The Charge Card

“Did you kill the president?” a reporter asked Oswald.


Oswald begins to crack and tries to turn the tables on his co-conspirators.

“These people have given me a hearing without legal representation or anything.” Oswald stated to reporters.

“Did you kill the President?”

“No I didn’t shoot anyone!” Oswald barked back.

One Shot does the job.
