NJ Officer Among
Supporters Celebrating
Cop Killer's Birthday

Last week convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal celebrated his 53rd birthday from behind the walls of the Greene State Correctional Institution in southwestern Pennsylvania. Mumia is currently on death row for the 1981 murder of Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner.

Across the state a second celebration took place. Friends and supporters of Mumia held this event in Philadelphia.

Among the supporters and speakers were actor Danny Glover, representatives from various Mumia support groups, and New Jersey Police Officer Delacy Davis.

Davis served as an officer with a city police department in Essex County until his apparent recent retirement.

During his career he founded the organization Black Cops Against Police Brutality (B-CAP) which has participated in actions against officers from various New Jersey police departments including Keansburg and Freehold Borough.

Davis expressed support for Mumia and took black officers to task. “Black officers are part and parcel of the problem.” “My black colleagues had the opportunity tonight to come stand shoulder to shoulder with people of all shoulder with people of all races, of all divisions, of all creeds to say we call for justice for Mumia!” “Their absence and their silence is deafening. And, I am going to continue to call them out.”

He finished the rally with loud resounding “Free Mumia!” which was met by cheers and applause by those in attendance.

A second march and rally held by the Philadelphia FOP was led by Officer Daniel Faulkner’s widow Maureen Faulkner. About 100 strong, the group marched to the location of the Mumia birthday celebration. Outside, rather than vocalize a quarter century of frustration with chants and shouts, they offered a silent protest.

In contrast, Mumia supporters hurled profanities and insults towards Officer Faulkner’s widow and the FOP members.

Mumia, whose real name is Wesley Clark, shot Officer Faulkner in the back while he was on a motor vehicle stop back in December of 1981. After Officer Faulkner went down, Mumia stood over him and fired four more rounds into the injured officer including one to the face at close range killing him. Officer Faulkner did get off one round injuring Mumia.
