The "almost" stop!


Recommended Posts

Bobby Hargis (motorcycle policeman on the left rear fender of the Presidential limousine), November 23, 1963: “As the

President straightened back up, Mrs. Kennedy turned toward him, and that was when he got hit in the side of the head,

spinning it around. I was splattered with blood. Then I felt something hit me. It could have been concrete or something,

but I thought at first I might have been hit. Then I saw the limousine stop, and I parked my motorcycle at the side of the

road, got off and drew my gun. Then this Secret Service agent (in the President’s car) got his wits about him and they

took off.” [Daily News report]

Ochus Campbell (on the north side of Elm Street, in front of the Texas School Book Depository), November 24, 1963: “He

then observed the car bearing President Kennedy to slow down, a near stop, and a motorcycle policeman [sic] rushed

up.” [FBI report: CE1435: 22H845]

James Foster (Dallas Police Patrolman, on top of the triple overpass), March 25, 1964: “Immediately after President

Kennedy was struck with a second bullet, the car in which he was riding pulled to the curb, the motorcycle escorts

started maneuvering and scattering, a man which he recognized to be a Secret Service agent jumped on to the rear of the

President’s car and pushed Mrs. Kennedy down and then climbed into the car….” [FBI report: CD897]

Ruth Smith (watching from the old red courthouse), December 21, 1963: “The car seemed to slow or perhaps stop after

the first shot and then just after the third shot a Secret Service man from the second car ran to the rear of the President’s

car and threw himself into the rear seat.” [FBI report: CD206]

the first shot

and then just after the third shot a Secret Service man from the second car ran to the rear of the President’s

car and threw himself into the rear seat

Mr. HOLLAND - I observed it. It knocked him completely down on the floor. Over, just slumped completely over. That second---

Mr. LIEBELER - You say that it was the second shot that hit him in the head; is that right?

Mr. HUDSON - Yes; I do believe that - I know it was.

Mr. LIEBELER - You saw him hit in the head, there wasn't any question in your mind about that, was there?

Mr. HUDSON - No, sir.

Mr. LIEBELER - And after you saw him hit in the head, did you here another shot?

Mr. HUDSON - Yes, sir.

Mr. HUDSON - Yes; so right along about even with these steps, pretty close to even with this here, the last shot was fired - somewhere right along in there.

Mr. ALTGENS can vouch for the last shot, but I cannot tell you how many shots were in between. There was not another shot fired after the President was struck in the head. That was the last shot--that much I will say with a great degree of certainty.

Mr. ALTGENS - Well, I wouldn't want to say--I don't want to guess, because facts are so important on something like this. I am inclined to feel like that there were not as many as I have heard people say. I think it's of a smaller denomination, a smaller number, but I cannot--I can really only vouch for the two. Now, I know that there was at least one shot in between.

Mr. LIEBELER - At least one?

Mr. ALTGENS - I would say that--I know there was one in between. It is possible there might have been another one I don't really know, but two, I can really account for.

Mr. LIEBELER - And that's the first one and the last one?

Mr. ALTGENS - Yes, sir.

Now!

As soon as John Dolva completes his excellent work with the Z-film, one may possibly come to understand exactly how a vehicle which was physically and actually travelling at a slow rate of speed and which almost came to a complete stop, can thereafter be made to appear to travelling at almost 11 mph continously throughout the Z-film.
