Cops Have ‘Person Of Interest’ In Atlanta Black Pride Organizer Durand Robinson’s Murder

The August murder of Durand Robinson, the Atlanta Black Pride organizer and Traxx bar co-owner who was shot to death in the middle of a downtown street, has thus far gone unsolved, with only theories about a carjacking gone bad. But Atlanta police announced they have identified a person of interest — somebody Robinson had helped out in the past — although the person is not in custody. That, and they have a cooperating witness, who's suddenly dropped out of contact, and who the police would like to reconnect with. [video via]

This past Spring Karl led our successful efforts in Nebraska to win Senator Ben Nelson’s Yes vote on “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” repeal in the Senate Armed Services Committee.  In the fall, Karl worked with the southern Delaware office of the Democratic Party’s coordinated campaign office that helped assure that Delaware not send a Christine O’Donnell to the U.S. Senate.  Karl is now in Massachusetts where he is leading efforts to win Senator Scott Brown’s vote on “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”  Last year Karl helped Garden State Equality organize around marriage equality and he was also in Gainesville, Florida where he helped assure that that city’s non-discrimination law was affirmed at the ballot box.
