Biography

American journalist on Pennsylvania's death-row in prison, 2001, who claims to have been falsely convicted of shooting and killing police officer Faulkner on 12/09/1981, 3:52 AM, Philadelphia. The evidence against him is sketchy and/or nonexistent, the trial grossly tinged by racism and judicial corruption. It is shrouded in all kinds of haze, denial, poor investigations, fake confessions, a psycho judge who has presided over sentencing of more black men to death than anyone in American history, mismatched caliber bullets and guns, missing witnesses, manipulated witnesses, alternate confessions lacking credibility, and a morass of confusion. The jury came in with a guilty verdict on 7/03/1982, Philadelphia.

Abu-Jamal's death sentence was thrown out by a federal court after 19 years of struggle. He will now be re-sentenced, which is astonishing: this will be back in court before a new jury.

His case is very much involved with the MOVE organization of Philly, a Panther-spin-off of urban naturalists most of whom take the surname Africa.

Their motto is "on the move." They were big news in the late 70s-early 80s when their homes were under siege, and the second one was destroyed in a fire that took out a city block after a state police helicopter dropped a C4 bomb onto the house, killing many MOVE members and children, including John Africa.

Eric Francis, given by email 12/2001. "I contacted him three years ago through Pam Africa, a mutual friend, for his birth time; he told Pam (his spokeswoman) that he didn't believe in astrology, and that his situation was up to God anyway."
