Mumia's Best (and Last) Chance for a New Trail: A Legal Update
November 2002 Update

Black death-row prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal's battle in court heats up as case is now on fast track with public hearings set to begin

by Hans Bennett


"Our objective is to win a new and fair trial in this case. At the conclusion of the retrial I want my client to walk out of the courtroom a free person."

On October 23, attorney Robert R. Bryan (attorney for death-row prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal) filed the 4th Step Reply Brief with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, Philadelphia. Because this should be the last round of reply briefs, Bryan estimates that the public hearing of arguments should begin within three months. After the hearing, the panel of judges will then decide whether to grant Abu-Jamal a new trial.

NYPD Installs "Sky Watch" In Harlem Neighborhood
The NYPD has installed a patrol tower in a Harlem neighborhood in an effort to cut crime in the high-risk neighborhood.

The two-story booth tower, called Sky Watch, gives the officer sitting inside a better vantage point from which to monitor the area. Officers in the booth have access to a spotlight, sensors, and four cameras. The tower is portable and can be moved to the areas that need it most.

EDA Report: 2006 Election was Hacked - Actual Dem margin was 4% greater in exit polls!!
The Election Defense Alliance sent out a press release last Thursday with its analysis of the 2006 exit poll data and "adjusted" results. Once again a US election reveals systematic and statistically impossible variances in official results. The analysis shows that overwhelming Democratic turnout simply overwhelmed preprogrammed adjustments in voting machines. This explains the confidence of Karl Rove in interviews prior to the election. America has a very brief window of opportunity to rescue the electoral process with a Dem congress that wasn't supposed to win a majority.

By Deborah Davies

They are just some of the victims of wholesale torture taking place inside the U.S. prison system that we uncovered during a four-month investigation for Channel 4 . It's terrible to watch some of the videos and realise that you're not only seeing torture in action but, in the most extreme cases, you are witnessing young men dying.

Violent Cops REWARDED with FREE COFFEE: James P. Chasse Jr.
Portland Police Union fosters and reinforces an US vs. THEM mentality that condones police on citizen violence. The Police Bureau itself silently accepts the mocking tone of the police union and its insensitivity to the families of innocent victims. My question is; "are these cops really untouchable?" Why does Portland, a progressive city, living in the 2006...the 21st century for goodness sakes...allow the police to practice violence against minorities. When I read these reports and look at the history of Portland I am reminded of the deep south of the 1940's. The city is populated with a silent majority that condones by remaining silent the lynching of minorities. The city quietly accepts the slander and innuendo of minorities by the secret society. The population permits the secret society to behave violently in public and they are unrestrained by either legal or political means. The secret society mocks the public because they know that they own the public. Portland's greatest problem is that it is living in the past; it is retarded by its unrelenting deferance to its own backward-ass police force.

The chair (Sessenbrenner, still chairman of the Judiciary Committee and leader of the lame ducks) called for a voice vote, and Kucinich cast the only no vote. It was all over in 15 minutes.

First-hand account by Dr. Alex Hershaft: "After the vote, I rode the elevator with Sensenbrenner and chief AETA sponsor Petri. I told them I was there to lobby against their bill. Sensenbrenner replied "don't blame me; I was just managing the bill for this guy," pointing to Petri, who smiled sheepishly. The whole thing was absolutely surreal."

Do you have a brother, uncle, parent, cousin or other relative who has recently been incarcerated? If so, the FBI has its tendrils in your genome. Care about your privacy? So what. Never signed a consent form giving the FBI permission to cache your genetic information into their DNA database? So what. The assumption is that, by breaking the law (or by being in the wrong place at the wrong time), your relative waived any right to privacy, and by extension, so did you. This is the New World Order, where you have no rights, no privacy, and no expectation of anything but abuse of authority and corruption from those in power.

Interior Department to Hold Illegal Closed-Door Meeting With Corporate Execs
Partners Outdoors is perhaps the most important public-lands meeting you will never get to attend. It is "by invitation only" and, as usual, YOU ARE NOT INVITED.

It is also, or so I suspect, the biggest regularly-scheduled Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) violation that occurs each year involving federal employees and the recreation industry. If that assessment is correct, then this event is held in violation of the law. Whether legal, or not, the public has a right to know what is transpiring behind these closed doors.

"Collusion Outdoors" as I have referred to this event for many years, is sponsored by the American Recreation Coalition, ARC's Recreation Roundtable and each of the federal land management agencies. Pasted below is a condensed memorandum recently distributed within the Bureau of Land management which gives a brief, and much-sanitized, overview.
