1- There was no All Points Bulletin released This of course would have been extremely useful, since Memphis is only a few minutes away from Arkansas and Mississippi. If an all points Bulletin was released Mississippi and Arkansas would have been aware of an assassination and could have caught the white mustang with the well dressed man that dispatchers reported from Memphis. However, while Memphis and all of Tennessee were looking for the white mustang and the man; Mississippi and Arkansas were both unaware of any white mustang and a well dressed man and of course, the assassination of Dr. King.
6- Judge Joe Brown, a Tennessee Judge who reviewed the MLK case had the assassination rifle tested ruled that 12 out of the 18 test bullets that were fired through the supposed assassination rifle, had markings different from the markings on the bullet that killed Dr. King. Which means that the bullet recovered from Dr. King could NOT be matched to the murder weapon. Therefore, a switch of guns was made or planted.
7- James Earl Ray was a terrible shooter in his stint in the army How can a terrible shooter make the greatest shot of his life from a rather difficult location?
11- A Question of time
-- Less than two minutes after the fatal shot was fired, a bundle containing the 30.06 Remington rifle allegedly used in the assassination and some of Ray's belongings was conveniently found in the doorway of the Canipe Amusement Company next door to the boarding house. Ray would have had to fire the shot that killed Martin Luther King from his contorted position in the bathroom, exit the sniper's nest, go to his room to collect his belongings and wrap and tie it all in a bundle, leave his room, run down the stairs and out of the boarding house, stash the bundle next door, and then get away from the scene unnoticed -- all within two minutes!
12- The missing trees
* One witness, who was sitting just in front of the bank of trees, said he heard a rifle fired directly behind him at ground level, and not from the boarding house. Two people at the fire station said that a boy came in and related much the same story, but the young man apparently left before police could question him.
5) The FBI admitted there was no trace of gunpowder residue on the window sill which the government claims was used by the shooter.
