Black Panther Terrorist May Finally Be Extradited
Time is apparently running out for a Black Panther terrorist and fugitive who shot Chicago police officer, Terrence Knox and partially paralyzed him for life. Parnell may yet be returned to face justice in a Cook County Criminal courtroom.
The fugitive, Joseph Parnell was also a wanted deserter from the Army when he shot Officer Knox during a routine street stop in 1969. After his arrest Pannell posted bail and fled to Canada where he stayed underground until his arrest in 2004.
Pannel has been in a Canadian jail fighting his return to Chicago and a well earned stretch in an Illinois penitentiary.
Many readers here know that I’m somewhat benevolent about people located and arrested decades after their crimes. What makes this case different is that the Black Panthers were created and dedicated for the mission of killing White cops.
I can’t wait to see his old Black Panther pal, now Chicago Congressman Bobby Rush working for Pannel’s freedom.
