I got 8 out of 9!!!............I picked the JFK assassination instead of the St. Valentines Day massacre!!..................I have always wondered!...At the fatal shot, the MOTION alone of the president`s head appears as though he was shot from the right front (grassy knoll). And yet on impact there is no brain matter or debris which exits from the rear of the head. There is just alot of brain matter exploding from the right front temple area as seen on the film (hundreds of times), which indicates or appears to me like an exit wound by a shot coming from the rear into the back of the head and exiting the right front temple!! The head motion and the debris pattern that is seen at impact don`t add up!
 
I did see that Peter Jennings narrative special on the "History Channel" with the new computer technology, that breaks everything on the Zapruder film down, frame by frame and debunking the conspiracy theorists that Oswald could not have acted alone! Either Oswald acted alone or someone used his rifle from the 6th floor! He or someone else had enough time!
 
And as the TV special showed through angle testing, it was very likely that in fact, the first strike from the Carcano struck Kennedy in the upper back from behind, went through him and then hit Connelly. The film shows they both reacted at the very same time to being hit.
 
I see only two hits! The first, got both at the same time by their reaction and then the fatal head shot being the second. Certainly enough time in between to recover, cycle the bolt, aim and fire!..............I have the digitalized version of that film!

I read a book about a decade ago---and would take me six months to remember the title---that fairly well concluded ( NOT OFFICIALLY, of course, 'cause the "official" whitewash is all wrapped up now....) that the Fatal Brain-splattering shot must have come from the ground level and was a secret service agent's M-16 accidental discharge during the "speeding up" rush to leave the scene.  Hence the explanation for people on the sidewalk smelling gunsmoke---No one would have smelled gunsmoke from the sixth storey window! And the gaping wound--not a 6.5mm steel jacket- type wound.......more like a Vietnam-era 223.

............Regardless of what really happened, had a competent forensics autopsy been done after the assassination, IN DALLAS by COMPETENT forensic pathologists, this mystery would have been solved in late `63 or in `64 as to how many bullets were fired, their caliber or calibers and from what direction they came from and quite possibly from WHOM!

8 out of 9

Fell victim to Chicago scum cleaners too.  JFK  assassination would make you think the FBI would pull out all the stops not the St. Valentines Day massacre. 

Steph, you get a pass on some of those!!!


  It's a Guy thing.
