    Ex-Black Panther loses legal bid

    PHILADELPHIA - Mumia Abu-Jamal, a former Black Panther sentenced to death for killing a police officer, waited too long before disclosing another man's confession for the 1981 shooting, a judge ruled Thursday. Jamal, whose case has become a symbol for activists who charge police brutality, had filed an emergency motion in May seeking a deposition from Arnold Beverly, who says he and another man were hired to kill the officer. US District Judge William H. Yohn rejected the motion, saying Jamal knew of Beverly's claim since at least June 8, 1999. (AP)

    Dear Sirs;
    It is clear that the writer of this article never took the time to learn about the Mumia Abu-Jamal case.
    First, while it's true that Mumia Abu-Jamal was a member of the black panthers when he was a teenager, he was a grown man, and only a taxi driver, when he murdered Officer Faulkner. His previous affiliation with the Black Panthers was in no way connected to his crime. It was not mentioned during his trial, and the jurors had no knowledge of it until after they found him guilty. Your decision to use the "Ex-Black Panther" headline was obviously motivated by your desire to sensationalise the story. You have misled your readers into believing that his status as an Ex-Black Panther is relevent to the case.
    Second, the writers statement that Mumia Abu-Jamal's case "has become a symbol for activists who charge police brutality" is recklessly innaccurate, and defaming to the murdered Officer. Not one witness has ever accused Officer Faulkner of abuse, not even Abu-Jamal himself. The overwhelming majority of activists who rally behind Abu-Jamal do so out of blind and unwavering opposition to the death penalty, NOT because of police brutality.
    Third, the statement that Arnold Beverly "says he and another man were hired to kill the officer" is reckless and irresponsible. The radicals on the Abu-Jamal defense team have yet to prove that this person Arnold Beverly even exists. If he does exist, he just might take exception to the fact that you have reported his confession as factual without so much as an "alleged" to qualify it.

    The APME Code of Ethics require you to acknowledge the errors in this article and correct them promptly and prominently.

      Very nice email Jim, but somehow I doubt that they will take it to heart...

          Does anybody know when Wesley Cook's next execution date is scheduled for? I am getting sick and tired of the media attention swirling around his sorry ***. Hes a cold blooded killer who needs to be put down.

                      ALL newspapers are slanted much beyond "headline catching antics." There is so much bad journalism out there its sickening.

                      Very nice letter, Jim. Unfortunately if a letter to the editor is printed, it is usually cut down so much as to lose its original strength and character.

                        You know what Raychel, maybe the press won't take the Sgt.'s letter to heart, but as a Philly Cop, I do. A well written letter Sgt!
                        The cop-killing animal who chooses to be known as Mumia Abu-Jamal has fouled our world for to long. Too many "supporters" of this slimey piece of filth , know too little of the facts of the case. Please, anyone who is "on the fence" on this piece of garbage, go to WWW.fop5.org You can find the trial transcripts there and a list of people and organizations boycotted nation-wide by the National FOP, because of their support of this cop-killer! Mac-90, if you still have questions as to who this animal is, and his proven guilt, then Email me directly at [email protected]
                        I was only 12 years old when P/O Faulkner was killed by this coward...it is far beyond justice now! He needs to be executed, it was the sentence meted out..let's do it!
                        Justice for Danny Faulkner!

                          I couldn't agree with you more, LB. Justice has been long overdue. Fry Mumia.

                              I was just thinking if they would print Jims letter for the "reaction" or ignore it for their own motives regardless of potential reaction.
