Witness says NYC, feds were involved in Malcolm X’s assassination

– An eyewitness, Mustafa Hassan, who had been a close aide to Malcolm X, spoke out for the first time about the assassination.

– Hassan observed a man with a gun seconds after Malcolm X was shot, and he identified the man as Talmadge X. Hayer (also known as Thomas Hagan).

– According to Hassan, Malcolm X's followers beat Hayer while police officers arrived at the scene and questioned if he was with law enforcement.

– The eyewitness believes that this incident proves government operatives were involved in Malcolm X's killing.

– Celebrity attorney Ben Crump is leading a case on behalf of Malcolm X's family against the federal, state, and New York City governments, seeking $100 million in damages.

– Co-counsel Ray Hamlin suggests that members of law enforcement were likely aware of the plot to physically target and potentially assassinate Malcolm X.

– Malcolm X's family hopes that the new eyewitness account strengthens their case and brings justice.

– The family is suing New York City as part of their legal action, but the city's law department has not commented on the matter.
