Title: If a bullet passed straight through Connally, why not Kennedy?
Post by: John Mytton on September 23, 2018, 11:05:31 PM
We keep seeing CTs speculate that Kennedy's back bullet and the throat bullet must still be inside Kennedy but Connally's bullet ripped right through his torso and smashed ribs along the way, just as you'd expect from an assassination attempt.

Can any CTs explain why Kennedy's bullets broke no bones, had less distance to travel through flesh than Connally's back bullet but still stayed in JFK's body? Did physics take a holiday on the 22nd?

If you think so, then good for you.

Btw why didn't the bullets pass right through Kennedy's neck who had not one broken bone but a single bullet crashed right through Connally's torso and smashed bones?

Because it didn't pass through his neck, dufus.

Maybe when you provide evidence that supports that the Autopsy Report cannot be trusted then perhaps the LNers will listen.

Humes (the wound mover) is the one who said the back wound was a shallow wound . The only wound that transversed the body of JFK was the bullet that hit him in the right temple and blew out the back of his head .

Specify your witnesses along with a brief quote or summation for each.

By "shoulder", I take it to mean a location four inches or further from the midline in the shoulder mass.

Those who refuse to explain where the bullet went after it hit President Kennedy's upper-back and came out his neck beneath the adam's apple are "implying" the missile stayed inside his body.
Since it did not hit bone or anything else that was capable of applying a lateral force of sufficient magnitude to signficantly change the bullet's direction, it must hhave continued in a straight line. The question is: what was on that line?

 The correct answer to that question depends on when the bullet struck JFK. If it struck at z223 or so it could not have struck JBC in the right armpit.  Even if the tumbling bullet was able to somehow miss striking JFK's hands, the trajectory goes too far to the left side of JBC. If it struck after z191 and before z202, as the evidence strongly indicates, other possibilities arise.

Tell us how JFK would be able raise his hands up fast enough to intercept a supersonic bullet travelling back-to-front through his neck.

Certainly the only logical argument put forward by the WC was to have a magic bullet introduced to make 7 wounds in total.  This bullet needed to be found and came to be known as CE399 and introduced to support a lone gunman scenario.  It appears to be a FMJ (full metal jacket) that tumbled out of the abdomen and lost a few grains in JC's leg! His muscular leg rejected the rest onto the gurney where it was found later, although a few grains did somehow leave the bullet during its tumble and penetrated the leg - narrowly missing the femoral artery!
The car was never examined as a crime scene and a thorough examination top to bottom was never undertaken by photograph.   The SS moved it away, just like they did JFK's body very quickly.  I believe the neck wound (covered up conveniently by a tracheostomy) was in fact an entrance wound.   The bullet exited out the back side and into the car, possibly upholstery behind his back.  There were only 3 shots claimed to have occurred and the first one was a wild shot that hit somewhere on the road - no pictures of damage of it had been seen - only reports!  No one was sure if he missed the car by 2 inches or by 20 feet!

He did not have to raise his hands at all. His hands were already in front of his chest. Look at where his hands are when he emerges from behind the sign (frame z224). Then look at the path from his neck tie knot where the bullet emerged to JBC's right armpit. How does it miss his hands or forearms?

The right hand appears to me to be over the car-rail in Z224, after-which it redirects towards the chin and body mid-line. Even if the raised right hand were at the President's mid-line in Z224, the trajectory of SBT shot fired from the SN would pass beneath the right hand.

If the SBT is true, and the experiments of Dr. Lattimer are valid, the coat movement at z224 indicates the bullet hit JFK and Connally at z222, one tenth of a second before.

Let?s look at frames z222 through z225:

z222:
(https://www.assassinationresearch.com/zfilm/z222.jpg)

z223:
(https://www.assassinationresearch.com/zfilm/z223.jpg)

z224:
(https://www.assassinationresearch.com/zfilm/z224.jpg)

z225:
(https://www.assassinationresearch.com/zfilm/z225.jpg)

In z222, the most critical frame, it is impossible to see where either hand is.

In z223, it is impossible to see where the right hand is, but the left hand is clearly too low, at about the level of Connally?s armpit wound.

In z224, we see JFK?s right hand, about lines up with the top of the leather seats.

In z225, JFK?s right hand has dropped a couple of inches.

Only in z225, is either hand, the right hand, at about the right level to intercept the bullet. And even this hand must be to far to his right. Try it yourself. Rest your right elbow on a chair so the elbow is a few inches lower than the shoulder, as JFK was positioned. Wave to the crowds on the left, lower your hand, then raiser to wave to the crowds on the right. At no point should even the fingers of your right hand get directly in front of your throat. Your fingers should not be quite long enough to reach there.

Also, if we assume what was happening, it appears JFK was waving to the crowds while behind the sign. As he was emerging from behind the sign, we can see he was done waving for the moment and was lowering his right hand. This is why is hand is lower in z225 than z224. If we extrapolate to z222, his right hand must have been much further higher. Way to high.

No competent umpire would call that a strike. That was a ball, too low and too outside the reach of his hand.

But really, I have only one question for you Andrew.

The best way to determine the truth is with Orthographic or Multiview drawings. Ideally two drawings, at z222, one showing a view from above and the other a view from the side. An example of an orthographic drawing is shown below.

(https://ict2011dnt.files.wordpress.com/2011/04/first-17.jpg)

With orthographic drawings from both sides, one can compare, for example, the angle the bullet makes with the limousine, as seen from the top view, with maps of Dealey Plaza.

The following webpage shows a couple of orthographic drawings of the SBT.

http://www.wikiwand.com/en/Single-bullet_theory

About halfway down the page is two Single Bullet Theory diagrams shown. The anti-SBT is shown about the Pro-SBT drawing. The Pro-SBT diagram properly shows JFK sitting well outboard of Connally, as we can tell from the Dave Powers film.

For some reason, CTers produce drawings that are obviously wildly off. They seem designed to fool people who don?t know the angles of Dealey Plaza, and who don?t check. For people that don?t check the angles they seem very convincing. A bullet path from the sniper?s nest seems to miss Connally by a lot. But more accurate drawings seem to indicate the bullet should hit near Connally?s armpit, both as seen from the top view and the side view.

Question:

Why don?t those who believe the SBT is false show accurate Orthographic drawings, and use these drawings to convince newcomers that the SBT is false.


In my experience, CTers are most reluctant to provide a link on the internet to such a diagram. They just provide excuses as to why they don?t need to do this. If the SBT was really false, such accurate orthographic diagrams would be power tools to show it is false.

But that was not the point I was making. I was making the point that the trajectory still doesn't work. "Even if the tumbling bullet was able to somehow miss striking JFK's hands..", the trajectory to JBC's right armpit is left to right whereas the bullet path is right to left.

I have posted many times various projections from a 3D model that is a 1:1 scale model of the limo and Dealey Plaza.  I have also shown in various photos using sight lines and mapping those sightlines onto a scale model of the limo, that JBC is not inboard of JFK enough to put his right ampit to the left of JFK's neck exit wound, let alone the 4-5 inches required. JBC is in the middle of his seat.  That fact can be seen not only in the zfilm but also in photos on Houston as shown in this simple sightline analysis (http://www.dufourlaw.com/JFK/first_shot_trajectory_13deg.pdf)

I agree that he is reacting to his neck wound in z224. He has already been hit in the back/neck. The question is: when did it happen?  The SBT is predicated on a physical reaction of his face arms and hands within 100 ms of being wounded.  All I am saying is that his reaction is also consistent with being hit at z195 or so and a more gradual reaction as he realizes something is wrong and which suddenly becomes acute as he tries to breathe (z226 and after). Since a human normally takes about 12-20 breaths per minute, it is understandable why there might be a second or more after the bullet strikes before JFK tries to take his next breath.

There is abundant proof that a bullet entered his back and exited his throat. First of all, there was a hole in his throat that was observed by doctors in Parkland.  Second, there were slits in his shirt in the doubled button area under the tie knot and there was a nick on the underside left side of his tie knot.  There is no conceivable way anything but a bullet could have made that hole in his throat. For example, we can see in the zfilm that he was not stabbed with a tiny round pole.  If the hole in his throat was made by a bullet these holes were necessarily made by a bullet either entering or exiting.  The characteristics of the threads on these holes indicated that the holes in the shirt were made by an exiting bullet.  Since human necks are not known to spontaneously produce and expel bullets, this means that the bullet had entered JFK's neck from behind.

You don't have any more basis than anyone else for declaring what an "accurate orthographic drawing" is.  They all involve guesswork and assumptions.  It's not like the Powers film was taken on Elm street or you have an actual overhead view of the assassination.

And the words "supporting evidence" are totally ignored. Supposition and conjecture is all we get. It happened the way the WC said. Trust me.

Nope.

But that was not the point I was making. I was making the point that the trajectory still doesn't work.

Yes, we don?t know exactly where the hand was in z222. Which means we can?t use the hand position to rule out the SBT.
However, a higher hand position at z222 is a more likely position than the z224 position. It is unlikely that JFK was waving at the crowd. Lowered his hand down to the z224 position, and held it there. And then resumed lowing it at z225. More likely, he was lowing his hand all during the z220-z225 sequence. Just like he did so many other times during that motorcade.
In any case, no matter what level his hand was at z222, the hand should be too far outboard, too far to his right, to be directly in front of his throat.  I?ve tried simulated casual waves and my fingers come up a couple in inches short of being in front of the throat.

I have posted many times various projections from a 3D model that is a 1:1 scale model of the limo and Dealey Plaza.  I have also shown in various photos using sight lines and mapping those sightlines onto a scale model of the limo, that JBC is not inboard of JFK enough to put his right ampit to the left of JFK's neck exit wound, let alone the 4-5 inches required. JBC is in the middle of his seat.  That fact can be seen not only in the zfilm but also in photos on Houston as shown in this simple sightline analysis (http://www.dufourlaw.com/JFK/first_shot_trajectory_13deg.pdf)
You have a horizontal angle of 13 degrees. My measurements from maps indicated that at z222, the angle should be 8.5 degrees. This would make a difference of 2.3 inches, horizontally.
Also, you have JFK too far inboard. Your diagram shows his right elbow barely reaching the side of the car. From the picture you provide, his elbow extends a few inches beyond. This makes more sense, because if his elbow barely reached the side of the car, it would often be slipping off the side of the car while he was resting it during that last 45 minutes.

Yes, we don?t know exactly where the hand was in z222. Which means we can?t use the hand position to rule out the SBT.
However, a higher hand position at z222 is a more likely position than the z224 position. It is unlikely that JFK was waving at the crowd. Lowered his hand down to the z224 position, and held it there. And then resumed lowing it at z225. More likely, he was lowing his hand all during the z220-z225 sequence. Just like he did so many other times during that motorcade.

I don't know how you can say the right hand would be too far to the right in z222 when we cannot see it.  It seems to me that the arm and hand is between the throat exit wound location and JBC's right armpit in z224 because the right armpit is right of JFK's midline.

I have set the angle at 13 degrees because that is what it is at z195. It is actually a bit more than 13 deg. But that is not the point. The point is that JBC is in the middle of his seat and his right armpit is right of JFK's midline. Unless you can show that JFK is dramatically farther right in z222 than he is in z186 or on Houston or JBC is much farther left in z222 than in earlier frames, the trajectory from JFK's throat exit wound goes well to the left of JBC's spine.

Most people are following the rabbit trail just fine.  You have to believe what the WC reported to you as facts.  They manage to get Malcom Perry (physician who worked on JFK at PH) to change his mind about what he reported the day the assassination took place.    He finally conceded that the bullet was a FMJ because the WC said so!

http://www.wikiwand.com/en/Malcolm_Perry_(physician) (http://www.wikiwand.com/en/Malcolm_Perry_(physician))
From this report:
"Perry stated three times at a press conference later that day that Kennedy's neck wound appeared to be an entrance wound.[citation needed] Although his statement appeared to be definitive, he had not intended it to be.[3] When interviewed by the Warren Commission, Perry said that he then believed that a "full jacketed bullet without deformation passing through the skin would leave a similar wound for an exit and entrance wound and with the facts which you have made available and with these assumptions, I believe that it was an exit wound."

On the presumption (and their assumptions!) made by the WC, he changed his initial statements he made.  The magic bullet story.   Again, when did the bullet start tumbling and why just a few grains missing from the rear?   He was never questioned about wound size or location on JFK's back and why he drew this conclusion at a press conference on the first day.  He is implying rear and front wound similar in size and he may have been mistaken after listening to the WC!     There must have been something on that first day that tipped him off that it was a frontal shot!   Was this the first gun shot wound he ever looked at that he concluded so wrongly on that first day?    Clearly, it looks like coercion on the part of the WC to retract what he initially said and say what they wanted to hear instead!

Clearly, you have to look at what data has been collected.  This data tells you what happened - ie. Perry's original press release!  Then, from that you determine how something happened.  If you circumvent this by already interjecting the bullet from behind theory, you have already forced a solution to pop out and it is a cover up.   Most of what we saw by the WC was like that.

On aside note,  that same thing occurred at the 9/11 commission report - another internally controlled report.   That time a President wasn't removed from office but the Patriot Act and Homeland Security came as a direct result  of it.  The nation's people where terrified by Anthrax scares and by elevated terrorist threat daily reports (yellow, red, orange etc.) and surrendered their freedoms to the government to do as they please with them.  Again, another sad day in history!

This is the point. The Warren Commission had the SBT occurring during z210-z225. The HSCA had it much earlier, around z195. But an earlier SBT was rejected by the LN community.
For the last 25+ years, the LN community accepts the SBT occurring during z221-z224. No LNer pushes for a SBT at z195.

I have modified your drawing, changing it from a z195 13 degrees angle to a z222 8.5 degree angle:

I used MS Paint which has limitations. And I am not a graphic artist. But this one change makes it line up pretty close.

Which shows why, after over fifty years, CTers do not use an accurate orthographic diagrams, showing the situation at z221-z224, to demonstrate why the SBT is impossible. Instead they prefer to use words.

I know the hand is too far to the right because when I sit in a chair, rest my right elbow on a chair several inches below my shoulder, and practice waving my hand and then bringing it down to rest, my forearm, my hand, even my fingers, never get in front of where the knot of my tie would be if I was wearing a tie.
Get in the position you see JFK in this image. Then, keeping the elbow resting where it is, like the top of a table or chair, rotate you forearm to wave.

Does your fingers ever get in front of the knot in your tie?

If not, we can reasonable be certain that his fingers could not have been hit by the bullet.

Joe, in your above diagram, where do you believe the bullet which went through John Connolly, exits his body?

Wrong. I do, at least a modified version of the SBT that passed through JFK's neck and struck JBC - just not in the back.

If you are doing it at z221-224 you have to show their positions as shown in those frames. For JFK you need to use z225. You have JBC turned farther right than the sightline to Zapruder. That was his position around z193, but not z221-4.  z221-4 shows him practically turned forward to the front. You also have to put JFK farther left than you show him because his right elbow is no longer on the car. He has moved left.  Even in z193 his arm extends out to the right from his shoulder so his rib cage could not be pressed right against the side. In z225 he is farther to the left than that. You have him still as far to the right as anyone could be in that seat.

Even with the position of JBC that you have, the bullet passes awfully close to JBC's spine. You have it going through JBC's chest. It did not penetrate even the right lug. Rather it went along and then through the right 5th rib,  and around the right lung driving bone shards into the lower lobe of the right lung.

If the second shot that stuck JBC occurred later as the 40+ witnesses to the 1.......2....3 shot pattern said, the angle of the bullet path from the SN to the direction of the car was almost 0. At that point the path through JBC is much easier to explain.

The diagram I posted was just a modification of Andrew Mason?s diagram except:
** I had to redraw from scratch a crude drawing on JFK and Connally?s torsos using MS Paint.
** Using the proper angle for z222, not z195.
It is just meant to show that a bullet at z222 through JFK should strike Connally somewhere.

A better drawing is found about a third of the way down:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Single-bullet_theory
seen here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Single-bullet_theory#/media/File:Sbt2.jpg

Even this drawing I have a couple of quibbles with:
1.   The horizontal angle is 12 degrees. I think it should be more like 8.5 degrees.
2.   Connally should not be quite so far inboard as this diagram shows.
3.   It should show the bullet curving as it travels through Connally and not maintain a perfectly straight line all the way to his thigh.
Ballistic tests show that a yawing WCC/MC bullet (and bullets in general) do not maintain a straight line. Clearly the bullet must have curved downward as it travelled through Connally?s chest. And likely curved to the left or right some, although it?s impossible to tell which because we cannot see the exact position of Connally?s right hand and right leg at z222.
I would also like to see these sorts of drawings always appear in pairs, one a top view and the other a view from the side.

Now those are what I call square shoulders
Still more accurate than what these CT goofballs make up, though
