Demand Justice For Jimmy Atchison
When Atlanta officer Sung Kim found Jimmy Atchison hiding in a closet after he chased him while serving a warrant, he didn’t cuff him or ask any questions. He shot first - at point-blank range.
This was a cold-blooded execution.
The Atlanta City Council and Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms have yet to give any real answers to the family about why Officer Kim still has a job! Investigations have been ongoing, but here’s what we already know:
Investigation or not, Officer Kim needs to be FIRED. Even before this tragedy, he’s had a decades-long history of excessive force.
Cops like Officer Kim have to be held accountable or we’ll be dealing with this issue forever. Just because someone commits a crime or is suspected of doing so doesn’t mean a cop gets to be the judge, jury, and executioner
Jimmy’s family has repeatedly sought answers and reached out to the city of Atlanta for help, but they’re not getting the closure they deserve. Meanwhile, Officer Kim has only been put on administrative leave.
It’s time for us to intervene - this family needs our support and deserves justice.
Let’s make sure that we hold this officer accountable for what he did. For any of us who aren’t police officers, the LEAST that would happen if we killed someone is losing our job - not to mention prison time!
Here’s what you can do. Tell Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and the City Council to #FireKim NOW!
