Here is nothing new, a Kennedy getting preferential treatment in the middle of the night. Congressman Patrick Kennedy the son of Sen Ted Kennedy, you remember Ted, he is the one who was responsible for the death of that young girl years ago. If you recall, he left her to drown and went on home, and received no punishment, while her parents were left to grieve forever. Ted Kennedy has not let that slow him down through the years though, as there is a list of alcohol related stories concerning his behavior. Well it seems his son is following in his footsteps. The other night Patrick Kennedy was seen driving erratically around the Capitol building in the middle of the night. He was disoriented and believed he had to get to the Capitol to place a vote at 2:30 in the morning! He claims it was an adverse reaction to stomach medicine he had been prescribed. Sure!

Here is the shame of it all, the Capitol police did not administer a breathalyzer. They simply parked his car and drove him home, at the orders of an officer of higher rank than the ones on the scene. Here is a quote you will find interesting;

"Louis P. Cannon, president of the Washington chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police, who was not on the scene, said the congressman had appeared intoxicated when he crashed his Ford Mustang into a barrier on Capitol Hill.

"The officers on the scene, it is my understanding, smelled alcohol. And based on his demeanor and their experience, believed him to be intoxicated," Cannon told CBS News.

Cannon also says officers at the scene were instructed by an official "above the rank of patrolman" to take Kennedy home."

I guess it will take someone else being killed due to the privilege given the Kennedy's for people to wake up to the reality that is their lifestyle and how it preys on the public they claim to serve. One thing we know for sure is that all of us will stand in front of a Holy and Righteous God for judgment, and there will be no buying your way out, nor will your families connection do you any good. The only way to pass this judgment is through the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, a truth we pray all the Kennedy's would come to know in their hearts!
