The Camel’s Other Nostril

29 04 2012

We all knew that once Mumia skated from the death house that the incessant demands to let him out of prison were on deck.

I would have thought that crowd would have waited a few years, but I guess “civil rights” just can’t wait.


28 arrested at Abu-Jamal protest

Authorities arrested 28 people outside the White House Tuesday during a protest to support the release from prison of Mumia Abu-Jamal.

The protesters, dressed in mock prison jumpsuits, were arrested for not dispersing from the sidewalk in Lafayette Park by U.S. Park Police about 5:30 p.m. Police arrested 27 on charges of failure to obey a lawful order, a misdemeanor. One other person was arrested for interfering with agency functions, said Sgt Paul Brooks, a Park Police spokesman.

Protesters chose Tuesday to protest because it was Abu-Jamal’s birthday. Their efforts included a rally outside the Department of Justice and a march downtown that culminated at the White House, they said.

Just a hunch, but I get the feeling the R-word was used at this rally/hissyfit.
