The Murder of Fred Hampton (1971) - film began with the intention of portraying Hampton and the Illinois Black Panther Party. During production, Hampton was killed by the Chicago Police Department. : Documentaries: "We talked about the Mississippi rights' workers murders, as this shocking, aberrant act of violence, but we never talked about Emmitt Till, or George Lee, or Herbert Lee, or Louis Allen, or the tuskegee experiments, or the (earlier) tulsa riots, or ANY of the serious, regular, oppression that actually necessitated, at the very least, a threat of armed response. We didn't talk about cointelpro, and herbert hoover's absolutely insane determination to not only brand the black pathers as a racist hate organization, but to actually make them one by hook or crook. We didn't talk about how the FBI seeded agents into their ranks with the express purpose of driving them into violence (and succeeded). How the police engaged in murderous, unprovoked attacks on black panther centers, such as the one that killed Fred Hampton.
