The WILMA BOND Photos Do Not
Timestamp GORDON ARNOLD's Presence
Anywhere on the Grassy Knoll



by Donald Roberdeau
© 2003 to 2012



Thank You to the many dedicated and respected John F. Kennedy assassination researchers who have provided their very appreciated and valuable follow up help with solid interpretations, clear follow up films frames, and clear photos.

Good Day.... Here is my promised study timestamping the 6 post-attack photo-slides by WILMA BOND, the continuously-filmed DAVE WIEGMAN film, a JAMES TOWNER photo, and additional photos and films that collectively all show and detail for us up to 93-plus seconds after the Dealey Plaza attack the grassy knoll, retaining wall, picket fence area.

Given what claims GORDON ARNOLD made in his 1978 initial statements (almost 15 years after the attack), then later, the claims that ARNOLD added (or changed) by 1988's "The Men Who Killed Kennedy," then later, claims that ARNOLD added (or changed) in his 1989 oral history videotaped interview for the "Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza," here follows a study estimating a common sense timestamping range for the ARNOLD-claimed "Gordon Arnold+'badge man assassin'+'badge man accomplice,'" supposed, grassy knoll encounter utilizing BOND's timestamping (as told to RICHARD TRASK when she stated that she captured a photo-slide every 5 to 10 seconds) after her BOND #4 slide-photo, and coordinated with the continuous-filming DAVE WIEGMAN Jr.'s visibility in BOND slide photo #4:


**NOTE** These actions seconds estimates are minimum, timestamping estimates, and do not allow for a probable element of liberal, even more time consuming, immobilizing anxieties by the, supposed, "Arnold," and/or the, supposed, "badge man accomplice," and/or the, supposed, crying "badge man" assassin during "Arnold's", supposed encounter.


SECONDS AFTER SHOT
SUPPOSEDLY PASSED
ARNOLD's LEFT EAR......
(Necessary mandatory minimum action timestamped after, supposed, "badge man"-triggered bullet passed "Arnold's" left side)



0 second after bullet, supposedly, passes "Arnold's" left side...... Shot occurs wherein the, supposed, "badge man" rifle muzzle end opening is elevated a minimum of at least 7.60' above the ground if the rifle muzzle end opening of the, supposed, "badge man" (BM) is even with the picket fence. The mandatory minimum height is necessary for the bullet to barely clear the retaining wall corner by 1" if the very top of the President's head was 4' above the Z-313 street point. Before barely clearing the retaining wall corner, the bullet, supposedly, passes close to ARNOLD's left side according to his claims [1, 2] (If President KENNEDY's head top was 5' above Elm Street, the mandatory minimum height of the, supposed, "badge man" weapon muzzle end would have been 6.98')

**NOTE** Please see the following viewable link for the larger professionally surveyed and scaled diagram showing that President KENNEDY was facing nearly 90-degrees perpendicular away from the, supposed, "badge man" assassin and the, supposed, grassy knoll picket fence assassin at Z-313 when his head, initially, exploded.



1-2 seconds after bullet, supposedly, passed ARNOLD's left side.... According to ARNOLD, he immediately reacts and, according to persons who believe RALPH YARBOROUGH's nebulous statement in "The Men Who Killed Kennedy," YARBOROUGH, fleetingly, saw "ARNOLD," jumps 10' [3] to his right (westward), away from the, supposedly, close bullet that passed him on his left. ARNOLD lands on the ground to his right (west-to-west-south-westward from where he was standing pre-shot), some distance away from the bow shockwave passing him on his left. [1, 2]

NOTE: There is at least one conflict between several elements involving YARBOROUGH's statements, ARNOLD's statements, the "Arnold" image mandatory line-of-sight as seen in the MOORMAN #5 polaroid MACK-WHITE transparent-oils-colorized, brightness/contrasted enhancement captured concurrent with Z-315/6, and the WILLIS #5 slide-photo mandatory "black dog man" image. (see YARBOROUGH's 1993 statements, detailed below)

The WILLIS #5 slide photo captured the HSCA-determined human "black dog man" at Z-202, only 6 seconds before the President's head exploded.

ARNOLD said he had his camera upwards at his face, and was panning the camera, when he noticed the President was already on Elm Street [2].

Some persons think that the "black dog man" is ARNOLD. If true, it is common sense that if ARNOLD was already standing and panning with his upheld mother's movie camera, that he was standing still while panning side-to-side. Further strong support (and common sense) for ARNOLD/"black dog man" having to stand without moving his feet while having his mother's movie camera upwards to his face is that a few persons contend that ARNOLD was standing on a "dirt mound," which would also, most likely, require him to be standing still and motionless while, supposedly, filming while balanced atop the "dirt mound".

Please refer to the above HSCA survey-based diagram (note the very-near-levelness of the professionally surveyed ground from the inside corner of the retaining wall, across the top pergola step, all the way to the corner of the picket fence.... In no professional ground survey has any dirt mound ever been detailed, and, to-date, no one has supplied photographic support from 22NOV63 showing a dirt mound located anywhere on the mandatory line-of-sight for "Arnold" as seen in the MACK-WHITE MOORMAN transparent-oils-colorized, brightness/contrasted enhancement.

Also in the above HSCA survey-based diagram, please note the intersection point of the WILLIS "black dog man" image mandatory line-of-sight with the MACK-WHITE transparent-oils-colorized, brightness-contrasted enhanced MOORMAN version mandatory line-of-sight. This intersection point is located in the very short space between the eastern-edge of the pergola west sidewalk, and the western-edge of the retaining wall.

In "The Men Who Killed Kennedy," YARBOROUGH said he "saw a man jump about 10 feet and land against a wall, like an old time flying tackle in football." Note that YARBOROUGH did not, specifically, say he saw a man wearing a military uniform, nor did YARBOROUGH say this man was wearing a military cap, but, instead, YARBOROUGH inferred the "old time flying tackle" reminded him of someone who may have been infantry-trained.

From YARBOROUGH's perspective higher than "ARNOLD's" head top from Z-160 to about 220, and, from YARBOROUGH's perspective lower than "ARNOLD's" from Z-220 onward, the 3.3' tall retaining wall would have blocked approximately half, then more than half (including "Arnold's" waistline belt buckle), of "Arnold's" body, yet in the MACK-WHITE transparent-oils-colorized, brightness-contrasted enhanced MOORMAN version we can "see" several inches below "Arnold's" beltline/belt buckle. From YARBOROUGH's perspective lower than "Arnold" from Z-220 all the way to, at least, Z-323, for YARBOROUGH to be able to perspectively estimate a 10' horizontal run/dive towards a "wall" (whether it be the retaining wall, or, the picket fence "wall") "Arnold" would have to be moving roughly perpendicular to across YARBOROUGH's line-of-sight (not mostly straight at, or, moving mostly directly away from YARBOROUGH), for YARBOROUGH to estimate a 10' distance covered in only 1 or 2 seconds. Perpendicular to YARBOROUGH is along a due north-south line of direction.

We know from total lack of witness and photographic evidence that no one dove from that spot due south and landed onto the inclined area near the pergola steps, nor is anyone seen laying, west of the west end of the retaining wall.

YARBOROUGH clarified his position even more in 1993 when he was interviewed at his Austin home by historian DAVID MURPH of Texas Christian University. MURPH reminded YARBOROUGH that he had been quoted as saying he had witnessed a man on the grassy knoll throw himself down on the ground, and that the man had impressed him as a combat veteran. YARBOROUGH seemed puzzled to hear that his words had been applied to someone standing on the grassy knoll.

"That couldn't possibly be correct," he insisted repeatedly.

"Remember where I was in the motorcade — with the Johnsons," he cautioned MURPH, "too far back to have been able to see anyone (on the knoll) drop to the ground when firing began." [4]

Another conflict is that if "Arnold" dove due north, which was towards the retaining wall's much longer east, north-south-running leg, he would have been diving TOWARDS A 130 DECIBELS TO 150 DECIBELS EAR-SHATTERING, "badge man" TRIGGERED MUZZLE BLAST/BULLET BOW-SHOCKWAVE that, supposedly, passed very close to his ear. (In the diagram linked above, the red line represents the center of the, supposed, "badge man's" head, not the, supposed, trajectory of a, supposed, Z-313 bullet that would have actually passed very slightly west of the retaining wall corner)
From ARNOLD's own mouth in "The Men Who Killed Kennedy" while he was viewing the MACK-WHITE transparent-oils-colorized, brightness/contrasted MOORMAN enhancement, even ARNOLD stated that in the MACK-WHITE transparent-oils-colorized, brightness/contrasted MOORMAN enhancement that "he" appeared to be LEANING AWAY FROM the, supposed, 130 DECIBELS TO 150 DECIBELS EAR-SHATTERING, "badge man" triggered muzzle blast bullet bow shockwave. (ARNOLD, supposedly, viewed with surprise the transparent-oils-colorized, brightness/contrasted enhanced photo for the first time, even though it had been only 6 years at that 1988
"The Men Who Killed Kennedy"-point since ARNOLD had been told by GARY MACK in 1982 that ARNOLD may be seen in a photo),

In my decades of military experience, myself, and the vast majority of persons, almost always move AWAY from a 130 decibels to 150 decibels ear-shattering muzzle blast/bullet bow shockwave.... ESPECIALLY, if the blast/shockwave is completely unexpected.




3-5 seconds after bullet, supposedly, passed ARNOLD's left side.... ARNOLD claimed there was another shot [1], or, seemed as if another shot [2] fired while he was still laying on the ground.



6-8 seconds after bullet, supposedly, passed ARNOLD's left side.... standing DPD-uniformed "badge man accomplice" (BMA) leaps/shimmy's straight towards ARNOLD over the 5' high picket fence (where does the second "badge man" accomplice, the "construction hatted man accomplice"....CHMA.... supposedly, seen in the MACK-WHITE transparent-oils-colorized, brightness/contrasted MOORMAN-enhancement, escape towards?)

QUESTION: did the CHMA stay behind to retrieve BM's ejected shell casing while BMA & BM leap/shimmy/run-around-north-end of the picket fence to approach ARNOLD,

or,

Did BMA retrieve BM's ejected shell casing before his leap/shimmy/run-around-north-end of the picket fence to approach ARNOLD,

or,

Did the weapon have an ejected shell casing canister that prevented the spent shell from being ejected onto the ground (a canister that ARNOLD never noticed and never described, although in 1988 he did illustrate the weapon as looking "big around"),

or,

Did BM simply not eject the shell casing?


*NOTE: WOULD BMA HAVE immediately HEADED TOWARDS ARNOLD IF THE BLACK MAN & WOMAN WHOM SITZMAN SAW ON THE RETAINING WALL BENCH WERE STILL REMAINING VISIBLE TO BMA IN HIS IMMEDIATE, NEARBY AREA? If BMA waited for them to leave, this adds several, and perhaps, many more seconds to all of the concurrent encounter-actions timestamps.

INTERESTING NOTE: in "The Men Who Killed Kennedy" ARNOLD said "the gentleman came from around here" pointing behind himself (northwest), to his left, rear side, pointing towards the north-south fence-line of the picket fence that runs north from the picket fence corner.

**NOTE: VERY IMPORTANTLY, IF BMA DID NOT IMMEDIATELY LEAP/SHIMMY OVER THE 5' HIGH-ON-PARKING-LOT-SIDE OF THE PICKET FENCE (4'10" on "grassy knoll" side of fence), BUT, INSTEAD, WALKED/TROTTED THE REQUISITE LONGER ROUTE 20' NORTH, THEN TURNED AROUND THE PICKET FENCE END, THEN WALKED/TROTTED 40' BACK TO ARNOLD, NOW, SUPPOSEDLY, LYING ON THE GROUND, IT WOULD HAVE CONSUMED MUCH MORE TIME…. REALISTICALLY, UP TO 10 SECONDS MORE TIME AT 4.1 m.p.h. (**if BMA took the longer route the cumulative maximum action timestamped seconds after ARNOLD's eardrum-bursting shot are indicated in parentheses along with any concurrent BOND photo captured at that longer route action timestamp 5 to 10 second interval)



9-12* seconds after bullet, supposedly, passed ARNOLD's left side.... (or 22 seconds**).. Standing BMA traverses about 20' and approaches ARNOLD if BMA took the longer route, BOND #4 would have been captured while BMA was standing and walking/trotting towards ARNOLD.

(Nothing/no one, other than the bottle, is seen standing near retaining wall/picket fence west side in BOND #4)

Are the, supposed, BM & BMA still standing?




13-15* seconds after bullet, supposedly, passed ARNOLD's left side.... (or 25 seconds**)... BMA, standing, asks ARNOLD if he was filming [1, 2]
(Nothing/no one, other than the bottle, is seen standing near retaining wall/picket fence west side in BOND #5)

Are the, supposed, BM & BMA still standing?




16-18* seconds after bullet, supposedly, passed ARNOLD's left side.... (or 28 seconds**).. ARNOLD tells standing BMA to "Go jump in the river" [1]

Are the, supposed, BM & BMA still standing?



19-21* seconds after bullet, supposedly, passed ARNOLD's left side.... (or 31 seconds**).. ARNOLD affirms to standing BMA he was filming [1, 2]

Are the, supposed, BM & BMA still standing?



22-24* seconds after bullet, supposedly, passed ARNOLD's left side.... (or 34 seconds**).. Standing BMA kicks [2] ARNOLD and demands film [1, 2].... ARNOLD notices a second, standing, armed uniformed man, who is crying [2], who is also now standing close by [1, 2], and, in ARNOLD's words, "waving" a weapon. [1, 2]

Are the, supposed, BM & BMA still standing?



25-30* seconds after bullet, supposedly, passed ARNOLD's left side.... (or 40 seconds**) ARNOLD sits upright some, (or stands up),

then moves his mother's movie camera to a relatively level position in front of himself,

then unlocks the film compartment hatch,

then starts to unlock/release the film from the camera guts film spool retaining mechanisms.

(All of which mandates even more consumed time to complete)

(Nothing/no one, other than the bottle, is seen standing near retaining wall/picket fence west side in BOND #6, nor #8)

Are the, supposed, BM & BMA still standing?


***NOTE: IF THE FILM LOADED INSIDE THE MOVIE CAMERA WAS NOT COMPLETELY EXPOSED-THROUGH AND TAKEN UP COMPLETELY ONTO THE FILM SPOOL, THERE WOULD HAVE, ABSOLUTELY, BEEN A VERY LARGE AMOUNT OF ADDITIONAL TIME REQUIRED FOR ARNOLD TO ACTIVATE A RELEASE MECHANISM, THEN TAKE UP THE BALANCE OF THE UNEXPOSED FILM COMPLETELY ONTO ONLY THE TAKE-UP SPOOL, POSSIBLY AS MUCH AS 10-20 SECONDS MORE CONSUMED TIME DEPENDING ON THE LENGTH OF FILM NEEDED TAKING UP, THE FUNCTIONALITY OF THE CAMERA MECHANISMS, ARNOLD's ANXIETY, ETC.

To posit that ARNOLD just ripped the film out of the camera is not realistic, IMO, because he would not have done that to his mother's, precious, movie camera to avoid damaging her camera. It is also interesting that just one year later, in 1989, ARNOLD's story had then mutated to then add and claim that the camera fell out of his hands when he dove rightward not into any camera's view; that the ground-laying camera was still running and generally pointed towards either "badge man" or the "badge man accomplice"; and that it was the "badge man accomplice," completely unfamiliar with the film-releasing methodologies and mechanisms who retrieved the movie camera and removed the film (of course, also, leaving behind the "badge man accomplice" fresh fingerprints outside and inside of the movie camera!)



30 seconds after bullet, supposedly, passed ARNOLD's left side.... BOND #4 (or 40 seconds**=BOND #5 maximum)

Are the, supposed, BM & BMA still standing?



31-35*.... ARNOLD detaches film spool from inside movie camera guts. [1, 2]

(Nothing/no one, other than the bottle, is seen standing near retaining wall/picket fence west side in BOND #7)

Are the, supposed, BM & BMA still standing?




35 seconds after bullet, supposedly, passed ARNOLD's left side.... BOND #5 minimum

(Nothing/no one, other than the bottle, is seen standing near retaining wall/picket fence west side in BOND #5)

Are the, supposed, BM & BMA still standing?




Please view the following link for a larger view of BOND #5, available here



*NOTE* on the BOND slides where one person is seen rising up higher that the mandatory line-of-sight from BOND to the person seen rising up higher intersects directly onto the sitting bench that was located nearly adjacent to the wall "step" located almost midway on the top of the retaining wall.



36-39* seconds after bullet, supposedly, passed ARNOLD's left side.... (or 49 seconds*****)..ARNOLD removes film spool from movie camera and hands film spool to standing BMA [1, 2]

Are the, supposed, BM & BMA still standing?




40 seconds after bullet, supposedly, passed ARNOLD's left side.... BOND #5 maximum

(nothing/no one, other than the bottle, is seen standing near retaining wall/picket fence west side in BOND #5, nor #6)

Are the, supposed, BM & BMA still standing?




41-43* seconds after bullet, supposedly, passed ARNOLD's left side.... (or 53 seconds*****)..Standing BMA takes hold of film spool from ARNOLD, then he and standing BM turn away from ARNOLD and walk northeastward away from him, and ARNOLD leaves the retaining wall area walking northward towards the parking lot, away from Elm Street. [1, 2]

Are the, supposed, BM & BMA still standing?

....Which photographers are still photographing when the NEWMAN's were still laying on the ground, and.... how does that match, time wise, with what we see in the photos or film they captured?

The WIEGMAN continuously running film is important for many considerations.

WIEGMAN first turned towards and captures the NEWMAN's laying protectively over their sons at 26 seconds after the starting filming, and captures them for about 5 seconds.

In BOND #4 we can clearly see that WIEGMAN is still filming the NEWMAN's, and the NEWMAN's are still laying protectively over their children (they maintain to this day that the shots they sensed came from behind them --at Z-202 to, even as late as Z-313, we can see that "behind" them is the retaining wall/picket fence/north TOP sewer areas)....so TRASK's estimate of "within 20 seconds" is incorrect by, at least, 6 to 11 seconds. (also remember, WIEGMAN started filming just after "his" 2nd blast or shockwave, about 1 or 2 seconds before "his" 3rd blast or shockwave he remembered hearing)

Another of the many keys we can utilize for timestamping is the CHISM's.

Near the end of the WIEGMAN film, viewable here, we can, very clearly, see Mrs. CHISM carrying her, big-for-a-3-year-old-compared-to-her, son clutched in her arms (Mr. CHISM comes into view briefly when they both begin to trot westward). Mrs. CHISM is standing in the grass close to the alter-ego pedestal of the "ZAPRUDER-pedestal," just before other photos show the CHISM's trotting westward off the GK grass onto the sidewalk.

By BOND #6, Mrs. CHISM is, measurably, 190' away from where we saw her in the WIEGMAN film --halfway between the westernmost last two light poles on the north Elm Street sidewalk-- approaching the TUP with Mr. CHISM. To get an idea of how long it took them from the WIEGMAN film to get to where we see them near the TUP in BOND #6: if Mrs. CHISM continuously trotted at a 4 m.p.h. average while carrying her son (without stopping), it would have taken her 33 seconds to get that far down Elm. After WIEGMAN's filming of the NEWMAN's we can first see the CHISM's start trotting at 32 seconds into the WIEGMAN film (4.5 seconds before the WIEGMAN film ends, which was 30 or 31 seconds after WIEGMAN. heard "his" third audible muzzle blast or mechanically-suppress-fired bullet bow shockwave). Using 4 m.p.h. as Mrs. CHISM's continuous trotting speed timestamps BOND #6 at a minimum of 63 or 64 seconds after the attack ended. (is there any statement(s) or photo evidence that the CHISM's stopped/paused during their trot? If so, a stop, pause, or slowing-down would increase the seconds of the BOND #6 timestamping even longer after the attack)

I was checking the photos and thinking about the sequencing of which BOND photos the TOWNER #3 photo falls within. After thinking about it and doing some double-checking, I think that CUTLER was correct. TOWNER #3 was, indeed, captured between BOND #6 and #7....

Looking first at the BOND #6 photo, viewable here....

....To start off, the 2 men that are each labeled with a yellow "x" are two of the three men that we saw in MOORMAN, NIX, MUCHMORE standing half-way up the pergola steps during the attack. (one of these men is Plaza of Dealey groundskeeper, EMMETT HUDSON who initially warrenatti-testified that not only did some shots originate from behind him and pass over/near him, but that he, like several other key and/or close attack witnesses, also heard a distinctly separate shot noticeably AFTER he saw President KENNEDY's head initially rupture and explode)

....Importantly, take note of the dark-complected, beret-hatted, light-color-jacketed man whom some call "the accomplice" (TA), who is walking west down the Elm Street north sidewalk, at a point location approximately 6'/7' west of the street light pole that obscured President KENNEDY's head at Z-272.

....A light-colored-clothing man (#3) near the dark-suited man (#2), both in the GK grass, is heading upward towards the picket fence corner area,

....Let's also consider the dark-suited-hatted-man (#4), who is standing at the bottom of the pergola steps while he is looking towards, at least, nine persons already running westward along the picket fence towards the north vertical double sewer located where the far-west picket fence end point adjoins to the cement TOP.

....Note that in BOND #6 the "running suited man" (RSM), who first appears in this three photo study in TOWNER #3, is, probably, somewhere just outside the right side vertical photo frame of BOND #6, probably, running westward towards the picket fence corner area.

....We can also see the "shelter man" (SM), who appears to be, from BOND's line-of-sight, "above" the pythacantha bush.

....We can also just barely see the head of one person (#1), (not two or three persons, supposedly, of ARNOLD's claimed encounter), and that one person is very close, and probably 1' or 2' south of, the retaining wall sitting bench which was located 10' to the LEFT of a, supposed, MACK-WHITE transparent-oils-colorized & brightness/contrast enhanced version MOORMAN #5 "badge man" Z-313 bullet trajectory that a, supposed, GORDON ARNOLD, supposedly, was standing to the RIGHT of.

(if you save these photos, besides color/contrast/brightness/gamma and other filter enhancements, you can also invert the shades of a photo, which will, oftentimes, also resolve even more for your viewing persons located within dark tree shadows)

Now, viewing the TOWNER #3 photo, (TOWNER has moved from the Houston/Elm southwest corner curve, westward, into the "north infield grass", and is near where the black man wearing the apron --labeled "AM" on my DP map-- had been applauding as the President entered the kill zone and the attack started)

We can see that since BOND #6....

....the two "x" men are still near their same attack location/BOND #6 location about half-way up the pergola steps; one of them is now standing up,

....TA has walked about 11' westward on the sidewalk since BOND #6 (if he was steadily walking at 2 m.p.h. --and did not stop/pause-- since BOND #6, then TOWNER #3 was captured 3.75 seconds after BOND #6),

....the RSM running-suited man is now seen in the GK grass, running northwestward towards the picket fence corner,

....the #3 light-colored-clothing man has moved further up the pergola steps and is nearly in line with (from TOWNER's line-of-sight) the one person I yellow labeled #1, (not two or three persons, supposedly, of ARNOLD's claimed encounter), and that one person is STILL close to the retaining wall sitting bench which was located 10' to the LEFT of a, supposed, MACK-WHITE transparent-oils-colorized & brightness/contrast enhanced version MOORMAN #5 "badge man" Z-313 bullet trajectory that a, supposed, GORDON ARNOLD, supposedly, was standing to the RIGHT of,

....Since BOND #6 the #2 dark-suited man has also moved up the pergola steps and is just passing the south leg of the retaining wall,

....Since BOND #6 the #4 dark-suited-hatted-man has moved about half-way up the pergola steps, headed for the picket fence corner area,

....We can also still see --and see more of-- the SM shelter man, who, probably, is standing on the shelter-steps 2' high west wall

Moving forward in time to BOND #7, viewable here....

....the two "x" men are still near their attack location, about half-way up the pergola steps; the standing "x" man appears to be watching the group of persons still running westward along the picket fence towards the north vertical double sewer located where the far-west picket fence end point adjoins to the cement TOP.

....TA has walked even further westward down the sidewalk since TOWNER #3, and is now some 29' from where we saw him in BOND #6 (if he was steadily walking at 2 m.p.h. and did not stop/pause after BOND #6, then BOND #7 was captured 9.89 seconds after BOND #6),

....Since TOWNER #3 the RSM running-suited man has run more westward up the retaining wall south face grass slope, and is very close to the retaining wall, reaching with his right hand to grab the edge of the wall,

....#3 light-colored-clothing man is no where to be seen when BOND #7 is studied in normal shades and inverted shades. I can only theorize that he is out of sight from BOND's camera when he either moved around the northwest side of the pergola shelter, maybe, headed for the TSBD parking lot, or, he went into the shelter, (I seem to recall ZAPRUDER &/or SITZMAN saying they were joined by someone(s) other than the HESTER's) or, he fell down somewhere below the 3.3' high retaining wall since we last saw him in TOWNER #3 on the shelter sidewalk,

....#2 dark-suited man can barely be seen using inverted shades and has moved further northward on the shelter sidewalk, towards the shelter,

....#4 dark-suited-hatted-man has moved further north up the pergola steps and is on the shelter sidewalk, or near the picket fence (he is hard to distinguish), just north of the south face of the retaining wall,

....We can also see the "shelter man" (SM) still appears to be (from BOND's line-of-sight) "above" the pythacantha bush.

....We can also see that there is still only one person (#1) (not the two or three persons, supposedly, of ARNOLD's claimed encounter), and that one person has raised his/her head slightly higher and southward since BOND #6, yet this one person is STILL very close, probably now 3' or 4' south of, the retaining wall sitting bench which was located 10' to the LEFT of a, supposed, MACK-WHITE transparent-oils-colorized & brightness/contrast enhanced version MOORMAN #5 "badge man" Z-313 bullet trajectory that a, supposed, GORDON ARNOLD, supposedly, was standing to the RIGHT of.

In summation,

BOND #6 calculates to actually have been captured, at a minimum, 63/64 seconds after the attack ended

TOWNER #3 was captured, at a minimum, between BOND # 6 & BOND #7, 67/68 seconds after the attack ended

BOND #7 was captured, at a minimum, 73/74 seconds after the attack ended.




63 seconds after bullet, supposedly, passed ARNOLD's left side.... BOND #6

(nothing/no one, other than the bottle, is seen standing near retaining wall/picket fence west side in BOND #8)

Are the, supposed, BM & BMA still standing?




73 seconds after bullet, supposedly, passed ARNOLD's left side.... BOND #7

(nothing/no one, other than the bottle, is seen standing near retaining wall/picket fence west side in BOND #7)

Are the, supposed, BM & BMA still standing?

Please see the following active link for the larger view of BOND #7.


*NOTE* that the person near/sitting on the retaining wall sitting bench has raised up slightly in the seconds since BOND #5



78 seconds after bullet, supposedly, passed ARNOLD's left side.... BOND #8 minimum

83 seconds after bullet, supposedly, passed ARNOLD's left side.... BOND #8 maximum, BOND #9 minimum (nothing/no one, other than the bottle, is seen standing near retaining wall/picket fence west side in BOND #7)

Are the, supposed, BM & BMA still standing?




88 seconds after bullet, supposedly, passed ARNOLD's left side.... BOND #9 maximum

(nothing/no one, other than the bottle, is seen standing near retaining wall/picket fence west side in BOND #8)

Are the, supposed, BM & BMA still standing?

By my conservative calculations for the required, minimum amount of time necessary from ARNOLD's "eardrum-bursting" shot, to consume just the actions ARNOLD described, the, supposed, "Arnold" + "badge man accomplice" + "badge man" encounter lasted, at least, 61 seconds, and as much as 73 seconds, minimum, if BMA had to run around the north end of the picket fence as ARNOLD claimed (instead of shimmying over it), and, if it took additional time to wind ARNOLD's, supposed, film onto the spool of his Mother's precious camera.

Additionally, if the BMA waited for the black man and woman to run from the immediate area, then it took even more seconds, possibly up to 20 seconds more, putting the, supposed, encounter end at 93 seconds after the shot that, supposedly, passed close to "Arnold's" left ear....

Since the BOND photos (and other film evidence) cover the retaining wall area during this 61 to 73 to 93 seconds time it took minimum for ARNOLD's, supposed, encounter, yet, neither the BOND photos, nor any other film evidence, nor a single witness support a 2 or 3 standing persons encounter (with 2 of them exposing weapons), the only logical conclusion is that there is zero support for ARNOLD's encounter claims, and his encounter claims are, most-likely false.

...Which raises another important consideration...

....In photo enhancements we can see what appears to be one person near/sitting on the retaining wall bench that has his/her head higher in BOND #7 than BOND #5. We know from the above timeline that BOND #5 was captured sometime around 35 to 40 seconds after the attack ended. Based on the BOND #5 timestamping, does anyone care to theorize the implications this person's near-the-retaining-wall-bench image has relative to the evidence and witnesses' statements?

Does anyone have any other enhancements of the retaining wall area taken during the immediate, minimum 61 to 73 to 93 seconds after the attack that support a multiple, standing persons close encounter altercation?

Some of the STOUGHTON, WILLIS, etc. post-attack photos may also provide additional timestamping of the GK/retaining wall areas around the same time as the BOND slides, and add to the overall fluidity of events captured on film. Clear MUCHMORE, NIX, BELL, etc. movie frames may also help.

With respect to the NIX film, here is a zoomed in crop from the NIX film that the few "Arnold-dove-away-from-a-bullet-passing-on-his-left" theorizers and/or "Arnold-was-'black dog man'" theorizers are afraid to address, and are avoiding like the plague. Please see the above active link for the larger professionally surveyed and scaled diagram of the above NIX film frame crop that details NIX's line-of-sight to the retaining wall southeast corner that only a few claim shows a person nearly directly in line with the retaining wall southeast corner.

In the future I will be presenting an addendum for this study detailing the ability, or inability, of a 5.8' tall person ("Arnold") and his, claimed, minimum mandatory movements to be seen when that 5.8' person was behind a 3.3' wall as viewed by a motorcade participant (YARBOROUGH) from within the confines of an Elm Street automobile that had certain obstruction viewing restrictions, and, also contained other passengers and a driver, from specific street points, and, specific measured elevations.

Additionally, on June 6, 1989 ARNOLD was videotaped in an "oral history" interview administered by CONOVER HUNT for the "Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza." In 2004 the written transcript of that interview was revised and released for the non-museum attending public (but not yet available online the internet). Additional information quotes by ARNOLD are detailed
here in my research article, "Additional Claims about the Knoll-Wall." ARNOLD's 1989 claims will eventually be incorporated into this study.


FOOTNOTES

(1) GORDON ARNOLD: "'The next thing I knew someone was kicking my butt and telling me to get up,' Arnold said, 'It was a policeman. And I told him to go jump in the river. And then this other guy - a policeman - comes up with a shotgun and he was crying and that thing was waving back and forth." ("Dallas Morning News," August 27, 1978, under the caption, "SS Impostors Spotted by JFK Witness," by reporter Earl Golz.) Please feel free to email for a complete transcript of the entire article and the article photograph of ARNOLD standing on the "grassy knoll," but close to the picket fence corner. **NOTE** that ARNOLD is specifically claiming there were two separate DPD-uniformed policemen confronted him.

(2) GORDON ARNOLD "The Men Who Killed Kennedy" video documentary by NIGEL TURNER, 1988. Interesting that a man who may have been U.S. Army infantry trained described (Described in 1978, that is) the "badge man" weapon as a "shotgun." What is implausible, imo, is that an assassin would be "waving back and forth" the weapon, in a high probability of attracting attention to himself and the weapon, after he had just used the weapon to fire at the President. Not even one single witness has ever stated he/she saw a DPD uniformed person (or any person), much less TWO men in DPD uniforms, one of which was "waving back and forth" a rifle/shotgun around, FOR ALL WITNESSES TO SEE AND OBSERVE CLOSER, and, of course, not one single piece of photographic evidence supports a rifle/shotgun "waving back and forth", anywhere, anytime, near the knoll/wall/fence afterward. Please feel free to email for a complete transcript of the entire ARNOLD comments and video captures of ARNOLD standing on the "grassy knoll," but, now, much farther away from the picket fence corner.

(3) RALPH YARBOROUGH "The Men Who Killed Kennedy" video documentary by NIGEL TURNER, 1988 "During that shooting, my eye was attracted to the right. I saw movement and I saw a man just jump about 10 feet, like the old time flying tackle in football, and land against a wall. I thought to myself, 'There's an infantryman who's either been shot at in combat, or, he's been trained thoroughly. The minute you hear fire, you get under cover'" Please feel free to email for a complete transcript of all YARBOROUGH comments.
**NOTE** that YARBOROUGH has never said he saw a man wearing a military uniform.
