We know the truth on this crime wave. Atlanta Mayor Keisha Bottoms started this fiasco when she allowed the looting and rioting over a police shooting. She had the chief step down, arrested the policeman without any investigation including the GBI . Then she allowed the rioters to stay at the burnt out Wendy’s blocking streets. Then the 8 year old girl is killed by her lawful protesters. Her family is suing the city for millions and they should. Now the civil service has given the policeman his job back and rightly so. Now he is suing the city. The police department is so demoralized they are all leaving. When you don’t stand with your police and give into trying to make your own political agenda. Hopefully Buckhead will annex out. The entire fiasco started with Mayor Bottoms. So just say the truth.
