Anarchists memorialize NOPD murder victims under NOPD's own snout

The National Day of Action Against Police Brutality comes early to the fifth district...

Who will be the next victim of our city's rampaging, murderous cops? Will it be you, or someone you love? Who will NOPD kill next? Who will they murder and then defame? You've seen the headlines, you've heard the stories; if you've lived here for any length of time, you know the deal. NOPD is a haven for thieves, rapists, child molesters, jacked-up tweaked-out psychopaths, murderers, liars, perjurers, drug dealers, pimps: the absolute scum of humanity.

They loot the evidence room to sell drugs, they run prostitution rings, they form untouchable rogue "sub-patrols" of ultra-violent, steroid-pumped jump-out boys, such as the pigs who cold-bloodedly, unprovokedly murdered Adolph Grimes III outside his grandma's house and then lied about it.

New Orleans demands accountability of its murderous police; accountability and justice. The blood of the murdered innocents cries to us from the ground. We're listening.

Meanwhile, Pres Kabacoff, the greedy QUADRILLIONAIRE who brought Wal-Mart to Tchopitoulas, who replaced the St. Thomas brick with bullshit vinyl-sided suburban claptrap, has created a grotesquerie on St. Claude. In the process of renovating the Universal Furniture building into a so-called "healing center", he invites in a fucking NOPD SUBSTATION to enjoy an indefinite stay, rent-free... a bastion of the greatest illness afflicting our city to complement the new age cornucopia. Pouring salt in the wound, this "healing center" is currently hosting a goofy Halloween event they're calling the "Jailhouse of Horrors."

OPP is no Halloween joke, no fairy tale. Even after the much-hyped revamp, it has been cited by the ACLU, Amnesty International and even the U.S. Justice Department (surely an oxymoronic agency!) for its violations of civil rights, for its ghastly brutality and savagery towards the people it imprisons.

The people of New Orleans have hated the NOPD forever. We hate the pigs, but we fear them less and less. Times are changing. This year, the National Day of Action Against Police Brutality (Oct. 22) came early to the Fifth District. We've added a bracing dash of reality to expose the true horror of the New Orleans Criminal "Justice" System: a memorial to those murdered by NOPD in the St. Claude neutral ground at St. Roch. May their memories serve as a reminder, prison and police will never be part of the solution, short-term or long-term.

There is a terrifying level of insensitivity among some New Orleanians of privilege towards the pervasive, systematic violence practiced by "law enforcement." There is an unconcern towards the routine psychological, physical, sexual, and sometimes fatal assaults police mount against poor people all day every day.

The vileness of the police is not a question of a few "bad apples;" it is a problem of an entirely toxic tree, a poison tree, rotten to the root-tips. The Police system is a disease that need to be cured for New Orleans' human ecology to survive. Don't trust NOPD. Don't talk to them. Don't call them. They're killers.

Our little gravestone is a memorial to some of those recently (publicized) New Orleanians murdered by pigs. It'll probably stay up a while, since NOPD are overwhelmingly illiterate. They'll probably think our memorial is part of the stupid, insensitive "Jailhouse of Horrors." This is the key: Riley and his boyz can barely string words together. They're stupid, they're slow, they don't understand how the world works; all they know is the trough of public weal they've been given to root through. They don't have curiosity about their surroundings; they can't conceive of resistance. They're yesterday's news.

Let's build a tomorrow WITHOUT POLICE. Do your part. Do anything; every small pebble of defiance contributes to the building avalanche.

JUSTICE FOR THE NUMBERLESS VICTIMS OF THE POLICE
JUSTICE FOR ALL VICTIMS OF STATE VIOLENCE
