AMERICA’S MOST INNOCENT VICTIM OF POLICE VIOLENCE

Late Saturday evening tragedy struck the family of 40-year-old Justine Damond when she was shot and killed by Minneapolis Police Officer Mohamed Noor after calling 911 to report a possible sexual assault. This tragedy, like many others, seems to have been completely avoidable, like most police shootings that have gained mainstream media attention in the past 2 years but somehow Damond fell victim to the police violence our community has been screaming about for decades.

MARTA Ridership Boost Short-lived After Restoration of I-85 Bridge

When the I-85 Bridge was out of commission for six weeks, MARTA proponents hoped the catastrophe would mark a permanent collective shift toward public transit. The closure of one of Atlanta’s most important vehicular arteries was a prime opportunity to introduce those accustomed to commuting by car to alternative forms of transit – and the initial spike in ridership by 25 percent looked promising.
