Burned down Wendy’s, Atlanta

Ok, enough is enough.

This is about as evil as you can get and a horrible story to have to report.

According to police, 8 year old Secoriea Turner was riding in a car with her mom and an adult friend when car turned off the interstate near the Wendy’s in Atlanta where Rayshard Brooks was shot by the police. They were trying to enter a parking lot to turn around but were stopped by people who were illegally blocking the entrance.

Protesters had been illegally occupying the area since the killing of Brooks.

An armed group of black males surrounded the car. At some point in the interaction, someone in the group shot into the car, killing the little girl.

Police are now looking for two males: a man wearing all black and “dressed like a bounty hunter,” the other shooter was a man wearing a white T-shirt.

Her parents spoke out.

From WSB:

“She was only 8 years old,” Charmaine Turner said. “She would have been on Tik Tok dancing on her phone, just got done eating. We understand the frustration of Rayshard Brooks. We didn’t have anything to do with that. We’re innocent. My baby didn’t mean no harm.”

Secoriya Williamson, Secoriea’s father, also spoke out.

“They say black lives matter,” Williamson said. “You killed your own this time. You killed a child. She didn’t do nothing to nobody.”

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Bottoms is now saying authorities will clear out the area protesters have been occupying.

Bottoms announced that after weeks of trying to negotiate protesters occupying the Wendy’s, the efforts are over and the area will be cleared.

“A the point that an 8-year-old baby is killed, the discussions have ended,” Bottoms said.

And this wasn’t even the first shooting involving the area.

Why were they allowed to have armed folks occupying the area at all? They’ve been there for weeks and the city was “negotiating” with them? Unbelievable abandonment of their responsibilities to protect the citizenry by Democratic authorities, yet again. Just like with the Seattle autonomous zone and the protesters continuously blocking the I-5 highway in Seattle, local officials didn’t put a stop to dangerous situation until after a tragedy. They gave all kinds of license to break the law because “protest.” None of the people should be dead if the local officials just did their job and enforced the law. You can protest without illegally taking over streets and parking lots, and without illegally blocking the highway.

But now, it’s contributed to the death of this little eight year old. How many black lives and other lives have been lost because of this now? Absolutely shameful.
