A new documentary about the JFK assassination claims that the president was shot twice by two different shooters.
Conspiracy theorists have long believed that there was a second shooter on November 22, 1963, but the official story claims that John F. Kennedy was killed by a lone gunman named Lee Harvey Oswald. The new documentary, called The Smoking Gun, claims that Kennedy was also shot by Secret Service agent George Hickey.
The government has reportedly knew about Hickey’s accidental discharge but decided to cover it up in order to save the reputation of the secret service.The Daily Mail reports that Hickey was one of the Secret Service agents riding behind Kennedy on the day of his assassination. The documentary claims that Hickey accidentally fired his gun and hit the president.
Do you think there is any truth to the new JFK Assassination documentary? Was the president killed by Secret Service agent George Hickey?
The new documentary is primarily based on the investigative work of Australian police officer Colin McLaren.
McLaren claims that Hickey and the rest of the agency were out partying the night before they assassination. McLaren also says that Hickey was not properly trained on the AR-15.
“It was his first time in the follow car, his first time holding the assault weapon he was using.”
McLaren believes that Hickey accidentally pulled the trigger when his car came to an abrupt stop after Lee Harvey Oswald opened fire on the president. McLaren, as well as author Bonar Menninger, believe that the ballistic profiles show that two different types of bullets hit JFK. One of the bullets, 6.5mm Mannlicher-Carcano, came from Lee Harvey Oswalt. The other alleged bullet hole was caused by an AR-15.
Hickey passed away a few years ago and obviously can’t comment on Mclaren’s theory. His original statement from 1963, however, is still available.
“At the end of the last report I reached to the bottom of the car and picked up the AR 15 rifle, cocked and loaded it, and turned to the rear. At this point the cars were passing under the over-pass and as a result we had left the scene of the shooting. I kept the AR 15 rifle ready as we proceeded at a high rate of speed to the hospital.”
JFK: The Smoking Gun will air on the Reelz Channel on November 3. Do you think there were two shooters during the JFK assassination? Did George Hickey accidentally fire his gun?
