The shocking headline on the AP wire story posted on the Pioneer Press Web site says it all: “Olson, 3 other ex-SLA members, to plead guilty to murder.”
To expand on the headline a little, St. Paul’s own terrorist–Sara Jane Olson, f/k/a Kathleen Soliah–has agreed to plead guilty to the murder of Myrna Opsahl in the course of the robbery of the Crocker National Bank in Sacramento in 1975, along with her three other Symbionese Liberation Army colleagues who are also in custody.
Rocket Man and I wrote about Olson’s local supporters in the piece “Kathy’s Clowns” that is linked over on the left under our publications. Rocket Man appeared on a local television public affairs show discussing her apprehension and participation in the various offenses that led to her apprehension.
Olson’s incarceration for her plea on the original attempted bombing charge in Los Angeles and her pending plea on the murder charge in Sacramento bring a measure of justice to the family of Myrna Opsahl, a measure of justice that has been resisted vociferously by Olson’s leftist friends and colleagues in the Twin Cities and elsewhere.
Her conviction in Los Angeles and her pending conviction in Sacramento are almost entirely attributable to the unbelievably dogged legal work of Los Angeles County Assistant District Attorney Michael Lattin. We have previously conveyed to him personally our sincere gratitude and admiration for his outstanding work; he played an invaluable role in bringing both of these difficult cases to a successful resolution.
