Atlanta’s police chief Erika Shields was forced to resign on Saturday, as the authorities feared another revolt on the scale of the Minneapolis uprising following the killing of George Floyd.
Militants on Saturday night set fire to the Wendy’s restaurant where Brooks was murdered the night before and blocked traffic on a nearby highway.
The Wendy’s had called the pigs on Rayshard Brooks for sleeping in his car and allegedly blocking the restaurant’s drive-thru lane. This case demonstrates how capitalist institutions and police conspire to murder black people.
Brooks was a father of four and had celebrated a daughter’s eighth birthday Friday before he was killed.
Since the murder of George Floyd, revolutionaries have taken to the streets throughout the United States, setting fire to police vehicles and even a precinct in Minneapolis. Abolitionist ideas have taken ahold among people in the streets, who no longer are willing to settle for reforms. As police continue to murder black people around the country, they will face militant retribution by people who are attacking the pig enemy and the capitalist infrastructure they protect.
