This is important, she was the one who was convicted of killing an NJ state trooper and her extradition was greatly pursued.

Nehanda Abiodun, 68, Black Revolutionary Who Fled to Cuba, Dies
By Daniel E. Slotnik
    Feb. 8, 2019

Nehanda Abiodun, a radical black nationalist who was charged in the deadly botched robbery of a Brink’s armored truck in 1981 and then spent decades as a fugitive in Cuba, a hero to would-be revolutionaries and a criminal to many others, died on Jan. 30 at her home in Havana. She was 68.

...

Self-described revolutionaries belonging to the Weather Underground and the Black Liberation Army committed a rash of domestic bombings and hijackings in the 1960s and ’70s in what they called resistance to the United States government. Ms. Abiodun (pronounced ah-BEE-oh-dun) was suspected of conspiring with members of both groups.

The radicals were charged with attacks against government targets and with helping another revolutionary, Assata Shakur (who was known as Joanne Chesimard before choosing an African name), escape in 1979 from an upstate New York prison. Ms. Shakur had been convicted in the killing of a New Jersey state trooper in a shootout in 1973. The groups supported their activities with armed robberies.

A piece of trash who is responsible for killing several innocent people in a botched holdup isn't a 'criminal to many'. They're just a criminal.

May she burn in hell.
