President Obama’s latest move is sure to disintegrate his relations with law enforcement officials. On Thursday, he appointed Debo Adegbile to a six year post on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. The catch?..Debo Adegbile is a former attorney for convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal. He represented Abu-Jamal in the appeal of his conviction and death sentence for the notorious 1981 shooting death of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner while working at the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund.From CT
A lawyer who represented one of the most infamous cop-killers in American history has been selected by the president to fill a six-year term on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, The Washington Times reported.
Debo Adegbile, a lawyer who represented convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal in his role with the NAACP’s Legal Defense and Educational Fund in an attempt to overturn Abu-Jamal’s death sentence, was announced Thursday as Obama’s appointee to the position. The move prompted an outcry from law enforcement groups.
Abu-Jamal became a cause celebre for the far left after he was convicted in the 1981 murder of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner.
“That’s just the old kick in the teeth to the cops,” John McNesby, president of the Fraternal Order of Police’s Philadelphia chapter, said in a radio appearance Friday morning. “I guess it’s Obama’s goodbye present to police across the nation.”
“This was definitely payback to the FOP through the appointment,” McNesby said, according to the Washington Free Beacon. “This guy was Mumia’s sugar daddy through the appeal process — he did everything and financed the whole thing.”
“I don’t know whether he can be un-appointed but that will be one of our first orders of business when we go down and meet with the new administration in January,” he added. “I don’t know whether that can be done, but we are sure as hell going to try.”
BUT….Not worried about it. He will only have his job for 34 days. Trump takes office Jan 20 so he will be FIRED!!
