U.S. Supreme Court Declines to Review Mumia Abu-Jamal's Case

On Tuesday, (10/11/2011), the U.S. Supreme Court declined to review Mumia Abu-Jamal's case. Prosecutor's will now have to accept the life sentence already issued, or pursue a second death penalty sentence. If City Prosecutors do decide to pursue a re-hearing, it will cost the city millions of dollars. I'm going to sit back and wait to see if the city continues to waste money pursuing this.

Meanwhile, on the news last night, there were complaints about how much money protester's for Occupy Philly are costing the city. I heard it's costing the city around $400,000 dollars. I plan to go out there and be part of the problem on Saturday.

What I would like to know, is how much it costs the city to keep police officers at the local Wal-Mart in South Philly for security purposes. Also, how much extra does it cost to have them there in higher numbers during the Holiday season. Why can't Wal-Mart hire it's own security? That would create more jobs for unemployed people and less police officers will be up at Wal-Mart laughing & joking, instead of patrolling the streets.
