General Discussion & Debate / Re: Lee Oswald The Cop Killer
« Last post by Gary Craig on Today at 05:01:08 PM »
Ted Callaway testified that after hearing the five gun shots, he ran out to the sidewalk on Patton.  This was a little over a half block south of the shooting scene.  Callaway saw a man (who he later identified as Oswald) cutting across Patton as he (Oswald) made his way south on Patton (towards Callaway's position).  Callaway hollered out to the man  as the man continued south on Patton past Callaway's position.  Callaway testified that the man was running and holding a gun.  Callaway saw the man head west on Jefferson (the same direction as the theater).

Once the man turned west onto Jefferson, Callaway ran a "good hard run" up to the corner of Tenth and Patton.  Callaway, noticing the stopped patrol car, went to the car and saw the officer (Tippit) lying dead in the street.  Callaway said the first thing he did was to grab the police car radio and report the shooting.  He said he didn't know if anyone had reported it yet, so he decided to report it himself.

To recap, Callaway hears the shots.  Runs to the sidewalk.  Sees the gunman run south on Patton the entire block from Tenth to Jefferson.  Runs the two-thirds of a block up to the shooting scene.  Goes over to the police car and the first thing he does is grab the radio and report the shooting to the police dispatcher.

How much time do you believe passed from the time Callaway heard the shots to the time he reported the shooting on the police radio?

Let's say two minutes pass from the time Oswald shoots Tippit to the time Oswald turns the corner from Patton onto Jefferson.  This is a little over one block and Oswald was running.

Let's say it takes Callaway one minute when he made the "good hard run" the two-thirds of a half block from his location to the patrol car.

If these two time estimates are anywhere close to being correct, then Callaway is at the patrol car roughly three minutes after the shots rang out.  Let's add another full minute for error.  So we have Callaway at the patrol car using the police radio about four minutes after the shots rang out.

Here's the thing... Callaway's report to the dispatcher while using the patrol car radio took place at 1:19/1:20.

Do the math and work it backwards.  At 1:19/1:20, Callaway makes the call.  If four minutes have passed (and that's being generous, in my opinion) since the shots rang out, then the shots rang out around 1:15.

=================================

"The number 2 man in the line up that I saw at City Hall is the man I saw with the gun in his hand." -- Ted Callaway (Affidavit, 11/22/63)

"Do the math and work it backwards.  At 1:19/1:20, Callaway makes the call.  If four minutes have passed (and that's being generous, in my opinion) since the shots rang out, then the shots rang out around 1:15."

So Bill. Using your assumed timeline, and I think it's pretty accurate, then we can also make the assumption that the shooter was approached by Tippet at approximately 1:13pm. Keeping in mind that there was a discussion between the shooter and Tippet that maybe took a minute, maybe more, and then there was the actual shooting that maybe took 15 to 30 seconds. So if Tippets car approached the shooter at 1:13PM, the REAL question would be could Oswald have been able to walk from the rooming house to the shooting scene by 1:13PM. Given what the housekeeper gave as the time that Oswald left the rooming house, I'm not so sure that he could have made it to the scene in that amount of time on foot alone.

Yes, I don't read that letter as an approval.  It appears to be just reiterating what he was told in Mexico City.  That he has to the get a visa from the Soviets before the Cubans will do anything.  That makes it all the more curious if, just three days later, they granted his visa without an approval for a visa from the Russians.  It seems odd that whatever is the basis of the claim that his visa was approved - as referenced in a number of places - it is so difficult to locate.
Right, but the intriguing thing to me is that they processed his application. Why not just throw it away? He's viewed as a crank, an oddball that they wanted nothing to do with. And then they sent it on? Mirabal signed off on it; and he said that he thought Oswald might have been a "provocateur" sent to cause problems.

As to finding it: again, it would be given contingent on him presenting a Soviet visa. He shows them his Soviet visa and they give him a transit visa.

But our conspiracy friends can answer all of this: it wasn't Oswald. It was a double. Two Oswalds, two rifles, two Zapruder films (at least), two gunmen, two autopsies.....it never ends.

Oswald ordered a C20-T750.

If we assume that Oswald is indeed Hidell, then, yes he did.

That was Klein's catalogue number for a Carcano packaged with a scope.

Again, correct, but not complete. The devil is in the details. The order coupon (as well as the envelope) were addressed to Dept. 358, which told Klein's that the order coupon came from the February 1963 issue of American Rifleman, in which the 36" MC rifle was advertised.

Klein's had no reason to send a 40" rifle which were not even advertised until April 1963.
Thanks for the them clarification.

Yes, I agree with that. However, after learning more details about the covert war between Cuba and the U.S. during the fall of 1963, I believe there is credible evidence that Castro at least suspected that LHO might take a shot at JFK on 11/22/63. And in keeping with the idea of an open mind, I don’t want to exclude that possibility. The evidence suggests that LHO conceived and implemented his plan without outside help. And that the opportunity did, by chance, fall into his lap. And I do believe that it is feasible that LHO actually did threaten to kill JFK while leaving the Cuban Consulate in Mexico City as reported. And if so, it is reasonable to believe that the DGI agents probably would have tracked LHO to Dallas, TX, even if only for surveillance.

I think it is possible that Oswald vowed to commit some violent act to convince the Cubans of his sincerity to the cause.  I doubt, however, that it involved a direct threat to JFK since Oswald would have had no way to know the opportunity would ever arise at the time he was in Mexico City.  It would not have been until the week of the assassination that he would have any clue that opportunity would present itself.  And he made no apparent effort after returning to the US to track down JFK.  He may have told them he was the one who tried to kill Walker to impress them with his dedication.  The Cubans likely thought he was a nut or some type of CIA plant.  After the assassination, they would be reluctant to admit that Oswald made any threat for fear it would be used against them as pretext for linking them to Oswald in a plan to assassinate JFK.   So they did some CYA.  I doubt Oswald's visit to Mexico City - even if he made promises to commit violent acts - would rise to the level of anything told to Castro before the assassination.

.Lyrics - The Boy in the Bubble...

It’s every generation throws a hero up the pop charts
Medicine is magical and magical is art
Thinking of the Boy in the Bubble

And the baby with the baboon heart

And I believe
These are the days of lasers in the jungle
Lasers in the jungle somewhere
Staccato signals of constant information
a loose affiliation of millionaires
And billionaires, and baby

These are the days of miracle and wonder

This is the long-distance call
The way the camera follows us in slo-mo
The way we look to us all, oh yeah
The way we look to a distant constellation
That’s dying in a corner of the sky
These are the days of miracle and wonder
And don’t cry baby don’t cry
Don’t cry, don’t cry ....

Based on Evidence He Acted as Agent of U.S. Subsidiary in Carrying Out Bribery Scheme
Overview
In November, a jury sitting in the U.S. District Court for the District for Connecticut convicted Lawrence Hoskins, a former senior executive with the French power and transportation company Alstom S.A. (“Alstom”), on a number of Foreign Corrupt Practices Act charges. The charges were brought against Hoskins in connection with his involvement in a scheme to bribe Indonesian government officials to secure a $118 million contract for Alstom’s U.S. subsidiary at the time, Alstom Power, Inc. (“Alstom-US”).

Hoskins’ case raised important questions regarding the jurisdictional reach of the FCPA over individuals who are not U.S. persons, such as foreign executives of multinational companies residing abroad. Hoskins, a UK national, did not travel to the U.S. while the bribery scheme was ongoing, did not personally engage in any criminal conduct on U.S. soil, and only communicated with U.S.-based conspirators by phone and email from France. The Department of Justice had initially brought charges against Hoskins based on three independent theories of liability: (1) Hoskins allegedly acted as an “agent” of Alstom-US in violating the FCPA;....

..A few days ago, Hoskins moved for a judgment of acquittal on all counts or, in the alternative, a new trial, which means the case might still not be over for Hoskins. In the meantime however, the definition of agency adopted by the trial court in Hoskins leaves plenty of room for prosecutors in the Second Circuit to present a factual case to a U.S. jury to impose U.S. criminal liability on individual executives even if they are not U.S. persons, do not act in the U.S., and are not controlled or supervised by the U.S. company engaging in the alleged bribery scheme.

An additional wrinkle is that in an opinion issued earlier this year, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois in United States v. Firtash et al., held that “controlling Seventh Circuit case law declines to impose the requirement recognized [by the Second Circuit] in Hoskins” that foreign nationals acting outside the U.S. can only be charged with FCPA violations “if they are agents, employees, officers, directors, or shareholders of an American issuer or domestic concern.” On the basis of this holding, the court refused to dismiss charges for conspiracy and aiding and abetting FCPA violations brought against both defendants even though they were foreign nationals who had never visited the U.S. in the course of the alleged bribery scheme. In other words, the court in Firtash rejected even the modest narrowing adopted by the Second Circuit in Hoskins. The Firtash decision has thus created the possibility of a split amongst the U.S. Courts of Appeals on the extent of the extraterritorial application of the FCPA, which may cause the issue to be taken up by the U.S. Supreme Court in the future........

Laying the Groundwork

The recent uptick in FCPA trials should not come as a surprise; U.S. Department of Justice (“DOJ”) officials have over the past few years emphasized their increased emphasis on individual liability, stressing the importance of holding individuals who engage in white collar crimes equally as accountable as those who commit other crimes. DOJ’s FCPA Unit Chief stated in 2014 that DOJ is “very focused” on prosecuting individuals and companies, because “going after one or the other is not sufficient for deterrence purposes.” In 2015, DOJ issued new guidance (subsequently known as the “Yates Memo”) prioritizing holding individuals accountable for corporate wrongdoing. Moreover, the change in presidential administration did not result in a philosophical shift by DOJ when it came to individual accountability: in a November 2018 speech by then-Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein (available here), DOJ made clear its continued belief that “[t]he most effective deterrent to corporate criminal misconduct is identifying and punishing the people who committed the crimes.”.....
