On Oct. 20, 1981, Sgt. Edward O’Grady, Patrolman Waverly Brown and Brinks guard Peter Paige were gunned down in Rockland County, N.Y. by heavily armed terrorists. The half dozen gunmen — all Americans — were members of the Weather Underground, a faction of the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and the Black Liberation Army, formed from members of the Black Panther Party and the Republic of New Afrika.
UPDATE April 3rd, 2013... Radical Jailed in Murder Now Columbia Professor : Former Weather Underground radical Kathy Boudin — who spent 22 years in prison for an armored-car robbery that killed two cops and a Brinks guard — now holds a prestigious adjunct professorship at Columbia University’s School of Social Work, The Post has learned. Boudin, 69, this year won another academic laurel — being named the Sheinberg Scholar-in-Residence at NYU Law School, where last month she gave a lecture on “the politics of parole and re-entry.” Boudin’s bounce-back into respectability after her 2003 parole comes to light a week before the release of Robert Redford’s movie “The Company You Keep,” loosely based on the $1.6 million heist.
MOVIE: The Company You Keep — a political thriller directed by and starring Robert Redford — premiered in Toronto. Now we’ve got a full, proper theatrical trailer for the movie. This trailer sets up the story a bit differently, using a dialogue cut-and-paste to lay out the story of two former Weather Underground members, one of whom is captured (Susan Sarandon), leading the other (Redford) to go on the run.
Shia LaBeouf is the reporter who goes on the trail of the story, giving the footage a real “All the President’s Men” sort of feel. Some of the rest of the impressive cast (Julie Christie, Sam Elliott, Brendan Gleeson, Terrence Howard, Richard Jenkins, Anna Kendrick, Brit Marling, Stanley Tucci, Nick Nolte, Chris Cooper) gets time in this trailer, too, just to let audiences know that everyone showed up when Redford called.
Just like in the 1960′s with the SDS, Weather Underground and the Black Panthers, today we have the violent Black Bloc faction of the Occupy Movement which has linked up with every communist organization on the planet, different day, same story. A founder of the Weatherman group, Bernardine Dohrn was a member of the “Weather Bureau”. Larry Grathwohl, an FBI informant who was with the Weatherman from 1969 through 1970, considered Dohrn one of the two top leaders of the terrorist organization, along with Bill Ayers.

Dohrn also co-wrote and published the subversive manifesto Prairie Fire in 1974, Dohrn clearly stated support for Communist ideology, In the late 1970s, the Weatherman group split into two factions — the “May 19 Coalition” and the “Prairie Fire Collective” — with Dohrn and Ayers in the latter. Once a “Commie’ always a “Commie”.

Thirty years ago, in the heart of New York City, on the 28th floor of 26 Federal Plaza, the very first Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) in the nation was established. It was April of 1980; Supervisory Special Agent Barry Mawn would head up the newly designed task force with 10 agents from the FBI’s New York Field Office and 10 New York Police Department (NYPD) detectives. They would pursue threats from the Armed Forces of National Liberation (FALN), the Puerto Rican Independence Movement, the Weather Underground, the Black Liberation Army, the Croatian Independence Movement, and many other domestic and international terrorist groups.
