No Parole for Sirhan

After all these years, Sirhan still seems to believe that the heinous crime of murder makes a man a "hero," to quote his fears for his useless life if he is forced into a general prison population.

It is strange that our society provides a vicious murderer with more food and protection than hundreds of our citizens living homeless, hungry and unprotected on the streets.

It would be well for Sirhan to remember that there are thousands of us, outside those protective walls, who are still, "mad and sad," that he, Sirhan, made a "name" for himself and continues to live on as a "hero"!
