Dallas police chief talks about the gunfire that killed JFK

Rare video from Vince Palamara, via JFK Lancer:


Peter Dale Scott’s straightforward interview with Jesse Curry, chief of the Dallas Police Department who was riding at the front of presidential motorcade on November 22, 1963. Curry talks about his observations at the scene of the crime.

Who was Jesse Curry? Spartacus Educational has a good summary.


  1. Jonathan says:

    In his Warren Commission testimony, Jesse Curry recounts looking in the rear view mirror of his lead car and seeing a commotion in the motorcade behind him, then seeing the presidential limousine begin to speed up. He testifies:

    “…and about this time a motorcycle officer, I believe it was Officer Chaney rode up beside us and I asked if something happened back there and he said, “Yes,” and I said, “Has somebody been shot?” And he said “I think so.”

    Chaney rode the inboard motorcycle to the right rear of the presidential limo.

    The extant Z-film, toward its end, shows Curry’s lead car heading to and under the triple underpass. It does not show James Chaney AT ALL once the president’s limo emerges from behind the Stemmons sign. Yet Altgens6, which corresponds to Z-265, shows Chaney riding abreast of JKF and, having turned his head 90 degrees to his left, staring intently at JFK, just a few feet away.

    Conclusion: The extant Z-film is not an accurate depiction of (a) Jesse Curry’s sworn testimony, or (b) Altgens6.

    I pray ALL facts will be found and shared globally. God bless you all in searching for truth on President Kennedy’s assignation and all who were involved as well on the day if his assignation. God Bless! tatiana

    This is a great interview.
    Jesse Curry doesn’t seen to be real excited about agreeing that there WERE 2 shooters that day in his official area.
