It sure as hell does. It gives us the EXACT lateral (pitch) angle of trajectory. We just need to determine where JFK was on Elm relative to the SN when the MB struck him.

It sure as hell does not. On its own, it tells us nothing at all about the lateral angle of trajectory.

Are you serial? Admit it, you don't know what you're talking about, do you?

Jack,  why don't you, as our resident physicist/photogammatrist, explain to the rest of us here how the entry wound being 2 inches to the right of the spine gives the EXACT lateral (pitch) angle of trajectory? Go ahead and dazzle us.

Humes says the back wound was 2" right of the spine.  According to SBT, this bullet then exited midline in the neck.  That's 2" displacement for about 6" forward.  By the time it moves 24" more, to the plane of Connally's back, it should have displaced 8" to the left of JFK's neck.  In my opinion, there is no way this could hit Connally on the right side.

That seems like an intelligent and rational conclusion......

That is false.

Going Ballistic

Pretty sure a bullet starts to drop the moment it exits the barrel. It's called gravity.. plus air density, temperature, and wind have an effect on the flight of the bullet.

Seems the guy on the whoopee cushion is, ironically, a fine representation of yet another CTer lame attempt to prove this, that, and the other.

At least he makes an attempt to prove something, much unlike yourself, who only offers opinions.
