The MOVE Bombing in Philadelphia on May 13, 1985

26 years ago today, the Philadelphia Police Department dropped a bomb on a house in West Philadelphia, killing most of the occupants inside. Living in the house were members of the MOVE Organization, a Philadelphia-based black liberation group. In the end, 11 people were killed (including 6 children) and 65 houses were destroyed. This video above pretty much sums it all up. So sad....
