Riots in another Democrat-controlled city that have been incited by the media have led CNN to erect protective fencing around its Atlanta headquarters.
One of the south's major cities has been engulfed by the lawless mayhem that has raged since the unfortunate killing of unarmed black man George Floyd by a bad cop and there is no end in sight.
The ongoing ransacking of Atlanta erupted after another police officer shot and killed an intoxicated black man who after being arrested for sleeping in a Wendy's drive-thru and then grabbed a Taser from one of the cops which resulted in him being killed.
With the city's Democrat Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms leading the rush to judgment to punish the police, angry rioters took to the streets, burning done the Wendy's where Rayshard Brooks was shot and running amok.
The remains of the burned-out Wendy's have since become something of a holy site to those who are looking to do likewise to a good portion of their city.
With it clear that the chickens have come home to roost for the greatest purveyors of hate on the planet, CNN moved quickly to put up a protective barrier around its central propaganda transmission station.
This comes after years of attacking President Trump over a border wall.
Via The Daily Caller, "CNN Puts Up Fence Outside Atlanta Headquarters Amid Ongoing Protests":
CNN put up a fence around its headquarters in Atlanta on Friday amid ongoing “Black Lives Matter” protests.
Demonstrations continued outside the Georgia state capitol Friday over the death of Rayshard Brooks, who was fatally shot June 12 in Atlanta by a police officer after running away with the officer’s taser. Photos posted by Townhall reporter Julio Rosas show CNN’s nearby headquarters surrounded by the new barrier following damage from an earlier protest that turned into a riot.
That CNN would put up a "wall" around its Atlanta headquarters is a testament to the raw hypocrisy of the self-proclaimed "most-trusted name in news" which at one time was a legitimate and respected news organization.
Times change and not for the better.
The CNN building was targeted earlier this month during the most violent stages of the George Floyd riots when "peaceful" protesters marched broke windows, defaced the iconic CNN sign and torched police cars in the vicinity.
A protest erupted outside CNN's headquarters in Atlanta on Friday amid nationwide demonstrations following the death of Minneapolis man George Floyd, with many of the protesters seen vandalizing the entrance of the building in videos posted to social media.
A crowd gathered in front of the CNN Center and grew over the course of several hours, initially breaking windows and spray-painting the CNN sign, and later throwing objects -- including what appeared to be a firecracker that exploded -- and reportedly shooting BB guns into the lobby.
The iconic CNN sign, a popular tourist destination in the downtown area, was covered with graffiti and others were seen jumping on top of the structure.
A CNN journalist captured footage of a window being shattered by the crowd, which can be heard sparking cheers.
While nobody was seriously hurt the last time that the rioters descended on CNN HQ, the network bosses are obviously concerned that the mob could quickly turn on them.
As for Atlanta, the police have been calling out in protest leaving the streets to thugs and criminals and creating a crisis for Mayor Bottoms as well as Democrats who are demanding to defund and dismantle law enforcement agencies.
