attempting to defend himself in trial.

    • Another Dimension
      Another Dimension 15 days ago +1

      That one judge's opinion was to default this case, the judge demanded endless discovery which is not the way law works. Discovery has to be your evidence or you are just fishing for evidence.

    i dont like alex jones, but the plaintiffs and the judge are literally playing into his hands..... alex jones couldnt buy better publicity and on top of that they are giving him everything he needs to convince the majority of ppl that hes right. the default judgement is a good idea on paper, but now he can just say the trial was bogus.

    Aterhallsam 15 days ago +20

    It’s so misleading saying Alex was ordered to pay 50 million. No mainstream media mentions that there is a max limit to punitive damages in Texas, so he’ll only have to pay a little over 5,6 million. I’m not defending Alex, I just don’t like when they leave out key information to make it sound more sensational.

    • TheZacHenry
      TheZacHenry 10 days ago +2

      He very much was found liable for $50,000,000 worth of damages.
      And literally all of them have mentioned the punitive damages cap. The intent is to use this case to argue that they're unconstitutional (TX Supreme Court) and antiquated by today's standards. As a note, damages caps were only instituted after lobbying by heinously negligent corporations who didn't want to actually be held accountable for the cost in human lives, suffering, and property.

      Not that fake though is it, that is what a court of law ordered him to pay. The fact he won't pay it all has also been widely reported too when I've been watching. He did get a 50 million dollar message from Texas though buddy

    I would like to ask the lawyers on this panel if they think that Alex Jones is being tried legally and without malice? I can't imagine that anyone who knows the law and who has watched this trial, could ever say Alex is being tried justly. And I'm not sticking up for a personality. I'm actually seriously concerned for all American's. If this can happen to one American.. it will become practice.. upon all Americans.

    Theres a teacher at my school who I think Is related to Rottonbottom. Her name is Mrs. Finn, and she's SOOOO rude. She said my mom was "Hostile" she said .... your being very hostile ma'am is this your daughter. (There were only 2 of us i the room so duh...)
    Edit: but she was super mean, and a bully. This just happened yesterday. There was way more, but I can't write it all.

    • Valerie Calorie
      Valerie Calorie 13 days ago +1

      And she was overreacting. But her Son who used to be a girl, trans, was in my class last year, he was in grade 12 and I was in grade 10. It was a grade 10,11,12 split. So that's mabey why Miss, Finn is "hostile" herself because her son who used to be a daughter changed and she probably still never got over that.

    My dad was retired in mid 1970's, We were raising children, Dad bought a T.V. with CC, no longer blasted the house with high volume programs that he was interested in. Enter cable T.V., the O.J.Simpson trial, after the verdict, Dad no longer binge watched news pieces.. Those tabloid magazines with JonBenet covers lined the grocery store check out line.. Again tears.. Look 30 yrs later, we're sometimes captivated by pretend Hollyweird movie stars & blur the lines of real families. Where's our Guardian Angel🙏

    Two issues come forward at this point.
    The multi device plans
    And
    After skimming through some comments
    In this phase of the accountability,
    The jury sure does have to make it very clear, where the common factor is absolutely solidified.
    I’m now even more curious about the next half of the video.

    And right now there's a country rap RUclipsr with over 3 million subs who's doing the same exact thing as AJ but with the Kiely Rodni case. He's said she wasn't real and its all a scam to collect GoFund me money. He thinks he's above the law and he's too arrogant to see the loss AJ has taken for this exact thing. I'm just waiting to see how many lawsuits he faces. It's sick. How people can inflict such pain on others for profit is just sickening to me. My prediction is within the year we'll see RU follow AJ in the hot seat and he'll lose the empire he's built.

    To Ben Chew,
    My phone has several recordings of a long standing pattern of social events. I have many written notes to what I consider questioning circumstances of how the pattern fits. Your friend and client, may have sent a message to me about seeing me face to face. An individual can never be quite sure, after viewing video of some of his own struggles. I don’t have enough money to step into a firm that could fight this disruption. It continues each night and day. I am currently dealing with an undetermined health issue, all while navigating through this alone. 😓

    The narrator speaks too much and does not allow the guests to speak more of why they could say. Jumping to conclusion rather than objectively analyzing each party’s tactics and Ofcorse the judge’s handling. Just seems very bias not like how Law and Crime originally started. I do have to say though I like the Alex Jones coverage.

    I wonder how many people that are not as famous and wealthy as Alex that has had this happen to them.
    And if you think I'm wrong, imagine your boogey man right winger, evil nazi person suing you because you said something mean about meat eaters. Then you'd be at our side of the fence and see this situation for what it really is.

These kids will get Justice the shooter already said he's guilty we know this so let's go ahead and send it this boy to life in prison. And may these kids rest in peace God bless them all 🙏💔

    The emergence of social media started around 2005? Looks an entire era has been skipped. The early social media history emerged during the mid-1980s to the mid- to late-1990s. This era featured bulletin board systems (BBS), America Online (AOL), Compuserve, and Prodigy among others that were closed social media systems. Clint Watts jumped over this earlier pre-Internet social media era to the early 2000s.

    Ben Chew is a great guy personally, but the jury is NOT supposed to send the world a message as he stated. They ARE supposed to look at the facts of the case. To hear the people here saying how awful Alex is over and over shows the case has already been decided in thier minds before the evidence had played out in this case.

      @David Evans "Found guilty"?? not exactly..there was no hearing on the merits. Jones was not allowed to present a defense of any kind. The judge declared him guilty when persecution was ostensibly unhappy with the discovery even tho Jones produced every thing he had, which was tons of it...same for the Texas "trial",,,

      Incorrect. It's absolutely about sending a message. Punitive (punishing) damages are beyond actual damages and are huge to send a message. Point #2 also incorrect. Alex has already been found guilty, hence the "saying how awful he is". This trial is now only about how much damages will be awarded to the plaintiffs.

      @Tullochgorum yes he is guilty of having an opinion just like you have. Now I'm going to sue you because you hurt my feelings. THINK!

    I don't like what Alex claims, and I believe his claims are entirely false, and I do think he should be held accountable for that, however I think the takes from the panel at some points were not very good. Alex didn't pull the trigger. He just exacerbated the aftermath.
    It's not a whole lot better than pulling the trigger, but I think for clarity purposes it's best to not stray into that area. This case doesn't really need debating, it's pretty clear cut, but some statements/opinions from panel members here were not as clear cut.

      @handsoffmygun MF Unfortunately, you don't seem to know anything about the case.

      Unfortunately, the judge denied Jones his right to a jury trial and declared him guilty.

      The jury always is instructed NOT to view social media, news or pop culture shows that might mention the trial or the event(s) it is about, or to read newspapers or magazines, discuss the case with anyone, etc., that could disclose information (or misinformation in the case of InfoWars). How can you not know this??? It is a standard daily verbal instruction that judges give jurors every day in the USA, often more than once in a day.

    Law&Crime uses the same structure as CNN,FOX,MSNBC, so they can show small clips and create a narrative. I also think it’s very interesting that they would bring in Johnny Depps attorney to this situation…Trying to split a common group up are we???

  • handsoffmygun MF
    handsoffmygun MF 15 days ago +7

    First time in history that a person was given a default judgement that showed up for a trial. Whether you like Jones or not, this should concern you. This could set a precedent and a judge could do this to you someday and deny you your constitutional rights.

    • handsoffmygun MF
      handsoffmygun MF 12 days ago

      @Julie Crane No, I totally disagree with what Jones did to the parents, if he really did this. No matter what he did, everyone in America has a constitutional right to a jury trial if they show up to court like Jones did. If a jury decided he committed defamation against those parents, then I would think he got what he deserved. You leftists hate Alex for being a right winger and think it's okay to get him even if you have to do illegal things. It's gonna come back on you someday when judges do the same thing to you and find you guilty without a trial.

    • handsoffmygun MF
      handsoffmygun MF 12 days ago

      @Let's go swimming But what Jones did is called contempt of court. A default is when someone doesn't show up for trial.

    Ben Chu certainly argued well in Johnny's case however he do well to remember that what we're trying to do is establish what if any were the damages that the plaintiffs have suffered. These need to be Quantified there should be a consideration of any medical costs or reputational damages but I've heard none of that mostly it's a bunch of conjecture around the supposed danger and nothing to quantify this. This is absolutely been a miscarriage of Justice thus far.
    The fact that he thought there was no apology on behalf of Jones but he talked about the Texas trial shows how little he paid attention. Ben missed a heartfelt apology to the families and a previously aired segment that went out and I believe 2017 that expressed sorrow for the mistake. The fact that Ben could miss this and speak with such certainty betrays his ignorance and partiality.

    • Walter Bo
      Walter Bo 15 days ago +3

      He waited 5 years to be sorrow ?? From 2012 to 2017? While meantime, for 5 years, he lied and lied profiting millions of dollars out of it? And when he heard "we suing him" he had sorrow? Are you so cynical to let him off of his responsibilities?

    • Volcano Jones
      Volcano Jones 15 days ago +2

      And since those "apologies" he's ranted about how "I murdered the children!"
      One might suspect he's only apologetic that he's being held to account. He's certainly never issued a retraction.

    • prumbuggel
      prumbuggel 15 days ago +4

      You are talking about compensatory damages.
      There are also punitive damages. And they are there to deter and - well - PUNISH Alex for his conduct and have nothing to do with losses you can or should quantify.
      In Texas the plaintiffs got about 4 million in compensatory damages whereas 45 million were awarded in punitive damages.
      I am sure we will hear from experts further on in the trial. We are on day 6. This might be going on for another 2 1/2 weeks.
      There wasn't an apology. CERTAINLY not a heartfelt one. Or, to be more accurate: Maybe he did apologise, before slipping back into his default "this is staged or a hoax" BS.
      The suits were brought in 2018. That is about the time he became more careful about what he was saying. Until then he was saying one day that he didn't know what happened and the next that it was a hoax.
      Maybe you can point me into the direction of this 2017 broadcast with these expressions of sorrow for the mistake ?

    Don't ever question anything guys, go to sleep, nothing to see here. I just want to thank Alex for educating me regarding so many issues. The fact these people pretend to not know who the globalists are, and the aim of globalisation is pathetic. It's so sad to see America is having show trials now.

    This trial is preposterous. Not because of Jones making false or inaccurate claims. It's obvious he was wrong. But, that a lawsuit can occur which is basically against free speech. Defamation seems to be something that damages a reputation. This seems like an opinion that was wrong. If these cases continue, no one can state an opinion...

    Alex does not owe these people anything. This is silly. Just because someone says something you don't like does not mean you get money.

      There is a difference in purposefully telling lies to harm and disagreeing having an opinion and talking about it. In the 23 min of 'evidence' they have from the thousands of hours of shows I have seen no purposeful harm. If you think people should be punished for their speech, look out because you will eventually be punished for yours.

    This case is going to lead the bad things in America I fear, because Alex Jones is a very iconic figure. Although he talks a lot of nonsense He is an embodiment of something utterly American and free. Now he's basically the perfect martyr.

    This is nothing more than shutting down Alex Jones first then the rest of us next.

      He didn’t try the case. It would have cost him more money to fight it. The max penalty is $5.6 million.
