Fry Mumia

Many people lately have been saying Mumia Abu Jamal should be set free. They are all wrong. He did it and here are many different proofs showing he did.

There were four eyewitnesses to the shooting: Robert Chobert, a cab driver, ]); Michael Scanlan, a businessman who had been visiting from out of town on the night of the killing; Cynthia White, a prostitute, and Albert Magilton, a passerby. All four of these witnesses were on the scene at the time of the shooting, and all of them identified Abu-Jamal as the person who shot Officer Faulkner. Finally, three additional witnesses, including hospital security guard Priscilla Durham and two members of the Philadelphia Police Department, testified that while Abu-Jamal was being treated for his own gunshot wound, he said that he had shot Daniel Faulkner, and hoped that the officer would die.

The physical evidence was also damaging for Abu-Jamal. A .38 handgun Abu-Jamal had purchased to defend himself as a cab driver in 1979 was found at the scene, next to Abu-Jamal, containing 5 spent shell casings. Official ballistics tests done on the fatal bullet verify that Officer Faulkner was killed by a .38 caliber bullet. The fatal .38 slug was a Federal brand Special +P bullet with a hollow base (the hollow base in a +P bullet was distinctive to Federal ammunition at that time), the exact type (+P with a hollow base), brand (Federal), and caliber (.38) of bullet found in Jamal's gun.

Even if all this doesn't convince you don't feel bad. he's not gunna die.

District Judge William Yohn overturned Mumia Abu-Jamal's death sentence on December 18, 2001 citing irregularities in the original sentencing process.


  • There is a slim chance that the DA could win their appeal of Yohn's verdict, but this is a far off chance. Since the 1970's when the death penalty was reinstated in PA only three people have been executed.
