Doing my part...

to get this story out there.

The short story? Police perform a 'no knock' raid on an apartment in a bad section of town in Mississippi. A young black man living in the duplex (with no record) fires at what he supposes is an intruder and ends of killing the white son of the police chief. Turns out that the young black man wasn't specified in the warrant, had no prior criminal record and lived in the apartment with his infant daughter. Please go read here for more details on the case.

This man was convicted of murder by a white jury and sentenced to death. He is on death row in Mississippi.
