The threat would be the implied threat that things will go much harder in court unless you play ball like your partner is...

Can't speak for Australian legal system but in the US, 90% of criminal convictions result from a plea bargained guilty plea. If cops couldn't use, every day, the implied threat that things will go much harder in court unless suspect play ball (and if police can lie about a dead person being alive they can certainly lie about an accomplice being cooperative), the criminal justice system would grind to a halt.

Greg, perhaps people may sort of discount all of the interesting facts you point out about the people around Oswald in Dallas because they already suspect LBJ and his Texas cronies.
If the LBJ set was involved, whether or not Johnson himself was involved in murder plot, it makes sense that the Dallas ambush only happened after (if reports are to believed) prior related plots that fall in Miami, Tampa and Chicago fell through.

Just as serial killers tend to be pretty decent to their neighbors, I doubt the Texans wanted Kennedy killed so close to home if they could have helped it.

Consideration should be given to greater external transparency of plea bargaining, even simply introducing a register to keep track of when these deals occur. In accordance with Charlie Bezzina’s discussion of the Mokbel plea bargain in Victoria, “these deals are an essential tool in saving court time and costs, but … closer scrutiny needs to be applied to these matters”. It would be a significant achievement to see informed and considered changes to plea bargaining across Australian criminal jurisdictions.
http://theconversation.com/plea-bargains-and-the-efficiencies-of-justice-8440
My key concern is hinted at in this story - that it can be misused and misapplied to, in some case, favor certain individuals, or in other cases, to scare someone into accepting a plea bargain rather than risk a maximum penalty, even though they are innocent (or at least cannot be proven guilty beyond reasonable doubt). It's a Game Show version of justice... pick a door...

While ever untold and largely unaccounted for billions are ploughed into phony wars and intelligence agency programs, the cost saving imperative when it comes to justice, education and health services will never wash with me.

It's far more complex than "LBJ and/or his cronies did it". They certainly had nothing to do with the MC shenanigans for example.

Thanks Hasan,

I honestly wasn't fishing for a compliment. I was just a bit puzzled by the seeming lack of any interest in these areas.

But then, when you see 10,000 replies to a thread about 2 pixels being a police cap in the bushes, I guess I shouldn't be at all surprised! Sleep

From Jesse Curry's book(1969(

By mid-evening I was concerned that every attempt be made to see that
Oswald's civil rights were not being violated. I escorted Louis Nichols,
president of the Dallas Bar Association, into the jail to confer with the
prisoner. Oswald at that time spurned an offer by the Dallas Bar
Association for legal assistance, but Mr. Nichols did discuss Oswald's right
for legal council with him. Oswald indicated that he wanted Attorney
John Abt of New York City to defend him. If that failed his second
choice would have been a member of the American Civil Liberties Union.
Oswald seemed well informed of his rights and had definite ideas about
how he would seek legal council. Attorney Louis Nichols left completely
satisfied that Oswald had not been denied council and that his civil rights
were not being violated.

Bart, this is more accurate:

By mid-evening Saturday I was concerned that every attempt be made to convince the media that Oswald's civil rights were not being violated. I escorted Louis Nichols, president of the Dallas Bar Association, into the jail to confer with the prisoner. even though the same was not done for Civil Liberties lawyers the previous night. Oswald at that time spurned an offer by the Dallas Bar Association for legal assistance. Not surprising really because what Oswald needed was the Crininal Bar Association - not the Civil Bar! But Mr. Nichols did discuss Oswald's right for legal council with him. Oswald indicated that he wanted Attorney John Abt of New York City to defend him. Abt had been recommended to Oswald by Prof. Chuck Webster sometime after Oswald shot his mouth off to the press that he wanted legal help, causing a mini panic among my men. It seemed only right that we offer the little commie the legal counsel for the communist party. If that failed his second choice would have been a member of the American Civil Liberties Union, but shucks, we told those dicks that there was "nothing to see here, boys" and they wandered off. Oswald seemed well informed of his rights and he never stopped demanding them, but we fixed that sure enough! Attorney Louis Nichols left completely satisfied that Oswald had not been denied counsel and that his civil rights were not being violated. Yes, that's right. I'm saying that a lawyer with zero criminal law or civil rights casework experience was who we let see Oswald to help convince the world Oswald was not being robbed of any rights. Nichols was a good ol' boy f'sure. Did a good job for us.

Meanwhile Fritz claims on the 23rd that an attorney from Chicago offered his services but that Oswald declined anyone besides Abt or the Dallas CLU
If I m not mistaken this telegram is nowhere to be found btw.

Oswald never declined the offer from Chicago. As it says in the document, the DPD simply never gave him the telegram because Oswald had previously expressed that he only want Abt. 

Great find, Barto! It again shows how determined they were to keep real lawyers (Nichols was a jumped up ambulance chaser) away from him.

Yep Greg,

This is far more accurate than any official document on the matter. It's a disgrace. What they did to this poor bloke is atrocious. My hope is one day in the near future we can show the rest of the sheep how this innocent man was framed by the Texas Good Ol' boys and co.

Henry Wade is to be included in this list, he was a complete asshole and had ties with Hoover and the FBI.

"Call the A.C.L.U.," he appealed to the crowd of reporters on one trip, referring to the American Civil Liberties Union, an organization known for defending civil rights. "I demand my hygienic rights," Oswald said on another trip. No one quite knew what he meant by that.

I don't understand what the DCLU (which was a local affiliate of the ACLU) were up to. I've visited clients in jail, the sheriff or chief doesn't let a lawyer in unless you're there to represent the defendant. There's no hall pass for attorney delegations on a social call. When a lawyer walks in to talk to a defendant in jail, he's his lawyer until he's replaced by the client or court by someone else, period. The first things any legitimate lawyer would do-- even a civil lawyer with no criminal experience-- 1. Tell Oswald and police (and the press) that he isn't going to say one more word without counsel being present for every interview, 2. Inform Oswald it's simply impossible for John Abt or any other non-Texas lawyer to represent him without local counsel who's a member of the Texas bar. In other words, tell him "certainly we can try to get the best defense lawyers in the country to help but you need a local lawyer to file pleadings and I'll do until we can find someone better, I'm it". Even a civil lawyer would know this much. And he'd know to immediately call the best local criminal lawyer in town and get him down there as co-counsel. That this doesn't happen is evidence that the fix was in with those Dallas lawyers.

Good point beowulf. I very much doubt Oswald would have trusted any given lawyer in Dallas. This was an extraordinary situation and the DPD were in damage control. Nichols was used to at least officially confirm that the DPD weren't denying him legal representation. I'm not sure if his visit was done because of the plea that Oswald gave in the midnight press conference. In any case I'm sure he'd thought he'd have his day in court but that was never going to happen. Nichols was a good old boy Dallas lawyer. He wasn't going to get in the way of the DPD. Oswald was intentionally isolated. No one came forward to help him. You're absolutely right about that. The fix was most definitely on.

Spot On, anyone who thinks otherwise is delusional in my view, he was set up and all the hall marks of that set up are in plain sight for those who choose to see.

There's no hall pass for attorney delegations on a social call. When a lawyer walks in to talk to a defendant in jail, he's his lawyer until he's replaced by the  client or court by someone else,  period. The first things any legitimate lawyer would do-- even a civil lawyer with no criminal experience-- 1. Tell Oswald and police (and the press) that he isn't going to say one more word without counsel being present for every interview, 2. Inform Oswald it's simply impossible for John Abt or any other non-Texas lawyer to represent him without local counsel who's a member of the Texas bar. In other words, tell him "certainly  we can try to get the best defense lawyers in the country to help but you need a local lawyer to file pleadings and I'll do until we can find someone better, I'm it". Even a civil lawyer would know this much. And he'd know to immediately call the best local criminal lawyer in town and get him down there as co-counsel. That this doesn't happen is evidence that the fix was in with those Dallas lawyers.
Agree with Paul and Mick. This has far more wight than my musing because it comes from an expert in the field. It is exactly the kind of info that's been absent for 50 years, but is so critical to seeing what was really happening.

If I understand correctly, neither Nichols nor the DCLU should have been allowed to see Oswald unless Oswald had agreed to being represented by them. The fact that Nichols was allowed to see him, and by what he told the press and (as we know now) by what he failed to tell the press, his sole purpose was to help the DPD stamp out any suggestion Oswald was being denied his rights. 

This is a a keeper.
