Mumia Abu-Jamal: A Progress Report
Your Own Pressure Valve—“Free Your Mind Friday” on Leid Stories!
Keith Cook, the brother of political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal, gives a progress report on efforts to safeguard Mumia’s health and demand accountability by the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections for his deteriorated condition.
Last Monday (March 30), Mumia was found passed out from diabetic shock and almost in a comatose state. It has since been determined that he had been diabetic for quite some time in incarceration, but was neither diagnosed nor treated for the disease. In recent months, Mumia’s health has deteriorated significantly, leading his family and supporters to contend that it’s a deliberate attempt by the state to hasten his death through negligence.
