    Brother Slowly ... thanks for sharing this article, starting this thread.

    It appears that Kathryn Johnston, the 92 year old that was killed by Atlanta police, has been laid to rest.

    On the day Kathryn Johnston was laid to rest, the New Black Panther Party held a rally in her northwest Atlanta neighborhood.

    Demonstrators marched from Johnston's house to a nearby-by church where residents met with Atlanta police to vent their frustrations over the controversial case.

    Johnston, who family members say was 92-years-old, was killed last week after she shot and wounded three police officers. The officers were released from the hospital by the following day.

    The officers entered Johnson's northwest Atlanta home looking for drugs based on a tip from an informant. That informant has since claimed he did not buy drugs at Johnston's home. He also claimed the officers asked him to lie.


    Such a shame :(

    :heart:

    ps ... Brother Slowly ... i changed the title of this thread, as i think that's why it didn't receive any responses.
