What is it with the jackasses who want Sirhan, Sirhan set free

Some fool wrote this letter to the SF Chron suggesting a really kewl way to respect Bobby Kennedy's memory on the anniversary of his assassination. He wants to release Sirhan from prison. His premis of caring about the costs involved in the upkeep of Sirhan is a front for his real beliefs. People such as he do not care about the costs of incarcerating criminals, they care about murderers. No doubt he thinks Sirhan had jusification for his crime because he was an oppressed Palestinian. No doubt Mr Gallagher was an ardent supporter of the IRA too. Or maybe Miss C just stereotyping again.

Miss C, on the other hand, is happy to foot the bill for Sirhan's prison cafeteria prepared halal meals, and his Preparation H, until Allah sees fit to take him into paradise. Perhaps Mr Gallagher could stage an escape, that way Mr Gallagher and Sirhan can hold hands in paradise for eternity.

Miss C also takes leave to doubt that Sirhan could transition from prison to work easily. But then again, maybe he would open a kosher Deli called Sirhan's and all the confused lefties who hate themselves would flock there.

"Set Sirhan free
Editor - Forty years after the assassination of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, the only unanswered question should be: What taxpayer interest is being served by keeping Kennedy's killer, Sirhan Sirhan, now 64 years old, in prison?
However reprehensible Sirhan's actions were, why should the state's taxpayers continue to pay for his housing and medical care four decades later?
If Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is serious about tackling the bloated costs of our prison system, then he should grant clemency to Sirhan, who might already have been given an early release if his victim had not been a Kennedy."

I don't think that it needs to be a kosher deli. I think that those who care about kashrut (more traditional conservative leaning Jews) would like to see him rot in jail. Assimilated food Jews just need "kosher style" food. But I get your point.

Well, my friend's Palestinian husband always said the only people he trusted to make his food were Jews.

If that is true, it's funny and shows how scary (not) us ZionaziJews really are. Mwahahahaha.

I guess that I have been lulled into a false sense of security about the Zionazis. It must have happened in 3rd grade in Baltimore, when our teacher had the mother of one of my Jewish classmates come and cook potato pancakes for us. We ate of the latkes and applesauce and saw that jews were not going to poison our food as we had been led to believe. At least that time, anyway.

They were fattening you up for ritual slaughter later, haven't you read Al Jazeera?

These "Free Whomever!" letters always use language like "However reprehensible Sirhan's actions were..."

They can't even say he did something bad- it's a matter of judgment.

The letter is right in one way, though- I'd almost be willing to bet that Sirhan and the Folger/Tate/LaBianca killer are California's senior convicts. I suspect there are very few who have been confined there since 1968.

The best reason for setting Sirhan free is that he didn't kill Robert Kennedy.

Oh Gary, just stop it. Get some meds and you won't be so delusional.
