Although the U.S. Establishment's mass media usually claim that Lee Oswald killed Dallas Police Officer Tippit on Nov. 22, 1963, former New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison denied that this was a possibility. According to Garrison's book, On The Trail Of The Assassins, Earlene Roberts, Oswald's housekeeper, observed Oswald:
"...standing by the northbound Beckley Avenue bus at 1:04. The area where Tippit was killed was in the opposite direction--a mile to the south...It was virtually impossible for him to have arrived at the scene before the shooting of the police officer."
