Muslim who killed Robert F Kennedy loses 15th parole bid as witness says: ‘It’s my fault’

The convicted killer of Senator Robert F Kennedy has been denied parole for the 15th time after telling a board that he could not remember shooting John F Kennedy’s brother in 1968 and was therefore unable to confess.

    I bet he wouldn’t have been denied parole if his victim was a mere mortal like you or I.

  • Isn’t he a Christian? His family was, anyway.

      Yes, and I’m surprised the Guardian made no mention of this. At his trial he said he shot RFK for his country (Palestine), not for Christ, but he’s still a useful poster boy for the “Look! See? Christian Arabs can be terrorists too! Islam has nothing to do with it!” crowd.

      • BillyHW

        Now that’s funny, because Palestine isn’t a country.

    He look pretty good; nearly fifty years of getting eight hours sleep each night, healthy diet, no drug alcohol or abuse, plus no worrying about paying bills or putting food on the table does wonders for your health.

    Is it not possible for someone to just ‘lose the key’.

    “The evidence indicates that at least 9 shots were fired that night, yet
    Sirhan wielded an 8-shot revolver, which he did not reload.”

      How did those tricksters get a grassy knoll in a hotel?

        must have been magic bullets
