(Testimony of Emmett J. Hudson)

Mr. Hudson.
Oh, probably 2 minutes.
Mr. Liebeler.
As much as 2 minutes?
Mr. Hudson.
It might not have been that long.
Mr. Liebeler.
But you thought he had plenty of time to get all the shots off anyway?
Mr. Hudson.
Yes.
Mr. Liebeler.
Did you ever do any shooting?
Mr. Hudson.
Well, not no big rifle--I haven't never done no shooting with no big rifle. I have shot shotguns---.22's and things like that.
Mr. Liebeler.
Did the shots seem evenly spaced or were some of them closer together?
Mr. Hudson.
They seemed pretty well evenly spaced.
Mr. Liebeler.
Evenly spaced; is that it?
Mr. Hudson.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Liebeler.
Did anybody talk to you at all about security arrangements prior to the time the motorcade came by, or was that all handled by the police?
Mr. Hudson.
That was all handled by the police.
Mr. Liebeler.
You didn't have anything to do with anything like that?
Mr. Hudson.
That's right--the fact of the business is, I didn't know they had been routed that way.
Mr. Liebeler.
You didn't even know it was going to go by until they came?
Mr. Hudson.
That's right.
Mr. Liebeler.
Have you been interviewed by the FBI?
Mr. Hudson.
Yes, sir.
Mr. Liebeler.
Do you remember who talked to you?
Mr. Hudson.
Not by name, I don't; no, sir.
Mr. Liebeler.
And did you tell them approximately the same thing you have told me?
Mr. Hudson.
Yes; approximately the same thing.
Mr. Liebeler.
Did the Secret Service talk to you, or the Dallas Police Department or the FBI?
Mr. Hudson.
The FBI and I made a deposition over at the courthouse---the same day that the assassination was.
Mr. Liebeler.
That was the Dallas Police Department or the sheriff's office?
Mr. Hudson.
The sheriff's office.
Mr. Liebeler.
Okay, Mr. Hudson, I want to thank you very much for coming in. I don't have any more questions.
Mr. Hudson.
Well, if it has been any help, I am glad it did.
Mr. Liebeler.
Pardon?
Mr. Hudson.
If it has been any help, I am glad to come down.
Mr. Liebeler.
I think you have been and we are glad to have you cooperate with us in the way you have. I want to thank you very much on behalf of the Commission.
Mr. Hudson.
All right, good day.
