Manufacturing Guilt

The Labor Action Committee is proud to present a short film by Stephen Vittoria, writer/director of “Mumia – Long Distance Revolutionary,” Keith Cook, Mumia Abu-Jamal’s older brother and Rachel Wolkenstein, lawyer for Mumia, and legal consultant on this film. Co-produced by Noelle Hanrahan of Prison Radio.

“Manufacturing Guilt” is a riveting narrative description, with graphics, of how Mumia was framed and sent to death row for a crime he didn’t commit.

“’Manufacturing Guilt’ highlights truth. Everybody who has a heart for justice, passion for truth, and concern for the innocent should see this film.” – Keith Cook (Mumia’s eldest brother)

“’Manufacturing Guilt’ is a chilling and vital inside view of what happened to my beloved father Mumia Abu-Jamal on that forsaken night that forever changed his life—and ours.” – Jamal Hart (Mumia’s oldest son)

A documentary movie about Mumia Abu-Jamal (Mumia: Long Distance Revolutionary) had been scheduled to open at the Cineplex-12 Theater in Newark, N.J., this spring. The documentary has been playing to full houses on extended runs in more than 20 cities in the U.S. and Canada, including Oakland, New York, Philly, New Orleans, Seattle, D.C, and Calgary, and the Newark theater had planned a gala opening–until Shaquille O’Neal, co-owner of the theater, stepped in and cancelled it at the last minute.

Shaquille O’Neal has long been a wannabe cop. He says he was “raised” by the Newark Police; he’s a big supporter of the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) and a “reserve police officer” in a number of cities; on a “ride along” in Baton Rouge police internal affairs accused him (then cleared him) of flushing a suspect’s head in a toilet. His canceling of the movie furthers a 30-year campaign by the FOP to see that Mumia dies in prison.
