Guilty Plea In Black Muslim Bakery Murder

From those ever discreet defenders of the faith at the Associated Press:

Man pleads guilty to killing Oakland editor

May 8, 2009

A former bakery handyman pleaded guilty Thursday to killing two men, including an Oakland journalist who was writing about the bakery’s finances.

Devaughndre Broussard, 21, entered his plea to two counts of voluntary manslaughter as part of a deal with prosecutors.

Broussard admitted to fatally shooting Oakland Post editor Chauncey Bailey in August 2007 and another man, Odell Roberson Jr., a month earlier…

Under the terms of the deal, Broussard will be sentenced to 25 years in prison in exchange for his testimony against two other bakery figures. He would have faced up to 32 years in prison if convicted at trial…

Your Black Muslim Bakery was an institution in Oakland’s black community since it was founded more than 40 years ago, running a bakery, a school and providing security.

But bakery members, including Bey, have been accused of involvement in several crimes, including a vandalism rampage of liquor stores in 2005 and the kidnapping and torture of two women in 2007.

Bailey, 57, was the editor of the Oakland Post, a newspaper focusing on African American issues.

He was working on an article about the bakery’s financial troubles and internal fighting when he was gunned down on a downtown street on his way to work…

Notice how this AP story soft-pedals the Black Muslim factor in this story:

Your Black Muslim Bakery was an institution in Oakland’s black community since it was founded more than 40 years ago, running a bakery, a school and providing security.

Please read the related articles linked below to get an inkling of just how preposterous is this description from the AP.

    The former bakery handyman admits fatally shooting journalist who was writing about the bakery’s finances. He also pleads guilty to killing another man a month earlier.

    …”Broussard already has testified before a grand jury against Yusuf Bey IV, the leader of the now-defunct Your Black Muslim Bakery, who allegedly ordered the killings of Bailey and Roberson; and bakery associate Antoine Mackey, who allegedly drove the getaway van in the Bailey shooting and was the shooter in a third slaying.

    Both are scheduled to enter their pleas to murder charges Wednesday.

    Broussard testified that he carried out the slaying because he had been promised financial rewards.”

    I know we were following this a while back but I don’t know if anyone has been following since.

    Let’s see…..rape, kidnapping, murder, vandalism, and running a “special” school on the side…..yep, sounds like the religion of peace again – with a side of black nationalism I suspect, given the name.

    Wonder if the AP would have described criminals and their businesses as a local pillar of the community if the name of the stores were “white Christian” or some other race/religion blend. I suspect not.

    Wufta (minnesotan for “like WOW”) .. did ya catch the sign for the bakery in the photo?

    “Taste of … the Hereafter”

    Now there’s some eerie doodoo.

    • MinnesotaRush says:

      BTW .. wufta is pronounced “wolf-ta” in case your interested or didn’t see the movie, “Fargo”. :-)

    • Liberals Make Great Speedbumps says:

      Ha, didn’t notice that MR, that’s funny.

    • canary says:

      Steve, yes, media soft peddling for their own skins, which isn’t going to help anyone in the long run.
      Minnesota:”Hereafter” is a Muslim and Islam term for the next life. I’m guessing they mean paradise.
      They really don’t think they are wrong terrorizing Liquor stores: evil spirits, the woman probably had their arms showing, and they are following their religion of severe punishment til the evil person repents.

    • Liberals Demise says:

      I saw it and wondered if there was a bread aroma in hell……aye?

    Absolutely, read the articles Steve posted w/ this & the vidio. 100 wifes, 40ish children, by a rich muslim leader, welfare fraud, millions, relatives in the sytem. The qur’an accepts multiply wifes, as long as the 1st agrees, and with this money ? This is so much like Obama’s Dreams in Chicago, Malcome X, Marxism. Obama is not safe, being on the wrong version of Quran.

    After 9/11 the liberals and all their “we had it coming” and peace, and I just kept thinking they don’t get it, all their peace b.s. isn’t going to save us from what Bin Laden called a holy war. I felt back then, they can just walk out of their homes one day. Holidays make me nervous. My advice to Americans is fight for our right to bear arms. It’s just not gangs, bad muslims that have the guns. And the vidio is evident they won’t necessarily being wearing robes and viels.

    Muslims Clash Over Oakland Liquor Stores
    By JUSTIN M. NORTON, Associated Press Writer Mon Jan 9, 4:08 PM ET

    Dressed in bow ties and dark suits, nearly a dozen men carrying metal pipes entered a corner store,…
    They just wanted to leave a message: Stop selling alcohol to fellow Muslims.

    But the recent attack at San Pablo Liquor …. at another West Oakland store later that..evening, along with an arson fire there and the kidnapping of the owner a few days later —have injected religion into the debate.

    The two episodes highlighted tensions — and different interpretations of the Quran — between black Muslims

    One of the men arrested on charges that included hate crimes and vandalism was 19-year-old Yusuf Bey IV. His father, Yusuf Bey, a black Muslim leader who died in 2003, founded Your Black Muslim Bakery, which sells Malcolm X books along with baked goods.
