So reduce his waiting time to 15 secs. Once he realised he was exposed like a shag on a rock outside the rooming house he knew he needed to get out of that area altogether. He had three choices really;
1. go back inside and wait to be arrested
2. continue to wait for a bus with the risk of a patrol car racing toward him or
3. hot foot it out of the area until he could find a place to hid and form a plan.

What would be the difference between options two and three.... in both cases he is out in the open on the street. If a police car can spot him at the bus stop, they can also do so when he is walking down the street, right?

And then there is this... The bus he was waiting for was driving North, so we must assume that he wanted to go North. So why suddenly walk South instead?

I think it's the CTs that need to take his state of mind into account. I'm encouraged to see that you at least are aware of what it might mean regarding his decision making.


Anyway, I owe I owe so off to work I go

Thanks for making my point!

Burroughs was an idiot so save that red herring for another thread.

Well, that's convenient.  I can do that too.  Roberts was an idiot.  Markham was an idiot.  Bledsoe was an idiot.  Whaley was an idiot.

Who waits for 30 secs then leaves? A man in a hurry who is concerned that his address might already be known to the FBI through the rooming house phone number.

Why would such a man wait even 30 seconds at a bus stop next to that address?

I'd say he wanted to get away from his rooming house asap and he only returned to get his gun. If a bus pulled up I think he would have got on regardless of where it was going. Maybe he would have gone just a few stops then got off just so long as he wasn't standing next to the rooming house. If only he'd not given that phone number to Marina and Ruth he'd could have made better plans.

Now you're getting somewhere. That's why he hightailed it.

Unfortunately, there is ZERO evidence that he got a gun at the boarding house -- or even had a gun at the boarding house.

Then why stand around at the bus stop at all?

From Fritz

I asked him where he went to when he left work, and he told me that he had a room on 1026 North Beckley, that he went over there and changed his trousers and got his pistol and went to the picture show. I asked him why he carried his pistol, and he remarked, "You know how boys do when they have a gun, they just carry it."

To see if he could spot a bus heading his way.

He couldn't do that while he was "hightailing"?
