Trenton NJ, New Jersey State Police , “On this day forty-six years ago, Trooper Werner Foerster made the ultimate sacrifice in service to his fellow troopers and the citizens of our State. As an organization, we ensure that every trooper, past and present, honored with wearing the blue and gold uniform of a New Jersey State Trooper remembers the life and death of Trooper Foerster, but it is equally important that the public also remembers,” said Colonel Patrick Callahan of the New Jersey State Police. “Our pursuit of Joanne Chesimard will not cease until she is returned to New Jersey to serve out the remainder of her prison sentence for the brutal murder of Trooper Werner Foerster. We owe it to the Foerster family, the State Police Family, and every family member who has suffered the devastating loss of a loved one killed in the line of duty.”

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

Trenton NJ, In response to a poster for airline JetBlue’s Black History Month campaign “honoring” Joanne Chesimard, who was convicted of murdering New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster in 1973, Assemblywoman Angelica Jimenez released the following statement. Chesimard escaped from prison in 1979 and fled to Cuba, where she remains at large.

            “There’s no place in Black History Month, or any month for that matter, for us to pay tribute to a convicted murderer,” said Jimenez (D-Bergen, Hudson). “Joanne Chesimard made a career out of seeking out police officers to harm or even kill, and she tragically took the life of one of our brave state troopers. And as a woman of Cuban descent, it’s devastating to know she has been able to live free under political asylum in Cuba for decades. Chesimard does not belong on a poster or a pedestal. She belongs in an American prison. JetBlue’s actions were insensitive and extremely disrespectful to the heroic men and women in law enforcement and Trooper Foerster’s family. I’d like to express my full support for the New Jersey State Police and their outstanding efforts to honor Trooper Foerster’s memory and keep our communities safe.”

Ridgewood NJ, at the “Anti Hatred/Anti Violence” candlelight vigil the Ridgewood Police reported “No” incidents during the peaceful assembly of several hundred local residents. Again not really sure one would have reasonably expected any.

In addition to Chief Luthcke, Ridgewood Tax payers paid at least five (5) other Ridgewood Police members were observed in active service during the event.

Interesting to note one the participants “Anti Hatred/Anti Violence” candlelight vigil was the People’s Organization for Progress or POP for short. A group looking to have cop killer Joanne Chesimard removed from the Most Wanted Terrorists List. Know we know why the police presence .

The People’s Organization for Progress (POP) is an independent, grassroots, community based, politically progressive (communist) association of citizens working for racial, social and economic justice and greater unity in the community.

The main purpose of POP is to work for the immediate improvement of conditions in our community and the fundamental transformation off this country towards a more just society…..hummm through Communism , didnt learn anything from North Korea or Venezuela I guess.

from their website :

The People’s Organization For Progress (POP) is calling a MARCH FOR REPARATIONS: A march to demand Reparations for African Americans from the United States government for the enslavement of our African ancestors. The march is scheduled to take place a year from now on Saturday, June 24, 2017, 12 noon in Newark, New Jersey.

On July 6th, the People’s Organization for Progress participated in a press conference and rally in support of beleaguered Essex County College professor Lisa Durden, who was recently suspended and then terminated  for a recent appearance on Fox Five in a debate segment on The Black Lives Matter Movement.

The People’s Organization For Progress (POP) calls upon the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to remove Assata Shakur (Joanne Chesimard) from its Most Wanted Terrorists List.  She does not belong on the list because Ms. Shakur was never charged nor convicted of an act of domestic or international terrorism.

Is the mayor or the police supporting this ? Are residents supporting this ?

Ridgewood NJ, President Trump pushed changes in US /Cuba policy , “To the Cuban government, I say: Put an end to the abuse of dissidents,” Trump said in Miami. “Release the political prisoners. Stop jailing innocent people. Open yourselves to political and economic freedoms. Return the fugitives from American justice — including the return of the cop-killer Joanne Chesimard.”

NJ State Police Colonel Fuentes’ Statement Regarding President Trump’s Administration New Policy Toward Cuba

“Just listened with great interest to President Donald Trump’s Miami speech on his Administration’s new policy towards Cuba. On behalf of all the men and women of the New Jersey State Police, I am grateful for his recognition and deep concern that Cuba continues to harbor this country’s most wanted cop killers and domestic terrorists. I am more hopeful than ever for the return of Joanne Chesimard to the United States to complete her term of imprisonment for the 1973 murder of Trooper Werner Foerster.”
