BEDFORD, N.Y. - Over bitter protests from law officers, 1960s radical Kathy Boudin was released from prison Wednesday after serving 22 years for murder in an armored car heist that left two police officers and a security guard dead.

Boudin, 60, was granted parole last month.

Boudin was a member of the Weather Underground, a group that helped define the radical antiwar movement of the 1960s with protests and bombings.

She was recruited for the robbery by Black Liberation Army members and other radicals.

The robbers stole $1.6-million from a Brink's armored car in 1981.
