At Jack Ruby's trial, his lawyer, Melvin Belli, argued that Ruby suffered with "psychomotor epilepsy" that the shooting was done as an "automation" for which Ruby had no memory.
But that is RIDICULOUS! I know about automations. It refers to repetitive movements that are without purpose. It does not refer to going up to somebody and sticking a gun in his side and pulling the trigger. That could not possibly be an epileptic automation. Was Belli out of his mind?
But wait!! The other lawyer, Ruby's first lawyer, said that Ruby killed Oswald to spare Jackie a trip back to Dallas for trial since, of course, she would be called as a witness at Oswald's trial. But, if that's true, then he knew what he was doing, and it wasn't epilepsy.
But, let's look further at why Melvin Belli went the route that he did. Why would he claim that Ruby had no memory of shooting Oswald? There can only be one reason, and that is because Ruby told him he had no memory of shooting Oswald.
So, that means that at some point, they must have had the following conversation:
Melvin Belli: Tell me exactly what happened, Jack.
Jack Ruby: I don't know. I don't remember a thing about shooting Oswald. I just remember going to the garage, and there were a bunch of people there, and suddenly police started pouncing on me, and I started saying to them, "What are you doing? I'm Jack Ruby. You know me." And then they got me inside, and they told me I shot Oswald. But, I'm telling you, I don't remember a thing about it.
If I did it, I must have been in a trance or something because I don't remember a thing.
Where Melvin Belli went wrong was not considering that Jack Ruby couldn't remember shooting Oswald precisely because he didn't. SO, WHY DIDN'T HE CONSIDER IT?????????
He didn't consider it because he couldn't imagine that that magnitude of evil was possible in American law enforcement. This is the United States of America, the land of the brave, and the home of the free. Things like that don't happen here. Maybe in Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia, but not here. The result was that the lawyers of hapless Jack Ruby were just as hapless as he was.
I have located the complete transcript of the trial of Jack Ruby. I downloaded it, so I've got it. You can find it right here:
Note that this is Volume 2, and so far, I have been unable to locate Volume 1. The first witness called in this volume was Detective LC Graves. He was asked about the handcuffing, and he said that Oswald's right wrist was cuffed to Leavelle's left wrist, and Oswald's two wrists were cuffed together. THAT IS NOT TRUE, AND WE CAN SEE IT WITH OUR OWN EYES. You only have to look at the Jackson photo to see that Oswald's two hands were NOT cuffed together. But, how could Graves be mistaken about a thing like that?
I just started reading this thing, and already I got to a lie. But, I'm going to keep going, and I will share the lies to come, of which I'm sure there will be many.
