On November 29, 2022 the state of Missouri will murder Kevin Johnson, a young man who suffered lifelong trauma and who experienced as well as witnessed all manner of abuse, violence, and tragedy. At the age of 19 – after witnessing the sudden and tragic death of his beloved youngest brother earlier in the day and having endured a life of suffering – Kevin didn’t have the mental and emotional tools to process the grief and lashed out by killing a police officer, who he believed were culpable in the death of his 12 year old brother. Kevin is remorseful for his actions as a traumatized teen and has spent these last 17 years healing, maturing, and becoming a good father to his daughter, who recently made him a grandfather for the first time.
Kevin deserves every ounce of mercy, compassion, empathy, support, and recognition of his humanity.
