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...
