Demand Justice for PFC LaVena Johnson

LaVena Johnson

By all accounts, LaVena Johnson was a happy, healthy, strong young woman when she joined the military as a supply specialist.

A few months later she was dead in Iraq, a victim of a non-combat gunshot wound to the head. As bad as the news of the death of their daughter, was the discovery of substantial evidence that she was raped, murdered, and her body twice set afire in a failed attempt to cover up the crimes. The United States Army is refusing to re-open the hitherto lackluster and barely cursory investigation into LaVena’s death, and in the face of this mounting evidence, their refusal is beginning to reek of a cover-up.

LaVena’s story can be read at LaVenaJohnson.com , and there is an online petition to the Armed Services Committees in Congress that you can sign there to demand that the Army re-open the investigation and actually put some effort into it this time.

Please take a few moments to read LaVena’s tragic and compelling story, and ask Congress to hold the Army to the standard which we expect of those in charge of looking out for our women and men in uniform.

    Damn, this is screwed up. I wish we lived in a world where a cover-up in the government or military was actually surprising, but these days…

    Just what are you doing pointing out the supposed wrong doings of our brave citizens in the armed forces. Are you try to help the islamofacsists to win their jihad against FREEDOM.

    (I know, the snark factor is in the red here.)

    My fear is thar everything is just as screwed up as the Pat Tillman case.

  4. JanieBelle says:

    Indeed. The cover-up that seems almost glaringly self-evident here is very reminiscent of the Tillman case, and those comparisons have been made in various places on the web.
