The notorious father-in-law of murdered rapper Tupac Shakur was released from jail after serving nearly 40 years in the 1981 Brinks armored truck theft that ended with two Nyack cops and a dead guard.
Per lohud.com, Mutulu Shakur, a 72-year-old member of the Black Liberation Army who is terminally ill, was released by the US Parole Commission while serving a 60-year sentence.
“The decision to grant parole is based on federal law guidelines for ‘old law’ prisoners, finding that Dr. Shakur poses no threat to the community,” reads a statement on mutulushakur.com, a website maintained by his supporters.
The statement claimed parole officials also took into account Shakur’s “exemplary conduct in prison, his medical condition and how much time he has served.”
“We now find your medical condition renders you so infirm of mind and body that you are no longer physically capable of committing any federal, state or local crime,” the parole commissioner wrote of Shakur at the time.
Speaking of Tupac, FX is getting to debut in the spring of 2023 a new docuseries titled ‘Dear Mama.’
According to Hollywood Unlocked, the series will feature never before seen footage.
