Police Kill 92 Year Old Grandmother In Her Home, Then Plant Marijuana To Make It Appear Justified

tagged with:

While it's not at all unusual to hear reports of police officers conducting lethal predawn raids on the homes of entirely innocent Americans, this recent case seems particularly egregious because of the fact that the police actually confessed to planting three bags of marijuana in the house after murdering a frightened 92 year old woman in her bedroom (as if finding three small bags of dried flowers should excuse their lethal actions).

Apparently because they were willing to admit they planted evidence in an effort to cover their crimes the guiltiest of the guilty parties will only be serving about 10 years in jail, if that.

From Marijuana Policy Project - News:

ATLANTA %u2014 Two police officers pleaded guilty Thursday to manslaughter in the shooting death of a 92-year-old woman during a botched drug raid last fall. A third officer still faces charges.
