COP-KILLER'S PALS PLAN PROTEST
December 3, 2007 -- SUPPORTERS of cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal are threatening to storm the streets of Rockefeller Center Thursday morning to protest the "Today" show. The New York-based "Free Mumia Abu-Jamal Coalition" is infuriated that Maureen Faulker - the widow of Philadelphia police office Daniel Faulker, whom Abu-Jamal was convicted of murdering 25 years ago - is scheduled to appear on the show Thursday to promote her new book, "Murdered by Mumia: A Life Sentence of Pain, Loss and Injustice." The activists - who claim on their Web site to have demanded "equal time" but "as of yet have gotten no agreement to that" -will protest outside. Faulkner told Page Six via a statement, "After 26 years of this harrowing experience, the purpose of writing this book is to finally find a peaceful closure to my husband's tragic ending. A jury of 12 convicted Mumia Abu-Jamal of murdering my husband, and for 25 years Abu- Jamal has been on death row acting as if he was a Hollywood superstar or political prisoner . . . He has a voice, and my late husband doesn't." Reps for "Today" had no comment.
The TrekMedic comments:
First, if you click the link about the Mumia supporters' protest in this story, you'll see that the state: "On Dec. 6, NBC's The Today Show intends to air a show about Michael Smerconish and Maureen Faulkner's new book "Murdered By Mumia." According to the announcement on Michael Smerconish's website, the show is planning to feature both Smerconish and Faulkner as guests."
Lies and bullshit! Michael Smerconish WILL NOT be interviewed along with Mrs. Faulkner on Thursday! This is HER story to tell, not his!
Oddly enough, the same bullshit is repeated here, here, and here! (The TrekMedic can probably link about 100 sources for this oft-repeated lie.
Then again,...look at what they have for supporters:
Mrs. Faulkner is facing the possibility of being shouted down or having to sit alongside one of these raging assholes during her Today Show interview.
They've had their say for 25+ years now. Let Mrs. Faulkner speak! By herself! Telling HER story, not the twisted and distorted lies of these no-good, do-gooder Hollywood leftists!
Turn the tables on the Free Mumia crowd!
Write to the Today Show at firstname.lastname@example.org and DEMAND THAT MRS. FAULKNER BE HEARD ALONE!
Justice for Daniel Faulkner!
