I don't have a firm conviction about the JFK assassination, but I find myself somewhat inclined towards the theory that the mafia killed him. This is why the CIA has allowed rumors that they did it to persist, and hasn't released more documents: it's more in their interest to be seen as having assassinated a president than that the public believe the mafia could do so. https://youtu.be/Lt2k0SpaB1k

I'm a fan of the notion that a secret service agent panic shot Kennedy by accident.

It's such a parsimonious theory that explains some of the weirdness around the assassination without needing a conspiracy that i appreciate it.
