The flyer encourages killing police officers as revenge for the death of Oscar Grant, the man shot to death in Oakland by a BART police officer on New Year's Day.

El Cerrito's police commander says he believes someone is trying to taunt officers.

"It wouldn't surprise me if someone made up a flyer like this just to provoke an unprofessional response from our officers," El Cerrito Police Commander Michael Regan said.

The El Cerrito chief was so concerned he has sent a warning along to other Bay Area departments.
