    There are alot of factors to consider when one considers to release information to the general public and not all of those factors have anything to do with LE. When it comes to a jury selection in Bakersfield there is over 380,000 people to choose from not really concerned about this at all.

    I'm pretty sure this has nothing to do with any of our cases.

    When you were talking about James in the fiat sitting up so high due to his height, what were you trying to tell us?

    If your head is nearly touching the roof of a small compact vehicle what would be the next logical step to provide yourself comfort while driving...

    It's been stated that SB owed James money. I've wondered if SB payed him with a check and that account had insufficient funds?

    It would be so helpful if you would provide links to the photos. Is that possible?

    I'm just bringing this back around because it was a good refresher. The post this was addressing had to do with Ryan having funneled money and SB owing James money.

    (I'm still searching for the pics of the Fiat and the posts from around the time they were posted)

    I do believe there is one in the first thread regarding the Fiat.

    This is the only picture I have of the fiat. I do not know if there are other pictures available.

    If those three bullet holes (that's all I can see in that pic) were the only shots fired, I can't imagine how one of them hit him in the lower back - since he was reclined - unless it came from an upward angle, as if the shooter was lying on the ground. (and lying in wait?)

    After hearing that podcast the other day, though - when they said that James had his own "boys" in the car with him, I started to wonder if the shooter was aiming for someone else, thinking that person was in the car with James.

    (I know that B3 said they've never been aware of that info, though)

    I guess I’d have the seat somewhat reclined but my body leaning over toward the passenger side on an angle, arm kinda supporting my weight on the arm rest.

    True. Leaning on the console, maybe. Great point.

    That podcasts didn't consult us or any other subject matter experts. They basically were going off what they heard in the media or what they found on the internet. James was the only person in the vehicle he was driving.

    The only blood that was found in the vehicle was found on the inside passenger door. James couldn't exit from his door do to airbags being deployed. If that seat wasn't in a different position perhaps there might of been a different outcome. All shots that were fired were not to the the upper body but to the lower body. Now you wonder how far away was the shooter and what angle were the shots fired? Where was the shooter when they fire the shots in a car, on the street, lying in a yard? These are the questions you have to ask yourself.
