Atlanta Mayor Scolds Violent Protestors: Not in the Spirit of MLK Because Atlanta Wasn’t Burned When MLK Was Assassinated

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms addresses the protests outside the CNN Center over the death of George Floyd.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms clarifies the destructive actions of rioters that have no purpose. Compare to Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s curfew announcement.

We will protect our city and protect each other. I will not let criminals take over our city, and shame the majority of us.

— Lori Lightfoot, Chicago Mayor

Mayor Lori Lightfoot was followed by Chicago Police Supt. David Brown who spoke about the Minneapolis incident as not representative of law enforcement across the United States.

Brown explained that, “protests start out peacefully, and then another element comes in and they start out angry, mean-spirited, harmful, hurting …”

Responding to a question from WTTW media, Lightfoot said there was no consideration to call up the National Guard. She answered with a terse ‘no.’

The vast majority of people who assembled yesterday and today did what we would have expected, which is peaceful protest. But for the other element, they came to stir up a mess, create havoc, and we’re not having it in our city.
