“MOUNT KISCO — Robert F. Kennedy’s son, Douglas, is facing charges related to an incident in which he clashed with two nurses who tried to stop him taking his newborn son for a walk outside a hospital maternity ward. Kennedy, 44, was charged with misdemeanor harassment and endangering the welfare of a child over the Jan. 7 argument, during which he allegedly grabbed one nurse by the wrist and kicked another in the pelvis” … NY Post
Do the Kennedy men ever run out of fascinating descriptions? I guess we can add Pelvis Kicker to Intern Deflowerer, Secretary Drowner and Dumbell Pilot.
I have some questions about this:
- Who takes an infant out of a hospital bassinet so he can go outside for fresh air? FYI – infants’ immune systems are not fully functional at age 3 days and fresh air positively drips with pathogens. Have a little influenza with your “vigah”, why doncha?
- Who doesn’t know that hospitals have been employing strict measures to limit risk of kidnapping of newborns? This isn’t anything new – it’s been standard practice for decades. And it applies to fathers as well as unrelated baby stealers.
- Although this particular heir to Camelot was arrested for his little stunt, the real crime here in my opinion is that he named this kid Boru. Irish royalty notwithstanding, the boy is in for a lifetime of Sacha Baron Cohen jokes.
- Not a question but a point of interest: “violent shaking of the baby’s head and neck.” My my, Douglas. Also, video from the hospital surveillance cameras at this link.
“While holding the child in his right arm, Kennedy kicked Luciano in the pelvis with his right foot, knocking her backward onto the floor, police said. As he did this, Kennedy fell onto the floor with the baby in his arms. Kennedy then got up and ran “down the stairs with the infant until he was stopped by security and escorted back to the infant’s room,” the police report said. The police report did not say whether the infant was harmed but Kennedy’s lawyer told NBC New York the baby was not injured and slept during the altercation.” … MSNBC.com
At the moment, there’s been no comment from the toothy beam of vigor that is the child’s grandmother.
