Memorial Portrait Poster of Guy Wills, killed by Cleveland police on November 11, 2002

"He came from the funeral director's family. They were always good to the people on the bottom, poor people's funerals. They were good people. He was in the business himself. One Saturday afternoon he went out to Randall Park Mall and allegedly he was walking out of the mall with a fur coat. An off duty Cleveland policeman grabbed him and said he stole the coat. The cop proceeded to turn him upside down and bang his head against a stone floor. It was so horrible and so vivid that several people during the trial said they felt the floor shake from his head being hit on the floor. It was clear this cop had no regard for him, his life. Another example of kill rather than…he could've arrested him. The family really protested and continued to protest for him and for other people that lost their lives to police murder."--Bill Swain
