November twenty six that we will be at the Latin in Portland OR twenty seventh Marines Memorial in surf just go in go to a podcast dot com in here toward a link there involve either yes um ace do is to say and it was on this podcast but occasionally I would say Don't ever go to university Nissan remember that I don't because I've and so people don't buy car there and some feel that you use a blue toy with two coke open you get what the morn that they that something really horrific and sure enough about two weeks ago there are the feds crack down oh well so they're totally they've been totally just a fucking people over all time scan that they've been doing like it was done it's been done for decades trying this classic just fucking bait and switch or shit so they're going to as my car definitely a bite to it yea yea you guys a Pikachu Nissan enjoyed this entry to love it so what I'm saying is is when I when I give people a warning I Joe to do so for reasons because I think there's something as opposed to just something like I had to scream or something those jelly something shady ok so I want to talk about this off to a hotel in Los Angeles really quick okay because that's where we held the podcast festival and we had some disagreements with them about how they're handling things not so great but then they did something that is so unconscionable and put someone's personal safety in danger that I feel I need to talk about sure people do not bring a business they're basically we have sore tight group of people that run this thing and our wives come across friends come and someone's wife the hotel neglected to put on the roof okay and then they deny that they were told to put around the room so they their stories don't quite right the hotel stories to their everyday every excuse they made was like that doesn't make any sense it's tough to tell logic suffer tell you to logic so one up happening is they were told to put this person this person's wife on them to each person had to leave at night not the life the other person know that the person who's the guy works for the festival right the wife had a key she was down at the bar having a drink she went to go back to the hotel room the key didn't work in the elevator ok they ended up kicking her out of the hotel to walk in the morning ok so they put a woman out on this tree at two AM who had a key to a hotel or they wouldn't go up and check to see of her belongings rather or it is so fucked up an unconscionable that you cannot believe that hotel that this is crazy and so we will not be doing the podcast as well there again and we would highly recommend that people do not use the hotel because this person could seriously hurt yeah well that's just crazy I mean they have a key yet or they just they just they did not put her name on the right they try to write so yet so no more so no more and I highly recommend that nobody go there nobody go there that's just it was a super dangers were lucky that nothing happens right so what that person do some ended up sleeping in her car ok on the street to us and share Ok well as long as we have like a happy ending so I can say very often but when something happens that I feel is a big deal and I think people she warned about um that's the case here well and saw foto for knocking down places let's go don't go to soup plantation thank you and I'm not even get into it but they can go eat it yet also the Jets just mini mart looking for really going to list shake shake his piece on Santa Monica knew of no no no I don't want to get

Beyond I would go to Walmart time Warner Cable and eighteen th when use them dull Tyson chicken in Nestle Chevy pro I now read I guess there if Night A forty eight ok Fred Hampton was born in the suburb on the southwestern side of Chicago he was the third child of Francis and Iberia who had grown up in northern Louisiana I'd be real but as happens with names names just go through this dough cycle where people just like you know what i beri is crazy Liberia I Iberia Iberia imagines and an African name okay I think she might have been ever but Iberia is it didn't stick no it didn't stick around America and never give me a bunch of letters to the people some other letters from people not of people send letters to their families farmed the same land angrily Iberia Johnson how is their family's farm sale their great grandparents were slaves of the goals you from anyway Fred's father moved to Chicago in the nineteen thirties looking for work and got a job at the Corn Products Company Limited make on products that I hate how we got coin Shea we got corn car what if I don't like lor we got on the Okay Iberia also work there becoming a union a union steward during a two month strike she cooked meals for seven hundred people's everyday wow it's been great pressure when Fred was ten years old they moved to Maywood which is a working class suburb west Chicago at that time about twenty five percent like people Fred was clearly very special kid kids love him the teachers loved him he was never alone in elementary school he was recognized as sharp talker he loved to read especially history when his high school friend noticed that the black kids who weren't doing well were counseled out of school or flunked out that is on the idea of counseling amount hey you not really doing good in law agreed to down a math and science is still eye catching Up a little what if you caught up while working at a factory I kind want to get an education I know occasion where there's different kinds of vacations but Kentucky Fried Chicken if you work there you get an education in making fast food and the Haitian you go work for McDonnell was actually talkin to my buddy Toby and he was saying that you recommended that he stick around to go to school that I get better grades than I can Yeah but Toby's a special kid you're not as much you're not as specialized okay so anyway hope you get it I'm going to get out here is a manure factory ok well this is definitely getting better the options are getting better no programs are offered to help these kids Fred demanded more black teachers and more black administrators at the school and that happened so that happened then what's the next part it works and what David Charles Anderson something good happens Roseanne is in quote Fred was the reason I was hired at proviso East High School as dean in charge of attendance and other time I'd been applying for six years and never had been given an interview so Fred high school student is making shit happen right feds push for change was just beginning only white girls were nominated for homecoming Queens we organized a student walkout and boycott to protest the result was his high school electing their first black homecoming queen see I bet you there was like a low white girl attendance at that they're like I know how I taught them to daily is the same bathroom the next year I think maybe this year they go to the dad said do whatever they give the encore right but the kill when hear this year this year you don't spend four years cultivating to be the e Cummings I have the the i Sound is likable down II Coming Out Day and I am yet ok they can win if they tie with some ok ok hahas so he but he wouldn't charge in like a fiery in your face way he was like an amazing communicator he was a barn an amazing communicator ok the principal quote Fred's powerful and resonating voice called for calm and discussion he worked jobs the team as a stock boy in her store dishwasher and he found factory jobs in the summer he also found jobs for other unemployed black teens in his neighborhood ok so it was just getting himself jobs yet he was talking other people into hiring kids how a just or the power of persuasion he is just that likable he's that gifted speaker ok he pushed the Village of Maywood to fund a summer job program has been some positive people are going they are born leaders yet share of K Fed was helping others about himself quote If you walk through life and don't help anybody you haven't had much of a life in nineteen sixty five when he was just seventeen years old he started the west suburban youth chapter of the NAACP Fred walked with art and Doctor Martin Luther King and was strongly behind the movement but one day in Jefferson Park during a march a heckler walked up and spit in the face of a female March or after that Fred told Reverend King he couldn't keep marching for nonviolence in the face of violent mobs away in the fall of nineteen sixty seven Fred and Jim ivory urged a rally of black youth to go to a Maywood Village Board meeting and demand a public swimming pool and recreation centers and pools are segregated Wright also other weird stuff and other weird stuff so so now you can see a change yeah he knows shift write this they showed up by God so these kids showed up but the board to not let them inside the Maywood Police then came and tear gassed all the kids that's fine the crowd then ran down Main Street breaking windows she says what a horrible how horribly can you handle situations oh that's that's the worst worst way to do it all around friend Jim I really those white people ho know it just proves that I told you that the pool so and then you heard they went on a window smashing Torre good Lord lets forget about our hot dogs are here friend Jim Tyree were arrested and charged with mob action because I do with rationalism because of their speeches ok after his arrest he was put on the F F B I's key agitator index a fun list not as catchy as much not as great but you get a great bumper sticker yeah ice vest yeah all you do get the best of a tote bag with a vest so this is a list of activists that FBI Director J Edgar Hoover ordered FBI agents to monitor closely with him he's such a dick he's like fuck and twenty or some shit not even that may be eighteen from then on Fred was targeted by the Maywood Police arrested over and over for bullshit traffic violations it happened so much that he completely stopped driving of God at the runner as for not having a car no wait no I'm back at the same time the Black Panther Party formed in California use an open carry laws they carry guns and police to the police they were reacting to incidents of police brutality against African Americans the Black Panthers grew and grew and by nineteen sixty eight they expanded from Oakland to many cities in the US Fred Hampton joined in November nineteen sixty eight and very quickly rose to the ranks soon becoming chairman of the Illinois Chapter at twenty years will get twenty years yeah the Black Panther started a breakfast program for children providing free hot breakfast for kids before school it's adorable Fred went from site to site working at I mean have you ever will do one about the Black Panthers at some point because it's just a crazy story but they like their whole idea was like up with the whole community while staring up face right right yeah so Federation site to site working they were I mean they were like thee for they were the frustrated arm of the anti racist move yet they basically basically with agitators yesterday they were the Let's Get your fucking faces yet handle it yeah yeah with your with the rules exactly right that's that's the part because the truth is at like even as a kid I remember when you hear about it like totally had a negative connotation they were like they were disrupted as they were problematic they were the issue yet and about it Moyer like them are honestly the more makes you think how amazing Martin Luther King once because he hung in the pocket so stymie the crazy yet so Fred would go from side is a working breakfast programs talking the kids and their parents about the Black Panther Party kids were taught revolutionary songs and soon the Black Panther Party was also running free neighborhood health clinics Fred didn't believe in bullshit want some Panthers from the west Custer in Chicago and they call the local office asking for some quotes sisters to be sent down to the hotel Fred responded quote you can tell them Panther women in Chicago are working on pet the program's not as whores for Panther leaders ok so for twenty year old sample is because guys was like a big fuckin move right that some balls yeah he didn't tolerate bullshit as I said in the Black Panthers you have balls that's something a good example of this was when Black Panther William once Fred's bodyguard told Fred he was building a rocket launcher that is what's the segue way I I want some hot sauce yeah I'm actually building a rocket as we build in Iraq and what you said coffee but building a rocket to launch where this place has the best waffles I'm so friggin give this a secret he called O'Neill in for the entire Chicago chapter and told O'Neill he was crazy in front of everybody and that his actions made him suspicious and then he accused him of being a police agent Gees that's got like when you hear that I was like fighting a new Iraq the the I was really cool dude was going to fire it but until this was the first crazy idea O'Neill had he once built an electric chair lol lol lol lol to be used quote To punish and deter or informants wow so wait so we will come to some interesting ideas ok fries hide in bed that because he got to test a little friend said that the trail the The Friends of the electorate air and missile were madness in order to kneel to dismantle the Panther members in Chicago went door to door in many black communities to hear complaints get signatures on petitions for community control of police but gangs control the neighborhood so nineteen sixty nine Fred worked out a treaty with the Black disciples gang together he created an alliance with the Young Lords and the Young Patriots to form the first rainbow coalition to protest police brutality those other gangs are I believe Latino gangs ok so the white man's dream is coming to fruition well this was noted by the FBI other law authorities cut this was a great concern the amount of flour vans that are showing flower van the flower stores in January nineteen sixty nine the plea Chicago police arrested Fred what he was appearing on a local TV station arrested him when he was on TV and TV news cameras or live as Fred was led away on an old traffic warrant God what a bunch of pricks they did not handcuff him which he thought was strange and then they put him in the police car and Fred saw a handgun lying on the seat in front of me realizes being said that he put his hands outside the car and just started screaming There's a God in the car there's a God in the car somebody that again n g u because they live on their people watching though but police couldn't do anything she can to further explain this account they were going they oh so they're going to Oh shit ok there and say it again oh shit oh shit okay I'm up to date now famous letter from is on trial for another charge the summer before and ice cream man had been knocked down in size truck and said One bars of ice cream were handed out to local kits get ahead of them so it's hard to tighten of them rooting for that crime or not I mean it's rather nerdy and its Democrat yet the Good humor man takes the brunt of it is you know I think that I think back then although it's Maywood kid so it's on twenty five percent my body my body or an drove an ice cream truck for a summer I would go around with them ok and we could sell ice cream it was such it was just the weirdest experience being inside the thing played three songs too and he said that when he closed his eyes he'd like to hear the end of the repeated so the police arrested Fred after the victim identified him from the picture Fred had nothing to do with the great ice cream caper but the cops flew the ice cream vendor back from Vietnam to testify against him oh my god they want to fret yeah and that guy's laughter at the lottery I make a week of it it was one thing to be named on the agitator list but when he started making peace with gangs became a serious threat right Fred was convicted and at his sentencing the prosecutor asked quote Do you feel that a legitimate means of obtaining what you're after is armed violence or armed revolution Fred answered quote I believe we tried anything else we would end up like Doctor Martin Luther King who was now dead you know he should've said when I scream you scream I scream for Jess to all oh but but his answers back and yet great ah yeah well yeah we try one of our guys tried that yeah right kill them that yes Fed was sentenced to two to five years for crime that was done with no weapon in which little was taken and having no prior record so he's never been convicted of anything if you give ice cream out I feel like you said not to convict it's the craziest show you not to drive around it's crazy sentence will you in full or I gave out a bunch of drumsticks and the crying the combat seventy two rocket pops like a possum bitch sent me those very harsh and common sense week after it was sent to prison FBI agents raided the Black Panther headquarters just told the Panthers that the office was surrounded the data search warrant and that no one would be hurt if the Panthers did not resist okay so there's really no straightforward ups are just a great time to take a break down broke down the front door went up stairs and pointed the guns at people inside who are not all resisting that the number the call yet well it just works you know things change between now and in the break in other words folks drop the FBI seized three thousand dollars in cash and took property records which included lists of contributors ok so I thought meant like vinyl food for the guys like Rina yam know if we time a cream that goes on like the high I think are the band The record's home and the OK from power trio began adding I don't like their attitude food for the breakfast program was dumped on the floor are smart and legally purchased weapons were taken right nothing was ever returned right but it does justice to the eight Panthers on the premises were arrested and charged with harboring a fugitive which was true there had been a fugitive their hours before he was gone that's actually the FBI got the warrant because they knew the fugitive was there they knew this because the fugitive was an informant so they sent wait wait wait they got a guy who was a fugitive and they serve them to the Black Panther office and then arrested them for letting in the guy that they set how what is called Chuck and stopping crime okay but certainly not legal the I don't share yet it's entrapment it's the jury is it is Dan Fletcher a surge of additional funds rate yes ya I object on the grounds of complete fun jury is ridiculous plus there's a then goes going and a lot of flow over me to o J automation to the beret lover to do limited to the and five during a rest my case thank you times a day on the wrong time winner also my first try didn't know us at the prosecutor's table I am I to be told I suck and the fudge since my company called injuries yet when Dave goes right and egg was chocolate with my smile in the middle anyway I hope you get often is but if not on the tennis and the masa with his returns I think it's a good name yet you have any ideas what they got the verdict ways later all charges were dropped but whose stories had done the damage to the Panthers as was expected right so now there's fodder for the media to be alive what a budget may turn to an October fourth nineteen sixty nine someone shot a black Panthers office and the Panthers returned fire police were called the police broke the front door confiscating more files and beat the Panthers before leaving the next morning the Panthers were charged with attempted murder of the police ok that the charges were then dropped because of many contradictions yet when police officers and in their arrest reports I mean even that's hard when did they beat you guys up but we beat them are actually beat them we bade each other badly I get my name's uh them of the make and sell up to make an M A K sad and full version on Live October Fed was released on an appeal bond his government Debra Johnson now seven month pregnant rented a five room apartment became like a second Chicago Panther headquarters that people were always staying these apartments were called Panther pads and they're happening all over the country Panthers thought they would be killed at any moment so they were moving out of their homes away from their families and staying with other Panthers an apartment so it's fun someone was always on guard at the front door or outside another basically at war with the Please write so a bunch of cops been killed much has been killed precious truck and mayhem Brett and nobody's budget no way no second the Panthers had high hopes for Fred quote We want Fred to become a national spokesperson he could say what everyone else did but say it better he had the ability to move people better than anyone I've ever heard things were having a very bad direction between Chicago cops in black activists and many others this was after the Chicago Democratic Convention sixty eight which was like a war on the streets between police and protesters and then there was the FBI FBI had created Intel Pro which stands for counter Intelligence Program originally kicked off in nineteen fifty six to destroy the Communist Party USA their current actions were often illegal and usually over in the late sixties quite a pro was used to target black activists in the mid sixties Martin Luther King public it publicly attack the FBI for not investigating white supremacist terrorism Jager Hoover called King a quote King quote the most notorious liar States he listed he's such a mean ok Martin taking you know the most notorious liar oh yeah yeah right yeah yeah obviously yeah yeah he didn't even have that dream I lie or the prize until prose and King a suicide package no I do want one of those would not care package as a nice ring to it quite the ride back was like the biscuits might be present they sent to the great Mary suicide pact I need care package she catch inside or on the recordings of sexual affairs he had a note telling him to kill him self that is so crazy I know about the that they were they the they bugged his place in the head like those recordings but that's cry to know that they explained how there is no way out of it how it would destroy his
