    confirms that the hoodie string was already extremely distended while TM was at the store.  View the video here, noting the string beginning about 15 seconds in.

      How do you define "extremely distended"? I don't know what video you watched, but the strings are relatively the same length in the 7/11 surveillance video. You can see that the strings are the same length at the :20 mark.

      •  The video I watched was at the link I provided. (0+ / 0-)

        In it, beginning at about the :15 mark, one can see both an extremely long string hanging from the right side of TM's hoodie, and a much shorter "string" with an object at the end, presumably his cellphone earpiece.

        It doesn't really matter now, the case is in the hands of the jury.  I await their decision.

        •  But the string is not extremely long (0+ / 0-)

          If you pause the video at the :17 mark, you can see the length of the string is pretty standard for a hoodie. If it was pulled all the way out, it would be past (or at) his waist, especially since he was leaning over. The picture the diarist presented shows what the string would look like if it was pulled all the way out.
          I do agree that it's pretty much a moot point, though.
