Atlanta Mayor’s Kasim Reed’s Not-So-Awesome Solution For Solving Atlanta Raid Crisis


Atlanta’s Mayor Kasim Reed, who criticized the last year’s police raid on the Atlanta Eagle while campaigning, but then called the victims’ lawsuit against the city a financial “threat,” is learning to quietly eat his words. While he hasn’t come close to apologizing for the latest remarks — he says “any expression of my feelings could be part of the evidence in active litigation against the city of Atlanta” — he is promising a second LGBT police liaison. Which is nice, but, really? When all else fails, just KEEPING STAFFING UP, rather than addressing the actual root of the problem.

    We gays have a history of showing that we will quietly settle down from a roar to a mumble if some politico tosses us some scrap of a solution every now and then.

    This guy’s just tossing us our scrap. It’s our job to toss it back.
