Exclamation Lee Harvey Oswald wasn't arrested for killing JFK

http://www.cnn.com/2013/11/14/us/jfk...html?hpt=hp_c2

Lee Harvey Oswald was actually arrested for fatally shooting a police officer, Dallas patrolman J.D. Tippitt, 45 minutes after killing Kennedy. He denied killing either one and, as he was being transferred to county jail two days later, he was shot and killed by Dallas nightclub operator Jack Ruby.


Sidenote:
Jack Ruby was sentenced to death for Oswalds murder but successfully appealed for a re-trial.
he died of lung cancer b4 the trial.

I guess I'm an idiot because I didn't know.

Based on the evidence, I don't think JFK's death was a conspiracy. There's little solid evidence to prove there was a shooting in the grassy knoll. Ballistics line up with Oswald being the shooter. The Zapruder film and photos from that day corroborate this.

That said, I don't think many tears were shed in the highest halls of power over his death. It's well known that a lot of higher ups in Washington didn't care for his policies, especially towards the USSR.

The Zapruder film? Meh. I'm not a huge fan of the hand-held style.

Oswald assassinates jfk.
Ruby, knowing he going to die soon because of cancer, kills Oswald to silence him.
Ruby dies shortly thereafter.

all loose ends neatly wrapped up with a tinfoil bow.

/Conspiracy complete?
