    Part II Troy Davis, Mumia Abu-Jamal, Family Finances

    in Legal

    Troy Davis was murdered by the state of Georgia. Troy Davis was wrongfully convicted of  the murder of an off-duty policeman in Savannah, Georgia. The U.S. Supreme Court denied a last-minute stay of execution amid widespread public doubts about his guilt. Davis, 42, died weeks before his 43rd birthday. His lethal injection murder came after a four-hour delay for legal review. There was #TooMuchDoubt to execute Troy Davis. Sign This White House Petition  http://tinyurl.com/3zf25rh
    On October 11, 2011 the LA Times reported that "The Supreme Court cleared the way Tuesday for  Mumia Abu-Jamal to have a new jury decide whether he should be resentenced to death or to life in prison.
    The high court left in place, rulings that set aside Abu-Jamal’s death sentence in a case that has drawn international attention since the 1980s."
    These are high profile cases with limited media attention. The families of  other wrongfully convicted inmates experience many financial difficulties while supporting incarcerated loved ones. We will discuss a method of making finances available for family members.

    THE FRAMING OF MUMIA ABU-JAMAL and CRIME MAGAZINE-J. Patrick O'Conner

    in Entertainment

    In this account of the trial of controversial death row inmate Mumia Abu-Jamal, O'Connor, editor and publisher of crimemagazine.com, clearly lays out his case that Abu-Jamal should receive at least a new trial, if not complete exoneration. O'Connor asserts that Abu-Jamal was framed for the 1981 murder of police officer Daniel Faulkner because of a vendetta by Philadelphia mayor Frank Rizzo and the police due to Abu-Jamal's defense, as a journalist, of the cultish countercultural group MOVE. Relying heavily on court transcripts and prior books on the case, O'Connor shows what he sees as the judge's bias, troubled relations between Abu-Jamal and his defense lawyer and dubious statements by various witnesses. Abu-Jamal was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to death; later overturned, the sentence could still be reinstated pending a decision by the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. Now in the wake of Faulkner's widow's recent book alleging Abu-Jamal's guilt, it has made it more difficult to be swayed entirely by O'Connor's arguments, but he makes a strong case that the investigation into Faulkner's murder deserves another look.

    MUMIA ABU JAMAL HOUR PT1

    in Music

    Mumia Abu-Jamal (born Wesley Cook on April 24, 1954) is an American who was convicted and sentenced to death for the December 9, 1981 murder of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner.He has been described as "perhaps the best known Death-Row prisoner in the world", and his sentence is one of the most debated today.
    Before his arrest he was a member of the Black Panther Party, an activist, part-time cab driver, journalist, radio personality, news commentator and broadcaster.
    Since his conviction, his case has received international attention and he has become a controversial cultural icon. Supporters and opponents disagree on the appropriateness of the death penalty, whether he is guilty, or whether he received a fair trial. During his imprisonment he has published several books and other commentaries, notably Live from Death Row.

    Since 1995, Abu-Jamal has been incarcerated at Pennsylvania's SCI Greene near Waynesburg, where most of the state’s capital case inmates are held. In 2008, a three-judge panel of the U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the murder conviction, but ordered a new capital sentencing hearing over concerns that the jury was improperly instructed. In April 2009, the United States Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal for a new trial, allowing his July 1982 conviction to stand. A separate appeal by prosecutors to reinstate the death penalty has not yet been heard.

    Defense case at trial

    The defense maintained that Abu-Jamal was innocent of the charges and that the testimony of the prosecution's witnesses was unreliable.
    The jury delivered a unanimous guilty verdict after three hours of deliberations.

    Since the sentence, new claims contradicting the trial evidence have surfaced.

    The CIA Torture Report: It’s the American Way

    in Culture

    Global Peeks looks at US repression, persecution and some lessons in the struggle against it in light of the police onslaught of Black people & the newly released Senate Report on the CIA interrogation of political prisoners at various sites across the world. We would hear Historic lessons & commentary by Political Prisoner Mumia Abu Jamal, Activist Pam Africa & others as well as music of consciousness & revolution.


    SUPPORT THIS ISSUE: Defeat Pennsylvania Senate Bill 508 – signed by Governor Tom Corbett – which prohibits prisoners and those formerly incarcerated from speaking publicly. The law targets journalists, non-profits and individuals who aid prisoners in communicating to the outside world.


    This law is designed to stop the commentaries of Mumia Abu Jamal from being recorded and aired to the outside world.  Protect the First Amendment right to free speech.
