Thank you to the person that sent this to me....awful to look at, to be sure, but no more awful than what the Johnson family has been carrying around and posting on websites for the past year.
|Left - GBI medical examiner on Jan. 12 - photo on the right was taken after autopsy and manipulated.|
Photographs of Kendrick’s body included in the unredacted case file show a swollen and disfigured face but not a face that resembles the photos purported to be Kendrick that family members and supporters have held up in view of motorists at the intersection near the Lowndes County Judicial Complex. [LINK]The fold in the forehead (picture on right), is due to the fact that his skull cap was removed during the autopsy to expose his brain for examination. I can't imagine how Jackie Johnson was able to carry this photo around and pretend it was her son's face after being "beaten". Even harder to fathom is why her attorney would allow it.

In my opinion: They started out by flipping the pic so the pooling of his blood would not appear to be the obvious reason for the disfigurement. I think whichever genius in the family decided to photo shop this probably didn't make a copy of the original and went too far in their endeavor to fabricate bruising. Little did they know, they need not have worried because there is actually a population of people out there who question nothing as long as it has a sensational headline and a self-serving cause.
Word from someone who would rather believe her lying eyes (then deletes post thinking it would go away, embarrassed?):
@VP_Renewsit Asshole if pic u're floating is authentic, good. It's even more telling. Face cut& bruised all over @Frederic_Rosen @rstewart47
