Fred Hampton was assassinated in his sleep at the age of 21 by the Chicago Police Department under the direction of the FBI and it’s COINTELPRO program. If it wasn’t for the 1971 break-in of an FBI field office by an activist group, Citizens’ Commission to Investigate the FBI, the operations could have still been active to this day. Had it not been for the dissent groups like these and the desire for truth, COINTELPRO may never have ended.
