    The Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks was killed by Atlanta police last month is being torn down. Photos and videos from an Atlanta Journal-Constitution photographer on the scene show construction crews using an excavator to demolish the charred remains of the University Avenue restaurant. “This is being done in a thoughtful way, with safety as the priority and in cooperation with city officials,” a Wendy’s official told AJC.com. “There are no additional details to share at this time regarding this site.” Tuesday’s demolition comes a little more than a week after demonstrators who had camped out at the site following Brooks’...

    After Atlanta Police abandoned their posts due to Atlanta’s leadership turning their back on them, crime skyrocketed and shootings became relatively common. They became so common that 8-year-old Secoriea Turner was shot and killed on Saturday when a group of people shot up the car she was riding in as they passed by the same Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks was killed. (So Incredibly Evil: Armed Protesters Occupying Area Near Atlanta Wendy’s Reportedly Shoot and Kill Little Girl) Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms gave a press conference on the atrocity committed for no good reason.

    CNBC ^ | July 1, 2020 | Amelia Lucas
    NPC International, the largest U.S. franchisee of Yum Brands’ Pizza Hut, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Wednesday. The company operates more than 1,200 Pizza Huts and nearly 400 Wendy’s restaurants. In contrast to most of the restaurant industry, Pizza Hut is one of the rare companies to report same-store sales growth in April and May, thanks to higher digital and delivery sales. But the coronavirus pandemic follows years of slumping U.S. sales for Pizza Hut, and NPC has struggled with a debt burden of roughly $1 billion. Seeking Chapter 11 protection means that NPC can continue to operate while...

    The man who shot at police with a taser he stole from the police and then was shot dead by the police may not be the saint the mainstream media is attempting to make him out to be. Not only did Rayshard Brooks get in a struggle with police, steal their taser, run from the police and shoot the taser at the police, he was likely running due to the high risk that he would be going to prison based on his prior record.The mainstream media attempted to shine a positive light on Rayshard Brooks, who was gunned down in...

    Civil rights attorney Leo Terrell criticized Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms for firing the officer who shot Rayshard Brooks without due process. Brooks was shot by police Friday night in a Wendy’s parking lot after resisting arrest, fighting with police, grabbing a taser, running, then turning back to shoot the stolen taser at the pursuing officer. His death sparked another wave of protests in Atlanta over the weekend. Appearing with conservative radio host Larry Elder and Fox News host Sean Hannity on Monday night’s “Hannity” to discuss the shooting, Terrell said the Atlanta mayor was engaging in “typical Democratic playbook...

    Why is it time and again the cops fault? If they had tazed him they would have been tazing an unarmed black man? Would that have been the narrative? His car was parked and even though, as far as we know, he didn't run over a pedestrian while in an inebriated state, he was still drinking and driving, so no harm, no foul? Some are saying the unarmed black man should just be given a ticket and sent home. Don't arrest because he might resist arrest? When turning around while fleeing and firing the taser he puts out the cops...
