This is Marilyn Buck, cop-killer, friend of cop-killer Mumia Abu Jamal, also friend (rather, indicted co-conspirator) of un-indicted co-conspirators Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, who are personal friends of President Obama, who paroled Buck from prison despite the fact that she had decades more to serve for multiple shootings and bombings, including the 1981 Brinks Robbery that left two innocent police and a security guard dead.
It’s a small world after all.
These are the policemen and security guard killed in the Brinks robbery:
Officer Waverly “Chipper” Brown
Marilyn Buck has become a hero among Leftists. They’ll tell you it’s because she was a “freedom fighter” or a “Marxist anti-imperialist poet,” but it’s really because she was unrepentant about killing police and bombing buildings. Here is one of the many tributes to Marilyn Buck, who developed terminal cancer after her parole date was set:
Here are some people holding hands in remembrance of her “spirit.” I wonder if any of them are thinking of Peter Paige, Edward O’Grady and Chipper Brown.
Look, more terrorists.
Gosh, where do you think they are, on the beach? They’re in prison. Or rather, they were in prison. Then Bill Clinton pardoned the terrorist in the middle, who came out and wrote what is perhaps the whiniest memoir of her generation, which is saying quite a lot (George Russell has a great review here). The terrorist on the left got cut loose early during the Clinton administration, too. Obama freed Buck last year.
Here is a picture of the terrorist in the middle speaking at a prestigious international writing conference after Bill Clinton pardoned her. Why did he pardon her?
Here is a picture of Marilyn Buck with her good friend who is a law professor at Emory University. Lots of people associated with the Black Panthers and the Weather Underground and the BLA became college professors or law professors and they all seem to have won PEN prizes for their horrible and silly poetry. Buck, who could not versify her way out of a wet paper bag, won three PEN awards (see here and here for more ethical decision-making by PEN).

Here is a terrorist who became a law professor at Northwestern University, with her husband the terrorist who now holds a prestigious post as the Vice President for Curriculum Studies of the American Educational Research Association, where he helps decide what children will be taught in schools. By the way, he’s also a self-described sexual radical, which doesn’t seem to have harmed his career in elementary education:
Interestingly, Bill Ayers was named Chicago Citizen of the Year in 1997, when he was working with a young lawyer named Barack Obama . . . for the work he did with Barack Obama. But Bernadine Dohrn really seems to have been the brain trust, which comes across in this creepy documentary. Dohrn isn’t just a law professor: she has long been a suspect in the unsolved bombing murder of a San Francisco police officer.
Isn’t it odd how the black-and-white photos of the murdered police seem to be from some long-ago era? That’s because they died. They didn’t grow old and walk on beaches or hang out with international celebrities at writing conferences or receive special favors from presidents or acquire academic posts they never really earned . . . but for the invisible line on the vitae for the right type of bomb-throwing.
You know: aim at police.
So why have all these terrorists been set free by Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, or never prosecuted in the first place? “Guilty as hell, free as a bird, America is a great country,” Ayers notoriously told David Horowitz. On September 11, 2001, he smirked out from the pages of the New York Times under a headline that read No Regrets for a Love of Explosives. That morning, Joe Trombino, one of the Brinks employees who survived the 1981 attack, was killed in the Twin Towers.
Marilyn Buck, the unrepentant, paroled, dead terrorist and cop-killer, is well on her way to being anointed a minor Ché. She’s got the face. The Center for Constitutional Rights celebrates her — celebrates a cop-killer — as do many other activists and academicians.
