50 Years ago, two days after John F Kennedy was assassinated , a one time bar and strip club owner Jack Ruby shot Lee Harvey Oswald, in the basement of a Dallas police station. Ruby was put on trial for the murder approximately 3 months after he shot Oswald, with opening statements on March 5th, 1964.
