I remember thirty (30) years ago representing one of four (4) desperadoes in an armed robbery case. My client and his buddies entered a neighborhood tavern, and stole the wallets from ten (10) patrons at shotgun point. The four (4) villains lived up the block and didn’t wear masks. Shrewd.
The police took detailed statements from all the patrons and bartenders (twelve  in all). I carefully read each statement, and to my amazement, it was like each eyewitness described a different armed robbery. The statements left you with the impression there were 12 different incidents.
What do you think is happening?
Studies show eyewitness testimony can be wildly inaccurate. People viewing the same incident, can see things very differently.
Here’s a great photograph of a parking ticket street scene unfolding below the window of one of our terrific friends, Norman (Thanks Norman!).
Take a moment and describe the NYC parking ticket scene. Let’s see if all our eyewitnesses see the same incident. What do you think the driver of the van is saying to the parking ticket warrior? Why was the van double parked in this neighborhood? Was he stopped temporarily to make a delivery?
