Body language conveys a lot about a person. In fact most communication is done via body language some 65% I think. You're telling me that shouldnt play a factor into making a judgement about a person and whether they did or didn't do something? Also no need to resort to name calling why dont you come up with a better way of putting forward your argument as to why it wont work instead of name calling.
Of course not.
This is a legal fight, with serious consequences.
Basing it off of someone as trivial and emotionally based as body language is a bad thing to do because:
a) It's making snap judgements purely based on how they look, overlooking evidence. Seriously, this is actual important stuff - the jury certainly as hell shouldn't do this. They look at evidence and decide on that, since that's the only thing they can go on - you really cannot tell anything from people's body language. Just tell me how his body language conveys the obviousness in doubting his innocence.
b) It's thinking body language is an accurate indicator of precise emotions, truths, the thoughts from a person etc. when it really, really isn't. Even trying to believe that you can guess if someone is guilty whilst overlooking actual...anything, is stupid.
Or, I can put it in a different way - say a jury is comprised of people who do this. Hey, this guy's black, of course they're guilty! Hey, this guy's wearing blue, of course they're guilty! Hey, this guy has a nervous twitch, of course they're guilty! Hey, this guy is looking really nervous, of course they're guilty! Hey, this guy isn't looking anyone in the eye, of course they're guilty! Hey, it's another black person, of course they're guilty!
Do you really not see a problem with this? Like, at all?
Also, the name calling wasn't part of putting forward my argument, thank you very much, I ain't an ad hominem kind of guy. It was there because I honestly think you dumb, and the level at which I thought you dumb was so high I felt I needed to say that you dumb. Sorry if you feel insulted that I think you dumb, but I just think that anyone who has the opinion of "'I knew he was guilty as soon as he walked in the room! You can tell because he's _________!'" really hasn't done any thinking.
