RFK Assassin : June 5, 1968

November 27, 2011 by staff 

RFK Assassin : June 5, 1968, Sirhan Sirhan, convicted of the 1968 assassination of presidential candidate Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, should be freed from prison or granted a new trial based on “formidable evidence” asserting his innocence and “horrendous violations” of his rights, defense attorneys said in federal court papers filed this week.

In a U.S. District Court brief, Sirhan’s lawyers also say that an expertanlysis of recently uncovered evidence shows two guns were fired in the assassination and that Sirhan’s revolver was not the gun that shot Kennedy.

Attorneys William F. Pepper and Laurie D. Dusek also allege that fraud was committed in Sirhan’s 1969 trial when the court allowed a substitute bullet to be admitted as evidence for a real bullet removed from Kennedy’s neck.

The attorneys further assert that Sirhan was hypno-programmed to be a diversion for the real assassin and allege that Sirhan would be easily blamed for the assassination because he is an Arab. Sirhan, 67, is a Christian Palestinian born in Jerusalem whose parents brought him and his siblings to America in the 1950s.

Sirhan “was an involuntary participant in the crimes being committed because he was subjected to sophisticated hypno programming and memory implantation techniques which rendered him unable to consciously control his thoughts and actions at the time the crimes were being committed,” court papers said.

    If there is any truth or suspected truth in the allegations, I say check them out. No one should be in prison if they are innocent. Then perhaps we would have room for those who are guilty. I felt bad because I always thought Bobby Kennedy was the best of the other Kennedy men. I still fell that way. I also think Ethel was the best of the daughter-inlaws. I would have liked to have seen Bobby as president because I always thought he had the guts to get the job done. And if his killer is walking around free I would like to see him pay the price.
