Atlanta At Risk Of Losing It’s Wealthiest Neighborhood Over Crime Wave, “Finished As A City”
Things have really gotten bad in Atlanta since the whole George Floyd incident last year.
The whole thing happened in Minneapolis, but since Atlanta is a predominantly black city, BȽM has taken it upon themselves to destroy their own community there as well.
This really makes no sense at all, does it? What sense does it make for a city that has one of the highest populations of black people to destroy their own hometown which in turn hurts the black community?
You know as well as I do that it doesn’t make logical sense, but that’s because they don’t think using logic, they think using what other people say about things and how that makes them feel. Who cares about facts and consequences anyway, right?
Now, Atlanta, which is known for having some very nice neighborhoods, is on the verge of losing one of them. If you’re familiar with Atlanta at all, then you probably realize that I’m talking about Buckhead.
So what’s actually happening is that the residents of Buckhead have petitioned to secede from being a part of Atlanta and to form their own city.
Buckhead Exploratory Committee chairman Bill White said:
“The mayor and the city council have been making bad decisions, so at what point does anyone with a brain say, ‘Enough?’ If crime is out of control and you are doing nothing about it, you are finished as a city.”
“I think ours is down ten-fold,” Atlanta Mayor Keisha Bottoms told CNN anchor Chris Cuomo in regard to Atlanta PD’s department morale. “This has been a very tough few weeks in Atlanta and with the tragedy of Mr. Brooks, and then on top of that the excessive force charges that were brought against the officers involved with the college students, there’s a lot happening in our city, and the police officers are receiving the brunt of it quite frankly.”
She went on to claim that the Atlanta city government has “a great working relationship with police” and that the issues with morale were temporary.
“In fact, our officers were given a historic pay raise by our administration, and it was so our officers wouldn’t have to work three jobs and be fatigued so that they could afford to live in the city of Atlanta, so they wouldn’t be resentful about policing our streets so that we could have the best to choose from on our force,” Bottoms told Cuomo. “We expect that our officers will keep their commitment to our communities.”
