First Woman on U.S. Most Wanted Terrorist ListSubmitted by go213mph on Sat, 05/04/2013 - 15:49
The thing I find intersting about this case is that she was a murderer back in 1973 but somehow magically transformed into a "terrorist" in 2005. As so many have noted...we are all becoming "terrorists" in the eyes of the State
Forty years after a New Jersey state trooper was killed in cold blood, the alleged culprit, Joanne Chesimard, was named a Most Wanted Terrorist this week, marking the first time that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has put a woman on the list, which was created a month after the attacks of September 11, 2001.
Chesimard, aka Assata Shakur, was a member of the Black Liberation Army in 1973 when she and two others were pulled over for having a broken tail light. An ensuing gun battle resulted in one officer, James Harper, being wounded and the other, Werner Foerster, being shot with his own gun at point-blank range.
One of Chesimard’s accomplices was killed in the shootout. The other was arrested and remains in jail.
