Lee Harvey Oswald’s Mugshots Following His Final Arrest

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Before Lee Harvey Oswald became known for all the wrong reasons, he was like every other person. Unlike how he’s portrayed in mainstream media, Oswald was someone his children looked up to, an individual who contributed to society, and, most importantly, someone who admired and supported President John F. Kennedy.

In our latest article, we discuss the testimonies following Oswald’s arrest; their surprise is yet another indication that Oswald was no more than a scapegoat.

  1. Francis Martello

Warren Commission staff member Wesley Liebeler asked Francis Martello if he was surprised upon learning that Oswald had been arrested for shooting President John F. Kennedy.

The records show that then-Lieutenant Martello had interviewed Oswald following a previous arrest in August 1963.

Martello responded to the question in the affirmative, expressing his surprise and emphasizing that Oswald did not come across as a violent individual during their interview. He described Oswald as passive and non-violent in his demeanor and appearance.

Martello went as far as to state that he couldn't have imagined or believed that Oswald would commit the alleged acts attributed to him.

  1. Sam Ballen

In his Oswald testimony, Sam Ballen said he became acquainted with Lee Harvey Oswald through a mutual friend named George De Mohrenschildt. De Mohrenschildt informed Ballen that he had met an intriguing couple, the Oswalds, who had recently arrived in Dallas and Fort Worth from Russia.

Oswald was facing financial difficulties and needed employment. At the request of De Mohrenschildt, Ballen agreed to meet with Oswald and help him find a job. Ballen and Oswald had a two-hour meeting in Ballen's office, after which the latter left for a meeting at the Republic National Bank.

When asked about the arrest, Ballen said he was surprised to hear it. He explained that he did not believe Oswald was the type of person capable of such an act.

Ballen said if you were to line up 50 individuals, Lee Harvey Oswald would stand out as the least likely suspect, as he didn't fit the profile of someone who would commit such a crime. Thus, Ballen's surprise stemmed from his perception that Oswald did not fit the typical profile of a person capable of such actions.

  1. Buell Wesley Frazier

Buell Wesley Frazier was a friend and coworker of Oswald’s.

He revealed in an interview that Oswald had a strong affection for children. Frazier recounted how he often engaged in conversations about the neighborhood's children, and how many of them regularly sought out the Paine house, where Oswald and his daughter lived, to partake in play and social interactions with him.

His statements emphasize Oswald's more personal and ordinary qualities in contrast to the public image of him as an assassin. They also indicate that he had everything to lose by committing such an act.

In a bone-chilling event reminiscent of the not-so-long-ago assassination of Shinzo Abe, an assassination attempt on Democratic presidential hopeful Robert F. Kennedy Jr. unfolded outside a campaign event in a Los Angeles neighborhood. The harrowing incident prompted Kennedy and our platform to request Secret Service protection in a recent Action Alert, but it has failed to drive home the gravity of the threat to RFK Jr.’s life.

Here are the details of the incident and the subsequent arrest.

The Assassination Attempt on RFK Jr.

In mid-September 2023, a man by the name of Adrian Aispuro was arrested outside the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles, where RFK Jr. was delivering a speech as part of National Hispanic Heritage Month celebrations.

The 44-year-old man found himself in police custody after allegedly impersonating a US Marshal while carrying a loaded firearm and displaying US Marshal identification.

The arrest took place following a call to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD). The caller reported Aispuro's presence, describing him as armed and in possession of US Marshal identification.

While the LAPD responded promptly, they skewed the narrative by saying Aispuro did not enter the theater, nor did he brandish his weapon or pose a direct threat to anyone inside.

Kennedy’s Reaction to the Incident

Kennedy expressed gratitude to Gavin de Becker for detecting and detaining the armed individual. The incident accentuates the risks faced by political figures, especially those in campaigns. RFK Jr.'s prior requests for Secret Service protection were denied by the Department of Homeland Security.

The haunting historical context, given the assassinations of Kennedy's father and uncle, deepens the significance of any threat to his safety.

A Stamp Saying “Denied” Denoting the Multiple Unsuccessful Requests for Secret Service Made by RFK Jr.

Protecting Presidential and Vice-Presidential Candidates

The Secret Service has established guidelines for the protection of presidential and vice-presidential candidates in the lead-up to the 2024 election. These guidelines deem "major presidential and vice-presidential candidates" as eligible for protection.

However, it is specified that such protection should be granted within one year before the general election. Protection more than a year prior is considered only under exceptional, case-by-case circumstances and in consultation with the committee, based on threat assessments and other factors.

Does the Assassination Attempt on RFK Jr. Necessitate Secret Service Protection?

The Kennedy campaign reiterated its concerns and requested Secret Service protection again in August, only to face another refusal. This prompted the campaign to make a third application in late September. At the time of writing this, RFK Jr. remains as protected as he was when Aispuro was arrested.

Wondering whether the hint of an assassination attempt on RFK Jr. necessitates Secret Service protection is like wondering the same for his father, Senator Robert F. Kennedy, and uncle, President John F. Kennedy. The time to ponder is long past, and it’s high time Kennedy gets the protection he needs.

The assassination of Robert F. Kennedy in 1968 was a moment that forever altered the course of American history. He was a tour de force whose assassination remains a point of contention and controversy.

One voice that has emerged as a prominent advocate for re-examining the circumstances of RFK's murder is none other than his son, RFK Jr. Click here for his thoughts on his father and uncle’s assassinations.

On a recent episode of Club Random with Bill Maher, the now-presidential candidate sat down with Maher and made some compelling points regarding his father's murder.

The Autopsy Report

A critical piece of evidence that RFK Jr. has pointed to is the autopsy report. He highlights the findings of Thomas Noguchi, the coroner who conducted an autopsy on his father's body.

Noguchi's meticulous examination led him to conclude that the shots that killed Senator Robert F. Kennedy came from behind, contradicting the idea that Sirhan Bishara Sirhan, who was in front of him, was the only person to fire a gun that day.

Eyewitness Accounts

RFK Jr. has drawn attention to the 77 eyewitnesses present during the assassination. According to these accounts, Sirhan was never in a position to have fired the fatal shots.

Their testimonies raise questions about the accuracy of the official narrative and point to the possibility of a second gunman.

RFK Jr.’s Revisits the RFK Assassination

In the podcast, RFK Jr. said that there were eight bullets in Sirhan’s barrel. He fired two of them at his father, one clipping his ear and getting lodged in a door jamb and the other hitting Paul Schrade, who was standing beside him.

He was then tackled to the ground by six men, one of whom, Rafer Johnson, tried to get the gun out of Sirhan’s hand. He failed to get Sirhan to let go of the weapon, leading the latter to fire the remaining shots but not at the Senator but away from him.

In conclusion, Sirhan stood facing RFK, whereas the four fatal shots came from the back. If all of Sirhan’s bullets are accounted for, the idea of a second gunman becomes very real.

Seeking the Truth

In light of these discrepancies and unanswered questions, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is not content with accepting the official account of his father's assassination.

Instead, he advocates for a thorough re-examination of the case, the evidence, and the individuals involved.

An Officer Holding the Light-Gray Jacket Found on the Killer’s Escape Route

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

The findings of Warren Commission will have you believe that Lee Harvey Oswald killed Officer Tippit while fleeing the chaos that naturally follows the assassination of any political figure, let alone one as important as the President of the United States.

His connection to the assassination of Officer Tippit is based on flimsy evidence, such as the Eisenhower-style light-gray jacket that was recovered in the direction the killer was said to have escaped after firing his gun at Tippit—more on that in our most recent article.

Let’s see if the jacket belonged to Oswald or even the killer, shall we?

Marina Oswald's Testimony

Marina Oswald claimed to recognize the jacket as one of two belonging to her husband. However, she stated that both of Oswald's jackets had come from and were purchased in the Soviet Union.

The jacket found in a parking lot two blocks from the Tippit crime scene was identified as a brand sold in clothing stores in Los Angeles and Philadelphia, a clear indication that it had not originated in Russia.

A Weak Link in the Chain

The Eisenhower jacket stands as the weakest link in the government's chain of evidence against Oswald in the assassination of Officer Tippit.

The jacket, officially labeled as Warren Commission exhibit 162, was reportedly found partially hidden underneath a 1954 Oldsmobile in a parking space behind Ballew's Texaco service station.

However, the circumstances surrounding its discovery remain shrouded in mystery. No one saw the killer place it there, and the identity of the person who found the jacket is unclear.

Unreliable Witness Testimonies

Witnesses who observed the gunman fleeing from the scene generally disagreed on whether the found jacket matched the one worn by Officer Tippit's killer.

Some either failed to identify the jacket, while others explicitly stated that it did not match the garment worn by the assailant. In the end, even the Warren Commission was forced to conclude that the witness accounts varied with regard to the jacket.

The Discrepancies

Authorities attempted to connect the jacket to Oswald by claiming that some fibers found on it matched the brown shirt Oswald had been wearing when he was arrested.

However, witnesses consistently described the killer as wearing a white shirt, not a brown one, adding further uncertainty to the jacket's relevance.

Take a Closer Look at the Assassination of Officer Tippit

The inconsistencies, lack of concrete links, and conflicting witness testimonies cast significant doubt on the jacket’s relevance to the crime and whether Lee Harvey Oswald committed it.

The .38 Smith & Wesson Pistol Linked to Lee Harvey Oswald

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

The official narrative will have you believe that Lee Harvey Oswald murdered Officer J.D. Tippit while fleeing shortly after assassinating President John F. Kennedy. While the latter theory is full of holes that we have identified in the last few decades, we have only just begun to unravel the former.

Click here, or keep reading to know why Oswald couldn’t have owned the .38 Smith & Wesson Pistol, the alleged murder weapon used to kill Tippit.

The Dubious Purchase

Oswald's purported acquisition of the pistol is said to have occurred through an advertisement placed in an April 1963 men's adventure magazine.

According to the narrative, Oswald sent an order form and ten dollars in cash or money order to Seaport Traders of Los Angeles, requesting the pistol be shipped via Railway Express Agency (REA) to his post office box in Dallas.

However, several inconsistencies in this story raise questions about its validity.

Postal Procedures and Regulations

The US Post Office did not handle private cargo for private shipping companies like REA. Instead, the gun should have been sent to REA's facility in downtown Dallas, and a postcard notification would be sent to the buyer's post office box.

The process involved specific rules and regulations, including a certificate of good character, proof of identification, and payment of the balance owed to REA.

There is no record of a certificate of good character, no Form 5024 with proof of ID, and no testimony confirming Oswald or anyone else picking up the .38 Smith & Wesson Pistol.

Lack of Concrete Evidence

Crucially, there is no concrete evidence that these rules were followed in Oswald's case. The Warren Commission provided only a copy of a receipt, not the original, and it was not signed by either Oswald or his supposed alias, A.J. Hidell.

There is no evidence of REA ever sending a postcard to Oswald's P.O. Box, and no one witnessed Oswald or anyone else bringing such a postcard into REA.

In Essence

In essence, there are no Department of Public Safety, police, or clerk records indicating that Lee Harvey Oswald ever obtained this handgun legally. The absence of transaction witnesses and documented payments cast significant doubt on the notion that he personally ordered and received this Smith & Wesson revolver.

The evidence does not support the claim that Oswald bought this gun, an accusation he vehemently denied before his death at the hands of Jack Ruby. Nothing is perplexing, mysterious, or unsolved about the fact that he couldn’t have owned the weapon said to have been used to kill Tippit.
