death penalty would have been more humane.
Interesting to note that the killer of RFK was a radical Palestinian as well, the same kind issue as to why I am so incredibly in awe at how some politicians consider simple dissenting citizens a bigger problem than those who are radical, as well as sick jokers like bin Laden.
Send him to Gitmo!
ANd nobody thinks it’s a scandal that such killer comes for pa1ole. Pal, that’s the role of the system!
He made the mistake of killing one of the elite class, if he would have killed Earl Kennedy the sanitation worker he would have been out in five year. I’m not advocating he be released, but just noting that some lives are considered to be worth more by the legal system than others.
Bill Ayers: Thats not the Sirhan Sirhan dedication I knew
Kinda surprised he hasn’t done what Manson did last week, write a letter to oblunder asking for a presidential pardon.
Coroner Thomas Naguchi determined the fatal shot came from the rear of RFK, but witnesses stated Sirhan was at all times in front of RFK. RFK’s bodyguard was Thane Caesar, who lied to the LAPD about his ownership of a gun that matched the caliber of the fatal bullet, and the clip-on tie that RFK grabbed and held as he fell to the floor was Caesar’s.
And yet, the asshat nutcase that shot President Reagan for no good reason (I mean, he wasn’t even a TERRORIST or anything *SMIRK*) is allowed ‘free for all’ family visits and long weekends away from prison...
Some animals ARE more equal than others! *SPIT*
"Sirhan Sirhan remarked after a failure to get parole that If Robert Kennedy had been alive, HED have made sure the parole went through. Of all the dumb luckhe had to shoot the ONE GUY whod have been on his side."
Kennedy assassin Sirhan Sirhan & 9/11: foreknowledge of an attack?
According to the former prison guard at Corcoran, Sirhan Sihan, did something in the months before 9/11 he had not done at any other time during his decades of incarceration he ordered a television set for his cell. Interestingly, he showed no interest in watching television, only to occasionally check to make sure that the TV worked.
Then, on September 10, 2001, Sirhan Sirhan did something else he had not done before he shaved his head. Although he was always a clean cut inmate according to this prison guard, he had never shaved his head. According to the prison guard, inmates in California often shave their heads immediately before their gangs go to war against other factions to show their solidarity and support.
Then, on the morning of 9/11 Sirhan was up early in his cell watching his TV for the first time when the news broke about the planes hitting the World Trade Center. In some manner, it is obvious that Sirhan Bishara Sirhan, 33 years after the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy and a guest of the California prison system, had advance knowledge of the events of September 11, 2001.
A great number of questions remain, from the events of the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy to the events of 9/11. Based on the information from one prison guard, who was advised not to talk about the actions of Sirhan Sirhan or the FBIs extensive questioning of the prisoner beginning on September 12, 2001 and lasting for 3 weeks, it appears that a California prisoner who changed the course of history has at least some of the answers.
Why isnt there anyone in government asking the questions?
yes, that’s very convincing “evidence”. yawn
Our tax dollars at work.
Sirhan claims he has no memory of the killing.
Oh, for Pete’s Sake...attempted murder on a Republican is STILL OK in your book?
Shall I site President Lincoln’s ASSASSINATION, instead? I was trying to keep it somewhat current for the children lurking...
Reagan’s shooter, John Hinckley, was a member of the American Nazi party in 1979.
Kennedy did die, you might recall and Reagan did not. ____________________________________________
Weren’t the intentions the same?
“Some animals ARE more equal than others! *SPIT*”
You failed to take into account party affiliation of the shootee.
“Kennedy did die, you might recall and Reagan did not.”
Reagan was the U.S. President, you might recall, and Kennedy was not.
One is a lesser charge thus would have a lesser penalty.
As for this comment specifically:
Oh, for Petes Sake...attempted murder on a Republican is STILL OK in your book?
Words fail me as how that assumption can be made by any logically thinking person.
Another way to look at it is that someone who wanted Reagan dead was found to be insane, and someone who wanted a Kennedy dead wasn’t. I’ll leave any conclusions from those facts as an exercise for the reader . . . .
“The difference is “murder” vs. “attempted murder”.
One is a lesser charge thus would have a lesser penalty.”
One can make a death threat against Joe Blow with a few consequences. A death threat against a sitting President is a Federal Offense. Shooting RFK and shooting the President are not the same thing.
"...who was advised not to talk about the actions of Sirhan Sirhan or the FBIs extensive questioning of the prisoner beginning on September 12, 2001 and lasting for 3 weeks ..."
Maybe they asked them all already?
Neither is: Killing RFK and shooting the President.
Maybe he should have been sent to Club Gitmo where they could question him in a more persuasive way.
