Can I ask you one thing?
You write after many of the videos how the crowd seems to run toward the grassy knoll. Is it your belief a shot, (and if so,which shot?) came from that area? I mean the implications that the crowd would run toward the shooter is not something I can easily wrap my head around. But then again I wasn't alive when JFK was, and I didn't know how beloved he was to the people of this country. But even so I would think that the majority of the crowd would run for a safe place to hide, a place they think will shield them from the shots being fired. So in my mind, that means that no one thought that the shooter/s were in /around the grassy knoll. Again though it was a different time, and a different President. Perhaps people would have chased after a gunman.
(Ignore the arrow, I added it for another thread and this is the only pic I have of the people running to the knoll)
Has anyone tried that?
I wondered what your/everyone's view was on this.
I have heard about the possibility of a shot from the storm drain for many years and even met the daughter of a woman who said she and friends witnessed someone firing from the drain opening. But the mother refused to be interviewed and I have been unable to substantiate this story. I have always hesitated to discuss the storm drain because many years ago one of the earliest and best researchers, Penn Jones Jr., editor of the Midlothian Mirror, was ridiculed incessantly. Debunkers said he was claiming that Kennedy was shot "from a sewer." I have myself stood down in the storm drain which is located a mere six feet from the point of Kennedy’s fatal head shot. I could comfortably stand in this drain (I’m not too tall being 5’7”) and it would have been an easy pistol shot to a person sitting upright in an open convertible. Some witnesses said that one of the shots sounded hollow, had a ringing sound to it. And it could have been possible to leave the storm drain via a large drain pipe which connected to an opening behind the wooden picket fence on the notorious Grassy Knoll. But did a shot come from this drain? At the moment, there is not enough evidence to state yes, but it remains an interesting premise.
An interesting sidebar to this speculation is the fact that in the 1980s a section running vertically down the Grassy knoll collapsed. The Dallas Street Dept. found that someone had dug up a section of this drain pipe and cut away a piece about 2 feet X 4 feet and replaced the cut section. But instead of welding the section back, whoever did this simply replaced the section on the pipe and over time it gave way causing a collapse at that point. There was some speculation that perhaps an assassin had stashed his weapon in the drain pipe and was retrieved surreptitiously at a later date. This drain was connected to the storm drain at the foot of the Grassy Knoll.
