Cnn's mark geragos and sonny hostin show inexplicable skepticism toward's prosecution's case
On June 26th the police arrested Justin Harris for the murder of his child Cooper. They released a statement that Detectives have obtained both Physical evidence and Testimonial evidence that a serious crime was committed. They mentioned that he went out to visit the car a few hours after leaving his son in it to throw something in it, as seen on surviellance cameras. He simply shut the door and walked back to his job at Home Depot. At 4:15 he went back to his car and simply drove off within seconds. There had also been reports that his work computer had online searches for 'how
long does it take for an animal to die in a hot car'.It later turned out that he did a search on what temperature it would take to kill a small child. There statement also suggested that they had much more evidence that they haven't yet revealed.
Throughout there appearances Geragos and Hostin relentlessly talked about how accidents like this happen all the time and barely even mentioned the online searches. They go on to cite all these statistics about 40 deaths a year and how 25% of all parents with a three year old have admitted to accidentally leaving their child in a hot car. I personally find this difficult to believe. With regard to the searches they say it could have been links, pop-ups, or maybe someone else used his computer. What are the realisitic chances of that happening. Your work buddy happens to do a search on what temperature it takes to kill a small child just prior to you accidentally kill your child by leaving hime in a hot car. Sonny Hostin is so brain dead that she tried to compare this to her own situation saying that she did internet searches about children drowning when she was taking her child to a lot of pool parties. Suggesting that if her child then died in a drowning accident she could be charged with murder. Of course people could do seaches on children drowning in pools for safety reasons. There are no reasons I could think of as to why someone would do a searh to discover what temperature it would take for a child to die in a hot car.
Mark Geragos goes on to suggest that the evidence really isn't that strong but the case won't get thrown out because judges never throw these cases out.
A third guest addressed the issue of why Harris didn't notice the horrible smell in the car either when he visited the car around 1pm or when he first left around 4:15. He seemed to have a lot more sense and expressed that he believed the prosecution had a very strong case. But Geragos and Hostin never addressed that issue.
Today hard evidence was presented at a hearing featuring the testimony of a police detective.
-There was a terrible odor coming from the car according to two police detectives. One arriving one hour after Justin got his son out of the car, and the other arriving an hour after that.
