What Hillary Clinton said before her Atlanta rally


While we were stuck at a ceremonial room at Atlanta City Hall on Friday waiting for Hillary Clinton to speak, the Democrat spoke to an overflow crowd of at least 500 in the building’s rotunda.

The campaign just released video of her brief remarks with Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, which you can find above

I’m really looking forward to being a great partner for Atlanta and Georgia,” she told the crowd.

Clinton’s decisive victory in South Carolina, the first state to vote where black voters make up a majority of the Democratic electorate, bodes well for her in the next round of states that vote Tuesday. Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia are all states where minorities make up a key portion of the party’s voter base.

Sanders, who said Sunday that he was “decimated” in South Carolina, has all but conceded the South to Clinton. His campaign is focusing its advertising dollars and arranging his visits to states in the Midwest and Northeast.

“No question Secretary Clinton won that state and she won it big,” Sanders said of his South Carolina loss on “Meet the Press.” “But I’m in Minnesota now, and I think we’ve got a real shot at Minnesota. I think we’ve got a real shot at Colorado, Oklahoma, Massachusetts and Vermont. So we’re looking to the future, not looking back.

Man shot by police at wrong address asked, ‘Why did they shoot me? Why did they shoot my dog?’


A man shot by police officers who went to the wrong Atlanta house ran bleeding outside where a neighbor heard him asking, “Why did they come in my house? Why did they shoot me? Why did they shoot my dog?”

It happened Monday night when officers arrived at the wrong Atlanta address after a report of suspicious activity, shot homeowner Christopher McKinley, killed his dog and “likely” shot a fellow officer, leaving him seriously wounded, authorities said Tuesday.

The bloody misunderstanding began when DeKalb County police received a report of a possible burglary at a one-story residence near an intersection in southeast Atlanta. Lacking an exact address, the officers were sent in the dark to a neighborhood where many of the single-story homes look similar.

Three officers found a home they thought matched a description provided by a 911 caller, but were unable to make contact with anyone inside, according to a statement from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. They entered the home through an unlocked rear door and two officers fired their guns at a dog, killing it.

Confederate Flags Left at Martin Luther King’s Church in Atlanta


Confederate Flags

ATLANTA — Surveillance cameras caught images of two white males laying Confederate battle flags on the ground near the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s church, but it wasn’t clear whether they had committed a crime.

Atlanta police Chief George Turner said Thursday his officers were working with federal authorities and hadn’t determined what, if any, charges might be sought. Turner said they had not ruled out a hate crime, though Georgia has no state hate crimes law.

An officer from the Atlanta FBI’s joint terrorism task force was on the scene “to better determine if any specific threats were received” and to provide support to Atlanta police, FBI Special Agent Steve Emmett said in an email.

CONFEDERATE FLAGS LEFT AT MARTIN LUTHER KING’S CHURCH IN ATLANTA

An officer from the Atlanta FBI’s joint terrorism task force was on the scene “to better determine if any specific threats were received” and to provide support to Atlanta police, FBI Special Agent Steve Emmett said in an email.

The placing of the flags was the latest provocative act involving the Civil War-era symbol since nine black church members were gunned down during Bible study in Charleston, South Carolina, and it happened in the heart of an area devoted to the slain civil rights leader, near his birthplace, his crypt and a center devoted to preserving his legacy.
