RFK’s Son Robert Francis Kennedy Jr: I Don’t Believe Sirhan Did It

As a witness of the broadcast of RFK’s victory speech and the virtually simultaneous announcement of his assassination at the Ambassador Hotel while I was serving as a university coordinator for RFK for President, I feel a heavy sense of duty to support RFK, Jr.’s plea for a fresh official approach to the death of his father. 

With the 50th anniversary of the death of Robert Francis Kennedy approaching on the 6th of June, we must not forget the circumstances of his brutal murder that followed the cruel murder of his brother, JFK, and the vicious murder of MLK, Jr.

Today, RFK’s case rises in importance because his son, RFK, Jr. calls for a new investigation stating that he is not convinced by the original handling of the case and he has lost all confidence in the ‘lone nut’ theory adopted by the prosecution of Sirhan.

In doing so, RFK follows members of the King family who have long called for a new investigation into the facts of the murder of MLK.  For decades public, private and scientific dissatisfaction with the case of JFK remains a massive lacuna in our understanding of the United States of America in the turbulent 20th century.

Finally, the media-driven mantra of ‘conspiracy theory’ has collapsed while the lone gunman theories of these three iconic political assassinations have disappeared under the stark gaze of scientific analysis and the testimony of credible eyewitnesses including Paul Schrade, a genuine American hero who survived a bullet wound to his head at the side of RFK on that fateful evening in the pantry of the Ambassador Hotel half a century ago.
