The forgotten police bombing of a Philadelphia pro-black group


On 13 May 1985, Philadelphia police bombed the Move compound, killing 11 people, including five children, and destroying an entire neighborhood. The countercultural group lived communally and had a history of violent encounters with police.

And the city re-elected the mayor that authorized bombing of that house after the incident.

It’s an interesting look at how far the government will go and how bad at managing these situations they are.
