Georgia state Sen. Nikema Williams (D-Atlanta) was arrested along with more than a dozen other protesters at the Georgia State Capitol on Tuesday afternoon at a demonstration asking the state to count every vote from last weeks gubernatorial election. Protesters shouted Let her go! as Williams was handcuffed while the General Assembly was in session.
Williams, a civil rights advocate who organized domestic workers for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, was charged with misdemeanor obstruction of justice and spent about six hours at Fulton County Jail in Atlanta.

Shut the hell up!
I wonder if we'll see Oprah coming to GA to get arrested? No, she doesn't want to spend any time in the Fulton Country Jail.

Free speech does not include the disruption of legislative bodies.
Shouting and chanting inside a legislature is not peaceful assembly.
“Funny that. I thought she went there so she could be arrested.”
And to make it about race. Beings how if she was white things would be different?
Is anyone tired of the race card and victim claims?
When you have nothing to offer flip out the race card.

I have come to the conclusion that the best way to deal with this is an aggressive litigation strategy. Calling someone a racist ought to result in being served with a defamation suit.
I pay mine ALL THE TIME. Especially when it’s most ridiculous.
I call it my “White Privilege Card”.
pay = play
Worse yet, he be a "Oreo". Black on the outside, white on the inside.
