  1. Some officers do over exaggerate and over use force. But these days it’s tough being a cop especially when you have a mayor that won’t back up it’s fellow officers. She clearly throws her officers under the bus without calling out the suspects behavior. Most of the time all the situations the officers are in are escalated by the suspect.

  2. Good luck without the police. You got what you begged for.

  3. Mayor Keisha Lance is arguably the weakest leader and a pathetic excuse of a Mayor. She has betrayed the Atlanta Police and all this woman cares about is appeasing the criminals. She should be removed from office and needs to be fired.

  4. Can the cop sue Atlanta and the mayor for defamation

  5. Shameful actions by the mayor, especially considering she claims she was a lawyer and a judge and still retains her bar credentials she should know better. I am not part of the bar association or a lawyer but, commiting to cause the firing of the officer before a full investigation and using her position in a government agency to affect the outcome in an unethical/unprofessional manner sounds alot like a violation of rule 8.4(a)(6) of Georgia Bars rules of professional conduct.
    All of the opinions that I have read/viewed made by legal analyst and professionals looking at all the available video evidence in regard to this shooting have given the opinion that the shooting was very clearly justified.

  6. PROGRESSIVE RADICAL DEMS AGAIN…
    NYC MAYOR& GOV FIRES 700 PLAIN CLOTHES OFFICERS..
    DEMS SUPPORT VIOLENCE AGAINGST INNOCENT FOLKS, ALLOWING MAJOR DRUG CARTELS TO CLOSE IN AND TAKEOVER CITIES

  7. You will never hire a quality officer again, Ms. Bottoms. No self-respecting LEO would ever work for your administration! #DISGUSTING

  8. Vote Bottoms Out 👎 If No Indictment .

  9. They are stressed because you don't have a backbone

  10. Yeah apparently she didn't look at the video that I saw you must have been smoking pot and doing heroin at the same time

  11. Hey Keisha, give it up , that job is not for you. You’re a disgrace and big failure. Step aside and put somebody else ,,,, anybody would be better than you ! 🤬😡🤬😡

  12. Don't worry tasers are not excessive force anymore 😉. Mayor Bottoms thinks its okay for thugs shoot tasers at cops faces and resist arrested then crys foul when the police defend themselves. Hypertrophic

  13. Fire the mayor… what a useless dufuss.

  14. This mayor needs to resign! If not then these officers in Atlanta need to call in sick and let her deal with all the riots!!

  15. She's letting her feelings get in the way of doing her job. Maybe they need to get rid of her!!

  16. LOL, Atlanta doesn't have a mayor anymore than Seattle does

  17. Police jobs are much easier than the average working person.

  18. Jesus Christ. If these thugs are having problems containing their enthusiasm for torture maybe they should take a paid COVID day off. This is sick. Nothing in anyone's imagination could possibly excuse this level of grotesque violence against innocent civilians.

  19. Who is Keisha to preach, go save Wayne Williams you self righteous hypocrite KMT! Repent

  20. Black cops always try and impress their white masters.

  21. Need to be in jail.. all 5 of them

  22. Cops needs to protest for their rights, you can't terminate them who is trying to save city from the loot.

  23. Don’t “go home.” Go out and protest this.

  24. This was beautiful. I've watching this over and over again.

  25. Where's V when you need him?..lol..

  26. This is why your people are protesting and you’re ordering them to go home!Karma is a b!tch it will eventually catch on you by your children or relatives

  27. I'd live in black and white communities and the difference is white take care and has more pride in their communities while majority blacks don't care unless it benefits them period! All this riots not protest is all excuses to steal, This is an example of benefiting majority of them!

  28. The video is truly awful

  29. Where are the protests when a cop gets killed

  30. You are a part of the system! Where’s the passion for the injustice and inappropriate behavior by officers you have to the protesters? I wouldn’t vote for her or Biden!

  31. You are a part of the system! Where’s the passion for the injustice and inappropriate behavior by officers you have to the protesters? I wouldn’t vote for her or Biden!

  32. You are a part of the system! Where’s the passion for the injustice and inappropriate behavior by officers you have to the protesters? I wouldn’t vote for her or Biden!

  33. You are a part of the system! Where’s the passion for the injustice and inappropriate behavior by officers you have to the protesters? I wouldn’t vote for her or Biden!

  34. Yeah you are cute but telling young people to vote for this system I’m which you have not represented the people who put you in office!
