Armed protesters stood guard on Tuesday at an Atlanta-area Wendy’s, the site where Rayshard Brooks, a black man shot twice in the back by an Atlanta police officer, died earlier this month.
Earlier in the day, a group of people had “taken over” the burned-out property in South Atlanta, according to local reports.
People living in the area also have complained that the protesters who remained were no longer peaceful, but instead were using the space for their own gain and at times blocking people on the street from getting by.
They claimed the Atlanta police weren’t doing much to solve the problem, making life for those living in the neighborhood a living nightmare. . .
Jones has been living about a mile from the Wendy’s where Brooks was shot and said it’s been physically difficult to get to her neighborhood ever since the group took over the parking lot and began wreaking havoc. (Read more from “Armed Protesters ‘Take Over’ Wendy’s Parking Lot” HERE)
