uptown-kendrick-johnsonThe U.S. Department of Justice announced that it will not conduct a civil rights investigation into the death of Kendrick Johnson, 17, who was found dead in a rolled-up gym mat in his high school.  The Justice Department’s criminal division is aware of concerns about Kendrick’s death, but after reviewing the investigative file, it determined there is not “sufficient indication of a civil rights violation to authorize a civil rights investigation,” according to the agency’s spokesperson.  “We have discussed this matter with U.S. Attorney Moore, and his office is continuing to monitor and evaluate this matter, including the second autopsy report,” the spokesperson added.
