When Sting comes to Upper Darby, Pa., on Nov. 14 for a concert, the cops here will be sending him a message, but not in a bottle. The former lead singer of the Police is promoting his new album, "Brand New Day." He also supports death-row cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal. Supporters of Abu-Jamal say he didn't get a fair trial. The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 27, which represents at least 900 retired and active Delaware County police officers, plan to call on officers from around southeastern Pennsylvania to protest the singer's concert, said lodge president Joseph Fitzgerald. Police hadn't firmed up plans on what form their protest will take.
Stephen M. Silverman is on vacation. He will return to The Daily in two weeks.
