As a youth, Hampton was gifted both in the classroom and on the athletic field, and strongly desired to play center field for the New York Yankees. He graduated from Proviso East High School with honors in He planned to become more familiar with the legal system, to use it as a defense against police.
He and fellow Black Panthers would follow police, watching out for police brutalityand used this knowledge of law as a defense. In his capacity as an NAACP youth organizer, Hampton began to demonstrate his natural leadership abilities; from a community of 27, he was able to muster a youth group members strong.
He worked to get more and better recreational facilities established in the neighborhoods, and to improve educational resources for Maywood's impoverished black community. Through his involvement with the NAACP, Hampton hoped to achieve social change through nonviolent activism and community organizing.
Hampton was quickly attracted to the Black Panthers' approach, which was based on a ten-point program that integrated black self-determination on the basis of Maoism. Over the next year, Hampton and his associates made a number of significant achievements in Chicago.
Perhaps his most important accomplishment was his brokering of Chapter 1 who is a leader nonaggression pact between Chicago's most powerful street gangs.
Emphasizing that racial and ethnic conflict between gangs would only keep its members entrenched in povertyHampton strove to forge a class-consciousmulti-racial alliance between the BPP, the Young Patriots Organizationand the Young Lords under the leadership of Jose Cha Cha Jimenez.
Fred Hampton met the Young Lords in the Chicago Lincoln Park Neighborhood, the day after the Young Lords were in the news after they had occupied a police community workshop meeting, held on the second floor hall of the Chicago 18th District Police Station.

Hoover fired back a memo implying that the career prospects of the agent were directly related to his supplying evidence to support Hoover's view that the BPP was "a violence-prone organization seeking to overthrow the Government by revolutionary means".
The Panthers became effectively isolated from their power base in the ghettoso the FBI went to work to undermine its ties with other radical organizations.
O'Neal was instructed to "create a rift" between the Party and SDS, whose Chicago headquarters was only blocks from that of the Panthers. The Bureau released a batch of racist cartoons in the Panthers' name,  aimed at alienating white activists, and launched a disinformation program to forestall the realization of the Rainbow Coalition but nevertheless it was formed with an alliance of the Young Patriots and Young Lords.
O'Neal reported to his superiors that much of the Panthers' "provocative" stockpile of arms was being stored there and drew them a map of the layout of the apartment.
Shortly thereafter, he was to assume the position of Chief of Staff and major spokesman. Fred Hampton was quickly moving up the ranks in the Black Panther Party, and his talent as a political organizer was described as remarkable.

An augmented, man team of the SAO—Special Prosecutions Unit—was organized for a pre-dawn raid armed with a warrant for illegal weapons. Upon arrival, they were met by O'Neal, who had prepared a late dinner, which the group ate around midnight. O'Neal had slipped the barbiturate sleep agent, secobarbitolinto a drink that Hampton consumed during the dinner, in order to sedate Hampton so he would not awaken during the subsequent raid.
O'Neal left at this point, and, at about 1: An FBI chemist would later fail to find similar traces, but Berman stood by her findings.it is what leaders do when they are in a leadership role-concerned with how leaders act toward others in various situations task behaviors used by leaders to get the job done (prepares agenda for a meeting).
