Vegas: Jesus Campos Statement on "Shots Fired"
Jesus Campos disappeared from media and canceled his appearances, including on the Sean Hannity Show, but then went on main stream media's the Ellen Degeneres show.
We note that several months ago, Ellen Degeneres signed a contract with the hotel to use her likeness. We have only one statement to work with. The analysis is only of this statement.
"As I was walking down, I heard rapid fire and at first I took cover. I felt a burning sensation. I went to go lift my pant leg up and I saw the blood. That's when I called it in on my radio that shots had been fired."
Let's break it down to learn if he is truthful or not.
"As I was walking down" addresses the element of time. The article did not tell us what question was asked, but if it was, "when did you...?" in any form, this would be an appropriate response.
"I heard rapid fire and at first I took cover."
This uses the pronoun "I" and past tense language.
Numeric: "...and at first I took cover" tells us that as he considers what he did, in recall, he is currently thinking about what he did next.
I felt a burning sensation.
This is also stated with the pronoun "I" and past tense language affirming commitment. It uses sensory description, consistent with not knowing the conclusion of a matter.
He reports not that he was shot, but what he felt. This is significant in discerning deception from truth. It is to give an incomplete answer. He will need to tell us why he is not telling us plainly.
I went to go lift my pant leg up and I saw the blood.
He tells us the reason for his action: he felt burning and then his intention to uncover the source. This makes the action sensitive to him.
He plainly reports the sequence of activity in recall. He did not know he was shot.
This is an indication of experiential memory in play.
"I saw the blood" is a strong statement. The article "the" is in reference to the source of what he was "feeling" and why he went to lift up his pant leg. This incomplete action is very likely due to the volume of blood. It is not "blood" nor "my blood" but "the" blood; which, in his language, was already identified, by "feeling" (sensory) but not knowing the source.
This is not the language of story telling, but of recall. It is processed information for him. He is working in sequence of his experience.
An example of story telling would be to not identify ownership of blood, which would require creative thought on the recipient. This is not his intention.
The immediate intention of story telling is to create reciprocal thought in the hearer. Instead, he is using experiential recall.
He then returns to the element of time, of which began his answer. This further affirms that the question was very likely "...When did you...?" The specific question could have been, "When did you call in that shots had been fired?" based upon the answer.
That's when I called it in on my radio that shots had been fired."
Analysis Conclusion: Veracity Indicated.
The subject is not intending to deceive in this answer and is reliably stating when he called in "shots fired."
He did not know he was shot, but knew he felt a burning and when (time) he went to lift up his pants' leg, he saw "the" (specified earlier in his thought of what he felt) blood. This is consistent with chronological order, which is how experiential memory works.
It was likely due to a direct question.
This conclusion of this analysis is of the above statement only. Every so often, I am asked for an example of what honest recall looks like. This statement is an example of such.
