Nipsey Hussle Murder: Ex-LAPD Officer Suggests Police Ordered His Death
Bernard Robins, an ex-officer of the Los Angeles Police Department, suggested that the LAPD might have orchestrated the murder of Nipsey Hussle. The Crenshaw rapper's passing struck the hip-hop community like an earthquake, and though his legacy endures, his loss is still painfully felt by millions. Readers may remember that the police department launched an internal investigation into the 33-year-old's loss. However, Robins recently said during an appearance on the Comedy Hype podcast that he didn't discard the possibility of police ordering his death. When the podcast host brought up the department's other accusations of organized murder, the ex-cop expressed belief that they possibly took Nipsey out.
"I think that there could have been," he stated. "I've never witnessed any law enforcement officers say that there was something going on or even eluded to it. But there's that possibility. We know a lot of the positive things that he was doing in the community. So, there's definitely that possibility that they were that determined to stop what he had going, that they probably could have sent [Eric Holder Jr.] to go and do that.
Ex-Officer Alleges That LAPD Ordered Murder Of Nipsey Hussle
"I think also that they said [Eric] was an informant for law enforcement. That was a part of the issue that he had with Nipsey Hussle allegedly so we don't know. We don't know what was going on behind those closed doors." In addition, the LAPD denied reports from the Los Angeles Times that they were investigating Nipsey. Also, they reportedly targeted his businesses and movement in a secret operation. While this is a lot of speculative material, neither law enforcement nor state prosecutors explained how they came about in the first place. As such, many looked to these organizations with raised eyebrows.
Meanwhile, the rapper's killer Eric Holder Jr. received a 60-year prison sentence this February. However, even with all these accusations and potential malpractices, Nipsey Hussle lives on in ways more important than any of that. For example, his brother Sam stated that Nip's kids now own his Marathon clothing store. As such, he achieved the generational wealth he always wanted for his family. However, to seek true justice for his murder and to avoid further corruption, perhaps these rumors will result in a more thorough investigation into the LAPD's handling of the case.
