Thirty years almost to the day after a clot of scum named Mumia Abu-Jamal executed Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner, the disgusting liberal-infested farce that passes for our justice system has officially declared the obvious: despite being found guilty of a capital crime, the moonbat heart-throb Abu-Jamal will never face the punishment he so richly deserves.
Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams announced [Wednesday] morning he will not seek the death penalty against Mumia Abu-Jamal.
Williams said that he saw no point in triggering another two or three decades of appeals.
“Every reviewing court has found the trial fair and the guilty verdict sound,” he said. “…Our best remaining option is to let Mr. Abu-Jamal to die in prison.”
Friday marks 30 years since Abu-Jamal’s arrest for the murder of Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner, who was on patrol Dec. 9, 1981 when he was gunned down. A jury unanimously handed down a guilty verdict the following year, and Abu-Jamal was sentenced to death.
Since then the former public radio employee Abu-Jamal has lived as a pampered celebrity behind bars, recording commencement addresses for various colleges (including UC Berkeley, unsurprisingly). NPR wanted to pay him with our money to record commentary for All Things Considered. In France, moonbats actually named a street after him.
No serious person doubts his guilt. But progressives doubt it is a bad thing for a dreadlock-wearing black Marxist to sneak up behind a white police officer and shoot him in the back.
There is only one life form lower than Abu-Jamal: the comfy politically correct liberals who continue to agitate for his release even as Officer Faulkner’s bones crumble in the ground. There is also only one positive outcome likely to result from Barack Hussein Obama being reelected. It would put off by four years the day Jamal is pardoned altogether and set free to shoot more police officers (as he promised he would do) and/or deliver his commencement addresses in person.
