Obeservation of Kenney assasignation coming up

DALLAS - About 45 minutes after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in downtown Dallas, Officer J.D. Tippit was on patrol in the nearby Oak Cliff neighborhood when he slowed down as he saw a man who met the vague description of the suspect walking down the street. Moments later, after Tippit gets out of his patrol car, Lee Harvey Oswald opens fire, killing Tippit instantly. For the month of November, which marks the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's assassination and Tippit's slaying, police officers can wear a special badge paying tribute to the fallen officer. It's a gesture appreciated by his 85-year-old widow, Marie Tippit, who said the badge not only honors her him but also serves as a reminder of all of those who have died in the line of duty. "It also reminds any of the people who look at that badge how fast an officer can be killed protecting the city of Dallas," she said.
