Tupac's stepfather, Mutulu Shakur, was involved in the triple murder/Brinks truck robbery. Bill Ayers' wife, Bernardine Dohrn, served jail time for refusing to cooperate in the case. They had robbed the Brinks truck in order to pay for explosives for terrorist attacks. And this was during the 1980s, years after the Weather Underground.
From David Horowitz's FrontPageMag.com/DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
"On October 20, 1981 -- long after the Weather Underground had ceased to exist -- former Underground member Kathy Boudin and her soon-to-be husband, David Gilbert, were accomplices in the robbery of a Brinks armored car in Nyack, New York. In the course of that heist, one Brinks guard and two Nyack police officers were murdered. Also involved in the robbery was Judith Clark, who had served a prison term for her participation in the 'Days of Rage.' Boudin hired attorney Leonard Weinglass, a law partner of her father, to defend her in the case.
Weinglass arranged for a plea bargain whereby Boudin pled guilty to one count of felony murder and robbery, in exchange for a prison sentence of twenty years to life. She was paroled in 2003, however, over strong opposition from New York State police. Gilbert remains in New York's Attica State Prison, having refused to bargain.
In 1985, former Weather Underground members Susan Rosenberg (who also was implicated in the Nyack robbery [Brinks truck robbery/murder]) and Linda Evans were apprehended while transporting 740 pounds of explosives which they both acknowledged were slated for use in additional bombings. Rosenberg was sentenced to 58 years in prison, Evans 40; President Bill Clinton pardoned both women in January 2001."
AMBUSH: THE BRINKS ROBBERY OF 1981
[triple murder involving former Weather Underground, Black Liberation Army and Black Panthers members]
Jeral Wayne Williams (AKA Mutulu Shakur)
[stepfather of murdered rapper Tupac Shakur]
"The armored truck's final stop was the Nanuet National Bank on the second level of the mall. The crew was due to pick up almost $1.6 million dollars in cash from the bank. Inside the truck was an additional several hundred dollars in cash from earlier collections. Pete Paige was assigned to guard his partner as he handled the cash. His partner was assigned to enter the bank, retrieve the moneybags with Paige and place them into the back of the armored vehicle.
Also in the same parking lot that afternoon was a red Chevy van that cruised the area while the guards went inside the mall. The rear and side windows had been covered with plastic so no one could see inside. Inside the van was a man named Mutulu Shakur, 31, already a veteran of several armored car and bank robberies committed in the Bronx, Mt. Vernon, NY and Paramus, NJ. Shakur was an adopted name. His real name, or slave name as he described it, was Jeral Wayne Williams. He was a black nationalist who ran a financially corrupt acupuncture clinic in Lincoln Hospital in New York City, the first such clinic in the Bronx. Williams was an articulate and persuasive individual who recruited many disciples to follow him. Under the banner of black self-determination, he convinced his accomplices that it was up to them to seize funds from legitimate sources and "redistribute" the money to various black causes. With each robbery committed, the gang improved on its methods and became more sophisticated. They studied the reaction of guards and the police. They took the time to learn how police handled and investigated such crimes. Then, they made the appropriate adjustments on the next job.
"David J. Gilbert, 37, rented the vehicle that same day in the Bronx. Gilbert was a long time member of the Weather Underground and a fugitive from the state of Colorado where he faced charges of assault and possession of explosives. The passenger in the front seat of the U Haul was Kathy Boudin [another former Weather Underground member], on the run from the law since the townhouse explosion in 1970. The couple had dropped off their one-year old child with a babysitter in the morning and was waiting for the return of the red van."
"In the back of the red van were Cecilio 'Chui' Ferguson, 35, Samuel Brown AKA Solomon Bouines, 41, Samuel Smith AKA Mtayari Sundiata, 37, and Donald Weems AKA Kuwasi Balagoon, 35. There were others present, but it has never been proven who, or how many. All the men in back of the van were members of a group they called 'The Family.' Most of them had ties to the Black Panthers or the Black Liberation Army, radical political groups that had many violent confrontations with police during the 1970s."
"At approximately 3:55 p.m., Paige, a 24-year Brink's veteran and his partner, Joe Trombino, 48, exited the doors to the Mall rolling out the moneybags on a hand truck. They walked over to the Brink's truck and began to load up the bags onto the rear deck. Simultaneously, the red van pulled up and the rear doors swung open. One of the suspects, armed with a shotgun, ran to the front of the truck and immediately fired two blasts directly at the bulletproof windshield. The guard in the front seat ducked just in time and was unhurt.
Another suspect, wearing a ski mask, opened up with his M-16 automatic rifle before his feet even hit the pavement, striking Paige in the neck, arm and chest. He was killed instantly.
Joe Trombino fired just one shot before he was hit several times in his upper arm and shoulder. The bullets all but severed his arm off his shoulder. "I've got no arm!" he screamed. But Trombino would survive that day, only to perish years later in another terrorist attack at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001."
Good on her.
I guess something of the experience she had in the making of the movie Battleship, being around service men and women, actually stuck.
Like to think so, anyway...

Barack Obama was the guest of Beyonce and Jay-Z on Wednesday night. The foursome joined by about 100 other people at Jay-Zs 40/40 club in Manhattan had a wildly successful evening, raising $4 million for the presidents reelection campaign. ...
To J and B, thank you so much for your friendship, the president said.
Beyoncé could not be a better role model for my girls because she carries herself with such class and poise and has so much talent, he said.
The singer has taken an active role in promoting Obamas bid, posting an open letter to Michelle Obama on her blog and later reading it an a web video released by the campaign. ...

"The raised fist (also known as the clenched fist) is a salute and logo most often used by left-wing activists, such as: Marxists, anarchists, socialists, communists, pacifists, trade unionists, and black nationalists. The raised fist is usually regarded as an expression of solidarity, strength or defiance."
Get someone better
Andrea Bocelli...is he free?
An orchestra performing film scores...that’d be magnificent.
May I respectfully repeat a joke:
Did you hear Santa got in trouble last year?
He was saying Ho, Ho, Ho when three women were walking past him.
The only Fleetwood Mac worthy of a reunion is the original crew with Peter Green, Jeremy Spencer and Danny Kirwan and no women. The latter iteration produced AOR pap. The NFL isn’t the kind of organization to put a halftime act other than one that causes the males with ear rings and females with tattoos to swoon. The last SB halftime act I watched was Santana and only because I know the drummer.
Tina will STILL be rockin’ it from the grave. :)
Film Scores? MOST of the James Bond Movie Scores...or ‘Oklahoma.’ Either work for me. ;)
Andrea Bocelli? You said The Magic Words! :)
Interesting that the people who are known for promoting communism are the ones who can actually afford to be communist because the results wouldn’t affect them in the least. (the “elites”)
The rising popularity of these movements again is mostly due the fact that we no longer teach true history in public school anymore along with the degradation of the family in America.
Of course - that’s been the plan all along...
At least putting her money and actions where her beliefs are. Might not agree with ‘em but beats booking the gig and then doing something disrespectful.
I kinda enjoyed the college marching bands back in the day.
What’s a Rhianna
Wow cool! (Santana connection) I suggested Andrea Bocelli, a live orchestra, and Tina Turner in a later post...
Cirque Du Soleil?
Ten years from now, after her career tanks, she’d probably kill to be the halftime performer at a high school football game.
I’d really like to see you Super Bowl Halftime that was a little less ethnic.
