So, what do we do when witnesses tell diametrically opposed, compelling and emotional stories?
Please don’t tell me to shut up. But there was something we referred to once, called “the rule of law.”
The rule of law would have us consider corroborating evidence, or the lack of any corroborating statements, like the witnesses who say there was no party.
The rule of law is not about emotion and passion. It is about logic and reason.
