There are some people that it makes sense to ask for their release from prison. The mother who got caught selling drugs once to try and feed her family.
The guy who got busted for weed possession when that was still a big deal. Some people deserve clemency. And there are some people that just don’t.
Far as I am concerned if you kill a police officer you shouldn’t get any clemency or early release whatsoever.
HOWEVER, there are some people that are so ill minded that they think killing a cop is ok and that they should all be let out of jail.
Former NFL quarterback and leftist social icon, Colin Kaepernick is on a new mission. This time he is calling for the release of convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal. Colin, says that Jamal, who was sentenced to death in 1981, for the murder of Philadelphia police officer, Daniel Faulkner, was framed.
It comes as little surprise that a man who would wear these socks would be lobbying for the release of a convicted cop killer:
“Mumia was shot, brutalized, arrested, and chained to a hospital bed.”
“We’re in the midst of a movement that says Black Lives Matter, and if that’s truly the case, then it means that Mumia’s life and legacy must matter. And the causes that he sacrificed his life and freedom for must matter as well.”
Breitbart reported that ‘Mumia Abu-Jamal’s brother, William Cook, was pulled over in a routine traffic stop in 1981 by officer Faulkner. Abu-Jamal, who was a member of the militant Black Panthers at the time, was also on the scene and drew a gun and shot the officer in the back. Then, as the officer lay bleeding on the ground, Abu-Jamal brutally shot the wounded officer in the face. Afterward, Abu-Jamal reportedly told police that he shot officer Faulkner and that he hoped the officer would die. Abu-Jamal was convicted of the murder based, in part, on the eye-witness accounts of four people.’
Kaepernick claims that Jamal has maintained his innocence since his arrest and that his story has not changed.
