Help Stop The Naming of A NYC Street After Mumia

(Update on Petition

As of today we have nearly 700 signatures on the petition. This after only 48 hours of it being online. Compare that to the almost 350 signatures that the Mumia devotees have managed to get since Sept. I think it safe to say that NYC will not have it's streets stained by the name of Mumia.
Still, let us continue to spread the word and get the word out. Let nobody doubt our resolve to halt this injustice in it's tracks)
Having profaned a street in a suburb of France the pro-Jamal zealots have now decided to repeat their "success" here in the United States by having a street in Harlem, New York City, named after the convicted cop-killer.

Pursuant to this goal, the Mumia devotees have started a petition and have even gone so far as to raise money for T.V. commercial spots as a means of bringing attention to their cause.

To name a street after a confirmed killer, cult apologist, and virulent anti-American fanatic like Jamal would be a vile testament to the power of propaganda and an ugly reminder that ignorance has again triumphed over common sense and human decency.

In order to counter the Jamal supporters efforts I have put together a petition of my own that I encourage everyone to sign and circulate amongst your family and friends.
The text of which is as follows:

*There is currently a campaign underway to honor a convicted cop-killer from Philadelphia named Mumia Abu-Jamal.

*Mumia Abu-Jamal was convicted for the 1981 killing of a Philadelphia Police Officer.

*It does a disservice to the citizens of New York City to name a street after an un-repentant murderer.

*The facts of the case are available at


We, the undersigned, call upon the New York City Council to not name any street within the city of New York after Mumia Abu-Jamal. As the convicted murderer of a Philadelphia Police Officer in 1981, Mumia Abu-Jamal is not deserving of such an honor. To name a street after an imprisoned killer of a civil servant is not only a slap in the face to the law enforcement community, but also the public at large.

Go to to sign the petition and let us show that the citizens of this country have no interest in honoring murderers.

Thanks so much for bringing this to my attention.

We are not going to let this happen in our city!

We want streets named after heroes, educators, people who give to the world, not take away. Why not a street named after Wesley Autrey? A regular citizen who jumped onto subway tracks to save a stranger who had fallen from a seizure. He risked his life to save another human being.

Screw Mumia whats-his-face. He can rot in prison until he meets his maker.

Found this link through a CPD blog.

Alderman tried to pull a similar stunt here. Proposal was shot down.

For Justice!
