I bet that defense intends to try and make the Chief Ranger and expert witness when it comes to him testifying for them.
Maybe if on something else, based on investigative facts, but Judge already ruled he couldn't testify about the woman's reasonableness. He investigated the scene, not her mental.

I have caught bits and pieces of the trial. Mainly reporting on the AM radio. Why did the jury not get to hear the Texas Ranger say she acted reasonably? I haven't seen an explanation why that statement was not in front of the jury.
Did the Ranger witness the shooting? If not, that it's his opinion, not evidence.
If that were the precedent, then wouldn't Guyger be the only one the jury should be allowed to hear from?
No, expert witnesses will testify. The Ranger is law enforcement, but he is not an expert on the law. They have many, many code books and lawyers who are. As was stated, in his opinion, but opinions are not facts or expert.
