Early this morning Bash Back! News received this communique:

Bash Back! Memphis Kicks Off Avenge Duanna Campaign

In the evening hours of Saturday, November 22nd, anonymous
BB! Memphis operatives called in to request that a hearse,
a casket, and a dozen pink daisies be delivered to Officer
Bridges McRae, Duanna Johnson's attacker, as he dressed for
church on Sunday.

A note attached to the flowers read;

"See you soon...
Officer Bridges McRae is responsible for beating Duanna
Johnson with handcuffs and fists just months prior to her
"mysterious" death. It is clear that McRae and others in
the notoriously anti-trans/queer Memphis Police Department
had it out for Duanna. Bash Back! News, clandestine queers,
and above ground activists know that the MPD murdered Duanna.
Anyone who denies this fact is living the bubbble that Bash
Back! is dedicated to bursting.

A little birdy told us:

The flowers arrived first. McRae seemed confused and slightly angry after the note was read, and took the flowers inside. Within 45 minutes, the hearse and casket arrived. The hearse driver knocked on the door to alert McRae his casket had arrived as two henchmen began preparing the casket to be carried inside.

When McRae answered the door, he was clearly very angry and began threatening physical violence towards the hearse driver.
