Trenton NJ, A statement from the New Jersey State Police in response to the recent Fox News story called “Conference featuring 2020 Dems begins with fiery chant quoting fugitive cop-killer Assata Shakur”
Ridgewood even hosted a group that promoted cop killer Joanne Chesimard.
“It is an affront to every man and woman who wears the badge that someone would choose to evoke the words of a convicted cop killer and fugitive from justice at a political conference. The men and women of the New Jersey State Police will never forget the sacrifice made by Trooper Werner Foerster on May 2, 1973 nor will we forget that the person convicted of his murder remains a fugitive for nearly 40 years. We will remain steadfast, both in the pursuit of Joanne Chesimard and in the preservation of the memory of Trooper Werner Foerster, Badge #2608.”
“Gone but never forgotten.”
– Colonel Patrick Callahan, New Jersey State Police
