PHILADELPHIA Prosecutors announced Wednesday that they will no longer pursue the death penalty against former Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal, meaning he will spend the rest of his life in prison for gunning down a white police officer nearly 30 years ago.
The decision by District Attorney Seth Williams, made with the support of the officer's widow and the city police commissioner, comes after nearly 30 years of legal battles over the racially charged case.

Abu-Jamal was convicted of fatally shooting Philadelphia police Officer Daniel Faulkner on Dec. 9, 1981. He was sentenced to death after his trial the following year.
This smells of Holder.
Abu Jamal belongs in a shallow grave.
That was his sentence and that is what he should have gotten.
Likewise, if he were white, he would not have had 30 years of playing the "Race Card".
This is what political correctness has done to our society.
Rufus Seth Williams is a “black power” believer in his own right. He was playing the race card when he was in college.
This sickens me.
Oh, never mind! I forgot the new terms which have no legal basis whatsoever, but seem to be popular with our AS DOJ and all it's cancerous tentacles...."Social Justice and Environmental Justice".
There is no protection under the law, because the application of the law is motivated by social engineers and profiteers. The law itself as written is beautiful and pure. When you start using only certain parts for certain reasons, you end up with Frankenstein Law.
And it smells like a sewer.
I agree totally that Mumia Abu Jamal should have been turned into rotting offal decades ago.
Just hope this doesn’t mean that his Hollywood enablers switch from keeping him away from the gas chamber to getting him sprung for a career in “community service”.
Red Ed Asner and Daffy Danny Glover were among the most hateful in this effort.
OTOH, dying of old age in stir is no picnic knowing that your worthless remains will wind up in a muddy hole in potters’ field.
Mumia will know someday what it’s like to be immortal and damned!
Taking bets that Obama will pardon the cop-killer on his way out the White House back door.
Black Panther BINGO!
Dec 9th 2011 Abu Jamal is Holding a TV News Conference at the Constitution Center in Philly from His Prison Cell. This is why Maureen Faulkner wil be Call Gov Corbett to transfer him to state Isolated Prison an No t celebrity Death Row Prison!
Seth Williams is Pro Maureen faulkner the widow of Officer Faulkner she didn’t want 30 More Years of Ed asner and Bishop Tutu ignoring the Facts of the case and Calling him Innocent. NOBODY ever disputed his Innocence On;y the Death Sentence except for Hollywood aholes and a Racist Bishop
How long before he becomes a professor at his favorite liberal university?
