Ruby Guns Down Oswald
Posted by LOTGK on October 7, 2007
November 24th, 1963. Dallas, Texas. This is where it all began. Lee Harvey Oswald, already arrested, beaten, and interrogated in connection to the assassination of president John F. Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States, was being held at police headquarters waiting to be transferred to a more secure location. Enter Jack Ruby.
Ruby stopped at his dry cleaners and then decided to walk over to the jail where the police were holding Oswald. Ruby walked right in, no one noticed him as the reporters and other security agents concentrated on the door Oswald was going to come through.
Ruby mingled in the crowd positioning himself closer waiting for Oswald to enter and seconds later, the Kennedy Assassination conspiracy began. Ruby shot and killed Oswald at point blank range and his aim was true. Oswald slumped to the ground, still handcuffed to the Texas Marshal assigned to escort him to the county jail.
An hour later, Oswald was pronounced dead and Ruby quickly surrendered and was arrested. Ruby shouted out that he shot Oswald to avenge the death of President Kennedy. Ruby died in prison several years later from cancer.
The seeds of a terrible conspiracy were planted that day. Before Ruby shot Oswald, there was only one gunman, and it was Oswald who acted alone. The next day, people seemed to remember the events at Dealy Plaza a little differently. Perhaps there were shots that came from the little grassy knoll before the underpass. Perhaps there were four shots fired. Perhaps some from the front.
Today, 40 plus years later, after countless books, papers, reports, documentaries, and movies on the assassination each adding or subtracting elements of the actual days events to suit their thesis, many of the younger generation really don’t know what happened that day. Oliver Stone’s movie, JFK, 1991, distorted the facts of the assassination even more adding evidence and events that never occurred. Now it all seems like an old movie.
Fact is, Oswald did shoot Kennedy, hitting him at least once in the back of the head which was the fatal shot. Oswald did assassinate president Kennedy but thanks to Jack Ruby, there will always remain doubt that he acted alone and that a possible second shooter was lurking on the grassy knoll assisting in the assassination to guarantee their objective.
A carefully orchestrated conspiracy plan or simply a dejected lone gunman wanting to make a name for himself. Forty plus years later, hard to tell.
Welcome to the 101 of a conspiracy theory.
