Bull Connor (July 11th, 1897 – March 10th, 1973) was a militant police commissioner during the Civil Rights Movement. He was known for his violent and racist counter protests where he aimed fire at the activists.
Known for his violent counter protests, Connor's attacks in Birmingham, Alabama brought him infamy and surprisingly lead to hostility towards segregation. The worst things that he did was use dogs to fight and attacked some kids. Connor's evil and inexcusable actions were exploited on national television across the United States leading to national outrage towards the city of Birmingham and the state of Alabama. In response, the city fired Connor as their police commissioner.
Bull Connor died of a stroke on March 10, 1973.
