For months Occupy Atlanta has stood alongside Christine Frazer in her fight to save her home. At 3 am May 2nd Dekalb County Sheriff Deputies raided the house and put the family on the street with the belongings they accumulated over the 18 years they lived there.
The property of 3662 Wellhaun Rd. and that of the neighbors was littered with discarded furniture by the Dekalb County Sheriff's Department. On May 7th people that fought to defend the Frazer home cleaned up the remains and brought it to the Sheriff's office.
Some individuals were targeted immediately after the event. Others were tracked down weeks later and were surprised to see multiple law enforcement officers at their door on May 29th to deliver citations for "Littering", "Disorderly Conduct", and "Creating Hazardous and Offensive Conditions."
We believe the Dekalb County Sheriff's department created these conditions during their raid of the Frazer home and deserves the very citations they are now delivering to folks who stepped up to help Chris clean up the mess that the Sheriff's office created.
We will be presenting Dekalb County Sheriff Thomas Brown with a citations for littering, disorderly conduct, and creating hazardous and offensive conditions for the actions he took against the Frazer family.
We have been told that Sheriff Brown plans on accepting the citation and sitting down, face to face, with Chris Frazer in his boardroom. We invite the media to be in the room when this happens.
