President Obama's decision to normalize relations with Cuba has raised questions about the 70 or so fugitives believed to be hiding out in Cuba. That includes cop killer Joanne Chesimard, who has been hiding in plain sight in Cuba after she escaped from 1979.
Joanne 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.
