Colin Kaepernick Demands Release of Convicted Cop Killer

Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has called for the release of cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, who was convicted for the 1981 murder of police officer and U.S. Army veteran Daniel Faulkner.

During a virtual news conference on Monday, Kaepernick called upon the Philadelphia district attorney’s office to release Abu-Jamal, claiming that he was framed after falling prey to police brutality.

“Mumia has been in prison longer than I’ve been alive,” Kaepernick said in the press conference, later adding: “Since 1981, Mumia has maintained his innocence. His story has not changed.”

“Mumia was shot, brutalized, arrested, and chained to a hospital bed,” the former NFL star added.

Kaepernick emphasized that the Black Lives Matter movement demands that Abu-Jamal be released from prison so that his legacy matters.

“We’re in the midst of a movement that says Black Lives Matter, and if that’s truly the case, then it means that Mumia’s life and legacy must matter,” he said. “And the causes that he sacrificed his life and freedom for must matter as well.”

As reported by Newsbusters, Abu-Jamal was a former member of the Black Panthers who had as many as four witnesses testify that he murdered Officer Faulkner.

“Employed by a radio station, Abu-Jamal was a member of the Black Panthers. During a routine traffic stop in Philadelphia in 1981, Faulkner stopped a vehicle belonging to Abu-Jamal’s younger brother William Cook,” the outlet reported. “A physical confrontation ensued, and Abu-Jamal, who was nearby at the time, shot Faulkner in the back and in the face, the latter shot while the officer lay bleeding on the ground. Four witnesses testified to this.”

“Abu-Jamal was also shot in the confrontation and, while recovering in a hospital, admitted he shot the policeman and said he hoped Faulkner would die,” the report added.

Back in 2016, Kaepernick launched a protest movement when he said that America has been allowing cops to “murder” black people and demanded that police officers undergo further training.

“People of color have been targeted by police,” Kaepernick said. “So that’s a large part of it, and they’re government officials. They are put in place by the government. So that’s something that this country has to change. There’s things we can do to hold them more accountable. Make those standards higher. You have people that practice law and are lawyers and go to school for eight years, but you can become a cop in six months and don’t have to have the same amount of training as a cosmetologist.”

Following the violent protests and riots in response to George Floyd’s death at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer, Colin Kaepernick opposed civil protests, arguing that civility “leads to death.”

“When civility leads to death, revolting is the only logical reaction,” Kaepernick tweeted. “The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears, because your violence has brought this resistance. We have the right to fight back!”

  1. Kaepernick you stupid puke did you even read what this guy did? He shot the officer in the face as he layed bleeding on the ground after he already shot him in the back. You want him to be released from jail why??? His legacy is that of a criminal associated with a criminal group. You want him as your roommate or neighbor? I sure don’t!!! The man has no moral conscience or compass.

    • AGREE WITH YOU SIR I WOULD NOT WANT HIM AS A NEIGHTBOR

      • It is my opinion that this criminal should have already been executed for this heinous crime. Colin K has proved nothing but what an idiot he is. Furthermore no one really cares what you think Colin. Go crawl back under your rock. You puke.

    • He is a stupid puke and he should just move to a country where he can be happy and we dont have to listen to his bullshit!

      • Sooo Would Colin feel the same way if the thug was white and the cop was black I think not. My question is how after all this time why hasn’t this thug been executed? Maybe they should release him so justice may be served. I know many guys who are tired of practicing shooting at black shilloettes against a white background.

    • Kaepernick is a woke moron liberal & will never see your rational point of view! They have been brainwashed into believing that everyone owes him something! Due to his tenure in the NFL, he has the ability to bypass living near criminals! and while he sits in his multi-million $ mansion with security, he can afford to run his mouth about letting murderers go free! This scum needs to stay in prison where he belongs! I was not aware that murderers should be paroled especially since he so callously shot & killed a police officer? It’s entitled imbeciles like Colin Kaepernick that continue to open the divide between races all the while pulling the race card!

  2. WHO the devil is he to “demand”???

    • I agree. He’s a no body.

    • Who the hell is Kaepernick to demand the release of prisoners just because of their skin color. Kaepernick needs to crawl in a hole an shut up. He is not that important to be demanding anything, he is just a washed up loud mouth ex football player looking for attention.

  3. Oh yeah, lets let a cop killer out even though he confessed. How stupid can people be?

  4. Only if Colin takes his place in prison to serve out Jamal’s sentence!!!

  5. Can somebody please explain why we’re supposed to care about kaperSNOT and anything he has to say?!? Hes so OVER!!!

  6. Hey kaepuke, go to he$$ you are nothing but a dumb worthless idiot and should be thrown out of the country permanently!

  7. Your Demand is nothing but hot air. You are a disgrace to America.

  8. Hey! Give Kaepernick a break. Can’t you see he’s obviously suffering from sever traumatic brain damage! He’s washed up in football so now this attention whore is looking for a new stage to draw attention to himself.

  9. Obviously Colin Kaepernick is a “legend in his own mind” and believes that his opinion actually matters, as Bugs Bunny said so eloquently, “WHAT A MOROON”!!

  10. YOU PLAY YOU PAY**********You are a worthless piece of 💩💩💩. Hey toilet brush head —maybe you need to clean up your shit before you poke your nose in somebody else’s business. If it was a white guy you wouldn’t give a shit. You are a RACIST LOWLIFE SCUMBAG. F**K YOU.

  11. You, Colin are a real piece of work. You are demanding???? who the hell do you think you are? Do you have a job yet?

    • Kaepernivk is a frigging, prevaricating,malfeasant piece of human feces!!! HE SHOULD SHUT HIS BULL-CRAP SPEWING MOUTH!!!HE IS A ROTTEN SPOILED HAS-BEEN JACKASS!!! GIVE HIM AN ENEMA, THEN BURY HIM IN A MATCHBOX!!!!HE IS OBVIOUSLY MORE CONCERNED FOR THE CRIMINAL THAN FOR THE POLICE 👮‍♂️ OFFICER!

    • I concur with you! Kaepernick is a frigging, prevaricating piece of human feces! HE SHOULD SHUT HIS BULL-CRAP SPEWING MOUTH! HE IS A ROTTEN SPOILED HAS-BEEN JACKASS!!! GIVE HIM AN ENEMA, THEN BURY HIM IN A MATCHBOX!

  12. He should have already met his maker. Would tell that phoney terrible quarterback to stay out of politics and keep all his racist hate and stuff it up his azz.

  13. Kap,your mouth got u where ? When u going to learn too shut up!!Your were a hi paid athlete, when are you guys going to learn to stay with what you no ! Every one of the BLM victims were criminals why don’t you people check into all the and,ifs,buts,before you start making comments. Iam about done with supporting all athletics. Please do what you know and let the professionals who’s dealing with all there criminal do their job.

  14. Did I miss something I didn’t read about any new evidence that came to light or was suppressed by the DA or police back in 1981. No DNA evidence that suggest someone else killed the officer or that Mr. Jamal wasn’t at the crime scene my point is it’s going to take new evidence not a demand to free a convicted killer.

  15. Fine with me as long as Kaepernick takes his cell in prison.

  16. Snickerdoodles or what ever your name is just shut the f##k up. You don’t have a clue about America.

  17. Kaepernick you’re not too bright. Look at what this person did first, before you speak and make a fool of yourself. He killed a police officer. And, if you had read ahead about Floyd, he was not breathing because he took an OVERDOSE of FENTANYL, that’s why he wasn’t breathing . Don’t try to show off without knowing the facts. Thank you!

  18. one word describes his thinking — democrat

  19. Nothing special about that Idiot…He’ll probably ask Biden to have him release…

  20. FOUR WITNESSES vzAgainst a SUSPECT is HARD EVIDENCE. GOD’S LAW REQUIRES ONLY TWO. IN This CASE….the PUNI….the PUNISHMENT FITS the CRIME.. From SamuraiQueen. 😄

  21. KaeperFUCKER demands, DEMANDS, release of a cop killer……NO SHIT SHERLOCK? ……WELL, I demand that someone shut this cocksucker up……make him disappear, go away……..tune- him up. What ever is needed to shut him the FUCK UP……my opinion

  22. Who is this POS TO “DEMAND” anything? What authority does he have to “DEMAND” anything???

  23. CK you’re as stupid as you are hate-full and ugly. America is going to turn back to the right thanks to morons like you!

  24. BLM has nothing whatever to do with the black community. It is a leftist tool for inciting riots, attacking right-wing believers, burning down homes and businesses, and killing. It is funded by Soros, who hates this country and wants to destroy it from within. Colin had better remember that America is filled with a Silent Majority that can only be pushed so far. If his kind of hatred continues, he will have awakened a giant and filled it with a terrible resolve.

  25. Who the hell gives a crap what Colin Kaepernick thinks? He’s already proven himself to be the stupidest person on the planet.

  26. Forget it. Let him be roasted in jail

  27. This man should have been put to death. ALL lives matter. He just happened to be a black man that executed a police officer. These murderers do not belong on the street. They belong 6 feet under. Grasp that you idiot. When will this crap end?

  28. STFU Kaepernick! We don’t care what you have to say, you are IRRELEVANT!

  29. I do not know if the guy should be released or not, but if he killed a useless scum cop, the should at least get a medal.

    • Andy. You are as much of an idiot as Colin. If you don’t like our laws- leave. Don’t ever say scumbag useless cop. I take that very personally. Have a good life with your buddy colin

  30. who does colin ass h__e thinks he is demanding anything. a cop killer who looks out of his mind the two of them have things in common . they are nuts..

  31. Mr. Kaepernick , I dare not use any other term other than a justifiable respect for humanity which YOU certainly seek to degrade . Aside from what any other (also justifiable) thought has been launched to your way of reasoning toward the tragic reasons which caused the tragic death of a human being by your wanton safeguarding a convicted murderer (whether or not he was Caucasian , of African heritage , Asiatic , Hindu, or whichever race of whomever you wish to support etc. etc. – I can not fathom the furthest supportive thought that you so heinously be supportive of. The only thought which compels me to give some logic to your somewhat prejudicial mannerism would be that of a strong hate for authority since the brutal slaying was perpetrated to a Caucasian police officer . Such hate can only bring atrocious violence as in this particular case. Just maybe (YOU) should request to be admitted as the life saving attorney for Mr. Jamal , since it would seem that your logic is superior to that of those who have assisted in defense of Mr. Jamal and naturally well above the juries of various ethnic background. My compliments on your knowledge and success in the sports world for which you seem to have had quite a bit of success. By the way I personally do not think that this unfortunate murdering of another human being had anything to do with the so popular and worldly uproar on who is just and who is wrong . Again I compliment you on what you have had success in , but leave justice to be the purview of those who have been and are engaged in such manners.

    • Andy. You are as much of an idiot as Colin. If you don’t like our laws- leave. Don’t ever say scumbag useless cop. I take that very personally. Have a good life with your buddy colin

  32. Fuck kaeperdick and all his ilk.

  33. Kaepernick himself should be in prison for desecrating our Flag and degrading every person who served in the military of every race creed and color. Many died, lost limbs and got wounded for what that flag represents. He is a coward and an over, over, over, paid has been who was never that great of a player. He accomplished his goal of getting attention Just like a toddler Who makes a lot of noise UNTILL he gets someone to pay attention to them. The attention he gets is to shut him up. Full of sound and noise but he signifies Absolutely nothing but Treason, Racism, Hate and supports crime. This pathetic person is a disgrace to America, Sports, his race and most importantly God.
