Volume warning on the second video
After edited video surfaced online of a female protester seemingly get dragged across the pavement during an attempted arrest, police have released body cam from one of the officers involved in the clash.
The incident in question happened Tuesday night, when protestors from a group called All Out Atlanta marched as part of a rally against the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency, or ICE.
Dozens of readers and viewers shared the edited video with 11Alive showing a woman being dragged, but none of them showed what happened in the moments leading up to the confrontation. A clearer, second video from a source attending the event, also showed the arrests, but still not the moments leading up to them.
Spokesperson for the Atlanta Police department Carlos Campos told 11Alive a group of between 30 and 50 protestors began marching from Woodruff Park toward Centennial Olympic Park around 9:30 pm.
As they marched, several wore masks, one kicked a patrol vehicle, several threw items at patrol vehicles and they refused to clear from the road after numerous orders to do so, Campos said. Protestors remained in the roadway and refused orders to clear the road. Once it became clear the protestors had no intention of complying with repeated lawful orders, officers moved in and took six protestors into custody for disorderly conduct, pedestrian in roadway and obstruction charges.
It seems to be a trend now to not put up with these protesters. Could it be because of a change at the top?
“Dozens of readers and viewers shared the edited video with 11Alive showing a woman being dragged, BUT NONE OF THEM SHOWED WHAT HAPPENED IN THE MOMENTS LEADING UP TO THE CONFRONTATION.”
Standard operating procedure for commie agitators/”community organizers”.
That it? - that aint nuttin. . . I was hoping to see that ugly white chick get dragged behind a car for a mile or two
Heh heh. That wasn’t a protest, that was a tantrum.
You are absolutely correct.
When the police don’t have to worry about the Justice Dept. breathing down their necks, they aren’t afraid to take out the trash...
These were probably a bunch of Emory students coming over to kibitz with the police.
The police responded properly.
signed moi, the retired psych nurse that worked hospitals and prisons. (Just observation from a vet not opinion).
This is exactly what I expected as a resident of Atlanta.
All the cops are AA. Most of the loudest people yelling at them are not.
Anarchists. Virtue signaling. Terrible human beings.
Except in Chicago
They ran them off in Portland. The protesters that is.
Don’t eff with Fulton County Law.
Don’t ask me how I know.
Only place rougher than the Atlanta/Fulton Co jail is the Dekalb Co jail.
You didn’t hit them, did ya?
They need to bring in some New Orleans cops to deal with that snot that was claiming to be a reporter. Do Atlanta cops even use billy sticks anymore?
I thing the Maglites now perform the billy club function.
I don’t like aluminum bats in baseball. Why should Maglites be tolerated in law enforcement. Return to traditional values.
There were a whole lot fewer questionable police shootings when the cops could give free maple shampoos to the troublemakers.
“——cops could give free maple shampoos to the troublemakers.”
The boys I grew up with in Boston,in the 40s,got plenty of those “showers”——and no complaints from the parents either-—they figured the guys probably deserved them. :-)
“Forget it. It’s Atlanta”.
Honest journalism died after Ralph McGill did.
