Al Sharpton was in the ATL calling for Congressional hearings on the shooting of Kathryn Johnston:
“Something stinks in this case. And something stinks to high heaven,” Sharpton said. “In fact, it smells so bad, I smelled it in New York and came to Atlanta this morning.”
Sharpton condemned “this new sense of police recklessness, whether it is a 88-year-old mother here in Atlanta, with questionable circumstances that led to the warrant that gave them entry into her home, or whether it is over 50 bullets shot at three unarmed men in Queens.”
Sharpton made no mention of the shootings in DeKalb, where officers have been involved in 14 shootings this year with 8 fatalities.
