Earlier today, I mentioned the theory of Little Concrete Piranhas that Muslims from Your Black Muslim Bakery murdered classy investigative journalist Chauncey Bailey.
Well, deputize those bloggers at LCP, because their hunch, posted yesterday right after news of Bailey’s murder, has proven correct. Muslims Murdered Bailey in cold blood. And it appears to have been pre-meditated, too.
Reader Kevin sends this report from San Francisco’s KTVU–oh, and by the way, note that these holier-than-thou, “pious” Muslims flock like moths to a flame to strip clubs:
Muslims Executed Chauncey Bailey . . .
OAKLAND — Police said Friday “firearm evidence” confiscated during a series of early morning raids, including one at a bakery linked to a black Muslim group, was connected to the slaying of Oakland journalist Chauncey Bailey.
Oakland Deputy Police Chief Howard Jordan said that while the department had been involved in a long-term investigation of the group tied to Your Black Muslim Bakery, new firearm evidence turned up by a series of raids Friday at the bakery and several residences of individuals linked to the black Muslim group now firmly links the shooting death of Bailey as well as another fatal shooting to the group. . . .
The bakery had been the subject of a story being written, according to colleagues, by veteran journalist Bailey who was ambushed and slain in downtown Oakland Thursday.
Nineteen people arrested in the raids at Your Black Muslim Bakery and three other locations are currently being interviewed by Oakland Police. Two additional suspect are still at large.
Bailey had been working on a story about Your Black Muslim Bakery, according to Joseph Debro, an Oakland businessman who writes a column for the Post. Debro said Bailey had recently asked him for information about bankruptcy proceedings for a story about the bakery.
“To him it was just another story,” Debro said. “He wasn’t apprehensive or anxious about it at all. He said he was working on a bunch of stories and this was one.” . . .
Bailey was a longtime reporter for the Oakland Tribune before becoming editor of the Post, a weekly newspaper geared toward the Bay Area black community, earlier this year.
He had written stories for the Tribune about the bakery and its founder when Bey was facing rape charges in Alameda County. Most of those charges were later dropped, although one was still pending when Bey died in 2003.
Bey’s son, Yusuf Bey IV, took control of the original bakery and several franchises. In 2005, he was accused by police of being the ringleader in a group of black Muslims who smashed liquor bottles in Oakland corner stores and berated the Muslim owners for selling alcohol to the black community, because alcohol is forbidden by Islam.
In 2006, Bey was charged with assault with a deadly weapon for allegedly trying to use his BMW to run down several bouncers after being thrown out of a San Francisco strip club. He also faced felony charges in Solano County for allegedly fraudulently using false identification to buy a car.
Your Black Muslim bakery has been plagued with financial problems for several years, culminating in a bankruptcy filing last October.
In a declaration filed with the bankruptcy court on June 29, Yusuf Bey IV conceded he was “inexperienced in the business world,” and had “received advice and consultation from those who had proven to me they did not have my best interests at heart.”
The moral of this story: Watch your back if you dare to expose Islam and its extremism.
Believe me, I’m watching mine.
As I wrote earlier today, I liked Chauncey Bailey, whose work I knew from his days in Detroit. He was a classy, brilliant journalist, reporter, and writer.
Chauncey Bailey, Rest in Peace.
