Thumbs down Woman, 92, dies in shootout with police



ATLANTA, Georgia (AP) -- The niece of a 92-year-old woman shot to death by police said her aunt likely had reason to shoot three narcotics investigators as they stormed her house.

Police insisted the officers did everything right before entering the home Tuesday evening, despite suggestions from the woman's neighbors and relatives that it was a case of mistaken identity.

The woman, Kathryn Johnston, was the only resident in the house at the time and had lived there for about 17 years, Assistant Chief Alan Dreher said.

The officers had a legal warrant, "knocked and announced" before they forced open the door and were justified in shooting once fired upon, he said.

Sarah Dozier, the niece, told WAGA-TV that there were never drugs at the house. (Watch niece's fury at police shooting Video)

"My aunt was in good health. I'm sure she panicked when they kicked that door down," Dozier said. "There was no reason they had to go in there and shoot her down like a dog."

As the plainclothes Atlanta police officers approached the house about 7 p.m., a woman inside started shooting, striking each of them, said Officer Joe Cobb, a police spokesman.

One was hit in the arm, another in a thigh and the third in a shoulder. The officers were taken to a hospital for treatment, and all three were conscious and alert, police said.

The Rev. Markel Hutchins, a civil rights leader, said Johnston's family deserves an apology.

"Of the police brutality cases we've had, this is the most egregious because of the woman's age," Hutchins said.

Hutchins said he would try to meet with Atlanta Police Chief Richard Pennington and would also meet with lawyers.

Was it?

Are they saying that the 92 year old woman
was dealing drugs or something like that?

Also, at her age, did she know it was the cops
or did she just think someone was breaking into her home?

Definitely much much more to this story.

Re: Woman, 92, dies in shootout with police

Hell fucking yeah we should feel sorry for her!

You know why? Well three fucking cops forced their way into her home. A home that she felt was safe for her. She was defending herself from three asses who stormed into her comfort zone!! They shot her down like a dog and she was 92! Maybe she didn't hear them knocking? Maybe she had a gun next to her because she was alone in her home in the first place.

What if this was your grandma? How would you feel.

The police need to get their shit straight. If you get a warrant make sure you got the right house. This happens to many times. Common police screwing up something easy.

Sorry dear, but everyone isn't your grandma.
As well as, the article never stated what exactly
they were searching her house for as to if it were
pertaining to her, relatives, or misteaken identity.

Also, you have no idea "what" the grandma knew,
you only have what the policemen said they had said
before they entered the home. Therefore, you have no clue
as do any of us with the info. given in this article as to what
the grandmother knew.

As i said, their is much much more to this story
than this article is stating.

Re: Woman, 92, dies in shootout with police

That is a very, very unfortunate situation. There is no telling whether or not she panicked and didn't hear if they were police officers or not but the sad fact is, she fired a gun. The police had no other choice than to also fire, they also presumably didn't know whether a 92-year old innocent woman or a drug dealer was shooting at them. Unfortunate incident.

Re: Woman, 92, dies in shootout with police

ugh, i am sorry but there really needs to be more details on this

if they went through the trouble of getting a warrant ummm why not get some cop clothes? what is the reason behind trying to serve a warrant in plain clothes?

and the WTA Retards need not have a party, a woman died and three people were shot. its hardly anything to be happy or glad about.

finally, based on the little info out now this does not seem like this is a race issue. instead this is clearly a gun control issues. NO ONE in their right mind would say that things would have turned out the same if the woman did not have a gun. Once again having guns puts the elderly at greater danger.

"racism is dead, it died when MLK walked on a bridge and freed the slaves. Now we have a socialist Kenyan president who is not an American and if anyone mentions race they are a reverse racist (while racism is dead, reverse racism is alive and well.) #whattheyteachyouatfox"

Re: Woman, 92, dies in shootout with police

I apologize for calling her a bitch. The more I think about it, the more I can understand her situation. Maybe she lived in a rough neighborhood and assumed the guys were impersonating police officers. The police officers shouldnt' have come to her house at night, and they should've come in uniform.

You don't know that she knew or not?

Anyway I agree with Wiggly, it's about GUN CONTROL. But not just for the people but for the police as well. They need to get it right as they mess up to many times when it comes to something simple. I want to know how in the hell did they MISTAKEN the home?? If you are ready and packing the POLICE BETTER HAVE THE RIGHT FUCKING ADDY and PERSON! This happens to many times. Yet the cops still want to know why they were shot at? Dumbasses.
