Schwarzenegger Avoids Kennedy Killer Parole Decision

LATEST: California Governor ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER has been spared a difficult decision, after the state's parole board refused to release the killer of his wife's uncle ROBERT F KENNEDY. SIRHAN B SIRHAN, who fatally shot the US Senator in Los Angeles' Ambassador Hotel on 5 June 1968, had his application for parole rejected yesterday (15MAR06). TIP KINDEL of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, says, "Essentially, the board found he continues to be a danger to public safety and is not suitable to parole." Psychiatric exam results claim Jordanian-born Sirhan "hates Americans and, if released, wants to be involved in Middle East politics". If the parole board were to recommend Sirhan for release, Schwarzenegger would have been able to intervene and override the decision. Sirhan was 24 years old when he fired a gun eight times into a crowd of people including Kennedy, just minutes after the politician won the California Presidential Primary. The troubled youth, born to Palestinian parents, felt betrayed by Kennedy who showed support for Israel during the 1967 Six-Day War. Schwarzenegger's wife MARIA SHRIVER is the daughter of EUNICE KENNEDY SHRIVER - Robert's sister.
