Every Democrat who was old enough to remember, cry, grieve and live through the shock should get a vote on this. Poor baby got to live 54 more years than the man he murdered. I vote to burn his files and let the world forget where he is and that he's even still alive.

I saw a video of him at one of the parole hearings. At least 10 years ago. He did not seem to be remorseful then. But he did want to get parole.
 
2022-09-29 4:25:03 PM  
Fine, name who really killed him.  You can't?  Well then, it's because you did it, didn't you?

And this is why you don't get a say. You want revenge and that's not the way it's supposed to work.

He should have thought about that before he shot John Lennon.

Retribution is actually a very important part of a justice system. Without it, people begin to question the worth of the law.

You want to live the rest of your life "in peace"? Well, maybe Robert Kennedy would have liked to have lived THE REST OF HIS LIFE instead of being murdered young by you, you total miserable f*cking asshole. The deepest, darkest, most foul prison cell in the country isn't bad enough to house your lying ass. Or maybe you SHOULD be granted parole, and the instant you step into freedom someone walks up behind you, sticks a gun to the back of your head, and pulls the trigger. That's OK with you, right? If you can do that to someone, it's just fine if someone else does that to you, right? RIGHT?? Asshole.

If the law says that somebody who kills people should be locked way from the public because that will keep the person from running around killing folks, people won't see the worth in that separate from the punitive/revenge aspect?  I have a hard time buying into that.
 
2022-09-29 4:41:06 PM  
Until or unless there is a sound and substantial argument for compassionate release, no.
You didn't shoot a f**king shopkeeper - you helped shatter America. You and two other murderous assholes set this nation on a path of self destruction from which it may never recover. We are fighting fascists in our streets and legislatures today, at least in part because of what YOU did.
And you want out?

Retribution and revenge are not the same thing. Legal punishment has outlined actions that are used. skybird is advocating for above and beyond that based on the whims of the masses.

Since there was no doubt that he did it, trial, conviction and swift execution was the answer, and we wouldn't have people wringing their hands and blabbering today.

Imagine how much better our world could have been if RFK became President and Nixon finally f*cked off forever after a loss in 1968.

I remember it well, and it gave us Nixon and Kissinger and so on.   That act killed a part of this nation and made it worse since.

Here's my deal.   If he tells us who ordered the hit and provides proof that it was a hit, then let him go.

I am in no way saying the US "justice" system is competent or good. Just that this kumbayah attitude of "it's only about rehabilitation!" or whatever is nonsense. Victims want vengeance and they have to get a certain amount of it or they don't feel justice is served.

Legal punishment doesn't necessarily meet the public's expectations for retribution. And they are free to express that, lobby for further consequences, and informally subject the criminal to scorn and prejudice. That's life, bro.

That's up to the individual person. Someone up-thread clearly felt that 50 years in prison wasn't sufficient. Again, just because the law sets up a punishment doesn't mean that everyone will concede that punishment is sufficient.

RFK had powder burns on the entrance wound. Sirhan was never close enough to do that.

Yeah, he shot at RFK, but the armed bodyguard behind RFK is almost certainly the one who shot him.

That would not have been a good narrative for anyone involved, so made Sirhan take the fall.

Let him go.
 
2022-09-29 5:11:38 PM  
He is lucky they did not give him the chair, he killed a man that probably would have been president and changed history so he can sit in a hole and rot.

Not disagreeing, but the JFK assassination was a bigger tragedy, particularly since the perpetrators (Ted Cruz's family) never faced justice.

That he should still be in prison but on the scale of "tragedy" the murder would rank somewhere below Michael Jackson's death.

Not personal retribution; society's retribution.
 
2022-09-29 5:15:33 PM
