    fop boycott

    FRATERNAL ORDER OF POLICE BOYCOTT ...
    Friday November 10th 2006 7:17 AM

    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.

    That list has been around a while. I don't buy any of their products because of the support they have given this maggot.

    An interesting article from the other side of the table.

    Call me what you want, but I'm not going to stop eating Ben & Jerry's ice cream because they gave a lawyer money.

    I want justice for Ofc. Faulkner. If that leads to someone else, or dismisses the accused, then so be it.

    Now hasn't he had several re-trials. Different juries etc. and he has still been found guilty. If I'm not mistaken I think hes had 4 re-trials now.

    Anyway I know he was found standing over the body of the slain officer and had his gun in his hand that had been fired. Don't know how much more convincing you can get.

    I never liked most of the people on this list anyway so I already boycott them in a way. And Ben & Jerry's ice cream always seems so expensive, though I have been tempted to buy it before. I won't now.

    Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.

    That's enough for me to read. I will no longer support Ben & Jerry's ice cream from here on out. That's the only thing on the list I would have probably been unknowingly supporting anyway.

    May Daniel Faulkner RIP and his killer rot away in hell...
