Doesn?t this strike anyone as quite odd?  I mean generally if you want to try and get away with a crime I would imagine it would help to do it where NO ONE KNOWS WHO YOU ARE!  In 1963 they did NOT have the type of equipment they have now to quickly ID you and track you via GPS and other methods, so if you are unknown this greatly increases your chances of getting away with it!  As for the claim of ?Well he wanted to be famous? we have to go by his behavior after he was arrested! Did it strike anyone as wanting to be famous?

Also, the excuse DVP gave me years ago for not committing the crime at Love Field was that he couldn?t get his rifle there without being seen!  First of all, he didn?t need ?his? rifle (something I don?t think ever existed by the way) as he could have used a pistol instead and that could have easily been hidden from a cab driver (much better than a bus scenario as again it creates less people who can remember you). 

Secondly, don?t you think the SAME logic applies to getting a ride from Wes Frazier and then lugging the rifle two to three blocks to the TSBD and then lugging it around until you hide it in the TSBD for later use?  These were people who KNEW you too by sight and in some cases by NAME!

Also, it would seem DP was a much tougher place to get away from.  At the airport he could have dropped the gun and disappeared into the crowd and then even got on a flight out of town.  This sounds much more plausible than the OFFICIAL scenario to me.

When one adds in the fact LHO was NOT very good with a rifle this would seem to make this the ONLY scenario to me.

What are your thoughts on this?

Not odd in the slightest. There was a degree of luck required for him to succeed (not being challenged over his parcel; being alone by the window etc) but the convenience of the set up was just too good to be true. He had meet his destiny and didn't look back.

Thank you, Rob. That made my day. :)

No problem Jerry. Why do you think he allegedly used his workplace when he was known there?

So you think that they just used the same premise?

Oswald being known there (TSBD) was the advantage that location had over all others. Isn't that obvious to you?

No, it isn't. Since he never admitted to committing the crime, even when dying, it is not a stretch to think if he committed the shooting then he wanted to get away with it. So again, why would he pick a location where people knew him?

LOL.  First, there is no getting away with assassinating the president.  The act entails arrest or death.  Oswald recognized that which is why he left his wedding ring and money with his wife.  But if he wanted to at least try to escape what would be better - standing out in the crowd at the airport and shooting JFK in the direct presence of the Secret Service and an angry mob or secluding himself in a building some distance away?  Caprio believes that standing out in the open in the presence of a large crowd and secret service detail would have enhanced Oswald's chance of escape! Whew.  How did that work out for Sirhan Sirhain, Sqeaky Froamm, John Hinckley, and Leon Czolgosz?

So you believe that he would be "out in the open" at the airport? Why?
