I didn’t know the Coroner’s inquest for the shooting death of Johnny Lee Perry was happening this week until I saw this tweet:
I have to admit, I’m fully triggered on several fronts. Needless to say, I’ll be attending the inquiry on Thursday to hopefully find out a few things I’ve been wondering since posting an article about Johnny 13 days before he was shot dead by Sheriff Deputies.
First off, it would be nice to know the names of the Deputies who shot him. That information has been withheld since August 29th, 2021.
Second, how was it determined that Johnny was in a mental health crisis?
After recording the footage of Johnny where he made threats toward law enforcement and admitted to strangling Sean Stevenson, I spoke with a police officer who admitted to having Johnny IN HIS CAR previous to my interaction with him on that day. The police officer even told me he thought Johnny wasn’t a threat because he was high on just marijuana.
ZOOM TOWN, BABY!
