California Board Votes To Parole Sirhan Sirhan, Robert F. Kennedy Assassin

California Board Votes To Parole Sirhan Sirhan, Robert F. Kennedy Assassin

“The decision by the two-member panel doesn’t assure his release.”

Sirhan Sirhan, the man who shot and killed Robert F. Kennedy in 1968, has just been granted parole in California.

In a post about this earlier this week, I asked, if Lee Harvey Oswald was alive today would he be eligible for parole too?

There are still steps to be taken before Sirhan is actually released, but at this point it looks as though it’s going to happen.

Louis Casiano reports at FOX News:

Robert Kennedy’s assassin Sirhan Sirhan granted parole by California board

Robert F. Kennedy’s assassin, Sirhan Sirhan, was granted parole by a California board Friday after spending more than 50 years in prison after two of his sons said they support his release, a decision that still needs to be approved by the governor.

Sirhan gunned down Kennedy, then a Democratic U.S. Senator from New York and brother of President John F. Kennedy, in 1968 at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles moments after Kennedy delivered a victory speech in the pivotal California primary. Sirhan was convicted of first-degree murder.

Sirhan, a Christian Palestinian from Jordan, has said he was angry at Kennedy for his support of Israel.

This was his 16th appearance before the parole board.

“I would never put myself in jeopardy again,” he told the parole board from a San Diego County prison where he appeared for the virtual proceeding. “You have my pledge. I will always look to safety and peace and non-violence.”

The decision by the two-member panel doesn’t assure his release. It will next go up for a board review and requires approval from California Gov. Gavin Newsom.

How crazy is this decision? Even the far left law professor Laurence Tribe disagrees with the idea.

Can’t wait to hear Newsom’s comment on this. Even in California, I would expect that there’s plenty of “Kennedy Worship”, and if Newsom approves Sirhan’s parole (or even just fails to condemn it) his chances in the recall will take another drastic plunge.

As always with the left, victims and their loved ones get the shaft. Lord protect us from liberal “compassion.”

If Charles Mansion were alive he probably would get paroled too..

“his release, a decision that still needs to be approved by the governor.”

No sirree, No sirree, Sirhan Sirhan.

He was a political prisoner. Had he shot somebody with the name of “Smith” or “Jones”, he would have been out years ago.

Why is it this is the only bad guy the left has an issue with?? He is not the only person that killed a liberal that’s been turned loose.

I thank Sirhan for his service to America and regret only that RFK had spawned as profusely as he already had. America owes Sirhan a debt of gratitude.

I recommend that the Mass Pike be renamed in his honor, as Sirhan Highway and that the Kennedy family name be expunged from the public record.

And, for the record, there is no way in the world that the bullet that entered behind Kennedy’s ear came from Sirhan’s firearm.

Tony Shaloob is Sirhan Sirhan!

not really surprising–after all, when you exonerate a marginal police officer for the coldblooded murder of an unarmed civilian exercising their rights what’s a parole decision for a convicted murderer?
