Regarding Tippit, he was exactly the kind of dirty cop that might be asked to shoot a patsy.
There are different kinds of dirty cops?
 What material is available that supports Tippit being assigned to 'shoot a patsy'?

Allow me to illustrate this point. John Franklin Elrod, an unfortunate alcoholic who happened to be walking along the railroad tracks not far from where Kennedy was shot on 22 November 1963, was thrown into the Dallas jail, arrested on suspicion of involvement in the assassination. He claims that in 1964 he told the FBI in Memphis that Oswald had identified another prisoner, one Lawrence Miller, in the jail that day. Miller had been arrested two days earlier with Jack Ruby's auto mechanic Donnell Whitter with US Army weapons stolen from National Guard Armory in Terrell, Texas.

This hearsay was also in "Oswald Talked" by Ray & Mary La Fontaine - 1996----- Yeah.. I read that well written yarn.
Mike... Oswald was placed in solitary confinement at the Dallas jail. No one else ever spoke to or with him that weekend...no one.
Do you actually think that the cops would have it any other way?

I wonder if the 3rd person was Shaw?

Garrison asked Cummings that very question and showed him numerous photos of Shaw. Cummings said the third man did not look like Shaw.

Cummings is an especially compelling witness not only because of his background but because he did not want to come forward but felt he had a duty to do so and was hoping that he could do so without any attracting any publicity.

An often-overlooked source on Jack Ruby's extensive Mafia ties is the HSCA Report. I have extracted the section on Ruby and the Mafia and have highlighted key statements, segments, and paragraphs:

The HSCA's investigation into Jack Ruby and his Mafia ties was some of the committee's best work.
