"On that day the
police dispatcher sent out a call-about a robbery at the Gary National Bank. The first cop
on the scene was shot.
Thereafter, a citywide dragnet took place and about 10 Black (New

All police reports of these arrests were either withheld or destroyed.
In this atmosphere of class conflict, i was stopped in a
Black neighbor-hood on the West Side of Gary by a white cop. When i
demanded to know what was going on, the racist cop said,
"Nigger, you shot a cop!" i vehemently denied the accusations only to

you sure as hell know who did." Then, he said "Well, i'm not sure if
you did or not, but you'll do."
