Conspiracy theorists no doubt love this one, the JFK assassinations. Here’s a brief lowdown for you, with some of the notes I’ve found floating around the internet.

John F Kennedy, US president, died 1.00pm on November 22nd, 1963 in Parkland Hospital, Dallas having been shot half an hour earlier in his car, he was waving to spectators as they passed the Texas School Depository. The first shot missed him, the second pass through his neck and hit Texas Governor, John Connally, and the third shot proved to be the fatal one. The Vice President, Lyndon Johnson was sworn in immediately.

1.15pm Tippit, a Dallas policeman was shot dead, the killer ran into a cinema and was arrested. Lee Harvey Oswald was the man, he was identified as having left behind a rifle at the Book Depository Building. He was charged with double murder and whilst being moved to the county jail, Jack Ruby, pushed through reporters and shot him dead. There was to be no trial for the murderer of the president.

So the conspiracy theorists? They wonder if he could have made all three shots in 8 seconds, or if there was another shooter on the grassy gnoll? After all it seems that Jack Ruby had been able to to get through to walk up and shoot Oswald.

    I’m fascinated by this one, even thought I don’t believe there was a conspiracy.
