Prison Radio
Mumia Abu-Jamal

“Mad Nation.”

Another school shooting. 17 souls gone. Teachers, students, and staff. America, which bills itself as the greatest of nations, is as helpless as a kitten. It has no solution.

Today in school, students have about as much protection as did we who, as students, were told in the fifties and sixties to duck and cover under our desks in the event of a nuclear bombing. Today, they’re told to lock themselves in a classroom or a closet. No protection, none at all.

When over 20 babies were killed in new England several years ago, I said nothing would change. Today, years later, America, a mad nation.

From imprisoned nation, this is Mumia Abu-Jamal.
