Format: Hardcover
Gary Savage has added new fuel to the fire with this publication. In addition to the great photos, many previously unseen, the folks who "hit the ground running" on 11/22/63 add new insight into the type of character Lee Harvey Oswald was. I particularly enjoyed some of the "in passing" things that were said about Oswald (i.e., hair pulling, flippant attitude, etc.) after his arrest and have since added them to my own Oswald file for future reference. It appears that the DPD did have enough physical evidence to secure a conviction, but I'm sure the conspiracy theorists will beg to differ. All in all, JFK FIRST DAY EVIDENCE is an excellent reference and sort of vindicates the work of the DPD, even though their work became tarnished when they threw Oswald to the wolves that Sunday morning.

Format: Hardcover
Evidence gathered within hours or shortly after a crime is committed is the most reliable. Physical evidence, eyewitness statements, and the recollections of investigating police all go toward the overall "brief of evidence" which determines whether a matter is to go to Court or if further investigation is required. Gary Savage shows us this "First Day Evidence" - not tainted by time, memory loss or fabrication. The evidence from the Book Depository as it was collected on 22 November 1963 is presented in a clear, concise and chronological way. Along with many photographs not previously published and taken by Dallas Police as a result of their evidence gathering, this is an excellent book that dispels the myths that have been perpetuated over the past 3 decades, and shows that had Oswald not been shot by Jack Ruby - that the Dallas police had more than enough evidence to have Oswald convicted "beyond a reasonable doubt" in any trial that would have been forthcoming.

In the decades since November 22, 1963, the conspiracy
theorists have succeeded in convincing a large majority of the American people that the conclusions of the Warren Commission were incorrect, i.e. either Oswald didn't do it, or there was some major conspiracy, possibly involving other gunmen. However, there have been those, such as authors Norman Mailer and Gus Russo who started out as believers in the conspiracy, but being open minded, decided to took at the hard evidence again. This led them, and many others, to finally realize that Oswald was the lone gunman and probably acted on his own initiative. Oswald's brother, Robert, also accepts the hard evidence as proving that Lee Oswald was guilty.
For those who want to take a fresh look at the hard evidence, this book is a good place to start. This is the evidence that the Dallas Police Department collected ON THE FIRST DAY, at the scene of the JFK and Tippit murders. This evidence goes beyond what the Warren Commission saw and strengthens its case. The 1993 PBS television show "Frontline-Who was Lee Harvey Oswald" interviewed the authors and then presented photographs of the rifle to fingerprint analyst Vincent Scalice. He concluded beyond a shadow of a doubt that the fingerprints on the rifle handle were indeed those of Oswald. Before this time, palm prints had been lifted from the rifle, but the prints remained behind in Dallas while the rifle was sent to Washington, leading some to claim that a clear chain of evidence had been broken.
This is only one sample of the multitude of evidence presented against Oswald.
I strongly recommend this book for those who want a good grounding in the hard facts of this case in which to scrutinize the claims of those who are purveying the conspiracy theories fantasies.
