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.
