NJ Gov. Chris Christie Wants Obama To Extradite Assata Shakur

(AllHipHop News) Who didn’t see this coming? Chris Christie has already jumped into the political furor as U.S. President Obama and Cuba’s Rubio Castro seem to be easing political tensions between the neighboring nations.

Christie, a who is vying to be Donald Trump’s running mate, has called for the extradition of Assata Shakur, an activist that was convicted of killing a New Jersey State trooper in the 1970’s. Shakur managed to escape prison and found political asylum in Cuba.

In an op-ed piece, Christie wrote, “For more than three decades, the Cuban government has given safe harbor and refuge to a domestic terrorist – a cop killer who was duly tried and convicted by a jury of her peers, sentenced to imprisonment, and who fled justice rather than pay for her crimes. Every day that she remains at large from justice has been a travesty to her victims’ families and the memory of Trooper Foerster.”

To many, Shakur has been a symbol of the injustice and criminality of the United States government which has owned up to clandestine operations like COINTELPRO. More recently, a aid to president Nixon admitted to a war against African Americans by the disgraced president.

Autumn Marie, who is a member of Black Lives Matter NYC and the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, countered Christie’s claims, citing highly ignored facts.

“There was no evidence Assata committed a crime that night. In fact the evidence and ballistics reports show otherwise. She was put in a men’s facility, her well being was not safe and she was by no means guaranteed a just trial in this country,” Marie told AllHipHop exclusively. “She has lived a peaceful existence since she arrived in Cuba and inspired people around the world with her story. She has not been a threat to anyone. The case needs to be re-examined not just to exonerate Assata but also to bring charges against the police for their excessive force and other wrong doings.”

For more, Marie encourages people to read http://assatateachin.com/factsofhecase, for facts of the case.

Last year,  a representative  for Cuba stated on the record that they would not extradite Assata.

“I can say it is off the table,” said Gustavo Machin, the deputy director for American affairs at the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Like Marie, Machin questioned the case down to the core of Assata Shakur’s 1977 criminal trial. “There are very serious doubts about that case. We consider that a politically motivated case against that lady,” Machin said last March.

Over the weekend, Chris Christie became the subject of more foolery when he was photographed double-fisting bags of M&M candy.

        Nah, but yeah, the whole Jay Z / Beyoncé trip, Hip Hop initiative by U.S. gov, easing travel & even offering to lift the embargo that has been strangling the Cuban people for 50yrs.
        Real people do real things & lifting the embargo should have been done with no questions asked, straight off the muscle.
        Houston linked an article showing War on Drugs was a war on Blacks & anti war movement.
        This is probably one of the most powerful articles he dropped so far.

        Cuba does need to be be freed up…It is unfair. America has them in shackles….

        But our government still holds a grudge and dont trust them. They are still too scared of nuclear bases so they keep starving them driving around in broken a** cars…

      • EDOGZ818

        Nah, no more Soviet Union, the grudge is the mob no longer controls Cuba through puppets (Feliguncio Baptistse ) and Castro ended that with Che Guverra & the revolution.
        Only difference between Cuba & N Korea is that Castro made it mandatory to grow food, whereas N Korea invested in weapons instead of food, that’s why grass is a delicacy.

      • Anthony Mason

        My thing about it is they did it before and would again of they could. You ever seen a starving dog?…

        Way too close to shore for us to let them do whatever relationship wise globally…

      • Anthony Mason

        Russia would love to be close to us… Putin is a Russian coon clown king…he would hug your grandma and stab her in the spine….

        You cant trust a dude who pretty much thinks he can actually wrestle bears and loves messing with China…

      • EDOGZ818

        True, but US has a non invasion Pact with Cuba, that’s why they don’t go grab Assata now.
        As in Ukraine & other breakaways & Putin is losing to much power to flex with Cuba.

      • Anthony Mason

        On another note I think HAARP in Alaska has something to do with defense through causing “natural disasters”. Russia is well aware too…

        They kept those b!tches running for 60 years too. Salute to Cubano perseverance.

        BTW, The West has fvcked Haiti way harder than they ever did Cuba.

      • Anthony Mason

        They have survived in Cuba because they are so multiracial and community based and forced to have ingenuity. In America, rich people don’t f*** with poor people and even some middle class. Nose up at all times….

        With that said, we in America need to start uplifting eachother people before our middle class slides into the Mariana trench….real s***

      • Q.

        I think we’ve already passed the tipping point on that one, bro…That’s like asking corporations to stop being greedy.

      • EDOGZ818

        95-96
        If it wasn’t Jordan…it was Reggie Miller…or Charles Oakly missing 3 layups under the basket instead of dunking!

    • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      I remember every easter when Anthony Mason played for the Knicks he would come out to Queens and play pick up with the lil niccas. i always remember that because i didnt have a father to teach me to play ball. no matter where im at on easter i remember that grade school memories just before spring break. RIP A. MASON.

      • The City

        Bytchnigga nobody gives AF about your life!!! Fvck you look’n for some kind of Hallmark moment or some shyt…foh!

  1. PeoplePlease7

    Salute to Assata Shakur and may Chris Christie continue eating his way into a heart attack. US providing refuge to terrorist Luis Posada Carriles (Cuban) , this is political posturing,,,,

  2. Papi Peligro

    So how many Americans does Cuba Wang for the same reason. Someone tell Donald Trump tell this ninja to sit down.

  3. Black Jay Supreme

    She’ll get a pardon before Obama leaves office. Guaranteed. The only people that want to see her in jail are White politicians trying to get shine off of her name. Unlike dumb ass C Murder, this lady will get a pardon. I’d put money on that.

  4. Larry Sandwiches

    If she killed the cop, i hope she gets extraited and locked up forever…

    If she didnt do it, well, sucks to be her then…

      • Larry Sandwiches

        I care very much. Its more personal to me than you could ever know.

        That being said, i still aint down with someone who kills cops either.

      • Phillip Fuller

        Go back and read the history of this story . Then you will see the truth and not what some old fat whites guy is telling you. And you will see why their so he’ll bent on getting her back.

      • Larry Sandwiches

        I cant tell if youre looking for an argument where there is none. If she didnt do it, that sucks. I wish she could just come back to the US. Cuba blows. But if she did do it, i hope she rots in prison for it.

      • Q.

        Assata is 68 and will die a free woman. Cuba has universal healthcare and a higher literacy rate than the U.S. We have smartphones and reality TV…they have dignity.

      • Q.

        What’s retarded…the freedom, healthcare, literacy, or dignity??

      • Larry Sandwiches

        If she gets pardoned, she’ll come back to the US in a heartbeat.

      • Q.

        At this point, I doubt that. She’s lived her life and beat the odds. She’s a hero.

      • Larry Sandwiches

        Let me ask you this:
        If she did kill that trooper, would you like to see her still “free” in Cuba?

      • Q.

        That’s a moot question, because she didn’t… Read the history on the case.

      • Larry Sandwiches

        The history and news is old. We all know it. There is NOTHING in any of it that proves one way or the other if she did it or not.
        If she’s innocent, I hope she gets pardoned and can come back to the life she fled from. It sucks if she’s lived in exile for nothing.

        But if she did do it, she deserves to rot. Simple as that.

        Dont know why im getting flak for this thought process….

      • Q.

        The history is out there, but we all are not aware. Given the facts, I believe in Assata’s innocence. The State has deemed her a terrorist–why would I take the State’s word when they’ve admitted to their own brand of domestic terrorism against the Black Panthers? The same parties doing the accusing here have confirmed blood on their hands.

        You’re talking about who needs to rot in prison. We need to re-examine what the nature of Justice is.

      • Larry Sandwiches

        But youre ignoring the other side of what I said. If she’s innocent it still sucks to be her, because she spent her whole life now in exile. Hopefully she’s pardoned and can come home. But it still sucks that so much time was lost.

        Do you not think cop killers should rot in jail?

      • Q.

        Yeah, to say that what happened to her sucks is an understatement. Exile seemed the better alternative of her options. You ask, don’t I think copkillers should rot in jail? I could easily flip that question and ask, do you not think killer cops should rot in jail?? I don’t value a cop’s life above any other human being. An officer’s life is not the standard of sacredness for me. Any unjust killing should face justice. So what are you really asking?

      • Larry Sandwiches

        I absolutley believe killer cops should rot in jail, and am disgusted that they dont. I hate that these mother f–kers arent AT LEAST being indicted.
        I was just asking that simple question. Im pretty sure we agree on all of this then.

      • Larry Sandwiches

        I think your posts are funny bro. I see you on the threads. Its a great gimmick. But you cant be the class goof ball then be taken seriously.

      • MURDER 2.0

        Im not being funny, someone got man down’d in your family, cause you sound like you have vendetta against ms. Shakur. Who was it?

      • Larry Sandwiches

        I guess you missed the parts (since my very first post) where I said how sh!tty it is for her if she is innocent and has had to live in exile her whole life. I guess you missed all that.

      • Larry Sandwiches

        Well im glad we cleared that up and are in agreement then. Ill go back to reading this comicbook, and you go back to wipin out the honkeys sir.

  5. Q.

    Chris Christie should worry about extraditing the 30 lbs of compacted brisket that’s been rotting in his colon since 1981.That fat fvck wouldn’t kill anything but the all-you-can-eat buffet at OCB.
