JFK's Assassination

By: Neel Shah

Who? What? When? Where? and Why?

John F Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States, was assassinated at 12:30 pm on Friday, November 22, 1963, in Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Texas. JFK was shot by a sniper while traveling with his wife Jacqueline, Texas Governor John Connally and Connally's wife Nellie, in a presidential motorcade. A 10 months investigation from November 1963 to September 1964 concluded that JFK was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald. Before he could stand for trial he was killed by Jack Ruby.

Media's Perspective

There are many conspiracies about how JFK was killed. The one that was told to the citizens by the media and the government was that a man named Lee Harvey Oswald killed the President Kennedy. It was said that he was the only one in the act of killing President Kennedy, but this was only one conspiracy there are many others that people don't even know about. The other conspiracy states that a CIA agents were disappointed when Kennedy became the president because he supported Bay of Pigs. The CIA agents lost their jobs and were very upset with President Kennedy. So they all gathered around the Dealey Plaza and shot at JFK, which successfully killed President Kennedy as planned.

Biases

There are lots of types of bias in the JFK assassination stories, one of them is where you hear/read the story from, in other word the resources. Everyone has their own perspective on the incident, so you can hear/read different stories from all resources. Whenever the audience hear/read the stories from a person/author they try to convince the audience that they see things from their point of view.

Criticism

The type of criticism I notice over the years in JFK's assassination stories is historical. I think of it as historical because each assassination story is unique in itself. All the stories out there since 1963 are all very convincing, it makes you believe in them. Each story has its own perspective that how the assassination was done and who did it. But the truth is nobody really knows who killed President Kennedy, although it was claimed that Lee Harvey Oswald killed JFK but there was no solid evidence against him.

My Perspective

I think it was Jack Ruby's plan to kill President Kennedy but he decided to pay someone who can do this, instead of him doing it, which in this case was Lee Harvey Oswald. I think the reason he assigned this work to Oswald is because if he kills JFK and gets caught than he can get in a big problem. He might have thought that once Oswald kills JFK than he can kill him so nobody will know why he killed President Kennedy if the police ever finds him as an assassin. The reason why I think he is the master planner of the JFK assassination is because he killed Oswald two days after JFK died, he might have thought that Oswald will say everything about him. His reason to the citizens was that he couldn't see the pain that Kennedy's family had to go through and he didn't like that the assassin was taken for a trail instead of killing him. But as per the information I have, Jack Ruby was not a relative of JFK, than why would he feel so bad for his family that he ended up killing the assassin. There were many people in the U.S. who felt bad for Kennedy's family but no one took this kind of step. I think the reason he killed him was just fear, fear of truth coming out.
