Disbar Rudy Giuliani – Reinstate Alton Maddox!

Alton Maddox has been barred from practicing law since 1990.

Rudy Giuliani may finally be kicked out of the courts. He’s been busy there trying to get Black votes thrown out in cities like Detroit and Philadelphia.

The New York State Bar Association is considering whether to disbar the Trump mouthpiece. If Giuliani is disbarred he won’t be able to be a lawyer anymore.

The former New York City mayor fired up the racist mob in front of the White House on Jan. 6 by declaring he wanted a “trial by combat.” Thousands of bigots obliged by marching on the Capitol to overturn the presidential election.

Hundreds were allowed to invade the Capitol. A noose was set up outside. Five people died as a result of the assault.

These are all good reasons for Giuliani to be disbarred immediately and put on trial for inciting violence. This racist should have been prevented from being a lawyer decades ago.

Decades of racist violence

On Sept. 18, 1992, Giuliani was the ringmaster when 10,000 New York City cops rioted against David Dinkins, the city’s first and so far only Black mayor.

City Council member Una Clarke and other Black people were called a racist name by police. After the rally, cops broke the jaw of Black youth Ywunas Mohamed on the “J” subway train. 

Guiliani’s eight years as mayor were eight years of police terror. An unarmed African immigrant, Amadou Diallo, was killed when police fired 44 shots at him on Feb. 4, 1999.

Unarmed Patrick Dorismond, a father of two children, was killed on March 16, 2000, for saying “no” to an undercover cop trying to sell him drugs. Guiliani’s cops attacked Dorismond’s funeral in Brooklyn’s Haitian community and arrested 27 people. 

There was economic terror as well. Giuliani bragged that he kicked 640,000 poor people off welfare programs. 

Giuliani should have been disbarred 36 years ago for trying to frame up the New York 8+ as a federal district attorney in 1985. 

Field Marshall Coltrane Chimurenga, Viola Plummer, Ruth Carter, Omowale Clay, Yvette Kelley, Jose Rios, Robert Taylor and Roger Wareham faced fantastic charges of conspiring to rob banks and Brinks’ trucks, and to stage jailbreaks. Even their political activity was claimed to be violating the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act.

The attempted frameup was part of the Reagan administration’s drive to crush all liberation movements. Because of their courageous resistance, all of the defendants were acquitted of conspiracy charges.   

Maddox: Fighter for oppressed

While Giuliani was made mayor and lionized by the capitalist media, Attorney-at-War Alton Maddox has been prevented from practicing law for 30 years. The Black lawyer was driven from the courtroom because he fought unconditionally for justice. 

Maddox demanded a special prosecutor in the racist murder of Michael Griffith in 1986. The Black man was chased by a white gang in the Howard Beach section of Queens, N.Y. Maddox prevented a coverup.

Alton Maddox had earlier represented the family of Michael Stewart. The 25-year-old Black artist was beaten to death by a gang of cops after being arrested in a Manhattan subway station. 

Then a federal prosecutor, Giuliani refused to press federal civil rights charges against the police who killed Stewart.

It was Maddox’s courageous defense of Tawana Brawley that led to the racist courts suspending the Attorney-at-War. On Nov. 28, 1987, the Black woman was gang raped by six white men in Wappingers Falls, N.Y., a northern suburb of New York City.

Tawana Brawley was a 15-year-old high school student at the time. Her attackers were part of the local power structure.

One of them was a Dutchess County police officer, Harry Crist. He matched the description that Brawley gave of one of her rapists in a Nov. 30, 1987, interview.

Within 48 hours Crist was dead. The authorities claim he committed suicide. 

If this was true, why did Crist take his own life? Was it out of fear of being exposed? Or was Crist murdered to eliminate a witness?

The pathologist who examined Crist’s body ― Dr. Alexander Aplasca ― listed Crist’s death as a homicide. Aplasca never found a self-inflicted wound.

Nor was he shown the weapon that Crist allegedly used or even any crime scene photos. The autopsy report was suppressed for 11 years. 

Attacking Tawana Brawley and her lawyer

Dr. Aplasca was never called to the grand jury conducted by New York state Attorney General Robert Abrams. Instead of seeking justice for Tawana Brawley, the vile corporate media claimed the Black teenager was lying.

A coverup has been orchestrated for a third of a century. Here’s a link to the real facts on this racist atrocity.

Besides slandering Tawana Brawley, the capitalist power structure sought to silence Alton Maddox. He was suspended from practicing law in 1990.

It’s outrageous that the courageous Black lawyer has been kept out of the courtroom. He’s needed there to fight for the people.
