Again:
If the clocks used by the dispatchers were more than a minute or two off of official time, then his time and station check at 12:30 would have been off accordingly. It wasn’t.

What do you mean with "it wasn't"... to make that determination one needs a rock solid time source to make the comparision with.

You seem to assume that the "official time" was indeed exactly accurate.

Do you believe that the clocks magically got off between the 12:30 time check and the time of Tippit’s shooting?


I am not even sure that the 12:30 time check was exactly accurate.

With the margin of two minutes ahead or behind the "official time" and without even knowing if that "official time" was in fact 100% accurate, how in the world can anybody claim that the recording, made by a voice activated system, of the dispatcher saying 1:16 is 100% accurate?

Compelling combined circumstantial evidence suggests it wasn't!

Again, Bowles’ words from the Larry Sneed interview:

“There was one clock in the office that had a generally reliable time. It was on the back wall of the telephone room.”

Again:

A master clock on the telephone room wall was connected to the City Hall system. This clock reported "official" time.

What does "connected to the city hall system" even mean?  When was the "city hall system" synchronized with any authoritative standard, and which one, and how?  Bowles doesn't say.  Furthermore, Bowles specifically says that the dispatcher didn't use this "master clock".

Who says the 12:30 time check was accurate?

"Generally reliable" is a generally useless description.

There is absolutely no evidence that the document in question was an evidence list of items turned over to the FBI on 11/22 or that it was even written on 11/22.  Or even that CE637 is a 3x5 card.

Dear John,  I'm sorry that you'll have to find someone who knows elementary arithmetic , so you will be able to scale a photo of CE 637 and determine that the card measures 3 inches by five inches....  You'll notice in his testimony Detective Studebaker said that hey were using 1 inch wide "Magic Mending tape"

Mr. BALL. But you did dust it and lift some print?
Mr. STUDEBAKER. Yes.
Mr. BALL. When you say you taped it, what did you do, cover it with some paper?
Mr. STUDEBAKER. We have - it's like a Magic Mending Tape, only we use it just strictly for fingerprinting.
Mr. BALL. Let's stick with the paper.
Mr. STUDEBAKER. Well, on the paper I put a piece of 1 inch tape over it - I'm sure I did.
Mr. BALL. After you dusted the print, you put a 1 inch tape over it?
Mr. STUDEBAKER. Yes, sir.

Now, since it's very easy to measure the tape in a photo of CE 637.... Anybody with a middle school education can scale the photo to determine the dimensions of the index card.

Studebaker didn't take this alleged lift.

Duh!.... Who said that he did?....   I merely determined the tape they were using was 1 inch wide....  I'm sorry that you'll have to find someone to scale a photo of CE 637 and use the 1 inch width of the tape to determine that the card is 3 inches by  5 inches.
