January 13, 2008 marks the 25th anniversary of the Shannon Street Massacre. It was 25 year ago that 8 men died in a house on Shannon Street in the North Memphis Hyde Park neighborhood.

The eight deaths include that of Memphis Police Officer Robert Hester; whose death is equally as tragic. However it was the senseless killing of those seven young men by the special tactics unit of the Memphis Police Department that deserves special attention on this anniversary.

You can read more about this case from a NY Times article that was published around the time it happened. Here is a small excerpt from it, as well as link to read more about the incident.

Quote:
The police attacked a house with rifles and tear gas today, killing seven black members of a religious cult who had held an officer hostage for 30 hours while beating him to death.

The authorities said the officer, Patrolman R.S. Hester, 34 years old, apparently died several hours before the police decided to try to rescue him. His body, with his hands manacled behind his back, was found just inside the front door.

The delay in raiding the house was denounced by several officers. One officer, who said Patrolman Hester's screams were heard half a block away when the standoff began Tuesday night, asserted that police commanders ''let him die - that's just the bottom line.''

was the cop killed by friendly fire? I assume he wasn't killed by one of the house occupants since "massacre" implies they were unarmed

My uncle was chief of police during this time in Memphis. What you are not told is the blacks placed a bogus call for help and when they, the police, showed up they were taking hostage. During the time of their imprisonment by the blacks, they were castrated, had their hamstrings cut, had their penises cut off, had the muscle from their calfs pulled off the bone and out of their legs very slowly. The police tried in vane for several days to have the men released but the blacks refused. When the screaming of the officers stopped for 24hrs it was assumed they were dead but the blacks still would not surrender. Thats when the decision was made to bomb the place.
There is the story. The blacks who killed the cops deserve no honor.
This story was buried until now as back then, when it happened, there would have been a civil war in Memphis if the facts were released.

Uh sensless? Puhlease!! You must not know what really happened then I guess. Those officers ( or that officer not sure if it was 1 or 2 ) were tortured by those sick "innocent" people.

Well I guess I should have read farther. There's the true story, some of it. There was no bomb. The home was raided in the end by officers and the hostage takers were shot and killed. The standoff lasted a day and a half.

Thanks for this info.
