(Kasim Reed is a candidate for Mayor of Atlanta. This statement was issued via his website.)

September 12th, 2009

I am deeply concerned by initial reports I have heard about the raid at the Atlanta Eagle. While all the facts are not yet known, any claims of discrimination, intolerance, or excessive force being used by our Police is a matter of the highest priority. Therefore, I am calling for an immediate, thorough and transparent investigation to be conducted by both APD and the Citizen Review Board. At the conclusion of this inquiry, if misconduct is found to have taken place, the officers should be held accountable. Conversely, if the police are found to have acted in accordance with proper procedure and without malice, that should be reported as well. As mayor, I will ensure that our city is a place where the rights and dignity of all its citizens are valued and protected every day.
