Atlanta: Black dies in police operation – sparked new protests against racism in 2020

protests against racism

The death of a black man after a police operation in the US state of Georgia has sparked protests against racism and police violence in the United States.

At night, a fast-food restaurant in the capital, Atlanta, was on fire – on Friday evening, a white policeman shot down 27-year-old Rashard Brooks on Friday evening. Local media reported that at least 36 people were arrested in protests.

The death of African American George Floyd in a brutal police operation in Minneapolis, Minnesota on May 25 has stirred up the United States and sparked a heated debate about police violence and racism. This may also explain why there were personnel consequences less than 24 hours later after the police operation in Atlanta. Police chief Erika Shields resigned. The officer who shot was fired. Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms had previously requested this and openly expressed doubts about the proportionality of the police operation: “I don’t think this was a justified use of lethal violence.” The second officer was suspended temporarily.

 

The two police officers were called to a fast-food restaurant late Friday evening. There, a man in the car queue fell asleep in a car and hindered other vehicles, said the GBI Criminal Police Office in Georgia. The 27-year-old, who was sitting in the car, did not pass a subsequent sobriety test. He should be taken into custody. Then there was a fight. Witnesses told the GBI investigators that the man had taken one of the policemen’s stun gun.

 

Then a short chase took place – on foot, in the parking lot: GBI boss Vic Reynolds explained that on video footage it could be seen that the man was fleeing from the officers, then turned around with the taser in his hand and the policeman then draw and fire his service weapon. US media showed various videos of the attempted arrest – the New York Times reconstructed the process. The officer fired three shots.

According to the GBI, the 27-year-old died in a hospital after an operation. The agency agreed to quickly collect all the facts and pass them on to the public prosecutor. GBI boss Reynolds warned of rash conclusions – and referred to the heated mood in the country. “I don’t want anyone to rush to some form of the judgment under any circumstances, which is very easy on both sides in these cases,” he said. Investigators are aware that in such cases there are “enormous feelings” involved and this is exacerbated by the current situation. The prosecutor had to assess whether it was justified that the police officer shot.

 

In a statement regarding her resignation offer, former police chief Shields wrote: “It is time for the city to move forward and build trust between law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve.” She had been lauded after George Floyd’s death for her clear stance against police violence and crackdown on Atlanta officials who were accused of assault.

 

The lawyers in the family of the killed Brooks said the police officers involved had other options than shooting him down. A taser is not a deadly weapon. “If the official had been a bit more sensitive and less anxious, we probably wouldn’t have had a dead client to complain about,” said lawyer Justin Miller. The 27-year-old had four children. He wanted to celebrate his little daughter’s birthday on Saturday. Republican Senator Tim Scott believes police operations in Atlanta are more difficult to evaluate than in George Floyd’s case.

 

After death, there were protests not only in front of the fast-food restaurant in Atlanta, according to media reports. For example, demonstrators blocked a nearby highway and caused traffic chaos there. The police also used tear gas and stun grenades against the protesters, CNN reports.

 

Police violence and racism have been the focus of public debate in the United States since Floyd’s death. In the meantime, protests in several cities led to fires and looting, and curfews were issued in some places. US President Donald Trump has repeatedly stressed the right to peaceful protests but has also called for a tough line from the forces. He also advocates strengthening the police authorities. The protests, on the other hand, are increasingly finding demands for “defunding” the police and for reallocating funds for social projects.

 

Three weeks ago, a white police officer had pressed his knee behind Floyd’s neck for almost nine minutes, despite repeated requests to let him breathe. A video of the killing is now world-famous. His words “I Can’t Breathe” have become the epitome of unequal treatment. The policeman and three colleagues involved in the operation were released, arrested, and charged. Floyd was arrested on suspicion of paying with a false $ 20 bill.

 

The demonstrations have been largely peaceful for days, but have not stopped. In many places, many people took to the streets again at weekends. On Sunday, protesters in Washington also wanted to take Trump’s birthday as an opportunity to promote the election of the president in the November 3 election. There have also been protests against racism and police violence outside the United States, such as in Australia, Great Britain, France, and Germany.

Top Steps for Using an Air Impact Wrench Tool

Top Steps for Using an Air Impact Wrench Tool

When it comes to mechanics and their tools, there are many that can be considered a ‘must-have’.  However, for any mechanic that is serious about getting the job done quickly and correctly, you will find that they all agree on one tool in general.  That tool is an impact wrench.  In fact, you can go into just about any mechanic shop and be guaranteed that they will have at least one impact wrench on a workbench somewhere.  So, what exactly is an impact wrench and would a regular person like yourself go about using one?

Impact wrenches are most commonly used to loosen up lug nuts from the tires that your cars and trucks use.  While that is going to be their most practical application, impact wrenches can also be used in just about any type of situation where there is a need for something with more torque, more commonly referred to as a high-torque situation.

Not to be confused with a similar tool that is known as an impact driver, they are going to have some very obvious differences.  The main difference between the two is that an impact driver is going to have a hex opening that is only ¼”, while your standard impact wrench is going to be able to accommodate the larger ½” inch variety of sockets, one of those sockets being the exact size required in order to take the lug nuts off of a car or truck tire.

Air Impact Wrench Popularity

Being one of the more popular tool choices in professional garages everywhere, impact wrenches are most popular for their very distinguished signature whirring sound that is made whenever they are used.  If you have ever seen any type of pit stop during an auto race, you are more than likely familiar with the sound as impact wrenches are exactly what is being used to help change the tires on the race car.

With that being said, technology has evolved the impact wrench to a much more readily available 18V version that has more than enough power to loosen just about any lug nut that has been tightened down to around 100 feet of torque.  However, even though the power and convenience of air impact wrenches have evolved, they are still a very loud tool whenever they are used.  It is due to this reason that you are going to want to make sure you practice safe garage practices and always put on the proper hearing protection whenever you are using one or are around somebody who is using one.  This is going to be especially true if you are in an enclosed area that has the potential to echo the loud noise and make it even louder.

Now that you know all about what an impact wrench is, you are probably a little curious how such a small tool can create such high amounts of torque?

When it comes to impact wrenches, they are going to get all of their immense torque from their hammering mechanism that resides within the tool and can deliver very strong and concussive blows at a very quick rate of speed.  The next time you are using an impact wrench to loosen a lug nut, be sure to pay attention to the impact wrench and you will notice that the socket that is attached to your impact wrench is actually moving very slowly while the lug nut is being loosened, but will speed up very quickly once it has become loosened.  While the high torque impact wrench is great for loosening lug nuts, you are going to want to be a little more careful if you are using the impact wrench to put them back on.  You see, when you do use an impact wrench to tighten the lug nuts on your car or tire, it is extremely easy to over-torque them, which will eventually lead to the lug nut’s threads becoming stretched or even stripped.  It is because of this that you will want to be very cautious whenever tightening the lug nuts using an impact wrench.

Conclusion

While any standard lug wrench is essentially all that you will ever require in order to loosen lug nuts and remove your car or trucks tires, if you are trying to get the job done quicker and with much more convenience for you, you are going to want to go and get yourself an impact wrench.  Plus, who can say no to pretending that they are in the pit crew at a NASCAR event?
