The Middle Path, One Day At A Time

Let’s get this straight, once and for all…

The only people the Weather Underground killed were three of their own members, who died when a bomb they were building detonated.

The guard and police officers killed in the Brinks Robbery were killed by members of the Black Liberation Army, which included three former members of WU.  The Weather Underground organization had nothing to do with the robbery, which occurred on October 20, 1981, nearly a year after William Ayers surrendered to the FBI.

All charges against Ayers for his activities with the Weather Underground were subsequently dropped.

    I just finished skimming thru a book on the, well actually – SDS written by Kirkpatrick Sale. There’s a DVD out on the Weather Underground from 2003 as well. I was very interested in both groups in ’68-71….high school.
