CD of radio traffic admitted into evidence. Has certain relevant radio traffic. Luckily, it's not of nearly 3 hours of continuous traffic.
Thursday September 27, 2012 9:47 SNAndyHoag
9:47
And we're going to hear the audio of the radio checks.
Thursday September 27, 2012 9:47 SNAndyHoag
9:54
And that actually was the radio checks plus all the traffic around the time of finding Webb's body and the rest of the shift.

RT @nichol0715: @SNAndyHoag can you hear bluew do his call at 10 something does his voice sound different: windy panting etc?
Thursday September 27, 2012 9:56 SNAndyHoag
9:57
@nichol0715 He did sound like he was out of breath, but it's impossible to tell if it was just because his mouth was close to his mic.

9:57
O'Farrell on cross now, asking about Dispatch operating procedures.
Thursday September 27, 2012 9:57 SNAndyHoag
9:58
Nelson: If officer out of car or sound turned down, could miss radio check. Audio alarm also dependent on sound of radio.
Thursday September 27, 2012 9:58 SNAndyHoag
9:59
Devil's advocate here would be to say, well, he said he was on the "admin" channel, so the volume level is irrelevant. But ...
Thursday September 27, 2012 9:59 SNAndyHoag
10:01
O'Farrell could counter that by saying Bluew lied about being on "admin" and was just sleeping. Guilty of a lie but not murder, basically.
Thursday September 27, 2012 10:01 SNAndyHoag
10:03
@skaren24 @SNAndyHoag but weren't they able to triangulate his position at the time? He was in the area
Thursday September 27, 2012 10:03 skaren24
10:04
@skaren24 That I'm not sure of. If it's been mentioned in the past, I don't remember it.
Thursday September 27, 2012 10:04 SNAndyHoag
10:06
@skaren24 If it is mentioned later in the trial, I'll be sure to give you props :)
Thursday September 27, 2012 10:06 SNAndyHoag

Nelson: Lack of response to radio checks not a daily occurrence, "but it does happen."
Thursday September 27, 2012 10:07 SNAndyHoag
10:09
Nelson: Automatic vehicle locators added after June 10.

Nelson's summary of that day's activities admitted into evidence, at O'Farrell's request. Stroud "stipulated" to its admission, or ...
Thursday September 27, 2012 10:12 SNAndyHoag
10:13
... agreed without question to admitting it into evidence.

RT @nichol0715: @SNAndyHoag thinking out loud on why any cop would do that if the purpose is for checking their safety
Thursday September 27, 2012 10:13 SNAndyHoag
10:14
@nichol0715 If the officer wanted to sleep, as Patterson testified Bluew had done in the past, then there's one reason.
