WASHINGTON, D.C. The memo has gone out, the date has been saved. This coming Tuesday, radicals of all stripes will descend upon the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington D.C. to rally in support of convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal. Organizers are hoping to speak with U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder about why Mumia should be set free. Theyre also planning acts of civil disobedience to draw media attention to their cause. Officially known as "Occupy the Justice Department," the event is endorsed by the usual group of malcontents, including "Educators for Mumia Abu-Jamal" a collection of left-wing teachers from across the country. Among Mumias many well-wishers in the K-12 community is Milwaukee Teachers Education Association President Bob Peterson, the entire Chicago Teachers Union, and the Rethinking Schools crew who produce anti-American lesson plans and teaching materials that are used in countless classrooms. To understand why responsible Americans should find it troubling that Mumia has become a folk hero to much of the teaching community, a little background is in order. Mumia was a founding member of the Philadelphia Black Panther Party, and was working as a cab driver in that city in 1981. On the night of Dec. 9, his brother, William Cook, was pulled over by police for driving the wrong way on a one-way street without headlights. Mumia apparently came across the scene in his cab and claimed the officer was beating Cook with a flashlight. Mumia injected himself into the struggle, which resulted in both the police officer and Mumia getting shot. The officer, Daniel Faulkner, died, and Abu-Jamal was convicted of murder and sentenced to death. Three eyewitnesses testified that they saw Mumia shoot the officer. Another witness testified that he angrily confessed to the shooting in the hospital.

I hope he does get pardoned by Obama. That way someone can finish the work.
Old news... the Dept of Just-Us has been occpied by Leftist radicals since Jan of ‘09.
If he murdered a politician.......WELL! THIS IS DIFFERENT no matter what color he is.
“Left wing teacher.” Isn’t that redundant?
Obama can only issue pardons for federal offenses. Mumia was convicted murder by Pennsylvania. Only the Governor of PA can pardon him.
BTW, I am told that wearing this is a “get out of traffic ticket” free pass in the Philly area.
I suspect you’re right.
The best protest against this I’ve seen was a “Free Mumia” t-shirt, but with a black and white picture of a young Charles Manson on it. The t-shirt owner said the funny part was even how few liberals noticed it, and just assumed he was a liberal.
The justice system is corrupt only insofar as it has failed to carry out its duty to execute that piece of filth.
So, I Holder going to greet them warmly and then go on vacation for a few weeks to let them romp through the Department?
Obama has no power to pardon Wesley Cook. He was convicted of murder in the state on Pennsylvania. It was not a federal crime.
Oh, really.. a Milwaukee connection.
Gov. Walker .. if he`s paying attention.. has a brand new recall election commercial.
Drealocks: check. Islamified name: check. Killed a cop: Check. Sounds like one of Holder’s Heroes to me.
I’d post a wanted dead on him if he ever got out, someone needs to off him in prison
