JFK assassination


Rye Miles #13621

Recommended Posts

2nd grade, in a parochial school, in a little town.  The principal came in, informed us the president had been shot, and we had a few moments of prayer, then got back to work.

 

I have a clearer memory of the funeral, which we watched, as a family.  I was bored out of my gourd, and wanted to go outside to play, but my dad insisted we all watch it, saying that this was world history, and we would want to be a witness to it.

 

Solemnly,

FJT

I was 9 and in 4th grade with Mrs. Hawked when it came over the PA and we were released for the day. Don't know why they sent us home!

I was in 5th grade and we were on the ball field for afternoon recess.  They broke up our stickball game and made us go back to class without explanation.  One of the boys complained loudly about it on the way back inside and the teacher screamed at him, saying that the president was shot and killed and the kid could just shut the hell up.

 

To the best of my knowledge, the teacher was never disciplined for the incident and I know that the kid was severely chastised by his parents when he complained about it!

 

Our television service was out of NYC and for the whole weekend, it was news and commentary without commercial breaks.

 

My folks tried to make me watch all of it and I DID see the Oswald killing and a lot of other stuff, but I slipped out of the house a lot and found other stuff to entertain myself.

 

I’m firmly convinced that Oswald did NOT act alone and that he was killed to shut him up.

I am firmly of the belief that that horse is dead and no more flogging will extract more information.


Maybe not, but I bet we’d find out more if we ever get a look in the wagon that equine was hitched to!!  <_<

I was 2 when it happened. I remember watching the funeral procession on TV I also watched a lot of Viet Nam coverage, but that another story.

I have studied and read a lot about the assassination over the years  and based on what I have read this is my theory  on what happened:

JFK was killed by 2 parties probably working together. Johnson and the mob. Johnson hated the Kennedy's  and wanted to be President very badly. He was no stranger to rubbing out the opposition from his days as governor of Texas. The mob of course wanted retribution for getting JFK elected (Yes, Voter fraud) and then Bobby going after them tooth and nail.

But I believe the fatal shot that blew the back of JFK 's head off actually came accidentally from a Secret service agent (a vehicle driver) that was grabbing a then new AR-180 off the back seat of a car following JFK's and not having been trained in its use (he was a driver) fumbled with the safety/ selector and fired the round which struck JFK' s head.                         Also, Interestingly enough there is a well published photo of George Bush sr. Standing on the front steps if the Texas book depository moments after the shooting. He totally denied being there, saying he was in Houston at the time. Could he have planted the rifle and casings? I think so. He was later named head of the CIA.

My 2 cents worth.

Sorry for being long winded.

I think you've got it! A conspiracy between Johnson, the mob, and the Republicans in the person of George Bush. Yet it might have failed but for the intervention of a bumbling Secret Service agent. Lucky break for them! But wait, maybe the Secret Service was in on it.

 

I think that's the last element. I need to get it out there before th

I read a lot of articles, a couple books included some of the Warren report and I have no clue. There are so many theories and people that are maybe involved that I can’t really believe anyone. As some said, I doubt we’ll ever know!:blink:
