Kathy Boudin, carrying roses she was given after her mother died, walks out of a Westchester prison yesterday (above). She was jailed 22 years ago for her role in the infamous Brinks heist that left two cops and a guard dead.

No tears for dead cops



http://www.NewsAndOpinion.com | Being the child of left-wing domestic terrorists means never having to say you're sorry.

Such is the case of young Chesa Boudin, hailed on the front page of the New York Times this week for overcoming "striking challenges" and lifelong suffering to win a prestigious Rhodes scholarship. In a lengthy tear-jerker profile, Boudin is elevated to hero status as the article details his childhood bouts with epilepsy, dyslexia, and "temper tantrums," before going on to Yale, traveling the world, and hitting the lecture circuit to exploit his celebrity status.

Boudin is the son of Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert, members of the militant Weathermen. They're the 1960s group of rich-kid radicals who bombed government buildings and corporate headquarters, aided convicted felons in jail breaks, and participated in a 1981 Brinks' armored car holdup in Nyack, N.Y., that took the lives of three innocent Americans in the name of "peace." Boudin's mother and father were convicted for their participation in the Nyack murders and armed robbery, and remain remorselessly in prison today.

Two of the holdup victims gunned down in the botched Brinks' robbery were police officers. One was a private security guard. All three were veterans from working-class backgrounds. Neither the Times nor any other media outlet that has breathlessly reported on Boudin's Rhodes scholarship win has even seen fit to print the names of the Nyack victims: Waverly Brown, Edward O'Grady, and Peter Paige.

What about the "striking challenges" faced by these three officers' children, who were robbed of their fathers forever and have never enjoyed the privileged lifestyle of a radical son like Chesa Boudin? Brown, who served in the Air Force after the Korean War, had two grown daughters and a teenage son. O'Grady, who served in the Marines and did two tours of duty in Vietnam, left behind a wife and three children - 6, 2, and 6 months old. Paige, a Navy veteran, also left behind a wife and three kids - 19, 16, and 9.

On the matter of their suffering and hardships, Chesa Boudin and his fawning interviewers are silent.

Chesa Boudin's indifference to the victims of his parents' ideological jihad was reinforced by his adoptive parents--unrepentant Weathermen colleagues Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. Ayers celebrated bombing the Pentagon in his recent radical memoir, "Fugitive Days," and now teaches at the University of Illinois in Chicago. Dohrn declared war on "Amerikka," helped stage the "Days of Rage" in Chicago, when Weathermen blew up a memorial statue to police officers and rioted violently, leaving 75 policemen wounded and one permanently injured in a wheelchair, and then spent years as a fugitive from justice before settling into a comfy post as director of the Legal Clinic's Children and Family Justice Center at Northwestern University.

From both his biological and adoptive parents, Chesa Boudin has learned to stew in the indignant self-pity of Marxist leftovers. "When I was younger, I was angry," the 22-year-old told his sympathetic Times interviewer. "Now I'm not angry. I'm sad that my parents have to suffer what they have to suffer on a daily basis, that millions of other people have to suffer as well."

Boudin is not talking about the families of victims who died as a result of Weathermen-sponsored violence. No, Boudin is talking about "urban misery in Bolivia, homelessness in Santiago and illiteracy in Guatemala." Praised by the p.c.-infected Rhodes scholarship committee for his "passion" and willingness to "fight the world's fight," Boudin stands by the Weathermen's revolutionary agenda: "My parents were all dedicated to fighting U.S. imperialism around the world. I'm dedicated to the same thing."

Cecil Rhodes must be turning in his grave. So, too, Waverly Brown, Edward O'Grady, and Peter Paige. What to do? While the Rhodes trustees lavish money on the red-diaper baby Boudin, there is a tiny fund to honor the officers who died in the brutal crime involving Boudin's parents. The O'Grady Brown Memorial Scholarship Fund helps deserving Rockland County, N.Y., students pursuing careers of public service in law enforcement. Checks can be made payable to: O'Grady-Brown Memorial Scholarship Fund, Inc., P.O. Box 1024, Nyack, NY 10960.

May God in His infinite wisdom comfort those who mourn with His peace that is beyond all understanding. May He lead them to forgiveness and eternal life. Amen.

As for the "Infamous '60s radical Kathy Boudin, convicted in the 1981 Brinks heist that left two cops and a security guard dead in Rockland County" may we leave this to God to work out in His own way.

I don't know about that, Tom Trantino, made two cops strip, perform sex acts on each other and then executed them. While in jail he was allowed conjugal visits and is now walking the streets a free man.

Once again Michelle Malkin hits the bullseye. The Radical Left is a cancer. It is dedicated to eating away at the body and soul of this nation. Fight or die.

Kathy Boudin could be a Democratic Candidate for President.

A compromise moderate candidate, with street cred.

Anybody who gives creedence to a Rhodes scholarship, a Pulitzer, Nobel Peace Prize or a Peabody Award is a rube. We should all know better by now. Everything is corrupted by politics and trying to find an advantage.

These are her firends, who raised Boudin's child, while she was in prison:


“guilty as hell…free as a bird...America is a great country.” Bill Ayers


At a 1969 “War Council” that helped launch the organization, Dohrn raised three fingers in a “fork salute” to Charles Manson, whom she proposed as a revolutionary inspiration. She went on to joke about Manson’s victims and dubbed them the “Tate Eight” after Sharon Tate, the pregnant actress whom members of the Manson tribe stabbed in the womb with a fork. “Dig it,” said Dohrn at the time. “First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them, they even shoved a fork into a victim’s stomach! Wild!”

Oh crap, like the Rosenberg brothers who were adopted by the "lovable" Stalinist couple Anne and Abel Meeropol.

Let's see...

Cop Killer Chesa Boudin, Bill Clinton, and Wesley Clark have ALL "won" the "prestigious" Rhodes scholarships. How ironically appropriate....

Moreover, Jimmy Carter and Yasir Arafat have "won" the "prestigious" Nobel Peace Prizes.

I submit that the word, "prestigious" is slightly overrated.

My uncle was killed in the line of duty.

The men who did it got two death sentences and two life sentences. They are out of jail.

My beloved uncle is still dead.

The tears never stop.

Anyone have any idea how she got another hearing just three months after the prior one?

Leonard Weinglass is a longtime extreme-leftist attorney (Chicago 7, Mumia) and let's not forget what the Hildabeast was doing in the 60/70s; I suspect there is a connection.

Did I say 'connection?'

It's all over the place, including the National Lawyers Guild SEE_HERE.

Hillary apparently was involved with this commie organization at the same time as Boudin's father (Leonard) and the BLA/Weather groups.

Don't forget Robert Reichhhhhhhhhhh and Bill Bradley.

The latter's selection shows that brains don't count for this 'scholarship' -- Bradley's dumb as a rock.

That is why there must always be a death penalty, not only for the killers of peace officers, but for anyone who murders another person. "Life without parole" is a joke. Anyone so sentenced can be released upon a shift in the political wind.

I will never understand how you can get a life sentence and a death sentence and walk the streets.

The death sentence does deter crime. Dead people don't kill again.
