Kathryn Johnston

Jason points to an article by Radley Balko remembering the anniversary of the death of Kathryn Johnston.
Ms. Johnston didn't actually wound any of the officers. They were wounded by fragments of ricochet from their own storm of bullets. And there was no marijuana. Once they realized their mistake, the officers handcuffed Ms. Johnston and left her to bleed and die on the floor of her own home while they planted marijuana in her basement.

As I said in the comments, I can't think about this tragedy without becoming incredibly sad.

There is no law, order or justice in "no-knock warrants". None.
