The last time a reporter investigated this bakery, he was killed by those he was investigating.
There is a reincarnation of the bakery doing the exact same thing a decade later in roughly the same location.
During the pandemic, it has actually been easier to grab a good number of tweens and young teens. Some of them are close to delivery dates and the owners of the bakery who impregnated them will start collecting assistance checks.
The ones who are not pregnant are hired out.
Your Black Muslim Bakery
Chauncey Wendell Bailey Jr. was an American journalist noted for his work primarily on issues of the African American community. He served as editor-in-chief of The Oakland Post in Oakland, California from June 2007 until his murder.
Chauncey Bailey murder: ‘Justice has finally been done’
OAKLAND — Nearly four years after Oakland Post editor Chauncey Bailey was gunned down on his morning walk to work, a jury convicted the former leader of Your Black Muslim Bakery of murder for ordering the journalist’s assassination.
Yusuf Bey IV — who a prosecutor said terrorized Oakland — will likely spend the rest of his life in prison for sending two followers to kill Bailey after learning the journalist was writing a story about financial problems and inner strife at the bakery.
Bey IV, 25, also was convicted of ordering the deaths of two other men, Odell Roberson and Michael Wills, in summer 2007.
The three, first-degree murder charges carry a mandatory sentence of life in prison without possibility of parole.
“I’m very teary. This has been a long journey but justice has finally been done, it’s over,” said Bailey’s cousin, Wendy Ashley-Johnson. “Journalists have a job to do and they should not be squashed in what they do, and that’s what they tried to do to Chauncey. That’s why the family decided to talk to the press, because that’s what Chauncey would have wanted us to do.”
Bey IV’s co-defendant, Antoine Mackey, was convicted of helping confessed killer Devaughndre Broussard hunt down Bailey and of killing Wills. The jury deadlocked on a third charge against Mackey — whether the 25-year-old former bakery member helped Broussard kill Roberson.
Mackey also faces life in prison without the possibility of parole on the two, first-degree murder counts; sentencing for the men is set for July 8. Defense lawyers are promising appeals.
Bey IV, in a dark pinstriped suit and trademark bow tie of his Black Muslim faith, stared straight ahead as the verdict was read. Mackey stared at the high, tiled ceiling of Judge Thomas Reardon’s courtroom.
Bailey was shot Aug. 2, 2007, on 14th and Alice streets in Oakland. “We gotta take him out before he write that story,” Broussard said Bey IV told him and Mackey.
Broussard, 23, accepted a plea deal in exchange for his testimony and is to be sentenced to 25 years in prison.
Bailey, 57, was the first journalist killed over a domestic story in the U.S. since 1976 when Don Bolles of The Arizona Republic died in a car bombing.
Broussard also confessed to killing Roberson, 31, on July 8, 2007. Bey IV ordered that killing in retaliation because Roberson was related to a man convicted of killing Bey IV’s older brother, Broussard said. Wills, a 36-year-old sous chef, was shot by Mackey on July 12, 2007, as Wills walked to a corner store. After Wills’ death, Mackey and Bey IV bragged they killed a “white devil,” Broussard said. – Source
