Black lives don't matter to the radical activists because that's not their goal

Defund the Police? Following the Death of a Little Girl, Atlanta Area Eyes the Addition of a Private Security Force

If you Defund the Police, does funding different police mean you triumphed?

It’s a question some may ask in Atlanta.

According to WSBTV, on Saturday, a 7-year-old girl died in the heart of Georgia

Horrifically, she’d been struck by a bullet in the back of the head.

The shooting occurred near Phipps Plaza — in the Buckhead area — days before.

As reported by The Daily Caller, on December 22nd, Atlanta District 7 councilmember Howard Shook lamented it was “obvious that the civilian authorities do not control the streets and cannot provide even a token feeling of safety beyond our front doors.”

He had fierce words for the (higher) Powers That Be:

“To the administration, I don’t want to hear the word ‘uptick.’ Stop minimizing our concerns by telling us that ‘crime is up everywhere.’ Spare us from the lie that the steady outflow of our officers isn’t as bad as it is. And please, not another throw-away press conference utterly devoid of game changing action steps.”

In the aftermath of the little girl’s murder, Atlanta Police confirmed to NBC: There’s been a homicide spike.

Atlanta Police Officer Steve Avery laid it out:

“As of the end of the week 52 reporting period we are at 154 homicides compared with 99 for the same period of 2019,” Atlanta Police Officer Steve Avery said. “That is an increase of 61%.”
