The so-called, “grassy knoll,” is a slight incline with some trees and a fence, just to the right of where Abraham Zapruder took his now infamous film. The first time I stood on the spot where Zapruder was and looked over my shoulder I could tell how ridiculous it was to believe that a shooter was behind the fence, as I previously did. Zapruder and others would have easily seen any shooter at this location, and even more would have seen him running away.
This is not a location were any professional killers would set up, with no hope of going unseen and the likelihood of being caught on film, not just identified by eye witnesses. But such is the power of JFK folklore, which can turn the irrational into the seemingly probable. All you need to do is say, “grassy knoll,” for people to envision a secret gunman, just as people use to say, “witch,” to turn an upstanding member of their community into a Devil Worshipper.
