    Book details


It's around 7:00 a.m. on December 4, 1969, and attorney Jeff Haas is in a police lockup in Chicago, interviewing Fred Hampton's fiancee. She is describing how the police pulled her from the room as Fred lay unconscious on their bed. She heard one officer say, "He's still alive." She then heard two shots. A second officer said, "He's good and dead now." She looks at Jeff and asks, "What can you do?"

The Assassination of Fred Hampton is Haas's personal account of how he and People's Law Office partner Flint Taylor pursued Hampton's assassins, ultimately prevailing over unlimited government resources and FBI conspiracy. Not only a story of justice delivered, the book puts Hampton in a new light as a dynamic community leader and an inspiration in the fight against injustice.

"A must-read." --Len Weinglass, lawyer and civil rights activist"[A] disturbing eyewitness account in straightforward prose. . . . A still-chilling tale of law-enforcement misconduct." --"Kirkus Reviews"

    Just finished this...Fred Hampton talented chairman of the BPP - Shot in the head twice while he slept.Fred Hampton himself leaves early in the book & we get a lot of the court cases that follow.Mr Haas gives a great book about the course it runs.Malcom X, Martin Luther King jr & Fred Hampton 3 of the greats all murdered ...all worth reading about ... all worth remembrance.

    A must read for anyone who has an interest in Fred Hampton, the Black Panther Party, the civil rights movement or indeed Cointelpro. Superbly written by Jeffrey Haas (co-founder of the People's Law Office). A remarkably detailed account of the stark truth of the slaying of the influential leader of the Chicago chapter of the Black Panther Party Fred Hampton and the subsequent cover up and the legal battles that followed is as fascinating as it is unbelievable. If you are a scholar of the subject you simply have to read this book.
