Cop, for whatever reason, decides to stop suspect and talk to him.

Cop asks a few 'cop questions' such as 'where are you coming from/going to'.

Cop, for whatever reason, isn't entirely satisfied. Maybe the suspect seems jittery or the suspect is a wiseass, or tells the cop he's going shoe shopping for his daughter, or to see a movie. Doesn't matter.

Cop decides he's going to get out of his patrol car, search suspect, get ID.

Cop SHOULD have told suspect not to move and to keep his hands where they can be seen.

Suspect knows once Cop finds his weapon he's going to be detained and possibly arrested.

Cop, as he is exiting his vehicle, doesn't keep constant attention on suspect allowing suspect to get the drop on him.

Cop gets no further than the front fender of his vehicle when suspect unloads on him from less than 10 feet away.

Poor dumb cop.

Cool story, bro.

That's exactly what happened.  We will never know with certainty what drew Tippit's attention to Oswald but we know that Brewer found him suspicious as well.  I don't believe Tippit stopped Oswald because he necessarily had any cause to associate him with the assassination per se.  He just found something about his behavior suspect and thought it worth checking out.  Whatever Oswald said didn't satisfy him and he steps out to further investigation.  Oswald has no idea at this point whether he has been identified as a suspect.   He can't risk identifying himself to a police officer.  So he either has to play this out and risk arrest or make his move while he can.

Why didn't he just show the cop the "Hidell" ID that he allegedly had on him?

In 2004, Allen Tippit himself told Dale Myers that the supposed conversation never took place.

Why are so many conspiracy advocates so eager to perpetuate lies drummed up by dishonest authors desperate to sell books?

Same reason you're so eager to perpetuate stories drummed up by Dale Myers.

Tippit was a ww2 parachuting veteran with 10 years of experience as a police officer in Dallas.

He is approaching a murder suspect who matches the description broadcast to him on radio.

However, he approaches the man keeping his gun IN THE HOLSTER and drives up TO THE SIDE of the man STAYING BEHIND the steering wheel engaging in a friendly conversation NOT asking him to KEEP HIS HANDS where he can see them. He does not even find it convenient to INFORM THE DISPATCHER of his intentions.

He was a bit distracted by whoever/whatever he was looking for that caused him to run James Andrews off the road and look in the space between his front and back seats.

Does anyone know where Tippit's girlfriend DID live?

Joyce Lee Witherspoon (aka, Joyce Lee McDonald or Joyce Lee Gordon) had once lived at 410 1/2 Tenth Street.

Because the jig was up, Oswald was seen killing Tippit, Oswald was seen acting suspiciously, Oswald had a revolver in his pants and Oswald didn't have a movie ticket.

Who hasn't seen that video "Could Oswald have walked it?"
These guys had an agenda.

Without knowing exactly when Oswald supposedly left the rooming house and exactly when Tippit was shot, it's an exercise in futility.

I'm talking about in Richard's made up narrative above about Oswald shooting Tippit because he "can't risk identifying himself to a police officer".
