Newsbusters ^ | 12/06/07 | Geoffrey Dickens

When the widow of the slain police officer killed by Mumia Abu-Jamal appeared on the Thursday "Today" show to promote her new book, NBC's Matt Lauer seemed to take up the cause of the convicted cop killer as he asked Maureen Faulkner mostly skeptical questions like: "Do you ever allow yourself to consider the fact that perhaps he didn't do this?"

Yes please, I’d like to drop him a note, the leftist-millionaire-brainwashed-elitist-moron. What an irresponsible and insensitive pig! You don’t do that to a grieving widow, and I don’t care if it was 100 years ago, you DON’T DO THAT!

“Matt Lauer, do you ever allow yourself to consider the fact that perhaps he did?”

I caught a couple of minutes with her and her attorney (?) on Glen Beck this morning. The attorney said that Philly’s mayor Street was a councilman back then and tried to dissuade a witness from fingering “Mumia”.

A good read. The second to the last paragraph starts as such; “To believe the story of innocence one has to buy into a conspiracy involving hundreds of people.” I immediately thought of O.J. Simpson.

And 9/11.

Is this the same MSM that throws a tizzy fit about Ann Coulter attacking 9/11 widows?

Hopefully the cops in the Hamptons (where he most likely has a home . . .I mean summer home) will see this and stop patrolling his house at night. And if he’s a victim of a crime - myabe he’ll think twice about these individuals that protect and defend on a daily basis in a mostly thankless fashion.

But I am asking a lot from these media morons . . . he and Couric can go to hell.

If that was his empty question, he is an ignorant idiot. Mumia was observed by at least one eyewitness, who watched as Mumia shot the officer, was shot in return, fell in the street, was placed in a squad car and then identified by that same eyewitness on the spot, who never lost sight of Mumia throughout the entire incident.

Case closed.

Lauer and other leftists are disgusting. They are so convinced that all “minorities” are the oppressed people, that they give them a free pass to MURDER!

Do you ever allow yourself to consider the fact that perhaps he didn't do this?"

Does Lauer ever allow himself to consider the fact that he is a male version of the dumb blond who lucked into the job of a lifetime seconds before his looks and his hair line disappeared?

Nope, He'll just rant and rave about how they're too busy harassing poor innocent people like Mumia to do their job.... It takes intelligence to connect the dots, not much, but more than he has....

____________________________

Mr. Abu-Jamal also confessed his guilt in front of witnesses. And his own brother was a witness who was never called by the defense.

This case is as certain as it comes, the only thing they didn’t have was to get it on videotape.

Abu-Jamal’s appeals have all been on technicalities, he has never testified even once that he didn’t do it.
