(Testimony of J. Herbert Sawyer)

Mr. Sawyer.
when the shooting on Officer Tippit came in, I released half a dozen men to go to Oak Cliff to help with that.
Mr. Belin.
Inspector, is there anything else that you can think of, whether I have asked it or not, that is in any way relevant here?

Mr. SAWYER. I can't think of anything.
Mr. BELIN. Sir, we certainly appreciate your cooperation in coming down here.
You have a right, if you would like, after this report is typewritten, to read it and sign it before it is sent to us, or you can waive the reading of it and have it sent to us directly.
It doesn't make a bit of difference to us.
Mr. Sawyer.
Whichever you prefer It doesn't make any difference to me.
I would like to read it.
Mr. Belin.
Why don't we say you read it and sign it, and it will be sent to us.
Mr. Sawyer.
Okay.
