    Judith Clark, the getaway driver in a fatal armored car robbery in 1981, has been denied parole, despite support from Governor Andrew Cuomo for her release. Four months ago, Cuomo sparked controversy after he commuted Clark's life sentence, allowing the former revolutionary to seek early release for her role in the botched robbery of a Brinks truck in Rockland County. After the ruling, he released a statement saying Clark deserved the opportunity to make her case and he respects the parole board's decision. Clark has served more than 35 years of a 75-years-to-life sentence for her role in the shooting,...

    Convicted leftist terrorist Susan Rosenberg must be counted among the unlikeliest candidates ever to be awarded a university teaching post. Just four years ago, Rosenberg was serving out the 16th year of a 58-year sentence for the possession of more than 700 pounds of explosives and a stockpile of illicit weapons. Moreover, the onetime member of a leftist terrorist outfit called “The Family” was also a suspect in a 1981 robbery-gone-awry that left three people dead in Nyack, New York. However, next January students at Hamilton College, a small liberal arts school in upstate New York, will know Susan Rosenberg,...

    USA --( A captured Fast and Furious murder suspect, a documentary in the making, and a Federal Firearms Licensee fighting revocation by ATF were all subjects explored last week in the Gun Rights Examiner column. Last Sunday, we looked at what the capture of a suspect in the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry captured in Mexico means in terms of obtaining justice and getting to the truth about our government’s role in the Operation Fast and Furious “gunwalking.” One thing not mentioned by the “Authorized Journalists” of mainstream media: If we expect Jesus Leonel Sanchez Meza to stand...

    In a move that may at least temporarily thwart attempts by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to revoke the Federal Firearms License of Brink’s, Inc., the security company has won a Monday hearing with the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas Dallas Division, the court ordered Friday. “Pursuant to the order of reference dated August 15, 2012, this matter has been automatically referred for pretrial management,” the order explains. “A hearing has been scheduled concerning this matter, including all pending motions, for Monday, September 17, 2011, at 2:00 p.m. in courtroom 1566,” the...

    By improperly causing a hearing to be removed from the court calendar, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives prevented a Federal Firearms Licensee from seeking discovery crucial to its case for a scheduled revocation hearing, a motion filed on behalf of Brink’s, Incorporated, in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas at Dallas asserted Monday. Requesting either “to reinstate [the court] hearing date or, in the alternative, to reschedule [the] FFL revocation hearing,” the motion points out it “serves as Brink’s only opportunity to obtain discovery for the purposes of defending its license.” This...

    Why has nobody ripped on the new Brinks/Broadview ads yet? Those commercials are ripe for the plucking. A young woman or vulnerable woman with little girl faces a bad guy who bashes in the door. Here’s what I’d like to see: rather than running away in terror, the woman calmly pulls out her gun and removes the dirt bag’s defective DNA from the collective gene pool. Then when the Brinks guy calls: Hello, Ms. Smith, this is Mr. Handsome Brinks guy. Are you all right? Woman: Yes, we’re fine. Some dirt bag just kicked in my front door. Brinks Guy:...

Surveillance video shows the guard walking to the truck, and two men approaching him with guns. The FBI says one of the thieves grabbed the bag of cash while the other stole the guard's gun.

    A bloody robbery attempt brings a roundup of '60s fugitives The armored Brink's truck pulled up to the Nanuet National Bank near suburban Nyack, N. Y., shortly before 4 p.m. and two guards began loading $1.6 million in cash. Suddenly three armed men in ski masks jumped out of a red van and opened fire. One guard was killed instantly and the other critically wounded. The three bandits and an accomplice dashed off with the loot. "They didn't even ask them to hand over the money," declared an incredulous witness. "They just blasted away." The robbers changed conveyances at a...
