On this day in 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down state laws that had
been restricting abortions during the first six months of pregnancy. The case
(Roe vs. Wade) legalized abortion. The Court ruled, in a 7-2 decision, that

a woman’s right to choose an abortion was protected by the privacy rights guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

DRAFT DODGERS PARDONED ON THIS DAY IN 1977

Image result for draft dodgers pardoned 1977  
President Jimmy Carter, in his first day in office, fulfilled a campaign
promise by announcing the pardoning of draft dodgers.

 

     


On January 21, 1977, U.S. President
Jimmy Carter granted an unconditional
pardon to hundreds of thousands of men who evaded the draft during the
Vietnam War by fleeing the country or by failing to register. The executive
order left many people furious, while others saw it as a bold show of
compassion.

In total, some 100,000 young Americans went abroad in the late 1960s and
early 70s to avoid serving in the war. Ninety percent went to Canada, where
after some initial controversy they were eventually welcomed as immigrants.

Still others hid inside the United States. In addition to those who avoided
the draft, a relatively small number–about 1,000–of deserters from the U.S.
armed forces also headed to Canada. While the Canadian government
technically reserved the right to prosecute deserters, in practice they left
them alone, even instructing border guards not to ask too many questions.

HISTORIC BRINK’S ROBBERY ON THIS DAY IN 1950

Image result for historic brinks robbery in 1950


On January 17, 1950, 11 men steal more than $2 million ($29 million today) 
from the Brink’s Armored Car depot in Boston,
Massachusetts. It was the
perfect crime—almost—as the culprits weren’t caught until January 1956,
just days before the statute of limitations for the theft expired.

The robbery’s mastermind was Anthony “Fats” Pino, a career criminal who recruited a group of 10 other men to stake out the depot for 18 months to
figure out when it held the most money. Pino’s men then managed to steal
plans for the depot’s alarm system, returning them before anyone noticed
they were gone.
