Subject: Officer who arrested Lee Harvey Oswald has died

Written By: GWBush2004 on 01/28/05 at 11:59 pm

The policeman who arrested Lee Harvey Oswald after John F Kennedy was assassinated has died, aged 76.

Nick McDonald apprehended Oswald at a Dallas cinema moments after Kennedy was shot on November 22 1963.

"He made a fist and, bam, hit me right between the eyes," Mr McDonald said years afterward. "Knocked my hat off. I came back and hit him."

It wasn't until later in the day that the officer realised whom he had captured.

Mr McDonald died at a Arkansas hospital of complications from diabetes.

In a memoir, The Arrest and Capture of Lee Harvey Oswald, he recalled going to the back of the cinema after police received a tip that a suspicious man had entered without paying.

"As I peeked through the heavy curtains out into the audience pointed out the suspect," he wrote.

As the two officers confronted Oswald, the suspect said: "Well, it's all over now." But when they tried to search and handcuff him, Oswald pulled a pistol and tried to fire. Mr McDonald grabbed the weapon from Oswald, and finally subdued him.

...and the coverup continues.

Strangely most of the people who had direct contact with details of the JFK assasination have died.  Coincidence?  ???
