The Atlanta Eagle Bar was awarded $1,000,000 after police raided the establishment in 2009……

The Atlanta City Council unanimously voted on Monday to pay the bar. A gay rights group filed the lawsuit against the city on the behalf of 19 people, who said they were illegally searched and arrested. Gay rights activist Xanna Don’t says justice was a long time coming.

The city is now overseeing the Atlanta Police Department.

    Between Mrs Johnston home being invaded and she killed and this lawsuit being settled, it wouild appear that we have a rogue police dept that will bankrupt this city…Some heads need to roll for this ineptitude…How many more lawsuits like this do we have that is waiting in the wings to be settled? Unbelieveable….
