Condemn the Police Murder of
Adolph Grimes lll

January 4, 2009-New Orleans
The New Orleans police have murdered another African American youth. Around 3:00 a.m. Friday morning, an elite squad of un-named plainclothes officers shot and killed 22 year-old Adolph Grimes lll. Mr. Grimes was waiting in his car for his cousin when he was assaulted by the police.
When an independent examination was done on the scene of the crime, (the 1700 block of Governor Nichols St., and not the 1600 block of Governor Nichols St. as alleged by the police and the media), the examination disclosed that the shooting could not have happened the way the authorities claimed.
Several tales have emerged from the NOPD and the coroner's office as to the 'facts' of what happened. Police Chief Warren Riley has a tale. The un-named police officers have a different tale. Coroner Frank Minyard has his tale. All of these tales are designed to demonize young Adolph Grimes lll. These tales are to suggest that Adolph was a 'thug', that he was probably doing something illegal, and that the police were justified in killing him. The standard line that the young man "fired at officers" resulting in officers "forced" to kill the suspect is being repeated. This, of course, is a lie. A lie repeated endlessly by the bourgeois media acting as spokespersons for the police.
The state led by Chief Warren Riley claims a complete and thorough investigation will be conducted. But how can that be?
'How can the wolves with blood all around their mouth conduct a genuine and honest investigation of the slaughter of the chicken?'
The murder of Adolph Grimes lll, like that of Ronald Madison and James Brisette on the Danziger Bridge, Jennard Smith, Vergil Braud, Corey Horton, Adolph Archie, Willie Daniels, Gerald Glover, Matthew Cohea, Sherry Singleton, James Billy, etc. is another blatant display of the murderous activity of the NOPD.
Enough is enough! Let us all join together and combat this police terror and protest this savage murder of Adolph Grimes lll. Join us in our protest. On your jobs, in your school and in your neighborhoods, rally your co-workers, neighbors and friends to join with you in protest. We must demand justice for Adolph Grimes and all victims of police murder.

Justice for Adolph Grimes lll !
Jail the Police Murderers Now!
End the State Cover-Up!
