A nonprofit advocacy group that supports former death-row inmate Mumia Abu-Jamal reported that he had been hospitalized Monday afternoon.
Prison Radio, which distributes recordings made by Abu-Jamal in prison, said the 60-year-old had been transported from the State Correctional Institution at Mahanoy in Schuylkill County at 1 p.m. to the intensive care unit at Schuylkill Medical Center.


Abu-Jamal, whose last broadcast was dated Mar. 24, was convicted of the 1981 murder of Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner. He was sentenced to death in 1983, but that sentence was overturned by a federal appeals court and reduced to life without parole

Starting to sound like Mumia doesnt have much time left. Unfortunately he will most likely see his final days in prison.

If he did kill a cop in 1981, hopefully his last days will be in hell!

I don't think there is any reasonable doubt to the contrary. I remember his case was a big deal when I was in law school from 81-84 (IIRC he was sentenced to death when I was a 2L) and we read lots about it in an advanced Criminal procedure class but I don't recall there being much doubt he done the deed

On December 9, 1981, in Philadelphia, close to the intersection at 13th and Locust Streets, Philadelphia Police Department officer Daniel Faulkner conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle belonging to William Cook, Abu-Jamal's younger brother. During the traffic stop, Abu-Jamal's taxi was parked across the street. He ran across the street towards Cook's car, where Faulkner was shot from behind and then in the face. Abu-Jamal was shot by Faulkner in the stomach. Faulkner died at the scene from the gunshot to his head. Police arrived and arrested Abu-Jamal, who was found wearing a shoulder holster. His revolver, which had five spent cartridges, was beside him. Abu-Jamal was taken directly from the scene of the shooting to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, where he received treatment for his wound.[31]
