    If not for the movie, would this have been done? I don't really have an opinion here, just curious on what others think:

    Yeah, I think the tapes would've been played even if the movie was not scheduled to be released (April 28).

    It'll give insight to what the final moments of the victims were like, which is what sentencing hearings are intended for.

    Sure, it will. I am a bit mixed on this. The prosecution proved their case with facts. But, to now inject the Jury with human emotions on tape that the effect of can not be refuted by the defense, in an attempt to achieve a death sentence is uncomfortable for me.

    I mean, for me, it moves out of the legal realm, it's like a trial after the trial. Death has always been on the table, no? Why pump it after the verdict, is that right? Why not play the tape durning trial? I do not think I like this.

    Anyone understand what I’m saying? Abbey?
