A former member of the Compton Police Department (CPD) and his son were recently indicted on charges of drug trafficking and money laundering. Former Compton Mayor Omar Bradley disbanded CPD due to numerous allegations of missing narcotics and guns from the Compton station. Ironically, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office received an internal affairs report titled “Compton Corruption Report” which details the crimes, yet the case was rejected by the DA’s office. The other caveat to this indictment is the alleged link between CPD and the death of rap artist Tupac Shakur.
Reggie Wright Jr. was once head of security for Suge Knight, a well known Blood from Compton. Knight recently alluded to Wright Jr.’s involvement in the death of Tupac Shakur. The claim is Knight was the intended target that fateful night in Las Vegas.
According to the indictment, Wright Jr. is now alleged to be an associate of the Grape Street Crips.
This case developed as a result of a multi agency investigation, which didn’t include any agencies out of Los Angeles.
