Do they really love police, or are their statements to that effect ground cover for their true feelings. It seems their love is akin to a marriage of convenience and not a lasting love. There is, or soon will be a rift, and we aren’t talking about the San Andres Rift, in the state comprising a large part of the left coast. The rift will be between the police unions/associations and the California Federation of Teachers (CFT.) What seems a giant slap in the face of every police officer in California and across the nation, was passed in the form of a resolution by their so-called friends in the CFT. The Dailey Caller in a story by Caroline May says in part:
The leaders of the CFT, glibly it seems, explained their actions in part through the last six words in the paragraph following:
At the CFT’s 2011 Convention in late March, the delegates passed 30 resolutions, from solidifying support for anti-bullying legislation to supporting transitional kindergarten. Among the resolutions largely pertaining to education and collective bargaining rights was Resolution 19 – to “Reaffirm support for death row journalist.”
Reaffirm, that’s a neat concise little word that speaks to a police officer’s murder in 1981 … some thirty years ago. The police officer’s family have been in and out of court over this period, listening to first one and then other appeals of the convicted murderer, along with pleas by labor groups and others who have sided with the convicted killer, even though there seems not to be an iota of evidence to prove he is innocent:
“Mumia Abu-Jamal has for decades as a journalist fought courageously against racism and police brutality and for the human rights of all people and has taken strong stands in support of working people involved in labor struggles and in support of well-funded, quality, public education,” the resolution reads.
I suppose it is possible to make a saint of a demon, but the author of at least one book has his own opinion of the murderer and his defenders:
Daniel Flynn, author of “Cop killer: How Mumia Abu-Jamal conned millions into believing he was framed” told The Daily Caller that Abu-Jamal was the poster-child for ending the death penalty…20 – 30 years ago.
“Somebody should tell the California Teachers Federation that this is over, he is in jail, he is going to stay there,” Flynn said. “You have numerous eyewitnesses saying Mumia did it. You had ballistic evidence – Mumia’s gun at the scene was consistent with the bullet used to kill Faulkner. Mumia admitted after the fact that he did it.”
