Robert F. Kennedy’s assassin granted parole

Published by USC Bedrosian Center on

Jody Armour interviewed by Fox News affiliate KTTV regarding parole decision for Sirhan Sirhan who has been incarcerated for 50 years for the assassination of Senator Robert F. Kennedy. 

Armour believes the push towards prison reform in Los Angeles County will promote racial justice for marginalized groups, and that the Sirhan hearing represents a milestone. “It’s a sign of the times. We’ve been in a debate over the last couple years about what criminal justice should look like and what conception of justice should determine our criminal justice policy, and should it be rooted in retribution, retaliation and revenge or in redemption, restoration and rehabilitation.”?
