First, when was it taken? Well, it was taken soon after the shooting. There is no doubt about that. I have been arguing with the Idiot Backes, who maintains that it was taken just seconds after the garage was cleared. It wasn't seconds; it was more like 2 minutes. But, it's still pretty soon.
But, what it implies is that Ruby is being taken upstairs for the first time, but that is IMPOSSIBLE, and that's because he is out of his jacket, and they did NOT start to undress him in the jail office. That is ridiculous. There is no record of that. There is no testimony in support of it. And, they had no reason to do it. They certainly didn't have to do it to search him for weapons. He could have been patted down for that. But furthermore, since he was put in handcuffs immediately upon entering the jail office, and that's according to three detectives, he couldn't access any weapons anyway. So, there was really no hurry to search him for weapons or fear that he could access one; he couldn't; and that's because he was handcuffed.
So, this photo tells us that Ruby had already been up to the 5th floor. That is where it was when this picture was taken, and that is where he was during the televised spectacle. They left it up there when they brought him down. There is no other explanation.
And that means, of course, that he must have reached the garage well before 11:20. And since he saw Lt. Rio "Sam" Pierce when he came in, it means that Pierce exited in his police car much earlier than he claimed.
Someone pointed out that you can see Pierce exiting in his police car about a minute before the shooting. It's in the KRLD footage.
Mr. RUBY: I did not mingle with the crowd. There was no one near me when I walked down that ramp, because if you will time the time I sent the money order, I think it was 10:17 Sunday morning. I think the actual act was committed--I take that back--was it 11 o'clock? You should know this.
Mr. MOORE. 11: 21.
Mr. RUBY. No; when Oswald was shot.
Mr. MOORE. I understood it to be 11:22.
That's Secret Service Agent Elmer W. Moore, and I'm sure Ruby did not direct the question to him. He just butted in.
Elmer W. Moore, 92, passed away peacefully on Dec. 4, 2001 in Yakima,
Washington. Elmer was born March 17, 1909, in San Jose, calif, and grew up
in Palo Atto, CA. He received his BS in 1934 at the University of San
Francisco. In 1941, he was awarded his BA, with distinction, in Police
Science at San Jose State College. Elmer began his law enforcement career in
1939 with the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office. He was appointed a
Special Agent in the US Secret Service in 1942. From 1943 to 1945, he served
in the US Coast Guard Intelligence. In 1945, he returned to the US Secret
Service and proudly served his country under 7 presidents, until his retirement
Look what I found out about Moore:
Gochenaur also allegedly had
conversations with Secret Service agent Elmer Moore regarding the Secret
Service's feelings about Kennedy, and that Moore allegedly said that he had
induced one of the treating physicians in Dallas to change his statement.
So, Elmer got some Parkland doctor to change his statement, and
he got Ruby to change his statement. Guess who the doctor was?
Malcolm Perry. This is from Jim Ostrowski:
Dr. Perry's retraction was not only manipulated but given
under stress. He had been threatened beforehand by "the men in suits," specifically the Secret Service. As Dallas
Secret Service agent Elmer Moore would admit to a friend
years later, he "had been ordered to tell Dr. Perry to
change his testimony." Moore said that in threatening Perry
he acted "on orders from Washington."
This is from Vince Palamara:
Interestingly, in the same article, Golz states that "All but one of Sorrels' six
Dallas agents in 1963 submitted reports of their whereabouts the day of the
assassination. Elmer Moore, the agent who did not submit a report, said he was
in San Francisco and did not return to Dallas to join the investigation until a week
So, Elmer wasn't even there on 11/24, and yet, he quickly corrected
Ruby about the time. Ruby wasn't wrong. He was right. He was there
earlier, and his altercation with the Dallas Police happened earlier.
