What Would Happen Today?

The Chron discusses the far less well known (at least to me) conspiracy questions over RFK's assassination.

The piece discusses audio recordings that experts claim captured the sound of 13 rounds, all of which could not have come from Sirhan Sirhan's 8-round gun. And there's some women in a polka dot dress who said "we shot him."

There are some iconic photos from the murder. And that recording.

But if the same were to happen today, would it be possible for the case to remain unresolved? Digital audio and video recordings? Every attendee at an event likely armed with at least a camera phone if not a digital camera that records not just images but frequently video with sound as well?

Eye-witness confusion will never be erased, but with such a higher probability that actors will be caught on camera - would a modern assassination look anything like what rocked the U.S. in the 1960s?
