evidence and indicated that the first shot may have missed, perhaps
the seperate works of TIME/LIFE magazine; the U.S. Secret Service; and
the Federal Bureau of Investigation (each of whom established a first
shot impact location) would suffice to demonstrate that the first shot
most assuredly did not "MISS!".

Time/Life magazine, the Secret Service and the FBI established the
location of the limousine when the first bullet struck a victim.

The FBI and others did not ask witnesses to describe the location of
the limo when they heard the first shot. So you should not equate the
first strike with the first shot.

Not exactly and each had a slightly different idea of when the shot hit.

The Warren Commission never said for sure which shot missed.
The FBI said the first shot hit Kennedy, the second shot hit Connally
and the last shot hit Kennedy.

The visual evidence indicates both JFK and JBC were hit at or about
Z222. This is well after we see JBC and Rosemary Willis reacting to
hearing a shot. In addition, JBC distinctly remembers hearing a shot
an looking first right and then turning back to his left when he felt
the second shot hit him. These were two distinct events. JBC's
recollection is corroborated by what we see in the Z-film. He is seen
reacting to a shot beginning at Z164, well before JFK or he was hit.
This shot might have ricocheted and gone on to cause the injury to
Tague's cheek, and if that is the case, then I suppose technically
that shot didn't miss, but it definitely did not hit either JFK or
JBC.

Yeah and what gets me is that damn bullet, or pieces thereof, are
somewhere embedded in dirt, or trees, or perhaps a wall or asphalt
somewhere in a general southwesterly direction from Dealey.

I'm not terribly concerned with figuring out exactly where this bullet
went and what it did. If it was responsible for Tague's injury, so what.
There are any number of possibilities. It is sufficient simply to
determine that this shot did not strike JFK, JBC, or anyone or anything
inside the limo. What became of it isn't terribly important, any more than
the shot(s) fired at Tippit that apparently missed the intended victim.

I don't think anyone can prove which shot missed, but 5 were fired and
only 4 were recovered. And the wounds tend to indicate that only 4 hit.

If there was a missed shot, it was probably one of the ones fired

fired across the hood?

As I pointed out, the witnesses put the number of shots at from 2 to 5. So
how do you conclude that witnesses who said three shots were fired across
the hood were correct? You don't establish anything by relying solely on
eyewitness accounts because eyewitnesses are terribly unreliable. We know
that some of the eyewitnesses to the Tippit murder got the number of shots
wrong.

It is a reasonable conclusion based on the fact that 3 Winchester bullets
and 1 Remington bullets were removed from Tippit's body, but the recovered
shells were two of each make. The most likely explaination is that not all
the shells were recovered and that at least one shot missed. The missed
shot would be one of the Remingtons, while one of the three Winchester
shells were not recovered. It is remotely possible that at least one of
the Remington shells had been reloaded with a Winchester bullet, but that
seems a little far fetched to me. The missed shot seems to be the most
likely explaination. It is even possible Oswald fired six times and missed
twice. The witnesses at the scene reported anywhere from 2 to 5 shots. Go
figure.

bigdog,

It's possible SSA Hickey heard something just after turning the corner.
We can see him leaning to his left and looking down at the street, then to
his left scanning the crowd. All other agents do not react until the
Altgens photo. Several of them admit they thought the first loud pop was
a firecracker.

I do not pretend to know precisely which frame the early missed shot
occurred at because we have no defintive event that allows us to pinpoint
it. Z313 gives us proof positive of the when the headshot occured. The
bulging of JBC's jacket at Z224 followed by the simultaneous arm movements
by JFK and JBC at Z226 tell us both had been struck by a bullet a few
frames before. We don't know precisely how many frames, but I think it is
safe to say that bullet struck within one or two frames of Z222.

We have no similar event for the first shot. We are left to conjucture
when that bullet was fired based on observable actions by people in the
film. Unfortunately, we don't know how long it took for them to react to
what they heard. JBC begins a very definitive movement at Z164 which he
later said was a reaction to hearing the first shot, but how long did it
take for him to recognize what he heard as a gunshot and react to it? Who
knows. Rosemary Willis' reaction was much more gradual than JBC's head
snap and began about a half second after his reaction. Was JFK reacting to
the sound of a gunshot at Z155. Maybe, but there are other possible
explainations for that and with no definitive corroborating evidence, we
can't say with any certainty. I tend to doubt JFK recognized the first
shot as a gunshot. It's hard for me to believe he would continue to wave
to the crowd on Elm St. if he had just heard and recognized a gunshot a
few seconds earlier. If he hear that first shot, my belief is he didn't
know what it was.

We have no similar event for the first shot. We are left to conjucture
when that bullet was fired based on observable actions by people in the
film. Unfortunately, we don't know how long it took for them to react to
what they heard. JBC begins a very definitive movement at Z164 which he
later said was a reaction to hearing the first shot, but how long did it
take for him to recognize what he heard as a gunshot and react to it? Who
knows. Rosemary Willis' reaction was much more gradual than JBC's head
snap and began about a half second after his reaction. Was JFK reacting to
the sound of a gunshot at Z155. Maybe, but there are other possible
explainations for that and with no definitive corroborating evidence, we
can't say with any certainty. I tend to doubt JFK recognized the first
shot as a gunshot. It's hard for me to believe he would continue to wave
to the crowd on Elm St. if he had just heard and recognized a gunshot a
few seconds earlier. If he hear that first shot, my belief is he didn't
know what it was.
Then in your next breath you say that conspiracy believers are not allowed
to conjecture. That we have to prove every little bit. But you are free to
babble on and on.

Since the Warren Commission somewhat "misdirected" the factual
evidence and indicated that the first shot may have missed, perhaps
the seperate works of TIME/LIFE magazine; the U.S. Secret Service; and
the Federal Bureau of Investigation (each of whom established a first
shot impact location) would suffice to demonstrate that the first shot
most assuredly did not "MISS!".
http://educationforum.ipbhost.com/index.php?showtopic=17272
The visual evidence indicates both JFK and JBC were hit at or about
Z222. This is well after we see JBC and Rosemary Willis reacting to
hearing a shot. In addition, JBC distinctly remembers hearing a shot
an looking first right and then turning back to his left when he felt
the second shot hit him. These were two distinct events. JBC's
recollection is corroborated by what we see in the Z-film. He is seen
reacting to a shot beginning at Z164, well before JFK or he was hit.
This shot might have ricocheted and gone on to cause the injury to
Tague's cheek, and if that is the case, then I suppose technically
that shot didn't miss, but it definitely did not hit either JFK or
JBC.
***The visual evidence indicated none of the Secret Service agents
appeared as if responding to a report in the vicinity of Z164.  The
lack of any reaction by any of the Secret Service agents, indicated
that there was not an early shot fired.

We see two people who made definitive reactions to the early shot,
Rosemary Willis and John Connally. The fact that we don't see a
visible reaction from the SS agents doesn't mean they have not heard a
shot. They might have heard it and not recognized it as a gun shot or
they might have heard it, recognized it as a gun shot and were
scanning the crowd to determine the source, or they might simply have
not heard it due to the roar of the motorcycles. Clint Hill only
remembers hearing two shots. What is more likely? That some
indiividuals did not react to a gun shot that happened or that some
individuals reacted to a gun shot that did not happen.
***Where are the definitive reactions by the Secret Service agents, who
were paid to protect the President? The fact that we don't see a reaction
by ANY of half a dozen agents, to a loud report, indicates there was no
such report just before Connally turned his head at Z164. It does not
matter whether they recognized it as a gunshot, Landis said he responded
to it, by looking at the back right tire, then turning to the rear. He
was unaware it was a gunshot at the time. Prior to exiting the Zapruder
film, Landis was just casually observing the crowd.

If the roar of the motorcycles would have drowned out the first shot, it
would have done the same to the other shots. The agents would have been
left wondering why JFK's head suddenly exploded.

Mrs. Johnson, riding behind the boat load of agents, described the first
shot as loud. I am sure the agents could have heard it above the roar of
the motorcycles.

Warren Commission--to Drommer:

1.

One merely has to find "common ground" in order to accomplish many
things.

Elm Tree----- Loading Image...


First Lamp Post----- http://history-matte...Vol18_0050a.htm


Common to Warren Commission survey plat as well as the Drommer plat.

2. Now, if one draws a line:

A. Down the center of Elm St* on the Drommer survey plat (which
happens to accurately go through that point on the Drommer plat marked
with center of street elevation 94.2)

B. And then draws a line across Elm St. on the Drommer plat, which
runs from the center of the 6-inch Elm tree, directly across the
street to the street lamp;

C. Then a "common ground" location can be established on the WC survey
plat in direct correlation with the Drommer Plat.

*It is noted that although all "Stationing numbers of Mr. West (during
the WC/FBI/& SS Survey works) runs down the exact center of Elm St.,
JFK's plotted/platted position is approximately 1.5 feet left of
center in the direction of travel.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

And, as accurately as can be determined, the intersection of the
centerline of street line, with the Elm tree to lamp post line, is at
approximate survey stationing (from the WC survey plat) of 3+55.4.
Which of course can now be transferred directly to the Drommer Plat.

Recalling that the SS as well as the FBI both established First Shot
Impact location of survey stationing 3+81.3, with street elevation of
423.07, one can, to some degree of accuracy, (plus utilization of the
Drommer scale in this exact area), now plot the impact location of the
first shot fired as determined by the SS & FBI during their seperate
and independent assassination re-enactments.

In addition,the Elm tree and south curb of Elm St. also provide, on
the Drommer plat, the "starting point" from which to determine the
impact location for the first shot fired as determined during the TIME/
LIFE survey work of 11/26/63.

If accurately plotted onto the Drommer survey plat, this demonstrates
the approximate* difference between the TIME/LIFE survey work and the
SS/FBI survey work.

In event that anyone is actually following along, posting of this
approximate* distance would be beneficial as there has never been
anyone else with whom this data could be compared.

*It is "approximate" due to the slight deficiencies in measurement
accuracies of the TIME/LIFE works; coupled with mere transfer of data
from one survey plat to another, when dealing with scales of 1-inch =
10 feet.

NOTE: There exists other similar "common ground" aspects of the WC/
Drommer survey plats in which one can accomplish similar correlations
as well as utilize the information as a cross-check of other data.

P.S.

Would post the drawings to demonstrate, but am working from a library
computer and do not have the ability to provide attachments any
longer.

I am not sure what you are trying to prove. It will take me a couple of
centuries to decode your cryptic message. If your only point is that the

Yes, and other maps as well.
But remember that Dealey Plaza changed between 1963 and 1978 and each
map reflects conditions at the time. Do you know why the Drommer &
Associates map that everyone is using says "Revised 6 March 1981"?

A very significant percentage of ALMOST HALF of all known witnesses
stated that at least one shot was fired from a location that was not
the Houston-Elm intersection.

(and several of the Houston-Elm intersection witnesses specifically
stated that at least one shot was fired from a location that was NOT
the TSBD)

Every known close witness who spoke of watching JFK start his 170 wave
stated that 170 wave had already started, and THEN the first shot was
fired, and that JFK immediately reacted rapidly to it.

(and at 166, JFK was already 6' past his first being hidden out of
sight under the tree from any TSBD snipers lair view)

Hugh Betzner stated that he took his famous 186 photo, and THEN the
first shot he heard was fired

Abe Zapruder said the first shot he heard happened right before JFK
went behind the sign at 207. Zapruder's largest and longest duration
of blurs in his film before JFK's head exploded starts at 190, just
before JFK went behind the sign.

(in the CBS '67 shots recreations tests, every test movie camera
filmers noticeably jiggled their cameras every single time a shot was
fired)

Rosemary Willis stated she heard the first shot she heard, and THEN
she started slowing down trotting while she looked back towards the
Houston-Elm intersection. In the Zap film we can see that Rosemary
started slowing down trotting at 193.

SSAgent George Hickey stated that immediately upon hearing the first
shot he heard he partially stood up and looked towards JFK.

We can clearly see that in the Zap film Hickey starts to stand up and
turn his head rapidly towards JFK starting at 195.

Phil Willis stated there was a shot just prior to his 202 photo that
startled him so much, and THEN his startle reaction caused his 202
photo.

DPD Martin, riding his cycle to JFK's left-rear, stated he turned
towards JFK just after he heard the first of 3 shots he heard. Martin
starts turning towards JFK at 205.

Charles Bronson (a 350' sound-travel distance away from the TSBD)
stated that he heard a shot just prior to his 228 photo that startled
him so much, and THEN his startle reaction caused his 228 photo.

John Connally stated he heard a shot, and THEN after a short amount
of time during which he thought that shot was an assassination attempt
rifle shot, he was THEN shot and he immediately started yelling.
Connally does not start yelling until 240.

As even the WC admitted, the majority of the known witnesses stated
that the last 2 heard shots were bunched together distinctly much
closer together than the first 2 heard shots.

DPD Chaney, riding only 15' from JFK, repeatedly stated that he heard
a shot, and THEN he looked to his left just in time to see JFK's head
explode with the 2nd shot he heard, then, Chaney heard a 3rd followup
shot. At 255 Chaney is looking directly at JFK.

SSAgent Hickey stated that he was looking behind his followup car,
THEN he turned back towards JFK, and THEN there were 2 more closely
bunched shots. At 255 Hickey is STILL looking behind his followup
car.

SSAgent Kellerman stated that he heard a shot, THEN he turned around
to look towards towards the back of the limo, and THEN he heard 2
more closely bunched shots. In the Zap film, Kellerman starts turning
to look towards the back of the limo at 257.

Many additional known witnesses stated that there was another,
distinctly separate, shot after JFK's head had ALREADY exploded.

You can pretty much make a case for just about any scenario you want
depending on the witnesses you choose to cherry pick. If witnesses were a
reliable way of determining what happened, most of them would tell us the
same thing. If you look at the entire body of eyewitness accounts, you'd
wonder if these people were describing the same event. The only way to
determine if a witness accurately remembers what he saw and heard, you
have to look to corroborating evidence. Almost all witnesses thought they
heard gunshots from one location only. The few you mentioned who thought
they heard a shot from a second location were the exceptions. There was
also a solid consensus for three shots. The earwitnesses who thought they
heard the shots coming from the direction of the TSBD are corroborated by
an eyewitness who saw a shooter fire and several more who located the
rifle before the sniper pulled it back inside the building. Further
corroboration was provided with the discovery of 3 spent shells in the
location the eyewitnesses pointed out and the discovery of a rifle on that
same floor which was later determined to have fired the two recovered
bullets.There is zero corroboration for the witnesses who thought they
heard shots from the GK or any other location.

Not quite. Only a small percentage of the known witnesses were interviewed
and then a small percentage of those gave an opinion as to where the shot
originated. We are left with a small number, although greater than the
TSBD, who said the shots came from the grassy knoll. Enough to lead the
HSCA to test that location.

Yes, but there is a slight difference between when he started to snap the

inside the cone of the shock wave.

What do you think causes the jiggle patterns?
The HSCA tried to match up the jiggle patterns with the acoustical
evidence but had to tie the sequence to the head shot coming from the
TSBD. It works better if you tie it to the head shot coming from the
grassy knoll.

Another factor which might influence our choosing the HSCA version
or mine would be the jiggle analysis of the Zapruder film. Even the HSCA
admitted that the jiggle analysis matched better when the grassy knoll
shot was lined up with Z-313. [2] Figure 3 compares the timing of the
impulses to the Zapruder film. The HSCA rejected the shot which is
indicated in brackets as being too fast for Oswald to have fired. The
jiggle analysis measured the amount of panning error by Zapruder. To
simply and clarify, I have put the groups into ascending order. The group
with the largest amount of blur is marked 'A', the second largest 'B',
etc. I have chosen the Hartmann figures to be representative, as his are
usually midway between Alvarez or Scott's figures. Zapruder's camera ran
at 18.3 frames per second on average.

The jiggle analysis can not be used as absolute proof of when a shot
occurred, but it matches up better for the head shot from the grassy knoll.
Could eyewitness testimony help resolve the question of which shot hit
what? Secret Service agent Clint Hill testified (2H144) that the last
shot he
heard sounded as though it had hit some metal place. If he in fact had heard
the last shot from the TSBD hit the chrome topping, that would not, in
and of
itself, prove that the TSBD shot missed JFK's head, as the dent could have
been caused by a fragment from the head shot. But it would narrow the range
during which the chrome topping was dented to between Z-313 to Z-331 and
make
it more likely that the chrome topping was dented at the same time that the
windshield was cracked, rather than much earlier as some have speculated.
Post by FSHG
(in the CBS '67 shots recreations tests, every test movie camera
filmers noticeably jiggled their cameras every single time a shot was
fired)
Rosemary Willis stated she heard the first shot she heard, and THEN
she started slowing down trotting while she looked back towards the
Houston-Elm intersection. In the Zap film we can see that Rosemary
started slowing down trotting at 193.
SSAgent George Hickey stated that immediately upon hearing the first
shot he heard he partially stood up and looked towards JFK.
We can clearly see that in the Zap film Hickey starts to stand up and
turn his head rapidly towards JFK starting at 195.
Phil Willis stated there was a shot just prior to his 202 photo that
startled him so much, and THEN his startle reaction caused his 202
photo.
DPD Martin, riding his cycle to JFK's left-rear, stated he turned
towards JFK just after he heard the first of 3 shots he heard. Martin
starts turning towards JFK at 205.
Charles Bronson (a 350' sound-travel distance away from the TSBD)
stated that he heard a shot just prior to his 228 photo that startled
him so much, and THEN his startle reaction caused his 228 photo.
John Connally stated he heard a shot, and THEN after a short amount
of time during which he thought that shot was an assassination attempt
rifle shot, he was THEN shot and he immediately started yelling.
Connally does not start yelling until 240.
As even the WC admitted, the majority of the known witnesses stated
that the last 2 heard shots were bunched together distinctly much
closer together than the first 2 heard shots.
DPD Chaney, riding only 15' from JFK, repeatedly stated that he heard
a shot, and THEN he looked to his left just in time to see JFK's head
explode with the 2nd shot he heard, then, Chaney heard a 3rd followup
shot. At 255 Chaney is looking directly at JFK.
SSAgent Hickey stated that he was looking behind his followup car,
THEN he turned back towards JFK, and THEN there were 2 more closely
bunched shots. At 255 Hickey is STILL looking behind his followup
car.
SSAgent Kellerman stated that he heard a shot, THEN he turned around
to look towards towards the back of the limo, and THEN he heard 2
more closely bunched shots. In the Zap film, Kellerman starts turning
to look towards the back of the limo at 257.
Many additional known witnesses stated that there was another,
distinctly separate, shot after JFK's head had ALREADY exploded.
There is a way out for the WC defenders. They can claim that the second
sound after the head shot was fragments hitting the chrome topping.

Why would they do that if it had nothing to do with this event? Since
a sniper in a building was shooting from six floors up, it seem
logical the SS would wish to carry more than one lightweight compact
rifle in case they run into more than one sniper in a building. Like
the "classic triangulation crossfire" we so often hear about. Pistols
would not be as effective on an elevated target that high as would the

are now back to handguns versus rifles, which puts them at a
disadvantage, especially when passing under tall buildings. This new

I would assume the SS only carried handguns in the past that could be kept

rifles. Don’t know about a submachine gun like a Thompson or M-1

Anthony,

I might be mistaken about the SS carrying shotguns. From what I can find
on Inet the SS purchased an acquisition of shotguns in 1970 and the
Remington Model 870 (modified) is currently approved by the SS. I can
find no information about shotguns and the SS prior to 1970 and no
evidence there was a shotgun in the motorcade through Dealey Plaza. I
assume any SS shotgun would be modified to make a tight pattern and fire
pellets less likely to penetrate through the primary target.

Again no evidence the motorcade through Dealey Plaza carried a shotgun
or a Thompson.

In recent years the Heckler & Koch MP5K 9mm was popular with the SS, one
reason being it was easy to carry under a coat jacket. So rapid- fire
hi-tech weapons made a comeback in the SS. Then why was the AR-15 "new
weapon" dropped after the assassination of President Kennedy? It was
lightweight, easy to use, and more accurate at long distance than the
Thompson. Sounds like the perfect weapon to return fire at elevated
targets in office buildings.

So, what is your theory? That the new President decided what weapons the
Secret Service could carry? I wonder if that has anything to do with the
fact that LBJ was almost killed by his own SS agent in his own home?

As author and former Secret Service member Gerald Blaine explains, he was
guarding Johnson's home in Washington the night after Kennedy was killed
when he heard suspicious footsteps. Blaine loudly activated his submachine
gun, hoping to warn the unknown figure off, but the footsteps continued.
In Blaine's account, he brought the gun to his chest and put his finger on
the trigger ? only to see that the man was Johnson himself.

The United States Secret Service used the Uzi as their standard submachine
gun from the 1960s until the early 1990s, when it was phased out and
replaced with the Heckler & Koch MP5 and FN P90. When President Ronald
Reagan was shot on March 30, 1981 outside of the Washington Hilton Hotel

Uzi out of a briefcase and covered the rear of the presidential limousine
as it sped to safety with the wounded president inside.[5]

When i watch COPS or other similar shows, the patrol officer calls in
"shots fired" when the suspect they are chasing, shoots at them, even
though it doesn't do any good in terms of stopping the perpetrator.
It lets others know there is imminent danger. Imagine the motor
officer next to JFK had heard "shots fired" from the motor officer
further down the street, over his radio, just after Z160. What might
have transpired next, that might have saved JFK's life?

I don't believe the first shot missed, however, thus no one would have

had been fired, as opposed to some kid having set off a firecracker.

***A true lack of imagination on your part. If the officer heard over his
radio from the motor officer down the street, that someone was shooting,
he could have yelled at the occupants of the limo to get down, because
someone was shooting. Even if the second shot JFK as he was warning them,
at least Jackie would have realized JFK was shot, not just acting oddly
and would have pulled him down, which would have prevented him from being
shot in the head.
