Do you know precisely where the heart is in the chest? Not just generally, but exactly, down to the millimeter.
Do you know precisely where the shooter aimed? Not just generally, but exactly, down to the millimeter.
What should be known is that the aortic arch is close to the heart...close enough that someone aiming for the heart could easily miss and sever the aorta.
Absent an autopsy showing a bullet wound to the cardiac muscle, just because someone says "heart shot" doesn't mean the bullet went into the heart itself....because absent an autopsy there's damn few ways to know with a certainty.
"Heart shot"....is probably what it looked like. That's not what it necessarily is.

I’m not going to try to guess/diagnose from …thousands of miles away if someone is staging for propaganda purposes butttt…
When someone is wounded, mortally, it’s not uncommon for them to focus on the brightest object around, in this case the camera, if it had a flash or whatever. Disclaimer, I didn’t view the video and have no desire to do so. I don’t know if the area was lit up, or not.

The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
Moderator's Warning: There's a good deal of trolling, flaming, and baiting going on in this thread by a couple of people. Both need to end it and get back on the topic and discuss this without lobbying insults or acting like jerks.

It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
Would the opposition take a chance on a faked video being debunked?? I understand the motivation for sympathy based upon a killing of a young woman but I just cannot understand taking the risk of having a fake unmasked.

All freedom-loving Americans should support the Iranian people in their efforts to obtain freedom and democracy. I post this in green, in solidarity with the Iranian people!
NEDA was her name. Remember her.
