Colin Kaepernick Calls For Cop Killer's Prison Release

Former San Francisco Forty-Niner quarterback and current activist Colin Kaepernick is callling for the release of convicted cop killer and former Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal.

Kaepernick says while the nation is in the midst of a 'Black Lives Matter' movement, then it means Mumia's life and legacy must matter.

Kaepernick says Abu-Jamal was framed and not given a fair trial in the murder of Philadelphia Police officer Daniel Faulkner in Dec., 1981.

Kaepernick says the causes Abu-Jamal sacrificed his life and freedom for must matter as well, that's why he's fighting for the man's freedom.
