NJ Authorities Want Assata Shakur Back From Cuba to Finish Life Sentence

What is your opinion on this? I think the “statue of limitations” should be past on this case IF there is such a thing for something like this. Just let her carry on the rest of her days in Cuba but just not come back to the U.S.

“On Wednesday President Obama announced that he was easing some of the United States’ 50-year restrictions against Cuba, and shortly after that announcement, the focus for some people shifted to what a new Cuba-U.S. relationship might mean for Assata Shakur. Shakur, who has become a kind of vigilante folk hero in the black community, was set to serve a life sentence for the killing of a New Jersey state trooper in 1973. After being sentenced in 1977, she escaped prison and has reportedly been living in Cuba.”
