Katherine Ann Powers story plays out like a Hollywood movie: the radical anti-war college student participated in a Boston bank heist in 1970, intending to help fund a revolution. The heist went horribly wrong; her co-conspirators were arrested, and Power the getaway driver hid from the FBI for more than two decades under a different identity, spending some of that time working and raising a family in Lebanon, Corvallis and Albany.
The difference, Power said, is that she is not a movie protagonist, and Boston Police Officer Walter Schroeder, who was shot and killed during the heist, was a real person with a family.
Since that time giving herself up to authorities after 23 years in hiding, spending six years in prison and 14 more years on probation
Power used several aliases during her time on the run until she found the name of a baby who had died about the time she was born Alice Louise Metzinger. Power obtained a birth certificate, Social Security number and drivers license under that name and established herself

On Sept. 24, 1970, Power and four other sixties radicals robbed a bank in Boston to provide funds for a revolution. No longer satisfied with protesting the Vietnam War, she was waging guerrilla war to overthrow the government. Power was not the one who shot and killed Boston Police Officer Walter Schroeder. But under Massachusetts state law, she was found guilty of manslaughter and armed robbery.
Officer Schroeder had a family, in this case a wife and nine kids. He also had a much larger extended family, one that every cop earns as a police officer. In 1968, he received the departments highest honor, the Walter Scott Medal for Valor, for disarming three bank robbers.
He was just doing his job when one of the radicals that Powers accompanied shot him in the back at the same bank where he caught those bad guys before.
She and her room-mate Susan Saxe worked to organize student protests for a committee known as the National Student Strike Force. The two also became acquainted with fellow organizer Stanley Ray Bond, an ex-convict and ...
Through their association with Bond, Power and Saxe became involved in a plot to arm the Black Panthers as a response to United States involvement in the Vietnam War. Bond introduced them to former convicts William Gilday and Robert Valeri and together the group plotted to rob the State Street Bank & Trust
In November 1970, Power and Saxe became the sixteenth and seventeenth persons on the FBI’s Most Wanted Fugitives list
How will she talk her way out of the death Boston Police Officer Walter Schroeder?? What about his family and friends?
she found the name of a baby who had died about the time she was born .. Power obtained a birth certificate, Social Security number and
Common trick among community organizers, mass murderers, ACORN thugs , and ... ?
I read the exact same story as you. She'll get hers someday. There is cosmic justice indeed.
Though just 10 I remember shooting well, three years later his brother John was also shot and killed on duty, according to a comment on the memorial site his brother in law was also shot while on duty.
Officer Schroeder’s memorial page:
If you would like more information about Oregon, please FReepmail me. I lost my Oregon list when my computer crashed last month.
Heroes in the mind of the peacenik crowd in Eugene. Killers, heroes of peace activists, imagine?
Bill Ayers with a bra. And like him, no remorse at all. What a despicable old hippie.
The leftie loons who support her also are despicable.
I remember this piece of dung and others just like her. Sadly, too many of them escaped justice but their day of reckoning will come and I wouldn’t want to be in their shoes when it does.
William Ayers (Obamie’s commie) and wife Bernadine Dohrn are the prime suspected in the reopened homicide case of San Francisco Office Tom McDonnell.
One day they will be arrested’
RIP Larry Grathwohl,former Weathermen insider for the FBI. Died a couple months ago but his reissued book came out about the Weather Underground Organization, Ayers, Dohrn, etc.
A conservative’s dream, “Obama, Ayes and Dohrn” together in jail with Eric Holder doing life in solitary.
Dreams have a way of coming true, you know.
The Ayers say that they didn't do it but I'd like to hear a jury say it.. not much of a chance of that.. alas they are arguably now part of "the Establishment" that includes the MSM and other bratty issue of 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus psycho spoiled brats.
"The San Francisco Police Officers Association's leadership has been told to muzzle it after signing a letter accusing onetime Weather Underground radical Bill Ayers and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, of being behind the nearly 40-year-old bombing at a San Francisco police station that killed a sergeant.
"We hear that both U.S. Justice Department reps and Police Chief Heather Fong put in calls to the union to find out just what they were doing talking out of school about an active investigation that may be ready to make a move soon in the 1970 bombing at Park Station. The word was, button your lips.
"Police Officers Association President Gary Delagnes confirmed that his union got a call from federal investigators telling them they had an 'active investigation and should not be commenting on the case.' Delagnes said the letter was meant only to show support for the family of the slain officer, Sgt. Brian McDonnell, and to help them 'bring closure to the case.'
"No one has ever been charged in the bombing, and Ayers said last week he had nothing to do with it." [End of 18 March, 2009 article]
The 64-year-old Boston-area resident will reflect on her past and her memoir-in-progress, tentatively titled, Surrender, during a public lecture scheduled for noon today at Oregon State University. The lecture is sponsored by the OSU Peace Studies Program, the School of History, Philosophy and Religion and the Annares Project.
These people should be hounded to death, like Nazi war criminals.
