Student under fire for shout: 'Remember Chappaquiddick!'
WorldNetDaily ^ | February 22, 2006 | Ron Strom

Posted on 02/23/2006 12:13:15 AM PST by CrawDaddyCA

A community college student in Massachusetts faces possible disciplinary action for shouting "Remember Chappaquiddick!" during an on-campus speech by Democrat Sen. Edward Kennedy.

Paul Trost, 20, a student at Massasoit Community College in Brockton, Mass., says he was upset by an introduction of Kennedy given by Rep. Stephen Lynch, D-Mass., in which the congressman noted how the long-time senator overcame hardship in life on his way to success.

"Lynch said Kennedy had overcome such adversity to get to the place he was, and that's a bunch of bull," Trost said of the introduction, which occurred in the school's student center Tuesday morning.

Just as Kennedy began speaking, Trost was walking out of the room when he shouted, "Remember Chappaquiddick!"

"Most of the crowd gasped," Trost said. "Then I walked out of the student center."

The student says a campus police officer went outside and stopped him. He also saw some state troopers go outside, the type who accompany Kennedy around the state to provide security.

Trost says the cop took down his information and told him he would be hearing from school officials about disciplinary action. A spokesman with the campus police verified the incident but stressed that Trost was not arrested.

The student said one of his teachers confronted him after a class about the Chappaquiddick issue.

"One of my teachers called me ignorant and told me this was an embarrassment to the school," Trost told WND. "She said to me, 'Can't you forgive him after all these years?' And I said, 'No, he killed somebody.'

"If it had been me or any other person, we'd be in jail," Trost says he told his instructor.

Referring to his two-word shout, Trost said, "I did it because I know about Kennedy's past. I know what happened at Chappaquiddick.

"I wanted to send a message to him that my generation still knows about it. We haven't forgotten about it."

Trost said he was satisfied to know that students on campus were talking about the Chappaquiddick incident later in the day – some of whom, in fact, were not familiar with it.

In 1969, Kennedy was driving a car that went off a bridge on Chappaquiddick Island, off the coast of Martha's Vineyard, Mass. His passenger, Mary Jo Kopechne, was killed after the car landed upside down in the water. No autopsy was ever performed to determine her exact cause of death.

At the time, Kennedy claimed he tried several times to swim down to reach Kopechne to no avail. He came under fire for not reporting the incident to authorities until the next morning. In the interim he reportedly made an effort to call a family legal adviser.

"I haven't yet found out what's going to happen to me," Trost said, referring to the warning from campus police.

He waited until the next day to report the incident to the authorities? Why aren't the democrats calling for him to resign as they are Dick Cheney? Lousy hypocrites.

More open minded tolerance, acceptance and support of free speech on campus I see.

Too bad by "Free Speech" they didn't mean for us....

Yep the same people lamenting the lack of protests and political activisim on campus these days, will be deeply offended by this student's political activism/theatre.

'Can't you forgive him after all these years?'

It was just some bimbo. No mere woman compares to the life and political career of a Kennedy.

I just hope this young man does not get in terrible trouble for this. He was stating a fact, yet, think of all the conservative/Republican speakers who have been physically assaulted by the liberal crowd and nothing has happened to them.

>>His passenger, Mary Jo Kopechne,

Had it not been for Ted, the sons and daughters of
Miss Kopechne, were she to get married, would have been
born and would have probably been in their thirties by now.
This guy was born well after Chappaquiddick but he
knew of the incident and wanted to remind everyone.

As ytedk.com points out:

""Do we operate under a system of equal justice under law?
Or is there one system for the average citizen
and another for the high and mighty?"
- Senator Ted Kennedy, 1973 -

I'm glad to see this young man sees that we have an 'elite' class in America. He's absolutely correct, had this been an ordinary citizen, he'd still be sitting in a jail cell (and rightfully so).

Kennedy murdered that poor girl, and no amount of whitewashing will cover it up.

At this stage he probably wondered if Chappaquidik is a new microbrew he hasn't tried.

I just LOVE how campuses are into that whole "free speech" and "takin' it to the man" and "talking back to those in power" thing!

Notice the cover for Ted, who killed a woman, compared with Time/Newsweek's for the VP, who hurt someone and immediately got help.

I bet Uncle Teddy thought he got off scot-free after paying Mary Jo Kopechne's family around $150,000 to shut up and then being elected to the Senate.

I bet he thought it would be nothing in 40 years, that everyone would have forgotten that party in the boonies where an unknown girl died because he was drunk and had to sleep it off while she stayed trapped in a car, and drowned...

I bet Uncle Teddy thought we were all fooled by that neck brace BS, that we'd all just forgive and forget.

Too bad that the only person he can truly ask forgiveness from, he killed. I'd love to hear Mary Jo's recollection of what exactly happened that night.

Mary Jo was a "little person," an unknown woman, a "nobody."
One of those people Kennedy claims to speak for...well, she didn't get spoken for, and she's dead. One of the "little people Uncle Teddy forgot, apparently.

Bad news, Uncle Teddy: I haven't forgotten. It took a looooong time for your cousin to face prison after killing Martha. You may not face prison, but I will remember Mary Jo.

>>Term limits

Broken promise by Cong. Martin "T-For-Taliban" Meehan
(D-MA), or "Andy Meehan" as Ted once introduced him:
He'd only serve 4 2-year terms. He PROMISED.

From 1999: "U.S. Term Limits, dedicated to the proposition that no member of the U.S. House should serve more than eight years, is buying up cable television time in Meehan's 5th Congressional District. The group is running a 30-second attack ad bashing Meehan's decision to abandon his self-imposed four-term pledge and launch a campaign for a fifth term. To make their point, producers dug up old file footage of Meehan railing against "career politicians in Washington." That was in 1992 during Meehan's campaign against incumbent Chester Atkins. Meehan took the four-term pledge and won. In 1995, he went so far as to write a "letter of resignation" instructing the House clerk to remove his name from the congressional record if he won a fifth term."

He's still in office.

The teacher was problably researching it. Probably didn't even know about it.

If he ever oozes his nasty ass into Chicago I'm going to dress up like the ghost of a female drowning victim with a "Mary Jo" sign around my neck. Then I'll just mosey on in to where ever he's speaking.

Might even be worth paying for the ticket.

Where is the ACLU protecting this mans "FREEDOM OF SPEECH?"

Any bets if they had yelled anything against the war to Bush or Cheney, it would be a freedom of speech issue?
