Kathy Boudin, an ex-Weather Underground radical who spent time in prison for a dramatic armed-car robbery that left two police officers and security guard dead, has a new gig: adjunct professor at Columbia University.
She’s going to be teaching specifically in the university’s School of Social Work, the New York Post reports.
Ms. Boudin spent 22 years behind bars for driving the getaway car during the heist and was paroled in 2003. Now 69, she’s switched her career of crime for one of academics. She’s also the Sheinberg scholar-in-residence at New York University Law School, the Post reports.
Family members of the victims aren’t amused.
“She doesn’t deserve a job at all,” said Josephine Paige, the widow of the Brinks security guard, Peter Paige, who was killed during the heist, in the Post. The Paiges had three children together, she said. “She doesn’t deserve anything, nothing at all. I think she should be back in an institution.”
