Justice Is Just an Emotional Feeling: Judge Sabo’s 1995-97 Kangaroo Court

Michael Schiffmann, Journalists for Mumia | When on August 2, 1995 the defense tried to subpoena clerks from the Administrative Office of the Pennsylvania Courts as well as the Jury Commissioner of the County of Philadelphia as part of their PCRA petition argument that jury pools were not drawn “from a fair cross section of the community,” Sabo silenced attorney Wolkenstein and had her locked up in a jail cell instead. All subpoenas were quashed, leading attorney Jonathan Piper to state during the defense’s closing argument on September 11, 1995: “We have been precluded from presenting any evidence with respect to the racially-biased manner in which jury pools were selected in Philadelphia in 1982.” This is particularly stupefying since

Twelve and a half years later, the 3rd Circuit Court of appeals (1) denies Abu-Jamal relief on the question of racism in jury selection because of an alleged lack of defense data on the racial composition of the jury pool, the very question Wolkenstein tried to address when Sabo locked her up, and (2) declares that whatever Judge Sabo did during the PCRA hearings can no longer be part of any federal review, including his move to block the defense from getting hold of the data that the court now demands. more...  0 Comments

First, events in the Middle East and the increasingly obvious injustice of Israeli policy towards the Palestinians. Second, the stubborn and repeated re-emergence of Palestinian struggle, without which, we wouldn't be talking about the issue at all. more...  0 Comments
