Robin Kestrel - 2011-09-04 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: .85 million to settle the civil suit.
wtf japan - 2011-09-04 The informant who drugged him later committed suicide. Kind of reminds me of this other story about a guy who was betrayed and executed.
Mancakes - 2011-09-04 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.

Old People - 2014-11-19 His brothers in arms had just gunned down 9 cops. Violent racists who advocate the overthrow of the government are domestic terrorists and should be treated as such. White liberals may love him, but if you read some of his writings you quickly realize he did not reciprocate. There are plenty of incidents of police brutality against legitimate civil rights activists that are worth investigating, and worth mourning; this piece of shit lived by the sword.
