Knoxville, Tennessee (JFKASSASSINATION) Today we continue our look at "Enemy of the Truth:  Myths, Forensics, & the Kennedy Assassination" by Sherry P. Fiester.


The book, published by JFK Lancer Productions & Publications, Inc. of Southlake, Texas,  includes a Foreward by Jim Marrs, & is available at &

Today we continue our look at Sherry Fiester's final chapter in "Enemy of the Truth" titled THE WITNESSES by focusing on Dallas Police Officer Bobby Hargis.*

*Bobby Hargis was part of the motorcycle escort for the motorcade.  He was riding behind the Presidential car near the left rear fender.

Mr. Hargis recounted his experience in a New York Times news article dated Sunday, November 24, 1963.  He said...

"We turned left onto Elm Street.  I was right along side the rear fender on the left side of the President's car, near Mrs. Kennedy, when I heard the first explosion.  I knew it was a shot.

As...Mrs. Kennedy turned toward (JFK)...he got hit in the side of his head, spinning it around.  I was splattered with blood.  Then I felt something hit me.  It could have been concrete...but I thought at first I might have been hit."

According to a Dallas Morning News story of 2003, Mr. Hargis had a recurring dream over the years since the assassination that he is chasing Lee Harvey Oswald but never quite catches him.

Sherry Fiester writes that she had the pleasure of attending a Lancer meeting for students at which Bobby Hargis was speaking.

Sherry describes Bobby as a...

"big guy...principled...exuding confidence and trust."

Sherry tells how she asked Bobby to describe "the blood spatter from JFK's fatal headshot."

He responded by saying the President's blood left the back of the head in "copious amounts."

The retired officer added...

"It was as if a bucket of blood was thrown from the back of his head; it spread out and hung in the air for a minute."

Sherry then says that after Officer Hargis talked to the students, a question and answer period was held.  During this time, a parent-chaparone rudely asked Mr. Hargis why he hadn't tried to do something to stop JFK from being killed.

I wouldn't have expected that kind of question from even one of the students.  It not only shows a lack of knowledge of the circumstances surrounding JFK's death, but it also demonstrates a total lack of respect and compassion for Bobby Hargis.

Sherry Fiester took matters in her own hands.  She walked to the front of the room, looked the audience in the eyes and said...

"Wearing a uniform doesn't make you able to stop a speeding bullet.  Neither Bobby Hargis nor anyone else in that motorcade could have stopped that bullet."

Bravo, Sherry, Bravo!!!!


  1. Hey, someone--on a blog the other day--mentioned one of the policemen to the right-rear of the presidential limo having gotten hit by brain matter and blood—in addition to Officer Hargis-- and referred to Ms. Fiester. I wonder if you have any info on this, please. A clear citation would be terrific. THANKS.

  2. This is a very good question and it is somewhat difficult to answer without going back and re-reading the entirety of Sherry's great book.

    I will try to give you what I can quickly find on what she has about the motorcycle officers riding to the rear of JFK's limo.

    First, of course, she gives the statement of Mr. Hargis....he heard 2 shots as thought they MIGHT have come for the RR overpass and B.J. Martin who was to the Left Rear and said...."I couldn't tell from which direction (of the shots)...."

    In her chapter on The Grassy Knoll Headshot, Ms. Feister talks about the Discovery Channel documentary which included an interview with H.B. McLain, a Dallas Motorcycle police officer who "proclaimed the blood splatter created in the reconstruction shooting was consistent with the blood splatter...observed within the limo at Parkland..."

    At the end of "Enemy of the Truth," Sherry includes about 2 pages of information in the chapter on "witnesses" to Bobby Hargis. She recounts her meeting with Mr. Hargis and his wife at a JFK Lancer event in which a question was asked about why Hargis hadn't done anything to save JFK's life. Sherry interceded his the officer's behalf saying that it would have been impossible for Bobby or anyone else to have saved JFK's life given the circumstances in Dealey Plaza.

    No other motorcycle officer is included in that chapter.

    As I say, it is difficult to find (if it is there) any reference to another m/c officer being hit by blood and brain tissue other than Bobby Hargis in Ms. Feister's book. I'm not saying it is NOT there, I just can't locate it. I do recall reading somewhere in the past that another officer was so hit, but can't recall the officer's name or the source.

    Perhaps another visitor to the blog would enlighten us on this issue.

    Again, thank you for the question.
