Nation of Islam leader defied orders

LOS ANGELES – A Nation of Islam leader suspected of assaulting a police officer disobeyed orders during a vigil for a shooting victim, according to a transcript of the incident.
When an officer asked Minister Tony Muhammad to "back up" during Thursday's vigil, Minister Tony Muhammad twice said "make me."
A spokesman for the Nation of Islam had no comment on the transcript.
The Los Angeles Police Department released the recording and transcript Saturday amid accusations that police beat up Muhammad, the Nation of Islam's Western regional director.
The audio recording that picked up the words had been a conversation between an officer and a police dispatcher.
Muhammad appeared at a news conference a day after the vigil with the left side of his face badly swollen.
Police officials said it was Muhammad who was "very belligerent and uncooperative."
Muhammad was arrested on suspicion of committing battery against a police officer and later released on $20,000 bail.
Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and police officials have promised an investigation into the incident.
Jihad declared against LAPD
Nation of Islam flyer calls for gangs to unite against cops

The Nation of Islam in Los Angeles is calling on the Crips and Bloods street gangs to stop fighting each other – and to unite in a jihad against the LAPD.
That's the essence of a flyer obtained by KFI News and circulated in South Los Angeles, calling on members of two violent street gangs to start a "holy war" against the police department.
The telephone number listed for the Nation of Islam's Los Angeles mosque near 87th and Vermont has been disconnected, but a check of a reverse directory reveals the phone number on the flyer is connected to the mosque at the same address, according to KFI.
The Nation of Islam's L.A. leader, Minister Tony Muhammad, has claimed he was the victim of an unprovoked attack by LAPD officers at the scene of a vigil for a murdered gang member.
The LAPD last week released an audio tape of some garbled radio transmissions in which they say Muhammad can be heard challenging officers.
The photograph on the flyer appears to have been taken at a news conference held just after Muhammad was released from jail. Muhammad and the Nation of Islam have not returned calls for comment.
It's unclear who created the flyer so the LAPD has declined to comment, other than saying officers have been aware of them for several days.
"This is deeply disturbing," Los Angeles Police Protective League President Bob Baker told KFI. "Quite frankly, this is a case in which I hope our mayor, our police commission and our community leaders can step in to remind everyone of our shared priorities."
