Michael A. Smerconish literally wrote the book on the 1981 murder of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner. “Murdered by Mumia,” co-written by Faulkner’s widow, lays out the case against convicted killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, whom Marc Lamont Hill last night in a birthday tweet called “one of the leading intellectuals” of his generation.

Hill took exception to what he took as Smerconish’s implication that he supports cop-killing. We don’t see that in Smerconish’s tweet; Abu-Jamal is a convicted cop killer and he does have a Twitter handle — and he’s had more than three decades of birthdays since Faulkner’s murder.

Can Townhall’s Katie Pavlich get in on this?

Yes, this is the same man who called the Christopher Dorner manhunt a real-life “Django Unchained.”
