  1. I’m a bit confused on why this is released now…she escaped in 1979 and was spotted in Cuba in 1984….thats 36 years since this post has her last spotted…

  2. Terrorist? Really?
    Sooo am I supposed to fly to Cuba in a pandemic?
    Give a life sentence the terrorists of that extremist group called cops that killed Breonna Taylor; and then I’ll see what I can do.
    Stop digging up old news for clickbait. There’s enough to report on already.
    Let this woman live her free life in peace.

  3. She never pulled the trigger she was convicted just like 1000’s of others because of her skin color

  4. By the way, we all have seen, in many instances, law enforcement behaving inappropriately on camera depriving black and brown people of their rights. In this case, I was not there I did not see it, so I can’t just go off of just the account of the police. I need to see more evidence. What we need to do is…Arrest Donald Trump for cheating on his taxes and knowing about a lethal scourge and telling people, COVID is a hoax, thus 200,000 American citizens losing their lives.

  5. Unfortunately, COPS LIE everyday on black and brown people. I hope she stays Free for the rest of her life just like the COP KILLERS who kill innocent unarmed citizens DO! How bout them apples?

  6. Why???? Just like she let that Trooper live??? She is with people that she loves, did that Trooper get to go home and see his loved ones that night???? I didn’t think so.

  7. Now that’s funny!!! Maybe Donald J Trump should send the proper authorities to come lock you up for defrauding your local and state government and you know what I’m talking about!!! Maybe Donald J Trump is the New Teflon Don!!!!

  8. You do know that if you are part of a murder you can be red white and blue and you will be found guilty?

  9. These shameless cops need to be convicted of murder.
    Joanne should remain free because she was wrongly convicted. Power to the People.

  10. The same way these low life cops kill our innocent people. For every black person kill by these racist cops, the only way to stop it is to kill one of their family members. I guarantee this will stop.

  11. So now I guess every person killed by a cop is murder and unjustified? For all of u that think this they need to put your asses in a straight jacket. It may come as a surprise to u all but there are actually real and dangerous criminals that would not give a 2nd thought about killing ANYBODY. That includes killing all u idiots. Only a small fraction are bad cops. If someone threatens your life who ya gonna call? Fuckin morons u all are

  12. You are an idiot her skin color has nothing to do with why she is going to serve a life sentence it’s from murder you dumb ass

  13. If BLM so much y are there more black on black murders no one seems to care about that who are you going to call when you need help ghost busters

  14. No matter what color you are, if a cop says stop, freeze or whatever, do as you’re told and you’ll be fine. If not you’ll suffer the consequences.

  15. I’m glad she escaped and ain’t nobody helping y’all find her do ya own job, go to Cuba and try to get her so they can terrorize y’all dummies

  16. I agree Brian. I just hope and pray that when she’s caught again that this time they do to her what she deserves… A bullet in the head works nice…

  17. Why do you people think like that when you don’t know or have a clue as to what took place,try looking into shit before you run off with the stit you are talking

  18. What about the white people the kill? Which is many more than blacks killed by cops. You are the real racist, and probably as smart as your shoe.

  19. These people have trouble with civilization. They dont like to follow rules, or act decently in public or personally. Lack of common sense, or intelligence, or maybe a love of rioting and looting explains their actions all over the country. The riots only made the racial stigma worse for themselves. Dumb cops are everywhere, some could be nasty and heartless, and in the end, cops are people too, and subject to making mistakes, especially in dangerous situations. More whites are harrasses and killed by cops. I doubt the chouvin cop was racist, or just a jerk in general.
