I dunno. Have no problem with him but he rubs a lot of people the wrong way for some reason.
Well he certainly isn't a troll. My guess is his main subject topic is religion and people don't like that thread being tugged at, add in the intellectual factor and I guess it pisses people off.
I figure most people on here don't care for me because I talk about politics and religion. I'm fine with the social consequences on a message board. But irl those topics will lose you friends and family in a heartbeat especially in the south where my views are definitely the minority.
So if the DA had not presented a witness that would testify that the cop was at fault (even if he thought/knew it was a lie)....you guys would not vilify him for it.
Idk, I need more information.
It certainly doesn't mean you put all those people up there that you know weren't there on the damn stand., making it murky as hell for the jurors. Jurors don't have the ability to look into people's testimonies. They just have to trust they aren't committing perjury and that the gov't is being responsible by putting credible witnesses on the stand. Interesting tid bit from the article this prosecutor isn't going to go after those who he know committed perjury.
Also, we know from video evidence there were people their on the scene at the time of the shooting that said it was the cops fault.
From what I have seen the DA thought it was a no win scenario. He knew he would be criticized/vilified no matter what so he brought everyone forward who claimed to be a witness.
You know if this "witness" was not considered there would be an outcry over that. No matter the outcome it was going to be controversial and lacking full resolution for many.
That's what the article says and it's a bs response. Sounds like a DA who didn't want to do his job properly and verify he was putting quality witnesses on the stand.
This was my concern when I was a juror. I wasn't confident I was getting the full story. Over the last few years I'm even more convinced that typically that's the case. Anyone listen to the Seriel podcast? Or former detective Jim Trainum's story on NPR? Cops and prosecutors often seem more interested in proving their theory than the truth. Ignoring evidence against their theory.
