Douglas Kennedy skates,
did not endanger child: judge

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/20/2012 4:54:11 PM

Douglas Kennedy, a son of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, was acquitted Tuesday of child endangerment and harassment charges stemming from a scuffle in a hospital maternity ward. Kennedy had tried in January to take his newborn son from Northern Westchester Hospital in Mount Kisco. He said he just wanted the 2-day-old boy, Anthony Boru Kennedy, to get some fresh air. However, several nurses objected, saying his request would violate hospital policy. Kennedy tried to leave anyway, and two nurses claimed he hurt them as they blocked his way. Mount Kisco Town Judge John Donohue,

I´m sure after hearing the verdict he told little Anthony "that´s the way we Kennedys do it, don;t ever forget."

That family always skates because so many officials are in awe of them. If you search hard enough, you´ll probably find some connection between the judge and the Kennedys.

Too bad there isn´t a law against behaving like a world class jerk. Any reasonably normal parent could and would have followed hospital procedures to begin with, sought clearance, and avoided the whole nasty situation. And any reasonably normal parent would know without having to be told that such hospital policies are only there for the protection of their babies. The Kennedys do seem to deteriorate ethically and morally with time. These parents owe the nurses, the hospital, and everyone else their selfish and reckless behavior has distressed an apology. They are terrible examples of both citizens and parents.

It was his child. I don´t like the guy or the family, but one of our key values here is that we are responsible for our own children and that the state does not own them. If he wanted to take his child outside, that was his decision unless there was some clear endangerment or abuse. The hospital does not get to decide for us lowly parents what is appropriate.

#15, your wrong, the baby was not discharged yet it was still a patient at the hospital, it is the duty of the nurses to take care of the baby. If something had happened to that baby you can take it to the bank that the Douglas would have sued the hospital, sued the nurses and they would have subsequently lost their license. If the Kennedy´s were so concerned that the little one needed air, then they should have cleared it with the hospital, asked the hospital to discharge the mother and baby. Douglas Kennedy was in the wrong and his actions are deplorable, but I guess in Mass. you get away with things because your a Kennedy.

#15,

Actually, we don´t really own them either, and if we are stupid enough to insist on holding them when we have a raging case of the flu or decide to hold them upside down and swing them back and forth to amuse our buddies in our motorcycle gang or bring in a joint and blow some smoke on the kid so he can have a contact high, the hospital has an obligation to step in, and they will.

No, Douglas Kennedy was probably not going to do any of these things, but there are rules and laws in place to follow, and most new parents have no problem following them when they´re reasonable. I don´t think too many of us would take our scantilly-wrapped day-old babies out in sub-freezing temps.

As for calling this family Shanty Irish, well, the label may grow tiresome, but equally tiresome is the undeserved, mystifying deification of the Kennedys. It might be one reason why they seem to believe they don´t have to obey laws. A couple of them seemed to believe they were above the laws of physics (John Jr. and Michael the tree-skier).

Two drug-smuggling tunnels stretching hundreds of yards across the U.S.-Mexico border, complete with crude railways system to move contraband, have been unearthed by a U.S. task force.

The first tunnel, stretching about 600 yards, was discovered Tuesday. It was described as being equipped with lighting, rails and wooden trusses. Scroll down for video

LOS ANGELES- U.S. federal agents have uncovered two drug-smuggling tunnels underneath the U.S.-Mexico border, both surfacing in San Diego-area warehouses and equipped with rail systems for moving contraband, officials said on Friday. The discovery led to the arrest of a 73-year-old woman accused of running one of the warehouses connected to a drug smuggling operation, according to a joint news release by four federal agencies. The tunnels were discovered as part of a five-month investigation by the so-called San Diego Tunnel Task Force. Federal law enforcement officials said the first tunnel, which connects a warehouse in Tijuana, Mexico, with one

CINCINNATI- A federal judge said Friday that he will strike down Ohio´s voter-approved ban on gay marriage, a move that stops short of forcing Ohio to perform same-sex weddings but will make the state recognize gay couples legally wed elsewhere. Judge Timothy Black announced his intentions in federal court in Cincinnati following final arguments in a lawsuit that challenged the constitutionality of the marriage ban. "I intend to issue a declaration that Ohio´s recognition bans, that have been relied upon to deny legal recognition to same-sex couples validly entered in other states where legal, violates the rights secured by the

Former President George W. Bush on Friday revealed his portraits of world leaders — and the tidbit that Russian President Vladimir Putin thought he had a better dog. Mr. Bush told his daughter, Jenna Bush Hager, a correspondent for the “Today” show, that he had a good relationship with Mr. Putin, but “it became more tense as time went on.” Mr. Bush, who took up painting after his presidency and showed off a new exhibit Friday, said it was clear that Mr. Putin viewed the United States as an enemy, and that the Russian president viewed the world as a

How has former president George W. Bush been spending his time out of office? By painting, of course. We´ve long known of Bush´s exploration of his artistic side. But now we get to see the results. Bush is unveiling more than two dozen portraits of world leaders for an exhibit called "The Art of Leadership: A President´s Personal Diplomacy" at Southern Methodist University. Of his painting, Bush told his daughter Jenna Bush Hager: "There’s a Rembrandt trapped in this body." While neither SMU nor the Bush library will release close-ups of all of the portraits (booooo!), they did send us

192,000 Jobs Added in
March but Wages Fall

The economy created 192,000 jobs in March, down from 197,000 in February and still well below the pace needed to lower underemployment to respectable levels. Those mediocre results are consistent with a broadly underperforming economy. Manufacturing employment lost 1,000 jobs and government stalled. Other than construction, which gained 19,000 employees, most new positions were in lower paying activities like leisure and hospitality, support activities in health care, retail, and temporary business services. Hourly earnings fell, indicating good jobs continue to be scarce. In 2013, GDP growth was only 1.9 percent, thanks to the $200 billion January tax increase and federal

Justice Clarence Thomas’s influence was on full display in the Supreme Court’s landmark decision to strike down a key campaign finance restriction. And it’s just one in a string of cases in which Thomas could be dragging the court toward his way of thinking. Chief Justice John Roberts penned Wednesday’s plurality decision, which eliminates the limit on the total dollar amount an individual may give to political candidates and committees. But Thomas, seen by many as the court’s most conservative justice, wrote a concurring opinion that both represented the decisive vote in the 5-4 decision, and beckoned the justices to

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”
