San Francisco -- Eight men were arrested Tuesday in the 1971 killing of a San Francisco police officer that authorities say was part of a black power group's five-year effort to attack and kill law enforcement officers in San Francisco and New York.
Police said all eight are believed to be former members of the Black Liberation Army, a violent offshoot of the Black Panther Party. The Aug. 29, 1971 shooting death of Sgt. John V. Young, 51, at a San Francisco police station was one in a series of attacks by BLA members on law enforcement officials on both coasts, police said.
The attacks, carried out between 1968 and 1973, also included the bombing of a police funeral in San Francisco and the slayings of two New York City police officers, as well as three armed bank robberies, police said.
Seven of the men were charged with murder and conspiracy.
. . . The investigation of the BLA killing spree was reopened in 1999 after "advances in forensic science led to the discovery of new evidence in one of the unsolved cases," according to a news release from the San Francisco Police Department. No further details were given.

HILLARY CLINTON'S BIGGEST COVER-UPS
Defending The Black Panthers
She moved on to Yale Law School in 1969, which was a hotbed of activity on behalf of the violently racist Black Panther organization. She writes that, The world and its realities came crashing down on Yale in April 1970, when eight Black Panthers, including party leader Bobby Seale, were put on trial for murder in New Haven. Thousands of angry protesters, convinced the Panthers had been set up by the FBI and government prosecutors, swarmed into the city. Demonstrations broke out in and around campus. The campus was bracing for a huge May Day rally to support the Panthers when I learned, late on the night of April 27, that the International Law Library, which was in the basement of the law school, was on fire. Horrified, I rushed to join a bucket brigade of faculty, staff and students to put out the fire and to rescue books damaged by flames and water.
So Living History portrays Hillary as someone who didnt participate in the pro-Panther demonstrations but just tried to save some books from a fire.
Former sixties radical David Horowitz says that both Hillary Rodham and Bill Lann Lee, who later became President Clintons head of the U.S. Justice Departments Civil Rights Division, helped organize the pro-Panther demonstrations at Yale. Others sympathetic to Hillary contend that she was merely among a group of law students who monitored the trial on behalf of the ACLU, which was concerned that law enforcement was violating the civil liberties of members of the party. But Hillary says nothing in her book about even this role.
What is not in dispute is that she served on the Board of Editors of the Yale Review of Law and Social Action, a progressive alternative to the schools traditional review, and that its fall 1970 issue was devoted to the trial and glorifying the Panthers.
The Red Lawyer
During the summer of 1971, Mrs. Clinton writes in her book, she was a law clerk at the Oakland firm of Treuhaft, Walker and Burnstein. I spent most of my time working for Mal Burnstein researching, writing legal motions and briefs for a child custody case, she said. In fact, however, the public record shows that Clinton worked for Robert Treuhaft, a member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) and Harvard-trained lawyer for the party.
Citing public sources, Peter Flahertys book, The First Lady (Vital Issues Press, 1996), says that Hillary was recommended to Treuhaft by some of her professors at Yale. She was looking for a movement law firm to work at for the summer. As it turns out, Hillary would continue her association and support of the Black Panther cause while working as a law clerk for Treuhaft. Flaherty notes that Treuhaft told Herb Caen of the San Francisco Examiner, That was the time we were representing the Black Panthers, and she worked on that case.
CLIFF'S NOTES By Cliff Kincaid
THIS IS THE SECOND OF TWO AIM REPORTS ANALYZING AND EXPOSING the lies in Hillary Clintons book, Living History. Most have focused on her transparent lies about when she learned of her husbands affair with Monica Lewinsky. Far more important is how Senator Clinton, a possible presidential candidate with a love of money and power, has covered up her Marxist roots. Hillary underwent an ideological transformation during the heyday of the New Left on campus that she doesnt want to talk about. CNN Crossfire co-host Tucker Carlson made headlines by losing a bet that he would eat his shoes if Hillarys book sold a million copies. Hillary then presented him with a big shoe. Our bet is the media will continue to let Mrs. Clinton off the hook about her relationship with communist lawyer Robert Treuhaft, the Black Panthers, and the New World Foundation. I hope we lose the bet. We suggest writing Carlson about pinning Hillary down on these critical matters.
Accuracy In Media
Paging David Horowitz... Mr. Horowitz, please pick up a white courtesy phone. David Horowitz, please pick up a white courtesy phone.
Disgusting. Now the left will rush to their aid.
That was, sadly, my first thought.
Swift Boat...Tape 1 (of 10,256) roll.....Action...
I think the East Bay Express did a story on a few of these guys a couple of months back.None of them were college teachers.Most were working class and/or drifted around after their revolution disintegrated.
One must presume that it would have been hard for any of these guys to sleep at night for two reasons.
One,thinking the cops would find them eventually and,hopefully, because their conscience haunted them in their dreams at night.
Better late than never...
I wonder how many of these murderers are college professors...
Snopes lists this as a hoax...
Definitely must be kep going. Front page news on NYC's number 1 news station:
Arrests Made in '71 Cop Slay
A Queens man was one of eight men arrested Tuesday in connection with the 1971 killing of a San Francisco police officer that authorities say was part of a black power group's five-year effort to attack and kill law enforcement officers in San Francisco and New York. The attacks, carried out between 1968 and 1973, also included the bombing of a police funeral in San Fran and the slayings of two NYPD officers (pictured)......
Maybe, but Snopes has an agenda of its own.
Any chance they are going to arrest Bill Ayers and his slut wife (she used sex to recruit new members to the Weathermen) Bernadine Dorn for their bombing activities with the Weathermen? The thought of them being drug out of the Ivy League schools they teach at in handcuffs is already making my day a lot better. Apparently there are still some people (on the subject of the Panthers) who think they were somehow fighting the man however, Newton's first stay in prison was for beating a 17 year old BLACK hooker to death. I recommend a book called "In the Shadow of the Panther" - it tells it the way it really was.
Snopes aint always right. They tend to shade things a lot too.
Good. So when are they going to arrest the remaining living members of the Circle of Six for the murder of NYPD Officer Phillip Cardillo back in 1972?
Three members of the circle of six:
New York City Mayor John Lindsey
Commissioner Benjamin Ward
Congressman Charles Rangel
I think today's events must make Ayers and Dohrn VERY nervous.
Both were investigated,along with other Weathermen, for the Park Station bombing in Febuary,1970,when one SFPD officer was killed.
Yes,read Shadow of the Panther.Very well researched.Also read Flores Forbes,Will You Die For Me.Forbes is one of the Panthers thought by Betty Van Patter's daughter to have killed her mom for revealing Panther bookeeping fraud.
I have been meaning to read that book, thanks. It was Betty Van Patter's murder that made David Horowitz come to his senses and leave the lunatic fringe. I am sure Frontpage Magazine.org will be covering this story tomorrow.
Forbes really dishes out the dirt on Huey and his megalomaina as the drugs captured him lock,stock and barrel.
Of course,in many ways its a self serving book since Forbes omits the Van Patter case and his alleged role in it.
I can already see what the trial is going to be like. The New Black Panther party will probably stand watch outside with shotguns, threatening WWIII if the eight are found guilty.
Was this one of those ZEBRA Killings???
The early 1970's were also the years of the so-called Zebra murders.
These miscreants were a part of the so called Black Liberation Army. They were a group of Marxist/anarchists that formed when the Black Panthers broke up. The BLA also worked with the Weather Underground on a couple of projects which left security guards and police officers dead.
The BLA were nasty bunch of SOBs who had little regard for human life. One can only hope they get the justice they deserve but already, civil rights groups are starting their crap because they claim the poor cop killers weren't treated nice back in 1971.
* National Coalition to Protect Political Freedom : ... the National Coalition to Protect Political Freedom, or NCPPF, ... was founded in the 1960s to provide legal support to New Left terrorists in the Weather Underground, the Puerto Rican FALN and the Black Liberation Army, and which national-security specialists say was revived to push for Islamist terrorist causes.--------------"Undermining war on terror : Muslim groups weakening fed laws under guise of protecting civil liberties," World Net Daily, March 10, 2003

Who's the AMC?
* AMC aka American Muslim Council : The American Muslim Council: The American Muslim Council is a non-profit socio-political organization established in 1990, to serve the interests of the Muslim community in the United States. AMCs national leadership includes Muslim community leaders from across the United States. ---- AMC website
[Abdel al-Rahman] Haggag said he believed Osama bin Laden routinely funneled $5,000 payments to [1993 WTC bomb conspirator] Rahman through [Abdulrahman] Amoudi and his organization, the American Muslim Council. Bin Laden's funds were allegedly used to pay Rahman's rent and phone bills in New Jersey and Brooklyn, a source said. ---------http://www.nypost.com/news/worldnews/6954.htm
Who is associated with the AMC?
Abdurahman Alamoudi : Militant activist Abdurahman Alamoudi, [is] a founder and longtime leader of the American Muslim Council (AMC) -- see "Domestic Front in the War on Terror," December 17, 2001).
What's Abdulrahman Alamoudi known for doing?
Journalist Mary Jacoby, who reports on domestic Islamist networks for the [liberal rag] St. Petersburg (Fla.) Times, tells Insight that [Abdul Rahman] Alamoudi spearheaded efforts to install radical Muslim chaplains inside the U.S. Armed Forces and the prison system. In 1993, through his American Muslim Council (AMC), he spun off the American Muslim Armed Forces and Veterans Affairs Council, one of three Islamic organizations to certify chaplains for the military. -------- "Alamoudi Received Cash From Libyan 'Jihad Fund'," J. Michael Waller , Insight Magazine, Oct. 13, 2003
But U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Special Agent Brett Gentrup said in court documents yesterday the feds suspect Amoudi might have been funneling the $340,000 to terror groups operating in Syria, such as Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
"Gentrup also said a transcript had been uncovered in which Amoudi criticized al Qaeda's selection of terror targets. Amoudi said too many Muslims were killed in attacks such as the 1998 Kenyan embassy bombing, the court documents claimed. "I prefer to hit a Zionist target in America or Europe or elsewhere," Amoudi said, according to the court documents.

ANSWER... hmmm. Aren't they backed by George Soros?
And let's not forget AMC's connection to this group:
Sudanese National Islamic Front
APRIL 1994 : (AMC DEFENDS THE SUDANESE NATIONAL ISLAMIC FRONT) In its April 1994 newsletter, AMC defended the ruling Sudanese National Islamic Front, which the State Department designated as a terrorist group, arguing that the Khartoum regime was "not engaged in terrorist activities and is not harboring terrorists." --------"Undermining war on terror : Muslim groups weakening fed laws under guise of protecting civil liberties," World Net Daily, March 10, 2003-"Undermining war on terror : Muslim groups weakening fed laws under guise of protecting civil liberties," World Net Daily, March 10, 2003
What's the big deal about the Sudanese National Islamic Front?
It's headed by Hassan al Tourabi, the middleman between Iraq and al Qaeda:
1990s : (SUDAN : AL-TOURABI ARRANGES FOR BIN LADEN TO MEET IRAQI AGENT AL-HIJAZI, WHO WOULD EVENTUALLY HEAD IRAQI INTELLIGENCE) During the early 1990s, Sudans Sheikh Hassan al-Tourabi of the Islamic National Front arranged meetings between bin Laden and Iraqi Intelligence officials. Bin Laden met with Faruq al-Hijazi, an Iraqi intelligence agent in the Sudan who would later head Iraqi intelligence for Saddam Hussein. There would be later meetings as well in 1994 and 1995.- Findlaw, Ashton, et al. v. al Qaeda
Of course there is no connection between Iraq and al Qaeda according to Pelosi and friends, just as there is no connection between Hillary Clinton, the AMC, Alamoudi and the Black Panthers.
1993 : (1993 IRAQI DOCUMENT -FOUND IN MARCH 2004 - LISTS OSAMA BIN LADEN AS A COLLABORATOR WITH THE IRAQI IIS AND STATES THAT HE IS IN GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH THE IRAQI IIS SECTION IN SYRIA ) Washington Times Pentagon correspondents Bill Gertz and Rowan Scarborough reported March 19  on a 20-page, Arabic-language document from the Iraqi Intelligence Service. Stamped "top secret," it lists IIS "collaborators," among them, "the Saudi Osama bin Laden." It says he is a "Saudi businessman and is in charge of the Saudi opposition in Afghanistan...And he is in good relationship with our section in Syria." Signed "Jabar," the 1993 record seemed authentic to an American official who reviewed it.-- "Clarkes Not Blind; Even the Dems favorite grandstander sees the Saddam-9/11 link.," By Deroy Murdock, National Review Online , March 26, 2004, 8:58 a.m., http://www.nationalreview.com/murdock/murdock200403260858.asp See also : The Mother of All Connections (New evidence of collaboration between Saddam's Iraq and al Qaeda) The Weekly Standard
No connections at all.
Isn't this the crazy group that kidnapped Patty Hearst?
Yes there, under United for Peace and Justice.
