On Christmas night, Bud White met Lynn, Buzz Meeks, and Susan Lefferts, took bullets from Buzz’s firearm, and asked Dick Stensland about Buzz:
Bud White: You know him?
Dick Stensland: Yeah, I've seen him around. He used to be a cop.
Later in the movie, Bud White recalls the above conversation in the records room with Exley.:
Bud White: I knew Stensland lied to me. Lefferts' mother ID'd Stensland as Lefferts' boyfriend. Stensland pretended he didn't know Meeks or her the night that I met......Lynn.
Here it seems to me that Bud White is falsely claiming that Dick Stensland was pretending, when in fact he was not.
Is Bud White being truthful when he says that Dick Stensland is pretending?
