I'm quite familiar with the reality of class society, thanks. I strongly
suspect that Abu-Jamal is getting screwed by the legal system because of
his politics, and that he'll get screwed whether he's guilty or not.
My point is that the fact that someone's a defender of the class
system doesn't by itself morally justify killing him, cop or no.
If I knew more about him, I might support Abu-Jamal's politics. But if
-- what I doubt -- he's guilty in the way the state describes, I won't
support his deed. And neither should you.
