1985- The Philadelphia State Police bomb a house in Philadelphia occupied by an African American activist organization, MOVE. The bombing kills 11 occupants of the house and triggers a fire that destroys a neighborhood and leaves over 300 people homeless.
Cleveland police officers responded to 37 year old Tanesha Anderson’s house because she was bi-polar and her family hoped they could calm her down. They responded to the situation as a “disturbing the peace” call. Everyone agreed that Tanesha should undergo an evaluation at St. Vincent Charity Medical Center. But things went horribly wrong when the cops threw her to the ground where her head was bashed against the curb, killing her. She died in front of her family right outside her house.
