The Parole of Racist, Serial Cop-Killer Herman Bell, and the Nation of Islam’s Zebra Murders


First, Bell and his comrade Anthony Bottom (aka Jalil Muntaqim) ambushed and slaughtered Officers Joseph Piagentini and Waverly Jones on May 21, 1971

Then, on August 29th, 1971, Bell and six accomplices murdered SFPD Sergeant John Victor Young. They blew Sgt. Young's face off.

The release of racist, serial cop-killer Herman Bell is why I check the California Inmate Locator periodically for info on the 1970's NOI/Zebra killers.

The two still in detention are Larry Craig Green, age 66, and Jessie Lee Cooks, age 73. Green and Cooks both have been turned down for parole 13 times each.

J.C. Simon died in prison in 2015, Manuel Moore in November last year. Simon's death was mentioned in several news reports, Moore's not at all.

Green was denied in 2009 for 10 years. His next hearing is in September 2019. Cooks was last denied in 2013 for 7 years. His next hearing is in March 2020.

The above information is from the California Dept of Corrections Inmate Locator as of today, March 17.

Two “Zebra” killers from the Sacramento mosque have already been paroled. One was Larry Pratt; I could not determine the other killer’s name. The Sacramento mosque killers were Russell Lang, 19, Emery L. Hanson, 25, and Larry Pratt, 19. Dale McKinney, 23 or 24 at the time of the crimes, was convicted of conspiracy to commit murder, but not of actually carrying out the murders.

The reader-researcher who grew up with racist Zebra/Nation of Islam murderer Larry Pratt, sent along the following picture, while I was in Trinidad.

“Happy new year!
“Here is a picture, Vallejo, California Senior High School, Black Student Union, 1973.
“Note Larry Pratt, the zebra killer, [kneeling] in the lower right hand corner.”

[Not to be confused with Larry Pratt, of Gunowners of America!

Note that while several of the girls are smiling, only one boy smiles. All of the other boys had perfected the black racist scowl from central casting.

Sorry about the picture quality; the version sent me was grainy but relatively clear, but my "save image as" function does not result in a perfect copy.]

Larry Craig Green, one of two living NOI/Zebra killers still in prison, is scheduled for a parole hearing on Tuesday, August 27.

I check the California Inmate Locator periodically and discovered this piece of news. Will the MSM take notice?

The California Parole Board has been generous in granting paroles the last few years. In 2018, Joe Remiro, one of the SLA killers in the 1973 murder of Oakland School Superintendent Marcus Foster was paroled. Remiro was the last SLA member still incarcerated.

Also in 2018 Vernon Robinson, who killed a woman in her Hollywood apartment in 1963, was released. I met the prosecutor for this case in 2012.

Manson girl Leslie Van Houten has been granted parole twice. The last time a few months ago. Each time left-wing California Governors Jerry Brown and Gavin Newsom have overruled the parole board.

It will be interesting to see what happens with "Zebra Killer" Larry Craig Green. Remiro had been in for 45 years, about the same length of time as Green.
