Former LAPD Chief Dropped From Biggie Lawsuit

biggiechain21.jpgAccording to the Associated Press, on Friday, August 24, former LAPD internal affairs chief, Michael Berkow, was dropped as a defendant in a lawsuit that claimed he ordered warrantless searches of the work areas of detectives investigating the Notorious B.I.G.’s murder. Berkow was dismissed from the case because according to a Superior Court judge, he no longer works for the LAPD. Berkow was sued in March of 2007 by the Police Protective League for allegedly ordering the search of 35 homicide detective’s desks, including those who were working on Biggie’s case. The Wallace estate has continually argued that rogue LAPD officers were involved in Biggie’s tragic murder on March 9, 1997.

    at this point, finding out that Biggie was murdered by the LAPD would mean nothing. Maybe it would provide some closure…..the powers at be know who did it, and the same with Pac, RIP to both

    Instead of playing the blame game these people should just let Pac and Big rest in peace. I doubt it was LAPD but in the end all the niggas in the East-West rivalry are responsible for letting it go too far. Although i miss both of em’, something needed to happen to destroy gangsta rap and make niggas take life seriously

    the people in the west/east coast rivalry are not responsible for this…this so called “beef” was blown up in the media to further damage the reputation of hip hop

    That shit is some straight Depature shit. rest in peace Biggie.


    10 years and still nothing.
    but for some strange reason,they can find saddam hussein!
    what the fuck is up with that.
    pac and big was used by the media to get more ratings and to get money.
    at the end of the day,they destroy 2 of the biggest rappers at that time,made an all out war between to coast’s,and left two families wondering!
    big’s kids got to live without thier father around and pac’s nephews and nieces won’t see thier uncle again!
    life’s a bitch and then you die!
    r.i.p. to big and pac!
