JFK blown away

Page history last edited by JFK 12 years ago

     John F Kennedy or JFK died on November 22 1963 at 1:00 pm. He died 30 mins after being shot in the head and neck and was rushed to a nearby hospital without regaining conciousness . 3 shots were fired but only two hit JFK the final bullet hit Governor  Connally   in the hand, back, ribs, and his left leg. There is another theory stating that a so called magic bullet had gone strait through both the president and governor. apparently it hit JFK in the right spot and happened to ricochet into the governor in all of those spots and come out with no harm to the bullet itself. [1] This theory has almost been entirely ruled out because how could a single bullet go through the president and the governer and come out intact from a distance of 100 yards. This theory is highly unlikely. There are also some flaws with the multi-shot theory. First off there is the point that a single shooter could not fire 3 shots in a few seconds with a bolt action rifle which is not a auto-matic gun at that distance and at a moving target. There is also the thought that there were more then one shooters but if that was true there would of had to be evedence of some sort. also we only caught one man Harvey Oswald but he was shot before trial. Jfk's death was always a tricky subject since it still isnt known who the murderer was.

     His death was huge. the country moaned as one of the most influential presidents was killed so ubruptly. They were counting on change and for him to fix the problems of our country. He had such great potential only for him to die so suddenly. Jfk was a great presedent and his death is still unknown.

Poor J.F.K. Three shots have got to hurt and then the magic bullet that hit J.F.K and then the governor. I hope they can get some more evidence to find the killer or killers.

Its such a shame that a good president was killed and no one in America could find enough evidence to catch the killer. Great article, however.What evidence was there that Harvey Oswald may have shot him?

He was a really good president and leader, and it was very sad that he was assassinated. Good job on the article.

I thought that JFK's death would have a big influence on America, and it seems like it did. JFK had much potemtial and was very popular so the shock would've been unanymous. I'm sure that as president he had a big influence on the country and that his death must've been a severe upset to many Americans. Do you know why he was shot or do you know of nay therioes of why? I heard it was because of the fact that he was very into civil rights and Martin Luther King Jr. Am I right? Also, who was president after him and what did they do instead? Did they have similar goals to JFK?

Those were the main three ideas about how he died and he was shot because of his involvement in the civil rights.

JFk's death obviously was painful to our country because he had so much capability to help the U.S. I found it interesting how some people think there was a magic bullet which went through JFK and the Governor. I thought you did a very good job with pointing out some of the possible theorys there were and if they are still possible or not. Is there still no evidence found that would lead to JFK's killer/killers?

they found evidence of Harvey Oswald and nobody else. He claimed that he was being framed and that he would prove himself at court. Unfortunately he was shot before he was able to.

JFK's assassination was a big deal and a terrible loss to our country, seeing what a great leader he was. I think you described how he could've been killed and who murdered him very well. I would have liked to know why he was killed though.

This was a very informative article. I never knew that one of the theories is that one of the bullets when though the president and hit the governor. Good work.
