Let's not forget the omni present Captain Westbrook, the personnel officer, who happened to be filmed at the Tippit scene looking at a wallet held by a police man and who asked FBI agent Barrett if he had ever heard of Oswald or Hidell.

That same Captain Westbrook then showed up at a parking lot where somebody (he doesn't know who) showed him a jacket under a car. The jacket is described on police radio as being white. He allegedly picks it up and gives it to another officer who he also doesn't know. Then he somehow gets the jacket, which by then amazingly had turned grey, back at the police station (from whom we don't know) where he gives it to the evidence room after first collecting markings from several officers (who were not part of the chain of custody) and forgetting to mark it himself.

That same Captain Westbrook who was too busy moving to the Texas Theater to apparently pay much attention to the jacket, yet who managed to "identify" without any difficulty the jacket in his WC testimony months later...

No, let's not forget Westbrook....

The first one at the very top of my list would be... Gerald Hill.......

Translation..There is no picture of Oswald wearing the jacket on that day.

No, I mean exactly what I said.  If you think there's any evidence that shows that Oswald wore that particular jacket, then please identify it.

  The Recollection of Capt W R Westbrook...........................



    Mr. BALL. Where were you when you heard the President had been shot?
    Mr. WESTBROOK. I was in my office and Mrs. Kinney, one of the dispatchers, came into the office and told us, and of course it's the same as everybody says--we didn't believe it until a second look at her and I realized it was so, and so, there's a little confusion right here because everybody became rather excited right quick, but somebody, and I don't know who it was, came into my office and said they needed some more men at this Texas Depository Building].
    You know, I didn't review my report before I came over here I didn't have a chance. I just came off of vacation and they hit me with this this morning as soon as I got to the office. I can't recall whether or not it was the dispatcher's office, but I think it was--somebody in the dispatcher's office had told us they needed some more men at the Texas Depository Building, so I sent the men that were in my office, which were then Sergeants Stringer and Carver, and possibly Joe Fields and McGee, if they were in there it seems like McGee was, and I think--I sent them to the building, and then I walked on down the hall spreading the word and telling the other people that they needed some men down there, and practically everybody left immediately. I sat around a while really not knowing what to do because of the--almost all of the commanding officers and supervisors were out of the city hall and I finally couldn't stand it any longer, so I started to the Texas Depository Building, and believe it or not, I walked. There wasn't a car available, and so I walked from the city hall to the Depository Building, and I would stop on the way down where there would be a group of people listening to somebody's transistor radio and I would stop and catch a few false reports, you might say, at that time, until I reached the building. After we reached the building, or after I reached the....
    ..[con't] .... so then I went into the building to help start the search and I was on the first floor.

Again there is always an anonymous "somebody told me" in every one of these police statements.
According to the police transcript, his boss [Chief Curry] ordered men not to the book building but to the railroad yards
He sends everybody out of the office not wanting at the time to go with them. Why?
Then he "sat around not knowing what to do."
A police captain didn't know what do?
There was "no car available" to a police captain?
So he goes on a leisurely stroll for one mile  from the DPD station.
President Kennedy has just been shot and he can't commandeer a ride.
He states that "I walked"..."I stopped along the way..."I caught some false reports"...what false reports?..."until I reached the building".

"After we reached the building, or after I reached the..." Oops a slip there?
Westbrook claimed that he "helped start the search".
After a supposed 20-30 minute hike to the TSBD...wasn't there a search already in progress?

Where did Westbrook really go before he went to Oak Cliff?
Captain W R Westbrook was lying...plain and simple.
