Trouble in Atlanta over police shooting
« on: January 22, 2023, 09:56:05 AM »
GA State Trooper was "reportedly" shot by an individual and in the ensuring return fire the shooter was killed.

Quote
Protestors were angry about the death of 26-year-old Manuel Esteban Paez Teran, who was killed by police after he allegedly refused demands from authorities on Wednesday and fired a gun at state troopers at the site of the new Atlanta Public Safety Training Center.

The activist reportedly identified as a nonbinary person who went by the name Tortuguita ("little turtle" in Spanish) and used they/it pronouns. Protesters carried signs with Tortuguita's name on Saturday.

"An individual, without warning, shot a Georgia State Patrol trooper," Georgia Bureau of Investigations' Michael Register told reporters earlier this week.

The Georgia State Patrol trooper, who was wearing a bulletproof vest, was shot in the abdomen. The law enforcement officer is in stable condition and is recovering from surgery.

Of course protests have to break out.

Quote
The Twitter account Scenes from the Atlanta Forest called for a "Night of Rage" to enact "reciprocal violence to be done to the police and their allies," according to a post.
"Consider this a call for reciprocal violence to be done to the police and their allies. On Friday, January 20th, wherever you are, you are invited to participate in a night of rage in order to honor the memory of our fallen comrade," the group wrote on Twitter, in an apparent violation of the platform’s terms and conditions.

Is it the contention of the protestors that it's OK to shoot people, including cops, if you are non-binary and use the correct pronouns?

I kind of like how the author and/or editor don't give a fig about the pronoun statement in the second sentence, and use "he" in the first sentence.

Still too early to say for sure if what the police say happened is what happened.
Just not taking sides in that yet.

While we can (and do) want more info on the actual shooting, I can safely refuse to take the sides of the folks who smashed windows of unrelated businesses and set a car on fire.  I feel I have enough info for that.

More info on the protests and the incident that sparked it.

Quote
Tortuguita was killed on Wednesday as authorities cleared a small group of protesters from the site of a planned Atlanta-area public safety training center that activists have dubbed 'Cop City.'

During the multi-agency operation on Wednesday, the GBI said approximately 25 campsites were located and removed from the site. Seven others were arrested and charged with domestic terrorism and criminal trespass, with additional charges pending

Teran was shot dead after allegedly opening fire at a Georgia State Patrol trooper during a 'clearing operation' of the so-called autonomous zone at the site of a future $90 million center.

Since June 2021, Antifa and other far-left extremists from across the US have occupied the area to prevent the construction of what they've dubbed 'cop city.'

The Georgia Bureau of Investigations (GBI) said a Georgia State Patrol trooper was shot and severely injured during the raid by a man camped in the area. Officers returned fire and killed Teran, who brandished a pistol.

Mostly peaceful

Also noticed some reports saying he pointed a gun at an officer with no mention of the officer that was shot.

I believe the hippies have been living in these woods for months to protest the building of the police center. A convenient forest fire would advance several goals.

The Georgia State Patrol might want to reexamine what they issue for ballistic protection.

Probably went under the vest.  Most body armor doesn't go all that far down, especially if it was a plate carrier.

Lets just totally ignore the fact they were calling for violence before the protests even started.

If you venture into Atlanta these days, particularly the gentrified areas full of the compassionate white liberals, you’ll find a shitton of BLM/Hands Up Don’t Shoot and so forth signs in the yards meanwhile every parking lot is covered in signs saying “Not responsible for theft from vehicles make sure no valuables are left in your car”

Interesting dichotomy, that.
