A Ranke Perspective

So it appears I jumped the gun a little in my previous post when I said CIT haven't really put forward evidence supporting the alleged staging of Lloyd England's accident scene. I just came across a post on the PentaCon site posted back in August of 2007. It's probably been debunked already but I'll give my own unique take on it. Using a number of photographs taken by Jason Ingersoll, CIT claim to have proven that the scene was staged somewhere between 09:40 and 10:00 AM. Below are eight pictures from the post.

Full Sized Images:
[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8]

They argue that since the light pole cannot be seen in pictures 1 and 2 but can be seen in pictures 3 onwards, it must have been planted on the road somewhere in between 09:49 and 09:52.

Now I don't really know what they are hypothesizing here. Maybe they think some truck carrying a forty foot light pole, was able to get through all the traffic, plant it and vanish without a trace within three or four minutes without anyone noticing. Or maybe they think the SUV and the white car had something to do with it. It doesn't matter anyway. Just because you can't clearly see the light pole in pictures [1] or [2], doesn't mean it isn't there. Those two pictures were clearly taken from a different perspective (from the Navy Annex Car park, as you can see from this image) and there are obstructions in the way. The difference in perspective is obvious when one looks at the cab. In pictures 1 and 2, the front side of the cab is visible to the left of the bush, but in pictures 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7, it is completely concealed by the bush. From the perspective of pictures 1 and 2, the lightpole would be hidden by the metal box. In picture [6], the light pole is once again almost complete hidden by the railing due to the perspective.

Furthermore, the pole is visible in the first two images. It's just not very clear. When compared to a clearer image taken from a similar perspective, after the the collapse of the outer wall, by Sgt. Gary Coppage, you can see that the whitish grey blurs in Ingersoll's images correspond perfectly with what are clearly parts of the pole in Coppage's image.

So what sinister plot do Ingersoll's photos document? By the looks of it, just a few people taking control and directing the traffic!

Since Lloyd's cab is visible in the photo taken at 09:48, this proves that if the scene was staged it would have had to have been set up either before the attack, or in the 10 minutes prior to the attack. Either way it's pretty implausible if you ask me.
