Despite demands made by a group affiliated with the Black Lives Matter movement to stop the Atlanta Police Department to train with the Israeli police, Mayor of Atlanta Kasim Reed refused, saying US police officers benefit greatly from Israel’s counter-terrorism expertise. Thank the mayor for taking a stand!
The Mayor of Atlanta on Monday said that Israeli police officers will continue to train the Atlanta police department despite demands made by ALTisREADY, a group affiliated with the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement.
“There was a demand that I stop allowing the Atlanta Police Department to train with the Israeli police department,” Mayor Reed said at a press conference.
“I’m not going to do that. I happen to believe that the Israeli police department has some of the best counter-terrorism techniques in the world and it benefits our police department from that long-standing relationship,” he said.
Thank Mayor Reed for standing up to Israel-haters!
Say thank you!
