    In Memory of Mary Jo Kopechne (July 26, 1940 – July 18, 1969)

    The "hero" of Caroline Kennedy is her Uncle Teddy, and now Barack Obama. But Caroline's selective amnesia has caused her to forget that her "hero" is really a killer. A drunk driver who drove his car into the deep waters of Chappaquiddick Island, killing Mary Jo Kopechne, an American teacher, secretary and administrator.

    As "Teddy" stood before this years DNC in Denver, dying from an inoperable brain tumor, I wondered if the memories of Mary Jo still haunted his soul? After all, it was a mere 38 years ago that the "moral compass" of the DNC, Caroline's hero, got into a car with a woman who was not his wife and drove off a bridge leaving this vibrant young lady to drown while he ran off into the darkness of night on Chappaquiddick Island to get help from his Daddy's lawyers. He didn't run to get help to save this young woman, but, rather to seek help from his father's well paid attorney's to get him off for driving drunk and killing an innocent young woman who must have viewed him as her hero before he killed her....

    I was as angry with [Uncle] Teddy last night as I was when read that he had out-run the long-arm-of-the-law for driving drunk and taking the life of another human being. Teddy should not have been on that stage recommending Obama for the office of President of these United States. For ending the life of another human, Kennedy should never have been allowed to reach the position of the DNC's moral compass.

    So, I say: shame on Caroline for forgetting Mary Jo...shame on the DNC for forgetting Mary Jo...and shame on Obama, for having the poor moral choice to select a killer to introduce him to the country as his [Ted's] candidate of choice to become the next American President.

    The stage in Denver reeked of pure hypocrisy, and for those that have flippantly forgotten the blood of Mary Jo Kopechne on Teddy's hands, shame on you!!!

    We can't afford to have people like Kennedy telling us how great a man Obama is, when he himself is morally lacking any sense of consciousness or thought. But, than again, Obama may look pretty good to a man who cold-heartedly ended the life of another, and went on as if nothing happened.

    Shalom,

    By no means do I condone what Kennedy did.

    But lets stay in the present.

    My basic rule is:

    Over 15 years ago - Leave it alone

    10-15 years - case by case basis

    5 -10 years take a very close look

    under 5 years = current events

    Remember, Bush had a DWI - but that was ancient history - now if had repeated offenses over several years...

    Ninety civilians including 60 children were just murdered by a U.S. bombing attack in Afghanistan. Those kids could have had a chance to grow up but not any more.

    Did Bush Kill Someone?

    I know I'm opening a door, a very wide door, for comments on this, but, the DWI Bush had did not kill anyone, and he paid the price for his DWI. Kennedy never paid the "fiddler" for his wrong, and Americans should never forget Mary Jo, NEVER!

    Of course, IJMHO!!!

    That was NOT murder, brother!

    There is murder, and there is collateral damage. You are a well spoken brother, but, you need to understand that what you called murder was an accidental act of war.

    Secondly, if you are going to mention murdering children, then you need to mention the killing of children in this country. Abortion is our nation's daily act of violence toward children that never will have a chance to enjoy one minute of life on this planet.

    Caroline Kennedy was a little girl at the time Mary Jo was murdered.
    Why do you want to drag her into this. Spew away on your hatred towards Teddy, who cares but this is sick to connect Caroline Kennedy in this matter that happened over 40 years ago. Please get some professional help selfrighteousdude.

    Mary Jo deserves some sort of special recognition for keeping that fool from running effectively for president.

    The sympathy vote most likely would have gotten him elected although his politics are miles left of Johns.

    Besides, If I had done that...even 40 years ago, I would STILL be in prison.

    Forget Who?

    Hey Righteousdude2, you need to get over it. It was an accident, it happened a long time ago. Get over it!

    There are a lot of people who have committed manslaughter who never went to jail. Do you hold it against them all like you do Kennedy?

    I do, because justice and the law should be equal for all, not just the poor. The rich should be held just as accountable as the poor.

    What do you expect? We just saw one murderer endorsing another murderer

    Obama a murderer?

    Anyone that supports a woman's right to choose to kill her child is a murderer...

    You can see the Democratic party has no respect for life.. look at their platform...

    So what do you expect?

    Uncle Teddy is a prime example of the lowlife Democrat.

    Do you really think that people convicted of manslaughter spend 40 years in prison?

    I was raised in Arkansas and now live in Oklahoma.....and in these 2 states...yes, absolutely. We have folks doing ten years for DUI, not paying child support and writing bad checks. I know a guy doing 25 years for possesion of stolen property...just one ring.

    Yes, 40 years is not uncommon here for homocide.

    I'm Not in Need of Professional Help, but....

    I'm not the one in need of professional help Petra...but, you, on the other hand may need to repent for your name calling attack on my right of free speech. You have your right to your opinion, brother, and SO DO I...and that does not mean I need help, and it surely doesn't mean that my BB name deserved to be treated with animosity.

    You, will be in my prayers, because it is YOU, who needs some anger management assistance.:praying:

    Manslaughter is not homicide. I work with one man who committed manslaughter some years ago and spent less than 10 years in prison. Now if it is someone's second or third prison sentence, 40 years would not be out of the question, but a first-time offender who commits vehicular manslaughter will not serve anywhere near 40 years.

    I think you site this number because of your dislike for Ted Kennedy.

    Is Your Co-worker a....

    The truth is, regardless of how much time we would have got for killing Mary Jo, if anyone of us on the BB had did this crime, we would have also did the time!

    It was money and big politics that saved Teddy, and that is the reason I wrote this post. Mary Jo should never be forgotten simply because of the manner in which her killer avoided ANY and ALL responsibility.

    One other thing to consider, as tragic as this was, Mary Jo should have never hung out with the wrong crowd. There are always consequenses to be paid for making bad decisions Mary Jo paid with her life Ted Kennedy stands to risk paying for this by forfieting his eternal soul not only for this but for other things as well.
    A new generation will soon come in behind us and this will be forgotten so this will do anybody little good to dwell on the past.
    So repent mr. righteousdude and get out of your rut, God wants us to move forward .
