Back to Alabama

Sunday, December 24th, 2006

Remember Kenneth Jamar? He was the Alabama man who almost suffered Kathryn Johnston’s fate last June. Partially deaf, and suffering from gout and two hear attacks, he met the raiding federal-local SWAT team with a pistol. The SWAT team opened fire, and nearly killed him. An internal investigation cleared the police of any wrongdoing, despite the fact that address on the warrant was wrong, and that police had circled the wrong house on a satellite photo. They were looking for his nephew. Not on murder or rape charges. But on drug distribution charges. The nephew actually watched the raid from his father’s home. After they carted Jamar off in an ambulance, police arrested the nephew without incident.

Well, Jamar is now suing. Good for him. I hope he wins an obscene amount of money.
