Summary:
The case has become a lightning rod for the debate about capital punishment in America. And after nearly 20 years of appeals and delays, it appears to be coming to an end, one way or another. Mumia Abu-Jamal was a reporter in Philadelphia. On the night of December 9, 1981, he intervened when he saw a police officer struggling with his brother. Exactly what happened next is unclear, but Officer Daniel Faulkner was fatally wounded and Jamal was found at the scene with a .38 caliber handgun beside him. The trial was closely followed and plagued with difficulty and anger--Jamal was expelled 13 times in all and openly criticized his attorney. The state won a conviction and Jamal was sentenced to death, but he then took his case to the people, granting numerous interviews and writing a bestselling book. DEATH ROW RADICAL is a comprehensive examination of this high-profile case, from the events of that long-ago night to the fateful decisions made in 1999. Among the many people interviewed are Jamal's current lawyer, the prosecuting attorney, and actor and activist Alec Baldwin. What emerges is a picture far more complicated than what either side would have us believe, a fascinating portrait of justice, crime, race and publicity with a man's life at stake.
