Abdul Majid, also known as Anthony LaBorde, was a member of the Black Panther Party and the Black Liberation Army. Majid was convicted of the murder of New York City police officer John Scarangella, and the attempted murder of Scarangella's partner, Officer Richard Rainey. Officer Scarangella was murdered on 16 April, 1981, after he and his partner pulled over a van carrying Majid and Bashir Hameed. Majid and his co-defendant were both convicted, and Majid was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.

Majid is currently incarcerated at Green Haven Correctional Facility in Beekman, New York.

Some leftist political activists have claimed that Majid is a political prisoner.
