Anti-ICE Protesters Dangle Donuts At Cops, Hurl Umbrellas, Camp Out In Front Of City Jail

A group of protesters demanding an end to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency gathered outside Atlanta’s city jail and taunted cops and corrections officers, according to WSB-TV.

Amazingly, only one person went to jail, on a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct. No one got pepper sprayed or shot.

The protesters were reportedly rallying against the treatment of immigrants detained at the U.S.-Mexican border.

But Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance-Bottoms signed an executive order last week that put an end to detainees being housed at the city jail, so its unclear why the detainees chose to link up there.

Some protesters reportedly went after cops with umbrellas; others walked in front of cops with donuts dangling from fishing lines.

Police reportedly removed the protesters today. They had been camping out 3 nights in a row on a sidewalk across the street from the jail.
