Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms was visibly angry at a news conference during the Atlanta protests Friday, telling protesters to "go home" after they became violent and a police officer was hurt.
"What I see happening on the streets of Atlanta is not Atlanta. This is not a protest, This is not in the spirit of Martin Luther King, Jr. This is chaos. A protest has purpose. When Dr. King was assassinated, we didn't do this to our city," she said. "If you want change in Amerca, go and register to vote ... that is the change we need in this country."
She added: "If you care about this city then go home."
