Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms says she was surprised by the speed with which charges were brought against six Atlanta police officers who allegedly used excessive force at a protest

The officers were filmed in downtown Atlanta breaking windows of a vehicle, yanking a woman out of the car and tasing a man. The two victims were later identified as college students at Spelman and Morehouse, both historically black schools, and were returning from protests calling for an end to police violence against black citizens.Arrest warrants have been issued for Lonnie Hood, Willie Sauls, Ivory Streeter, Mark Gardner, Armond Jones and Roland Claud.

"As we watch the video today, it became abundantly clear immediately with the young woman that this force was excessive," Bottoms said on Sunday."It also became abundantly clear that the officer who tased the young man needed to be terminated as well."One of the officers wrote in a police report that he used his taser because he was unsure whether Pilgrim or Young were armed.

How many arrests for the looters and the people who ran over the Atlanta policeman?

KeishaBottoms Failed Atlanta. corrupt Kasim at least came out during riots in Ferguson area and stood with crowds to stop them.. she instead stood with gang bangers.
