ICE Protesters Taunt Atlanta Police, Cops In Riot Gear Tear Down Tent City

Atlanta police cleared protesters from the area outside the city jail on Monday, after three days of demonstrations.

Atlanta, GA – Emboldened by a national movement to shut down Immigration Customs and Enforcement offices and release jailed illegal immigrants, demonstrators blocked sidewalks, yelled profanities, and taunted and attacked law enforcement officers outside the Atlanta City Detention Center on Monday.

In order to get in and out of the building, police were forced to walk through the hoard of protesters, and at least one officer was escorted to her vehicle by her fellow officers to help ensure her safety, WSB reported.

“My officers were attacked with umbrellas, frozen bottled water – anything they could get their hands on,” an Atlanta Police Department spokesman told WSB.

One person held a fishing pole with a donut tied to the end of the line, and as officers passed by, they dangled the treat in front of them.

The protesters had been camped out in tents – a violation of Atlanta’s urban camping law – for three days as of Monday.

“We came up with our plan to make it safe for not only the citizens and the protesters, but for my officers,” the department spokesman told WSB.

At approximately 2:30 p.m., a group of approximately 20 officers in riot gear forced the demonstrators out of their tents and across the roadway.

Within a half hour, the bulk of the crowd had been dispersed, WSB reported.

Police said that no officers were injured during the three-day demonstration, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The only arrest was that of Tori Tremayne, who was charged with disorderly conduct on Sunday night after she refused to move her tent.

“Several protesters became violent, fighting and throwing items at the officers, including frozen water bottles,” Atlanta Police Officer Jarius Daugherty said of the incidents on Sunday. “One woman was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.”

The protest began just over a week after Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottom’s announcement that she had signed an executive order prohibiting the Atlanta City Detention Center from accepting any new ICE detainees, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

“The inhumane action of family separation demands that Atlanta act now,” Bottoms said at the time.

One example after another exposing those on the left for who they really are. Throwing a frozen bottle of water at an officers head is no different than using a rock or a brick and it should be met with the appropriate force by the officers.

That punk holding the pole and dangling the donut would have eaten that donut from the opposite end it's intended for and I can assure you he would not have been so damn smug afterward.

Stay classy leftist filth. What you are speaks louder than what you say.

Before the protesters left, each one should have been given custody of an immigrant in the jail. Responsibility goes with your protest. You cannot just turn these people loose in the street. They have no where to go, legally. So give each of the protesters one to take home.

Why wait three days? It should have been stopped before it had a chance to begin and/or escalate into something more serious. I realize that the Mayor or City Council were more than likely trying to be "nice", however, when you are dealing with bullies, you stop them in their tracks. Where has common sense gone?

Excellent job officers! And I think one of them should've grabbed they donut and said "thanks" - the joke would lose its steam and the officer would have a snack 😁

From the few pictures I’ve seen, these protesters all seem to be young people. We have lost an entire generation to this socialist/communist anarchism. It scares me that these people will someday run the world.

Me too, I'm so glad Trump won the election. At least that buys us 4 most likely 8 years of someone good in charge. Gotta teach your own kids early and teach them not everything you're taught in the public schools is right.

@Hi_estComnDenomnn You're not smart enough to mimic me because you don't know the difference between your and you're.

You should have paid more attention in public school.
