The Day They Splattered JFK


President John F. Kennedy was shot, on the 22nd day of the 11th month of 1963, and killed, in an event which would prove to live in history.
Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested an hour and twenty minutes after the shooting, but Oswald was shot and killed by Jack Ruby before he could be brought to trial.

Conspiracy theories abound on the number of shots fired, the number of shooters, and the location and identity of the shooter(s).

A team of experts assembled by the Discovery Channel has recreated the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Using modern blood spatter analysis, new artificial human body surrogates, and 3-D computer simulations, and a mock-up of the Dallas, Texas crime scene (including the depository, the "grassy knoll," and other nearby landmarks) the two experts found a simulated gunshot wound to the head that closely matched the wound Kennedy suffered. Most of the simulated body material had spattered forward into the car, consistent with a shot that entered the back of the head and exited toward the front..
"We might never know if Oswald pulled the trigger, but when you look at the wind pattern, the spread of the debris, the angles and distances involved, it's consistent with a shot from the sixth floor depository,"~Doug Martin


Do you Lib's still want to call your boy "The Next JFK"... or "Lincoln"?
Be careful what you wish for.
