Well, y’all, it looks like they’ve taken another one of us down by shooting us in the back. They must have been trying to send a clear message because they shot Adolph Grimes III 12 times in the back:
The family of Adolph Grimes III, who was visiting his grandmother in New Orleans on New Year’s Eve when he was shot to death by police, is demanding answers.
The Orleans Parish coroner said Grimes was shot 14 times, including 12 times in the back.
Grimes, who relocated to Texas with his fiancée, Shae Whitfield, after Hurricane Katrina, couldn’t wait to get home with their 17-month-old son, Chris, and ring in the new year with friends and family.
“He made it at 12 o’clock exact, with a second to spare,” said his father, Adolph Grimes Jr.
Three hours later, Grimes walked out of the house and was in a car waiting for his cousin, according to family members, when nine plainclothes officers — part of an undercover narcotics task force driving around New Orleans on New Year’s Eve — surrounded Grimes’ vehicle.
Shots rang out; New Orleans Police Superintendent Warren Riley said Grimes shot at police first.
The Grimes family disagrees, saying police executed a loved one as he ran for his life.
“It was like someone was a murderer, and they finally caught him,” said Grimes’ mother, Patricia. “I ain’t ever seen anything like this. And the worst part about it was I had to wait for the 5 o’clock news to find out my son was murdered.”
Shortly after finding out about the death, the family contacted the FBI to investigate alleged wrongdoing by police officers in the shooting.
What the f*ck, Bossip folk? They don’t even shoot wild animals 12 times in the back, but a black human gets treated this way? If you are a black male, get your game face on; it’s hunting season and you’re the prey. SMDH
