Assata Shakur, a.k.a. Joanne Chesimard is a former(?) Black Panther and Black Liberation Army agitator and cop killer. She has been a fugitive from justice for nearly 40 years and openly thumbs her nose at her victim’s family while living in Cuba as a political asylee. In 1973, Chesimard shot and killed New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster execution-style during a traffic stop. She is currently hiding from US authorities in Cuba.
As Officer Foerster lay on the ground wounded and helpless, Shakur grabbed his gun and blasted two shots into his head.
On Friday President Donald Trump called on Cuba to turn over cop killer Joanne Chesimard.
“We respect Cuban sovereignty but we will not forget the suffering of the Cuban people.”
