Default Hello from Sweden!

Hello board! Happy to be... On board!

I'm a Swedish guy in my 30s working in film & television. Living in the south of Sweden.

Rather noob on JTR. I know the basics of the crimes and the story in general. Looking forward to delve a bit deeper..

I'm a true crime and mystery buff.

Some other cases which I have spent much time researching are the assassination of Sweden's Prime Minister Olof Palme (1986) and the Kennedy Assassination.

When it comes to conspiracy theories, I'm generally against them, as the majority of them are based in false facts.

I believe:

-The Apollo program was real (including A11).
-John F. Kennedy was assassinated by LHO.
-9/11 was not an inside job.
-Elvis, Michael Jackson and Prince are all, sadly, dead

In my spare time I like to paint, mostly digital and I like to paint historic events. Perhaps I'll be able to create some JTR work after some research.

Some earlier work can be viewed here: https://www.flickr.com/gp/windh/0930cc


All the best and thanks for having me.

Very nice artwork, Johan.

So, you're from Sweden - you must know Christer Holmgren...

Johan:

Impressive work on the incineration of The Sultana.
Recently, I saw a program which suggested sabotage by a Confederate agent.
It's not as well known an event considering it had stiff competition in the American press in April 1865. Lincoln had been murdered by Booth the day before.

Welcome Johan!

There was an interesting late night radio show about conspiracy theories. An expert explained how many little mistakes happen all the time. When attention is focused on a specific event such as our 9/11, if the mistakes are discovered and put together it looks like a conspiracy.

I will make up what I kind of remember that he said about 9/11. It went something like, one guy should never have been allowed in our country but the regular guy at the entry point was sick with flu and his replacement didn't know what to do. Another couple of those guys should have been deported because they over stayed their visas. Their cases were at the top of a pile but something bigger happened and their papers went to the bottom of the pile. Someone did try to tell someone these guys were getting flight training but did not want to learn how to land. The person who took the report had a heart attack two days later and nobody followed up. (LIKE I SAY I AM MORE OR LESS MAKING THIS UP, BUT THIS WAS THE GIST OF 9/11. THERE WAS LOTS MORE.)

I analyse all the conspiracy theories like that now. As for JtR, lots of people made lots of money on JtR conspiracy theory books. After a couple years on the Forum I figure the murders were basically random and Jack was a lone psychopath, sane or insane.

Hi Anna. Yes, that seems like a very reasonable approach to conspiracy theories.

Thanks Howard. Interesting. I'd like to read more about the whole incident.
