Apd: Release #Alexia Christian Shooting Footage! Press Conference With Sen. Vincent Fort says
Last week, Alexia Christian, a 25-yr old black mother of two, was shot and killed by two Atlanta Police Officers outside of the Underground Atlanta precinct on Pryor St.

A Rise Up member was on the scene, and immediately noted a surveillance camera directly above the scene of the shooting; APD has acknowledged that there is footage of the incident, both from surveillance and from the dashcam of the APD cruiser where the shooting occurred, but that this footage will NOT be released to the public, pending internal investigation.

This is not acceptable, in any city, at any time. Law Enforcement is here to serve the community, and when there is a fatal encounter between officers & civilians, the process of investigation must be impartial, and most of all, transparent.

We make this demand regardless of the content of the footage, and that such investigations never be done internally. If the officers behaved appropriately, so be it, but let the community you serve be a part of the process.

Tomorrow, we will join our friend, State Senator Vincent Fort, who shares our conviction that this tape needs to be public. He will hold a press conference at 1:30pm, at APD HQ: 226 Peachtree St. SW, Atlanta, GA 30303, and we will be there to stand with him. WE HOPE YOU WILL JOIN US!

If there is nothing to hide, APD, don't hide it.
