I have finally gotten around to adding Rev. Jonathan Ayers to the Drug War Victims page — he definitely needed to be there.
A potentially interesting new development
New developments in the shooting death of Pastor Jonathon Ayers … the officer that delivered the fatal shot did not have arrest powers.
According to Channel Two Action news, it all stems from the shooting death of pastor Johnathon Ayers during a botched drug raid in North Georgia last year. A lawsuit filed by the pastor’s widow claims the officer who shot the pastor, Billy Shane Harrison, was not acting legally because of a lack of mandated firearm training.
In the lawsuit, it alleges the grand jury who investigated the shooting did not have all the facts and Harrison should now be held criminally liable.
The GBI [Georgia Bureau of Investigation] has confirmed that Harrison did not have authority to make an arrest.
A lot more in this video
So they had an officer, who had not completed mandated firearm training and who did not have an authority to make an arrest, armed and working undercover on a drug case?
And this makes the grand jury investigation that let the cops off the hook look pretty bad.
Side note: Does anyone know how old Jonathan was?
