More upbeat public scrutiny. That they are here to hope that the justice is done we'll allow him a fair trial. The opportunity to have the facts he heard. I think the problem in the case like mess up to this point it's the fact that these. A motion of this case has been taken over and comments and advantage last outside. We are hoping it back at the trial progresses. As the evidence is put forth. And witnesses. Are heard. We will hear the other side of this story and the story that has been told up to this point has been very one sided. And I can promise you that there is it true that you have not reported on.
