If you have never heard of Daniel Faulkner, you should have.
Thirty two years ago, Officer Daniel Faulkner gave his life for the City of Philadelphia. His killer, a radical named Mumia Abu-Jamal.
Abu-Jamal has been a favorite cause of the left for decades. Radical lawyers joined his cause, trying first to get the death sentence against him over turned. Once that happened, they continue to work today to get him freed from a life sentence for killing a police officer.
Now Barack Obama has nominated one of Abu-Jamal’s lawyers to a top Justice Department position and the Democrats controlling the Senate will not allow Officer Faulkner’s widow to testify at his hearing.
