I've started this thread under Crime Scene because I think it's the only place it fits. I have the H*****y C*****l DVD set "The JFK Collection" which includes "JFK:3 shots that changed America". I bought it solely for this particular documentary after reading an Amazon review that said it had lots of raw footage of the scrum at the DPD. As such it is compulsive viewing.

One thing that struck me from the moment I started seriously studying the assassination were the scenes of Lee being dragged from pillar to post through corridors crammed with newsmen. To this viewer, it just seemed plain wrong.

To allow those people to virtually "occupy" the building whilst a suspect in a murder case was under investigation violates every tenet of impartial justice.

No reason is acceptable for this to have been allowed, full stop. The "we wanted to show the media we weren't mistreating him" argument is nonsense. By showing him, no parading him like a show pony, they were mistreating him.

This was deliberate, and so whilst not contrived directly by the DPD was most likely suggested by someone who had it suggested to them by someone...and so on up to the architects.

The deviation from routine DPD booking procedures and the relaxation of security around the accused party, particularly with regards to access granted to the press, began many hours prior to Oswald having been charged with the crime of assassinating the president. My sources from that era tell me that "...within the DPD the vast majority of cops believed that Oswald killed a police officer, but had yet to link him--even in their own minds--to the assassination."

 

My sources told me that the notion "We wanted to show the media we weren't mistreating him..." was more based on previous accusations that the DPD mistreated those prisoners who were believed to have injured (or in this case killed) a fellow police officer. Oftentimes prisoners who were suspected of hurting a DPD officer would later turn up badly bruised or banged up as a result of officer misconduct at the precinct AFTER they arrived back at the station. This growing "open to the press" culture, in such cases, certainly posed a convenient opportunity for the co-conspirators.

On one level it was a form of Roman triumph -- a blood and circus in which the evil foe is paraded through, in this case, the Infernal City in preparation for his execution.  At which point accounts are settled, blood lust is sated, and life can return to abnormal.

Shouldnt Brians "The media circus was part of the plot" and discussions of "Operation Mockingbird" be under the same heading?

No.

 

Operation Mockingbird is the CIA's infiltration of the media through penetration or recruitment for the purpose of influencing the content of the stories being written. Brian's topic is focused on the DPD's breach of normal protocol regarding the media being granted access to the suspect. Two entirely different subjects.

Thanks Greg. As I explained, I thought carefully before choosing the topic heading. But it didn't really take much thought. If you accept that "the crime" encompasses the killings of JFK, Lee Oswald and JD Tippit, then obviously I'm discussing one of three crime scenes.

Of course I wouldn't be Brian (or Alex Hidell ☺) if I didn't have a rant, and my rant postulated that the DPD building became the scene of what I consider a crime before it became the scene of what everyone knows was a crime.

Ps, Staffan, this post may answer a question I'm about to pose you on Facebook!
