Apparently killing cops is a lucrative endeavor. Convicted cop-killer Assata Shaker just got a big fat check from North Carolina. It’s unclear if she will be able to cash this check living in exile in Cuba, but I’m sure she’ll find a way. If not her, then one of her many leftist admirers will make it happen. If there’s one thing liberals do it’s make sure that “oppressed” folk heroes like cop-killers are fairly compensated for their pain and suffering.
The News & Observer reports:
A county in North Carolina wrote a $15,000 check to Assata Shakur, also known as Joanne Deborah Chesimard, a woman whom the U.S. government has identified as a convicted murderer, fugitive and domestic terrorist.
Sakura, if you will remember, killed a New Jersey State Trooper in the 1970’s. After being convicted of this heinous crime, she escaped prison and fled to Cuba were she was granted political asylum. She lives there to this day and the left has fallen in love with her for her “courage” to cowardly kill police officers.
So why exactly did NC write a check to this piece of shit? Because of this:
Shakur is one of the last Freeman family descendants sought by a private company that has purchased land near Freeman Park in Carolina Beach, North Carolina…The Superior Court of New Hanover helped negotiate a selling price for the Freeman descendants and held the company’s payment to be given to the heirs.
A superior court judge signed a court order saying it was not aware of a legal reason to withhold the payment from Shakur…and on April 3 the Superior Court Clerk of New Hanover County wrote a check to Shakur for $15,351.39.
And here’s where it gets even more maddening:
Shakur made at least one appearance in the U.S. for the land deal in May 2015 when she went to Manhattan to sign a power of attorney to her sister Beverly Goins.
Wait. Shakir is a convicted cop-killer and fugitive from justice, but she was able to stroll into a NYC lawyer’s office to do some paper work on a land deal? She’s on the the FBI’s Most Wanted List. There’s at least $2 million in rewards offered for her capture. She lives in Cuba. I have no idea how this was able to happen without the feds picking her up. How did she even get into the US in 2015? That was before Obama tried to normalize relations with the communist country.
Upon further reflection, maybe this cop-killing scumbag will have no problem cashing the check. This is truly disgusting.
Although the land deal began more than 10 years ago, the sale was delayed until this April because at first Shakur’s whereabouts was unknown, and there were multiple attempts to contact some of her family members, based on court documents the daily reviewed.
Well, one of her relatives is (was) rapper Tupak Shakur, but he’s dead. Plus, she’s in Cuba, duh.
According to the news, the FBI is looking into whether any laws were broken by issuing Shakur a check. I have a better idea: go arrest her attorney for harboring a known fugitive. Actually, the best idea of all would be to demand that Cuba hand over this terrorist cop-killer psycho.
