When things got bad in big cities decades ago folks moved to the burbs. But some stayed. Then they found out later they aren’t far enough from a Democrat run city and they still are affected by dumb Democrat policies like defund the police. One if those places is Buckhead, in Atlanta.
I’ve been there. Nice area. But even a nice area can become dangerous if Democrats run it into the ground. That’s why Buckhead wants to be a separate city where police are respected and made to feel part of the community.
However, Atlanta won’t want that. Solid successful areas like Buckhead pay a lot of taxes to the city. Atlanta is a parasite on Buckhead and no parasite wants to lose its host. So Atlanta will fight to keep Buckhead. They should let those people go.
It’s no wonder Buckhead wants to secede from Atlanta, we all know how many years Atlanta has refused to prosecute crime.

Fox: “An Atlanta suburb is aiming to secede from the Peach State’s capital as violent crime plagues the city’s streets. According to Fox News tracking, rape is up 80% as of June 18, burglaries are up 26%, and robberies are up 8%.
Buckhead City Committee CEO Bill White joined “Fox & Friends First” to discuss how crime has dismantled city streets and the impact of the ‘defund the police’ movement on public safety.”
“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 said. “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.”
White has words of praise for Governor Kemp. “Thanks to Gov. Kemp, he’s come in to help save Buckhead, but he’s not the mayor of Atlanta, so that’s a temporary fix for what we’re endorsing,” White said. “But if Stacey Abrams was the governor, this wouldn’t be happening, so that’s why we’re voting for Brian Kemp for governor.”
