  • It was rotten luck, he was just doing his job.

Yes on that angle the crack-impact is close to the mirror.
Some on this forum suggest that the white blob "on" the lab coat is a hole -- nope.
The crack was made by the remnant slug of Hickey shot-1, ie after exiting JFK's head.[edit 17april2022][It wasnt shot-1, it was the last shot of Hickey's auto burst][Hickey & the AR15 were falling forward not backward]
The dent was made by Hickey shot-2. [edit 17april2022][It wasnt shot-2, it was the second-last shot of Hickey's auto burst]
Hickey fired an accidental possibly slamfire auto burst of at least 4, probably 5, & possibly 6 shots.

Some on this forum say that there is a dent in the back of the mirror. Praps the hollow point slug that disintegrated on the chrome trim sent a fragment of lead back onto the steel visor rod from which it ricocheted forward onto the glass & then back to the back of the mirror. I think that the fragment could not go from the chrome trim to the back of the mirror directly, it had to make use of the steel rod & the glass. I doubt that the dent on the back of the mirror was caused by a fragment from the remnant that caused the cracks in the glass, the windshield slopes away at say 45 deg. No, my bet is that the damage to the mirror was due to Hickey shot-2 shot-5 (ie the second-last shot of his auto burst of say 6 shots), the slug that dented the chrome trim.

Just to make myself very clear, i do not believe that Hickey ever fired his AR-15 anytime during the motorcade.

I read The Smoking Gun a month ago. I got Mortal Error today & will read it over the next few days.
I have posted on my thread recently (re was Hickey's AR15 in burst mode) & will again in the next few days debunking the debunking of Hickey's shot(s) plus some new info that i have come up with.
Robin, have u seen a better quality copy of McIntire-2? 
Might u be able to obtain the superior 2019 copies of the Bronson footage frames? (at present your gallery has the 2017 frames).
Is there any chance of getting more full frames of the Bell footage?  This refers to the sequence where the JFK limo is going under the triple underpass.
