A few hours after ringing in 2009, Adolph Grimes III, 22, was dead after being shot 14 times; 12 in the back by nine plainclothes officers in New Orleans. His family is demanding answers, according to CNN. Grimes was sitting in his car, waiting for his cousin when officers surrounded his vehicle. He was licensed to carry a gun and had no criminal record as the officers looked for drug perpetrators. His family wants the involved police charged and has enlisted the FBI to investigate.—CJ
