Chauncey Bailey Murder in Oakland, CA May Be Linked With Islam

Former Detroit News writer, Chauncey Bailey, was shot dead execution-style Thursday morning while on his way to work in Oakland, CA, killed by a lone gunman dressed in black and wearing a black mask. (“Former News staffer shot dead in California").

This morning, police detained more than a dozen people in possible connection with the killing, picked up during raids on four locations, including “the often-troubled Your Black Muslim Bakery in Oakland.” (“Oakland, Fremont descend on Your Black Muslim Bakery”).

The son of the bakery's founder, the late Yusuf Bey, along with “some other young men were identified as the young toughs who bashed liquor bottles in Oakland corner stores and berated the owners for selling alcohol in the community.”

The AP also reports that “Chauncey Bailey was reportedly researching an investigative piece into Your Black Muslim Bakery before he was shot and killed just yesterday morning.”

I remember Bailey from when he was a writer for the News here in Detroit.

Really, when was the last time you heard of a garden-variety street hood wearing all black and a black mask?

It's a sad thing for America when a journalist risks losing his life for doing his job. Another tactic of the Jihadists, I guess, to scare the press into silence about their activities.
