Twenty-five years ago Frank Powell dropped a four-pound C4 bomb on a West Philadelphia row house, resulting in the deaths of five children and six adults associated with MOVE - a group that advocated for human and animal rights. Powell was never held accountable for his actions since he wore a piece of metal on his chest from the Philadelphia Police Department. His colleagues, who had fired 10,000 rounds into the dwelling, faced no repercussions. Nor did those who ordered the use of such aggressive violence or those from the same criminal organization that had seven years prior shot-up MOVE's previous residence.

As the video below details, the history of the Philadelphia Police Department and MOVE underscores the harm that stems from granting others authority. If this concept is new to you and you advocate for peace and believe everyone is responsible for their actions no matter their title or amount of metal on their uniform I encourage you to read about private defense agencies.

Much love to our good bud George Donnelly for helping to share this story.

Below are pictures from the incident set to Leftover Crack's "Operation M.O.V.E."

For coverage and analysis of other related incidents, check out four videos we shot last year when on the road with Motorhome Diaries:

If you know of an incident that happened in one of the cities that we have yet to visit that if covered, will help to showcase the violence upon which the State rests, please let us know.
