Expectations were high in the courtroom where the trial of James 'Whitey' Bulger is in its second day of jury deliberations. The appearance of US District Attorney Ortiz and several sidebar conversations with attorneys prompted a flurry of tweeted details from media covering the trial.

Jurors asked Judge Casper for clarification on procedures and details as they face the daunting task of parsing out what they may or may not find convincing in the case. A request for individual copies of the lengthy instructions on the law applied to this trial is another indicator that this jury isn't going to rush through the facts to get to a verdict.
