    Congresswoman: Who killed Tupac?

    WASHINGTON – Rep. Cynthia McKinney, D-GA, has introduced a bill to provide for the "expeditious disclosure of records relevant to the life and death of Tupac Amaru Shakur," the rapper murdered in Las Vegas in 1996.

    The bill has been referred to the Committee on Government Reform and Committee on Rules.

    Afenia Shakur, Tupac's mother and a former member of the Black Panthers, is reportedly supporting the effort.

    McKinney and Tupac devotees say they believe Shakur was under surveillance by the FBI and other governmental agencies at the time of the murder.

    Shakur was known as a pioneer in "gangsta rap." His lyrics exuded with references to killing police officers and sexual violence. He was convicted in 1995 of a sexual assault on a fan and served eight months in prison.

    He was hit by a hail of bullets while riding in a car in Las Vegas driven by Death Row Records Chief Executive Marion "Suge" Knight. He died after six days in a medical coma at the age of 25.

    His aunt, convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur, who changed her name from Joanne Chesimard, was also a member of the Black Panters and the Black Liberation Army. She escaped from prison in 1979 and fled to Cuba, where she has been defended by Fidel Castro as an innocent victim of persecution. She was placed a U.S. government terrorist watch list May 2.

    A New Jersey jury convicted the Black Liberation Army member of shooting a state trooper, Werner Foerster, as he lay on the ground in 1973.

    Earlier this year, New Jersey authorities raised the reward for her capture from $150,000 to $1 million

      Are you suggesting that a member of Congress should have more important things to worry about than the murder of a rapper? [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif[/img]
