Demonstrations inspired by the shooting deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile faded briefly after last week’s shooting of five Dallas police officers during one such protest, but were back in force over the weekend.

Even while Dallas police were honoring their fallen at a candlelight vigil Monday evening, protesters were back on the streets — literally — in cities like Atlanta.

Protests continued into the night as demonstrators stationed themselves across the street from the governor’s mansion, apparently not knowing or caring that the governor is currently in Germany and is probably sleeping just fine.

While even President Obama mentioned Sterling and Castile by name last week, there were other deaths, which some are still keeping in their tally. Delrawn Small was fatally shot in New York by an off-duty police officer during a road rage incident, although Small’s name was dropped as a hashtag pretty quickly by most.

And then there was Piedmont Park. Atlanta is a curious case, as many still assume an unidentified black man found hanged in Piedmont Park was lynched by members of the KKK, who they say were in the park handing out flyers during a rally the previous day.

Salon isn’t quite mainstream, but the site did jump in early, recounting much of the police report but also noting that there were “lingering questions,” none of which happened to be based on factual evidence.

On Saturday, however, the Los Angeles Times covered the incident, repeating much of what had already been announced:

“There did not appear to be any struggle or any foul play,” a report stated. “The scene and the body seemed to coincide with a suicide.”

At a Friday news conference, Mayor [Kasim] Reed cautioned those spreading social media rumors of Klan involvement at Piedmont Park the night before the hanging. “I’ve been following Internet, social media chatter, and they’re just saying a bunch of things that are not true,” he told reporters. “We have reviewed our video cameras, we have spoken to a number of individuals, and we have not found any evidence that the KKK was in Piedmont Park distributing materials.”

“Still,” added writer Jenny Jarvie, “many in Atlanta – a city with a black mayor and a black police chief – admit they remain suspicious.” Even while confronting rumors, Reed announced in a statement that he was referring the case to the FBI, although it’s unlikely anyone who suspects Atlanta’s police of covering up a lynching will be satisfied with the FBI’s findings.

It would seem so, yes.
