Why is James Files in prison?
Well, the official account is "attempted murder of a police officer". However, as with the official version of the JFK assassination, a closer look reveals something different. On these pages we are giving you two sides of the story of the conviction of James Files and his partner David Morley.
To wrap up the official story: Morley and Files were car-chased by two police officers. When the officers forced them to stop, Files and Morley opened fire. Morley shot David Ostertag, one of the cops. That one shot was not fatal, he recovered from his wounds. Case closed: Attempted 1st degree murder of a police officer. Sentence: two consecutive prison terms of 15 years each.
But Files and Morley say something else, namely that the two police officers tried to kill them and it was the officers who opened fire. Let's investigate both sides of the story.

I heard the Files interview awhile back...... I'd say he's involved but his story makes me feel he may know more than he is saying.

...should not the shooter hide the rifle immediately after the last shot with the empty still in the rifle?

Despite the impressive credentials of the facial expert, I am not convinced that the three tramps are the men she identifies. I would also have to wonder why, if these men were under arrest, they were not handcuffed. If they were not arrested, that would be why they were not fingerprinted or photographed.
Aside from that, I guess this conspiracy theory is as plausible as any other.

Personally I'm considering that James Files is just some guy who wants to become famous, because let's face it. No member of the CIA, or even civillian would openly admit they shot the president. Then again noone believes him so I guess he could.

Prosecutors said Harrelson, a violent thief and killer for hire in his twenties, was unusual because he used a sniper rifle rather than a handgun. “Charles Harrelson damaged everyone he came in contact with,” said the prosecutor at his last trial.
Harrelson even boasted — probably to impress potential employers — that he had shot President John F Kennedy in Dallas in 1963. He claimed to have been one of three men dressed as tramps on the grassy knoll close to the Kennedy cavalcade and said that Lee Harvey Oswald, the presumed assassin, was too far away from the president to get a clear shot.
