Father & Son

The Chicago Sun Times has an expose on Calypso Louie Farrakhan’s son Mustapha. The latter ‘works’ as a part time cop for the police dept of Harvey, IL which is about 12 miles outside of Chicago. Mustapha hasn’t worked a shift in 4 years, and his ‘police duties’ consist entirely of using his government-paid patrol car to stop traffic and escort his dad’s detail:

The unusual arrangement that allows him to carry a concealed gun into places where regular citizens can’t, and to drive a police car, despite apparently failing to do regular police work for the suburb that employs him, may be especially useful to the man who leads the Nation of Islam’s “Fruit of Islam” security detail.

Neither Farrakhan, his close pal, Harvey Mayor Eric J. Kellogg, nor the Nation of Islam responded to requests last week to discuss it.

Harvey Police Chief Denard Eaves also declined to answer detailed questions about Farrakhan’s hire, his use of the city-owned squad car, or his security work for the country’s leading radical black Muslim.

Harvey is 79.57% black, so you can guess the sort of widespread nepotism, corruption, and dysfunctionality regularly on display here:

Intrigue or controversy inside Harvey’s small police department is nothing new.

During the decade since Mayor Kellogg was elected, two officers have been convicted of felonies.

One, Kellogg’s close ally Archie Stallworth, was caught in a federal sting transporting what he thought was 30 kilos of cocaine.

The other, Detective Hollis Dorrough, illegally returned a gun taken in evidence to a suspect’s dad — on Kellogg’s orders, he claimed.

Civil lawsuits alleging police brutality and worse have also stacked up.

Just two months ago, the city agreed to pay $1.4 million to settle a lawsuit that alleged Kellogg and Dorrough conspired to frame a man after their stash of cocaine was stolen.

And in January, a federal jury awarded $600,000 to former Harvey cop Alex Gbur, who it found was sent out to face gunfire without his K-9 partner in an unsafe squad car as revenge for his support of one of Kellogg’s political opponents.

Faced with these and other embarrassing headlines, all of which he has denied, the mayor has long used his friendships with star athletes and other celebrities, including the Farrakhan family, to bolster his political appeal.

His relationship with Mustapha Farrakhan is especially close, sources say.

Why is it that cities run by blacks begin to resemble the worst elements of dysfunctional African countries?

Oh, right, I forgot: racism.
