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.”
Mumia Abu-Jamal is a journalist who has been in prison for over 40 years for a crime he didn't commit. He now has COVID & congestive heart failure. Freedom is the only treatment.https://t.co/an07WmSDeP

Mumia Abu-Jamal is a murderer and has been in jail for over 40 years for killing a cop.

Yes, just as soon as Daniel Faulkner is no longer murdered

Mumia Abu Jamal is a cop killing murderer. While the Hollywood celebs and the pseudo intellects claim his innocence, Mumia himself has never denied killing Officer Faulkner. #BurnInHell

The only freedom he will get is from his mortal coil. He is a cop killer and deserves what he gets.

Let him rot and die in prison.

I fail to see how falling ill absolves someone of a murder conviction.

He’ll probably receive better treatment for COVID on death row than senior citizens in New York.
Supporting cop killers is a character flaw brah.

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