★ Kennedy, Robert Francis

34,390.  And a boy came down with her.  He was about twenty-three years old, and he was Mexican-American – I can remember them because I’m Mexican-American.  Sandra Serrano

34,391.  I want to talk to you like a brother.  Look, I presume, I don’t know what religion you are, I’m Catholic, Are you Catholic? ... Right OK here’s the thing.  You’re an intelligent young girl.  You know that for some reason this was made up.  So, what, here’s what you’ve got to think about right now is that I think you owe it to Senator Kennedy, the late Senator Kennedy, to come forth being a woman about this.  If he and you don’t know and I don’t know whether he’s a witness right now in this room watching what we’re doing in here.  Don’t shame his death by keeping this thing up.  I have compassion for you.  I want to know why.  I want to know why you did what you did.  This is a very serious thing ... Are you afraid right now, Sandy?  Sergeant Enrico Hernandes LAPD, mysteriously recalled from overseas visit, harassing witness Sandra Serrano; interrogation survived culling of evidence

 

 

34,392.  These are lies.  This story is a lie.  This didn’t happen.  No, it didn’t happen.  LAPD interrogation of Sandra Serrano 

 

 

34,393.  Bobby had just made a speech and we were getting ready to go some place else but, somehow or another, Bobby jumped off the back of the stage and everyone was out of position and by the time we caught up with him when shots rang out.  We were running to see we could stop all the violence that was going on and then we saw Sirhan with the gun so I went and pulled him up on the stage and then up on a table.

 

George Plimpton had been struggling with the gun hand and I just wrenched it out of Sirhan’s hand and put it in my pocket.  Later on Rafer Johnson asked me if I had it and I gave it to him.  Rosey Grier, Kennedy’s friend & bodyguard

 

 

34,394.  I knew immediately it was a .22, a small caliber, so I hoped it wouldn't be so bad, but then I saw the hole in the Senator's head, and I knew.  Agent William Barry

 

 

34,395.  What follows is more than the story of a complex conspiracy.  It is also a portrait of law enforcement at its worse.  This crime was covered up more by the Los Angeles Police and District Attorney’s Office than by the conspirators.  The trail of suppressed or destroyed evidence and intimidated witnesses is a long one.  Philip H Melanson, The Robert F Kennedy Assassination: New Revelations on the Conspiracy and Cover-Up

 

 

34,396.  To date there have been four witnesses whose accounts seem credible to me, who have talked about seeing a man in plain clothes with a gun in the pantry.  And three of those four witnesses allege that such a gun was fired in proximity to Kennedy.  Dr Philip Melanson, RFK Assassination Archives

 

 

34,397.  Here we have four shots in the centre of Kennedy’s clothing.  Five other people got shot – that’s nine.  Sirhan had an eight-shot revolver.  Dr Robert Joling, forensic expert

 

 

34,398.  The trajectory of the bullets would indicate that Senator Kennedy was shot from behind.   Dr Robert Joling

 

 

34,399.  I was standing behind Kennedy as he was taking his assigned route into the kitchen.  A Caucasian gentleman stepped out and fired.  The security guard hit Kennedy in all three times.  So Kennedy slumped to the floor.  And the security guard fired back.  As I saw the man who had shot Kennedy in the leg before they could get him it looked like to me he shot a woman and he shot two other men.  They then proceeded to carry Kennedy into the kitchen and I don‘t know how his condition is now.  Don Schulman, male witness

 

 

34,400.  He shot, and just then the guard who was standing behind Kennedy took out his gun and he fired also.  The next thing I knew is that Kennedy was shot three times.  Don Schulman

 

 

34,401.  I was in the pantryway following the senator ... We were packed in there like sardines.  The lights and cameras and people and a lot of excitement ... Another man, I think it was the Maitra d' walked up and took his hand.  As we were slowly pushed forward, another man stepped out and he shot; just then the guard who was standing behind Kennedy took out his gun and he fired also.  The next thing I knew is that Kennedy was shot three times ... He [Sirhan] was three to five feet.  He [the assassin] was standing directly to the side and back of Kennedy.  He was standing on the right-hand side.  I told this story to several different people including several police authorities right after it happened.  I insisted the Senator was shot three times ... I also told them the guard pulled out the gun ... But the things that I did see I’m sure about.  And that is Kennedy being shot three times.  The guard definitely pulled out his gun and fired.  Don Schulman

 

 

34,402.  The bullet which killed Kennedy it was an inch away from his head.  This bullet didn’t come from Sirhan.  Did not come from Sirhan because he never got that close.  Karl Uecker, witness

 

 

34,403.  Witnesses said they saw another gun.  The police department never picked up the guard’s gun.  Never picked up any other gun in that room that night.  Paul Schrade, Kennedy staff member

 

 

34,404.  As Sirhan Sirhan stepped out and fired at the Senator, the Senator as he was going down, I saw many guns being pulled out.  And one gun was pulled out by a security guard and it was fired.  And that’s what I saw.  Male witness

 

 

34,405.  Sirhan Sirhan was out of position and out of range and therefore could not have shot Kennedy.  Lawrence Teeter, Sirhan’s lawyer

 

 

34,406.  An armed security guard with strong anti-Kennedy views admitted that he was standing directly in contact with the Senator to the rear, that he dropped down when the shooting began and that he then pulled his gun.  One witness ignored by police claimed he saw the guard fire.  The guard’s weapon was never checked.  Meanwhile, the one person who photographed the assassination, Jamie Scott Enyart, was tackled and arrested at gun point.  His camera was seized by police, and his photographs have never been recovered.  Los Angeles Police secretly burned 2,410 assassination-related photographs in a county hospital incinerator long before Sirhan’s trial.  A Los Angeles jury later awarded Enyart a substantial verdict for the loss of his photographs.  Lawrence Teeter

 

 

34,407.  I was notified by the California state archives that my photographs along with two thousand four hundred other pieces of evidence had been destroyed by the LAPD two weeks before Sirhan’s trial.  Scott Enyart

 

 

34,408.  I arrived at the hotel, and there was mass confusion.  I got up on the parking lot, and there were people running in all directions.

 

Right away, an older Jewish couple ran up to me, and they were hysterical.  I asked them, ‘What happened?’  The woman said that they were coming out of the Ambassador Hotel by the Embassy Room, when a young couple in their late teens or early twenties, well dressed, came running past them.  They were in a state of glee.  They were very happy, shouting, ‘We shot him!  We shot him!’  The older woman asked, ‘Who did you shoot?’  The girl said, ‘Kennedy, we shot him!  We killed him!’

 

… This put this old Jewish woman into hysterics.  She was still in hysterics at the time I talked to her.  The one thing I learned during my many years in the police department is that remarks that are made spontaneously are seldom coloured by people’s imagination.  These were spontaneous remarks from this couple.  As far as I was concerned, that was the most valid description available.  Sergeant Paul Sharaga to author Dan Moldea
