rants, random ramblings, and love.
Imprisoned journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal, an avid supporter of MOVE who initially requested that John Africa represent him during his murder trial, had this to say about the harassment that culminated in the bombing of the MOVE compound:
But on that day, more than MOVE members died. The city died, too. Its politicians died, its media died, its courts died, and its churches and houses of worship died, for they ceased to function, and they served power and money. In a very real sense, the city massacred itself, for one’s faith in such institutions died. They became empty, hollow and dead, but for the shell.
