Tragic news

News sources in Memphis have confirmed this morning that Duanna Johnson is the victim of an execution-style murder overnight. Duanna was also the victim of police brutality at the Shelby County Justice Center last February. Her story received international attention and moved the community and TEP to call for reform of the Memphis Police Department and Shelby County Sheriff's Department.

My thoughts and prayers go to Johnson's family and friends.
