Can anyone answer why the heck Oswald needed a jacket on a sunny Texas afternoon, while he was already wearing a long sleeve flannel? Does that even make sense to anyone ... anyone with common sense?

And why would he ditch his jacket after killing a cop? Was he worried someone might identify him as the killer? So I guess keeping the gun and dumping the shells for cops to find wasn't much to worry about, but the jacket.... Oh no... that was the incriminating piece of evidence to be worried about, right?  ::)

Common sense, huh... I recently schooled you on the fact that it was only 50°F in Dallas that day, and pointed out that a number of people were wearing overcoats, jackets etc. along the motorcade route. And a baggy-sleeved jacket (according to Buell) would be a good choice for those wanting to limit the profile of a 34.8" lunch/curtain rod/rifle bag.

Wearing a jacket would cover up the revolver and getting rid of said jacket would be a no-brainer since there were a number of citizens eyeballing the little prick sporting a revolver and wearing a jacket @Tippit

And if anyone knows if mystery guest #2 demanded that he be given a jacket to wear in the lineups, feel free to speak up.

Maybe the CT JAQing League of Fence Sitters can ask that question as well.

The high was 70 degrees that day.

“34.8 inch bag”. LOL.

How does a baggy-sleeved jacket “limit the profile” of a bag carried under the arm, anyway? And isn’t the story that he got a jacket after leaving work?

So no more need to “cover up the revolver” after shooting a cop? Good one.
