A Newly emerged video shows conspirators in the Chauncey Bailey Murder discussing details about the killing (and laughing). But none of these suspects have been charged in the case, nor are they under investigation or receiving any new scrutiny. Another suspect (not on the tape) claimed responsibility, saying that he acted alone. But the video clearly indicates a larger conspiracy. An Oakland Police Detective may have also been implicated in the video.
Why are these urban terrorists still walking the streets of Oakland?

On August 2, 2007, journalist Chauncey Bailey was gunned down in Oakland, California. Bailey was investigating Your Black Muslim Bakery, a once prominent Oakland African-American organization. The next day, Bakery leader Yusuf Bey IV was arrested during a raid for a separate kidnapping case. Police placed Bey and two associates involved in the case, his brother Joshua Bey and Tamon Halfin, in a San Leandro police department room, where they were secretly videotaped.
Bey IV has repeatedly told police he knew nothing about Bailey's death. But, on the tape, Bey IV says he hid the gun used in the attack, and brags of playing “hella dumb” when investigators asked him about the killing.
