Today, February 21th, 2015, marks the 50th year of the murder of Malcolm X (El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz), and disgracefully his chief assassin, now known to the world as William Bradley (aka Al-Mustafa Shabazz), walks the streets of Newark, N.J. a free man. Many people are looking for answers which explain this appalling affront to justice and the legacy of Malcolm X. There is a simple answer; a collective failure on all our part to care enough about justice for Malcolm, and failing to demand the government track down and prosecute his killers decades ago. But that is now water under the bridge, it is not too late.
Ultimately responsibility rests squarely with the government, which even at this late hour refuses to release tens of thousands of documents related to the assassination of Malcolm X. Many people are understandably incensed at the very notion of William Bradley (Al-Mustafa Shabazz) strolling around town in his Mercedes-Benz and living in his beautiful gated home, but there is something we CAN do.
It must be remembered that there is no statute of limitations on murder! Right now our communities must channel their fury into the mobilization of petition drives and direct action to pressure the New York County District Attorney, Cyrus Vance, Jr. to reopen the investigation and ultimately arrest Bradley. This is what must be done, scholars and historians will sort the details out later.
Cyrus Vance Jr. (212) 335 – 9000
