Black activist Ali Muhammad has become known in the Tampa area for speaking out against police violence and ending black crime.
And make no mistake: “I’m very anti-police,” he told WTVT-TV.
But Muhammad recently was granted a whole new perspective on what goes into law enforcement and the good that can come out of it.
He was robbed at gunpoint over the last weekend in July — a victim of black-on-black crime, the station said — and quickly called 911.
Following his gig as a DJ at a Ybor City club, Muhammad was walking down a street about 3 a.m. when he told WTVT “a young black male … just came up to me and said, ‘Give me your earrings and your backpack.’”
