Ninety+ shots fired, all by police, who had a detailed floor plan of the apartment and knew exactly where Hampton would be. An FBI infiltrator drugged Hampton's drink the night before.
The cops shot him, pulled his 8-month pregnant girlfriend off of him, and shot him some more.
Ultimate cost to the authorities: $1.85 million to settle the civil suit.
The informant who drugged him later committed suicide. Kind of reminds me of this other story about a guy who was betrayed and executed.
I still get pissed when articles and people talk about him dying in a raid instead of getting assassinated in his sleep.
Apparently they tried to name a street after him somewhat recently and the scumshit police rallied against it.
He was only 21 years old.
Wow, glad I don't live in that country.
