It was 25 years ago Friday that Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner was gunned down in Center City by Mumia Abu Jamal. Faulkner’s widow will mark the anniversary by honoring District Attorney Lynn Abraham at the Union League, while Abu Jamal and his supporters continue to press for the death row inmate's release. Here is a look back at the events on December 8th, 1981.

Jamal needs to be given the Tookie treatment already.

Whatever happened with the case to change his sentence to life instead of the death sentence? I seem to remember that a judge ruled a stay and had ordered a review and there was a 6 month window in which he would have to have his sentence either upheald or changed. I never heard the outcome. This article says that there are people trying to get him realeased from death row but I'm not certain he's still on death row.

Screw the cop, let's try to free the life of a thug who should have assumed 212 degrees Fahrenheit instead. Typical liberalism.

God grant Maureen Faulkner serenity, since the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania seems determined to deny her justice.

He never went to college. He somehow networked himself with the liberal intelligentsia by covering the MOVE looney tunes and involving himself with other extreme left wing groups like the Black Panthers and another group to legalize pot..

He eventually got fired from PBS because he was basically a stoned out nut job who could not get along with anybody..

His real name is Wesley Cook. He's a cold blooded murderer. That's his real achievement. The SOB has earned notoriety by conning people into thinking he's the victim of Da Man. In truth, he took a human life and should have paid 25 years ago for his crime.

"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." -Manuel II Paleologus
