Officer Tippit was gunned down by Oswald shortly after Kennedy was shot.  The following is an account of the shooting.  Notice how Mr. Callaway, a used car salesmen, saw the murder, picked up Tippit’s gun hailed a cab and proceeded to try and chase down Oswald in order to shoot him.  Ballsy Mr. Callaway, I’ll give you that.

Speaking of Ballsy, or not so much, two telegrams to Ruby, one from “Farmers Branch Coward”
