From time to time, I'm shocked to realize so many people simply believe whatever they hear everyone else saying, despite the fact that their own common sense is telling them something different. Most people think Lee Harvey Oswald, Sirhan Sirhan, and James Earl Ray each acted alone just because that's what they've been told. And if you think otherwise, people assume you're a conspiracy nut (as I bet you're thinking about me right now).
In photo at the top, three respected ministers -- eyewitnesses to the killing of Martin Luther King -- are in complete agreement when they point out to police the direction where the fatal shot came from. But as the second photo shows, the window James Earl Ray supposedly shot from was directly across from the Lorraine Hotel, not above and to the right of the murder scene where the witnesses are pointing to.
Why don't we believe what the people there saw? The same can be said about the assassinations of the Kennedys (see my blog post on it here). In spite of the testimony of eyewitnesses, something has convinced us these were simply crazed acts of lone gunmen.
