February 25, 1969 - Los Angeles, California: A small part of
several pieces of copy introduced
in evidence 2/25 at the Sirhan B. Sirhan trial which is a
reproduction of Sirhan's diary, was the
cause of a "blow up" by the defendant who shouted that he wanted to
plead guilty. In the judges
chamber, Sirhan said, "I would rather plead guilty-than have people
think I am getting a fair trial.
The defendant was later calmed down.
