My pleasure, Bigg. I should give a hat tip to Girlene who hepped, as they say in Dixie.
Red, that wasn’t much “hepping” on my part. You have put together a great summary of the whole witness list/case!
In reviewing this list, there really aren’t too many witnesses for the prosecution. Dela Cruz I guess is a prosecution witness, but I’m not sure how relevant his changing testimony was to Capt. Stone. I guess the prosecutors just wanted some headlines?
Witness after witness at Capt. Stone’s hearing indicate that noone saw a reason to investigate. It took a Times reporter to harrass Marine leadership with inane accusations like ‘4 men were herded into a closet and mowed down’ to get the ball rolling.
