    "In the latest twist in a case that for nearly three decades has been at the center of the nation's anti-death-penalty movement, the Supreme Court on Tuesday delivered a ruling that could reinstate the convicted cop killer's death sentence.

    The high court overturned, in an unsigned one-paragraph order, a lower court's decision to throw out the death sentence for Abu-Jamal, who has been called death row's most famous inmate and whose case has been a cause celebre for liberal academics, activists and artists."
    Abu-Jamal sentence may be reinstated - Washington Times

    Wow, every day I have to say "Thank goodness for President Bush's Supreme Court picks!

    Did he save America, or what!

    Judging by all of President Bush's policies that have been continued by President Obama,

    maybe there is some truth to the rumor that President Obama will jettison VP Biden in '12,

    and ask VP Cheney to run with him.



    Ya' think?

    Living in the city where Wesley Cook took Daniel Faulkners life, and being a supporter of the death penalty, I hope they do not kill Mr Cook. If they do carry out the execution of this turd it will only make him a martyr to his already crazy followers.

    Did you really think the Court wouldn't grant certiorari?

    Meaningless given the nature of the case.

    And, just to put my two cents in insofar as the loony rev. moon's newspaper headline, it is just as likely that they'll uphold the decision of the Circuit Court of Appeals.

    Realistically, there isn't a justice on that Court who wouldn't want to write on this one, regardless of who made the picks.

    Or do you think the Court is making a political instead of a judicial decision? Damn right wing activists. :eusa_whistle:
