NEW JERSEY -  Finally.

It has been thirty-two years since New Jersey's most wanted fugitive, Joanne Chesimard, executed New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster in cold blood.  That was on May 2, 1973.

She was tried, convicted, and sent to prison.

However, six years later in November of 1979, Chesimard, who now prefers the name Assata Shakur, escaped from prison with the help of her brethren.  Eventually, she made her way to Cuba where she has been living ever since.

Since 1979 some attempts were made to bring her back.  By far, these efforts fell short and received little if any follow-up.

However, on May 2, 2005, New Jersey Attorney General Peter Harvey and New Jersey State Police Superintendent Rick Fuentes announced a one-million-dollar bounty on the head of Chesimard.

According to NJ.com, "About a year ago, Harvey and Fuentes approached Joseph Billy, then Special Agent in Charge of the FBI's Newark office and now deputy assistant director for counter-intelligence in Washington, D.C. Billy helped them apply to the FBI to increase the reward. Harvey and Fuentes presented their arguments directly to FBI Director Robert Mueller, and U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales signed the order last Thursday."

"'She is now 120 pounds of money,' State Police Superintendent Rick Fuentes said. 'It is going to exert pressures that weren't in place nationally and internationally before. And we're going to follow up to make sure everybody is aware of this both inside and outside of Cuba.'"

The report went on to say, "Authorities know Chesimard is living in Cuba under political asylum. They hope this new reward will provide more incentive for bounty hunters."

Harvey and Fuentes should be applauded for not letting this die.  Many, kudos to them any anyone else involved. Finally, a new chapter is opened in this saga, and, perhaps, some enterprising, adventuresome, person or group will take a little working vacation.

Even if that doesn't happen, Chesimard will no longer be able to lie on the beach sipping drinks while living off the royalties of her books. 

She will no longer be able to casually saunter down the streets, take in a movie, or do whatever else people living on exotic islands do.

In a country where the minimum wage is eight-dollars and forty-cents a month, this excrement will have to look over her shoulder for the rest of her life.

Joanne Chesimard, enjoy your new life.

Is it really possible that someone or a group would travel to Cuba, track down this woman and basically kidnap her and bring her back to the U.S.?

If I wasn't married with a kid, and had some more balls, I would be tempted too.  Plus, the one million dollars would be nothing compared to the book and TV deal you would get.

 

If I were going to do it, I would first fly there on a vactation from Canada.  Learn the country, find out where she lives, develop a plan and come home. 

 

The second trip would be where I would snatch her and bring her to a waiting cigarette boat.  Then, it would be time to haul ass out of Cuban waters.  If they catch you, you're finished.  Torture, more torture and death.

I'd love to see Elian Gonzalez bring the bitch back. If Clinton had any balls or if he could have got them back from Hillary, this murdering bitch would be here rotting in jail. He should have made it a stipulation in sending the kid back.

Let's all pray someone has the capitol to finance a recon trip to CUBA to bring her back. I'd go myself if I had the funds. Failure would not be an option, Americans don't do well in Cuban prisons.
