Good Move: Marquette University Removes Mural from School Wall That Praised Cop Killer

Finally we get a US university that makes the right decision… after allowing the wrong one to go through. The University has agreed to paint over a mural that celebrated a cop killer and communist.

Over the weekend Marquette University came under fire for having a mural in its so-called “Gender and Sexuality Resource Center” that favorably quoted cop killer and communist Assata Shakur whose real name is Joanne Chesimard.

Chesimard is on the FBI’s most wanted list for murdering a New Jersey State Trooper “execution style” in 1979. She fled to Cuba where the Obama’s pals in the Cuban government continue to shield her from justice.

Last week, with the help of Fox News’ Charlie Sykes, a mural celebrating this murderer was revealed as being featured prominently inside the university.

Here is what the mural looked like:

But after the national attention, the university now says that it “just became aware” that the mural was there and is taking it down. And they actually did so…

So, good for Marquette. They ultimately did the right thing, here. But to believe that they didn’t know it was there? No one should believe that tall tale. They got caught celebrating a murderer but ultimately did the right thing by removing the wall graffiti.
