Oh, where do we begin in the lessons to be learned from John Edward Kennedy Jr.'s guilty plea? This week, Kennedy pleaded guilty to the murder of William A. Bassett, who was a science teacher and faculty dean at St. Paul's School. The incident happened in February at the Towson Town Center. Kennedy was the one who used a 20-gauge shotgun to kill Bassett. Kennedy's crime partner, Javon Clark, drove the getaway vehicle. My guess is Kennedy, 19, entered his plea to escape the death penalty.
