Mumia Abu-Jamal was sentenced to death in 1982 for the 1981 murder of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner. He’s since gained a following for a number of books he’s published from prison, enough that Business Insider columnist Manny Fidel calls him a journalist. Fidel also doesn’t believe that Abu-Jamal killed Faulkner, and reports that he has COVID-19 and congestive heart failure, and the only treatment for the coronavirus is “fweedom.”

He’ll probably receive better treatment for COVID on death row than senior citizens in New York.

Abu-Jamal’s supporters said he was “gravely ill” and worsening … back in 2015.
