Healy - The Booking Room

11:46am. Kirkland Police Officer Vito Sparace is called back to the witness stand.

-Wittman asks about the black glove found in the back of his patrol vehicle.

-Sparace testifies that while Healy was in custody, he was asked by Healy to loosen his handcuffs.

-Wittman asks if other officers were observing when items connected to Healy ($1 bill, bloody tissue) were recovered by Sparace in the back seat of his patrol vehicle. "No."

-11:55am. On cross-examination, Hameline asks how long Healy sat in the back of his police vehicle. "Pretty close to an hour."

-After loosening the cuffs, Sparace observed "chewed up" knuckles on Healy, but cannot recall for certain if he was wearing a glove.

-Hameline's final question (sarcastically): "Mr. Sparace, did you really find that glove, or are you making this all up?" Sparace: "Oh no, I really found the glove."

Someone help me understand this - I don't understand Hamelines' last comment about the glove and making it up. Why would he ask that?

I'll jump in with an explainer so there's no confusion.

Hameline's question was sarcastic, in response to defense questions throughout the week that challenged the evidence-gathering abilities of local police officers.

I can't believe for a min. that any of the police officers would say anything made up, take the circumstances of that night, they have a crash, fleeing robbers & 1 of their being shot at, to look carefully at that second min to see if it's a glove or "rag-do" give me a break, what would we have done at that second?? "Crap our pants" I bet

Case and point - the defense has no defense. We can't bring Officer Corr back, but we can certainly expect that his killer spend the remainder of his years in prison. Hurray and Amen.

Thanks Andy, this was great. Can't wait till the Robert Ward trial. Be sure to blog that one as well! We want to see all three of them hang! Maybe the other two can get Rebecca to represent them, since she did such an outstanding job here - sending him directly to jail!!

Hope all your buddies in Philadelphia are reading this Johnny boy. Especially Cheryl Brown. Sorry Cheryl, but your man is going away for a very long time!!!
