    What do y'all make of the Fields quote? What does it mean, it's a garage sale?

    Assuming it's verbatim, it rubs me the wrong way somehow because it sounds like it's a game. It sounds to me like Fields is saying Misty has had all kinds of junk out there for over a year now and no one was buying but now she's come up with more saleable junk and they're hoping some silly twit would buy it this time.

    What did he mean? I must have gotten him wrong because he's a defense attorney, and he wouldn't be implying that his client is a hopeless liar, would he?

    Sounds more like a Flea Market to me and not in a good way.

    First, this is an Art Harris quote and I don't see why Fields should confide anything to Art Harris. I'll believe it comes from Fields, when it does come from Fields.

    As far as what's at this 'garage sale' I'm not buying anything. LOL

    I think it's a figure of speech, like "Run it up the flag pole and see who salutes it." They are trying to see if they can get someone in LE to buy (believe) her stories.

    Good Morning WSer's!

    Quote by Att. Robert Fields;
    "It`s like a garage sale. We`ve put it all out there, and we`re just waiting for someone to buy it."

    My interpretation (my opinion only);
    "It's like a garage sale. We know the "product" (story) we're trying to sell is "faulty" (a lie) but who knows, someone just might buy it..."


    (Respectfully Snipped)

    "...he wouldn't be implying that his client is a hopeless liar, would he?"
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    That may not have been his intention but that's certainly how his statement came across to me Donjeta!

    JMHO ~

    One thing for sure it doesn't give me much hope that Misty is telling the truth if Misty's own lawyer describes her claims as a garage sale. I think she may have been implicated by Tommy and now Misty is covering her own butt and her lawyer wants to make all this sound like just another version of" he said she said". Except now, it's in Misty's best interest for this to look like just another story.

    Isn't Fields the guy that wouldn't talk for two weeks? Now all of a sudden he is talking and to who? Art Harris? ...I won't buy what Misty's selling until their is proof to back it up, and in my opinion this is her lawyer's way of spinning this mess into deeper confusion.

    Very odd comment for her lawyer to say; given the gravity of the whole situation. If Field's is fed up with Misty and who could blame him, but he needs to step away. Maybe he means she gave all the info. but it is not worth much because she doesn't know if it was Tommy or Joe, as she was under the covers? It certainly appears they are not buying what Misty is selling. I doubt the Prosecutor is going to believe anything any of them say without passing a poly and I hope what Hank said to Misty on Tape 1 or 2 is correct, Tommy has now passed. Hopefully, Field's will clarify his sound bite from last night.

    Or how about, "Let's throw it on the wall and see what sticks."

    Any one of these statements make it sound like they're just throwing random cr@p out there to see if anyone will think that ANYTHING is worthy of being the REAL TRUTH. It kind of seems like political double talk wrapped in children's lies.

    Let's just say for a second that she is/has told the truth about something (ANYTHING!), it makes one wonder if her Momma ever told her any bedtime stories. "The Boy who Cried Wolf" or maybe even "Chicken Little."

    Has Misty recanted ANY of the 436,569,783 stories she's told about that night yet? Has she EVER come out and said, I lied about saying "I just woke up and she was gone." or "I didn't do nothin' wit...TO that little girl."

    Not unless it is on a recording we haven't heard yet.

    Poor Haleigh. Won't anyone come forward so she can be put to rest!?

    I don't think he could have found a better analogy. The "pasta" theory is great but I think he has figured out that LE isn't hungry for any more of Misty's lies.

    It's pretty sad and very telling when the media and WebSleuthers don't jump on a story that Misty has finally told the truth and it's in the hands of LE.

    I think we're tired of the lies and we're tired of the same old stories that just don't hold water. Misty is still playing dangerous games and for some reason that song "Games People Play" is going through my head.

    And you don't give a da da da da da..."

    I took all of his comments to mean " we've put yet another statement from Misty out there for LE. (yep we actually "recorded it" this time) They're still not buying it a thing she says. So I'm going to tease the rubes about it here on TV in order to try and stir up a deal of some sort."

    It's yet another attempt to throw someone else under the bus. Nothing more, and certainly nothing that will lead to what happened to Hayleigh except in the most oblique read between the lines manner.

    "...if I was tellin' you the truth right now would you believe it? Games people play in the middle of the night... ."

    I think you just hit the nail on the head!

    Weird comment from an attorney. Also weird saying they've turned her statement over to LE and are waiting for a call back from them. Really? What is LE supposed to do with it now?
    "Please disregard lies #1-49. THIS is the real deal."
    Puhleeeeeze.

    ITA. In most garage sales, "one man's trash is another man's treasure". There's nothing of value in Misty's throwaways, absolutely nothing.

    I hope you're right AlmostGone - IMO Misty's att. should have stepped down along time ago! This may not be a popular view but IMO Misty's willingness to take TM's LDT/VSA without and/or against the advice of her counsel indicates (strongly) to me that Misty is easily led and/or pursauded by others and this is extremely dangerous in terms of her making a false confession - and yes, I believe that has already contributed to her giving/making alot of these false stories/statements - Mr. Field's has been ineffective in convincing his client to follow his professional legal advice, so what is he hanging around for? I won't answer my own question as I have some strong feelings/suspicions regarding this and expressing them could result in a T/O. Suffice it to say that I feel Mr. Fields should step down immediately. JMHO ~

    I've played the game Telephone before. One person says something, then it's changed a little to the next person.......Whenever it gets to AH, there's always a problem.

    just be careful where you step as there are "steaming piles" of MC stories and Toc stories laying around.

    :crazy:
