Hear No Evil
Donald B. Thomas, Ph.D
In 2001, scientist Donald B. Thomas published an article in Science and Justice which re-ignited the debate on the "acoustics evidence" in the Kennedy assassination. "Study Backs Theory of ‘Grassy Knoll’: New Report Says Second Gunman Fired at Kennedy” wrote the Washington Post. Thomas refuted those who had claimed to debunk the work of the House Select Committee on Assassinations, whose acoustic scientists had found that a shot indeed did come from the "grassy knoll."
Now Thomas has taken his analysis and expanded it into a full-length book which reviews a much broader range of the science of the case, and in the process paints a revealing and unflattering portrait of many of the government's hand-picked scientists, who failed the public trust by failing to follow the evidence.
In this book, Thomas explains the acoustics evidence in detail, but goes far beyond that, placing it in the context of an analysis of all the major scientific evidence in the Kennedy assassination. Revering no sacred cows, he demolishes myths promulgated by both Warren Commission adherents and conspiracy advocates, and presents a novel and compelling re-interpretation of the “single bullet theory.”
Hear No Evil: Social Constructivism and the Forensic Evidence in the Kennedy Assassination will be published by the Mary Ferrell Foundation Press in early July.
