Jacob Leon Rubenstein / Jack Leon Ruby    1911-1967

 

 

 

 

A big question in Dallas

is why Jack Ruby shot and killed Lee Harvey Oswald

as the man accused of assassinating President Kennedy

was being transferred from one jail to another,

on Nov. 25, 1963.

 

Ruby, whose real name is Rubenstein,

is pictured as he was taken before a justice of the peace

to be arraigned on murder charges.

50th anniversary of the JFK assassination

November 22, 2013

Nov. 22, 1963, midnight -

 

(Lee Harvey) Oswald

is paraded in front of the press.

 

At the back of the room

is one man who is not

a policeman or a reporter,

a man who carries a gun

and has underworld connections.

 

His name is Jacob Rubenstein,

known as Jack Ruby.

 

In less than 36 hours,

he will murder Lee Harvey Oswald.

 

Ruby is a police informer

who owned a striptease club

and made sure that policemen

who came to his club

were shown a good time.

 

He was known

to be an impulsive,

quick tempered man

who loved to fight.

 

He also knew people

who were in organized crime.

 

In 1963,

Sam and Joe Campisi

were leading figures

in the Dallas underworld.

 

Jack knew the Campisis

and had been seen with them

on many occasions.

 

The Campisis were lieutenants

of Carlos Marcello, the Mafia boss

who had reportedly talked

of killing the President.

 

(...)

 

Nov 24. 11:21 AM:

Oswald is shot by Ruby.

 

Posner:

“Ruby yells as he’s shooting,

“You killed my president,

you rat!”

 

He’s then tackled

by the police around him

and in the few seconds

after the shooting

through the time

he’s taken into the jail,

he says a series of things.

 

“You guys,”

meaning the police,

“couldn’t do it. I did it for you.

I had to show that a Jew has guts.

I’m happy that I got him.”

 

Oswald

never regains consciousness

after Jack Ruby shoots him.

Millions of Americans

watched on television on Nov. 24, 1963,

as Jack Ruby, a Dallas nightclub owner,

gunned down

President John F. Kennedy's assassin,

Lee Harvey Oswald.
