New York City Mayor-elect and former NYPD police officer Eric Adams swore in Keechant Sewell as the city’s next police commissioner on Wednesday in front of a mural that featured black revolutionaries, Marxists, and convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur.
Sewell inexplicably and shockingly took her oath as police commissioner during a press conference in front of a painting glorifying Malcolm X, Nat Turner, Angela Davis, Huey Newton, and Shakur. The ceremony took place at a public housing development in Long Island City, Queens, where Sewell’s family once lived, according to Fox News. She is the first woman to be a police commissioner in New York City.
“She’s the woman for the job,” Adams proclaimed at the news conference.
“She carried with her throughout her career a sledgehammer and she crushed every glass ceiling that was put in her way,” he asserted. “Today, she has crashed and destroyed the final one we need in New York City.”
“I am mindful of the historic nature of this announcement,” Sewell remarked.

Shakur was a prominent icon during the Black Lives Matter riots in 2020. She was convicted of being an accomplice in the brutal 1973 murder of New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster. He left behind a wife and his 3-year-old son. Shakur would later escape prison in 1979 and flee to Cuba where Fidel Castro granted her asylum. The left seems to idolize her.
The cop-killer was a member of the vicious Black Liberation Army, a group the FBI describes as one of “the most violent militant organizations of the 1970s.” She is now 73. Shakur is one of the multiple aliases for Joanne Deborah Chesimard.
“At the time, Chesimard was wanted for her involvement in several felonies, including bank robbery. Chesimard and her accomplices opened fire on the troopers. One trooper was wounded and the other was shot and killed execution-style at point-blank range. Chesimard fled the scene, but was subsequently apprehended. One of her accomplices was killed in the shoot-out and the other was also apprehended and remains in jail,” the FBI noted.
“In 1977, Chesimard was found guilty of first-degree murder, assault and battery of a police officer, assault with a dangerous weapon, assault with intent to kill, illegal possession of a weapon, and armed robbery. She was sentenced to life in prison. On November 2, 1979, Chesimard escaped from prison and lived underground before being located in Cuba in 1984. She is thought to currently still be living in Cuba,” the FBI contends.
Angela Davis, also depicted in the mural, is a devout communist and a civil rights activist. She has worked with the Black Panther Party and the Communist Party USA.
Police charged Davis with murder, kidnapping, and criminal conspiracy. The charges were leveled against her after police linked her to buying weapons that were used by three inmates who kidnapped a judge and juror during their trial in 1970 for snuffing a prison guard.
During the kidnapping, police killed the inmates and the judge died in the shootout. Davis made the FBI’s Most Wanted list until her capture in 1972. She then spent 16 months in prison before she was stunningly acquitted.
Davis is another icon of leftists and is symbolic of their activism which includes black liberation, anticapitalism, and feminism.
Malcolm X was a member of Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam. He was a prominent civil rights figure and promoted the freedom of black people “by any means necessary.” He was assassinated in 1965.
Huey Newton, the founder of the Black Panther Party, was convicted of manslaughter in the 1968 killing of Oakland police officer John Frey. Newton’s conviction was reversed in 1970. He was suspected of, although not charged with, killing a 17-year-old girl in 1974. Newton was murdered by a member of a Marxist-Leninist drug-dealing gang in 1989.
Nat Turner is a historical figure who led the first slave rebellion in Southampton County, Virginia, on August 21, 1831. More than 50 white people were killed during the uprising and approximately 120 slaves were killed in the aftermath.
The notorious lineup in the mural was noticed:
It’s a kind of blasphemy.

Absolutely some of the most offensive shit

What the actual fuck

There’s something incredibly wrong with this picture and wholly insulting to the memories of the people depicted in the mural.
With the exception of Nat Turner, every person memorialized in that mural has an NYPD intelligence file with surveillance notes to the FBI

it’s insulting to everyone involved

Hey @ericadamsfornyc did you know someone on the mural is a communist fugitive wanted by the FBI for terrorism?
Now you do.

The insult is the point

So the NY police is now honouring wanted terrorists. Good to know.

At least three of these “heroes” were involved in the murder of cops and/or judges. Where was this taken? Communist party headquarters?
