Tannenbaum tackles charter school debate in 'Trap'

- 'Trap' is author and trial attorney Robert K. Tannebaum's 27th novel. 'It's about people who have a delusional belief system that rationalizes illegality for the so-called public good. That kind of a mindset usually leads to tragedy particularly for people in public life."

The story centers around charter schools and the battle surrounding them.

Long before he was writing about hot button issues like charter schools, Tannenbaum was working on Capitol Hill as a member of the investigative team examining the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy.

Tannenbaum, who has never lost a felony trial, says he questions the belief that  Lee Harvey Oswald was Kennedy's killer. 

"In my judgment, having tried a couple of hundred of cases to verdict, I don't believe Oswald would have been convicted in a court in America. The evidence is highly suspect. There is a lot to answer from the executive intelligence agencies," said Tannenbaum.

According to the attorney and writer, doctors saw a gaping hole in the President's head. Police officers and witnesses have claimed they saw the hole.

But autopsy photos and the Zapruder film-- which were confiscated for several years-- do not show a hole.
