pages 21 through 30 (of 52) from the Sonoma County D.A. Report on Andy Lopez Shooting.
from JB Tucker, investigative journalist, are noted by the yellow
square, and are produced below the individual pages. Links to all
sections of the complete report at [link].
Note by JB for pg. 23:
Did anybody ask any questions about whether his perception of the weight of the gun entered into his opinions on whether the gun was real or not?
Note by JB for pg. 24:
Swinging an AK 47 is not consistent with it being real based upon the weight factor.
Note by JB for pg. 26:
Did they ask her whether it appeared from it's being kicked that it was light or heavy?
Note by JB for pg. 27:
That's an editorial that doesn't belong in the report except in an analysis section.
Note by JB for pg. 28:
Was he asked his perception of the weight of the gun based upon the way the deputy moved it with his foot.
Note by JB for pg. 29:
For them to editorialize like this they should have been tested to detect deception in investigative interviews and found competent. Were they tested? What were the results?
