John F. Kennedy on Crime
In contrast to the cursory look given to Kennedy's planned Dallas parade route, the Secret Service's Forensic Services Division now creates virtual 3-dimensional models of buildings along a motorcade route so that agents will know what to expect and can plan what to do at spots where the motorcade may be more vulnerable to attack.
In contrast to the open car Pres. Kennedy used, the presidential limousine now is a closed vehicle. Known affectionately as "the Beast," the 2009 Cadillac now in use was put into service for Barack Obama's inauguration. The Beast lives up to its moniker: the vehicle is armor-plated & can take a direct hit from a bazooka or grenade. The car's doors are eighteen inches thick, and its windows are five inches thick.
