Part TAP1 Lower Level

Case Background:

During this past Spring’s “Bogus Weapons Case” against Bro. Shaka Shakur; “Original” Black
Panther Party Veteran and longtime community activist Sadiki “Shep” Ojore Olugbala was identified
as a leader, politically targeted and unjustly arrested inside of the Bronx Criminal Court house for his
experienced supervision in the orderly departure of both Bro. Shaka’s attorney and his many
supporters from the courtroom. This arrest was made at the same time that several other court
officers were engaged in a heated discussion with Bro. Shaka’s noted activist attorney Michael “Tarif”
Warren in regards his objection of the court officers overall disrespect towards those people who had
come to the trial in support of Bro. Shaka. Unfortunately, despite yet another court victory by the
people The State has decided to still make an example of Bro. Shep in order to have him imprisoned
and; To continue its current city-wide court campaign to “intimidate & curtail” the growing peoples
movement to “Pack The Court House” in support of both organizers and/or the victims of Police
Terror by the NYPD. Finally, in addition to the criminal charges in Bro. Shep’s case, is the very real
question of whether or not the people can actually receive a fair and unbiased trial when both the
arresting NYS Court Officers and the presiding NYS Court Judges personally know, socialize and
work with each other on a regular basis. This legal contradiction, as well as the aforementioned City-
Wide Court Campaign to violate our 1st Amendment Constitutional Rights both inside & outside the
courthouse, will be addressed during this trial as well.
