The wife of murdered Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner is furious this weekend after a left-wing judge in Pennsylvania ruled to allow convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal to appeal his conviction.
Philly Judge Leon Tucker granted Abu-Jamal an appeal for his conviction after the convict spent three decades on death row. This is not the first favorable ruling the cop-killer has enjoyed recently because his death sentence was thrown out over flawed jury instructions.
Now the dead officer’s widow is furious, according to Breitbart News:
Mrs. Faulkner said she hopes Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner appeals the ruling.
“Mumia Abu-Jamal shot my husband between the eyes, he executed my husband,” Faulkner added. “I’m never going to let this go. All over the country, they’re reducing sentences on murderers, they’re allowing them out of prison, and it’s wrong. It’s so wrong.”
Faulkner concluded saying, “To Judge Leon Tucker: I hope you can sleep at night with the decision you made, because you know it was not the right one.”
Abu-Jamal’s sentence was changed to life without parole, but his final appeal of the conviction was denied by the state Supreme Court in 2012.
On Thursday, Judge Tucker ruled that former Supreme Court Justice Ronald Castille should have recused himself because he had made statements as a prosecutor about cop killers that could indicate his bias.
Abu-Jamal was convicted for murdering officer Faulkner by shooting him in the back and then in the face after the officer got in a confrontation with Abu-Jamal’s brother during a traffic stop.
Leftists love this murderer and have spent years trying to get him freed despite his murder conviction.
