Nikolaus Johnson - Death Row Cop Killer on Facebook - He needs your Comments
Convicted cop-killer Nikolaus Johnson may be on death row, but he’s still finding a way to communicate with the outside world using Facebook. Although Johnson is not allowed access to the internet inside the Nashville prison he currently calls home, through Facebook he is staying in touch with his family and friends.
“Inmates don’t have access to the internet,” Tennessee Department of Correction Communications Officer Dorinda Carter said. “We don’t allow them to go on the internet and post whatever they want.

Nearly three years ago, a jury convicted Johnson of the 2004 killing of Bristol, TN police officer Mark Vance. Despite that murder conviction and subsequence death penalty sentence, Johnson has 232 Facebook friends.
