"Perhaps the best known Death-Row prisoner in the world." (Page 1, New York Times, Dec. 19, 2001, the day after a federal court nullified a racially mixed jury's July 3, 1982 unanimous sentence of death.)
Mumia Abu Jamal - The Patron Saint of American Cop Killers exposes the Hollywood backed "Free Mumia! Free All Political Prisoners!" movement's claims of "racism" in jury selection, "police frame-up," and "police intimidation of defense witnesses" as a transparent fraud.
With the same precision and insight he devoted to a three part article in the East Hampton Independent (and the Southampton Independent) on the tragic carbon monoxide death of his friend, tennis star, and CBS TV commentator, Vitas Gerulaitis, Hayden takes the reader through the pre-trial, trial, and absurdly lengthy post conviction proceedings.
Now that the chances of the cop hating ex Black Panther ever being executed for killing a 25 year old cop are about the same as his chances of ever being found "innocent," Hayden predicts that the middle aged Death-Row prisoner will, like Dr. Martin Luther King's cowardly assassin, racist James Earl Ray, die of old age in a 6 X 9 steel cage in a super max prison somewhere in rural America.

A good book to back up this version of events is the new best seller by the wife of the murdered policeman, Daniel Faulkner. 'Murdered by Mumia' will set the record straight once and for all and vindicate the sentence of the racially mixed jury in the case of the killer, Mumia

A far better purchase on this important subject is the small (64 pages), inexpensive book published by Amnesty International entitled, 'The Case of Mumia Abu-Jamal: A Life in the Balance'. For example, John Hayden puts a quotation on the front cover which according to Amnesty International is a false quote that never occurred. The quotation on the front cover, as explained in the Amnesty International book, is a false attribution made by an intimidated, cowed witness whose testimony changed one hundred and eighty degrees immediately after being pressured by police. Again I repeat, it is a far better investment of time and money to read the world class, fair, objective booklet published by Amnesty International on this subject.
