1980s Death Row cop-killer Mumia abu Jamal, darling of Hollyweird and the progressive Left, will live out the rest of his natural life. Prosecutors announced today that they will no longer pursue the death penalty:

“The decision by District Attorney Seth Williams, made with the support of the officer’s widow and the city police commissioner, comes after nearly 30 years of legal battles over the racially charged case.

“There’s never been any doubt in my mind that Mumia Abu-Jamal shot and killed Officer Faulkner. I believe that the appropriate sentence was handed down by a jury of his peers in 1982,” said Williams, who is black. “While Abu-Jamal will no longer be facing the death penalty, he will remain behind bars for the rest of his life, and that is where he belongs.”

Abu-Jamal was convicted of fatally shooting Philadelphia police Officer Daniel Faulkner on Dec. 9, 1981. He was sentenced to death after his trial the following year.

Abu-Jamal, who has been incarcerated in a Pennsylvania prison, has garnered worldwide support from those who believe he was the victim of a biased justice system.

This Friday marks the 30th anniversary of the murder of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner.

Justice delayed for three decades. Justice denied. Tragedy compounding tragedy.
