Oh, yes you did. I only wrote, "parade speed," and attached the value of 15mph, which is what Greer testified to and is supported by film of other motorcades. You decided that I musta meant some kind of "protocol." And then you demanded proof of a "protocol" that I never claimed.
 
Again, ~15mph (I'll put in a tilde to clairify this time) is the speed attested to by Greer and supported by film of other motorcades. The important part is that it's so slow that the turns wouldn't in themselves significantly affect the limos speed, if they slowed it down at all.
The whole trip downtown wasn't needed, either. As I've said elsewhere, if the priority was to minimize the President's exposure, they would have avoided the CBD and taken Westbound Mockingbird to Hairy Heiney and thence directly to the Trade Mart.

What Greer testified to doesn't mean that this is correct. Greer should have accelerated upon hearing the first shot, but he didn't. Greer should NOT have slowed to either a near stop or a stop, but he did. He is hardly a reliable source for this topic.

Stop trying to take attention from the fact that those two turns were NOT needed and were only added to make the killing of JFK much easier. LHO could not add the UNNECESSARY turns.

Meant to ask this before, just for giggles: how do you tell a steel-jacketed bullet from a copper-jacketed one? Yes, it's kind of a  trick question.

Wow, so you think trained police investigators and a former general cannot tell the difference? 🤔

Yeah..why not ask the cop that made the report?

Walker was involved in J.F.K's death and this staged shooting out at his house was designed to make him look like a victim in it all
Walker did hate Kennedy. That shooting was perhaps unrelated to a JFK assassination plot unless somehow it was necessary for any other patsy [as well as Oswald] to be implicated...then perhaps that guy would have been charged with the Walker shooting.
There was probably a list of communists from all over Dallas to choose from...just have them in the right place.

An assassination attempt would have ultimately still happened at some time and place.

Not what I asked. I asked how you, "trained police investigators" or General Walker, can tell a steel jacketed bull[et] from a copper jacketed one?

Greer drove the limo. He is the direct source for how fast it was driven, and there is enough film of it being driven slowly down the street in other motorcades to back him up.

You haven't proven that. If anything, you've demonstrated how much your thinking works backwards.

Even Walker knew..............
Quote
Mr. LIEBELER. But I want to know.
General WALKER. That suggests a possible relationship. I think the fact that Rubenstein shot Oswald suggests plenty. I am convinced he couldn't have shot him except for one basic reason, and maybe many others, but to keep him quiet. That is what shooting people does. I think the whole city of Dallas is very interested. I would be interested in the information on a Professor Wolf, William T. Wolf.

Apparently someone did have a real beef with General Walker.
Co-testifying with Walker was General Clyde Watts
Quote
General WATTS. He truly professes to feeling very friendly to General Walker. I have never confronted him with the fact that the investigators have a tape recording that he was anxious to get a shot at Walker for $5,000, but I am still suspicious that Duff knows something that he hasn't told.
General WALKER. It is certainly true, to further my counsel statement, that Duff certainly lived in the area of night clubs and beer joints and so forth, and he could still know something and not be involved himself.
General WATTS. Yes.
Ignoring this, the Commission goons still relied on the Marina yarn and various scraps of drivel and pegged Oswald with some senseless shooting.
