The Assassination of Fred Hampton: 47 Years Later

By Flint Taylor, At: Truthout

One of the lawyers in the Fred Hampton civil case reminds of just how bad the FBI Cointelpro program was under J. Edgar Hoover. It snuffed out the life of a young, charismatic Black Panther leader named Fred Hampton – one of the several assassinations of the sixties – and then went on to wipe out the Black Panther Party.
