According to Dear, the fact that the police never fingerprinted Jason or took DNA samples only makes his guilt even more likely! But perhaps the worst thing about the whole idea is how it perversely makes O.J. himself both a victim and a hero, the Jean Valjean of this les miserable shit pile, who bravely sacrificed himself so his maniac of a son could go on ... not killing other people? I don't know what the endgame of his research is, but hey, it might've sold a few paperbacks!

There's A Theory That A Secret Service Agent Shot Kennedy By Accident
Partly thanks to the grandstanding of crank Louisiana attorney Jim Garrison, the assassination of John F. Kennedy spawned a whole slew of conspiracy theories about who was really responsible. The least-known but maybe the most creative one is that a real butterfingers of a Secret Service agent, startled by Oswald's shots, accidentally discharged his firearm into the brainpan of our 35th president.
This theory, the sad trombone noise of conspiracies, is promoted by people like Bonar Menninger, an Iowa newspaperman and author of Mortal Error: The Shot That Killed JFK. The details of what would be the biggest "SHIT. MY BAD!" in history explains some of the elements that fuel other theories (that Oswald's headshot would have been hard as hell to pull off, the supposed inconsistencies in JFK's wounds) without buying into any larger web of conspiracies.
Menninger says that Secret Service agent George Hickey was rolling along with Kennedy's motorcade when Oswald started shooting. One shot hit Kennedy in the neck (which may or may not have been fatal), then Hickey hovered a finger over the trigger of his AR-15 right as his car jerked to a stop behind Kennedy's limo. Hickey jumped, squeezed, and planted one in the president's noggin. Then later, his colleagues covered up the accident and blamed the kill shot on Oswald, not wanting to ruin the guy's life when there was an actual would-be assassin at hand.
