Shuaib Raheem was initially granted parole three years ago in a decision that was later rescinded after it sparked a raft of outrage from the cop’s widow and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.
Shuaib Abdur Raheem converted to Islam in the early 1970s. Cop Killer Shu'aib Adbur Raheem is the former imam of the prison Mosque Sankore at Greenhaven correctional that opened in 1968 and has taught radical Islam since. Shuaib Raheem Black Liberation Army (BLA) member ?

According to a Justice Department report on BLA activity, the Black Liberation Army (cop killers) is suspected of involvement in over 60 incidents of violence between 1970 and 1976. The Fraternal Order of Police blames the BLA for the murders of 13 police officers. On May 21, 1971, as many as five BLA members participated in the shootings of two New York City police officers, Joseph Piagentini and Waverly Jones.

BLA COP KILLER ARRESTED IN PANAMA CITY FL; 8 arrested in 1971 SF cop killing tied to Black Panthers; By MARCUS WOHLSEN, Associated Press Writer Wednesday, January 24, 2007. The hunt for the killers of Sgt. John V. Young seemed plagued by stops and starts before authorities arrested eight men with ties to a militant black power group nearly 36 years after the slaying. On Aug. 29, 1971, two members of the group, armed with guns and dynamite, stormed a police station in San Francisco’s Ingleside neighborhood and fired a shotgun through a hole in the lobby’s bulletproof glass, killing Young, 51, and wounding a civilian clerk carried out by the Black Liberation Army (BLA) the violent offshoot of the Black Panther party..
Authorities said the killing was one in a series of attacks by BLA members on law enforcement officials on both coasts. Carried out between 1968 and 1973, the campaign also included the bombing of a police funeral at a San Francisco church and the slayings of the two New York police officers, as well as three armed bank robberies that helped fund their operations, police said. Seven suspected former BLA members were charged with murder and conspiracy. They are Bell, 59, and Anthony Bottom, 55, both currently incarcerated in New York state; Ray Michael Boudreaux, 64, of Altadena; Richard Brown, 65, of San Francisco; Henry Watson Jones, 71, of Altadena; Francisco Torres, 58, of Queens, New York; and Harold Taylor, 58, of Panama City, Fla.
In another high-profile BLA incident, Joanne Chesimard (aka Assata Shakur), James Coston (aka Zayd Shakur) and Clark Edward Squire (aka Sundiata Acoli) were said to have opened fire on state troopers in New Jersey after being pulled over for a broken taillight. Coston (Shakur) and state trooper Werner Foerster were both killed during the exchange. The BLA was active in the US until at least 1981 when a New York Brinks truck robbery, conducted with support from Weather Underground members Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert, left a guard and two police officers dead. Boudin and Gilbert, along with several BLA members, were subsequently arrested.
The Black Liberation Army (BLA) was a violent, radical group that attempted to fight for independence from the United States government in the late 1960's and early 1970's. The BLA was responsible for the murders of more than 10 police officers around the country. They were also responsible for violent attacks around the country that left many police officers wounded in New York City by the BLA.
Cop Killer Shu'aib Adbur Raheem is the former imam of the prison Mosque Sankore. Founded in 1968, Masjid Sankore became the first recognized Islamic institution in a New York prison. Masjid Sankore instituted classes in qur’anic instruction and Arabic.
Prisoners throughout the state referred to Green Haven’s prison Mosque Sankore masjid as the “Medina” of the system, (Radical Islam allowed to fester inside the prison walls under cop killer Shu'aib Adbur Raheem).
Raheem was 23 when he and three other young men barged into John & Al's Sporting Goods on Broadway in Williamsburg, see photo above, to steal rifles and ammo from the shelves for what he called a war on injustices against Muslims. (Shuaib Abdur Raheem converted to Islam in the early 1970s). After Officer Stephen Gilroy was shot in the head, his body stayed inside along with the wounded cops for two days before the men gave themselves up.
Lynch said cop killers should spend the rest of their lives behind bars. "We firmly believe that this demands the incarceration for life for all cop killers regardless of when they were convicted," he said, more from this source...............

Raheem, 60, has served 35 years in prison after being convicted of carrying out a spectacular siege at a Brooklyn sporting goods store that left NYPD Officer Stephen Gilroy dead on a cold, rainy night in Williamsburg.
Shu'aib Raheem decided to take the life of one brave cop, who in Raheem's own words, he saw bobbing his head from time to time around the corner of an el pillar. In his testimony, he coldly stated that he sat and simply waited for the cop to stick his head out.
"After carefully sighting in his target, Raheem simply pulled the trigger of the Remington rifle, instantly killing my cousin with one perfectly aimed, premeditated shot to the head," said MIKE KOSZALZA, cousin of Officer Stephen Gilroy.
