An informant who narcotics officers say led them to the house where an elderly woman was killed in a drug raid is accusing the officers of asking him to lie about his role, Atlanta police Chief Richard Pennington said Monday.
“The informant said he had no knowledge of going into that house and purchasing drugs,” [Atlanta Police Chief Richard] Pennington said. “We don’t know if he’s telling the truth.”
I think it is prudent to withhold judgment as we don’t know if this is the truth. However–well I shall withhold comment too.
Also; worth pondering is how Mayor Franklin is going to respond. She could save perhaps a
modicum iota of respectability by dealing with this execration well.
NB: I wonder, just by looking at this, if John Eaves will have any co-operation in his first two years from Republicans, either on his commission, or in the General Assembly
