3 futures for Mumia: Death, Life In Jail or Freedom


[parts 2 and 3, after the continued]

"I'm suprised at my disbelief."
"There are several Guantanamos in every state in the union."
"Without struggle there is nothing."
~Mumia Abu-Jamal

Mumia's statements ring true. Especially that last one -- even in its most fundamental sense, in nature, there can be no continuing of life itself without struggle. When struggle ends, life ends.

At this point Mumia's death sentence can either be upheld or denied. But it appears he has exhaused his legal options as far as getting out of jail. So even if he wins his next appeal attempt, the best he can hope for in this legal system is life in jail. Which leaves the third option: freedom by any means. I'm not sure if we'll see that, but it remains a possibility.
