Berkeley Barb (1969)
Brother James Rector died 10:12 Monday night in a Berkeley hospital—murdered by the Alameda County pigs in the name of justice, martyred in the cause of PEOPLE’S PARK.
James Rector was shot in the back on Bloody Thursday, from 30 feet with a .12 gauge magnum shotgun loaded with double ought buckshots. A chunk of police lead the size of a .38 slug lodged in his heart, causing death.
This government has turned its weapons of war upon its own children, its own students, and has gunned them down indiscriminately in a street protest.
The police version of the shooting states that Rector was on a fire escape of Granma Bookstore ready to heave a chunk of concrete at the cops in the street. Police fired upon him they say, and he fell to the pavement below.
At least three witnesses termed this description, “A LIE.”
