Does anyone know why Ayers and Dohrn weren't prosecuted?

It was decided that evidence was improperly gathered and therefore inadmissible in a trial. He paid a fine($30,000?), no doubt with his father's money.

This was a common head-trip perpetrated by anarchists and radical leftists. The spiel was that women had to “get over” their ideas of self and property - and similar such anti-establishment, anti-patriarchal, and anti-capitalist hangups.

“It’s too bad that Ayers himself didn’t blow up real good...”

He apparently was too much of a coward to make the bombs himself. That is why he had his girlfriend at the time, Diana Oughton, do it which led to her death (but not his unfortunately).
