  1. I certainly do believe she was kidnapped, I read her book. Something just rang true about it, and I remember when it was on the news every night for months, maybe even years. So glad that it had a happy ending and she got a pardon from the President. I think the prosecutors simply wanted promotions from getting her convicted, that was obvious. Although she lived in luxury, she certainly did not deserve to be kidnapped, thrown in the trunk of a car and locked in a closet for months. She is s survivor. Good for Patty.

  2. I quess I thought , I was a bad ass as well. Stationed at Treasure Island San/Fran as a Marine. I worked PT. as a Guard Armored Trucks in the same area that the SLA was active in the East-Bay up to Berkeley Ca. Area and on that note. Im alive and still breathing today.
