AP: RFK Assassin Sirhan Wins Parole With Support Of Two Kennedys
SAN DIEGO (AP) — U.S. Sen. Robert F. Kennedy’s assassin was granted parole Friday after two of RFK’s sons spoke in favor of Sirhan Sirhan’s release and prosecutors declined to argue he should be kept behind bars.
Calling his father’s killer “a human being worthy of compassion and love,” one of Robert F. Kennedy’s children may have helped secure the freedom for Sirhan Sirhan. But his release is not assured, yet.
