Murderer
    (April 23, 1954- )
    Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
    Born Wesley Cook
    Won a Peabody Award for his coverage of the Pope's visit to Philadelphia (1979)
    Convicted murderer of police officer Daniel Faulkner and sentenced to the death penalty (1981)
    Wrote 'Live From Death Row,' 'All Things Censored,' 'Death Blossoms: Reflections from a Prisoner of Conscience,' 'Faith of Our Fathers: An Examination of the Spiritual Life of African and African-American People'
    Narrator in the documentary 'Zapatista (1999)'
    The Philadelphia DA's office announced it would no longer be pursuing the death penalty against him (December 7, 2011)
    He's become something for liberal celebrities to show off how much 'they care.' Those celebrities include Rage Against the Machine, Martin Sheen, Whoopi Goldberg, Michael Moore, Mike Farrell and Ed Asner.
    He was convicted for first degree murder on December 9, 1981 for shooting and killing a police officer.
    He's a founding member of the Black Panther Party in Philadelphia.
    He allegedly made a confession while in the emergency room, although maintaining a plea of innocence since being convicted.
    By twenty-five, he was a prominent journalist and radio broadcaster.
    Many people who were there the night of Daniel's death remember someone else shooting a gun and fleeing the scene.
    Mumia's .38 was never decisively linked to Faulkner's wounds.
    Mumia was denied the option to represent himself (reason being his dreadlocks made jurors 'nervous') and was defended by an incompetent lawyer who was later disbarred.
    Mumia was prosecuted by a DA who was later reprimanded for withholding evidence in another trial.
    The judge for the trial was a lifetime member of the Fraternal Order of Police who also sent more men to die than any other active judge in America. A fellow judge called his courtroom a 'vacation for prosecutors.'
