Keep Murdering Radicals in Jail


The parole-release of unrepentant terrorist Kathy Boudin, which I blogged
about a few weeks ago, has inspired some public-spirited NRO fans to launch
a permanent campaign against further releases of this kind. Their current
focus is on Sundiata Acoli, aka Clark Squire, a member of the Black
Liberation Army who shot New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster to death
on May 2nd, 1973. Acoli’s fellow murderer, Assata Shakur (aka JoAnne
Chesimard), escaped from jail in 1979 and is now living large as a guest of
Communist Cuba; Sundiata Acoli remains an unrepentent radical. He’s up for
parole January 2nd, 2004; these good people are trying to generate publicity
to make sure the parole commissioners aren’t swayed by Acoli’s supporters
and decide to pull a stunt along the lines of Boudin. You can see their
efforts here. The site includes an address for
the New Jersey State Parole Board, so you can write and urge them to keep
this lefty psychopath in jail till he rots. I urge you to do so.
