Circumstantial Evidence for Innocence of Oswald
President Kennedy was shot to death by snipers with rifles in November 1963.
One rifle was later found with three cartridge cases on the 6th floor of the Texas Schoolbook Depository building where Oswald was working.
The rifle was found later on the 6th floor and identified as the one Oswald had purchased by mail order several months ago. So, the US Government officially regarded Oswald as the assassin of JFK.
Oswald, who had been working in the building for a few months before the assassination of JFK, had connections with FBI, CIA, and the Mafia, though he had retired Marines, traveled to the Soviet Union, worked in Minsk as a factory worker, married a young Russian woman, and then came back to the US. After returning to the US, Oswald was working in some small companies and shops though he also acted as a pro-Castro activist. In the summer of 1963, he distributed pro-Castro brochures on the street of New Orleans. The address printed on the brochures was the same building as the one where an ex-FBI officer had office, working for anti-Castro activities in cooperation with CIA .
Oswald seems to have been acting as a low-level agent of CIA in disguise of a kind of communist.
Oswald's mother had some connection with the Mafia, though his father died before Oswald was born in 1939. Before joining Marines to be assigned to the Atsugi air base, Japan, Oswald had joined the Civil Air Patrol Unit in New Orleans where he is believe to have acquainted with a strange pilot David Ferry who had connection with Mafia and died in strange circumstances during investigation by a district prosecutor in connection with the JFK assassination.
So, if the Mafia and some group of CIA agents had been tied up in the planning of JFK assassination, Oswald could be a useful person for them to cover up their plot.
Therefore, if Oswald had been on the 6th floor of the Depository building and been involved in the JFK assassination, it was suspicious that he tried to kill JFK alone on his own initiative. Oswald was not so crazy and desperate.
But would Oswald accept an order (from the Mafia or any other organization) to shoot at JFK from a window of the 6th floor that was his workshop with his own rifle? It is tantamount to being arrested by the police and executed after the assassination.
How could the Mafia or any other organization persuade Oswald to accept the order to shoot at JFK? Probably, they said to Oswald just to help a sniper. And they must have said to Oswald that there would be no evidence for Oswald to be linked to the assassination. But, they must have also said that Oswald should be on the 6th floor to check anybody trying to enter the room so as to prevent any interference with the sniper. With this instruction, they deleted an alibi of Oswald. And, the sniper seems to have used a similar type of rifle Oswald had without informing Oswald of the trick, so that later the rifle should be linked to Oswald (by replacing it with the real Oswald's rifle in the police office or somewhere), though it is not fully clear about this rifle matter.
So, JFK was hit, but the fatal shot came not from the Depository building behind JFK's limousine but from the so-called grassy knoll ahead of the JFK's convoy.
Several minutes after the firing, Oswald left the Depository building though he encountered a policeman rushing into the building in the 2F canteen and then was told by a workshop leader cancellation of the day's work.
It means that Oswald did not try to get away immediately after the incident. He was drinking coke in the canteen when the policeman came in hurry in the building, being accompanied by a manager of the Depository. It is as if Oswald thought that he would not be suspected.
Indeed, Oswald had not planned how to run away and hide after the incident. He did not prepare money or means of transportation for defection. He returned to his boarding house by taxi, after trying to get back by bus, to fetch a pistol to leave the house in hurry and was finally arrested in a movie theater just a mile or so away his boarding house. It means that Oswald had not been prepared for necessary flight.
If he had carried out the JFK assassination on his own initiative, he should have some concrete plan for his escape. Therefore, it seems that Oswald was forced to help the real sniper. And, a scenario presented to Oswald must be that nobody would suspect Oswald though some evidence of firing from a window of the 6th floor might be found.
But as time went by, when he came back to his boarding house, Oswald found a possibility that he could be suspected. So, he picked up the handgun and tried to contact with a Mafia member. And on his way, probably, to Jack Ruby's residence, he might have encountered policeman Tippit who was killed then by Oswald and/or a Mafia member.
Two days later the Mafia sent Jack Ruby to the Dallas Police Department building to kill Oswald. It means that there was probably a plan to kill Oswald immediately after shooting at JFK. But Oswald happened to escape it on the day.
The point at issue is that Oswald was not prepared for his flight after shooting at JFK. It means that he did not act on his initiatives and he only helped a real sniper by request from the Mafia. And, Oswald thought that he was not suspected as a sniper by the police, because he just helped the sniper on the 6th floor. So, he was not prepared for his own flight at all.
When a criminal plans a crime, the most important thing for him is whether he can escape a planned crime scene. If he thinks that it is impossible to safely get away, he will abandon the plan. Only a desperate or crazy killer commits a crime without a flight plan. But, Oswald was neither desperate nor crazy. He must have been assured by the Mafia or any other organization that there was no need for him to run away since Oswald would not be suspected.
This is circumstantial evidence that Oswald was not the murderer of President Kennedy.
Anyway, 50 years after the JFK assassination, it might be progress of the US society that there are no Mafias or any other organizations that try to kill the US President who is an African American, though most of African Americans supported JFK 50 years ago.
But what different world it would have been if JFK had led the US for eight years as President in 1960s?
