What are you talking about? He turned himself in, was charged with what our legal system deemed appropriate, and was tried and sentenced. Admit that he wanted her to die? I don't know what crystal ball you are using, but I doubt seriously that it allows you to see into the heart and mind of Ted Kennedy, and pronounce what he wants and doesn't want in any circumstance.
And as far as William Kennedy Smith is concerned, again, your problem is with the legal system, not the person. If you feel that he was unfairly acquitted, you need to spend your time attempting to correct the inequities in the legal system, not berating those who have used the inherent loopholes.
