    At the modern intersection of Islamophobia and the Black Lives Matter movement resides Jamil Al-Amin , the now forgotten civil rights activist and revolutionary leader who, 16 years ago this year, was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of Fulton County, Ga., Sheriff's Deputy Ricky Leon Kinchen and the wounding of his partner, then-Sheriff's Deputy Aldranon English, during a March 2000 gunfight . On the night of March 16, 2000, Deputies Kinchen and English were serving a warrant for the arrest of Al-Amin for missing a court hearing regarding a traffic stop when they were engaged in a gun battle outside Al-Amin's grocery store in the West End neighborhood of Atlanta.
