That’s not true. Brennan gave a reasonably close description at the scene.

What description did Mr Brennan give at the scene, Mr Collins?

Here are just some of the fine, honest and totally uncorrupt people Mr Oswald was up against

'Not a racist'
But some of those who knew Wade say the truth is more complicated than Watkins' summation. "My father was not a racist. He didn't have a racist bone in his body," said Kim Wade, a lawyer in his own right. "He was very competitive."
There are some things I would say about Henry Wade..competitive ...isn't one of them. I would say a soul of granite is more like it.
Henry Wade gave lectures to his assistants ---Avoid picking black jurists... avoid picking women jurists... but especially avoid picking black women jurists. No ...he wasn't a racist ::)

That’s not true. Brennan gave a reasonably close description at the scene. And singled out LHO at the lineup later that evening as looking like the gunman. (And that’s what I said that you disagreed with.)

“Reasonably close”? It was the wrong height, wrong weight, wrong age, and wrong clothing to be Oswald. He also had no reasonable way to estimate those things for a person “taking aim” for the last shot, who would necessarily be crouched down behind boxes.

You'll notice that the behavior of Brennan - e.g., not immediately identifying the shooter as Oswald - is evidence that calls into question his credibility but the behavior of Oswald that calls into question his credibility or innocence is always dismissed. Always meaning: always.

Question his credibility all you like — just don’t pretend that’s evidence of murder.

It was reasonably close given the circumstances. And he saw him while waiting for the motorcade to arrive from the waist up.

The one that Sawyer broadcast over the DPD radio about 12:44.

Really? The one where Insp. Sawyer says the witness cannot give a clothing description? The one that leads Insp. Sawyer to mention there is uncertainty as to whether the suspect under description was "there in the first place"? That one?

No, the uncertainty part was concerning Charles Givens. They put out a description of Givens because they were trying to locate him.
