Regarding the shooting of Dallas Officer J.D. Tippit, please see the section of my book Crossfire entitled “The Shooting of J.D. Tippit” (pp.
340-350). What you will learn is that Tippit was not killed by Lee Harvey Oswald, who was already in the Texas Theater when the shooting took place
about 1:15 p.m. This was confirmed by three separate witnesses, including the theater manager, who told me he sold popcorn to the man who was hauled
out by police shortly after 1:30 p.m. and that man was already in the theater shortly after 1 p.m. Now, since the government has been quite successful
in arguing for years that Oswald must have shot JFK because he shot the policeman, we can now reverse the argument by saying that since Oswald did not
shoot the policeman, maybe he didn’t shoot JFK.
The movements of Tippit and his actions on that day appear to be that of man on a mission. I think he played some role, perhaps a minor one, in the
assassination conspiracy. Perhaps he was set up to be killed so that the authorities would shoot Oswald on sight or perhaps he tried to back out of
the scheme. We will probably never know for certain since there has yet to be an in-depth and objective investigation of this crime. This is a central
point to consider. Since it is well documented that officials of the federal government engaged in destruction of evidence, alteration of evidence,
fabricated of evidence and intimidation of witnesses (all felony crimes when committed in a murder investigation), this indicates that there was an
internal coup d’etat in 1963, one that has yet to be publicly acknowledged.
NOTE to Nohup: First off, there is no statute of limitations on murder, so this Texas homicide is still open in the books. Secondly, even if justice
is denied in this case, there is no reason why truth should not prevail, if for no other reason than to see that future generations don’t repeat it.
I would also argue with your statement concerning “circumstantial evidence” and “odd connections.” The demonstrable connection between Oswald
and Jack Ruby (see the testimony of Julia Ann Mercer, Janet Conforto, Kathy Kay, Shari Angel, Walter Weston, Ester Mash, Attorney Carroll Jarnagin,
Dallas Deputy Sheriff Billy Preston, Constable Robie Love and others) makes for something much more than simply “odd”. Three separate alibi
witnesses, including theater manager Butch Burroughs, who could have testified in a fair trial that they saw Oswald in the Texas Theater both before
and during the shooting of Officer Tippit many blocks away, strikes me as much more than circumstantial evidence. It is clear that you have not
studied the wealth of assassination literature in any great depth. This is certainly your right. But don’t try to convince alert and quizzical minds
that there is little chance of “contrary evidence” coming to light. And since when has consensus equated with truth? Once the consensus was that
the Earth was flat, that the U.S. Sixth Fleet actually was attacked in the Gulf of Tonkin and our politicians would never lie to the public.
