The verdict speaks for itself. Everyone has taken these small bits and pieces of what they read in a biased article and think that it's fact. The fact is he is guilty of murder!!!!
from earlier photos it didn't look like anyone was hit with 'brass knuckles' and like someone said earlier one hit and you're down
Granted, it was a huge error to not have turned over all of the evidence, accidental or not. That being said, however, I don't know too many people that can take a shot from a pair of brass knuckles and get back up...much less not have any scars or marks showing where he was hit with them.
I say BOTH!! What a convenient way for the DAs to sidestep their duty to provide all exculpatory evidence to the defense: "Gee, your honor--we were unaware of its existence...sorry."
Please do not interpret my comments as being callous to the fact that a young men is dead. I offer my sincere condolences to the Ponton family for the loss of their loved one.
However, it is the District Attorney's statutory DUTY is to seek the truth, not to secure a "win". If we allow him to forget that, we're all in trouble.
Wait a minute...EVIDENCE (a photo) of brass knucks that may have been used by the deceased, which could have been favorable to the defense of the man on trial was not provided to anyone until Friday morning??????
The deputy calls it an "oversight"???
Isn't this the scenario that is playing out in Georgetown with the DA and the police right now, according to a couple of the VA's recent news stories?
Who's playing "hide the weinie" here, the Sheriff's Office or the District Attorney...or BOTH???
