Conspiracy theorists are wrong and often cite a profile view photo as
evidence; the same bullet, photographed from the back, shows
substantial damage.

Also, the bullet's velocity slowed down, as it first passed through
Kennedy WITHOUT striking bone, GLANCED on one of Connolly's ribs, and
then HIT (SMACK!) the governor's wrist-- doing so at a much, much
slower speed (est. 1900 feet per second) than it had initially started
(2296 feet per second).  If a bullet had been fired into a wrist
WITHOUT passing through the preceeding bodies, the damage would have
been far more substantial.
