THE DREAM LIVES ON BUT NOT FOR EVERYONE,

TED KENNEDY!

Ted Kennedy gave an eloquent speech last night at the Democratic National Convention speaking of passing the torch to the next generation of Americans and he ended his speech with the words “The Dream Lives On” but not the dreams of Mary Jo Kopechne who Ted Kennedy killed in a car accident while under the influence of alcohol.

 

The Kennedys have brought into the lives of Americans a lot of joy and a lot of tragedy.

 

Let’s stop elevating onto a pedestal people like Ted Kennedy who is nothing like his brothers and accept the fact he killed a woman and got away with it and now expect us to respect him!

I have to agree with you on this one. Mary Jo Kopechne left the party at 11:15 p.m. with Kennedy after he allegedly offered to drive her to catch the last ferry back to the Katama Shores Motor Inn in Edgartown where she was staying. (According to Kennedy, they left the party at 11:15 p.m. to catch the last ferry of the night -- at midnight.) Kennedy stated, on his way to the ferry crossing back to Edgartown, that he accidentally turned right onto Dike Road - a dirt road - instead of bearing sharply left on Main Street (Chappaquiddick Rd), which was a paved road. After proceeding one-half mile, he descended a hill and came upon a narrow bridge set obliquely to the unlit road. Kennedy drove the 1967 Oldsmobile Delmont 88 belonging to him, off the side of Dyke Bridge, and the car overturned into Poucha Pond, a fairly narrow tidal body of water. A Reader's Digest investigation estimated that the car was traveling at about 35 miles per hour when it left the bridge.

 

John Farrar, the diver who retrieved Kopechne's body early the following morning, stated Kopechne was in a position suggesting she had been breathing from a pocket of air trapped in the back-seat wheel well and had suffocated and not drowned, which implied that had Kennedy contacted authorities immediately, rescuers may have saved her life. However, since Kopechne's parents' lawyer, Joseph Flanagan, filed a petition barring an autopsy, the cause of death was never medically confirmed. When the car was recovered, all the doors were locked and three of the windows were either open or smashed in.

 

Read the FBI's Chappaquiddick files.
