Why Is Farrakhan’s Cop Son Driving a Taxpayer-Funded Police Car and Carrying a Gun When He Hasn’t...

The Minister Louis Farrakhan’s son, Mustapha, is making headlines in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs after some intriguing claims were made in a Chicago Sun-Times article on Sunday. A registered police officer with the Harvey Police Department in Harvey, Illinois, Mustapa allegedly hasn’t worked a shift in more than four years. However, that’s not what’s raising eyebrows.

According to state records, a lack of employment activity with the police force hasn’t stopped the man, known as “Supreme Captain” of the Nation of Islam (a title that means he could one day take his father’s place) from purportedly exercising police duties. Mustapha, 52, apparently still has a badge, drives an unmarked police car and he’s registered with the state as a gun-carrying cop in the city of Harvey.

Louis Farrakhan makes a point as he speaks to a group of students from Macon County high schools and Tuskegee University at the Tuskegee campus in Tuskegee, Ala. on Friday March 22, 2013. Credit: AP

Certainly, these elements are odd for an officer who reportedly hasn’t worked in years, but the Sun-Times’ account provides additional details that may cause some head-scratching, specifically considering the alleged “off-duty” work that Mustapha does for the Nation of Islam:

Officer Farrakhan does, though, appear to do “police work” off-duty, more than a dozen miles outside Harvey city limits, in Chicago, where he uses his Harvey squad car’s lights to stop traffic and escorts his father’s unofficial motorcade, a Chicago Sun-Times investigation has found.

The unusual arrangement that allows him to carry a concealed gun into places where regular citizens can’t, and to drive a police car, despite apparently failing to do regular police

First of all, Billy-boy, don’t refer to that POS as a ‘Minister’. He’s anything but.

1. Because he is a democrat and the preferred religion of the powers that be.

2. Nobody with any media clout has made a stink about it.

3. democrat corruption.

I wonder if, besides the perks, draws a salary and gets retirement? That would not be uncommon for a person with his antecedents.

Who pays for his car? Does he get a paycheck? Does he pay taxes on the 'favors'?

Where's the national press on this? Guess dem handlers aren't calling CBS's "60 Minutes" with their helpful suggestions on this story. Where's the IRS on this one?

If some 'right winger' son was doing this for a father who was a Tea Party Leader - the effing New York Times would be on it like white on rice. So would the Washington Post...

Brings up a side issue concerning who qualifies as an LEO?

If the Feds abridge the 2A, the Red States can repond by making every citizen with a clean criminal record and the desire, a reserve LEO. Reserve LEOs would then be allowed to possess REAL assault rifles, but would not be authorized to act in an active LEO status.

Has compassion completely left us!?!

He’s an undocumented officer who needs to be brought out of the shadows with comprehensive law enforcement reform.

Because it’s corrupt Chicago and the powers that be decide what laws do or don’t apply to particular individuals as it benefits those in power.

Would be cool if he was the officer sent to my door for confiscation.

I wonder where King Louie stands when asked to abdicate his power to some imam when it gets down to brass tacks and the caliphate says so?

He should be arrested for this. People shouldn't have to stop their cars for Farrakhan. This is absurd. Who do these loons think they are?

My getting through for groceries is more important than Farrakhan for gosh sakes.

The small urban enclave of Harvey is where the famous mall chase scene was filmed in the 1979 John Landis move The Blues Brothers. The Dixie Square Mall had been closed a few months earlier and incredibly remained shuttered but standing for 32 years! It finally came down in 2012 only after the state received a federal grant. Beyond pathetic.

Why does Farrakhan get a police escort? Oh, that’s right he is black and due that perk, just like his son is black and therefore deserves something for nothing.

He's Chicago royalty, and you are a prole who doesn't even belong to the Outer Party. This is going to be forever. Get used to it.

The idea of a constitutional republic is dead. We are the subjects of a dictatorship.

It would be interesting to know, in a depressing sort of way, how many other patronage jobs there are in the Chicago PD or other municipal agencies.

I mean, I’m sure every city and town of every size has a few of those. But I’m betting Chi-town has considerably more than is the average. Lots of places to tuck away an Alderman’s cousin or state senator’s financial backer in a sprawling urban government like the one Chicago has...

Looks like Harvey IL is one of those places that has great law enforcement ...

“With a crime rate of 86 per one thousand residents, Harvey has one of the highest crime rates in America compared to all communities of all sizes - from the smallest towns to the very largest cities. One’s chance of becoming a victim of either violent or property crime here is one in 12. Within Illinois, more than 99% of the communities have a lower crime rate than Harvey.In fact, after researching dangerous places to live, NeighborhoodScout found Harvey to be one of the top 100 most dangerous cities in the U.S.A."
