On May 13, 1985 a police helicopter dropped a C-4 bomb, supplied by the FBI, on the roof of MOVE's house in West Philly. A fire started that was allowed to burn, and eventually destroyed 61 homes. Police shot at the fleeing occupants of the house. 11 died

Thank you for posting. Painful to read, and sadly, not unbelievable. I am not the most informed person, not at all, but I do believe that the FBI and our government have committed, and continue to commit horrrendous crimes against the people. If not overtly, such as in this case, then most definitely, covertly.

It still boggles my mind that there has been and continues to be so much hate in this country and so much abuse by governmental agencies against the most vulnerable populations. Thank you for the reminder of this horrific act and may we all strive for equality, dignity, respect and justice for all.

The day we see all life forms as one,be it with regard to color, creed caste, sex, form, shape, size, species.... and learn to respect life..
We have taken one step towards living life, ALIVE by being a part of it...

This post reminded me of..a few facts..
Fact# Cruelity springs from weakness
Fact# When the sun rises it rises for everyone...

Thanks Angola T.

It never ceases to amaze me of how corrupt and unjust the government can be and still are...not just the U.S government, but governments from all over the globe as we can see by all the protests taking place. You would think that the U.S is a free and democratic society but they are not...and then they pretend to extend their so called democracy on other countries to hide their own transgressions on their own people...what a bunch of hypocrites! The U.S government needs to LISTEN to it's people and stop beating them down, and the people of the U.S need to stop letting the government walk all over them...although the "supreme court" has made this next to impossible by enabling corporate money to buy elections. Democratic..my A** !! This is only to prevent us regular people from standing up and voting out the corporations who are RUNNING the government anyway. Anyone who gets in their way will be discredited and this has been going on ever since they stole the land from the Indians who were here first.

Pity is an afterthought, we need to respect every life in order to make things right at the time of confrontation. A lack of respect for the individual is the hallmark of the American Government. Cruelty is the norm, blaming the victim is their regular tactic. What is wrong with Americans? Are we blind to truth? Do we not understand that this could be us or our children the government is taking ctions against?

I'll NEVER EVER forget this, I may have only been a bit over 10 years old when it happened, but I remember everything that was said and put on the news. Were the people involved in the MOVE organization right for doing what they were doing in this neighborhood? NO, but it was MORE WRONG for what our Philadelphia Mayor and Congress-people did to them.

I remember being haunted by the smoke I saw over the horizon coming from this area for years.

I was scared that it was my best friend, at the time, neighborhood. I was raised in South West Philly, only blocks from here.

No I'll never forget MOVE and what happen to them poor people.

I remember this event all too clear myself. Like something from a bad horror movie,even without the media giving all the details of course. I do recall thinking ..how could this be happening in America ? Bombing a building for any reason just seemed so far from what our laws and security were suppose to be about. and or handled. The loss of lives due to lack of what...patience on the side of the law ? That was then, just think what they'd do now...the same or worse is my guess.

Thanks for the reminder of this tragic event...one that no one should forget ...as it might be an all too common one again in our near future.

I too, remember this. In the Upper Darby area of Philly. I was living in Florida at the time, and remember being devastated at this news. What a horrible tragedy, and loss of lives!!! ! I grew up in Jersey, and my relatives in South Philly called me about this). Ms. Nyasha said it best: 'Freedom is a Constant Struggle'!!! Thank you, Angola for this.
