It probably isn’t kosher to talk bad of the dead, but it’s not often that the mainstream media eulogizes and praises dead murderers.
Ted Kennedy didn’t just murder Mary Jo Kopechne. He left her in a car that was submerged and overturned in less than 5 feet of water. The coroners said that she probably lived for about 3 hours by breathing the air that was left in the car, but she couldn’t extricate herself from the back seat. Kennedy didn’t call emergency. He didn’t call the police. He never tried to save her life. There was a house less than 150 ft away from the “accident” with it’s porch lights on. He left her to die an excruciating death by suffocation.
This may be speculation but pretty much everyone knows that Kennedy was drunk driving and was taking Mary Jo down to the beach for a tryst. He didn’t report the accident because he didn’t want to get charged with DUI.He then tried to set up an fake alibi and he begged his lawyers to go along with a story that she was driving and he wasn’t there. I can’t think of any more cowardly of acts in American History. Hopefully, Ted met Mary Jo, first, when he got to wherever he was going when he croaked. Good riddance.
