Prosecution - " Mr. Glock, can you please take a second and tell us about your company"
Glock - "We have been the number one authority and experts on law enforcement sidearms for 25 years. We have been designing, manufacturing and supplying the nations law enforcement with the best firearms out there. For over 25 years we have been the number one firearm supplier in the law enforcement market. Currently over 65% of all law enforcement angencies in the United States uses our pistol. We have studied self defense shootings and are the experts when it comes to what is needed in a firearm to protect yourself in a life or death encounter etc............... (which abviously is true since 65% of our nations best trained experts in law enforcement use glocks).
Prosecution - "wow!, that is impressive.
Prosecution asks all kinds of questions to show the jury that this person and glock is the absolute authority in the nation when it comes to building and using pistols to protect themselves. Educates the jury on what the connector does. Lets cut to the chase.
Prosecution - What is Glocks policy with respect to the 3.5/4.5 connector etc................?
Glock - Glock NEVER allows any pistols that our law enforcement use to protect themselves to have the 3.5/4.5 connector. It simply is a very bad idea. The lower trigger weight causes the shooter to fire shots negligently etc.... Glock has always disclaimed to our civilian customers that they should NEVER use the 3.5/4.5 connector in any glock that is to be used for self defense.
Next the prosecution puts the NYPD expert on the stand.
The NYPD then tells a big story how they are the biggest police dept in the nation, have used glocks forever, have had many shootings, are the absolute experts in the field and why we would never use the 3.5/4.5 connector etc........
Then the prosecution tells the juror full of people who have never even shot a gun how YOU did everything wrong, how YOU didn't follow any of the disclaimers that the NATION'S experts told YOU to follow and that YOU killed someone negligently etc...........
Don't forget all the theatrics that go along with this. The actual law has very little to do with whether you get convicted or not. I have been a juror on several criminal trials and actual facts have very little to do with what lawyers say are facts when trying to convince the jury. It is one big dog and pony show full of a bunch of BS.
