GA: Atlanta “defund the police” backer has car stolen … by kids in broad daylight

Source: Fox News

“An Atlanta city councilman (who is aiming to be the city’s next mayor) had his car stolen by children in broad daylight Wednesday, according to reports. Councilman Antonio Brown was attending a ribbon-cutting ceremony at an event in northeast Atlanta around noon when at least four kids jumped into his car and took off, FOX 5 of Atlanta reported. … Brown, who joined the city’s mayoral race less than three weeks ago, is running on a campaign of ‘reimagining public safety,’ the paper reported. Last year, he voted in support of an ordinance to withhold $73 million from the budget of the Atlanta Police Department. The ordinance was narrowly voted down.” [editor’s note: so, the police haven’t been “defunded,” but his car got stolen anyway. Seems to say more about the usefulness (or lack thereof) of the police than about the error of his position – TLK] (05/27/21)
