Marquette University honors ’70s cop-killer, prison escapee Assata Shakur with mural

The Assata Shakura mural

It was just a couple of weeks ago that Twitchy reported on a disturbing new fashion trend among #BlackLivesMatter demonstrators: the emergence of the “ASSATA TAUGHT ME” protest hoodie, celebrating ’70s cop-killer Assata Shakur.

In a 2013 column, Michelle Malkin gave a primer on cop-killing radicals fetishized by the Left, including Shakur, née Joanne Chesimard, who in 1973 shot and killed New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster execution-style during a traffic stop. She was sentenced to life in 1977, but escaped from prison two years later with help from violent left-wing accomplices and now lives in Cuba as a political asylee.

As Twitchy wrote at the time, “What exactly has Assata taught protesters? That cop-killing pays”…

More at Twitchy. The mural is at the university’s Gender and Sexuality Resource Center.
