This Friday marks the 24 year anniversary of Philadelphia police officer Daniel J. Faulkner’s murder by Wesley Cook, better known as Mumia Abu-Jamal. Several web sites are all for Mumia’s release, not happy enough that the scumbag’s death sentence has been put on hold. Mumia Abu-Jamal is a big cause for various Actors, Musicians and other “Anti death penalty” supporters. He even claims he is a political prisoner! Make one thing clear. The evidence against Mumia is mountainous. The man was convicted in a court of law. He deserves to die for his heinous crime of shooting a man point blank in the face after first shooting him in the back!
Here’s a quote from Maureen Faulkner, Danny’s Widow.”After listening to six weeks of ballistics, the evidence, the eyewitness testimony, there was absolutely no doubt in my mind that it was Mumia Abu-Jamal murdered my husband.” I heard several stories about people threatening Maureen, all because she took a stand against the “Free Mumia” fanatics. Some even called for phyicial harm! On a personal note, I was very good friends with Danny’s brother Kenny, who just recently passed away. Kenny tended bar years ago at Pops Barrel Inn, not too far from my old stomping grounds. Every time something would come up on TV about “Free Mumia” etc, he would just shake his head. The stress that the Faulkner family has had to endure all these years must be overwhelming, and in my eyes, contributed to Ken’s death.
So what has Mumia been doing all these years? Well let’s see. He’s still alive. He has managed to write a few books, gain the support of misled people, become an honory Parisian, and is a poster boy for every liberal minded, extreme cause you can think of. Mumia is not the Angel he is made out to be. He was one of the founding members of the Black Panther Party in Philly who were affiliated with the ones who killed Officer Frank Von Colin in 70′ BTW, I was close enough to hear the shots that night, as I grew up in Cobbs Creek. Later he became a Move member and a “Radio Personality”. I say he grew up a radical moron with a chip on his shoulders. I will not go any further at the risk of being labeled a “Racist” by you bleeding hearts. Just read the facts and you”ll see that Mumia is guilty of cold blooded murder, and deserves the same fate.
