Atlanta Braces for More Violence

1,000 Georgia National Guard members have been called up as Atlanta issued a state of emergency in fear of more unrest following last weekends violent riots.

The governor stated that:

“Georgians respect peaceful protests, but do not tolerate acts of violence against person or property.”


Gov. Brian Kemp said he called upon the National Guard to “subdue riot and unlawful assembly”.
During a Jan.18 sweep of Intrenchment Creek Park, a 26 year old protestor Manuel Esteban Paez Teran, died in a gun fight with Georgia State Troopers.
The area is the future site for the Atlanta Public Safety Training Center, or what the left is calling “Cop City.”
After an investigation it was found that Teran did not comply with commands from officers and fired at them first.
Several businesses were destroyed when rioters smashed out their windows and at least one business was set ablaze.

The officers were able to detain some of the rioters who were later found to have explosives in their possession.

Anti police tension has been rising in the city as events happening in Memphis, Tennessee fan the flames.
Five former Memphis police officers were charged with the death of Tyre Nichols when he died three days after getting into a confrontation with police at a traffic stop.

Body camera footage from that incident is expected to be released Friday.
Fox 5 Atlanta were told by sources in the Atlanta Police Department that they were implementing 12 hour shifts starting Friday in the anticipation of unrest.
CNN guest David Peisner received backlash last Saturday when he said:

“You keep using these words ‘violent, violent, violent, violent’… The only acts of violence against people that I saw were actually police tackling protesters.”

This has become a new normal in American cities following the destructive Spring 2020 riots across our nation.
