The LGBT Advisory group for the Atlanta Police Department will hold a meeting July 13 to discuss the investigations of the Eagle raid.
The city released the APD's Office of Professional Standards investigation into the botched raid late Tuesday and an independent investigation by prestigious law firm Greenberg Traurig was also released late Tuesday.'
You can read about some of the findings in the investigations here, including links to the full reports.
Overall, the reports clearly state police officers violated numerous procedures during the raid, including violating the patrons' Fourth Amendment rights. The investigations also found there to be specific instances of anti-gay discrimination during the raid of the gay bar.
Eagle attorney Dan Grossman will be attending the LGBT Advisory group meeting to discuss the investigations and the APD's LGBT liaisons will also be attending the meeting to give updates. Other APD staff are being invited to attend.
The meeting is set for 7 p.m. at Saint Mark United Methodist Church, 781 Peachtree St. NE, Atlanta, GA 30308.
