Atlanta mayor: 2 officers fired in 'excessive force' arrests
Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms announced Sunday two police officers were fired after complaints that they used excessive force, including tasing a Spelman College student, during the city’s curfew crackdown Saturday, (May 30) night.
“Some time during the night, I saw very disturbing video of two young college students who were in downtown Atlanta yesterday evening. The use of force is never acceptable,” Bottoms said.
