This Patriot-News article looks at Mumia Abu-Jamal, a convicted cop-killer on Death Row who has collected support from an odd mix of radicals, politicos, academics and celebrities while coming to symbolize all that seems wrong with the death penalty. From direct mail to the Internet, Berlin to Beverly Hills, Abu-Jamal is billed as America's political prisoner. (Aug. 20, 1995)
