Citizen Review Board Finds Police Misconduct at Eagle

by on August 18, 2010

Atlanta’s Citizen Review Board found police guilty of misconduct during the Atlanta Eagle raid.

At an August 12, 2010 public meeting at Atlanta City Hall, the Board sustained allegations that police officers made racist and anti-gay slurs and used the “F word” to abuse and demean Eagle patrons and employees during the raid.

The Board voted to postpone a recommendation about disciplinary sanctions until it completes its overall investigation of police misconduct at the Eagle.

More information is available from Atlanta NPR-affiliate WABE Radio (“Citizen Review Board Finds Police Misconduct During Eagle Raid“) and The Georgia Voice newspaper (“Police used abusive language in botched Atlanta Eagle bar raid“).
