Guess Which Liberal College is Using a Cop Killer for it’s Commencement…


Shot an Officer in the Back...

Convicted Philadelphia cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal has been selected as the commencement speaker for a Vermont college.

Goddard College announced that the infamous inmate will address its graduates at Sunday’s ceremony.

Undergraduate students receiving their degrees selected Abu-Jamal as their commencement speaker, the Plainfield, Vt., school said.

Abu-Jamal was convicted in the 1981 slaying of Officer Daniel Faulkner and sentenced to death. The high-profile and long-running case was in the news for decades as Abu-Jamal fought the death penalty; the sentence was later reduced to life in prison without parole.

Goddard said Abu-Jamal’s speech was prerecorded by Prison Radio.

The college says it holds 20 commencement ceremonies each year so students in each degree program can have personalized graduations.

“As a reflection of Goddard’s individualized and transformational educational model, our commencements are intimate affairs where each student serves as her or his own valedictorian, and each class chooses its own speaker,” Goddard College Interim President Bob Kenny said in a statement. “Choosing Mumia as their commencement speaker, to me, shows how this newest group of Goddard graduates expresses their freedom to engage and think radically and critically in a world that often sets up barriers to do just that.”

    OK the Dean should be FIRED and never allowed to Dean again.. This is NOTHING more than telling students see you can kill a Police Officer get 3 hots and a cot and later go target some mindless Liberals to tell them it was OK you did it and it was racism… This is the epitome of Insanity…

    What I think is bad is that someone over turned his death sentenc.

    Key words “think radically” is that what these liberal schools are teaching? Having this sickening cop killer make the speach is against everything decent. This bunch of grads is heading right for ISIS

  5. This is no graduation, but a degradation! It’s dumb a** thinking. They had better go through class again and again and see what is wrong with their choice. They want the devil to speak to them? How sick!!!!!!!!!!

    Having no one with the good sense or guts to tell these kids how stupid this is is indicative or all that’s wrong with education in America. Wonder what kind of citizens are coming out of that school?

    No, it shows that they’re rebellious little a holes thumbing their noses at the law and especially at cops…murdered cops. Just what we need more of in today’s world. They’ll make fine, fine thugs and gang members. …or possibly even his fellow cop killers.

    This is simply bad taste. You are awarding a person convicted of MURDER to be a role model for our future leaders. Society and your schoolers are a** backwards.
