Klan thugs dressed in Georgia State Trooper uniforms handcuff and drag Black Georgia State Representative Park Cannon backwards to a cop car, arresting her for defending her constituents’ voting rights by knocking on the governor’s door at the Georgia Capitol Building. She faces serious felony charges
The governor was signing a bill straight out of the Jim Crow era denying voting rights to millions of Black Georgians.
This comes less than three months after a neo-Klan mob smashed their way into the U.S. Capitol, injuring many and even killing a cop, with the express purpose of overturning the votes by millions of people of color. They were all allowed to leave town unmolested and only a fraction of those have been arrested, mostly on minor charges.
