The Assasination of JFK

            Throughout the centuries, many important individuals have been on the eye of many lethal assassins. President John Fitzgerald Kennedy was unfortunately a targeted man. On the afternoon of November 22, 1963, President Kennedy was assassinated as his motorcade passed through Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas. Even though it was 40 years ago, President Kennedy's assassination has been under a very heated debate. The impact that it had on America was devastating. Conspiracy and organized crime will haunt our nation until the end of time, but did they play a role in the assassination of John F. Kennedy? .
             Many claim to have ample verification that would prove that this assassination was a conspiracy. On the day of President Kennedy's death, three shots were fired at the motorcade, two hitting President Kennedy and one missing completely. The same bullet that struck Kennedy in the back exited his throat and went on to strike Governor Connally in the back, tore through his chest, hit his right wrist, and ended up embedded in his thigh. The 3.5 mm bullets were strong enough to pierce through metal if needed. However, the scheme of evading the public soon came into play. The House Select Committee on Assassinations made it indisputably clear that the alleged shooting feat would have been extremely difficult even for an accomplished marksman (Griffith). .
             Michael Griffith, a reporter as well as an eye witness, states;.
             "Three Master-rated riflemen took part in a make-shit experiment. They fired at stationary--yes, stationary--target boards from a 30-foot tower. They missed the head and neck area of the target boards 17 out of 18 times, even though two of them took more than 6 seconds to fire, and even though one of those two shooters took 8.25 seconds to fire. Additionally, many of their misses were far apart on the target board. In the CBS rifle test, which was somewhat more realistic than the WC's test, not one of the eleven expert riflemen was able to go 2 for 3 on his first attempt, and seven of them were unable to do so on any attempt.
