In April, TheBlaze.com reported on the former Weather Underground, cop-killing, radical, Kathy Boudin, who was hired in 2008 as a professor in Columbia University's School of Social Work. After 22 years in prison, the Ivy league institution apparently felt she was fit to teach a class about the issues facing convicts and their families when a criminal is released from prison — admittedly, a topic she is well versed in.
Jesse Watters of The O'Reilly Factor, managed to track her down earlier this week and ask her a few questions — no surprise, she wasn't very chatty.
While on the Columbia campus, Watters also interviewed several students on the topic. How do they feel about attending a school that would hire a women convicted in the murder of two cops during a 1981 Brinks robbery?
The students, while somewhat surprised to hear that Boudin was a convicted killer, didn't seem to disturbed that she was teaching classes on their campus. In fact, a couple defended the schools decision. One student even eluded to the fact driving the getaway car didn't make her a party to the murder of the police officers that died in her case.
There were at least a couple individuals on campus that didn't share the nonchalance of having a Weather Underground killer teaching classes, including one retired NYPD officer Jesse interviewed.
“She’s shown no remorse for this crime and she’s using the college as a soap box to promote her mission to get her husband, who has a 75 year sentence, and other co-defendants out of jail,” said retired officer Arthur Keenan, who survived the 1981 Brinks robbery Boudin.
"That's astounding," Pat said after hearing the video.
Glenn agreed, and also pointed out that while Columbia will hire a convicted cop-killer who spent 22 years behind bars, they would never hire him.
But, "they've hired a cop‑killer/terrorist and they're all fine with it," he said.
