NOON, Tuesday, December 4, 2007, at The A-Space, 4722 Baltimore Avenue, West Philadelphia

A press-conference organized by Journalists for Mumia Abu-Jamal featured a presentation of newly discovered crime scene photos, as well as presentations by Pam Africa of The International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal, and three local journalists: David A. Love, Linn Washington Jr., and Dave Lindorff.

INVITATION: This week will mark the 26th anniversary of the December 9, 1981 shooting death of Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner and the arrest of radical journalist and former Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal. December 6 will mark the release of a new book titled "Murdered By Mumia," written by Maureen Faulkner and Michael Smerconish. The Philadelphia Inquirer has already begun a three-part series that features excerpts from "Murdered By Mumia." The media-attention will continue this week with "Murdered By Mumia" scheduled to be featued on such news programs as The Today Show, The O'Reilly Factor, Hardball with Chris Matthews, and many more.

In light of this significant week, we have organized our press conference to present "the other side of the story," to the media so that it can be fairly balanced alongside the story presented by Faulkner, Smerconish, and others who argue that Mumia does not deserve a new trial and should be executed. These activists and award-winning journalists who have thoroughly researched the case and concluded that Abu-Jamal's 1982 trial was blatantly unfair, and that there is considerable evidence suggesting that Abu-Jamal is in fact innocent, as he has maintained from the very beginning.

Polakoff, which suggest more evidence that basic investigative protocol was violated by police from the earliest moments of the killing. Schiffmann and Bennett's website,, displays four of the photos to make these key points about the new evidence:
