JFK ASSASSINATION ARGUMENTS
(PART 478)


JOHN CANAL SAID:

How have you determined that the red spot is in the cowlick area of JFK's scalp?


DAVID VON PEIN SAID:

By looking at the autopsy photo that I've posted a thousand times, John. That's how.

And it couldn't BE more obvious that the area of Kennedy's SCALP known as "the cowlick" is at the exact same place where the "red spot" (i.e., the bullet hole) is also located.



For Pete sake, what was the purpose of taking that photograph AT ALL if it wasn't to document the location of the ENTRY WOUND on the back of John Kennedy's head/scalp?

In addition, I ask this:

Why would the doctors have had a desire to document the TRUE location of the entry wound on the back of JFK's head by STRETCHING his scalp in such an extreme manner (per John Canal's theory) that the doctors and photographer John Stringer certainly must have KNOWN on 11/22/63 that such a photograph would NOT be depicting the TRUE and ACCURATE location of the entry wound?

Were the autopsy doctors deliberately TRYING to hide the true location of the entry hole by "stretching" the scalp in absurd ways before having a picture taken of the wound (i.e., a picture that was taken for the specific reason of showing WHERE on Kennedy's head the entry wound was located)?

Come now, John....let's be reasonable about this.


JOHN CANAL SAID:

Canal is fully and nervously aware of DVP's wonderous abilities to tell things from photos...that most can't see.


DAVID VON PEIN SAID:

Oh, for Pete sake, John....even the HSCA identified the red spot as being in THE COWLICK. Therefore, the HSCA obviously saw the light and used some common sense when they determined that the red spot IS IN THE COWLICK AREA OF JOHN F. KENNEDY'S SCALP.

Maybe John C. should listen to Michael Baden at the beginning of the following taped interview with Dr. Finck in March of 1978:




Quoting Baden from that taped interview:

"In reading your autopsy report, you specifically say that the entrance perforation that you're looking at is 15 by 6 millimeters, which is the precise measurement of that area IN THE COWLICK [DVP's emphasis] when we measure it out. And that area...is in the central portion of the picture, as if that's what's being looked at by the camera." -- DR. MICHAEL BADEN; 03/12/78


JOHN CANAL SAID:

He [DVP] told us he could tell from the scans of the lateral x-ray that the fractures were "complete" [all the way through the bone creating fragments].


DAVID VON PEIN SAID:

A "complete fracture line" does not have to result in "fragments" coming loose from JFK's skull. Why do you think that, John?

You need some "complete fracture lines" that MEET UP with other "complete fracture lines" in the OCCIPITAL area of JFK's head....and you don't have that in the lateral X-ray. Period. Not even close to it, in fact.





Are you going to sit there and try to convince me that due to the fact that the above autopsy X-rays are not the National Archives "originals", this means that ALL of the OTHER "complete fracture lines" that you say are REALLY present in the occipital area of JFK's skull in the "original" first-generation lateral X-ray are (incredibly) completely invisible to the naked eye in the above copies of that X-ray?

Come now, John, let's be reasonable about this. And we're talking about "complete" fractures too, keep in mind....which would equal VERY DARK lines on the X-ray. How could so many OTHER "complete fracture lines" become invisible--even in the "copies" of the X-ray linked above?


JOHN CANAL SAID:

In the about eight years that I've been studying these issues to include, of course, the BOH photos, no one, yes, not one single person--until you did yesterday--has ever had the gall to say that from the photo they could tell that the red spot was in the cowlick area of JFK's scalp....so, I guess I was in a state of shock at that revelation...and it didn't sink in what you were proposing.


DAVID VON PEIN SAID:

You must be kidding, John! You HAVE to be kidding here!

Michael Baden and the HSCA in 1978 determined that the red spot was located in the cowlick.

Via the above words spoken by Dr. Baden (the ones I printed out verbatim above), it couldn't be more obvious that Baden believes that the red spot is, indeed, located in the cowlick of JFK's scalp -- because he's referring to (and undoubtedly also looking at!) the BOH autopsy photo when he's questioning Dr. Finck in that taped interview.

Plus: author Vincent Bugliosi, in his book "Reclaiming History", undoubtedly believes that the autopsy photo in question is depicting the red spot as being in the location on JFK's head known as "the cowlick". How can there be ANY doubt at all as to VB's beliefs in this regard?

You're in an "EOP" dream world, John.


JOHN CANAL SAID:

Thankfully, my friend wasn't shocked (by anything you say), so he was able to explain to me what your point was.


DAVID VON PEIN SAID:

Which is just plain silly...because my previous posts on this matter couldn't possibly have been any clearer as to "what [my] point was".


ADDENDUM FROM ANOTHER POST:

JOHN CANAL SAID THIS ON APRIL 3, 2009, (EVEN THOUGH, FOR SOME REASON, HE THINKS IT WAS DVP WHO SAID IT):

The red spot in the scalp ***IS*** over the cowlick part of JFK's skull in the photo.


JOHN CANAL THEN SAID:

Yes, you're correct on that...but it's over the cowlick part of his head because the scalp was stretched to put it there.


DAVID VON PEIN SAID:

You're answering yourself, John. I didn't make that first statement...you did.

But it is a correct statement too, IMO, although we cannot actually see any of the underlying skull bone in the photo, of course.

But this discussion about the entry wound in JFK's head is more about the SCALP of JFK, instead of the underlying SKULL/BONE.

And in order for John Canal's theory to hold water, the cowlick of JFK must certainly be located about 4 to 8 inches (when taking into account John's "stretch" theory) NORTH of the actual bullet hole in President Kennedy's SCALP.

Simple Question:

Is John Kennedy's "cowlick" located 4 to 8 INCHES above the red spot (i.e., the thing even YOU admit IS the "bullet hole") in the photo below, John? (If your answer is "yes", I suggest you trade in your current eyeballs for ones that work a little better):
