ATLANTA – “The May 4, 2018, video of the Alpharetta Police violent arrest of Ms. Rose Campbell, a 65-year old African-American woman, is extremely disturbing,” stated Burrell Ellis, Political Director of the ACLU of Georgia. 

“The behavior of the officers reinforces the perception that it is dangerous for African-Americans to interact with law enforcement. The ACLU of Georgia is calling on Alpharetta officials to convene a public meeting to hear and address immediately the community’s concerns regarding the police department’s use-of-force practices, policies, and training.”
