Kennedy Family Splits Over RFK Assassin’s Parole Release
Most of the children of Robert F. Kennedy say they are shocked and devastated by the surprise decision of a California parole board to release their father's confessed and convicted assassin, Sirhan Bushara Sirhan. Kerry Kennedy says she is still traumatized by the shooting. But another Kennedy sibling, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., has supported Sirhan's quest for parole. Writing to the board, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. said he had met his father's killer in prison and was moved by the man, who pleaded forgiveness.
