HUFF POST: Sirhan Sirhan, the 77-year-old convicted assassin of presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy (1925-1968), has been granted parole by California's parole board after two of Kennedy's children endorsed freeing him. Douglas Harriman Kennedy (b. 1967) and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (b. 1954) supported Sirhan, while his eight other surviving children did not.
This ruling will be reviewed over the following 90 days by the board's staff, when it will be sent to Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-California) — presuming he survives the September recall — and he'll have 30 days to grant, reverse, or modify it.
I am against over-incarceration in general, but it boggles the mind that one could assassinate a presidential candidate and ever see freedom.
