Marilyn Buck, radical jailed 25 years for role in deadly Brink's heist, dies in NY at age 62
AP ^ | August 6, 2010 | DAVID B. CARUSO

Posted on 08/07/2010 6:27:55 PM PDT by george76

Marilyn Buck, a violent leftist incarcerated for 25 years for her role in some of the most notorious radical acts of the 1980s, including the bombing of the U.S. Capitol and a deadly armored car heist, has died in Brooklyn. She was 62.

On Oct. 20, 1981, she was part of a group of Weather Underground and Black Liberation Army members who ambushed a Brink's armored car carrying $1.6 million at a mall in Nanuet, N.Y. One guard was killed at the scene. A second was badly wounded. Two police officers were subsequently killed after they pulled over one of the getaway cars.

she helped Black Liberation Army leader Joanne Chesimard, who had been convicted of killing a New Jersey state trooper, escape from prison and flee to Cuba in 1979. Buck also was implicated in another armored car robbery in 1981 in which a guard was killed.

Marilyn is dead. Ayers is a “respected” professor. Obama is in our White House. It’s amazing how differently life can turn out by chance for people who are so similar in character.

Buck discovered leftist politics as a student at the University of California, Berkeley, then joined the Students for a Democratic Society ...with the Black Liberation Army

She died August 3 http://theragblog.blogspot.com/2010/08/mariann-g-wizard-poetpolitical-prisoner.html I wonder what took the AP so long.

Have the Obamas, Ayres, and Dohrn indicated if they will be attending her funeral?

That would be funny to find out where her grave will be located and set one of those up in the middle of the night. The Leftist media prostitutes will be so incensed they’ll talk about it for at least a week.

Obama, Ayers, and Dohrn lived and attended college in the same Manhattan neighborhood when the 1983 Brinks robbery in Nyack took place. Two police officers and a Brinks guard were gunned down by members of the Black Liberation Army and still-active members of the by-then defunct Weather Underground just 22 miles away. The fake IDs used to rent the vehicles in the robbery attempt were traced back to Manhattan and Bernardine Dohrn, and she went to jail for refusing to cooperate with the grand jury and explain her role in the crime.

Barack Obama was then in his early 20s, not eight.

Typical Associated Press: doesn’t even mention Ayers and Dohrn. Remember how the Swift Boat veterans were marginalized because out of the 250 or so of them, a few knew someone who knew someone who knew someone that knew Bush?

Another freedom fighter bights the dust? ( heavy sarc.)

Its hard to mourn a fascist who has aided the killings of LEOs. And thats what she and the Ayers crowd were, fascists, thugs, killers of innocent people who were true Americans, which the killers were not then and are not even to this day.

These are the heroes of the current pretender in the WH.

SHAME ON ALL WHO VOTED FOR HIM!

There is nothing laudatory about the jingoistic life of Marilyn Buck. Better luck in the next world !

Marilyn Buck, a violent leftist incarcerated for 25 years for her role in some of the most notorious radical acts of the 1980s, including the bombing of the U.S. Capitol...

1971 : (WEATHER UNDERGROUND BOMBING OF US CAPITOL & OBAMA'S CHICAGO NEIGHBOR WILLIAM AYERS)

SEPTEMBER 11, 2001 : (NY TIMES PRINTS ARTICLE ON OBAMA'S CHICAGO NEIGHBOR WILLIAM AYERS & THE TERRORIST ORGANIZATION WUO... [ON THE DAY OF THE 9/11 TERROR ATTACKS]) Now he has written a book, "Fugitive Days" (Beacon Press, September). Mr. Ayers, who is 56, calls it a memoir, somewhat coyly perhaps, since he also says some of it is fiction. He writes that he participated in the bombings of New York City Police Headquarters in 1970, of the Capitol building in 1971, the Pentagon in 1972. But Mr. Ayers also seems to want to have it both ways, taking responsibility for daring acts in his youth, then deflecting it.
"Is this, then, the truth?," he writes. "Not exactly. Although it feels entirely honest to me."
But why would someone want to read a memoir parts of which are admittedly not true? Mr. Ayers was asked.
"Obviously, the point is it's a reflection on memory," he answered. "It's true as I remember it."

One guard was killed at the scene. A second was badly wounded. Two police officers were subsequently killed after they pulled over one of the getaway cars.

1981 : (NY : WEATHERMEN TERRORISTS DAVID GILBERT & KATHY BOUDIN ARE INVOLVED IN THE ROBBERY OF A BRINKS ARMORED TRUCK THAT LEAVES 4 PEOPLE DEAD -- See CHESA BOUDIN, AYERS, DOHRN) They [Mr. Ayers and Ms. Dohrn] have also brought up Chesa Boudin, 21, the son of David Gilbert and Kathy Boudin, who are serving prison terms for a 1981 robbery of a Brinks truck in Rockland County, N.Y., that left four people dead. Last month, Ms. Boudin's application for parole was rejected. ---- "No Regrets for a Love Of Explosives ," Dinitia Smith. New York Times. (Late Edition (East Coast)). New York, N.Y.: Sep 11, 2001. pg. E.1
********
.. Mr. Ayers and Ms. Dohrn tried to persuade Ms. Boudin to surrender because she was pregnant. But she refused, and went on to participate in the Brink's robbery. When she was arrested, Ms. Dohrn and Mr. Ayers volunteered to care for Chesa, then 14 months old, and became his legal guardians....
A few months later Ms. Dohrn was called to testify about the robbery. Ms. Dohrn had not seen Ms. Boudin for a year, she said, and knew nothing of it. Ms. Dohrn was asked to give a handwriting sample, and refused, she said, because the F.B.I. already had one in its possession. "I felt grand juries were illegal and coercive," she said. For refusing to testify, she was jailed for seven months, and she and Mr. Ayers married during a furlough.
Once again, Chesa was without a mother. "It was one of the hardest things I did," said Ms. Dohrn of going to jail. ---- "No Regrets for a Love Of Explosives ," Dinitia Smith. New York Times. (Late Edition (East Coast)). New York, N.Y.: Sep 11, 2001. pg. E.1

Now that this woman is dead Bill Ayers can leave the protection of his friends at University of Illinois at Chicago.

The top dog there announced he is retiring and she'll miss him.

I don't think the investigation should be allowed to stop just because this ol'gal didn't rat everybody out. Bill's still there. His friends at UIC know something.

Incredible that she did not die in prison. I’m an NYPDer. The BLA’s MO was to walk up to two cops on the street and start blasting without warning. They targeted black and white officers who were partners. Among the cops murdered were Waverly Jones and Joe Piagentini in one attack and Rocco Laurie and Gregory Foster in another.
When they killed foster and Laurie they pumped bullets into them while they were down. The bullets passed through them, bounced off the sidewalk and went back up into them again. The BLA murders danced in the street after the deed. Foster and Laurie were both Vietnam USMC vets.

Rest of the story.
 
She's a local from right around here (Killeen/Temple Texas area)
 
Not an area conducive for the creation of radical leftist dirtbags.
 
Guess some commie professors made quite an impression on her less-than-stable impressionable mind.

It’s a shame that she lived to such a ripe old age

Please, I'm almost 61. 62 is not a "ripe old age".

But I agree with the general sentiment. Better her career had been nipped in the bud, with extreme prejudice, rather than went on to kill and maim, and then be supported by the taxpayers until she died.

Will flags be orderd to be flown at half staff? Will BHO attend the funeral? Will Professors Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn?

Somewhat out of character for today’s AP to use the phrase “violent leftist”, even when, as in this case, that description is valid. Wonder if this AP writer will be called on the carpet for it.

Maybe he will get called on the carpet for it. I have noticed a change in tone in some of the articles written by the MSM. Obama is falling out of favor with the left, 'and so his history of association with the groups that spawned these POS, is now being used to tag Obama indirectly.

Its definitely an editorial change, IMHO.

Obama is no longer completely the darling of the left.

Why? Obama is revealing his fascist colors too quickly, he has failed to keep them hidden enough to suit the lefts agenda of usurpation of our Republic.They are putting the brakes on for the election in November. This began with the Waters/Rangel ethics charges which has split the Black Caucus, and offended many leftists.

We need to take advantage of the split and make it permanent.

Really? It's a mystery as to why she was released from FEDERAL custody and by whom?
