Capital punishment opponents everywhere are celebrating the fact that former Black Panther, Mumia Abu-Jamal, will not be executed by the state of Philadelphia.

Abu-Jamal was convicted of killing a white police officer in 1982. Celebrities, particularly those in the Hip Hop community, have been very vocal about his innocence, claiming that the selection of the jury was racially biased and the evidence, including eye witness testimony, was not enough to warrant Abu-Jamal’s arrest.
