A police boycott over a murderer?-Truth!

The Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) Has Called for a Boycott of Supporters of Convicted Killer Mumia Abu-Jamal-Truth!

Summary of eRumor:  


At a recent national meeting of the Fraternal Order of Police, it was decided by vote that people, products, or organizations associated with supporting killer Mumia Abu-Jamal will be boycotted.

The Truth:

This story is true, although the list of boycott targets is a long one and may change from time to time.

Mumia Abu-Jamal was convicted of the 1981 killing of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner and sentenced to death. His has become one of the most publicized death penalty cases in the world. Mumia Abu-Jamal’s writing and speaking have been widely circulated and he has a large number of supporters. Mumia Abu-Jamal and his supporters claim that he did not shoot the officer and that he’s the innocent victim of a police cover-up.  They want a new trial.

Critics of Mumia Abu-Jamal say that he premeditatedly killed officer Faulkner and that no credible evidence has been shown either in the original case or repeated appeals to indicate otherwise.
