MORE UGLY DEVELOPMENTS IN THE KATHRYN JOHNSTON SHOOTING: This wasn’t the first incident, and the response of local officials is unimpressive:

You’d think that everyone in the chain of command in Atlanta would be looking for ways to prevent more botched raids and more unnecessary violence. Nope. It’s all ass-covering and buck-passing. . . . No question these cops were particularly dirty. But this is a systemic problem driven by bad policy. And if you don’t fix it, Mr. Fowler, you’re going to have more dead innocents, more dead nonviolent offenders, and more dead cops.

Meanwhile–and I really can’t believe this–the officers who killed Kathryn Johnston are worried about their pensions.

They ought to be worried about a lot more than that.
