    She must be easy to control on and off the set to be taken in so easily by her capturs. Such a shame. Living an easy life, just doing exactly what your told. When morals and ethic are all shown in grey, it seems easy that anyone can tell her to do anything. Maybe that's what the rich lack. The ability to see and understand reality outside the confines of what their wealth grants them... or maybe she's just a dumb broad who suffered from misguiding her pity and Stockholm Syndrome.

    The five Hearst sisters lived around the corner from our house. Their parents (now deceased) were friend of my parents. They were a good, normal family - riding their bikes with us, swimming in the summer, going on trips sometimes - skiing or to Mexico or San Simeon. Patty was a student at Berkeley - cooking dinner in her own apartment one night when those SLA freaks abducted her - partly because her mother was on the board of reagents at Berkeley. They demanded millions of dollars from her father and mother. Patty didn't ask to be kidnapped. She was kept in a small closet, raped repeatedly and forced at gunpoint to say horrible things on tapes to be broadcast by an underground radio station. She was forced at gunpoint to hold an empty gun on camera during a bank robbery at Hibernia Bank - to embarass and horrify her family. Patty was only doing what other kidnapping victims try to do - stay alive. It is true that she unwillingly participated in some things they made her do - but if you study the Stockholm syndrome - this is what victims sometimes do - you find yourself placating the captors so they won't kill you. The important thing is she never was in any kind of trouble before all this happened when she was 19 - and has not been in any sort of trouble since this all ended in 1980. Patty is and always has been a good person, mother and wife - going on 28 years with Bernie Shaw. Patty is an example of a kidnap victim who came out of it alive. If you knew her you'd see that - and feel lucky what happened to her did not happen to any of us.

    Jockbod,

    I've never thought badly of her because of what happened. I know she was the victim there. I understand from people who've met her that she's very nice and quite genuine.
