OSWALD IN THE DOORWAY- the blog of the Oswald Innocence Campaign by Ralph Cinque

Hi Mr. Cinque,
Just wanted to note that the ceiling microphone is visible in the Beers photo but not in the Jackson photo.
How did that occur in 0.6 of a second?
RC: It is important to realize that the Beers and Jackson photos are the photographic record of the Oswald shooting, not the films. That's because in 1963, the public didn't have the films. Today, we have them because we can go on Youtube any time we want and watch them over and over, study them, slow them down, and really hone-in on the details. But, you couldn't do that then. So, Beers and Jackson were meant to be the lasting images, the lasting impressions of the Oswald shooting. And they were made with that very idea in mind. They are both highly staged, highly orchestrated images. And the stories that go with each are just part of the schtick. But when you think about what they gave away, such as the microphone and the grey socks on Bookhout in Beers, which Ruby obviously didn't wear, you have to wonder how they could be so stupid.
