Senator Pat Toomey--Standing For Justice

Watch my remarks on the Senate floor

Recently, President Obama nominated Mr. Debo Adegbile to serve as Assistant Attorney General for the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division. I oppose this nomination.

Mr. Adegbile volunteered to represent Mumia Abu-Jamal, who murdered Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in December 1981. As Officer Faulkner's widow explained, Adegbile was part of a legal team that extended her grief for 32 years, spreading misinformation about the crime and falsely proclaiming Abu-Jamal's innocence.

Officer Faulkner can no longer speak for himself. We speak for him now. Therefore, I will continue to urge my colleagues to oppose Mr. Adegbile's nomination and defeat it on the Senate floor.

I remember as a young child when that happened! Obama just doesn't care. Anything to further his own agenda and not research the facts. Anything for a "brother"

This is simply appaling and shameful and I am embarrassed that Toomey would say such repulsive garbage from the senate floor! Everyone deserves a fair trial and this man did not receive one!

“Mumia Abu-Jamal was sentenced to death for the murder of a police officer in 1982 after a trial that failed to meet international standards.

In this report Amnesty International conducts a full analysis of the trial of Mumia Abu-Jamal including the background and atmosphere prevailing in the city of Philadelphia in 1982 and the possible political influences that may have prevented him from receiving an impartial and fair hearing.”

–Amnesty International

Read about what the cops did to a one Freeman guy who they knew to be the killer. The right wing diatribe out there is shameful and none of this would be happening if the president of the United States of America did not have an African father. I am ashamed of you Toomey, would Sestak have said this from the senate floor? I think not, just the wall street goon!

Toomey speaks about the "confession" in the hospital yet there is a police report that says -

"Hospital confession
Two witnesses, security officer Priscilla Durham and Police Officer Garry Bell, testified that while Abu-Jamal was at hospital, he acknowledged that he shot Faulkner by proclaiming, "I shot the motherfucker, and I hope the motherfucker dies."[20] The hospital doctors have claimed that Abu-Jamal was not capable of making such a statement during that time.[21] The original report of Gary Wakshul, a police officer who accompanied Abu-Jamal to and at the hospital, relates that "the negro male made no comments".[22] Over two months afterwards, when interviewed by police Internal Affairs officers, Wakshul remembered hearing Abu-Jamal's alleged confession. He blamed "emotional trauma" for the delay.[22] When the defense attempted to call Wakshul for cross-examination, it was reported that he was on vacation and unavailable. Wakshul never testified in court and his original statement that "the negro male made no comments" was never admitted as evidence.[22]"

It is a terrible crime that such a young man died in the line of duty. It is made inexcusable by framing an innocent man for the murder. All the witnesses have recanted saying they were pressured by the Philly police or were terrified of them. Will we ever know the truth? Sounds like a good one for Cold CASE - maybe they could get at the truth!

John Adams volunteered to represent the English soldiers who committed the Boston massacre. Everybody gets a lawyer in this country. We can't blacklist every lawyer who takes pro bono work on a controversial case.
