But let's put all that to one side for a moment, and come back to the false witness, who claimed that he climbed up a lampost to see into the Rav's third floor apartment. I don't know about you, but that claim struck me as fantastically unbelievable right from the start. But, in the spirit of true investigative journalism, I decided to track the lamp-post down, and to ask my husband to climb it.
You can see the results of our experiment for yourself, below. I can't think of a clearer way of underlining the fact that this has been a witch-hunt and a fabrication right from the start. If the police, judge and media had asked the 'false witness' to climb up the lamp-post again, as he claimed he did when fabricating all his libels and slanders, this story would have ended before it even began.
