Kathryn Johnston: remember her name. Died at age 92. Survived the Great Depression, two World Wars, Jim Crow, and more. But she couldn’t survive corrupt  and incompetent police. I’ve included information about her shooting below, but if you want the details, with citations, click here. It’s worth it. It’s truly unbelievable. The level of incompetence and corruption is in this story is simple amazing. You know that I try to keep things pretty positive on this blog, there’s so much negativity around the web. But all good people, regardless of your skin color or ethnic or racial background, need to be thoughtful, concerned, and actionable about foolishness like this.
Kathryn Johnston (June 26, 1914 – November 21, 2006)[1] was an elderly Atlanta, Georgia, woman who was shot by undercover police officers in her home on Neal Street in northwest Atlanta on November 21, 2006, where she had lived for 17 years. Three officers had entered her home in what was later described as a ‘botched’ drug raid.[2][3][4] Officers cut off burglar bars and broke down her door using a no-knock warrant.[5] Police said Johnston fired at them and they fired in response; she fired one shot out the door over the officers’ heads and they fired 39 shots, five or six of which hit her.[3][6] None of the officers were injured by her gunfire, but Johnston was killed by the officers. Police injuries were later attributed to “friendly fire” from each other’s weapons.[2][3][6]
One of the officers planted marijuana in Johnston’s house after the shooting.[7][8] Later investigations found that the paperwork stating that drugs present at Johnston’s house, which had been the basis for the raid, had been falsified.[3] The officers later admitted to having lied when they submitted cocaine as evidence claiming that they had bought it at Johnston’s house.[7] Three officers were tried for manslaughter and other charges surrounding falsification and were sentenced to ten, six, and five years.[3]

Never forget. Always remember.

My lil cousin (16yrs old) would rather marathon watch Zoey 2.0 on teen nick then hear me talk about Black History before slavery. He tells me what he knows from school about Black history starts at slavery. I asked him “did our history begin at slavery” this fool said “basically”.
I feel so hurt.
