Robert Blake’s Hostility And Defensive Body Language May Indicate Guilt and Deception
After watching Robert Blake’s defensiveness and open hostility on Piers Morgan’s show where he discussed being acquitted of his wife’s murder, there is no question that he had a lot to hide. When someone is that defensive and goes off on a tirade as Blake did, they are usually not telling you the truth or leaving something out.
To his tightly pursing his lips
to his tight jaw and pointing his index finger at Pierce.
Morgan asked Black if he was telling the truth about Bonnie Blakely’s death. Instead of saying Yes or no, he said: ‘You want to get to the truth if you can. Does that mean I’m lying to you? Tell me where I’m lying.
When someone starts turning the tables back at you by questioning you and wanting you to provide answers, they are not telling you the truth.
Morgan then replied ‘I’m not saying you’re lying.’ But Blake ignored him and went on to say
‘But you say you don’t know if I’m telling the truth, what the hell’s the difference?’
When someone add’s curse words or profanity to the mix, they are displaying their anger . Blake continued to get himself angrier and angrier as he went off on Pierce who only said to him ‘I’m saying I’ve met you for, what, 20 minutes? Why are you being so defensive?’
Blake shot back: ‘Because you just insulted me … nobody tells me I’m a liar
I’ve never allowed anybody to ask me the questions that you’re asking. I allowed you to do that because I trust you.
‘And I would have assumed that you and that guy in your ear would trust me. And if you don’t, then we’d better start talking about The Little Rascals.’
He then proceeds to minimize the murder of Bonnie Blakely by calling the murder case ‘boring’ and irrelevant.
When Pierce asks Blake if he remembers the night his wife died well or if it’s something he blocked out of his head.
Blake immediately throws up his hands as an indication that he I upset with the question. Then he gets angrier and angrier as Pierce says “You had dinner at this restaurant.
Blake leans in purses his lips and then literally gives Pierce the cold shoulder as you can see below he verbally spars with Pierce telling him that if he researched it he should have known what happened that night.
This defensiveness to a simple question and turning the tables in the interviewer smacks of someone who has something to hide.
The most telling thing of all was when Pierce says there is perhaps nothing more significant in your life than the murder of your wife.Blake then defensively says that it was not significant but rather staring in an MGM movie was more significant. He brings up not having parents which may be the root of all of his anger issues and lack of compassion we see for his wife’s death.
Finally, throughout Pierce’s show Blake kept calling Pierce ‘Charlie Potatoes,’ and continued to refer to Pierce as ‘Charlie’ until the end of the interview when he called him ‘Pierce’. This showed Blake’s passive aggression and internal anger.
