Communiqué from an Ex-Cop
communiqué from an ex-cop

A heavily annotated edition of LAPD killer cop Christopher Dorner’s final statement to the world. Copious footnotes provide extensive historical context for Dorner’s grievances with, and criticisms of, the Los Angeles Police Department. From the rigged internal tribunals to the racket of police overtime to the invention of “suicide by cop” by the university-law enforcement complex, this zine discards the “rambling manifesto” frame advanced by the media and sincerely takes up Dorner’s challenge to journalists to investigate his allegations of an institution rife with corruption, racism, and brutality. 94 pp.

A Brief History of the 23rd Precinct
a brief history of the 23rd precinct

For the 45th anniversary of the East Harlem riots/rebellion. 120 pp.

“We walked off together up to Third Avenue and it was already starting to happen. Everywhere we looked were policemen. I saw a bottle thrown out of a window. It looked like a star and when it hit the street, it made a long path of bright yellow fire, a Molotov cocktail. Then I saw another, and another, and intermingling with its bright light were defined screams and crystal sounds of what seemed to be thousands of bottles being smashed in.... I saw the running of the crowds in and out of the blocks and blocks beyond, and each time they came back on Third Avenue, more were added. Just then, more Molotov cocktails were thrown out of windows and the sounds of smashing bottles were like weird sounds of a street symphony. It reminded me of when, as a young boy, I had read Dante’s description of the Inferno.”

Rules for Picketing
RULES FOR PICKETING

The disobedient strike begins with an unruly picket line.

Rules for Picketing was distributed at official union rallies and events during the ATU 1181 school bus drivers’ strike in New York City in 2013. It collects real flyers made by various unions intended to stifle militancy among their own striking rank-and-file members: internal guidelines dictating long lists of increasingly absurd and condescending “rules” to be obeyed on the picket line. 26 pp.
