I have often said that there is no where in the US that Black people have experienced equal justice under the law. The Case of Mumia Abu-Jamal is such a glaring case in point, that I'm going to reprint a posting by fellow blogger CPOhio1940 ahead of the four other posts I had planned to submit this week.
In all the hue and cry for other people who have been wrongfully incarcerated to be pardoned by the President and released, I think Mumia should have priority. However, this article is not just about Mumia, but about the confirmation of deputy attorney general designate Debo Adegbile (ah-deg-bi-lay), and the attempt on the part of the right wing repuglycons and teabaggers to use Mumia's case as a pretext to not ratify him for the post.
This, then, is the entirety of the post Note the coloring is his, for emphasis - not mine. I think we should all be mindful of the escalations on the part of the repuglycons as we get closer to the mid-term 2014 elections. They were abominal in 2013 - look for them to be heinous in 2014.

We're clear as to the fact that the continued incarceration of Mumia Abu-Jamal is a crime and a travesty; in a country where you're guilty of living while Black, the chances for his getting justice are slim and none. We also must be clear that the right wing repuglycons will use every trick in the book to not confirm the Presidential appointees to keep positions. We must not only monitor this as it plays out, but make our voices heard - we can no longer sit idly by while they eviscerate our rights.
