UPDATE: TMZ Reports Malikah Saban Shabazz, 51 of Stark, New Hampshire, and Bettih Bahiyah Shabazz, 19 are the daughter and granddaughter of Malcolm X.

1/27/2017: On January 25, 2017, a Prince George’s County police officer was on his way home from work when he ran a tag on a U-Haul truck.

When he found that the truck had been reported stolen to the Vermont State Police earlier that day, the officer broadcasted a lookout for the vehicle.

At approximately 9:50 p.m., a Charles County Sheriff’s officer located the vehicle in a parking lot off of Drury Drive in La Plata.

The two occupants, Malikah Saban Shabazz, 51 of Stark, New Hampshire, and Bettih Bahiyah Shabazz, 19, with no fixed address, were arrested.

Further investigation revealed 7 pit bull terriers, some with severe injuries, in the back of the truck that were kept in inhumane conditions.

Animal Control responded and transported the dogs to the Tri-County Animal Shelter, where they are currently in stable condition. Malikah Shabazz was charged with 7 counts of animal cruelty and theft.

Bettih Shabazz was charged with theft.

Cpl. T. Yates is investigating.

      Why is Hogan using $24 million Maryland taxpayer dollars to improve Ravens stadium when the Ravens are increasing ticket prices because of a new improved stadium? Use taxpayer money to improve the stadium then charge the same Maryland taxpayer more money because its an improved stadium. What will the republicans think of next?

      This does not represent Malcolm X’s legacy. This daughter didn’t even know her father. She, along with her twin sister were born after Malcolm’s death. Every family enjoys a little dysfunction. If you recall it was her nephew, also named Malcolm, who was responsible for her mother’s, Betty Shabazz’s, death by setting his grandmother’s apartment on fire.

Are you not demonstrating verbal hatred?!? These women clearly did not regard these animals lives with as meaning as you all did and yet here you all are with as much regard for theirs. Wrong is wrong and NO the “community”leaders dont need to be involved no more then is there need for anyone to peg this as a race issue sorry bigots you can have a sit save your opinions for other matters.

Equality is all that anyone of color or race has ever asked for and those two ladies should be punished but we her grandfather stood for should not be joked upon.. it only proves what he and Martin stood for..
