Earlier this week, Atlanta Police responded to a domestic violence call at 1572 Hardee St. at the Edgewood Courts Apartments. A young man was arrested and that’s when his brother jumped into the situation and began to question the police. The situation escalated resulting in the police having to subdue the man which many said was a classic case of police brutality.
The next day, the community responded by staging a march against the alleged police brutality. During the march, two separate officers in the area were ambushed by multiple people throwing bricks, rocks, and hitting their police cruisers.
Did the crowd escalate the situation on both days? Is the case against the police diluted when citizens aggravate an already heightened situation with the police?
