I just read the DUsek/Pepper filing for a new trial.

AN impressive document and very soundly reasoned.

If Sirhan gets a new trial, he will be acquitted based on this evidence.

I really truly wish there would be a mock trial on this to expose hte public to the mockery of justice Sirhan had at his first trial.

Oh, I do hope so. His lawyers were dreadful. Never had a chance before. A new trial is definitely needed.

The California public needs to agitate on this and say the California Parole Board is not reflecting their will or even justice on this matter.

Jim posts a link to a killer case:

Succinctly stated at the outset, it is the take-away from all of us having read the Christian-Turner, Klaber-Melanson, Shane O'Sullivan recounting of the infamous framing of the hypnoprogrammed patsy despite the inconvenient fact he was not in position to fire the shots which killed the candidate.

7 CONCLUSION

2892

Michael Calder (JFK v CIA, 2000) identified this Jerry Bruno operative who directed the candidate to the pantry. The video of him coolly stopping by RFK on the gurney to appraise the damage, then walk on, is in high contrast to the emotional--near hysterical--reaction of virtually all.

Noguchi and VanPraag, Pena and Hernandez, the prepared patsy--deja vu all over again.
