Justice served with Olson’s sentence

On Jan. 18, justice was served when Sara Jane Olson, also known as Kathleen Soliah, was sentenced to 20 years in the slammer for her felonious and terror driven acts of the 1970s.

The defense drivel and “friends and family” protestations of what a wonderful human being she is (was) rightly fell on deaf ears of the system she tried to overthrow by murder, terror and treason. She even looks evil, and perhaps the best analogy I can come up with as I sit here is an old movie (circa 1945) titled “The Picture of Dorian Gray.” She has become the picture, and nothing can change or modify how evil this person is.

Every now and then we catch them, and I am proud of our system that we put this bad one away.
