A storied former prosecutor scrutinizes one of the most debated crimes in American history The murder of President John F. Kennedy has provoked by far more suspicion, argument, obsession, and especially book-publishing than any similar event in American history. Now famed lawyer and true-crime writer Vincent Bugliosi has produced what he hopes will be the book to exceed all others. "Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy" may do that, in weight (5.3 pounds) as well as content, but it's clear that if his editor hadn't insisted he turn over the manuscript after 21 years of labor, the almost-superhuman effort might have wrecked his health.

I do not spend all or even much of of my free time regarding the matter.
I read some things about the umbrella man and his testimony, and I was never impressed by the words. It was bullshit, and you can covet and hold onto that BS for all of your days as you please.
The fact of the matter is, my opinions do not really count. Well, they all of a sudden seem to matter out here.
If you want to argue this stuff into perpetuity then you’ll likely find other takers.
As for me, my mind has been made up for a long while concerning the subject.
It does not require one to be a mental giant in order to see to see what is plain to see.
You can look at what you consider to be the evidence before your lying eyes, and accept that nonsense.
Please do not expect me to jump into that cesspool of logic just because I am at heart a really nice guy.
Don’t even get me started on the rants that I have that compares and contrasts your sort of thinking with other victims over time.
You would not likely wish to taste my venom.
The first question any detective would ask about a murder victim is this:
How did the victim die?
It was the Shooter Guy...:)
I guess I will choose to be afraid.
Be very afraid.
Wrong and I already know you have never visited the sixth floor museum.
Since when is a 90 degree angle better than a target moving away at less than ten degrees?
Alright. No answer forthcoming from you, I guess. Figured it all out from some book well over twenty years ago when you were 14. I'll let you go then.
“Prove it. Tell me exactly who shot Kennedy, where they were standing and how that scenario matches the trajectories.”
You ought read “Mortal Error” by Bonar Menninger which recounts the work of ballistics expert Howard Donahue. Donahue studied the “trajectories” exactly as you demand. His conclusion (and this ought go over real well with some on here):the fatal shot which killed Kennedy was accidentally fired from an AR-15 carried in a follow-up Secret Service vehicle.
Ok, so before this theory (and me) get pilloried, I recommend critics at least read the book and then judge.
Personal note:I have read quite a few books on the assassination, including Jim Garrison’s “On the Trail of the Assassins”; and though I don’t claim to be an expert, Menninger’s is about the only one I know of that looks at the ballistics evidence scientifically. I am not saying he is right, but it is a provocative work.
“You would not likely wish to taste my venom.”
You didn’t really just say that, did you?
Funny though, I never read anything on his mafia ties. Seems to me that's an important part of Ruby's life. Maybe that should be researched and expanded on.
I think he did!
Are you interested in swallowing swords or something?
If you want to debate with me constructively then that is fine...
If you want to just rebuke and parry swords, well then get ready to know the true taste of my caustic wit.
Of course, you might want to consider bringing a a bit of help just for the possibility that you could go tachy on me.
Thanks for letting me go so that I don’t have to show you my book collection.
No thanks. I prefer my own research with the actual testimonies and photographs.
Let me know of any testimony which says a Secret Serviceman stood up over a windshield and killed the president. I need another laugh.
He was a small time hood but he also hung around police officers for probably the same reasons. To feel important.
Even if you could prove Ruby killed Oswald in order to shut him up, that still leaves the fact Oswald killed Kennedy.
So far I’m going to need some Chloraseptic, chainmail, a hazmat suit and a defibrilator just to “debate” you. That sounds like a lot of work for an admittedly lost cause. How about I just laugh at you and call it a done deal?
You’re always free to list your sources. Would be nice, actually.
no soap radio
Ruby shot Oswald because he thought that would make him a national hero and never be convicted, like a parent who kills a child molester,etc.
Radix is really funny on this thread, anyone who can’t see the conspiracy is an “absolute idiot”, but he made his mind up a long time ago, thinks the umbrella man is significant and definitely HAS NOT read Case Closed or Bugliosi’s book. He’s the authority here, he read a book about 20 years ago and made up his mind, with such a thorough examination of all of the evidence who can argue with him? Who is willing to taste his venom? Who will incur his wrath? Who will dare debate a man who read a book he can’t remember about 20 years ago? He will crush us. We have been warned.
Sometimes a conspiracy is a conspiracy
But, most often, not.
