A whole year later, the accused, who was allegedly caught red-handed with plenty of witnesses to her crime, has not even been indicted yet.  At last, a grand jury is going to convene:
A grand jury is expected to hear evidence in the next month or two on the charges...

also this:

"Court watchers have estimated it will take a year to three years for the case to go to trial."

In other words, Amy Bishop, not convicted of anything, could do four years behind bars before she gets her day in court.  This makes a mockery of the Constitution, where the sixth amendment guarantees a right to a speedy trial.

The real reason for this, of course, is that it may take that long to 'break' Amy, psychologically and spiritually, before she gives up and accepts a guilty plea. The first thing she needs to do is junk that shyster lawyer of hers.

Amy Bishop was due to begin trial on Sept 24.  Now, with just weeks to go after having plead not guilty for two and a half years, she has agreed to plead guilty, as I predicted. 226472261703
An ex-professor has pleaded guilty to fatally shooting three colleagues and wounding three others during a faculty meeting at the University of Alabama in Huntsville in 2010.
Amy Bishop, 47, pleaded guilty to one count of capital murder involving two or more people and three counts of attempted murder. She had earlier pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity
Prosecutors agreed to recommend a sentence of life without parole for the capital charge, and three life sentences for the attempted murder charges. Sentencing will be after arguments at a hearing on September 24 before Madison County Circuit Judge Alan Mann in Huntsville, Ala.  ...

Kip Kinkel of the Springfield, 0R shooting and Jared Loughner of the Tucson/Giffords shooting also suddenly pleaded guilty after waiting years to go to trial.  There is to be a hearing on the facts of the case on Sept 24.  I doubt they will address any of the anomalies addressed in the posts above.

It is clear that the proceeding this coming Monday, 28 April, will be nothing more than a show trial:
"Because many of the facts are agreed upon in advance by the two sides, (Huntsville Police Department investigator Charlie)Gray will be able to recount conversations he had with other witnesses, describe what the medical and physical evidence shows and outline the sequence of events. ...
Normally, objections about hearsay testimony by the defense prevent a witness summing up what somebody else saw or did, but the defense won't object to it in this case."

So it appears most of the actual eyewitnesses will be nowhere near this 'trial.'

"A jury will be selected, hear the evidence - including the fact that Bishop has pleaded guilty to the charges - and be asked to deliberate and reach a verdict. The attorneys on both sides will be careful in selecting the jury to avoid any chance of getting a rogue juror who holds up the process or discounts the admission of guilt. .."

Translation: they don't want anybody who actually wants to see some real evidence.

"Under the terms of the plea, the only available sentence will be life in prison without the possibility of parole, with no right of appeal."

And here I was thinking the right to appeal was a basic constitutional right.

Hm, is it funny to say that it doesn't matter?

There are always two sides to every story, and what we have not heard is Amy Bishop's side of the story, nor will we ever:
--Judge Mann asks Bishop if there is anything she would like to say. Roy Miller says he will speak for her....

Less than twenty four hours after being sentenced, she was moved to prison. Why the haste?
Department of Corrections officials said it typically takes 30 days for an inmate to transfer to a state prison. ...
On a side note, cameras and interviews with inmates are no longer allowed inside Alabama prisons.

Though of course Amy wasn't allowed to testify in her defense, in her own way she is trying to tell us what happened: c-061b-11e2-9eea-333857f6a7bd_story.html
A police investigator testified that Bishop initially denied having anything to do with the rampage. And during the trial, Bishop shook her head anytime the judge or prosecutors described the killings as intentional.
At the 'trial':
--“No doubt this defendant did it.” Bishop shakes her head and whispers a comment to her lawyer at this comment.
Broussard doesn't believe Bishop's mental illness led to the UAH shooting. He said that while Bishop expressed confusion about the shootings during the police interview, comparing it to being in the film "The Matrix..."

The Unanswered Questions of this Case:

--0f the 12 people in the conference room at the time of the shooting, three are dead, two were seriously injured and might not remember much, which leaves seven witnesses. 0nly one of these, a Professor Moriarity, has been publicly interviewed and has identified Bishop as the shooter. Where are the other interviews of survivors, and why haven't three of the unharmed witnesses even been identified?

--Why did Amy Bishop repeatedly say "It didn't happen. There's no way .... they are still alive" in the first interviews after her arrest? What did she mean by that?

--In the first hours after the shooting, the local newspapers website posted a photo of another person being led away in handcuffs from the scene. Who was this person, and why do commentators who did see this photo say it looked like a man wearing women's clothing? Why was he/she carrying 'shells' in her/his pockets? Where did they come from? What caliber were they? Did they smell like they had recently been fired? Were all the expended shells from the shooting recovered at the crime scene?

--Is there any of the ubiquitous video evidence that is everywhere nowadays that places her at the scene? None has been released.

--Was Gun Shot Residue evidence found on her hands? Were her fingerprints found on the weapon recovered? Did the recovered weapon smell like it had recently been fired? Can all the slugs and expended shell cases be traced back to the weapon allegedly used?

--What was the motive? They have implied that Amy Bishop was angry over being denied tenure, but officially speaking they did not posit any motive. What did Amy herself have to say?

--Since her arrest, Amy Bishop was never given the opportunity to tell her side of the story. Yet there are always two sides to any story. Why haven't we heard hers?

--Why does the only witness to testify publicly on what happened in that conference room continue to say that she heard the weapon 'click' after it jammed, when any person who's ever tried to clear a jam in a semi-automatic knows you can't move the trigger, much less make it go 'click?'

--After dropping her weapon and jacket into a bathroom, Bishop is alleged to have walked into a lab class and asked to borrow a cell phone from a colleague. Why is this person never identified, or ask if Bishop appeared nervous, excited, flushed, etc? Is it just coincidence that the person arrested carrying 'shells' was described as a lab student of Amy Bishop?
