The more I notice a lack of brilliance anywhere. LHO was not
brilliant, rather a low-tech bare minimum sniper. The CIA was
on a training curve. The FBI was bureaucratic and dull witted.
The Secrete Service was brave but minimal. The DPD was in
slow transition from the Wild West to a modern urban policing
organization. They lost a Patrolman who evidently did not use
basic safety procedure. The DCSD was a step ahead with the
M-Squad look and DCSD Deputies seemed to do a better job
of crime scene investigation and questioning witnesses.
The DPD did locate the suspect and arrest him with no more
loss of life, but could not protect the him in transfer custody.
The situation at Police Headquarters was chaotic and unsafe.
This appalling situation would serve as a useful manual for
any future Police Department on:
”How Not to Search a Warehouse Office Building”.
"How Not to Arrest and Protect a Suspect Who Just
Murdered a National Leader”.
In DPD Chief Curry's defense he was ordered to make all the
mistakes above at Police Headquarters and stage the transfer
as a disastrous media event. Not the intent, rather a debacle
in the making. This turned out to be the perfect set-up for a
Murphy's Law fiasco.
