Post – 7/11/16

Points of Contention” will be part of every segment of the Encyclopedia to assist the reader to swiftly understand the differences of opinion.

Hulls / Expended Cartridge Cases

Per the Warren Report:

“On the 6th floor of the Depository Building, the Dallas police found 3 spent cartridges and a rifle.

“Deputy Sherrif Eugene Mooney found 3 expended cartridge cases on the floor near a window at the SE corner of the School Book Depository.

“Ten minutes later Deputy Sherrif Eugene Boone and Deputy Constable Seymour Weitzman found a bolt action rifle...

“Captain Fritz opened the bolt and ejected a live round (an unfired 6.5 millimeter caliber-jacketed military-type cartridge).”

“A nearly whole bullet was discovered on the stretcher used to carry Governor Connally at Parkland Hospital.”

Points of Contention:

  • In his book Six Seconds in Dallas, Josiah Thompson alleged the 3rd cartridge case was dented such that it could never have been fired in any rifle.

  • In his book Case Closed, Gerald Posner alleged that the House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) proved the dented shell could have been dented this badly when it was ejected and therefore it could have been used to fire a bullet on the day of the assassination.
