Symbionese Liberation Parolee

Goodness me. This takes me back. The Symbionese Liberation Army, Patty Hearst and all the weirdness of American domestic terrorism. The Weathermen [later Weather Underground], the Black Panthers [J.Edgar Hoover really bent the law around them]...all the stuff that supposedly never happened, because the USA has never had any domestic terrorists....hah! Its amazing how the modern academic hates to read! This editorial very remeniscent of the problem of what to do with Astrid Proll and other members of the Baader-Meinhoff/June 2nd groups when they were discovered long after going to ground.

Some intresting comparisons to make with white collar crime...white collar terrorism? Sounds like a book title to me. Conference money anybody?
