Columbia University Hires Weather Underground Cop Killer

Screen Shot 2013-04-03 at 1.18.08 AMThe halls of Columbia University have been filled with radicals for decades, but their latest addition is quite stunning:

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.

She will be lecturing on “the issues facing convicts and their families when a person is released from prison.”

Yes, I’m sure that will be the full breadth of her lessons.

Too bad there aren’t any non-cop killers who are capable of teaching something like that.

For the record, here’s what she took part in:

The Village of Nyack has erected monuments to the slain officers and holds an annual ceremony in their memory. Officer Waverly Brown, 45, and Sgt. Edward O’Grady Jr., 33, were killed on October 20, 1981 when they stopped a U Haul truck occupied by gang members who had murdered Brinks’ guard Peter Paige just minutes before. When the officers tried to open the rear doors of the U Haul, the suspects, who were never all identified, came out shooting. Brown and O’Grady were instantly killed by a barrage of bullets from automatic weapons. Kathy Boudin, a passenger in the front seat of the truck, was apprehended as she ran from the scene of the carnage. She was already on the lam for over ten years as a result of an explosion in a Greenwich village townhouse-bomb factory that unintentionally killed three fellow terrorists.
