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.
