  1. The country needs more people like this kid.

    A community college student in Massachusetts faces possible disciplinary action for shouting "Remember Chappaquiddick!" during an on-campus speech by Democrat Sen. Edward Kennedy.

    Paul Trost, 20, a student at Massasoit Community College in Brockton, Mass., says he was upset by an introduction of Kennedy given by Rep. Stephen Lynch, D-Mass., in which the congressman noted how the long-time senator overcame hardship in life on his way to success.

    Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass.

    "Lynch said Kennedy had overcome such adversity to get to the place he was, and that's a bunch of bull," Trost said of the introduction, which occurred in the school's student center Tuesday morning.

    Just as Kennedy began speaking, Trost was walking out of the room when he shouted, "Remember Chappaquiddick!"

    "Most of the crowd gasped," Trost said. "Then I walked out of the student center."

    The student says a campus police officer went outside and stopped him. He also saw some state troopers go outside, the type who accompany Kennedy around the state to provide security.

    Trost says the cop took down his information and told him he would be hearing from school officials about disciplinary action. A spokesman with the campus police verified the incident but stressed that Trost was not arrested.

    The student said one of his teachers confronted him after a class about the Chappaquiddick issue.

    "One of my teachers called me ignorant and told me this was an embarrassment to the school," Trost told WND. "She said to me, 'Can't you forgive him after all these years?' And I said, 'No, he killed somebody.'

    "If it had been me or any other person, we'd be in jail," Trost says he told his instructor.

    Referring to his two-word shout, Trost said, "I did it because I know about Kennedy's past. I know what happened at Chappaquiddick.

    "I wanted to send a message to him that my generation still knows about it. We haven't forgotten about it."

    Mary Jo Kopechne

    Trost said he was satisfied to know that students on campus were talking about the Chappaquiddick incident later in the day – some of whom, in fact, were not familiar with it.

    In 1969, Kennedy was driving a car that went off a bridge on Chappaquiddick Island, off the coast of Martha's Vineyard, Mass. His passenger, Mary Jo Kopechne, was killed after the car landed upside down in the water. No autopsy was ever performed to determine her exact cause of death.

    At the time, Kennedy claimed he tried several times to swim down to reach Kopechne to no avail. He came under fire for not reporting the incident to authorities until the next morning. In the interim he reportedly made an effort to call a family legal adviser.

    "I haven't yet found out what's going to happen to me," Trost said, referring to the warning from campus police.

    and counting
  4. typical. Liberals make a bigger stink about a DUI by president Bush than the attempted cover up of a death by one of their poster boys.

  5. (Okay, she ran a stop sign, killed HER BOYFRIEND, and was not ticketed, nor charged for vehicular manslaughter.....and Laura Bush has something close to an 80% approval rating...about twice as her DUI husband. None of this makes Kennedy innocent, it does however demonstrate how the wealthy and powerful, and their children are given special privilege.)

    Report: Laura Bush in 1963 Car Wreck

    By JIM VERTUNO, Associated Press Writer

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - At 17, Laura Bush ran a stop sign and crashed into another car, killing her boyfriend who was driving it, according to an accident report released to The Associated Press on Wednesday.

    Mrs. Bush is the wife of Republican presidential nominee-to-be George W. Bush (news - web sites), the Texas governor.

    ``It was a very tragic accident that deeply affected the families and was very painful for all involved, including the community at large,'' said her spokesman, Andrew Malcolm. ``To this day, Mrs. Bush remains unable to talk about it.''

    Mrs. Bush did say in March, when asked at a campaign stop about the crash, ``I know this as an adult, and even more as a parent, it was crushing ... for the family involved and for me as well.''

    According to the two-page accident report released Wednesday by the city of Midland, Laura Welch was driving her Chevrolet sedan on a clear night shortly after 8 p.m. on Nov. 6, 1963, when she drove into an intersection and struck a Corvair sedan driven by 17-year-old Michael Douglas.

    Although previous news accounts have reported Douglas was thrown from the car and broke his neck, those details were not in the report.

    The speed of Laura Bush's car was illegible on the report. The speed limit for the road was 55.

    Neither driver was drinking, the police report said.

    Laura Bush and her passenger, Judy Dykes, also 17, were taken to a hospital and treated for minor injuries, according to an accident account printed at the time in the Midland Reporter-Telegram.

    The police report indicates no charges were filed. That section of the report was left blank.

    ``As far as we know, no charges were filed,'' said Midland city attorney Keith Stretcher. ``I don't think it's unusual that charges weren't filed.''

    The police report was released after an open records request was submitted to Midland officials in March. City officials had declined to release the records because the victims were under 18.
  6. It's driving records you want? It's driving records you'll get. Comparing Mrs. Bush to Kennedy??? YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!

    - On March 14, 1958, Deputy Sheriff Thomas Whitten had been on routine highway patrol outside Charlottesville, Virginia, when an Oldsmobile convertible ran a red light, sped off, then cut its tail lights to elude pursuit. A license check revealed the car belonged to Edward M. Kennedy, a 26-year-old law student attending the University of Virginia. Kennedy had previously been fined $15 for speeding in March 1957.
    - Whitten was on patrol at the same intersection a week later, he testified, "And here comes the same car. And to my surprise, he did exactly the same thing. He raced through the same red light, cut his lights when he got to the corner and made the right turn." Whitten gave chase. He found the car in a driveway, apparently unoccupied. Looking inside, he discovered the driver, Teddy Kennedy, stretched out on the front seat and hiding. Whitten issued a ticket for "reckless driving; racing with an officer to avoid arrest; and operating a motor vehicle without an operator's license (Mass. registration.)"
    - Kennedy's attorneys were able to win numerous postponements, but eventually he was convicted on all charges and paid a $35 fine. Court officials never filed the mandatory notice of the case in the public docket, however, and Kennedy's name had not appeared on any arrest blotter. Instead, a local reporter discovered the case when he spotted 5 warrants in Kennedy's name in a court cash drawer.

    - Three weeks after his trial, Ted Kennedy was caught speeding again, and still operating without a valid license.

    - In December 1959, Kennedy was stopped again for running a red light and fined $10 and costs. In Whitten's view, "That boy had a heavy foot and a mental block against the color red. He was a careless, reckless driver who didn't seem to have any regard for speed limits or traffic ordinances."

    - The offenses in Virginia had occurred on Ted Kennedy's Massachusetts driver's license, but mysteriously neither the Registry of Motor Vehicles nor the office of probation in Cambridge had any record of the out-of-state convictions. Had it been revealed at the inquest, the Senator's history of negligence and reckless driving would have been further evidence to support a charge of manslaughter in the Chappaquiddick accident.

    - Senator Kennedy's driver's license had expired on February 22, 1969 (nearly 5 months before the accident at Chappaquiddick) and had not been renewed.
    - Although driving with an expired license was only a misdemeanor, it did provide the evidence of negligence needed to prove a manslaughter charge in the death of Mary Jo Kopechne.
    - The license problem was "fixed" by officials at the Registry of Motor Vehicles, under the direction of Registrar Richard McLaughlin, before the legal proceedings began.

  7. It's curious that the other side will send Cheney and Laura Bush to hell - but back Kennedy's much more serious crime... isn't it?
  8. Who exactly is backing Kennedy's crime?

    The point is that that Kennedy, along with Cheney and Bush, got away with their actions because of the social status, or political status.

  9. You are. Go back and compare all your posts with Cheneys/W's/Lauras (crimes) vs. Kennedy's. I believe you'll catch on as to what I'm talking about.
