Free H Rap Brown

By Christopher R Rice

In March, 2000, two police officers, Aldranon English and Ricky Kinchen went to Al-Amin's store to arrest him for theft. Al-Amin opened fire on the officers with an assault rifle. Both officers were wounded. Evidence was produced in court that while Kitchen lay bleeding Al-Amin produced a 9mm handgun and shot him three times. Two years later Al-Amin was found guilty of murder and sentenced to life imprisonment.

As a student at Morehouse college in Atlanta during this time, I protested for Imam Al-Amin. As a resident of the area I was privy to the fact that the Imam and his mosque had done what the police wouldn't or couldn't do, clean the drug dealers out of the parks and areas of the west end. This caused the BS charges to be trumped up and the assassination attempt. I don't care what the police said because they were crooked cops on the payroll of the dealers in the area. I saw it with my own eyes. Please do your own research.

Not sure if the accused killed a police officer, if so I'm more than sure it was self defense.

H. Rap Brown was born in Baton Rouge on 4th October 1943. While attending Southern University (1960 to 1964) he joined the civil rights organization, Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). He became Alabama project director in 1966 and national director of SNCC after Stokely Carmichael left in May, 1967.

By 1968 Brown had completely abandoned his pacifist beliefs and joined the Black Panther Party. He quickly developed a reputation for extremist views reflected in his book, Die Nigger Die! (1969). Associated with the rallying call, "Burn, Baby, Burn", Brown was arrested and charged with inciting people to riot and committing arson. He was also accused of importation of a weapon into Louisiana.

Imprisoned several times between 1967 and 1970, Brown was eventually shot and captured by New York City police during an armed robbery. Sentenced to a term of from five to fifteen years in Attica Prison, Brown was paroled in 1976. Converting to Islam, he changed his name to Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin.

After his release in 1976 Al-Amin became a grocery store owner in Atlanta. He also became leader of the National Ummah, one of America's largest black Muslim groups.

Al-Amin did have proof of insurance for the vehicle he was driving in 1999 but was not allowed to get it and he was really deputised as a Sheriff in his county. The badge was real! He was also arrested twice in 1994 by the FBI after the first World Trade Center bombings. He was never charged with anything and held against his will twice. Lastly, his arrest and imprisonment in 1971 for shooting two Police officers in a mid-town lounge were later discovered to be in response to illegal activities many police officers were having with drug dealers in that specific lounge.

FBI reports have proven this to be true. This is why he was freed after only a few years in prison. Jamil Al-Amin might be in prison today but this does not mean he is guilty. It means that there are many women and men in our prison system who are innocent but couldn't afford to pay for a fair trial. ...

Jamil Al-Amin has been repeatedly harassed, arrested, and thrown into prison for the last 35 years. In the 1970s, when he converted to Islam, and started a mosque in a large Muslim community in Atlanta's West End neighborhood the case was not only accounted by him but with racism.

On March 9, 2002, nearly two years after the shooting, al-Amin was convicted of 13 criminal charges, including Kinchen's murder. Four days later, he was sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole.[8] He was sent to Georgia State Prison, the state's maximum-security facility near Reidsville, Georgia.

At his trial, prosecutors pointed out that al-Amin had never provided an alibi for his whereabouts at the time of the shootout, nor any explanation for fleeing the state afterwards. He also did not explain the bullet holes in his car, nor why the weapons used in the shootout were found near him during his arrest. In May 2004, the Supreme Court of Georgia unanimously ruled to uphold al-Amin's conviction
In August 2007, al-Amin was transferred to federal custody, as Georgia officials decided he was too high-profile for the Georgia prison system to handle. He was moved to a federal transfer facility in Oklahoma pending assignment to a federal penitentiary. On October 21, 2007, al-Amin was transferred to the ADX Florence supermax prison in Florence, Colorado.[10] On July 18, 2014, having been diagnosed with multiple myeloma, al-Amin was transferred to Butner Federal Medical Center in North Carolina.[11] As of 2016, he is incarcerated at the United States Penitentiary, Tucson.
