Now, what actually happened? All we can do is look at this moment in the footage and see what it shows.
In the KRLD footage, we don't get to anything like the Jackson photo. What happens is that as soon as he shoots, Ruby has LC Graves controlling his arm, preventing him from aiming it as we see above. And by then, Oswald is up on his toes.
So, there is nothing comparable to the Jackson photo to be found.
Here's another video, although I don't know the source of it. We can't see Oswald, but we can see Graves controlling Ruby's arm which means that he can't be pointing it at Oswald:
So, that can't possibly have captured the Jackson image as we know it.
The famous NBC footage doesn't show anything. You don't see Oswald after the shooting. You see Ruby from behind, and then you see him disappear into the circle of men, but you don't see Oswald. You can't confirm the Jackson photo from the NBC footage.
So, there is no film confirmation of the Jackson photo. None of the filmers caught what Bob Jackson caught.
What if we compare the Beers photo to Jackson? There is only six-tenth of a second between them, say the experts.
OK, so Ruby is about to shoot Oswald on the left. He obviously didn't shoot him through his arm. So that means he shot and put a hole in Oswald, and then Oswald raised his left arm and brought it up over the entire area of trauma, which prevents us from seeing anything- no disruption of him or his clothing.
Let's look at the Beers photo by itself.
So, Ruby hasn't fired yet, but he's about to. Let's say that he fires in .3 seconds, which is reasonable. Until he fires, we don't presume any change on Oswald's part. So, after he fires, Oswald has .3 seconds to get to this:
Do you think that Oswald could do that in .3 seconds? I ask because LC Graves is restraining his upper arm. It seems like it would slow him down. But, is that even a normal reaction? Is it normal for a person who is shot in the chest to swing his arm over and onto the area of entry? I have never seen such a thing before. Have you? Also, I wonder if Ruby could relocate himself from being at Oswald's side to being in front of him in .3 seconds.
In the Beers photo, it does seem like he is going to blow a bullet hole through Oswald's arm if he fires without raising the muzzle.
But, the bottom line is this: in the Jackson photo, Oswald's left hand atop his chest is an anatomical monstrosity if viewed as one hand. It simply cannot be his left hand. And, if it is viewed as his left and right hand together, as in praying, that doesn't work either because he can't have his left and right arms arising from the left side of his body.
So, it's either an anatomically impossible left hand or anatomically impossible right and left hands. Take your pick. Either way, it doesn't work. It is a fraudulent image, and there is no longer the slightest doubt about it.
