Homegrown Terrorists & Crime cont...

In 1981 in Nyack, New York another group of "homegrown terrorists", members of the Black Liberation Army and the Weather Underground decided to use the robbery of an armored car as a means to finance their terrorist agenda. In the process Police Officers Waverly Brown and Sgt. Edward OGrady along with Brinks Guard Peter Paige were gunned down. The defendants were arrested, convicted, and sentenced to long prison terms. Daniel Boyd's tape recorded comments about "hitting banks and armored cars" are a stark reminder of the methods used by terrorists to raise funds.
