For the second time, Chris Christie has demanded that former Black Panther Assata Shakur be returned from Cuba to the state of New Jersey. In an op-ed he wrote for NewJersey.com, Christie reminds readers that while we celebrate President Barack Obama’s recent trip to the Caribbean island that trip “doesn’t come without a price.”

He claims that allowing for Shakur to Cuba, who was convicted in 1977 of the 1972 killing of Werner Foerster on the New Jersey Turnpike, lets Shakur get away with being a “cop killer” while Foerster family goes without justice.

He wrote, “I urge the president to do what common sense and decency requires—that he demand the return of convicted murderer Joanne Chesimard, who stands remorseless and free after the cold-blooded, execution-style killing of a New Jersey State Trooper and the serious wounding of another.”

However Cuba has been clear that they are not going to hand over Shakur, who was sentenced to life in prison but escaped and fled to Cuba where then president Fidel Castro granted her political asylum in 1984.

Meanwhile, Christie has come under serious fire lately for endorsing Donald Trump for president, which has resulted in six New Jersey newspapers calling for Christie’s resignation. Translation: Worry about you boo. #HandsOffAssata (NewJersey.Com)
