K9 Officer Holds His Own Against Baez As They Discuss Dog’s Body Body Language

 

Jose Baez was trying to impeach the K 9 officer but he did not succeed. The K9 officer was forthright and held his own. He would not accept word twisting or having words put into his mouth. He  made that perfectly clear.

Questioning of the  blind and double blind studies of the dog’s behavior was quite comical at times. I loved the part when the issue of body language was discussed.

Jose said that  “at times the  dog Reads body language and then you read the dog’s body language and you and the dog have body language conversations.”  It’s obviously a one way  verbal conversation and a two way non verbal conversation.

I must admit that I was impressed that Jose brought up the importance of body language.

But then Jose appeared to be trying to put words in the officer;s mouth regarding  the double blind testing  as the officer stands up for himself and says that he  was just referring to  a specific time frame and insists the dog was trained double blindly.

 Jose feeling uncomfortable that the K9 officer gained some ground here, gives a tight ambivalent smile as he  tries to redeem himself  and gain control over the witness and then asks when was the last time the dog was double bind tested.

Regarding the testimony considering “false positives” I have to give Jose credit for trying but it was “no cigar.” When the officer said to Jose point blank “ I didn’t call it a false positive, you did,” he gained a lot of points and credibility, especially with a jury

As Jose continues to try to poke holes  in the K9 officer’s testimony, he and fails miserably because the officer is a very credible witness. He’s steady and calm and his body language indicates that he is being forthright. A jury would love him.  

The officer gave reasons as to why a dog would make a hit in an area. He openly answered that “ someone could have cut  their skin…, blood, tissue….  someone could  have laid  a  person on the ground.”

The fact that the K9 officer said “ someone could have laid a person on the ground” was very powerful as to why the dog made hit. Even though there was no body there to be found, the fact that a dog can make a hit if a body was merely placed on the ground is very interesting and significant information to a juror. It is also a very powerful mental visual for a jury . In light of that knowledge one indeed  wonders “when” Casey may have placed Caylee’s dead body on the ground.

Throughout his interviewing of the K9 officer, Jose appeared a bit nervous and easy. He didn’t seem secure in his questioning. Although he did  his best in terms of the questioning and tried to remain in control , his inexperience, insecurity,  and shakiness was evident. www.drlillianglass.com

    I think being calm and steady is easy when you are telling the truth.
    What must be super hard is what Mr. Baez is attempting to do…
    Trying to turn truth into lies and lies into truth, and when that fails, just trying to muddy up the waters and sweep stuff under the rug and all the while with an audience watching him. I think this work must be a lot like being a fiction writer. Anyone can try to write a novel but only a few of the many who attempt it are successful and that must be very stressful…and, in this case, it shows.
    (And they say a great novelist is one who is very familiar with the subject matter of which they write! It’s much easier and more accurate to write from the heart than from the imagination, I would think.)

  2. Wonder if a cadaver dog would “hit” on water. cleaning solution and decomposition fluids, ie., Cindy’s cleaning of the trunk. She could have conceivably thrown a bucket of water, etc., out in the backyard.

    • Fern, I have said this from the beginning. I, too, think CA poured the water from her shop vac onto the ground after cleaning the trunk.

  3. Fern, the bucket of water being thrown in the back yard doesn’t make sense, seeing the layout of the house. It was an attached garage with the washer and dryer in the garage I believe, why wouldn’t she just dump it in the washer tub. and why not in the driveway or gargage sewing drain? No one walks all the way to the backyard to empty a bucket of water when they are cleaning a car in the garage…doesn’t add up. why not dump it in the front yard grass…

    • if the water was smelly i can’t imagine her throwing it into a sewer in the garage to stink the garage up more.. and i don’t know anybody who would throw dirty water into a washing machine..jmo..

      i do think ca is all into looks… she is not going to mess up the curb appeal of her home and throw water into the front yard…. ga was obessed with the lawn.. so i don’t think it would have went over well with him either..

    • if the water was smelly i can’t imagine her throwing it into a sewer in the garage to stink the garage up more.. and i don’t know anybody who would throw dirty water into a washing machine..jmo.. i know i would kick a s s if i found dirty water in my washing machine…

      You do when there is death juices mixed in and you do not want your neighbors to see or smell it.

  4. Thank you, Dr. Glass, for continuing to cover this case. As sad as it is, you are keeping it very real for us. Caylee was a beautiful little child and deserved to be able to live out her life without the pain of being Casey’s daughter. Tragic, really.

  5. so you think Cindy took the time to dump water from a bucket/shop vac by the pool, inside Caylee’s playhouse and by the bamboo plants in the corner of the yard?

  6. Thank you, once again Dr. Glass for an accurate assessment on this brave detective and his K9…

    I was appalled at Jose Baez’ accussatory way of questioning this fine detective. His wanting this detective to be ruled an “adverse” witness, just blew my mind..
    If this is how Baez intends to behave in front of a jury, they will instantly abhor him and in turn, abhor his client. Baez is not a DP qualified attorney, he should not be arguing motions, unless his strategy is to give the prisoner an appeals reason for ineffective counsel..once she is convicted of the murder of precious Caylee Marie.
    Baez appears to not have experience, he is very unorganized with his questioning, he’s very confused on what a Frye Hearing is or how to effectively argue why this scientific method should not be used in a court of law.
    K9’s are a tool detectives use in many instances. They will alert on what their training consists of. Bombs, drugs, decomposed human bodies and are a positive, effective partner to this fine detective. The detective must learn to ‘read’ the K9s body language and interpet it, as they have been trained to do..
    Baez seems to intentionally confuse the officer but this officer was way too smart to fall for it. He also puts words in his mouth but don’t be fooled, this will hold up to the Frye elements and will come in. I feel as if Baez is shoveling chit againt the tide, for whatever he does, comes right back to him.
    I also feel, he takes it one question too many and it falls positive for the prosecution..Baez is way out of his league, IMO and he should have stepped away when the DP was placed against this prisoner. I also believe Baez is using this prisoner and her charges as a stepping stone to becoming DP qualifed and infamy…Only one problem Baez faces..anyone who saw his performance against this fine detective will run far away from his name and his firm. I wouldn’t hire him to fight a traffic ticket..
    I believe, he’s absurd, he’s arrogant, he’s unprepared and his smirking just drives me crazy…this will all go against him in the presence of jurors. He should look into a backup profession, for he may not be an attorney after this circus of a trial…as an officer of the court, this man has no integrity, no ethics and has no respect for the law or those fine officers who uphold the law in Florida…I do hope he is never in need of personal assistance from any LE officer in Florida state…JMHO

    Justice for Caylee

  7. i know i was cheering for this LE officer … it was painful to see how aweful jb is cross examining his witnesses… then lying (or trying to history change) minutes later on what the offer actually said.. omg.. a jury is not going to like him and its going to impact thier view of kc… jmo

  8. I like that the K9 trainer on insession stated that just because you smoke dope doesnt mean the dog will scent the dope that is gone, But it will still hit on the scent that it was present. just be3cause you cant see it, doesnt mean it isnt or wasnt there!!!!
