The men were NOT wearing suits during the lineups.  Posting the above image (a Warren Commission exhibit meant only to identify the participants) in the context which you have is dishonesty at best.  But hey, if it makes ya feel better.....

You were there? BTW-- The suit picture is in the Warren Report. Go split a hair...they were cops! The line up was "dishonest".

Bill is correct they took off their coats and ties.

However,

Perry put on a brown sport coat that he got from the homicide office.

Clark was wearing a white shirt and put on a red vest that he got from the homicide office.

Ables was wearing a white shirt and gray knit sweater.

They were not dressed like Oswald or like any of the witness descriptions.

OK but..they still looked like cops. Did Oswald look like a cop? Hardly.
A fair line-up would have been to take [let's say 4] prisoners from county that were similar in appearance..height...weight... hair etc and lined them up with Oswald. You would have had a different outcome and everyone knows it.

Yep, the lineups were biased and unfair in pretty much every way possible.

Unrelated to your mistaken notion that the lineup participants were wearing suit and tie.

No, not everyone.....  There are some who refuse to open their eyes .....they prefer to see the mental image of their imagination.

On a serious note Walt, how are you?  I understand you had a health scare recently.

I'm doing OK....Thank you.   I've been diagnosed with prostate cancer.   The treatments I'm taking have side effects that are not pleasant .   I only mention this because i'm sure there are other old men in the group that may benefit from my experience.

But let's keep it private.....  Use PM
