The acoustics evidence pertaining to the assassination of President Kennedy is one of the most hotly debated topics. For those of you who are unaware, the acoustics evidence refers to the alleged recording of the shots fired during the assassination on the Dictabelt recording of channel one of the DPD radio communications. Researcher Donald Byron Thomas posits that based on his analysis of the acoustics evidence; there were a total of five audible shots fired during the assassination. Although I don’t agree with Thomas’ conclusion, in part three of my review of his book Hear No Evil: Social Constructivism and the Forensic Evidence in the Kennedy Assassination, I discussed why I believe there is some validity to the acoustics evidence (click here to read through my discussion).
The reader may also be interested in viewing this discussion of the acoustics evidence; in which it is also posited that there were five shots fired during the assassination. As the acoustics evidence is the one thing which can prove beyond a doubt whether there were more than three shots fired (and more than one rifle used), the Dictabelt recording should be analysed using the most sophisticated acoustical analysis software and equipment in the World. The fact that the U.S. Government has never commissioned such an analysis in recent years just goes to show that they don’t give a shit about what the truth is behind the assassination.
