Nipsey Hussle Was Being Targeted by LAPD


Nipsey Hussle was secretly being surveilled by LAPD at the time of his murder despite their claims otherwise...

Guardian tech reporter Johana Bhuiyan explains how Hussle was targeted through an LAPD programme called Operation Laser (Los Angeles Strategic Extraction and Restoration), which attempted to use predictive policing technology to identify “chronic offenders” and specific locations linked to gun violence and gangs. The LAPD later discontinued Operation Laser after critics raised concerns about the programme’s effectiveness and argued that it encouraged racial profiling and harassment.
Hussle’s brother Samiel Asghedom tells the Guardian he hadn’t known about Operation Laser, but that he was not surprised to learn that the police had flagged the store as a point of interest.

Don't all Po Po do this to ex-offenders? When they find out the person is clean. Then they move on. Nothing new here.

They were using those tactics to go in and scoop up properties for their gentrification projects. The Crenshaw Mall was up for sale and while several black real estate groups went in with cash in hand, the were all turned down for the Harridge Group who has a direct financial partnership with Warner Music. Doesn't Jay Z have a publishing deal with Warner and he was all up in Nipsey's face during his last year on earth. Trust no one!
