Six of out of seven Oswald mock trials ended without convictions

Larry Schnapf is an attorney in New York who is a leading legal effors to secure release of the last of the secret JFK files in October 2021, as mandated by the JFK Records Act of 1992. I’ll be reportin more on those efforts in coming weeks.)

Meanwhile, Schnapf adds some important about mock trial of Lee Harvey Oswald, the supposed assassin of Kennedy, that I did not know.

Oswald at Texas Theater

Six of seven [JFK] mock trials conducted by bar associations or law schools since 1967 have resulted in either hung juries or acquittals. The only mock trial that ended in a guilty verdict was indeed the event in England with Bugliosi and Gerry Spence. The latter didn’t appear to take the event seriously and seemed to rely on courtroom theatrics rather than evidence

This is a good indicator of the weakness of the official theory of JFK’s assassin. When the case against Oswald is made, randomly drawn juries do not, in general, convict him.

This confirms something I say often.

There are lot of unbelievable JFK theories in circulation and the idea that one man alone killed Kennedy for no reason is one of them.
