"Citizens Review Board: Police used abusive language in botched Atlanta Eagle bar raid"

GA Voice

The Atlanta Citizens Review Board on Thursday sustained allegations of abusive, anti-gay and racist language used by Atlanta Police Department officers during the botched raid of the Atlanta Eagle last year. But the board chose not to make recommendations for disciplinary action until more investigations into complaints by employees and patrons were completed.

The Eagle is a gay bar located on Ponce de Leon Avenue. It was raided in September 2009. 

"Citizen Review Board Finds Police Misconduct During Eagle Raid"

WABE

ATLANTA, GA - In coming to the conclusion that at least some Atlanta Police Officers used abusive, homophobic language, members of the volunteer citizen panel went against the recommendations of their paid staff. Atlanta Citizen Review Board executive director Chris Beamud says because the complaints were not made against specific officers by name, her staff had no choice.
