“Abu-Jamal’s attorneys will argue against the constitutional violations that unfairly convicted the imprisoned journalist who is suffering from the ravages of Hepatitis C and glaucoma.”
Just as I stated on another blog about this, the man is about to drop dead and so this bit of grandstanding is ridiculous. When it counted, the man should have been granted the right to have his appeals heard, but since he is dying from the ravages of disease, now is the time to grant him the right to have his appeals heard??!!!

Whitey-pink ass, you’ll never get a goddamn ‘thanks’ from me for a goddamn thing so stick this latest shit up your ass, you bunch of depraved, debased parasites! Fuck you!
