Are you serious?

Are you being serious? Do you actually believe that Thomas Fitch was wickedly trying to hoodwink Wells Spicer by posing the questions you cited? I swear, sometimes I think you have lost your senses.

My Best,

Jeff Morey

    Gary "Tom, I'm not sure what your problem is with Fitch's questions. His job was to raise doubts about the prosecution's case by impugning the testimony of the prosecution's witness (and using some... more
    • "What kind of pistol?"Steve Gatto, Sat Aug 31 05:24
      Tom, One of my favorite examples of clairvoyance between Fitch (presumably it was Fitch asking the questions) and a witness occurs in Hatch's testimony when describing Doc's pistol: "Q. What... more
      • This can get a little complicated--Yes?Tom Gaumer, Sat Aug 31 12:27
        Howdy Steve With contradictory information it is hard to understand what was going on. The question of Doc's armament and how he used it is a tough one. Fitch would not give up on a story he found... more

      • Senses! I don't have no stinking senses!!Tom Gaumer, Sat Aug 31 13:22
        Jeff I think the lying Fitch was using is usually used in cases where a jury is present in hopes of poisoning the thinking of a least one to get a not guilty. Can also be used to undermine a witness... more
        • You outrage is outrageous!Jeff Morey, Tue Sep 3 08:51
          Tom, Your sense of moral indignation is histrionic. hyperbolic, excessive, extreme, over-the-top, exaggerated and woefully unconvincing. Fitch isn’t “lying”. He’s asking Ike Clanton questions. Does... more
          • our outrage at my outrage you perceive is funnyTom Gaumer, Wed Sep 4 04:50
            Jeff I'm not outraged just observant of ethics by sleazy and/or tricky lawyers. Obviously a lawyer’s questions and the answers are meant to influence the jury and/or the judge and now days the... more
            • You are just repeating yourself. (nm)Jeff Morey, Wed Sep 4 07:36
              • Jeff no testimony by the telegrapher or the gun clerk and ignoring anything else that might reflect on the questions. And we are both happy. Sounds good to me. Keep Laughing Tom
                • Incomplete casesBen Harleman, Wed Sep 4 21:30
                  Hi Tom, I've always regarded the cases as incomplete, due to the fact that both sides were probably keeping their powder dry in case they went to a full trial. I'm not applying this to any specific... more
                  • I think you are right and it makes dealingTom Gaumer, Wed Sep 4 21:57
                    HI Ben with some of these issues difficult to impossible as we just can't know everything about their positions and tactics about a possible trial. Keep Laughing Tom
