Thomas Hagan, the only man who admitted his role in the 1965 assassination of  Malcolm X, was paroled Tuesday. Hagan was freed a day earlier than planned because his paperwork was processed more quickly than anticipated, according to the New York State Department of Correctional Services.

Hagan, 69, walked out of the minimum-security Lincoln Correctional Facility read to start his new life but do yall think this is right? Hagan had been in a full-time work-release program since March 1992 that allowed him to live at home with his family in Brooklyn five days a week while reporting to the prison just two days. Last month, Hagan pleaded his case for freedom: To return to his family, to become a substance abuse counselor and to make his mark on what time he has left in this world.

He had been before that body 14 other times since 1984. Each time, he was rejected. Hagan was no ordinary prisoner. He is the only man to have confessed in the killing of Malcolm X, who was gunned down while giving a speech in New York’s Audubon Ballroom in 1965.

“I have deep regrets about my participation in that,” he told the parole board on March 3, according to a transcript. “I don’t think it should ever have happened.”

Hagan had been sentenced to 20 years to life imprisonment after being found guilty at trial with two others in 1966. The other two men were released in the 1980s and have long denied involvement in the killing.
To win his release, Hagan was required to seek, obtain and maintain a job, support his children and abide by a curfew. He must continue to meet those conditions while free.

    WTF!!!!!! This Hagan character should spend spend the rest of his life behind bars. The Big Deal is a Malcolm X lost his life to a careless person so why should the system care about him. Im so disgusted by this NEWS!!!!! What is this world coming to? Did Martin Luther King teach us anything

    Just another dumb ignorant negro who was paid by the white man to kill another black man. FREAKING IDIOT!

  7. Jolie I agree, this person deserves death.Malcolm didn’t go back home to his wife and children but he can. The pale faces paid off those self hating toms and they killed one of the most powerful voices in the world. Green Light on this punk and that slick head faraCoon
