The tragic and unthinkable story of young PFC Lavena Johnson still rings loudly in a call for justice seven years after her death. The Department of Defense ruled her death a suicide, although numerous facts in the case defies that possiblity. Her skull showed a bullet which entered in a manner inconsistent with suicide, acid burns to her genitals, a black eye and loose teeth were also observed by her father and medical examiner during her autopsy. After much stonewalling of access to Lavena's medical records by the Dept. of Defense, the Johnsons managed to get some doors to open and her case attracted worldwide attention. To date, no formal permission to investigate her case as a rape-murder has been given. Join us tonight as we speak with LaQuay Juel, a citizen who began a nationwide petition in Lavena Johnson's honor to appeal to the powers that be, and Sky Grid, host of the Grid10 radio show, as we all share our thoughts on the case and spread more awareness to a call for action against discrimnation, rape and bullying in the military in wake of this tragedy. Both Lavena and her family need some much needed closure and justice in this matter.
