Like Bernadette Dohrn before her, another Brinks criminal has moved on to a position of influence in academia.
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 in Rockland County — 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 is so close to left-wing revolutionaries Bill Ayers and Bernadette Dohrn that her son Chesa Boudin was adopted by Chicago communists. Incidentally POTUS Barack Obama has extensive ties with the Ayers from their academia days, holding his first ever political fundraiser at their house in the 1990s.
Rockland DA Thomas Zugibe worked on the Brinks case in Ken Gribetz’s DA’s office in the 1980s. Zugibe told the Rockland County Times, “The early release of Kathy Boudin, a convicted accomplice in the cold-blooded murders of two fine police officers and a security guard was a travesty of justice. This latest action by a respected institution of higher learning willing to embrace this convicted killer notwithstanding the gravity of her crimes is affront to us all and further erodes the public’s confidence in our system of justice. Unbelievable!”
