Police Organizations Slam NY College for Honoring Cop-Killer, Terrorist
By Jim Kouri

Move over, Mumia. City College of New York has named its student community room after cop-killer Assata Shakur, convicted in the 1973 murder of New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster. Several police organizations are up in arms over a taxpayer-funded college honoring a cop-killer and domestic terrorist.

"The cowardly school administration at the City College of New York have allowed a student community room to be named in honor of a domestic terrorist and cop-killer," said officials from the National Association of Chiefs of Police in a statement.

"You can bet your life they'd never allow the center to be called The Jesus Christ Community Center."

The New York City college students who share the community room named for the escaped cop killer Assata Shakur proclaimed their love for the fugitive murderer. Members of seven campus groups also commended the school administration for allowing them to work in the name of a domestic "terrorist" now believed to be hiding in Cuba.

"And we consider her a hero and role model for standing up for our people and putting her life on the line."

The Guillermo Morales/Assata Shakur Community Center on the third floor of CCNY's North Academic Center was named for Shakur, convicted in the 1973 murder of New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster, and Morales, a former member of the FALN, which is a Puerto Rican liberation group that claimed responsibility for a rash of bombings in New York in the mid-1970s that killed and maimed police officers.

President Bill Clinton pardoned FALN members when his wife Hillary began her senatorial campaign in 2000 and she wanted the Hispanic vote.
"We use tax dollars to support an institution that indemnifies a cold-blooded terrorist?" Dave Jones, president of the New Jersey State Troopers Fraternal Association, told the Daily News.

"She's a cowardly, cold-blooded convicted murderer who's part of a murdering sect," he told the newspaper. "She's no different from those people who flew those planes into those towers and destroyed all those innocent lives."

In 2005, the FBI named Shakur, whose real name is Joanne Deborah Chesimard, to its list of most wanted domestic terrorists, placing a $1 million bounty on her head. In 1977, Shakur was convicted of Foerster's murder during a routine traffic stop.

Shakur has been heralded as a hero among the hip-hop community — Tupac Shakur was her Godchild — and political activist groups, and reviled as a villain by police organizations. To cops she's nothing but a lowlife cop-killer.

The school issued a statement to the Daily News:

"This is not the college or the administration's idea of a good name for this room, but we believe the university is a place to discuss and argue ideas, some of which are not widely supported," school spokeswoman Mary Lou Edmondson told the Daily News. The school has no plans to rename the room.

But police officials say this is the standard tripe given whenever universities are caught doing the outrageous.

"I hardly believe they would name a center the Adolf Hitler community room and defend it as a place to discuss and argue ideas. Ms. Edmondson is an apologist for cop-killers and terrorists," wrote the 14,000-member NACOP in response.

And on it goes. I have to wonder if the powers that be ever think to themselves, "Hey, maybe we're pushing it too far here. Maybe whites are going to wake up and realize that if their tax dollars are going to fund a center named for a murdering black-power activist, they are truly out of power in this society. And upon waking up, it'll be hell for us."

Nah. Whites don't want to be "racist." They'd rather be shot to death in the street by Assata Shakur than called THAT.

Is there something wrong when the people of a community embrace a cop-killer because the fact of the crime is lost in racist rhetoric? The very second somebody played the black card, this issue quit being about a criminal committing murder to some obviously VERY stupid sheeple.

Too mucking futch!

These people are OVER THE EDGE.

This should NOT be allowed to stand, the people of New York should demand, that the name be changed, perferably to the name of the murdered police officer, and that all involved in the naming of the room, and those that allowed it to take place, be kicked off the campus, and the staff fired.

I think that about covers it,........:cuckoo:
