Former Your Black Muslim Bakery CEO Yusuf Bey IV didn't realize that phone calls from Santa Rita Jail in Pleasanton are recorded by authorities, so he was caught on tape, attempting to coerce a bakery follower into not testifying against him, according to the Chauncey Bailey Project. Bey IV, who is charged with murdering journalist Chauncey Bailey, also didn't realize that in-person visits to the jail are recorded too, because he tried to get bakery follower Kalil Raheem to come talk to him. But the coercion didn't work. Raheem, who had been arrested with Bey IV for trashing West Oakland liquor stores, turned state's evidence against his ex-boss. And now prosecutors have even more damning evidence against the former bakery leader because of his phone calls. No wonder the bakery went bankrupt under his command.
