MONDAY, FEB. 15, 2021, COMMUNITY PROTEST TO CONDEMN DA KRASNER’S CONTINUED FRAME UP OF JOURNALIST MUMIA ABU-JAMAL
Larry Krasner, Philadelphia’s so-called progressive District Attorney, filed a legal brief on Feb. 3, 2021, denying Mumia Abu-Jamal the right to prove his innocence.
Following in the steps of Lynn Abraham, Ron Castille, Seth Williams, and other notoriously corrupt DAs, Krasner’s legal brief argues against any new hearings that might bring to the light of day any new evidence that has never been considered in a court of law since the 1981 trial.
In effect, Krasner’s 125-page brief puts his seal of approval on the outrageously racist actions of Judge Sabo, who was heard to say “I’m gonna help them fry the n––r.”
In addition, Krasner knows there is new evidence. He was the one who found the six hidden boxes of exculpatory evidence that exposes the prosecution’s misconduct.
Instead of considering all the evidence that has been gathered since the 1981 trial, Krasner is basing his line of arguments on the fabrications and lies that helped to unfairly convict Mumia in the first place.
With his legal action, Krasner is attempting to continue the judicial, police and prosecutorial misconduct that convicted an innocent Black journalist almost four decades ago. Krasner’s office is refusing to acknowledge that similar misconduct that exonerated 18 other innocent men also applies to Abu-Jamal’s case.
