OSWALD IN THE DOORWAY- the blog of the Oswald Innocence Campaign by Ralph Cinque
Thursday, December 15, 2016
Hello again Mr. Cinque.
Am I imagining something or is the garage gunman in this film frame much less heavy than the Jackson photo gunman even allowing for the fact that distance may distort the size of his body?
Also, it may be the lighting, but the color of the gunman’s hat more closely matches his suit than in the Jackson photo or in the Beers photo for that matter.
In the Jackson and Beers photos, the contrast between the hat and the suit is much greater.
Your thoughts? ZZZ Ralph Cinque:
I agree that he does look slimmer there than he does in Jackson and Beers. I also agree that his hat looks darker there, not distinctly grey as it looks in Jackson and Beers. How do I explain it? I can't. It's just a discrepancy. What you posted is a film frame, whereas Jackson and Beers are photos. And, they are highly doctored photos. And what I have seen in the JFK assassination is that images were altered without concern about matching other images or being consistent with them. It's as though they did these things without considering that a person might compare the content of two images. It's as though each image exists in its own world. As I have said many times, Beers and Jackson, which are the two main images of record of the Oswald shooting aren't even consistent with each other, showing different figures, different positions, different arrangements, etc. They didn't even consider that a person might compare Beers to Jackson, which, reportedly, were separated by only .6 second. In a word, they didn't make these images for thinking people. They made them for believing people.
