Mumia Abu-Jamal Loses Pa. High Court Appeal

April 03, 2012  | 

Mumia Abu-Jamal, whose conviction in the slaying of a Philadelphia police officer became a major battleground of the 20th century's racial divide, has lost his latest appeal to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

In an order dated March 26, the state high court announced that it was affirming a lower court order in the case; the lower court had rejected Abu-Jamal’s complaint that some aspects, including forensic evidence, were unfairly handled.

WHY IS THIS GUY STILL ALIVE? HANG HIM HIGH! END OF STORY!

Please hurry up a execute this guy. It has been way too long for this officer's family. Plus when it happens, it will give Sharpton and Jackson something else to spew about.

Sorry, Chris & Hank, this POS will not be executed. The only appeal he has won was on incorrect jury instructions. Faced with either a re-trial or allowing the sentence to automatically be commuted to life without parole, the Philly DA talked with Maureen Faulkner, Danny Faulkner's widow, and it was decided to allow it to go to life without parole. OF course POS Jamal will continue with his never ending appeals. Be sure to check out the list of his supporters and boycott them (i.e. Ben & Jerry's) if you feel that is right.

The Hollywood idiots and all the media publicity didn't help the scumbag. I guess they didn't sell enough T-shirts. Wasting more taxpayers money, we sure know how to do that.

As corrections officer here in Pa prior to going back on the road. I was a CO at the prison were this POS is. ANd let me tell you he walks around like he owns the place and ever other POS inmate thinks he is god. I just wanted to through him into the razor wire.
