If Jack Ruby had failed to kill Oswald [the cops bungled it at the Texas Theater] Lee would have 'committed suicide' a la Jeffery Epstein.
Any way it swung...Oswald would not have ever gone to trial.

So long as you are making things up why wouldn't "suicide" have been the second option instead of recruiting Ruby to murder Oswald and then hope he remained silent for the rest of his life.

Yes, and plant a note confessing to the crimes. Et cetera, et cetera.

As you've noted before (to the anger of the "Oswald was framed!" crowd), there's a long list of things the (alleged) conspirators could have done to cement his guilt. The fact that they didn't tells us something; something the Oswald defenders simply don't want to think about.

So, would there be any reason that Oswald would not remain silent after Ruby took care of him? Why not think that one over? Oh..that's right--you can't ::)

"I think 'conspirators' would have done X, therefore Oswald did it" is not a particularly compelling argument.

Any chance you could list the evidence showing that the "cops" were supposed to kill Oswald at the theater?

Is that avatar your recent picture?
>> evidence the cops were supposed to kill Oswald at the theater? << You didn't know that?  Evidence can only be provided by the corroboration of a witness. We'll need a seance for that. It is obvious to anyone with even a moderate amount of wit.. Supposedly [according to the official story] a team of about 15 units armed with shotguns converged out of the blue upon the theater to apprehend a suspect who sneaked in after allegedly shooting  a policeman dead. Supposedly, this cop killer pulls this weapon on cops acting upon the scrutiny of some finger pointer.
Unofficially...instead of gunning down the suspect in self defense one cop puts his hand around the suspects waist and proceeds to dance with him. If someone wants to believe this ...there is some oceanfront property in Nebraska I want to sell them. Face it...someone blew their assignment.

He didn't pull a gun on anybody, and nobody who was there even said that he did.  If he had pulled a gun, he would have been shot dead.

So , in other words you got nothing. Thanks for the Cakebread Lite spin.
