Malcolm X Shooter Set Free
Posted on Apr 27, 2010
Thomas Hagan, formerly known as Talmadge X Hayer, was the only one of Malcolm X’s killers to cop to the crime. After spending 45 years in jail and on work-release, the contrite Hagan has been paroled.
Hagan, who has repeatedly expressed regret for his actions, applied for parole 16 times before a board approved his request last month.
He had been allowed to spend five nights a week at his Brooklyn home on a work-release programme for the past 22 years.
