Bullet switching and alleged hypnosis are part of new evidence in re-opened Sirhan trial.

After 43 years, new lawyers hired by Sirhan Sirhan - the assassin of Senator Robert F. Kennedy - are filing a new motion to re-open the case stating that the bullet found in Kennedy was switched and that Sirhan was hypnotized before the assassination. While it seems like a stretch, many believe that the US Supreme Court will allow the case to be re-opened as it is currently interested in any trial involving alleged misconduct on the part of the government.

"Lawyers representing convicted assassin Sirhan Sirhan argue in newly filed court documents that a bullet was switched in evidence at his trial and new forensic details show he is innocent of the 1968 killing of Sen."

I doubt very seriously if Sirhan will get a new trial. I think that before that happens someone else will end up dead. I am not saying that there was an actual conspiracy involved in RFK's death, but there were a lot of really sticky webs being spun politically and I don't think anyone still alive that was involved in those webs of deceit would like that information coming out during their lifetime. As an addendum to this piece, I have read that Bush Sr. said during the Warren commission investigation that he DID NOT remember where he was at the time JFK was killed. I think that woul... [More]

Response to: Muenzenhamster As to Sirhan Sirhan or Lee Harvey Oswald actually being "individuals that wanted to be known for "something" - I don't think so. If an individual had sufficient capacity to get a weapon into his workplace and find an opportunity to use it to assassinate a public figure surrounded by mulitple individuals and be a good enough marksman to kill 'only' the person he was planning on assassinating - why would that person, if he only 'wanted to be known for something', then either deny that he'd committed the crime; or say "oops...

@ Melo. Ruby was connected to Nixon, and we all know Nixon lost to Kennedy. Also, Prescott Bush was a close friend to Nixon, and hated JFK - not only for winning but for firing a few CIA agents whom were also close friends of P. Bush. If anyone (besides myself) finds it difficult to believe that Lee Oswald (tried) to defect to the Soviet Union, during a time when they were are worst enemies. Was allowed to walk back onto American soil, was not detained nor interrogated/questioned by the FBI/CIA and not under surveillance must be crazy. Oswald (it is documented) was working for the FBI, Hoover ... [More]

I left this part out by accident.............Ruby killed Oswald to silence him, (of course) - Ruby's family must have gained something from it through either Nixon or Prescott Bush because he died in prison just a few years after Oswald's murder. On a website dedicated to JFK's assassination there is a previously unpublished letter from J. Hoover (on the very day of JFK's murder) where Hoover states, Oswald is the lone gunman. Now, this conclusion is made only hours after Oswald's capture. No trial, no evidence, no jury conviction. Why would the head of the FBI be so qu... [More]

Ruby failed to clean the mess up earlier, Oswald knew something was fishy, Who says Oswald was trying hide in the cinema from police? He maybe felt he was being set up and would be taken out by his own faction.

An interesting story. If any government official, including any member of the judiciary, has anything to do with this, the status quo regarding Sirhan will be maintained. That Jack Ruby was known by so many, including the presumed assassin of MLK, is the most interesting part of the story.

i hope he makes it to trial and it is proven beyond a shadow that he's Innocent. That might make some people think.

Sirhan Sirhan... what really happened? When Noguchi (L.A. coroner) testified that the bullet entering RFK's head couldn't have been more than an "inch or two" away... the formerly highly accolade(d) forensic scientist was smeared by the Press. Security gaurd Eugene Caesar(positioned to the immediate right/rear of RFK) admits to having drawn his pistol. Anybody believe Sirhan shot RFK in the back of the head? What's UP with our government?
