Very good look at cross-exam of crime scene responders to NC police shooting

Another case right out of “Making A Murderer.” Most of this courtroom questioning is textbook but the reporter did a good job of presenting the gist of what the policeman’s (Slager) defense lawyer is trying to do.

This is a reverse of the norm because the police are on trial for an unjustified shooting. But the thread is common with all other criminal defense tactics. It’s partially a battle of ‘missed’ evidence (as in no fingerprint testing of the officer’s Taser) collection and a  strong supposition that the police first  statements about shooting someone (Scott) running away was not all too correct.

From Charlotte NC.
