You're saying a bunch of racist guys who run law enforcement agencies would do something to harm a black man? Golly, if that ain't a stretch. Who ever heard of such a thing?

I'm not saying I don't believe the NYPD would assassinate a black man.

This is not news:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/​COINTELP​RO

COINTELPRO was also not restricted to the left or civil rights groups https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/​COINTELP​RO#Range_of_targets

I had a friend whose father was involved with far right groups during the 60s-70s.   He was personally acquainted with fun guys like George Lincoln Rockwell and William Pierce.   When the old man died my friend asked me to help him clean out the house.  The old man was a pack rat, the house was filled floor to ceiling.  We literally had a dumpster parked under a window and spend several days pitching crap into the dumpster.  Eventually we came upon the old man's FBI file, which he obtained through an FOIA request prior to his death.  The thing was a thick as a book of Trump malapropisms.   A lot of it was redacted, but it was clear that the entire far right movement (bowel) was infested from top to bottom with gov informants and provocateurs.

To be fair, it might have been a 3-day weekend where he was filming "F*ck Farrakhan, That Motherf*cking Assassin" that day.

People think the person has nothing left to lose, and has to clear their conscience before they die.  But what they don't realize, is that some people just enjoy shiat-stirring and not having to be around for the consequences.

Have you ever given an old person the choice between doing the right thing, and making a bunch of idiots run around like crazy?  They laugh and push the 'make em run,' button every single time.

It's not a surprise, but it's not the only way things could have happened.
Look at the JFK assassination - there were a whole Orient Express full of usual suspects who had reasons to do it (though unlike the Agatha Christie version, one of them got there first instead of them all shooting together.)
In Malcolm's case, there were fewer likely perps, and while it's not surprising that the police were pushing them all, one of them could have done it without that. (Nor would it have been surprising if the police had done it and framed Farrakhan or somebody.)

germ78: A similar fate befell Fred Hampton a few years later.

That was a clear police assassination, with a thin veneer of legal justification; no claim that one of the other groups did it.

Neither TFA nor your source tells us anything about who planned the killing and why.

I think that about all we can do is guess "why."  About all we know for sure is that one of the men who carried out the killing was this guy:

Whom witnesses detained at the scene after the crime was committed.

Thanks to J. Edgar, the 60s was open season on Black Panthers, White Panthers, Yippies, Nation of Islam and anybody else he deemed revolutionary.

Fun fact
I used to live in Berkeley across the street from the Malcolm X Elementary school in the mid 90s.

One of my roommates was British and said his brother was in EMF and had a huge single that earned a million pounds, so he put it all in a pile and burned it. As he's telling me this story, I'm picturing that song Unbelievable and that singer burning a pile of cash. I didn't know what to say. He played my guitar once, when I was very first learning, and when I mentioned how good he was (he really was) he said, "Aw, I'm nothing compared to my brother Jimmy."

Very recently I learned that band was KLF, not EMF. When he told me, I did not realize there were two bands known by similar abbreviations.

The KLF is themed after Robert Anton Wilson's Illuminatus Trilogy, taking their name from the band Eris Liberation Front, updated to Kallisti Liberation Front. Or maybe its really Kajagoogoo Liberation Front....

A lot of really weird things happened when I lived in that commune across the street from Malcolm X Elementary school, at the corner of Prince and King. Why wouldn't they?

That was a real long walk just for you to say you knew a guy who knew a guy in some dance band from the late 80's.

Everyone knows why. It will be the same reason when another non-white, over-endorsed, non-skull & bones / mason / illuminati appears capable of steering wealth streams in a different direction.

I mean, wouldn't they be against Malcom for becoming peaceful and wanting unity? The government enforcers don't deal in unity.
