James "Jimmy Henchman" Rosemond Confesses To Setting Up Tupac To Be Shot

Wow, it has been 16 years since Tupac Shakur was gundown, and 18 years since the staged Tupac robbery/shooting. It seems that now almost twenty years later James Rosemond a.k.a. Jimmy Henchman has confessed to the 1994 setting up of Tupac Shakur at New Yorks Quad Recording Studios. It seems that Rosemond himself attempted to negotiate a deal with authorities for one charge and unknowingly confessed to another. 

Global Grind reports via Village Voice, 

According to the Village Voice:
"Rosemond secretly admitted to involvement in Tupac's ambush during one of nine "Queen For A Day" proffer sessions with the government last autumn, court transcripts show. (In such sessions, suspects under investigation choose to enter an agreement with the government to confess knowledge of certain crimes with the agreement that the information won't be used to prosecute them.) His confession unfolded as he was trying to carve out a cooperation deal that might lead to a reduced sentence, according to federal prosecutors.
"If [Rosemond's attorney] is going to argue that this was a fabricated article, it's the government's position that we can put in the defendant's own admission about that particular shooting," the prosecutor said. "In saying it is not true, when in fact it is true, the government should be able to rebut that argument that he's making, [and introduce] that the defendant actually admitted to this 1994 shooting."
The revelation surfaced May 14 during a sidebar in the same Brooklyn federal court where Rosemond was later convicted of operating a multimillion-dollar crack ring that moved thousands of kilos of drugs and dirty cash between Los Angeles and New York. Twelve jurors took only two days to issue a unanimous verdict, convicting him of all 13 counts with which he was charged.
Before he was killed, Tupac recorded a song called "Against All Odds," in which he blamed Rosemond for orchestrating the assault at the Quad. He spit:
"Jimmy Henchman. . .
[You] set me up, wet me up... stuck me up.
But you never shut me up."
The Tupac shooting has been a staple in hip-hop lore, as it triggered the East Coast vs. West Coast war that waged through songs and videos.
Rosemond will never be charged for his role in the 1994 ambush on Shakur, which was classified by NYPD as a robbery.
In New York, the statute of limitations on robbery is seven years, which means the time to prosecute anyone for the Quad case expired 11 years ago. No one will ever go to jail for attacking Tupac: Not Jimmy or anyone who was implicated in the shooting."
Wow, is all I can say in regards to this story because, Tupac was adamant about his assailants; he stood firm when he made allegations, and he even named these guys who attempted to murder him an the entire time. It appeared to the fans that outsiders that Tupac was going crazy and had become about disoriented and paranoid after he had been shot. He insisted that it was not a robbery but an attempt to silence him forever. We'll Pac is dead and gone now, and what do you know almost twenty years later, the evidence shows that he was exactly right. This is so sad that our justice system is so negligent.R.I.P Tupac, I guess it's true what you say, " The Good Die Young". What Is Our Justice System Come To? should be the name of my next blog. What do you guys think of this situation?
