As reflected in the post-trial news article of May 18th, 1989, the prosecutors' Opening Statment to the Juropersons was premised on the flictiously declared "false make". The prosecutor knew also that to a moral certianty the "LARD'S" "false make" would be overwhelmingly impeached by the prospective testimonies assembled from the independent respectful experts (Mr Chuck Morton) and two other independently selected respectful law enforcement agencies' ballistic's experts (Mr Grady Goldman and Mr Lou Barry); which motivated the prosecutor to "backpadal" from the true realities of the evidnt corruption and, instead, hoodwink Jurors with the portrayal of the assembled three-way pre-arranged make, in the interest of finality...

Having primary knowledge about the charges and also about my own prior backgrond, inspired me to request the court for the approval of his appointment as my own private-defense investigator and to work as a teem together with Mr Jerry Feinburg (himself a retired Division Commander of the Hollywood Sector of the Los Angeles Police Department) had been appointed as the private-defense invstgator for my codefendent, Marshall L Bridges (aka Khumasi L Bridges; ak Khumasi L Pruett).
