EDIT
Hiding In Plain Sight: Tales Of A Fugitive
AIRED:
After 28 years, authorities finally catch up with one-time student radical Howard Mechanic, the first person sentenced under the Civil Obedience Act in 1970 for lobbing cherry bombs at cops at an anti-war rally. While on the lam, he ran a health food business and apartment hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona, where he was finally caught when he ran for city council under his assumed name. Behind bars for a crime he claims he didn't commit, some call Mechanic one of the last casualties of the Vietnam War.moreless
