8 year old Secoriea Turner was killed riding in a vehicle that tried to turn near the Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks was killed and road blocks had been set up by armed individuals. Her very distraught mother said that they didn’t have anything to do with [the killing of] Rayshard Brooks: “We’re innocent“, she said. Secoriea’s father said “They say black lives matter, you killed your own this time. You killed a child. She didn’t do nothing to nobody.” See: https://www.wsbtv.com/news/local/atlanta/new-video-released-shooting-death-8-year-old-atlanta-girl/AOPZCORUXFALBNXLEYDF43U234/
It appears that armed street gangs had taken control of the area near the former Wendy’s on University Ave. in Atlanta. The Mayor and the DA should have waited for the Georgia Bureau of Investigations to finish their investigation, before they fired and charged the officers in the Rayshard Brooks killing, and maybe this wouldn’t have happened. The charging of Officers Rolfe and Brosnan made police fearful; call in sick, and gave the green light for criminal street gangs. Many people have blood on their hands, now.
Good parents just want their kids to be safe: safe from gang shootings-violent crime, safe from gangs, and not into drugs. Unless something has changed, they want more police visibility – not less – and for the police to patrol by foot/community policing. The police knew about the street blockade 45 minutes before Secoriea was killed, but they lacked resources (or were unwilling) to go remove it.

They will almost certainly need this protection. $50,000 won’t go far.
