Transcription provided below: 

34:58

Let me tell you about some information that I have. The information that I have is that you were involved. OK? Now let me explain. Your level of involvement can be very minimal. All right? But the information I have received in the last two and a half years, and I have worked that case from start until now, I’ve been in it every step of the way. The information that I have is that you were there, and, just hear me out. Just hear me out, because I need to hear the story other than people painting you as a monster.

 

37:20

Getting back to the barbershop, OK, the information that I got is that you have some involvement. And I want to hear your side of the story. OK? Hold on, hear me out. Because before you leave here tonight, you may have warrants on you.

 

For what?

 

For the one responsible for that crime. Now, now, hold on. That’s why I am giving you the opportunity to talk to me.

 

Sir, I will take a polygraph or whatever you want me to take, I was not near that.

 

Well, that’s down the road.

 

I was not near there, sir.

 

I’ve got information that puts you there at the time this happened.

 

Sir, I was not near there.

 

Hold on, hold on. Hear me out, just hear me out.

 

This is crazy.

 

You know what happened.

 

No, I do not.

 

You live in the area. You’ve heard numerous stories. I’m sure you’ve seen the news.

 

Sir.

 

Hold on, and I can’t give you details. OK. But you’ve seen the news. You’ve heard things. All right?

 

No.

 

And I think, I don’t know, and I can’t put words in your mouth, that’s not what I am here to do, all right? But I think some things may be able to be explained. Now I can’t put words in your mouth, all right? But I think, but, but I think, I think with the time and the understanding things have happened that can be explained.

41:08

Let me explain something to you. I can put you there at the time it happened.

How? I was not …

I’ve go, I’ve got, I’ve got witnesses.

No, you can’t have witnesses, sir, I wasn’t there. Y’all trying to trick me up for something I didn’t do.

 

Mitchell: We’re not tricking you.

 

Ms. Mitchell, I promise you I do not know anything about that murder. I do not know anything about that murder. I can call whoever you want.

 

This is your chance to explain what happened.

 

I don’t know anything. I don’t know anything.

 

43:38

We don’t have a list of lawyers that we pick from. Even if we did, we’re not bringing a lawyer down here now.

Understood.

OK?

Understood.

You’ll get appointed a lawyer when you go for an arraignment in the morning for the murder charge.

Oh my God! You are going to charge me with murder and I didn’t even do nothing!

Now I can’t ask you any more questions. You’ve already asked for a lawyer.

You can ask me questions all you want. Sir! I did not do that. I did not do that, man.

 

44:23

I did not do anything.

You were there.

No, I was not. I was not there.

You’re either a cold-blooded murderer.

No. No. No.

Or …

No sir.

Or, this is something that went wrong and you didn’t know it was going to happen that way.

Sir, sir, I was not there.

It’s one of two things. You’re a cold-blooded killer …

Oh my God!

And killed an innocent old man.

Never!

Or something went wrong and you didn’t know it was going to happen.

Never! Never! Sir. Never, sir! I am telling you the honest truth.

It’s one of two things. Which is it?

I’m telling you the honest truth, sir.

Cold-blooded killer?

Never!

Or something went wrong.

 

Never. I didn’t even know it went down. I didn’t even know it went down. I was not there.

You were there.

I was not there.

I have people that put you there.

People are lying! People are lying!

The barbers just picked you out of a hat?

The barbers?  I don’t even know how may barbers are in there! I’ve never been there!

They picked your name out of a hat?

Oh my God, no!

Somebody they have never met?

What is happening  is somebody gave you my name and y’all are putting me on that. I did not do that murder. I did not do that. Y’all not going to trick my life up and take me away from my kids.

We’re not tricking your life up.

You tricked your life up.

For something I didn’t do. I did not do that! I was not near there! I was not near there!

Relax.

This is crazy! I was not near none of that!

You were there.

No I wasn’t! I was not!

What you wanted to do was get a little bit of cash.

No I did not!

 

46:31

Y’all charging me with murder and I didn’t do nothing? Are y’all serious? This is a serious matter, Ms. Mitchell please.

Mitchell: It is serious.

Ms. Mitchell, I beg of you, please, y’all can give me a polygraph test and everything. I was not near there when that happened. I was not near there when that happened. I’m just like y’all, I heard about that thing on the street. That’s not me. That’s not me.

I don’t think it’s you. And I was hoping you would be able to explain your side of the story.

I’m telling you I wasn’t there. There is nothing to explain! I wasn’t there.

We have people that put you there.

I don’t know who these people are. Can you put these people in front of me, and tell me, and tell them …

No.

Yeah, because that’s not right. That’s not right. That’s not right. People cannot put me there at that scene because I was not there. I was not there.

Mitchell: Yes you were.

No, I was not Ms. Mitchell. Ms. Mitchell, Ms. Mitchell, I was not there.

Mitchell: Why would they lie on you?

Ms. Mitchell, I don’t even know who you are getting your information from. You know what I am saying? So I can’t tell you why they would lie on me. Tell me who you are getting your information from, Ms. Mitchell.

Witnesses.

Ms. Mitchell, witnesses to what?

The murder.

And they are saying they say me do it?

Exactly.

That’s ridiculous.

Exactly.

That’s ridiculous.

You were there.

I was not there, Ms. Mitchell. Ms. Mitchell, I was not near there. Oh, my God.  Y’all are pushing me, y’all are making me be there. I was not there, Ms. Mitchell. Ms. Mitchell, I swear to God I was not there.

 

49:13

You’re a cold-blooded killer!

No I am not.

Yes you are!

No I am not!

You’re a f—ing murderer and a cold-blooded killer.

I was not there!

You’re a cold-blooded killer!

Y’all are not going to make me no murderer!

Capital murder.

I was not there.

Capital murder! And we can prove it.

I was not there.

You were there. You pulled the trigger in cold blood.

Pulled the trigger on what? Pulled the trigger on what? Ms. Mitchell you are putting me there and I was not there!

You put yourself there!

 

50:04

Selfish, cold-blooded killer. You’re going to be on the news tomorrow morning and everybody is going to see that the case has been solved, and you are the cold-blooded killer.

No, I didn’t do it.

Yeah, you did.

No, no, no, no.  You know what I am going to be? False arrest. Because I had nothing to do with that. I don’t have nothing to do with that. Like I said, y’all can put me on the poly, and everything.

And you’re going to fail.

I am going to pass.

Fail.
