‘Honey, it’s like war. The president is a national security threat. If I don’t do it, we’ll be in a nuclear war very soon…matters were taken out of our hands a long time ago.’ – Roscoe White 11/21/63
‘Kennedy has been a pretty good president, but he has to die. He didn’t carry out his own orders. If I don’t carry out my orders, I’ll have to die, too.’-Roscoe White to his pastor, Jack Shaw, 1971
‘I was Mandarin, the man behind the stockade fence who fired two shots. ’ –Roscoe White’s diary
‘The diary said after my father shot the President he handed his 7.65 Mauser to the man standing beside him, hurled over the fence, took the film from the military man, whirled around the fence and went through the parking lot.’ –Ricky White, 1990
Government shills and ‘debunkers’ say that Roscoe White’s tale of shooting JFK, J.D. Tippit and functioning as a member of the JFK witness elimination program has been debunked, but this is not the case, and many facts remain unchallenged. These naïve/dishonest types hope that investigators might be fooled into ‘throwing the baby out with the bathwater’ here in Roscoe White’s case.
In the early 1990’s Sam Giancana’s memoirs were published in abook called Double Cross which named Roscoe White as Tippit’s killer. Some time earlier, a man named Ricky White came upon the scene with his tale of finding out that his deceased father had participated in the JFK assassination. Ricky White told the tale of finding his dead father’s diary and mementos which implicated his father, Roscoe White, in the dead man’s own words and handwriting. Ricky White went on to accuse the FBI of stealing the diary from him while they investigated the matter so that he could not present it to the public.
Sometime later, a dishonest JFK researcher named Joe H. West discovered that Ricky’s mother and Roscoe White’s widow, Geneva White, was in desperate need of money for her medical bills. Evidently, under the advice of Mr. West, Mrs. White concocted a bogus 2nd diary of Roscoe White in the hopes of financial gain. This work was revealed as a hoax shortly thereafter and was used to discredit Ricky White’s factual account of his father’s authentic diary thereafter. Ricky White played no part in the bogus 2nd diary scheme and actually pointed out that its weepy tone and handwriting were much different than the genuine diary of Roscoe White.
