#1 tip-top arrangement for covering up an assassination---kill the accused assassin. There will be no trial to worry about.

Self-deprecating humor? There is a danger of overthinking this.

The LN reason that it was Ruby wanting to be hero does kinda fits the one bullet shot only

The problem for this theory imo is
1. Ruby going down the ramp is improbable because of the cop guarding the ramp and a cab driver who was parked and was watching the whole time and neither cop nor cabby saw Ruby
2. Why ,if the motive was fame ,would Ruby’s 1st statements befote a camera be  suggesting we would never know the truth and that people in high places were involved. Why risk agitating such people who could easily kill him while in jail , when it wasn’t true?

In his testimony to the Warren Commission Ruby said he wanted to have a polygraph or take a truth serum so that people would believe what he was saying, that he wasn't part of a conspiracy, would be believed. He was concerned that if people believed he was part of a conspiracy that this put his life and the lives of his family in danger and that the Jewish people as a whole would be blamed in someway. He was concerned about organisations such as the John Birch Society. He didn't say anything about knowledge of a plot and said he did it because he was emotional. I think he felt somewhere in his mind that he would be seen as a hero and that he had always wanted to be a hero.
