On December 4, 1969, Fred Hampton, the young founder and leader of the Chicago Black Panther Party, was murdered in his bed while sleeping, along with Peoria, Illinois Black Panther leader Mark Clark. Although Hampton, 21, organized the Black community and was murdered nearly five decades ago, we have much to learn from his vision, and how the government killed him and covered up his murder. Moreover, what we are witnessing today with the police in Chicago and the police in general is par for the course, as this story has been told before.
Chicago police just released this shocking video of Laquan McDonald, age 17, being shot SIXTEEN TIMES as he walks away from cops during an arrest. The cop, Officer Jason Van Dyke, has been charged with first degree murder. Spread his shame!
