Atlanta Eagle Co-Owner Robby Kelley’s Letter to Atlanta Pride Committee about Officer Harris and the Pride Parade

October 27, 2009

To the Atlanta Pride Committee:

As a person who was held on the floor of the Atlanta Eagle, I would like to request that Officer Harris walk in the Pride Parade in her street clothes and not her Atlanta Police uniform. After coming out and saying that APD did nothing wrong, I feel this would be an injustice to our community. As a person taken to jail I find this offensive. Most of you do not know the true horror that we went through that night and that uniform represents all of it.
