Through steel walls Your voice blastin' on True rebel my brother Mumia I reflect upon You be tha spark That set tha prairie fires on Make tha masses a mastodon path To trample tha fascists on At fifteen exposed Philly's finest killing machine With boots and mad guns They tried to pacify you young Cause and effect Smell tha smoke and tha breeze My panther my brother We are at war until you're free
You'll never silence tha voice of tha voiceless You'll never silence tha voice of tha voiceless
You see tha powerful got nervous Cause he refused to be their servant 'Cause he spit truth And burned like black churches Prose and verses A million poor in hearses Watch tha decision of Dred Scott As it reserves So long as tha rope Is tight around Mumia's neck Let there be no rich white life We bound to respect Cause and effect Can't ya smell tha smoke in tha breeze My panther my brother we are at war until you're free
You'll never silence tha voice of tha voiceless You'll never silence tha voice of tha voiceless You'll never silence tha voice of tha voiceless You'll never silence tha voice of tha voiceless
And Orwell's hell a terror era coming through But this little brother's watching you too And Orwell's hell a terror era coming through But this little brother's watching you too

Dan C Pants from Springfield, PaThe smell or "smoking gun" test to see if a gun had been recently fired is extremely subjective (instead the police relied on the spent shell caseings in mumia's gun and the 4 eye witnesses that saw him do it). The bullet was confirmed in court by a ballistics to be a .38 that matched the type of gun mumia was found with. The person who originally extracted the bullet thought it was a .44 because it was a very powerful hollow point .38 (why would a pacisfist mumia carry a gun with such a deadly ammo?) And checking a person's hand to see if they recently fired a gun only works if it is down immediatly after the shooting, and any type of movement can deem the test ineffective (like when mumia resisted arrest).
Try actually reading the trial transcripts before supporting a CONVICTED cop killer.
Ryan from Philadelphia, PaIt was proven that Faulkner was shot with a .38 not a .44. And maybe you are forgetting that there are 5 eyewitnesses to the murder.
David from Manchester, EnglandNote for Tom, Northport, NY:
The original suspicion was that a .44 calibre was used, guessed by the person who extracted the bullet, not a ballistics expert. Proper ballistics tests confirmed a .38 calibre was used to kill Daniel Faulkner.
Julien from Carvin, FranceMumia Abdul Jamal is a "citizen" of the Paris city.
also a street hold the name of Mumia Abu Jamal in St Denis (france) http://solidarite93.free.fr/images/news/rue%20st-denis.JPG
Tom from Northport, NyThe police never even tested Abu-Jamal's gun to see if it had recently been fired. They never tested his hands to see if he had fired a gun. They also never confirmed that Mumia's gun was the fatal weapon.
Tom from Northport, NyThe policeman that Mumia Abu-Jamal was acused of killing was shot with a 44 caliber gun, Mumia's gun that he was licenced to carry, was a 38 caliber
Vince from Philadelphia, PaJamal never actually won a Peabody award. Wikipedia has a whole article about him. His work was sent in but he never won. He worked as a taxi driver at the time of the murder
