We Honor Daniel Faulkner's Memory
Daniel Faulkner loved being a police officer and planned on a lifelong career in law enforcement. He was working toward his Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice Administration, with a long-term goal of attending law school so he could one day join the District Attorney's Office as a prosecutor.
Family was important to Daniel, the youngest of seven children in a close-knit Irish-Catholic family from Philadelphia. Daniel and his wife Maureen were married in the fall of 1979, and owned a home in south Philadelphia near their friends and families. At just 25-years of age, the future seemed promising to Daniel and his young wife.
On December 9, 1981, those hopes and dreams were destroyed when Officer Daniel Faulkner was murdered in cold blood on a Philadelphia street corner during a routine traffic stop. His killer? Poster child for wrongful imprisonment—Mumia Abu-Jamal.
