About 2 hours ago, a few hundred police officers on foot, on horses, on motorcycles, in cars, and in riot gear, moved in and arrested 40+ protesters
as about 800 people observed, taunted, and video documented what was happening.
I can attest to a complete over reaction by the city of atlanta. There is no need for blocking off streets in a 5 block radius and having 2
helicopters circling. There's no need for 100 riot police to march around a park holding a peaceful protest.
Senator Vince Ford was one of those arrested, as well as former city councilman Derrick Boazman. There were some isolated incidents of arrests outside
of the park and there were some people who were arrested with a clear show of excessive force but one thing is for sure. THIS IS BECOMING A POLICE
STATE. THOSE WHO OPPOSE THIS MOVEMENT CAN DENY THAT, BUT THEY WILL MEET BILLY THE CLUB ONE DAY TOO.
Woodruff Park will be RE-OCCUPIED by tomorrow morning.
I'm compiling my videos now.. This movement will continue..
