It’s a cold day here in the Philly burbs, and as I sit here I am reminded of what happened 25 years ago today. Wesley Cook, a.k.a. Mumia Abu Jamal Murdered Officer Daniel Faulkner in cold blood. I will not give Mumia or his supporters the time of day; suffice to say that it would be a disservice to the Faulkner family. I knew Danny’s brother Kenny, and talked with him at length about his brother’s murder. Kenny passed away without seeing justice served as in Mumia being executed.
Some may respond to this post as being racist. The only thing racist here is that certain groups labeled the trial that a long time ago and continue to support a murderer. PERIOD.
FACT: Wesley Cook (a.k.a. Mumia Abu Jamal) shot Officer Daniel Faulkner, killing him.
FACT: Wesley Cook (a.k.a. Mumia Abu Jamal) was CONVICTED of this murder.
FACT: Wesley Cook (a.k.a. Mumia Abu Jamal) will die someday, and he will be judged by God and sentenced to rot in hell for the rest of eternity.
R.I.P. Danny and Kenny.
