Yes, he was out of the building within minutes and then he was out of the city 20 minutes later.

Uh, Oak Cliff is still in the city of Dallas.

As I said, the jacket is a rock solid piece of evidence. If a defence team were permitted to carry on about it , all they could do would be to do just as you have done; pound the table and yell like hell.

Would you care to explain what a jacket allegedly found in a parking lot (whether it was Oswald's or not) is rock solid evidence of?

You have no idea whether I'm manipulating the sentence or not.

Maybe the person responsible for the transcription accidentally manipulated the sentence by placing a period where a comma should be.

Regardless, Whaley is not saying that the police were railroading Oswald.

I happen to agree with your interpretation, but the statement is ambiguous and could be interpreted either way.

Is this somehow supposed to be your proof that Secret Service agents were at the library?

But if Earlene Roberts said Oswald was wearing a jacket and Johnny Brewer said he wasn't, then you can take those statements to the bank.

I have no idea what was going through Lee's mind.

Having the cab go past the rooming house before getting out made a ton of sense.

Not really.  Lee didn't tell his employer where he lived.  He was living on Beckley under an assumed name.  Not even his wife knew where he was living.  Even if he thought they could have suspected him as early as 12:34 PM, why would he think they would know about the Beckley room 20 minutes later?

You'd have to ask Lee that.

Still, no harm in having the cab go past the rooming house before getting out.

"They knew what they were doing and they were trying to railroad him". ...William Whaley at a police line up on 11/23/63

These are the words of a simple cabbie.....  Whaley observed  the unfairness of the line up and recognized that Lee was being "railroaded"......when he said...."they were trying to railroad him"

Maybe Whaley's passenger got out at the 500 block of North Beckley because that's where he was going.  Or even south of there as Whaley mentioned he was angled south when he got out of the cab.

Whaley's passenger did not get out at the 500 block.  The passenger gave the 500 block of North Beckley as the destination when he entered the cab, but once the cab passed the rooming house, the passenger told Whaley to stop and he exited the cab a couple blocks short of the original destination (and about three blocks past the rooming house).
