The leading network for sports fans, ESPN, posted a poem on their website, celebrating a fugitive cop killer. Assata Shakur is a domestic terrorist on the FBI’s Most Wanted List and a member of hate groups (classified by the Southern Poverty Law Center) such as “the New Black Panther Party” and “the Black Liberation Army.”
Ignorant ESPN writer DaMaris B. Hill a professor at the University of Kentucky, considers Shakur a “feminist” that needs to be celebrated with poems, despite the fact that she is wanted for the 1973 shooting of New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster. The cop killer was serving a prison sentence, but escaped in 1979 and fled to Cuba. Shakur received political asylum in Cuba and has been there since the late 1980’s. There is a $2 million reward for this dangerous cop killers capture.
ESPN was flooded with criticism for celebrating an evil, hate filled, cop killer and yanked the tribute from their site. Many people were shaking their heads at the disgusting display and even scratching their heads… What does this hate filled murderer have to do with sports? No wonder ESPN had to lay off hundreds of employees this week because of a loss of subscribers. People go to ESPN.com for coverage of sports, not poems dedicated to a domestic terrorist and cop killer that is on the FBI’s Most Wanted list.
