Idolized Cop-Killer Mumia Abu-Jamal May Get Another Trial

It was 37 years ago that Mumia Abu-Jamal, a one-time taxi driver and radio reporter, was convicted of killing a young policeman, Daniel Faulkner. Over the years, Abu-Jamal has become a big celebrity on the left and a symbol of racial injustice in America.

Now, an appeals court judge has ruled that because of the apparent bias of a judge who heard his 2012 appeal, Abu-Jamal may get another trial.
