Question #1!

How soon after the shooting did Mr Howard Brennan inform police that the shots had come from the southeast window of the sixth floor?

Question #2!

How soon after the shooting did the police find the 'Sniper's Nest' at the window Mr Brennan had helpfully pointed them to?

Seymour Wietzman states here he was told the shots came from the TSBD approximately 15 minutes after hearing the shots. 12:45pm


The rifle was found at 1:22pm.



Looks like the rifle was found about 10 minutes after the alleged snipers nest. SN FOUND @1:12pm

According to Sorrels, Brennan told him about the window about 20 minutes after the assassination and that the people standing around directed him to Brennan.

Thank you, Alan ..If Howard Brennan had pointed out the SE corner window as the place where he's seen a man STANDING AND AIMING A HIGH POWERED (hunting) RIFLE then why wasn't that site discovered immediately???    I'm sure you know that Luke Mooney simply stumbled upon that site at about 1:06 pm which was about  a half hour after Brennan told the police that he's seen the 175 pound man who was dressed il light colored khaki clothing behind a window of the TSBD.  And Brennan could NOT have been referring to the SE corner window because a man could NOT have stood behind that window and aimed a rifle OUT OF THE WINDOW  so that about 85% of the rifle was visible to Howard Brennan.   The boxes stacked behind the window would have prevented any man who attempted to stand and aim a rifle from that window from doing so.....  The man would have been squeezed between the window and the boxes.....

Brennan wasn't the only person to see a rifle in the SE window.  Were all these people mistaken or lying?  Bullet casings were found by that window.  Let me guess.  No one here is alleging the evidence is faked or the product of lies.  Right?  That is just a "strawman" claim.  The evidence is all suspect but no one is responsible.  It is just so.

It is a real possibility that the conspirators had someone make a piece of steel visible, through that window and plant a few empty cases, to make it appear the shots came from there, while in reality the shot might just have passed through the window, while being fired from the building behind it. The fact that the alleged SN was part of the corner of the building allowed a shot to come in one window and out the other.

Yeah, if you count after-the-fact mentions of "projection" or "pipe thing".  Nobody, other than Euins claimed they saw their "projection" discharge.

But these other reports (if they were made at the time) make it even more incredible that the so-called "sniper's nest" wasn't located by the Keystone Kops for half an hour.

A “real” possibility? Seriously? Can you name these conspirators?

The fact any individual can post this kind of crap 56 years after the event is frightening.

One needs to look at the situation as it developed to get a better understanding of the sequence and timing of events. Brennan did not immediately run across the street and talk to ploice. Barnett (from memory) was the officer closest to the TSBD entrance and he initially went west and up Houston towards the rear of the building, trying to cover the rear and side fire escape. He returned after a minute or so. I believe he is the first officer that Brennan talked to and it was during Barnett's return to the TSBD entrance.

Many police deputies has gone towards the railyards and the instruction from the motorcade was to search there. Back at the TSBD I believe Sawyer had arrived some minutes later and after brief conversation that gave him some indication of an upper floor, took the passenger elevator with some other officers and could go no further that the 4th floor. Here he met briefly with Truly and Baker coming down on the east freight elevator from the roof. This must have been at least  five or maybe 10 minutes after the shots. Total confusion reigned. Sawyer returned to the entrance. Mooney and other sherrifs deputies (Boone, Craig, Walters, Weatherford etc) eventually headed to the TSBD and began a "ramshackle" search. It does not appear to be coordinated in any meaningful way. I do not believe Brennan's precise "shooter location" was communicated to the people undertaking the search at all. Mooney was unaware of Brennan’s observation and the SN was "stumbled" upon independently.

So you agree it is a possibility, to have a decoy SN but actually fire the shots through it, from the building behind? then this is something positive at least, this shows you guys can be brought around to face reality.

While I can't give you precise names of those conspirators on the ground, during the assassination
Walker knew who they were, he set it all up, and then took a flight to distance himself from the area as his alibi.
Right wing John Birchers un American KKK x military racist W.A.S.P's, he had a good pool to pull the shooter and spotters out from.
I have strong reasons to believe that a few under his command during service were the actual gunmen
