    Police Boycott

    Dec 8, 2006 4:49 PM
    Subject FOP Boycott
    Body: The Fraternal Order of Police National Delegation in attendance, voted unanimously to begin a boycott of persons, products and companies associated with the supporting of convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal.

    In case you don't know, he was convicted in the 1981 killing of Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner under overwhelming evidence. The act was an especially brutal and sadistic murder that still haunts the family, friends and coworkers of Officer Faulkner.

    The New York Shields, a police brotherhood organization, presented Officer Faulkner's family with a Medal of Valor at their 1999 Police Memorial Breakfast.

    Convict Abu-Jamal has written a book, "Live from Death Row," and attempted to place himself in a celebrity status as a result of his criminal behavior.

    Others have supported his pathetic attempt to gain stardom and freedom, all the while spitting in the face of Officer Faulkner, his family and every single law enforcement officer in the United States .

    The F. O. P. has announced the formal boycotting of the following:

    1. Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Products (donators to a defense fund for the killer).

    2. Actor Paul Newman, and his products (an outspoken supporter of the killer).

    3. Actress Susan Sarandon (supporter of this convicted killer).

    4. Filmmakers Spike Lee, Oliver Stone and John Landis (supporters of the killer).

    5. Writers Norman Mailer and Joyce Carol Oates (supporters of the killer).

    6. Super model Naomi Campbell (supporter of the killer).

    7. Musicians Sting, David Byrne and Michael Stipe of REM, (supporters of the killer).

    8. The Backstreet Boys who are performing "free" benefit concerts for the
    killer's defense fund.

    As a side note, one of their "benefit concerts" scheduled for Baltimore, MD had to be canceled when Baltimore police officers refused to work the overtime shifts for site security at the concert.

    As you may not know, a tape recorded statement made by this heinous convicted killer, was played at the spring graduation commencement ceremony at Evergreen State College, in the state of Washington (June 1999.) This resulted in over 800 graduates walking out and another two dozen turning their backs during the killer's three minute diatribe of hate. The F.O.P.'s position is getting widespread coverage in the media, as well it should. The members of the New York Shields stand with our fellow brothers across this country in strongly
    supporting this boycott and honoring the memory of slain Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner.

    We urge you to participate in this boycott and request that you pass this e-mail on to your coworkers, business partners, and family and friends.

    Didn't the FOP do this boycott once before as well? I assumed this was an ongoing thing, but this article makes it sound new...

    No problem, I already didn't care for the ones being boycotted, with the exception of David Byrne. I haven't listened to him since Talking Heads though and even then it was only on the radio.

    Anyone who supports a brutal killer like that needs to be removed from society anyhow. What I want to know is why anyone cares about their opinions to begin with.
    1= overpriced, stupidly high in fat and sugar
    2= overblown ego and substandard salad dressing
    3= janet from Rocky Horror
    4= substandard 'cry me a river cause I'm sooooo oppressed' movies
    5= yawn and same as #4, just for books instead (Oates is a fav of Oprah )
    6= She'll be up for the same thing herself soon
    7= Overinflated egos for no real good damn reason
    8= You GOTTA be kidding me, the Backdoor Boys? They just want him out before one of them gets busted for possession.

    I reiterate, WHY do people listen to those assclowns?

    And before you start quoting me the date on the post, here's the article's entry at truthorfiction.com. So either the date is wrong, or tof.com is really fast.

    None of them worth my precious time. But then the FOP openly supported Clinton, even AFTER he got caught with his face in the cherry bowl. Don't know how conservative they really are any more.
