7:14 am
>> theoretically the jurors should not know. they wrote a letter. it was on the front page of the "boston globe," not in the opinion section. there have been other victims who have supported life in prison. the jurors should not know about that. however, you have an interesting question here. the jurors won't won't make any difference to them that richard's parents did not testify in the penalty phase because they've heard from martin richards' father in the guilt phase. what is the defense to do? should the defense dare to ever call martin richards' parents in the penalty phase? i would never do it i think it's too cruel. but might they send an emissary like an investigator, to find out if in fact someone like the richards' family or other victims might testify for them. high-risk move. >> what are the chances of him taking the stand? he's indicate head doesn't mind if he gets the death penalty. >> well, looking at his writings in the boat he was certainly
7:15 am
looking for martyrdom, jealous, in fact, of his brother's martyrdom, dying in the cause. it has been said that life in prisonment is a far worse sentence for him and that therefore these jurors along with the globe poll that shows there are more people in favor of life that perhaps that is the best alternative. if he dares stake the stand over your objections he might just ask for deaths. the jurors could spite him and give him life. >> rickey klieman, thanks the funeral for freddie gray will take place in about an hour. the 25-year-old baltimore man died after stuffing a spine injury in police cus difficult his death sparked a week of protest. >> he's a photographer! he's press! he's a photographer! >> reporter: a photojournalist at the baltimore city paper says he was taken down by police officers as protests turned violent saturday. a police spokesman said it can be difficult to tell media apart from protesters.
