Larry Sabato, why do you lie and lie and lie so very much? You must be very well paid?
On p. 153, Sabato tells an easily disproven whopper:
// In 1989 the Dallas Police finally released files that showed the "three tramps" were actually unfortunate unkowns named Gus Abrams, Harold Doyle, and John Gedney . . .\\ Actually, they did no such thing, lying Larry! There were no photos to release as nobody matching the photos of the three had ever been booked, as witness what the head of the Dallas County Sheriff's Identification Division said, nobody matching those pix were ever booked [see James Kitching reference]:
http://jfk.hood.edu/Collection/Weisberg%20Subject%20Index%20Files/W%20Disk/Weisberg%20Harold/FOIA%20Requests%20Chronology/Item%2021.pdf
And the comparison of photos with those three whom disinformation specialists, such as Sabato, claim to be those in the photo:
http://www.whokilledjfk.net/tramps.htm
And a Youtube video of the present-day Doyle, clearly claiming they were booked six days for vagrancy, thus contradicting the official story [booked for vagrancy, then released]:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dG5EJwTypoM

And neither Sabato, the liar, nor Bugliosi, the liar, ever has any photos of their booking as, James Kitching stated, they were NEVER BOOKED - - PERIOD!
And Fletcher Prouty's more truth-based video:

[So clearly, those whom Sabato and Bugliosi claim to be the pictured fellows, those three hobos actually booked that day, aren't the ones in the photos. End of story, but the beginning of the TRUTH . . . .
The book is strewn with endless misinformation and disinformation, and later Sabato will actually cite Hugh Aynesworth, another notorious liar - - please see my comments on him at the review of his drivel, November 22, 1963 Witness to History. [Sabato actually claims or writes as if quoting this, that Oswald scored well on rifle marksmanship, when he was actually penciled in at marksman level, the lowest qualifying category, Sabato indicates he scored in the lower level of sharpshooter, the next highest category, but even if that were true, it is still mediocre, and insufficient for the assassination shooting!!!! But then, Sabato has never been in the military, especially not in the USMC.] And according to Sabato, pretty much all the witnesses were making stuff up as they went along???? Yet basically no mention of Chief Curry, other then the obligatory several sentences: it was the chief who said that Oswald could never be placed at the scene of the crime! Completely douchey writing.
