Summary After Chauncey Bailey, an editor at the Oakland Post, was "assassinated" the newspaper "leaped on the story. The next day, a 19-year-old employee of a long time Oakland business called Your Black Muslim Bakery was charged with killing Bailey and said in a confession he later recanted that he shot the editor to stop him from pursing stories about the bakery's trouble finances and internal power struggles."
