Roswell, Georgia – As we have discussed earlier, Atlanta homicides are up 30% in less than one year from the prior year’s numbers. General crime is up as well. Business leaders have lost confidence in Atlanta’s leader’s competence and their ability to rein in crime. The business leaders of the Buckhead Atlanta community are now in the process of discussing pulling away from the city of Atlanta to form their own City of Buckhead so they can devote and deploy more of their own police force to address the growing crime problem.
Due to mounting pressures from Atlanta Metro leaders, officials and citizens; Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms has recently announced that she will not seek re-election when her current term ends.
Business leaders and law enforcement officials recently stated that when crime spirals upward in the City of Atlanta it doesn’t just escalate in Atlanta. It spreads to the peripheral cities, counties and suburbs as well. Their prediction has unfortunately proven to be true as evidenced by the following police report from two weeks ago.
On April 30th Roswell man was stabbed during a robbery at the Exxon gas station on Holcomb Bridge Road in Roswell. Police were dispatched shortly after 12:30 am in the morning and found the 24-year-old victim lying on the ground in the parking lot of a nearby office complex with vicious stab wound in the stomach. The police said when they found the man, he was barely conscious presumably for significant loss of blood. He was lucky to be alive.
The man told police that the suspect ran up to him, stole his bag and wallet, then viciously stabbed him in the stomach and ran away. This violent criminal assailant is still at large in the area.
