How many more murders by cops are swept under the rug, this is an outrage and the media is not broadcasting or investigating this murder.

>Subject: Innocent Man Murdered
>Dear Friends and Family,
>I am writing to make you aware of a senseless tragedy that is becoming
>too familiar in this country. Another innocent, unarmed African
>American male was brutally murdered by so called "law enforcement".
>The man who was slain was named Kenneth B. Walker. This incident hits
>very close to home because Kenny was an extremely close friend.
>Last Wednesday evening a local sheriff's special unit targeted 4 black
>men riding in an expensive SUV as possible "drug suspects". The
>reality of the matter is that every individual in that SUV was a
graduate, as well
>as responsible citizen. These four innocent men were dragged from
>vehicle at gun point, and forced to lay on the side of a major
>Interstate like animals. Simultaneously one of the "John Wayne"
>sheriffs made a conscious decision to shoot Kenny Walker in the front
>of the head twice, with a H&K MP5 assault rifle. The coward who shot
>Kenny claimed that he made a "judgment call" because he couldn't see
>Kenny's right hand. While Kenny lie dying on the side of the road, the
>bastards knowing full well at this point that they had targeted the
>wrong vehicle, still resented the other 3 gentlemen. They place them
>in 3 separate cars and held them in 3 separate cells. Furthermore,
>Kenny was shot at 9:00pm and his family was not notified until 1:30 am.
>They didn't even get a chance to say their farewells, because he died
>before they arrived. Of course they found no guns or contraband in the
>vehicle. 6 hours later they released the other men. They gave the
>driver his keys and said, and I quote "you're free to go, by the way
>your friend is dead".
>Kenneth Walker was a loving husband, devoted father and responsible
>civic oriented individual who was involved in the local community. Not
>only had Kenny never been in trouble with law; when they pulled his
>record they couldn't even find a speeding ticket! So what it amounts
>to is that if you are a black male in this country, no matter how
>righteous, your life is subject to come down to a "judgment call". To
>add insult to injustice, this tragedy is being stonewalled and quietly
>swept under the rug by local government officials. From what we
>understand, the entire incident was caught on tape. The Sheriff's
>Department is refusing to release the tape, which is a matter of public
>record under the "Freedom of Information" Act. Columbus is a small
>town. The "Good Old Boy" network is very much alive here and the
>longer they hold the tape, the more likely it will be altered or
>disappear all together (remember the 90 seconds missing from the
>Cincinnati tape). If this had happened in a major city it would have
>gained national attention by now. This is where we need your help.
>Pass this email along to as many people as possible and contact the
>following news networks about this case. www.cnn.com; www.bet.com;
