I'll get to that, but there are a number of other things in this video that I find significant or peculiar, and I am going through the whole thing, in chronological order.
In the first cut, at 04 seconds, we hear Oswald complain about his lack of "legal representation" and he says it repeatedly throughout the compilation. Hearing it all makes me reject categorically that Oswald ever met with Louis Nichols on Saturday and rejected his offer of legal help. They must have had an Oswald double there.
Oswald asked for unqualified legal assistance. It is clear that he would have welcomed any legal help. The idea that, after all the pleading and complaining and imploring, he would turn it down is preposterous. Again: they must have had an Oswald double there.
At 17 seconds, we hear, for the first time, a man saying, "Oh God, now we got to indoctrinate this guy." That exact same audio is heard again at a later spot in this video in a different circumstance. And neither instance was real. My understanding is that that was said when the other suspect was led in. We don't hear of him any more. Apparently, a decision was made to erase him from the record. He was a short stocky guy. In any case, the line, "Oh God, now we got to indoctrinate this guy" makes no sense for Oswald, and if you watch the video, you'll hear it said in two different circumstances.
At one minute, Oswald says he didn't shoot the President and that he hasn't been told what he's there for. But, before that, we heard Fritz say that Oswald had been "identified" for shooting the officer. But, there is no evidence that the Tippit killing was ever discussed with Oswald. It's not in the Fritz Notes. There is nothing in there about Tippit's murder, nor Oswald's alibi for Tippit's murder, nor anything else he might have said about it.
Oswald was arraigned for the murder of Tippit that Friday evening, so he must have known about it, but the fact is that we have absolutely nothing about the police interrogation of Lee Harvey Oswald about the murder of JD Tippit. Not one word.
At 2:20 you should listen to Oswald at the Midnight Press Conference because the racket going on here is louder and noisier in other versions I've heard. And it stops on a dime as soon as he's done speaking. So, was it going on there? I doubt it. It is probably noise they added afterwards to debase and demean Oswald.
At 3:35, there is a long diatribe by Jim McLair, the Canadian correspondent who went one to anchor the evening news on US Public Television. He, like Dan Rather, cut his teeth and rose in the ranks and reached the heights because of his coverage of the JFK assassination. Imagine if either one of them had questioned the pap they were forced to spew. It would have cost them, no doubt. Ironically, it's Dan Rather's voice that follows, falsely saying that Marina told police that Oswald owned a gun matching the murder weapon.
Then, it comes to the most important thing in the video. A reporter asks Oswald, "Did you order that rifle?" There's silence for a second, and then some mumbling, and then we hear Oswald say, "...that you people have been given, but I emphatically deny these charges."
Now obviously, that is an incomplete sentence, and the first part of it was lost. Did Oswald answer the reporter's question? Consider how quickly he could have said, "No." I bet you they cut that out. We probably had Oswald on tape denying that he ordered the rifle.
I find it interesting that after Oswald was hustled away, the reporter said that Oswald said that he "committed no acts of violence." That's a very formal denial, and I have to assume that the reporter put it that way because Oswald put it that way. And yet, we don't hear Oswald saying it, ourselves. So, I have to wonder to what extent Oswald's voice recordings were edited, abridged, etc.
It's at 5:30 that Oswald seems to stop and talk to someone and with very keen interest. And it's surprising how it stopped the caravan, so to speak. They literally waited until he was done saying what he had to say, though we can't make it out.
So, Oswald had something very earnest to say to somebody, and they finally had to drag him away and through the door.
Let's stay on this because I think I found something interesting. Notice that it's Detective Elmer Boyd who is handling Oswald.
But, look who was also there: Jim Leavelle. And he was wearing his Easter suit, the one he wore on Sunday. So, was this Sunday?
So, either that was Sunday, or Leavelle also wore that suit on Saturday. He definitely didn't wear it on Friday because we can see Leavelle at the Midnight Press Conference in a dark suit.
And he didn't wear on Monday either when he transferred Ruby.
The reason I am harping on this is not because of Leavelle but because of Elmer Boyd. Boyd said that he learned about the Oswald shooting while eating lunch at his in-law's house on Sunday, and he immediately excused himself and head to the DPD because he thought he could be needed. But, if this was Sunday, then it is proof that he was lying.
Now, keep in mind, I already knew that he was lying because of the image below which was taken just a few minutes after the shooting.
So, that is Boyd on the left, caught by a photographer while they were essentially hiding with Bookhout by the elevator on the 3rd floor. The man in the center is not Jack Ruby; he is FBI Agent James Bookhout. That was 12:23 or so, he Bookhout was no doubt handed off to that team of Boyd, Sims, and Hall as soon as they got him inside the jail office at 12:20. So, Boyd was definitely there, and he definitely lied when he said he wasn't. But now, we have more proof, since this was apparently even earlier on Sunday:
Here is Leavelle again in the hall.
And here he is doing an interview later on November 24 after the shooting.
So, do you think he wore the exact same clothes two days in a row? I rather doubt it. And that leads me to believe that that was Sunday.
All right, this settles it: This reporter can be heard saying: "Oswald will be transferred later today."
So, it must have been Sunday morning. They weren't saying that on Saturday morning. It's the last thing in this video, and I'll give you the link.
So now, we know for sure that it was Sunday. Therefore, we're seeing Oswald shortly before the jail transfer. And Boyd was there. He lied about being with his in-laws that morning. He was there, at the PD, and this is independent proof of it.
So, that is how his hair was laying. Now let's look at him in the transfer footage.
So, is that the same guy? I'm seeing that his ear was longer and shaped differently on the left. I'm seeing that his hair was longer and covered better without as much apparent recession as we see on the right. I am not at all sure that that guy on the right is Oswald. Let's make another comparison.
Above, the ears look very different, larger and longer on the left. On the right, his ear looks very small. On the right, the nose looks shorter, stubbier. On the right, his face looks fuller, less gaunt. I am not at all sure that these two are the same man.
