Memorial Portrait poster of James Rhodes, killed by Cleveland police on February 19, 1997
"James was a student at Tri-C Metro. He took a bus home and he stopped at a corner store at about 108th and St. Clair. He came out of the store and the police start chasing him and he ran into an apartment doorway, pull out a gun, and kill him, and the police claim they thought he had a gun in his book bag."--Bill Swain
