Finally, Justice For Mary Jo Kopechne

7/18/09 - 40 years ago, on July 18, 1969, a car driven by Ted Kennedy veered off a bridge on Chappaquiddick Island and into the waters near Martha's Vineyard ... killing his traveling companion, Mary Jo Kopechne, 28, who was trapped in the overturned vehicle and drowned.

Kennedy did not contact police until the next day. He later pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of an accident, and was given a two-month suspended jail sentence.

Hey, Patrick, can we drive YOU over a bridge? That would be considered service to the nation

I don't think "Justice" is the right word. He got to live a full life in spite of the fact that her's was ended early due to his inaction to save her.
