    California Federation of Teachers Adopt Resolution of Support for Convicted Cop-Killer Mumia Abu-Jamal

    Remember Daniel Faulkner. From Dec, 2006

    The California Federation of Teachers is now a wholly owned subsidiary of the FAR LEFT.

    Between negotiating for more benefits and teaching their students, the California Federation of Teachers has adopted a resolution of support for convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal.

    At the CFT’s 2011 Convention in late March, the delegates passed 30 resolutions, from solidifying support for anti-bullying legislation to supporting transitional kindergarten. Among the resolutions largely pertaining to education and collective bargaining rights was Resolution 19 – to “Reaffirm support for death row journalist.”

    “Therefore, be it resolved, that the California Federation of Teachers reaffirm its support and demand that the courts consider the evidence of innocence of Mumia Abu-Jamal,” the Committee Report reads.

    Mumia Abu-Jamal was a former member of the Black Panthers who was found guilty of murdering Philadelphia police officer Daniel J. Faulkner during a routine traffic stop in 1981. Abu-Jamal was subsequently sentenced to death.

    His supporters, such as the California Federation of Teachers, argue that his trial was unfair and that he is a civil rights hero.

    “Mumia Abu-Jamal has for decades as a journalist fought courageously against racism and police brutality and for the human rights of all people and has taken strong stands in support of working people involved in labor struggles and in support of well-funded, quality, public education,” the resolution reads.

    Daniel Flynn, author of “Cop killer: How Mumia Abu-Jamal conned millions into believing he was framed” told The Daily Caller that Abu-Jamal was the poster-child for ending the death penalty…20 – 30 years ago.

    “Somebody should tell the California Teachers Federation that this is over, he is in jail, he is going to stay there,” Flynn said. “You have numerous eyewitnesses saying Mumia did it. You had ballistic evidence – Mumia’s gun at the scene was consistent with the bullet used to kill Faulkner. Mumia admitted after the fact that he did it.”

    Fred Glass, CFT spokesman, told TheDC that the even though the case is 30 years old, since Abu-Jamal is still going through appeals, the issue remains relevant.


    The sorry academic condition of the California K-8 public schools, and the poor graduation rate from California High schools are a bit more pressing than supporting a convicted copy-killer wouldn’t you think?

    Now, the resolution will go to the national mother union, the American Federation of Teachers where they can make more sorry asses out of themselves.

    How despicable is this?

    Mumia Abu-Jamal Watch: House Condemns the Decision of St. Denis, France, to Name a Street in Honor of Mumia Abu-Jamal


    A protestor waves a poster claiming justice for US death-row inmate Mumia Abu-Jamal during a demonstration in Paris in 2000. City authorities in Philadelphia are suing their counterparts in Paris and its suburb of Saint Denis for honoring Jamal for the murder of a policeman he denies committing, a lawyer said.

    Philadelphia Inquirer: U.S. House denounces Abu-Jamal street name

    A resolution asks France to change the name of a suburb’s street honoring the convicted police killer.

    House members last night passed a resolution denouncing a French city for naming a street in honor of convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal.

    “We must stand together as one and send a strong message to the world that cop-killers deserve to be punished, not to be celebrated,” said Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick (R., Pa.), the Bucks County congressman who wrote the resolution.

    The vote came a few days shy of the 25th anniversary of the slaying of Daniel Faulkner, a 25-year-old officer shot after he pulled over Abu-Jamal’s brother on Dec. 9, 1981. Abu-Jamal, a onetime radio reporter and former Black Panther, was convicted in 1982 and sentenced to death.

    Abu-Jamal’s writings and taped speeches on the justice system have made him a cause celebre among Hollywood activists, foreign politicians, and some death-penalty opponents who believe he was the victim of a racist justice system.

    In December 2001, a federal judge overturned Abu-Jamal’s death sentence but upheld his conviction. Both sides have appealed that ruling.

    In April, a street in St. Denis, a suburb in France just north of Paris, was named after Abu-Jamal.

    The resolution asks the French government to step in to change the street name if St. Denis opted not to. The measure passed 368-31, with eight members voting present.

    And who are the 31 who voted against the House Resolution?

    Or as James Taranto in the WSJ calls the cop killer caucus:

    Here’s a list of what one might call the Cop-Killer’s Caucus, the congressmen who voted against the resolution, all Democrats:

    Neil Abercrombie (Hawaii) Carolyn Kilpatrick (Mich.) Robert Scott (Va.)
    William Clay (Mo.) Barbara Lee (Calif.) Jose Serrano (N.Y.)
    Emanuel Cleaver (Mo.) Cynthia McKinney (Ga.) Fortney Hillman Stark Jr. (Calif.)
    John Conyers (Mich.) Gregory Meeks (N.Y.) Edolphus Towns (N.Y.)
    Jim Cooper (Tenn.) Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.) Mark Udall (Colo.)
    Danny Davis (Ill.) James Oberstar (Minn.) Nydia Velazquez (N.Y.)
    Raul Grijalva (Ariz.) Major Owens (N.Y.) Maxine Waters (Calif.)
    Maurice Hinchey (N.Y.) Ed Pastor (Ariz.) Anthony Weiner (N.Y.)
    Mike Honda (Calif.) Donald Payne (N.J.) Lynn Woolsey (Calif.)
    Jesse Jackson Jr. (Ill.) Charles Rangel (N.Y.)  
    Eddie Bernice Johnson (Texas) Bobby Rush (Ill.)

    And John Conyers will chair the House Judiciary Committee and he does not support the rule of law?

    And Charles Rangel will chair the House Ways and Means Committee and he does not support the rule of law?

    All are Cop-Killer supporting LEFTY MORONS.

    Flap supposes that they all thought Stanley Tookey Williams should not have been executed either.
