Atlanta Citizen Review Board Wants Eagle Raid Cops Punished, However Unlikely That Is

Atlanta’s Citizen Review Board said steps should be taken, or whatever, against the 24 city cops who last year raided the Atlanta Eagle, the gay bar where patrons were forced to the ground while the fuzz searched for … drugs, was it? And while the board held off on recommending exact sentencing, the maximum punishment under Atlanta Police Department rules allows for a three-day suspension, which is too lenient, they all nodded their heads to declare. Oh, also worth mentioning? The board’s conclusions are non-binding, and APD has never acted based on the board’s findings. So yeah, great use of time everyone!
