28. "false certainty"
Edited on Tue Apr-08-08 04:50 AM by k-robjoe
You talk about false certainty. Yet it seems you are the one who is certain. Even so certain that you dont seem to recognize the words "confusing", "need to read more", "according to this".

My position is that I need to know more about the case. And your position, which seems to me like "fossilized" certainty, does not tempt me.

"Don Schulman, the only eyewitness to correctly see that Robert Kennedy had sustained three bullet wounds, not two, saw this guard pull his gun and ostensibly fire back at Sirhan, Thane Cesar's bow tie, knocked off and lying near Bobbie Kennedy as he died, seems to have been in the exact spot where the gun needed to be located that delivered the fatal bullet moving up and forward into Kennedy's brain: pressed up tight to Kennedy's back right side, and neck high."

"Smith quotes RFK assassination witness Don Schulman who originally stated he saw a man shoot Kennedy from behind. He does not inform his readers that, in the mid-70s, Schulman was questioned by Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Special Counsel Thomas Kranz, who had been appointed to independently investigate the assassination of RFK. Schulman told Kranz that immediately following the shooting he was 'tremendously confused' and that the words he used to describe the shooting to reporters in 1968 were the result of 'confusion'. Schulman stated that he meant to tell reporters that, "Kennedy had been hit three times, he had seen an arm fire, he had seen the security guards with guns, but he had never seen a security guard fire and hit Robert Kennedy.""

But then again this reminds me of this recording, that I came across a couple of years ago :

"This is the official LAPD audio tape of the lie detector test given to witness Sandy Serrano who claimed she saw a woman in a polka dot dress running from the Robert Kennedy assassination exclaiming "We shot him"."
