  1. You can't have a transiting bullet without a bullet track through the body.
  2. Lee Harvey Oswald : 50 years in Show business

    The clown with the cigar was Dallas Detective Paul Bentley. I agree, Mr. Dobson that these 50 years have been nothing but a dog-and-pony show with respect to the media's handling of this case. These "Oswald-did-it" shows fail to address ANY of the evidence that suggests that Oswald was innocent. How did Oswald order a 36" M-C Troop Special rifle and end up with a 40.2" M-C Fucile Corto ? How did Oswald purchase and mail the money order when the EVIDENCE shows that Oswald was at work ? How did Oswald obtain the ammunition for that rifle when the ammunition was not sold commercially ? If the Dallas Police found the "paper gun sack" on the sixth floor, why doesn't it appear in ANY of the crime scene photographs ? I guess it's so much easier to accept that one is guilty then to examine the evidence against him.
  3. Oswald Leaving TSBD?

    I used to belong to that forum but I found that they are intolerant of any opinion other than Oswald was guilty. Posters were allowed to attack me and NOTHING was done about it, so I quit. That forum can go to hell.
  4. I swear....the closer to this anniversary we get....the more wacky things will be and the more colorful the red herrings will be....advance and read with caution folks. It's difficult to believe that this was a result of an accident. Hoover wanted the FBI to take over Presidential protection. If the FBI had found the SS that inept in protecting the President, to the extent that it actually killed him, he would have pulled whatever strings necessary to move that responsibility over to the FBI. I don't recall any of the witnesses in Dealey Plaza saying the SS killed him.

    And there's another issue that needs to be addressed in the Tippit case. Many of the witnesses who "identified" Oswald from a photograph were never shown a "photographic lineup". Instead, they were shown photographs only of Oswald and nearly every time that photograph was either the New Orleans mugshot or the DPD mugshot. One time, they even showed a witness the "backyard" photograph. So you have planted in the witness' mind the guy they saw was a criminal and armed. Talk about influencing a witness. There was even one witness, I think it was Patterson, who the FBI said identified Oswald from a photo, but who told the Commission that he had never been shown a photo. The Commission's answer to that was to have the FBI show him two photos of Oswald. One was a mugshot, the other the BY photo. They never questioned why the FBI lied in its report.
  6. What did William Scoggins see ?

    Absolutely not. Their power was such that NO defense lawyer in Dallas dared step forward to take Oswald's case. Last I knew, 25 people who had been convicted under the Wade tenure had had their convictions overturned by DNA evidence. The credibility of the Dallas prosecutory system in 1963 was garbage, from the police all the way up to the DA. But you'll never see David Von Pein or the Warren Commission apologists address that. Knowing what I know today, I believe that Ruby killed Oswald in order to prevent him from going to trial. IMO, that's why Ruby couldn't talk in Dallas. He needed to get away from there in order to tell the truth. I think it's absolutely shameful that the Commission declined to take him to Washington, but had no problem paying for plane tickets for right-wing nuts like Revilo Oliver and Edwin Walker, who had NOTHING of evidence in the assassination. When you arrest a suspect, ESPECIALLY WHEN HE'S ARMED, you frisk him before you put him in the cruiser, not two hours later as he's going to a lineup. Anybody who's seen an episode of COPS can tell you that. We always emptied out their pockets and inventoried what we found so they couldn't say we stole something from them. Another thing that shocks me about this case is how poorly informed the Chief of Police was. We always kept our chief informed of all aspects of our investigations. When Curry testified, he didn't know this and didn't know that. He was never at the lineups, he was never at the interrogations and he seems to have been so detached from the whole investigation. It seems that his role was reduced to that of a PR man. When the police got threats against Oswald's life, they couldn't contact the chief for permission to secretly move the prisoner because the chief's home phone was off the hook. I've never heard of anything so ridiculous. The Chiefs I served under were always at the center of things. Everything went through the Chief and he was always available 24 hours a day.

  8. What did William Scoggins see ?

    Thanks, Jim. I've been slacking off due to the holidays and now tax time, but now that I've gotten all of the distractions out of the way, I'm starting to research the issue again. Mr. Von Pein's "fall back " position is that even though the witnesses may be less than perfect, the physical evidence proves Oswald guilty. In this instance, he cites the four spent shells the Commission said were found at the Tippit murder scene. The Commission said that these shells were fired from Oswald's revolver to the exclusion of all other weapons. My question to Mr. Von Pein requires nothing more than a simple yes or no answer. Four shells were found by three different people. Domingo Benavides found two, Barbara Davis and Virginia Davis each found one. Did any of these three witnesses ever identify any of the four shells currently in evidence as the shell or shells they found ? Yes or no ? Just in case Mr. Von Pein answers "yes", to that question, let me have a follow up: Which witnesses found the Remington-Peters shells and which ones found the Westerns ?

    Hang on, they're coming. You mean Barbara Davis who said the shooter was wearing a dark jacket ? You mean Virginia Davis who said the shooter was 18 years old ? You mean Callaway and Guinyard who viewed a police lineup with Oswald and three police employees ? You mean Patterson, who was supposed to have identified Oswald from a photograph, but told the Commission he was never shown a photograph ? You mean Russell who identified Oswald from a mugshot and the "backyard photo" ? You mean Searcy who was never interviewed and Lewis who was never close enough to identify the shooter ? How about Reynolds, who couldn't identify Oswald until after he was shot in the head ? Now THERE'S a witness so credible the Dallas Police didn't believe him. Mr. FRITZ. I didn't talk to him very long because I didn't have to talk to him long or I didn't have to talk to him very long but he told me two or three different stories and I could tell he was a sick man and he had no doubt brain damage from that bullet and he is apt to say anything. Mr. BALL. What did he say? Mr. FRITZ. He told me that--he told me two or three stories, one story he told me when they first brought him into me, for me to talk to him, he told me that he saw this Ruby coming down there and he told him--he said he followed him up and saw which way he went. Mr. BALL. Ruby? Mr. FRITZ. Saw Oswald. Mr. BALL. Oswald? Mr. FRITZ. Yes, Oswald, and I questioned him further and I asked him, how far, how close was the closest you were ever to him, how far were you from him? He said, well, from that car lot across the street there. Well, of course, if he had been at a car lot across the street it would be difficult to follow him on the sidewalk. It would be quite difficult so I talked to him for just a short time and I didn't bother with him any more. I already had some history on him because the other bureau, the forgery bureau had been handling him and they had already told me a lot about him. They discounted anything that he told. ( 4 H 235 ) You got some great witnesses there, Dave. Oh yeah those pages are coming.

    Here's some news for ya. The shells didn't kill Tippit. The bullets did. Establish a chain of custody for those shells.
  11. What did William Scoggins see ?

    Another piece of evidence that points to two shooters is that two different brands of ammunition was used. That says two different shooters. If Oswald had been "between" boxes of ammunition, the remnant of the second box should have been found in the search of his room. It was not. And don't tell me that they found two different types of bullets in his pocket. I'm not buying that BS story. Maybe David Von Pein believes that they could arrest an armed man and not search his person for almost two hours, but I'm not buying it.
  12. Jack White

    I am deeply saddened and shocked to hear of the passing of Jack White. He was always friendly and gracious to me and helpful in putting me in touch with other researchers. A real class act who will be sorely missed. Thank You so much for all your help and my most heartfelt condolences go out to Jack's family.

    The bullets were reloads with low powder charges.
