ATLANTA (WXIA) – Homeowners in one metro Atlanta neighborhood are questioning Xeroxed flyers that are showing up, promoting a free barbecue this Saturday.
It’s what’s on the invite that has them talking.
The community garden at Hardee and Mayson is where, according to the flyer, the barbecue is supposedly going to take place – but that’s not all it says.
Stapled to power poles around the Edgewood community, the white flyers announce the barbecue, and welcome everyone – except the police. Not only that, they use a most explicit word to say so – one which we cannot use here.
“That’s scary,” said one neighbor. “It also has a bad word. The ‘F-word’ on it.”
The ‘F-word’ is directed at police. The flyer also has a drawing of hot dogs being roasted – over a burning Atlanta police car.
“That’s how we feel about the police,” said Sammy Watson. “Like, we don’t care about them.”
