The delay caused by the five minutes process of getting Lee Harvey Oswald a sweater allowed Jack Ruby time to arrive. If Ruby misses Oswald then I assume he survives to face the two murder charges ( President Kennedy and Officer Tibbet) I just reread Gerald Posner's Case Closed, which describes the facts of the Kennedy assassination. The evidence against Oswald was well beyond a reasonable doubt. The rifle found on the six floor of the School Book Depository with his fingerprints on it. The witnesses that said the shot came from the sixth floor of the Depository. The two witnesses that saw Oswald shoot from the sixth floor. The five witnesses that saw him kill officer Tibbet. The fact that he left work. The witnesses that saw him hide from the police in a shoe store lobby.The two witnesses that saw him run into a movie theater without buying a ticket. So would he get a plea bargain? Could a judge give him a plea bargain without angering voters who want Oswald strung up? If he avoided the death penalty, how long does he last in prison in the isolation of protective custody? Would he at age 73 by still alive in prison or in some prison mental ward?
