Opinion is Not Fact

Share

In the second week of the George Zimmerman trial last week Dr. Shiping Bao, the medical examiner for Trayvon Martin was called to the stand, and his testimony was utter magic. The defense team questioned Dr. Bao about a change in his opinion and this was his response, behold:

Based on another autopsy I did in our office. We have a case very similar to Trayvon Martin's case three weeks ago. First, I need to explain to you what is opinion. Opinion can be changed. That's why you asked jury to be open minded, to have open mind, right. Opinion there's no truth or force just right or wrong. If you have new information, you have new experience, if you read a new book, you will change your opinion. If someone never change opinion, you can call mentally retarded or you never learn, right.

Just wow.
