What About Chesimard!
Police and Law Enforcement News
Monday, May 11, 2009 10:50 a.m.

As relations warm with Cuba, the same question loiters in the minds of every New Jersey law enforcement officer:  What About Chesimard!

We havenít forgotten, and we will never forget.  We want her, and weíre not going away. 


We donít want to hear, ďitís complicatedĒ or about a ďgreater national interest.Ē  Itís actually very simple, and she is our only interest.

For this issue we forgo alliances of Democrat or Republican.  For this issue, we donít care who occupies the State House or the White House.  For this issue, we are only cops.

Joanne Chesimard killed a New Jersey police officer.  From point blank range, she fired the trooperís handgun into his head.  The criminality and the selfishness of this creature forever changed the life of a mom, a little boy, and countless others.

And while many would prefer her to meet a similar fate via a lawfully conducted execution, we respect the rule of law and ask only that she serve the sentence she was given at conviction.

No, itís not complicated at all: you donít shoot cops!  And if you do, you will be hunted like an animal by an army of tens of thousands for as many years as your pathetic existence. 

Any deal, any agreement, or any concession that dilutes this message will be considered nothing less than calculated betrayal of those who serve and protect New Jersey and this nation.

I have been an officer for 5 years and this is the one story that has stuck with me all these years. I think about or at least remember this story all the time. This evil demon needs to be brought to justice so she can suffer the consequences (death).

I agree, it isn't a complicated subject. Once we get politicians involved everything becomes complicated.

She killed a cop and needs to be brought to justice. I'm glad there are people out there who have not forgotten about her and here whereabouts. I'm looking forward to the day when they bring that piece of trash to justice!

God Bless the Trooper's family.

Amen brothers. RIP Trooper Foerster you and all our fallen brothers and sisters will never be forgotten

Bring her to justice and let the courts and jury decide her fate.  God bless the trooper who lost his life. 

I agree with this article. I only hope Obama's Admin does not interfere with proper justice.

I think readers should voice their concerns on the Petition to Congress for the return of Joanne Chesimard at
