    At the time they took him in the movie theatre, there was not PC to arrest/charge him with Murdering the President.

    It is a very educational place to visit, Lawboy. And catty-corner across from the school book depository is The Old Red museum. It is full of Texas history. I really enjoyed it.

    So how and where did they get the authority to charge him with killing the President? Unless it had already been decided---

    I don't know how soon after being taken in they charged him with killing the President, you said 45 minutes?

    Evidence was developed I suppose in between the shots fired and having him in custody for shooting Tippet.

    Who? When? We have eyewitnesses seeing a man on the sixth floor with a rifle, witnesses to Oswald owning that rifle, and a witness who gave him a ride to work that morning and remarked at the package Oswald was carrying ('curtain rods', he was told.

    Yet for all of the cameras and movie cameras at Dealey Plaza that day, there's not a single image or photo of anybody at the 'Grassy knoll'. All of the credible, eye witness reports say the shots came from above and behind the motorcade.

    However, I think I'm done with this. Conspiracy theorists believe whatever the hell they want to, and nothing ever changes their minds.

    Conspiracy's usually don't last this long without any evidence to support it and its so much in the public eye it would be impossible for it to be any other way since then it would suggest the government had to have knowledge of "who" really killed Kennedy and the people behind it and lets face the fact the United states cant keep a secret for to long .

    This will put the times in context. Read the entire article.

    JFK's Vision of Peace: RFK Jr. on John F. Kennedy's Attempts to End the Cold War | Politics News | Rolling Stone

    "On November 22nd, 1963, my uncle, president John F. Kennedy, went to Dallas intending to condemn as "nonsense" the right-wing notion that "peace is a sign of weakness." He meant to argue that the best way to demonstrate American strength was not by using destructive weapons and threats but by being a nation that "practices what it preaches about equal rights and social justice," striving toward peace instead of "aggressive ambitions." Despite the Cold War rhetoric of his campaign, JFK's greatest ambition as president was to break the militaristic ideology that has dominated our country since World War II. He told his close friend Ben Bradlee that he wanted the epitaph "He kept the peace," and said to another friend, William Walton, "I am almost a 'peace at any price' president." Hugh Sidey, a journalist and friend, wrote that the governing aspect of JFK's leadership was "a total revulsion" of war. Nevertheless, as James W. Douglass argues in his book JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters, JFK's presidency would be a continuous struggle with his own military and intelligence agencies, which engaged in incessant schemes to trap him into escalating the Cold War into a hot one. His first major confrontation with the Pentagon, the Bay of Pigs catastrophe, came only three months into his presidency and would set the course for the next 1,000 days."

    He never did.

    Killing a President was not a Federal crime so LHO could not have been prosecuted
    on Federal charges. Nor had the state of Texas yet charged him- LHO was never
    charged with killing anyone other than Officer Tippet.
