 FBI Puts $2M Price on Head of BLA ‘Terrorist’ Cop Killer Assata Shakur Who Fled to Cuba She is Aunt to Rapper Tupac ShakurJoanne Chesimard, who killed a New Jersey cop 40 years ago today, then  escaped prison and fled to Cuba, has been labeled a terrorist and had a $2  million bounty put on her by the FBI, authorities said Thursday. Chesimard was serving a life term for killing a New Jersey state trooper in  1973 when she escaped prison. After hiding out in a New Jersey safe house for  several years, Chesimard managed to flee in 1979 to Cuba, where she has been  living for decades under the name Assata Shakur. “Joanne Chesimard is a domestic terrorist,” Aaron T. Ford, special agent in  charge of the FBI’s Newark division, said at a press conference Thursday. “She  absolutely is a threat to America.”

Chesimard, a member of the radical Black Liberation Army, shot and killed New  Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster execution-style on May 2, 1973, after she  and two others were pulled over for a routine traffic stop on the New Jersey  Turnpike, about an hour south of New York City. Chesimard, 26 at the time, was already known by the FBI for her involvement  in the Black Panther movement. She had changed her name to Shakur and was now a  leader of the Black Liberation Army — one of the most violent militant black  organizations of the 1970s. She was wanted in connection with a string of  felonies, including bank robberies in New York, see linkhttp://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/05/02/fbi-in-nj-to-announce-cuba-fugitive-case-details/#ixzz2SA0Po9HH
Assata Olugbala Shakur and the Black Liberation Army that killed 13 cops between 1968 and 1973 and then again in 1981, she is the aunt of Rapper Tupac Shakur.  The  Black Liberation Army (BLA) was active in the US until at least 1981 when a Brinks truck robbery, conducted with support from Weather Underground members Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert, left a guard and two police officers dead. Boudin and Gilbert, along with several BLA members, were subsequently arrested.
