Widow of Philadelphia police officer David Faulkner is writing a book and Mumia Abu-Jamal supporters are not happy:

The New York-based “Free Mumia Abu-Jamal Coalition” is infuriated that Maureen Faulkner – the widow of Philadelphia police office Daniel Faulkner, whom Abu-Jamal was convicted of murdering 25 years ago – is scheduled to appear on the show Thursday to promote her new book, “Murdered by Mumia: A Life Sentence of Pain, Loss and Injustice.” The activists – who claim on their Web site to have demanded “equal time” but “as of yet have gotten no agreement to that” -will protest outside.

Faulkner states:

“After 26 years of this harrowing experience, the purpose of writing this book is to finally find a peaceful closure to my husband’s tragic ending. A jury of 12 convicted Mumia Abu-Jamal of murdering my husband, and for 25 years Abu- Jamal has been on death row acting as if he was a Hollywood superstar or political prisoner . . . He has a voice, and my late husband doesn’t.”
