"There've been enough laws broken in Dallas today"


Recommended Posts

Vincent Bugliosi - (Reclaiming History, W.W. Norton, 2007, p. 196)

"Robert Donovan, Washington bureau chief for the Los Angeles Times, finally gets back to his Dallas hotel after an incredibly hectic day that went by without his eating since breakfast the previous morning in Fort Worth. He and some of his colleagues, equally famished and exhausted, were able to send out for food. They give the old black waiter, dressed in a young bellboy's outfit, some extra money to also get them 'a jug' of liquor, telling him they had worked for hours, were frazzled, and needed it."

"But you could't by liquor over the counter in Dallas, it being a 'closed' city, and the waiter wasn't about to find some other way, illicit, to get the hooch. 'No,' he says evenly, 'you couldn't do that beause it would be breaking the law.'"

"He then adds in a voice that Donovan knows he will remember to his dying day, 'There've been enough laws broken in Dallas today.'"

There have been enough laws broken in Dallas and DC that day.

Let me count the ways:

1) Assault and homicide on a federal officer - the President of the United States

2) Assault on John Connally

3) Assault on James Tague

4) Criminal neglegance on behalf of Dallas Secret Service Detail

5) Assault and homicide of Dallas officer J.D. Tippit.

6) Assault on DPD officers and resisting arrest by L.H. Oswald.

7) Theft and interstate transport of body before forensic autopsy by SS

8) Obstruction of Justice in course of investigation of Dealey Plaza crimes

9) Destruction of Evience in the course of investigation of DP crimes.

10) Perjury in sworn depositions

11) Perjury in sworn oath to uphold the Constitution by LBJ

12) Theft of JFK's missle from AF1

13) Obstruciton of Justice in course of investigation of Oak Cliff crimes.

14) Destruction of Evidence in course of investigation of Oak Cliff crimes.

15) Obstruction of Justice and Destruciton of evidence in course of medical examination of injured at Parkland Hospital and during aborted autopsy at Bathesda.

16) Destruction of Evidence at WHCA, DOD and SS.

17) Obstruction of Justice in failure to comply with JFK Act of 1993 by CIA, SS, DOD, et al.

18) Conspiracy to kill the President

19) Treason against the U.S. Constitution of United States.

20) Other?

Possible/probable crimes:

Planting of evidence (in multiple locations).

Conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

Conspiracy to murder the accused.

Criminal negligence in the protection of the accused.

Conspiracy to murder Oswald's killer.

Aiding and abetting criminal activities.

Public accusations of crimes where no charges were laid:

Attempted murder of Officer Nick McDonald.

Resisting arrest.

It is my understanding that it is usual where a suspect is picked up in a major crime case, but where investigations are still being conducted and evidence gathered, that any and all lesser charges are laid in order to hold the accused while such investigations are carried out and to have the option of prosecuting those lesser crimes should the case in the major one not be strong enough.

The public accusations of the above crimes, without the charges being laid, should only be viewed as attempts to prejudice the media and the community against the accused by adding to the overall appearance of guilt in other crimes. The evidence that these lesser offenses actually took place amounts to the contradictory and inconsistent statements of witnesses and the arresting officers.
