Feds offer $1 million reward for Black Liberation Army's Joanne Chesimard

EWING TOWNSHIP, New Jersey (AP) - Authorities posted a $1 million reward for an activist convicted of killing a New Jersey state trooper 32 years ago Monday.

Black Liberation Army member Joanne Chesimard was convicted of the murder of Trooper Werner Foerster, but she escaped to Cuba and was granted political asylum after three gunmen helped her escape from a women's prison in 1979.

New Jersey officials have failed to pressure Cuba to hand over Chesimard, 57, who goes by the name Assata Shakur.

Foerster responded as backup when another trooper had stopped Chesimard and two companions for a faulty tail light on the New Jersey Turnpike in 1973.

Shots soon rang out and Foerster was hit. As he lay on the ground, authorities said Chesimard took his gun and mortally shot him in the neck and head.

Her brother-in-law was killed in the gun battle and another man was arrested. Clark Squire is serving a life sentence in a Pennsylvania prison and was denied parole last August.

Chesimard's name is to be added to the FBI's domestic terrorist list.

LiLi,

So lemme see if I get this right: They're ranking a +30-yr murder with the likes of bin Laden and his gang.

COME ON, already!

See. Now THIS is definitely the kind of thing that Civil Libertarians should be up in arms about.

'Cause what's to stop them from putting a "Wanted Dead or Alive" bounty on anyone.
