If you cannot see what that prosecutor did to me as a manipulation of the English language, an assault on truthfulness, then you have no idea that lawyers are taught how to do that...to any good person they oppose.
Since these sleaze tactics are new to you, here is another one: During my deposition I stated that the traffic four feet to my left travels about 70mph in the 60mph zone. He asked how I knew that. I said "because it appears to be that speed when I am cycling there and I know from experience because I personally drive that road three times a week and witness it on my speedometer." And, his sleazebag response was: "Well, did you ever report it to the authorities?"
How many people that witness high speed traffic will report it to the police? How many people that witness traffic exceed the speed limit by 10mph will report it? Next to none! But, it's a way a sleazebag lawyer has been taught to discredit an honest witness, even when it is perfectly common that traffic will travel 10 miles over the speed limit.
