    Number of shots

    How many fatal shootings with a rifle have you investigated and how many autopsies have you attended featuring rifle wounds? . Autopsies are the real world, sonny. And while you were playing key board commando I was getting my hands bloody in Detroit.

    Should have added that the only shooting involving multiple shots to the head I investigated where the face was somewhat intact was with a M-1 carbine with military fmj ammo I freely admit that if we're not careful we can become victims of our experience.

    Threats? People can't disagree with you without it being considered a threat. I find David Manticks discussion of how many shots is rather compelling and, of, course, push Oswald out of the arena. Never been in the military though trained with a number folks from the black side of spec ops. You were claiming I had no experience or knowledge of suppressed weapon. When I worked for Israel military Industries I fired a wide variety of suppressed weapons in Israel And at NNSA I fired a number of suppressed weapon in 5.56, 7.62, and .338 Lapua thought the Lapua suppressor was short lived and not very effective.

    What part of SWAT and Homicide don't you understand?

    Thanks for the correction as at 76 my memory is not as solid as when I was 75 AND I don't see why my faith in God should be relevant to the subject at hand. I was the original training Sgt for the SWAT Team in Detroit and spent 5 1/2 years as a training specialist for The National Nuclear Security Administration's Office Of Secure Transportation training the feds who transport nukes and yes I'm aware the "Silencers" really don't silence anything.

    could have been firecrackers thrown by a random idiot or by a conspirator. Remember Greer reported a flurry of shots that hit the car he was promptly ignored. FYI, just noticed that Federal is offering a subsonic load in .45 ACP>

    I've been in Dealy Plaza on several occasions and suspect very few there were actually expecting gun fire. Though some folks across the country were watching their clocks. We were with another city's SWAT Team when their team leader produced a suppressed MP5 and told us it was perfect for taking out the watch dogs at a drug house. He then fired, hit the dog in the butt and it howled until the vet sedated it and patched it up.. We were really impressed. Some one, perhaps Lapua. loads subsonic .308. Actually Sam Cummings of Interarmco had warehouses full of all sorts of weapons he picked up for pennies at the end of WW II CIA was one of his most regular customers.

    Larry- I've always had the greatest respect for your efforts but I'm also convinced that Mitch was involved at some level.

    Mitch was an interesting fellow. i talked to a him a couple of times. There were silencers used during WW 2, but the ones I saw where attached to Sten Guns. And they were best suited for assassinating some one in a bath tub. I think the plan was to point out LHO's contact with the Russian Embassy in Mexico and scare people into the suppression mode We had H&K MP5 sub machine guns at Detroit SWAT, but we passed on the suppressed version. I wrote for Soldier Of fortune magazine for a number of years and Bob Brown , retired Green Beret and was the real deal with extensive spec ops experience and deep links to the intelligence community. Bob Brown introduced me to Mitch.

    Two separate tours in Homicide and assigned as the first training Sgt for the swat team gives me a point of view that may be wrong but is not one of a keyboard commando. From investigating a large number of homicides I found to my surprise that eye and ear witnesses are often unreliable. Cooberation? Does that mean they confirm our personal view of what happened. I believe in a conspiracy and suspect Mitch Werbell might have supplied suppressors for some of the weapons. I still wonder why people can't disagree without being disagreeable. My conclusion it was a conspiracy came from reading 26 volumes twice.

    What if?

    We possessed the humility to really listen to others with opposing views and perhaps even admit we were wrong?
  12. Evan Marshall

    What if?

    Once again, its clear that ego will prevent us from listening to others and perhaps expanding our understanding of what really happened. I don't speak for God but I do speak to him on a regular basis.Maybe if we didn't angrily reject others points of view we might be able to refine our points of view. And I'm not talking about my view of what happened. My dad raised me to be a majority of one and I simply don't care if others agree or not. My ego? I buried it years ago.

    !st, i did not bring your name up and the inability to express oneself without obscenities indicates a serious issue.

    This proves my point. Too much ego, too much dogma and we'll never get to the truth.

    Anatomy Of Lee Harvey Oswald's Interrogations

    I did two separate tours in Detroit Homicide and found that two investigators are the max you want wiht the suspect. More than that and they want to outshine the rest.

    I missed your jab about fiction, No, i have never written any fiction and I think you need to remove that accusation. I didn't talk to the man I interrogated him and remember they would have never let me do a second tour at Homicide i they had not been happy with my performance the first time. I don't lurk. I get a notification in my email and then I determine whether a response is needed. Most time it isn't. And if you had read one of my books you would have seen the amount of 1st hand information I require to include to an ACTUAL shooting in my data base and I was a member of the FBI's 1st wound ballistic work shop held as a result of the FBI gunfight in Miami. Oh and finally, I spent a lot of time in the morgue and I asked a lot of questions at autopsies.

    Alternative Assassins (names)

    I was assigned on a sniper detail to protect Teddy Kennedy and George McGovern. The SS had not bothered to get keys for where we were to be located and we ended up on the roof of a porno theater. You can talk angles and location all the day long but the world is a messy place AND it you'd actually read one of my books you'd find they're was significant space spent of rifle and shotguns results

    Alternative Assassins (names)

    Yes I am fully confident these are the right guys. I've only met the military sniper once. Meeting was setup by a CIA bud. We met at the Vietnam Memorial and he was quite bitter about JFK. I was assigned to Detroit Homicide twice and I interrogated him carefully and for several hours and I sure he is the real deal. I quizzed him on sniper stuff too since I had been the original training Sgt for the SWAT Team in Detroit. Folks need to understand that once I've satisfied myself I move on to other things. I wrote three best selling books on ammunition. People wonder why there hasn't been a 4th book. It's simple as i answered all the questions I had and am now working on a different project. k

    There was no guarantee where they could setup. Even the military sniper in Dal Tex could have found his proposed shooting spot occupied. And I'd suggest those labeling shots as "hard" or "easy" have had to shoot at a human being.

    Chasing Our Tails?

    It seems to be at the root of a conspiracy would be the desire to go uncovered. When you start looking at who could control the route, the evidence, the autopsy, and any federal investigations you're far beyond a bunch of red necks burning crosses or even wealthy citizens outside the federal government. We may salivate on the Mafia or the radical right but it doesn't bare close scrutiny. Having known a number of feds their mantra is don't embarrass the bureau or the agency. Nor would they be content in such a case to hook up with folks who would rat them out. And I continually see folks advocating a conspiracy the size of Maine. It would not only be unworkable but unnecessary. When I was a trainer at NNSA we table toped scenarios where we could basically shut the country down with less than 50 people. Our bosses got so alarmed they classified the whole project!

    Ever Wonder

    If maybe there was more than one team operating independently in Dealy Plaza? Might explain some of the conflicting observations by witnesses. I'm aware of an assassination plan in Africa where the Special Air Service realized they were across the street from some South African Special Ops folks that were there to assassinate the same leader and so both groups left without taking any action.

    JM Wave and a military sniper brought in from Vietnam and two of the three died of old age, in bed. The 3rd is still alive far I know.

    JM Wave. Israel would only be a distant memory had they moved against the US in such a fashion.

    Witnesses

    No, Skippy&Cupcake, all witnesses are not equal and closer is not necessarily better. There were a couple of combat veterans in Dealy Plaza and I consider their testimony important. If you're secret service agent who can't differentiate between fire works and rifle shots perhaps a career change might be a splendid idea. The Dr's in Parkland ER I consider extremely valid as they saw gun shot wound on a daily basis. Bethesda? Maybe, if their goal had been the truth. Bud sadly they were not.
