Steve Thompson's Zapruder slow-mo.... amazing!
« on: July 22, 2018, 05:51:20 PM »
Without any doubt, Steve Thompson's work on the Zapruder film is the very best available (the best I've seen)!

I don't understand how anyone could watch this and not easily see that the fatal shot came from the front, and threw Kennedy's head toward the back of the car. The thrust of the car has nothing to do with this at all. This is pure physics. Any other conclusion is mis-informed and very likely an effort to be obscurant.

This is conclusive evidence of a conspiracy, IMO...
Thanks for the good work Steve!!

At first, around the 22, 23 second, his head does go forward. I guess, we will all see what we want to see.

Thanks for posting.

Greer said he hit the brakes, thinking there was a flat tire...

If you are not from Dallas or are not familiar with the Dealey Plaza area layout...you will not notice the incredible distortion of the film from the beginning.
The film shows buildings that are actually blocks away from the actual scene.
Observe the first frames where just the motorcycle cops are shown... you will see a building that says --PURSE CO---
That is just not right. It wasn't there. The Records building should be there but it is not there in the film..The next building to the right of Records is the County Jail..Across from the jail [Main St] is the Old Dallas Courthouse. All of those buildings are still there.  Across from the Old Courthouse [Commerce St] is or was at the time... framework of the new courthouse ..which of course is complete now. I've seen this stuff many times before...I simply thought it was just an anomaly of some sort :o


   This is Z-25 the clearest frame I could find at the beginning of the clip @ the corner of Houston and Elm......where are those buildings?




Notice the red light traffic signal?...Z-51 I can't figure out what intersection that could be at! Elm St was of course, one way going west.

Also....
The people at the bottom of the frames [north side of Elm]....look like they are waiting for a bus rather than being parade observers who would at least wave at a visiting President :(
They maintain this [almost casual disinterest] until they are out of sight @ Z-200 or so ----

Z-114......




Z-183 JFK is waving...why are they not waving back?

Jerry, are you suggesting that this was somehow staged?

I am just saying that there is something really odd with that film.
 It is probably a case of a crappy camera and everything is distorted.
 I found a clear picture of the film site ....
Elm was blocked off -

That's a keen observation @Jerry Freeman :

You know,  in the past, I went and looked for as many JFK motorcades as I could find... there are many, so maybe some would say the crowd waves... I know from the JFK library, there is the photo from Nashville. Are they waving? It looks like they are mainly clapping.



Click on image to enlarge.

And as I have said earlier, there are a number of photos one can look at of other motorcades, LA, San Francisco, Milwaukee and so on.

When I see that picture of JFK in Nashville, the father of Al Gore, then governor of the state is in the car too,  I can't get over how wide out in the open JFK is. While, at youtube, if you hunt down his appearance in LA, the security is really high, SS flanking the car as it trolls along at a very low speed.

The above image seems to show "clapping" is more common than "waving".

The guys in suits and shades to me, look like Secret Service. They could all be bystanders for all I know.

I've also found pictures of motorcades with:

Adlai Stevenson,

Ike with Khruschev, Ike by himself I believe, maybe one with Truman as well.

VP Richard Nixon.

It sure seems ill advised for the head of the state to be travelling around in the open.

Check JFK's motorcades for his Berlin visit. There too are some interesting photos and I opine, much better security. Somewhere in the Far East too, I believe.

As they say, hindsight is 20/20 but honestly, at the height of the cold war? And besides that, all of the civil rights unrest as well not just JFK but a few of these people were too wide open for comfort. That's all I'll say.

That up in Nashville per the prior post, that was probably 4 dignitaries in one car, even if one had no more than a knife, it looks like one could have inflicted some damage.
