This 2011 deathbed confession letter by black officer Roy Wood has been released to the public 10 years after it was written. The letter was placed into the hands for Wood’s cousin, not to be opened until after his death.

The former NYPD officer states he was forced to find and plant evidence on Civil Rights leaders per the instruction of his superiors in the 60s or face retalition by having evidence planted on him. He details the NYPD’s involvement in Malcolm X’s case in the letter.

This is ironic since its not only the anniversary of Malcom’s murder but Judas and the Black Messiah has been getting rave reviews per almost the same situation. See letter below…
