Why Is Farrakhan’s Cop Son Driving a Taxpayer-Funded Police Car and Carrying a Gun When He Hasn’t Worked a Shift in 4+ Years?
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.
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.
