Gus Rose
« on: October 14, 2019, 03:03:09 PM »
Here’s a quote from Gus Rose that is the introduction of his interview in “No More Silence” by Larry Sneed. This speaks volumes to me. I can’t help but believe that if Oswald had lived to stand trial, and a jury had witnessed this description, it would have been very persuasive in helping to confirm that she believed the rifle was still there (until that moment).

“I could see what I believed was the imprint of a rifle. Though it may have been partly suggestive, something was there that made me think there was a rifle there. When I picked it up, it fell limp across my arm empty. At that point, Marina let out an audible gasp. I turned and looked at her and noticed that she was wide-eyed and pale. I thought for a moment that she might be about to faint. I now believe that at that point, with the rifle not being there, the full realization had soaked in . . .”

“Though it may have been partly suggestive”. LOL. It was completely suggestive.

Not sure how Marina’s alleged gasp would help a jury determine who shot Kennedy though.

The reason he said partly suggestive is because Marina had just told him that the rifle was there.

No, Marina told him nothing of the kind. "Translator" Ruth Paine did..

These are Gus’ words from that interview:

“With that, Marina came into the room, and I asked her some questions which were interpreted by Ruth Paine. Knowing that a rifle had been discovered on the sixth floor of the Book Depository right after the assassination, I asked her, “Does your husband own a rifle?” When she responded that he did, I asked, “Can you show it to me?” She said yes and motioned for me to follow her, which I did into the kitchen part of the house. She opened a door leading to the garage and pointed to a blanket which was rolled up and said, “That’s his rifle.””

Ruth wasn’t aware of the rifle at that point in time. So, it appears to me that Marina must have pointed it out.

It's always been real hard for me to believe that Ruth didn't know there was a rifle stored in her garage.

Yes, unless you have something better than Marina gasping.

... the fact that she gasped at all speaks for itself. Try to figure it out.
