Weekly Roar: Family Squabble; Mary Jo Kopechne Remembered
Vocal Minority ^ | 7/18/09 | EricTheRed_VocalMinority

Senator Edward Kennedy is a murderer. He should not be celebrated as an elder statesmen who has done wonderful things for our country (Go back and see some of his landmark bills and what they have done to this country). July 18, 1969 should be remembered for the loss of life to Mary Jo Kopechne. Mary Jo was what was called a “Boiler Room Girl” for working in, well, boiler room conditions on Robert Kennedy’s 1968 presidential campaign. She was part speech writer, part secretary, but from all accounts a nice girl who believed in Robert Kennedy and his causes (which at the time, I would have too).

Mary Jo was devastated by the assassination of Robert Kennedy (as was Rosie Greer, the great football player and personal friend and bodyguard of Robert Kennedy). She left politics, only to return 6 months later. A party held in the Boiler Room Girl’s honor, the 4th such party, was held in 1969, and Teddy was oh so eager to help Mary Jo catch the last ferry of the night.

Teddy Boy, who swears he was not drinking—really, anyone ever see Teddy not drinking at a party, or anytime for that matter—makes a wrong turn off a wooden bridge. He escapes what is sure to be a watery grave, and again swears he tried to save Mary Jo, but he could not. He then goes back to his hotel room, dries off,

All of the Keneddys were, are, and likely forever will be trash.

Mary Jo deserves a NATIONAL HOLIDAY in her NAME, for saving us from a Teddy KEGGER ..err .. Kennedy Administration, which thus gave the USA another 30 years of LIFE.

There is a special place in Hell for Ted Kennedy. Even now, Lucifer is stoking the coals to get them nice and comfortable for ole’ “Chappaquiddick Ted”, who will be coming along shortly. I am sure Mary Jo Kopechne will encourage Ted to walk away from the light, and will be more than happy to throw a few extra coals on the Barbie for him.

Mary Jo was pregnant with Eddie’s baby - he couldn’t have that!

Killed by a famous drunk driver. Ted “you-question-my-patriotism” Kennedy - the first blue-blood, American-raised proud-to-be Communist that inspired the current breed of Pelosi, Kerry, Reid, Dean, Edwards, Frank, and a whole host of other traitors.

That’s just silly! People like the Kennedys don’t breed with the peons. They’re here to save them from themselves, not sleep with them.

A great, GREAT book: “Senatorial Privilege”. It tells it all.

She used up all the oxygen in the pocket of air trapped in the car with her. There were 4 nearby houses The Swimmer could have stopped at before going to his hotel for a shower, shave and nap.

That is murder. But he is a Kennedy. So instead of a long prison sentence, which he deserved, he ended up getting (a few years ago) a big hug from former President GHW Bush, who was as stupid as those rocks on which the smashed car is resting.

They may sleep with the peons. They just don’t reproduce with them. Kennedys couldn’t bear the strain of that second DNA string.

I never thought he was a murderer. Just someone who was criminally negligent in a death and who got away with it because he was an influential senator.

Murder requires premeditation and it is unlikely that anyone will ever prove that Fat Teddy intended to murder Mary Jo.

However he is without a doubt guilty of manslaughter and should have served time and been forced to forfeit his plush Senatorial position.

We should however, thank Teddy for at least challenging the Buffoon from Georgia, aka Jimmy Carter in the 1980 Democratic primaries, which weakened the Carter campaign for the general election in November, not that Ronald Reagan needed any help in evicting that chiklet-grinning goofball from the White House.

In New York, there are two mens reas for murder [homicide], ‘intentional’ and ‘depraved indifference’. Leaving somebody to die in a submerged car might be considered depraved indifference.

‘First degree manslaughter’ requires an intent to cause serious physical injury with a death. ‘Second degree manslaughter’ involves physical injury and death [punch to nose, fall, head strikes table corner, etc]

‘Criminally negligent homicide’ requires death resulting from criminal negligence [a higher level of failure to perceive than civil negligence]

Murder is a Class ‘A’ felony, Man 1 is a ‘B violent’, Man 2 is a ‘D’, Crim Neg is an ‘E’.

NOTE: These crimes do not include those involving vehicles, which are separate.

Good thing Fat Teddy had the good fortune to have his ‘accident’ in Massive-two-sh*ts.

And now our country is being quickly shaped in that coward's image. Selling Israel down the river. Selling democracy in Honduras down the river. (just to name 2)
