New York Republican Representative Anthony D’Esposito recently introduced a House resolution condemning Joanne Chesimard, a member of the Black Liberation Army, and those who celebrate her.

In an interview with Newsmax, D’Esposito explained that his legislation aims to compel lawmakers to clarify their stance on individuals like New York Democrat Representative Jamaal Bowman, who has expressed admiration for Chesimard, also known as Assata Shakur.

Chesimard was involved in the brutal murders of several New York City police officers in the early 1970s and the killing of a New York state trooper. After escaping from prison, she fled to Cuba, where she has since lived. She remains on the FBI’s Most Wanted list.

D’Esposito’s resolution urges the Biden administration to take action to extradite Chesimard to the United States to face justice for her crimes against law enforcement.

He criticized actions like Bowman’s inclusion of Chesimard on a school’s “Wall of Honor,” stating that they contribute to a culture that glorifies criminals and endangers law enforcement officers.

D’Esposito also expressed concerns about legislation at the state level, particularly under New York Governor Kathy Hochul, which he believes hampers law enforcement’s ability to effectively carry out their duties.

He praised Mayor Eric Adams for speaking out against such measures and suggested that Adams’s recent remarks align more closely with Republican positions, implying that Adams should consider switching parties to better advocate for law enforcement.

D’Esposito’s resolution seeks to hold lawmakers accountable for their support or condemnation of individuals like Chesimard, highlighting broader concerns about public safety and law enforcement’s ability to fulfill their duties effectively.
