Mumia Abu Jamal: Giving a Face to the Death Penalty

  • Mumia Abu Jamal, a respected journalist, was convicted in of killing a Philadelphia policeman in a trial that most observers say was a gross miscarriage of justice, filled with blatant racism and misconduct by the judge and prosecution, Mumia Abu-Jamal was on Death Row for over 30 years. A federal judge overturned his death sentence in 2001 but he was kept on death row for another 10 years by a series of unsuccessful appeals by the Philadelphia prosecutor. Mumia remains in prison under a sentence of life without parole. But the state has not ended efforts to put him to death, now by refusing to respond adequately to what appears to be Mumia's life threatening medical condition.
