Episode details

In January of 2022, California Gov. Gavin Newsom rejected and denied the parole of Sirhan Sirhan, the man accused and convicted of assassinating Robert F. Kennedy at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles back in 1968. Gov. Newsom’s decision directly contradicts a California parole panel’s official recommendation that Sirhan, now 77 years old, be granted freedom after spending more than 50 years behind bars.

In his official denial of parole, the California Governor explained his decision writing…

“Mr. Sirhan’s assassination of Senator Kennedy is among the most notorious crimes in American history … I have concluded that he is unsuitable for parole because he poses a current threat to public safety. After decades in prison, Mr. Sirhan has failed to address the deficiencies that led him to assassinate Senator Kennedy. Mr. Sirhan lacks the insight that would prevent him from making the same types of dangerous decisions he made in the past.”

In response to Gov. Newsom’s decision, Angela Berry, a lawyer for Mr. Sirhan, said in a statement…

“Not an iota of evidence exists to suggest Mr. Sirhan is still a danger to society,”

One of the many people fighting on behalf of Sirhan Sirhan is Jen Abreu, the Executive Director of Redemption Row California. She recently joined Gov. Jesse Ventura to delve into the bizarre and often tragic case of Sirhan Sirhan. A man who many researches and historians now believe was not the “lone nut” gunman the U.S. Government and Mainstream Media declared he was.

In this podcast, Gov. Ventura and Ms. Abreu discuss Gov. Gavin Newsom’s denying of Sirhan’s parole, the conspiracies surrounding the assassination and whether Sirhan represents a current threat to society.
