EADLINE LEGAL NEWS: Murdered by Mumia: A Life Sentence of Loss, Pain, and Injustice.

Maureen Faulkner, the widow of slain Philadelphia police officer Danny Faulkner, is featured in an exciting, exclusive, in-depth and inside interview, discussing her new book

Murdered by Mumia: A Life Sentence of Loss, Pain, and Injustice. Maureen's husband was shot between the eyes on a cold December night in 1981. Mumia Abu-Jamal was unanimously convicted of the crime by a racially mixed jury based on: the testimony of several eyewitnesses, his ownership of the murder weapon, matching ballistics, and Abu-Jamal's own confession. After his conviction, however, a national anti-death penalty movement was started to "Free Mumia;" Mike Farrell, Ed Asner, Whoopi Goldberg, and Jesse Jackson rallied on his behalf, and led the charge. For his part, while on death row, Abu-Jamal published several books, delivered radio commentaries, was a college commencement speaker, found himself named an Honorary Citizen of France, and had his defense coffers enhanced by ticket sales from a sold out (16,000-person) concert featuring Rage Against the Machine. Now, with this interview Maureen carefully and definitively lays out the case against Abu-Jamal, and those who've elevated him to the status of political prisoner. As Abu-Jamal's lawyers contemplate their final appeal, Faulkner weaves a compelling, never-before-told account of one fateful night and the 25-year-long rewriting of history. She offers a vivid story that demands our attention and the pursuit of justice for her late husband.
