The Barrel Of A Gun

By Wyatt Earp | September 17, 2010

Smite sent me this yesterday, and I wasn’t going to post it. Danny Faulkner’s murder still gets me really angry – especially since his killer (Wesley Cook, aka Mumia abu-Jamal) is living large on death row 29 years later.

I was going to avoid this because I expected a pro-Mumia slant. Smite reassured me this is not the case, and the film is being promoted on the Daniel Faulkner website.

    Every lawyer who has extended effort to free this @$$hole should be disbarred and forced to live Philly’s most crime ridden area. There is no excuse for letting this criminal to continue wasting air and taxes.

    Considering the government (i.e., taxpayers) are, in many cases, footing the bill for both prosecuion AND defense of death penalty cases, this is nothing more than welfare for lawyers. It is well past time to remove liberal lawyers from the bench by impeachment or voting them out, and murderers from prison cells by execution. Neither of which serve a useful purpose in society.

    Agreed, this is ridiculous…

    My support will ALWAYS remain with Mrs. Faulkner and the Philadelphia Police Department.

    While this documentary takes an anti-Mumia standpoint, I feel that he does not deserve all the attention that he has gotten. I mean, aren’t all criminals in prison framed? The facts of this case are clear, he is guilty of murdering a police officer. Abu-Jamal has done a tremendous job of playing the race card to stay alive.

    I am outraged that he has been able to stay on death row for so long. If we are certain he is guilty, then we should be certain about executing him.

    So, I went to the Danny Faulkner website. I read the list of Mumia Abu-Jamal’s supporters and it reads a usual suspects list of lefty Hollywood: Your Ed Asners, Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon’s and Alec Baldwins

    My question is what kind of Glass Houses do these people live in? Does it have Rainbows, Flying Unicorns and Candy Corn coming out of the skies? An officer was murdered for pulling someone over in cold blood and the asshole who did it is considered a Martyr?

    He needs to get the needle as soon as possible and that would be merciful then what he did to Danny Faulkner.

    Speaking of who the movie is supporting, it’s lest not we forget who supports that cop killer:

    Sadly, the list is long and distinguished. But, it’s good to remember who’s who, before you decide to lend your financial support to their business or movie or whatever…

    Robert B. – Shame this didn’t happen in Texas. This piece of filth would be dead by now.

    Old NFO – And we in the department live it every day. And will until he is gone.

    Robbie – Maureen Faulkner is a wonderful woman. She deserves closure.

    Mrs. Crankipants – The endless appeals are ridiculous. No way this should still be going on 30 years after the fact.

    Ferrell – Mike Farrell (from MASH) was interviewed dozens of times and claimed he knew nothing of the case. How f’ing ignorant is that?

    Smite – I used to love R.E.M. I can’t listen to them anymore after Michael Stipe started supporting this animal. Same thing with Ben & Jerry’s. Loved the ice cream. Haven’t had it in over a decade.

    Wyatt (Robert B reply) – that would be a silver lining to him being released. I guarantee he’d be dead within 24 hours, if not just shot on-site leaving the prison gates or courthouse doors.

    The first I ever heard of the case was when I went to college. It’s insane that this thing has gone on since I was just a few months old.

    The next thing I want to read about Mumia is his obituary.

    Smite – And the libs would want to see that person strung up. Ironic, eh?

    Bitter – Hopefully, it’ll end before you have grandchildren.

    Bob – You and me both.

    Crusty – He was actually a half-decent D.A. When he became mayor he amped up his hatred of the police and firefighters.
