Interview With Mumia
re: Governor Ryan's Commutations

[Col. recorded 1/11/03]

:47 seconds

MAJ: Hell of a move. I mean you know it ain’t perfect, but it is close.

[Laughter]

NMH: What does it mean for the death penalty?

MAJ: I think it is too early to really say, really. I think it is a historic move, an unprecedented move. And it is so kind of beyond the pale of what has gone before that it can have unforeseen effects, both negatively and positively, so we shall see. We don’t know how it will change.

You know there might be blowback, there might emulation. You know. Politicians are funny people and one thing that this rather obscure governor of Illinois has done is he has made himself an historical figure in a that few American governors have in the past. And made a hell of a move.
