A suburb on the outskirts of Atlanta wants to formally separate from the city over “war zone” crime rates, illegal immigration, drugs, and a series of other factors.
Buckhead City Committee CEO Bill White joined “Fox & Friends First” discuss his proposal.
“We are really feeling like this is a war zone, and I don’t say that lightly, especially given what you experienced in a war zone,” White told co-host Joey Jones. “This is murder and mayhem… We are dealing with a mayor who voted to defund the police.
“It’s obvious that police officers do not want to come work for a mayor or a city that does not back them, so Buckhead wants to take things into its own hands,” he continued.
“We’re short 180 police officers, so what are we supposed to do?” White said. “They said this has never been done taking a part of a city out and making its own city from that, but we’re going to do it, and we’re going to absolutely love our police.”
“We’re going to pay them, we’re going to give them a take-home car, we’re going to welcome them,” he continued. “We’re going to honor them every day and make up for this dumbest move of the century, this ‘defund the police,’ and turn that on its heels and put the smack down on the crime here in Buckhead once and for all, and have a happy place to live.”
