When cops go bad

Atlanta had a drug raid recently that really went bad.
On Nov. 21, plainclothes narcotics officers burst into Johnston's home, using a no-knock warrant they obtained by falsely telling a judge an informant had confirmed drug dealing there, according to government prosecutors. Johnston, 92, was killed during the raid in a hail of nearly 40 police gunshots.

The agitator is following the story closely.

So far it seems that two of the cops involved in the shooting have plead guilty to manslaughter and other crimes, one more cop at the scene has been charged with related crimes (so far he's pleading not guilty) and now 3 have been suspended for acts related to false statements in getting the warrant and/or covering up the killing.

Deep, deep problems in the Atlanta police department.
