That's -- the Fox News contributor.
And he's coming to us via stream box -- great to have you here thank you so much.
Let's talk for a moment about some of the theatrics that we just saw in the courtroom but what did you make of the way that this latest witness.
Oh was answering questions.
Regarding the position of where George -- was straddle it -- having the attorney on the prosecution side.
A straddling that dummy and then on the act under cross examining and after.
After does courses are down and we saw.
Michael American in the same thing -- how do you think that was in terms of how it played to the jury today.
-- -- when you when you look at this witness he's got the experience of not only be -- -- -- Officer a defensive.
Type instructor but he's investigated officer involved shooting -- well as civilian on civilian shootings.
So what he's describing as is he's describing him from the best evidence of forensics.
All the raw.
And he's coming up with -- conclusion.
That mix bit everything fits in other words.
All the little different pieces of the puzzle fit into their appropriate place -- -- notes to the witness unbeknownst to the witness.
-- knows nothing about the forensics so.
He just comes on the back of doctor -- -- and just seals this for the defense that the prosecution.
Has yet -- bring an element of second degree murder and in this trial.
He felt he was a credible witness -- for the defense on this one absolutely.
-- what do you think about the way the questioning went and so far how this -- is holding up.
Under cross examination by the prosecution I couldn't agree with more.
Anymore one of the things you always wanted to do when human trial to show the -- wanting to listen to hear from them just try to conceptualize and visualize and on the wrong.
What more did on.
Redirect examination when he got on the floor when he straddled -- and -- -- what about this position where but here.
-- -- back up as the prosecution claimed might have happened.
Can would've happened that -- as well it was very compelling testimony is very.
In packs for the influential for the -- -- believe.
I'm very -- place some of that sounded as it happened in the courtroom just a few moments ago -- -- to sound cut number five to show.
Our audience what happened just a few moments ago.
As the attorneys were questioning this witness.
He was in the waste area in the are our power play.
My question -- wouldn't confess that.
Is -- -- and backing up.
-- -- -- We view it that angle.
Ninety degrees -- what's there about ninety degrees talking about.
So it's front to back nine degrees your stand there and your only gonna.
Already here at least 45 degrees where you are he's lying flat on the ground right Fred -- and a trip out.
It's right I'm Martin's back and I could not the defendant had shot at a ninety degree angle.
If traded on -- is backing up for a and you're saying it -- -- he's going -- back.
Anything's gonna Barack Obama he's backing up and I -- some apples and -- straight and back on the back after he could be issued and high degree angle.
I think I'm getting really lost them.
This ninety degree thing is really I don't wanna misinformed the jury -- my answer that.
Degrees was what you read it medical center that's correct in my interpretation was -- front to back like it was -- from lack of better word mantra I'm not a medical examiner -- my interpretation of the information provided.
Was that it would give -- -- front of facts for lack of -- terms like a level entry not an angled entry so.
As this he's on his transition.
And you're coming back.
If this comes back and we maintain that right if it's a struggle that's sport so -- ninety degree reference I -- be very clear that I'm not trying to say that.
The manner which are demonstrating visually right there with him raising his gun out you sit back I don't know how you can get a ninety degree entry.
If you're sitting straight back like this straight -- I was I from my perspective is on track -- that looks like you're more vertically upright and he's -- like that to a form mind.
Bryant did two point nine where you're straight up and he brings it got there -- these is that the dynamics of this wrong.
