2Pac’s step father, Shakur mutula, to regain freedom, after 35 years in prison

After more than 35 years in prison, Shakur Mutula, Tupac Shakur’s stepfather, will be released on parole on Dec. 16, 2022, in fact, he will spend what are expected to be his final days among family and friends. In October, the U.S. Parole Commission granted a request to release Shakur, an activist and holistic healthcare advocate, now 72. According to the court documents obtained by NBC News. The decision to grant parole was made public on Thursday. Shakur has several health issues, most notably at stage 3 multiple myeloma. Certainly blood cancer can affect the bones and kidneys he is being held at a federal medical center in Lexington. A prison in Kentucky for incarcerated people who have to require care “There are a lot of tears of joy.” Jomo Muhammad, an organizer with the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, who’s been working to free Shakur, said of the decision.”  

 Shakur Tupac has been incarcerated for decades stemming from a 1988 conviction for leading a group of revolutionaries in a string of armed robberies in New York and Connecticut, including one that left three people dead. Furthermore his supporters consider him as  “political prisoner,” arguing that authorities wanted to make an example of him because of his activism.

Then Shakur Tupac has been denied release several times over the years, with authorities insisting that his crimes were too serious and his health had not deteriorated enough to warrant a release. However, in the October decision, Commission officials told Shakur, “We now find your medical condition renders you so infirm of mind and body so that you are no longer physically capable of committing any Federal, State, or local crime. Organizers have advocated for Shakur’s compassionate release, urging authorities to allow him to spend his final days with his family.
