Atlanta Police Chief Richard Pennington has put the entire narcotics unit on administrative leave while several agencies conduct an investigation about the shooting of an 88-year-old woman.

Officials said the FBI will lead an investigation into the fatal shooting of an elderly Atlanta woman during a drug raid last week. The announcement was made by Pennington at a news conference Monday, where he was joined by officials from the FBI, the US Attorney’s Office, the GBI and District Attorney Paul Howard.

    What? The authorities lied to cover their asses? I’m shocked. Shocked I tell you!

    Someone I was arguing with after this broke was claiming there wasn’t negligence. At the time, I said the cops on the scene probably weren’t negligent, but that someone in the police department or the judge who issued the warrant must have been negligent.

    With news like this, it seems to jump from negligence to outright malfeasance.
