Paris suburb names street for cop-killer Abu-Jamal
By Jennifer Lin
Inquirer Staff Writer
As Philadelphians cope with another police slaying, news comes that a
suburb of Paris has named a street for Mumia Abu-Jamal, convicted
of the 1981 murder of Police Officer Daniel Faulkner.
Hundreds of supporters of Abu-Jamal attended a ceremony on April 29
to dedicate the Rue Mumia-Abu Jamal in the city of St.-Denis.
"In France, they see him as a towering figure," said Suzanne Ross,
cochair of the Free Mumia Coalition of New York City, who was part
of the ceremony.
Of the French support of Abu-Jamal, she added: "These are the people
who sheltered Ira Einhorn" - a fugitive who was finally returned to
Philadelphia and convicted of killing his girlfriend, Holly Maddux.
