    I was recommended this book by a friend thinking that it would sway my stance on capital punishment I am in a small majority of social liberals who support capital punishment Mumia aptly points out major corruption in nearly every aspect of our criminal justice system, local police, correctional officers, district attornies, and judges He also demonstrates the propensity for discrimination against blacks and backs it up with solid statistics and facts.One of the most damning is how muchI was recommended this book by a friend thinking that it would sway my stance on capital punishment I am in a small majority of social liberals who support capital punishment Mumia aptly points out major corruption in nearly every aspect of our criminal justice system, local police, correctional officers, district attornies, and judges He also demonstrates the propensity for discrimination against blacks and backs it up with solid st...

    Read it Then act on it Due to a recent Supreme Court reject of the case, he might not be live much longer Write a letter to President Obama, ask for his executive clemency If you need help writing that letter, send me a mail and I will send you a letter to draw from.

    Mumia is a former Black Panther The facts support his having been framed in the murder of the cop, a crime for which he was nearly executed.Live from Death Row, written before his sentence was commuted, is not, however, a vehicle he uses to advocate for himself or plead his own case to the public He has written other books I haven t read, and I don t know if he did that there.Instead, here he uses his own situation to discuss the racism inherent both in the U.S court system he also talks abo Mumia is a former Black Panther The facts support his having been framed in the murder of the cop, a crime for which he was nearly executed.Live from Death Row, written before his sentence was commuted, is not, however, a vehicle he uses to advocate for himself or plead his own case to the public He has written other books I haven t read, and I don t know if he did that there.Instead, here he uses his own situation to discuss the racism inherent both in the U.S court system he also talks about racism on death row.The mandatory fresh air time, prized and treasured by men who rarely see the clear blue sky, is an Apartheid one, at least in Supermax, RHU,SMU, and SHU ultimate maximum security prisons, which he says have swelled since jailhouse overcrowding has made prisons tenser places andpeople are tossed into the hole The vast majority of prisoners are Black, though they are a minority of the population at large, a...

    Pick it up, read it, decide what action you feel you need to take Political prisoners are nothing new, but in the time of Facebook, Goodreads, Blogs and , we all have a outlet for our political views Challenge anything that you feel to be unjust.

    Just reading the sections on how Mumia was railroaded during his trial and the following appeals and how The Baldus Study has proven that defendants charged with killing whites are 4.3 timeslikely to be sentenced to die then defendants charged with killing blacks 6 of every 11 defendants convicted of killing a white would not have received a death sentence had their victim been black are infuriating From that study alone it shows how the Black Lives Matter movement is very much needed Just reading the sections on how Mumia was railroaded during his trial and the following appeals and how The Baldus Study has proven that defendants charged with killing whites are 4.3 timeslikely to be sen...

    I read this and college and went back and re read this book is phenomenal I know that people are torn as to whether Mr Mumia Abu Jamal is guilty or not, but I just became enthralled in his story and journey and what his life is like and it is really interesting No matter where you stand on the death penalty in my opinion when you have someone this articulate, who seems to be non violent now it should at least give you pa...
