Evidence on Organized Crime in N.O. Aim


       [At this time, Jim Garrison was engaged in a heated public dispute over the existence of organized crime with Aaron Kohn and the Metropolitan Crime Commission]

       He [Garrison] also predicted that [Aaron] Kohn "in his desperation" will find red herrings and "will resort to every variety of emergency fabrication."

       "We will undoubtedly learn that I have been seen on a street car at the same time as Bugsy Schwartz, the famous burglar," said Garrison. "Or, that I was in New York City at the same time as Machine-gun Brady.

       "His [Kohn's] standard technique in such encounters is to use guilt by association. This is very much like the squid which, when attacked, injects black fluid into the eyes of his opponent."

[end of excerpts]

       Here we see Garrison presciently mocking such witnesses as Vernon Bundy and the Clinton crowd and his own propinquity analyses.
