  1. Nicely stated. An excerpt from Salandria link: http://educationforum.ipbhost.com/topic/24562-salandria-and-fonzi-discuss-warren-commission-report-1966/ Salandria: I suggest that Specter and the Commission - at least part of the Commission and certainly Specter - had a pre-determined predisposition to arrive at certain inferences irrespective of what the evidence was. And you consider that lacking in integrity. Well I think that's one way of looking at it. But I think that if you put yourself in the role of Specter at this time - and so far as I can empathize with that kind of position - he took a job. He conceived himself as working for a governmental organization which in turn represented the President and had a specific task. And within that framework, he worked. And in that role he saw himself. And in that role he did a job which he considered a good one, and which was entirely consistent because he had an assignment. And that assignment was - I'm afraid had to be - that there was one assassin, one gun, stationed in the rear of the Texas Book Depository building. And that therefore no matter what the evidence, the ultimate inference would be that. That's how I see Specter's role here. In a certain context, he has integrity. He served his employer. He thinks he served the country. I think he served the government.
  2. "we're gonna do it",

    If the white background building was demo'd between 11-27-63 and 5-24-1964, that would explain the difference.
  3. "we're gonna do it",

    We have to be more specific than that. The windows are not seen on the official WC (Position A photo used) reenactment. But, fortunately for us, there is other footage from a different vantage point that gives us that WC-Position A match. The checkered pattern is the key. High-Low

    David, Setting aside the "slide" question for a moment, Bart pointed out Truly's position within Wiegman. That position matches(close enough)Truly in Bell and Towner.

    Michael, Thank you for stating that succinctly. I do believe we are missing more from the end of Towner's film than we have.

    Paul, Plenty has been provided. It appears no conditions will satisfy your expectations. Our discussion is over. Chris

    David, Listen to the Tina Towner clip while viewing the side by side frames. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1wUpvU6b28UGTslP54m6GVGi6QUCzR_eo/view?usp=sharing The side by side is before JFK the limo reaches Position A.

    The analogy would be the 56 chevy? making the turn. The outside left turn lane from Houston onto Elm, would be more indicative of a Truly path, in relationship to the abutment. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1cK1h20oqrGCfE_gEeNuowaMiwxTpNXxM/view?usp=sharing

    Maybe the WC listened to Truly's description (limo turning onto Elm St) and plotted it (Position A) accordingly. Then again, Position A's path to where the limo is shown at extant Z133, as opposed to where the other films (Towner, Bell) show its path, would add more time/distance/frames to the equation. So, at another point, more time/distance and frames could be subtracted. Think Myers. Same result as Truly's long-winded description. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1589sGWXKv9W_793F4fYQZ-iCqOhNcmxG/view?usp=sharing Mr. SPECTER. When you say that position A is the first position at which President Kennedy was in view of the marksman from the southeast window on the sixth floor of the School Book Depository Building, you mean by that the first position where the marksman saw the rear of the President's stand-in? Mr. SHANEYFELT. That is correct. Mr. SPECTER. So that would be the first position where the marksman could focus in on the circled point where the point of entry on the President was marked? Mr. SHANEYFELT. That is correct. Mr. SPECTER. Could the marksman then have taken a shot at the President at any prior position and have struck him with the point of entry on that spot, on the base of the President's neck? Mr. SHANEYFELT. I don't quite understand the question. Mr. SPECTER. Was there any prior position, that is a position before position A, where the marksman from the sixth floor could have fired the weapon and have struck the President at the known point of entry at the base of the back of his neck? Mr. SHANEYFELT. No; because as the car moves back, you lose sight of the chalk mark on the back of his coat.

    Paul, The pedestrians in the crosswalk would be approx 20ft from the abutment. One just has to picture the white trucks arc path intersecting the pedestrians. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Dallas+County+Administration+Building,+411+Elm+St,+Dallas,+TX+75202/@32.779609,-96.808166,3a,75y,220.72h,90.69t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sktZrvfU95nAJgtau5BF_Yw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656!4m5!3m4!1s0x864e9915def944eb:0x5760e9acaf0982b6!8m2!3d32.779839!4d-96.8084445

    Paul , my responses are in blue.

    Elm St. is 40ft wide. 40/3 lanes = 13 1/3ft per lane Limo = 76.8 inches wide = 6.4ft Limo driver side (Towner film)= 1ft from south lane stripe. 13.3 +1 =14.3 + 6.4 = 20.7ft Limo passenger side is approx 19.3ft from the abutment. 20.7 + 19.3 = 40ft https://drive.google.com/file/d/1PONpZwHzjfWg3nNDUM399hGgFwpVSDpJ/view?usp=sharing
  15. When did the Coke Appear?

    Ron, Baker is between the blue chevy convertible's(Hughes film). The lead one is in the background at Z233. Plotting the front end of it puts it at 96.25ft down Houston St. Minus 17.5ft for car length and another trailing 10ft for Baker. At extant Z233, Baker is 96.25ft - 27.5ft = 68.75 down Houston St. If first shot was at Z223 = another 10/18.3frames = .546 x 13.47ft per sec = (9.3mph= average speed of motorcade down Houston)= 7.35ft At z223, Baker is approx 68.75 - 7.35ft = 61.4ft down Houston St. z313 - z223 = 90zframes = 4.91seconds 4.91 sec x 13.47ft per sec (9.3mph) = 66.13ft z223= 61.4ft + 66.13ft = 127.5ft down Houston at Z313. Corner to Corner Houston St = 200ft CRB Corner to Baker's ultimate parking location if he followed the motorcade path around the Elm St turn = 82ft So, at z313, Baker must drive 200 - 127.5 = 72.5 + 82 = approx 155ft to park his cycle. If he maintains the 9.3mph(13.47ft per sec) motorcade speed for his final 155ft, it will take him 11.5seconds to get to his final destination. Obviously, if he heard a shot earlier than z223, then his distance traveled after z313 would increase.
