Radley Balko Cory Maye case. From his site:on the
Hayne said that the bullet in Jones’ abdomen was traveling in a downward trajectory, implying that the gun that fired that bullet would had to have been fairly high off the ground. Since Maye says he was lying on the floor when the door flew open and Jones came into the bedroom, the prosecution zeroed in on the bullet’s trajectory through Jones’ body, and implied to the jury that Maye wasn’t cowering in fear on the floor, but laying in wait, standing up behind the bed (they didn’t quite have an explanation as to why a guy laying in wait would kill just one cop, and then surrender).
Put another way, we have a hole in the door frame at gut-level that’s clearly headed up. And we have a hole in a man a gut level that’s clearly headed down. The two bullets were fired within a fraction of a second. One of those two targets had to be in a position other than upright when Cory Maye fired his gun. Ask yourself, which of the two was more likely to have been crouched the night of the raid, Officer Jones, or the door frame?
If you’re wondering why Maye’s lawyer Rhonda Cooper didn’t bring this up at trial — well, so am I.
I’m becoming increasingly convinced of Maye’s absolute innocence in this case. Check out only shows one mention of Maye at this time — which came from this site.
