UPDATE 8/14/2012 2:20 am via FaceBook: “Khalid Shakur: 50 to 60 cops raided the library!!! it was pathetic an insulting since there were little girls selling their sex due to forced manipulation and they respond with overwhelming numbers for free books??!!! -No one (was arrested) when i left but there were still folks there extremely upset but still keeping their cool. I had to leave because I was about to lose it and it was so very upsetting.”
