Ou, they have some explaining to do
There is a never-ending list of conspiracy theories about the government’s secret puppet master roll in American culture. As far as hip-hop is concerned, there is an even longer list of conspiracy theories about the lengths the government has gone (and will go) to censor the community.
By far the most popular theory is that Tupac Shakur was too woke for Washington, so he had to go. As a matter of fact, author John Potash wrote an entire book, The FBI War on Tupac Shakur and Black Leaders, about the FBI targeting influential musicians and leaders throughout the decades. Based on 12 years of research, Potash offered evidence that the government had it out for leftist political leaders and musicians, including Kurt Cobain, MLK, Jimi Hendrix, and Tupac.
With the recent reigniting of interest in Tupac’s death, more pieces to the puzzle are being slowly but surely uncovered. This latest tidbit of information will only make claims that the government killed the All Eyez on Me rapper even stronger.
All Too Hopeful
Sadly, it took a television network’s interest in the murder of the late Makaveli for the world to get some answers. Thanks to the producers of the A&E limited series Who Killed Tupac? and civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump — who represented the families of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and Tamir Rice — the cold-case is finally warming up.
About two weeks ago, reports that the docu-series had uncovered Tupac’s murder weapon exploded on the internet. According to uncovered documents, a .40 caliber Glock — supposedly “found” in a citizen’s backyard — was reported to police officers two years after the murder. Compton PD reports show that the gun was logged on May 30, 1998.
Rather than being transported to Los Vegas (where Tupac’s murder took place), the weapon stayed in Compton until 2000, the year the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. took over Compton PD. After the merger, over three thousand confiscated firearms were transferred to the LASD. Tupac’s alleged murder weapon was one of them.
Now, supposedly, initial tests ran on the weapon found it to not be an exact match for Tupac’s murder case. However, lab results came back differently when the Glock was tested again in 2006.
Deputy T. Brennan, who was looking into Biggie’s murder at the time, came across the paperwork for the alleged evidence. After he noticed that the address of the citizen who claimed to have found the gun in their backyard in ’90s matched the address of the house of a Crip member’s girlfriend, red flags went up.
Brennan ordered ballistic testing, proving that the gun was used to kill Tupac.
Of course, it’s mostly hearsay since this is investigation is being done 20 years after the fact. Still, news of a possible murder weapon offered hope that Tupac’s case would be anything other than unsolved. Until…
When Deputy Brennan stumbled upon paperwork for the murder evidence, he didn’t come into contact with the actual gun. It would have been impossible for him to get his hands on a weapon that had already been destroyed.
According to new intel, after the .40 caliber Glock’s initial testing came back as less than an exact match, federal officers destroyed to weapon. Reportedly, that same weapon was found to have been used in another murder, leading the feds to rule it out as Tupac’s murder weapon.
So, now what? Keep watching Who Killed Tupac? on A&E for more.
