<chuckle> And, how many times have we heard from police "the officer had to make a split-second decision"?
And, yet when it is a citizen defendant, suddenly the prosecutor is going to use slow-motion against the defendant?
I agree. Interesting aspect of human perception. Two thoughts.
1. Now that this study is out, defense attorneys can have the opportunity to reduce or nullify the effects on the jury.
2. Jurors should give more thought to what happens in those milliseconds.
Just for a fun demonstation, there are a couple fellas on YouTube who call themselves the SloMo Guys. Been doing it a few years. Tons of subscribers. A recent hyper-slow-mo video showed the propogation of fractures through glass, and compared it to how fast an eye blinks. Its worth looking at the video. The interesting (and relevant) point is to watch how much water hits Dan's eye before he even starts to blink.
