Another techno-fail by Zimmerman case investigators?

In John W6’s long interview with Investigator Batchelor on March 20, he states that his porch light was on, but that it only illuminates his patio as it is encased in a glass globe. As such, he was unable to clearly see what was happening closer to the sidewalk, where he says  Zimmerman and Martin were struggling.

Now, if it was me interviewing this guy, I wouldn’t just take his word for it. I’d go out on the porch, take the globe off the fixture, and check the wattage of the lamp (‘lamp’ is professional lighting talk for what regular people call a ‘bulb’, and ‘instrument’ is  professional lighting talk for what regular people call a ‘lamp’). Then I’d come back after dark, make sure the same lamp and globe fixture are in place, and actually check the illumination at various distances, both by naked eye and with an incident light meter.

And, then, I’d also double check with the number of other witnesses who appear to have reported that John’s porch light was NOT on during the struggle…

    Totally unrelated and completely off-topic, but has anyone taken all of the 911 calls and aligned them chronologically and run them through a multi-track mixer to see if re-enforcement and cancellation bring out anything interesting?

    I’m about one recording studio short of having the equipment to do it myself.

      Only W11’s call has any significant audio info prior to the gunshot. There has to be a bit on W3s raw call, but it’s redacted in the released versions. All the call made after the shot are from people who have withdrawn into the interiors of their homes, except for The Teacher. But even she is behind a closed window for some of it. She’s the only 911 caller who hears and reports on the post gunshot activity and Zimmerman’s surrender as events happen, so even if there was trace background audio in her call, i don’t know what you could compare it to.
