Unrepentant Guilty-as-Sin Cop Killer Mumia Abu-Jamal gets another crack at an appeal

Fox-

A former Black Panther member who was convicted in the 1981 killing of a Philadelphiapolice officer will get a chance at a new appeals hearing after a prosecutor dropped his opposition to it.

Mumia Abu-Jamal, 64, was sentenced to death for killing Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner, who had pulled his brother over during an overnight traffic stop. He was tried in absentia after attempts to serve as his own lawyer.

District Attorney Larry Krasner dropped his argument against Abu-Jamal, giving him a fresh chance at a new appeal despite arguing it could affect a large number of other convictions. Krasner agreed that then-District Attorney Ronald Castille – who presided over the Abu-Jamal case – shouldn’t have worn “two hats.”

A 1990 note Castille sent to then Gov. Robert Casey said “police killers” should get death warrants to “send a clear and dramatic message to all police killers that the death penalty actually means something.

Maureen Faulkner, David’s widow, said Krasner broke a promise to tell her about his decision before announcing it.

  1. …I think we just found the Democrats’ 2020 Presidential candidate…

    “Abu-Jamal & Michelle Obama. Let’s Finish Off America Together!”

  2. Liberal/leftists/fascists need street thugs to intimidate political opponents.

    If this murderer is released, he’ll be welcomed into the dried out bosoms of maxine waters, pelosi, or Fat Mike obama.

    RACIST! The 22nd Amendment only says The One can not be ELECTED more than twice. Vice President Barack could become President Barack, as long as he isn’t elected. You just don’t want a black(ish) man to be that close to the throne.

    “Abu-Jamal/Obama
    2020”

    (More syllables than Buttigieg/Biden!)

  5. He should be sprung from jail.

    Philly cops will give him a 5-minute head start out of the prison gates.

    Wesley Cook’s birthday is April 24th. Bury him in the ground for Earth Day.

  6. Somebody should send him clippings of Terrence Johnson’s suicide.

    Neither Johnson’s nor Abu-Jamal’s (Wesley Cook’s) death is any loss to the the Universe.
