{Police with a warrant searched [William Depperman]’s house last night and found “thousands of posters and subversive literature,” Sgt. Joseph Pollini of the Major Case Squad said. Depperman complained that the authorities broke down his front door to execute the warrant.}

Depperman could face up to four years in jail if convicted of an offense he says he did not commit. After a three-week investigation by the police department’s elite Major Case Squad, he was seized for allegedly slapping posters reading:”AIDS IS GERM WARFARE BY U.S. GOV’T” on a downtown wall. Depperman, who has been caught postering before, says this time the police set him up.

The latest poster put out by William Depperman’s United Front Against Racism and Capitalism-Imperialism charges that AIDS viruses are genetically engineered, artificial organisms. Depperman says he bases the conclusion on his own research over 9 1/2 months and cites mainstream scientific references – to back up some points, not the central thesis. . . .
