Atlanta is a violent cesspool. Like other Democrat-run cities, the bad guys and the mob are ruling the streets.
After burning the city to the ground with no repercussions, the mob is emboldened.
Now, they’re roaming and patrolling the streets well-armed and intimidating innocents and police.
It’s not about George Floyd or “Black Lives,” it’s about power, control, and corruption.
And city officials and police are allowing it to happen. They don’t want to look “racist” by shutting down the angry mob.
That lack of leadership – that fear – has lead to a scoring uptick in violent crime in liberal-run cities and now an innocent 8-year-old girl is dead after a mob of angry armed “BLM” protesters opened fire on her car.
Now, that the bad PR is flying, suddenly the mayor of Atlanta is awake and outraged?

She could have prevented this.
And because she has done nothing to stop the Democrat madness and violence a family is now burying their 8-year-old little girl.
And that family is crying out today – asking if “Black Lives Matter” why are they killing their own?

This is a question most people ask every weekend after the murder numbers come out in Chicago.
Officers said they responded to a 911 call near University Avenue and I-75/I-85 around 9:50 p.m. The location of the shooting was in a parking lot across the street from the now burned-out Wendy’s, which has been occupied by demonstrators since Brooks’ death at the hands of an Atlanta police officer.
Police said Turner was riding in a car with her mother and her mother’s friend when they exited the interstate at University Avenue. The driver tried to turn into the parking lot at 1238 Pryor Road when he was confronted by an “group of armed individuals” who had blocked the entrance.
“At some point, someone in that group opened fire on the vehicle, striking it multiple times and striking the child who was inside. The driver then drove to Atlanta Medical Center for help,” police said in a statement.
Police said the 911 caller told them they were heading to Atlanta Medical Center with the victim. The child died at the hospital.
On Sunday night, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms blasted protesters who had turned violent.
“You cant blame this on a police officer. You can’t say this about criminal justice reform,” Bottoms said. “This is about some people carrying some weapons who shot up a car with an 8-year-old baby in the car for what?!?
“Enough is enough,” Bottoms continued. “If you want people to take us seriously and you don’t want us to lose this movement, we can’t lose each other.”

This video brought me to tears.
This is a message from the parents of 8-year-old Secoriea Turner,
who was fatally shot near the same Wendy’s Rayshard Brooks was killed at in Atlanta.
Her life mattered.

Black Lives Matter is a Marxist movement with a “catchy” name – but the name does not live up to the agenda.
They don’t care about black lives unless they’re killed by a white police officer. This movement is about division, anger, and chaos.
If BLM was truly about “black lives” they’d be talking about school choice, trade schools, family units, and infrastructure.
Think about this…ten unarmed black people were killed by police in 2019. That’s not an “epidemic.” But how many black people were killed by other black people?
That’s your epidemic, but BLM doesn’t want to talk about that, because that will make Democrat politicians look bad.
