On December 4th, 1969, the Black Panther Party’s Illinois Chairman Fred Hampton was murdered by police. But his story is about much more than the raid that took his life. The movement Hampton helped create was unique, and revolutionary.

In the late 1960s, Fred Hampton helped lead a coalition of activists, working across racial lines against a corrupt city government that threatened their communities. At the core of their work were social programs, including free breakfasts, health clinics, and legal aid. Hampton named the group the Rainbow Coalition. And because of their impact, it wasn’t long before they got the attention of the police and the FBI. What followed was an assassination, and a coverup.

See how government and establishment plays with you. First it outlaws the things that are needed for collective good and then swoop in with the same things that they outlawed to make it seem like the government is there for collective good. Government is just there to fraud us all, and works on the simple logic of the people choosing the fraudsters in the name of election because a pain inflicted willingly hurts less. Doesn't it?

Was he killed for killing all the Police Officers? He did his job, to defend the United States, and protect the security of Black American People andd families in the Black American communities. Why was that an upset? Did they want them to pretend, he was a security defense guard?

We must never forget the revolutionaries that fought and died for freedoms. When all of this is over and we have what we seek, we must etch into stone their names and their deeds, and never forget how many gave their lives for our message to never end.

Whoever thinks the group black panthers is a bad thing pls educate yourself and stop being so hateful for no reason. Fred even made it a point to take the opportunity to strive with other groups when he saw it not only to show his group wasn’t racist but because he actually wanted a change for all ppl being oppressed not just a specific group!

I'm not surprised that the local and federal arms of the so called law would see someone like Hampton as a threat and assassinate him. What does surprise me is how sloppy the cover up was. I mean, you don't have to be a CSI to determine that nail heads aren't bullet holes.
