Protestors Call for Violence Against Police After Atlanta Shooting

Some protestors in Atlanta are calling for violence against police after a shooting on Wednesday involving an officer who was injured.

Protestors are planning a Friday "night of rage" event according to at least one online source.

"The Twitter account Scenes from the Atlanta Forest calls for a 'Night of Rage' on Friday to enact 'reciprocal violence to be done to the police and their allies,' according to the Scenes from the Atlanta Forest Twitter account," Fox News reported.

"Consider this a call for reciprocal violence to be done to the police and their allies. On Friday, January 20th, wherever you are, you are invited to participate in a night of rage in order to honor the memory of our fallen comrade," the group wrote on Twitter, in an apparent violation of the platform's terms and conditions.

The call for violence follows a Georgia State Patrol officer who was shot in the stomach on Wednesday as police were clearing an encampment where the new Atlanta Police Department location will be built.

After a man shot the officer, other officers returned fire and killed him. The names of the officer and the fatally shot man have not yet been released.

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) tweeted his support of the officer following news of the incident.

Marty, the girls, and I are praying for this brave Trooper and public safety officers across all law enforcement agencies today.

As our thoughts remain with him and his family, our resolve also remains steadfast and strong to see criminals brought to justice.
