Do you remember the Symbianese Liberation Army? I recall that it was the topic of discussion in the teachers' lounge on certain cold, winter days in 1974.
The most-noted member of the group was poor little rich girl, Patty Hearst who was kidnapped by the group and later joined them in their criminal activities, including the robbing of a bank which was owned by the family of Patty's one-time best friend.
Following a year on the FBI most wanted list, Ms. Hearst was arrested on September 18, 1975. Following her trial, she served 22 months in prison before the sentence was commuted by President Carter. Her criminal record was expunged when President Clinton granted her a pardon.
Most any discussion of the case will eventually evoke the phrase "Stockholm Syndrome," and conversely discussions of Stockholm Syndrome will often evoke the name Patty Hearst.
Ms. Hearst has written memoirs, has pursued an erstwhile acting career and is currently a wife and mother of two children living in New York State.
