Ian, thank you. I appreciate it. But now, I am going to ask you to really think outside the box, to really look through the Looking Glass because they did something that was so bold, so drastic, so daring, they never thought anybody's mind would go there. 

Let's start with the idea that Babushka Lady took the Moorman photo. Well, BL was shooting from a different angle than MM. BL's perspective was very similar to that of Marie Muchmore, except that Marie was much farther away. But, they were pretty close in terms of the line of sight.

So, if we look at what Marie Muchmore captured, we'll see approximately what Babushka Lady captured.

This Muchmore frame is very very close in time to the  Moorman photo. Note that Mary Moorman does NOT have her camera up to her eye. Her hands aren't high enough. So, she is not shooting a picture. She has already shot her picture. But, Babushka is shooting. And notice that when it comes to the motorcycle cops, we are mostly seeing BJ Martin. That's his bike that we are seeing. All we are seeing of Hargis is his white helmet, his neck, and the top of his shoulders. Note also that BJ Martin appears to be ever so slightly in front of Hargis, even though he was really behind him. That's due to the parallax effect from the angle of view. But, it would have been the same or similar for Babushka Lady.

So, when they altered BL's image to turn it into MM's, this is what they must have started with:

But, Mary's photo was taken perpendicular, which means there was no parallax effect; she captured it the way it was, with Hargis in front of Martin. 

So, they had to duplicate that, and that's where the thumbprint was useful. 

There are two bikes there appearing as one. Look at the front wheel and fender. Now look at the rear tool box behind Hargis. They are not connected; they are not the same bike. The front wheel and fender are close to us, closer to the curb, and less far out into the street. The rear tool box is deeper: deeper in the picture and deeper in the street. The two are not connected. Look at this photo:

Note first that this is NOT the original Moorman photo before the thumbprint, as some claim. It is a photoshopped correction of the damaged one with the thumbprint. But notice next how large Hargis is compared to Kennedy. Why is that? If Mary Moorman had taken it, there would not have been such disparity. The reason for the disparity is that the the camera was located behind Hargis on a line that continued on to Kennedy. In other words, the distance between Hargis and Kennedy was additive from the camera's perspective. But now, look at the two white arrows. On the left, the distance to the front wheel is very short; it's practically nothing. On the right, the distance to the rear tool box is much deeper. Depth in the picture registers as height. There are two motorcycles there. We're seeing the front wheel and windshield of BJ Martin's bike and the rear tool box of Hargis' bike. They were made to look like one motorcycle.  And notice how far away Hargis is from the windshield. How long do you think his arms were? They weren't that long. That isn't his windshield. It's Martin's windshield.

Finally, the image of BJ Martin that appears in the Moorman photo, consisting of a partial handlebar, his hand, and his forearm, is completely bogus. It's not photography; it's art. And it's very crude art at that.

That is not photography. That is not a hand, and it is not a glove either because Martin wasn't wearing gloves. It looks like a clam. All of that fake imagery was added to the photo to duplicate how Mary Moorman's photo must have looked. 

So, that is what they needed the thumbprint for, to completely take out the image of BJ Martin, who was perched slightly in front of Hargis, just as in the Muchmore frame.

That is how I see the Moorman photo. Here is Martin's back:
