A start, indeed...

...but just a start:

The city of Atlanta will pay $4.9 million to the family of Kathryn Johnston, a 92-year-old woman killed in a botched November 2006 drug raid, Mayor Kasim Reed's office announced Monday.
As Tam says, though, that doesn't bring Kathryn Johnston back. I am sure that nor is it likely to make TPTB in Atlanta or anywhere else start lobbying at least to rethink the whole War On Some Drugs nonsense and its deleterious effects, and that's just a damn shame.
