Atlanta Mayor Admits Disaster But Not Happy About Nat’l Guard Help


Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms finally admitted that enough is enough and the shootings have gotten out of hand. Atlanta has become a disaster area after she, and the District Attorney, threw the police under the bus, so to speak.

The mayor admitted that while protesters and rioters are touting the reason for their riots is violence against the black community, the same community has been shooting up the black community ever since, at a skyrocketing rate. Not police.

According to Inside Scoop Politics, an 8-year-old was shot and killed over the weekend after the car she was in was blocked by protesters and they tried to turn around. That’s when at least 2 people opened fire on the vehicle, killing the 8-year-old girl.

Governor Brian Kemp decided to deploy 1,000 National Guard to help quell the violence and protect buildings.

You'd think Mayor Bottoms would be happy with the help but you'd be wrong.

From the AP:

The mayor of Atlanta said Tuesday that she doesn’t agree with the Georgia governor’s order to mobilize the National Guard in her city as a surge in violence became a political talking point.

She also admitted that they're losing "the movement" and it's not police that are doing the damage. It's the protesters. Specifically the BLM protesters.

“We’ve protested, we’ve demonstrated, we’ve been angry, we’ve cried, we’ve demanded action. Well now we’re demanding action for Secoriea Turner and for all of the other people who were shot in Atlanta last night and over the past few weeks because the reality is this – these aren’t police officers shooting people on the streets of Atlanta, these are members of the community shooting each other, and in this case, it is the worst possible outcome.”

Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms is unhappy that Governor Brian Kemp didn't ask her before making the decision.

She's had weeks to make a decision that could help stop the violence but she's chosen to play politics instead of take care of the citizens in her city. She could have requested the help at any time but she chose to blame everyone else that couldn't have possibly been responsible while covering for those who were directly responsible.

I'm not sure why the governor would ask for her input at this point. She's proven to be incapable of managing her city.

    It seems all democratic mayors are inept and totally incompetent. They don’t care about the lives of their black people! Too many, one is TOO many innocent children killed. Good call Gov Kemp! Bring in National Guard! Needed in all cities in chaos!!

    1. Fran – so well spoken! Time to take back our Country! Get out and vote in November – in person! Call Republican Senators & Congressman. Demand they speak out against these domestic terrorists and DEMAND THEY SUPPORT OUR PRESIDENT!!

  3. THE RIGHT THING? AFTER ALL THE PEOPLE KILLED AND THE AMOUNT OF TIME THIS SO CALLED GOVERNOR AND MAYORS HAD AND PRESIDENT TRUMP TELLING THEM TO USE THE NATIONAL GUARD THAT HE HAS ON STANDBY FOR THEM. I SAY: HANG EM AND HANG EM HIGH.

  4. Mayor you are an awful mayor. You should get out of the business of protecting you citizens.
    You need to control you problems which I see you do not have the ability to do.

  5. There is blood on the Mayor’s hands. How many people have died because the Mayor would not accept the help of the National Guard when President Trump offered it to her. All those deaths since President Trump’s offer to send in the National Guard are the responsibility of the Mayor’s decision to not accept that help. The National Guard could have prevented all those deaths.

  6. A child was shot and killed because she refused to stop the protesters and restore order to the city. The governor of GA needs to have this woman removed from office. There is no excuse for this, and you can’t blame Trump for this child’s murder.

  7. The woman could not control her city and doesn’t “need or want” Government help. She has even blamed Trump for the death of an 8 year old black child who was killed by two black males and TRUMP IS WHITE but it is his fault of course. The woman is smart, beautiful but STUPID. It is a white man’s fault that two brothers killed a black child because of a white man. REEEEEEEEEEALLLLLLLLY?

  8. She’s a typical “Bottom-less Pit” of excuses for not doing her job and the de rigeur Demented-Dem action for NOT attempting to create a sane environment for Atlanta’s citizens.

  9. “She’s had weeks to make a decision that could help stop the violence but she’s chosen to play politics instead of take care of the citizens in her city. She could have requested the help at any time but she chose to blame everyone else that couldn’t have possibly been responsible while covering for those who were directly responsible.

    There’s the meat of the whole situation!

  10. She just DOESN”T want 2 manage the city. Totally willing 2 allow destruction of business/jobs 2 appeal 2 the MARXIST LOOTERS?ARSONISTS THUGS. When the death of children threw her sacrifice the city strategy off , she cried WOLF! Still she didn’t act, all she did was grandstand 4 the camera’s. The governor stepped in 2 stop the carnage & made her look weak & incapable.

  11. All Democrat-run cities have faced the similar problem with lawlessness and mayhem caused by those who shirk the law. The violators should be arrested, jailed and fined accordingly. Stop the first destruction of property or shooting and the rest may never occur. Put the fear of God into those who decide to cause harm and destruction.
